Giveaway Winners!

It was so wonderful to host two fantastic giveaways last week – and I’m even more thrilled to finally announce the winners!  Both winners were selected randomly using random.org, and the two lucky readers are…

Yay!  Laurel chose the “Ava” design from Gwyneth Paige for her calling cards, and Greg chose the “Tahoe” invitation suite from Hello!Lucky for his December 2010 wedding right here in DC!  A big congratulations to both Laurel and Greg – and a huge thank you to both everyone who entered the contest and to Gwyneth Paige and Hello!Lucky for sponsoring these two giveaways!

Hand Painted Watercolor Vintage Garden Rose Invitation Suite

Summer is officially here in DC – and while I could definitely do without the muggy heat and humidity, summer brings roses, and this year there are tons of them in our neighborhood!  So when Courtney sent over this vintage-inspired garden rose wedding invitation suite that she created for a recent bride, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect for early summer:

From Courtney: I created this for one of my brides, Sarah, for her California vintage inspired wedding.  I hand painted each one individually in various shades of pinks with touches of lavender, browns, and golden yellows – making sure to paint each one just a little different from the one before!

{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  I’m anxious to get a start on the weekend, particularly since I get to hang out with this awesome lady (and amazingly talented writer) tonight!  Other than that, I’m looking forward to a relaxed, lazy weekend and escaping this swealtering summer heat.  Hmmm… maybe strawberry lemonade with some of my remaining strawberry supply?  Anyway, I’ll be back next week with Father’s Day cards and lots, lots more!  But in the meantime…
