It's All About A Muse and Weddings

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I know I sure did! There were a series of great events that kept me smiling. First I got to spend some nice time with the kids and hubby. Saturday was spent looking at wedding venues in the pouring rain, for my DD's special day. She will probably shoot me for this, but I must share just one picture of the place she has chosen. She wanted rustic and I think we found it, but I would call it more rustic elegance!
Next, when she arrived on Friday evening, she came toting goodies she had scored at her local stamp/scrap store. She told me this whole story about how she had fallen in love with this group of stamps from A Muse, called "everything's rosy". I had won a couple of these stamps from a blog hop, so I knew how awesome they are. Here are a few cards I made with the stamps she shared.

As we were stamping, I remembered I had left a comment on the A Muse blog and went to check out the winners. You guessed it, I was a winner of an amazing gift pack because I correctly guessed the yards of ribbon in a gumball machine! Woo hoo!
Here is what I won!

I am truly blessed by all the good things that have happened recently, but I am also blessed by you friends, that allow me to share it with you. Thank you.
