This past week I made a Wedding cake for a good friend of mine, daughter.  Her daughter got married on Friday.  It is a very unsual Wedding cake but was very elegant with the decor that they had for the wedding. I just wanted to share it with you.

Out of This World Birthday-Catch The Bug Challenge

I haven't had much extra time lately.  I just finished a wedding cake for a friends daughter that got married yesterday.  It has been a very busy week.  I will be posting a picture of the cake later this next week.  Probably, with my Sweet Sketch Wednesday Post. 
I slept in this morning and have just been taking it easy today.  It has been so nice.  I have been wanting to join the "Catch the Bug" Challenge Blog for the past few weeks and just haven't made it in time.  I get the images colored up and then don't find the time to finish the card.  I have several that I could put together right now.  But, today is the day,  for at least one of them.  Here it is.  Hope you enjoy.  It was a nice relaxing way to spend the day!!  :)

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments!
