White upon White upon White

It is a very HOT and WINDY day here in San Diego and it has taken the sweet spring mood away like a bomb! So it's great that I am finished with my Spring swap cards.

The theme for the monthly card and tag swap with A Swap For All Seasons is white for May, and I knew immediately what I wanted to create.  I have been having so much fun making little dresses out of paper, and a wedding dress would be so perfect for the theme! I was assigned Joyce to send my creations to so I was hoping that they would be special. Joyce is the first person that sent me cards in this group and they were so lovely.




Here are the cards that I got from Wendy Wirth:



Linking with Pink Saturday.

So beautiful! If you hadn't told me that dress was made of paper I would have been sure it was fabric! Love them both!

I am so lucky to be looking at these right now...in my home! Thank you, Marti. They are 100 times more beautiful in person than any photo could show...but I'll try!
love all of the doodads, too!

Hi Marti,

First, belated thanks for your visit to The Marmelade Gypsy last week and your lovely comments on the macarons. I fear I'm so behind in blog visiting and checking things out -- much less replying to comments.

Your cards are fabulous. I especially love the wedding dress card -- maybe I have weddings on the brain lately with the youngest planning the aisle trip next month!

And I was looking down at your peat pot. I posted a bunch I did around Easter, too. Boy -- once you get started on those, it's hard to stop. I love 'em and yours was wonderful.

Many happy cheers to you today! -jeanie

Marti,
Your tag and especially that card are out of this world! I commented on Joyce's post that it looks like a Project Runway winner! You are crazy talented!
