So I just couldn't wait to share this, plus after today I will be busy setting up for our wedding so I will have no time to post after this. Then it is off to our honeymoon for two weeks, Jamaica here we come!!!
Today I want to share with you all the gorgeous (I'm bias, sorry ;-) ) card that I made for my husband-to-be for our wedding day. I came across this super cute Bride and Groom image by Mo's Digital Pencil and I just knew it was the perfect image for my card. I was also inspired by this card that I saw on SCS. I knew I wanted to go in ivory/white tones and I also wanted make the card super special by using some left over material from our wedding invitations. I used the left over Quartz Stardream Metallic Cardstock as well as the left over Casa Collection Sheer Satin Edge Ivory Ribbon.
I love how it turned out!! Check it out!!!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed, now it's is off to pick up my wedding gown from getting pressed. Next time you see me I will no longer be a Miss but a Mrs., I am so excited!!!

9 days to go!!! So in these past few day I have been doing last minute things to prepare for the wedding as well as moving into my new home. I am almost all moved out, but I still haven't moved my stamping room because I still had things to create. Today was the first time in quite some time that I have sat down to stamp. I had one task in mind, wedding, seems to be the trend. First was to make my husband-to-be a wedding card and second was to create some simple Thank You cards for my Bridesmaids. Today I want to share with you my simple Thank you cards. Enjoy!!
As I stated I also made my Husband-to-be a card but as much as I really want to share it with you because I totally love how it came out I'm going to wait just a few more days to share it with you, so stay tuned. I will be sure to post it sometime between now and my wedding, May 28th!! 9 days to go!!!

The time has finally arrived, it's May and my wedding is 21 days away!! I can't believe it is almost here!!!! Today I want to share with you my Pocket Fold Wedding Invitations, which were designed and created by me and all 270 invites went through my hands as I cut, glued, and blinged each one. That's a lot, I know!!! So here they are.
I hope you have enjoyed, I'm not sure when the next time that I post will be but 20 days is going to go by very quickly so I better get to work on my last minute wedding preparations. Next time I come around I will no longer be Miss Borges, I will be Mrs. Sousa!!! I am so excited!!!
So since I have been into making Digital Photo Greeting Cards what better than to create my Shower Thank You Cards. This first one was printed as just a flat 6x7 1/2 Greeting Card while the other two, one in English and the other in Portuguese, were printed as 5x7 Folded Greeting Cards. Enjoy!!!
If you see something you like feel free to contact me so that I may create something for you.Thanks
Sorry about my absence, just 2 months until my wedding so we are trying to get things wrapped up around here. The other day was my bridal shower so I wanted to share some bridal shower cards that I put together as samples. Enjoy!!
The card I used for my shower is the one above on the left. I hope you have enjoyed. If you see something that you just have to have for your next event please let me know and I can put something together for you. Just let me know. Thanks!!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year. Yeah it's 2011 and just 4 months to go for my wedding. I am so excited!!!
Today I want to share another one of my Digital Photo Greeting Cards with you all. My fiance's nephew just turned one and we had lil construction party for him and I took some pictures of him cruzin' with his favorite toy in the backyard. I put these cards together for him to thank all his family and friends for making his 1st Birthday Special.
This first card is actually the truck image that was his invitations and I just did some editing and turned it into a photo card.
Check them out, Ryan is such a cutie!!
I hope you have enjoyed today's post. If you are interested in a Photo Greeting card, let me know and I would be glad to create one for you. Have a great day!!!
Well with Christmas around the corner and my wedding 6 months away I figured it would be a great idea to make a Christmas Save the Date card, a two for one deal. I put a few of our favorite pictures together and and made one card for both events and some that were just Christmas cards.
I know it has been quite some time since I have posted anything but I have been busy with wedding planning and working but I did want to come on a share something a little different that I have been working. As you might remember I am in to Photography and lately I have been playing with Photoshop. So this Christmas I thought why not make my own Christmas Cards using Photoshop and pictures.
So here are a few takes on the card that I made for my in-laws. Enjoy
This last card was the card my mother-in-law chose. I hope you enjoyed, and will be back to see a few more that I made.
I made these Thank You cards for my graduation...that was May 22nd, I am posting them a lot later than I mailed them but I still mailed them out pretty late!!! It was a little embarrassing but better late than never, so here are a few that I made!!
