Tell Me More (Getting to know me, getting to know you!)

I ususally participate in the Wee Bit Wednesday over at Leigh Ashley's every week, but sad to say, she is taking a break right now due to her super busy schedule.

Therefore...I have decided to give a go at a questionaire myself!

Tell Me More on Tuesdays...except I'm going to start today, on Thursday :)

10 totally random questions to get to know each other and have some fun! we go!

1. Can you whistle?
Yes, but I'm not very good at it! I didn't learn how to whistle until I was in 6th grade, and even then I could only do so by sucking air in. I can whistle both ways now, but it's nothing spectacular! haha

2. Do you sleep with the light on?
Not usually, unless I fall asleep before actually going to bed. I can sleep with the light on or off though...lucky me :)

3. Can you tough your nose with your tongue.
Nope! Haha, yes, I did just try it too! I think I only made it half way.

4. Can you open your eyes under water?
Yes, but I'm usually too scared to! Not only am I worried my eyes will hurt afterwards, but I wear contacts and I'm scared they'll come off underwater...

5. Do you like thunderstorms?
Not particularly. I'm not a big fan of thunder and lightening and I HATE driving in the rain.

6. Do you shower daily?
Honestly? No. I do like to shower everyday, especially b/c if I don't, I feel like crud. But there are days I just don't feel like it or hit the snooze button one too many times. I never ever skip more than one day though! Ew.

7. Do you sing in the shower?
Sometimes :)

8. What kind of car do you drive?
A black Nissan Altima.

9. How many keys are on your key ring?
Three. My house key, the key to my MOH's apt and my grandparent's house key.

10. What do you do for a living?
I'm a sales associate at a clothing retail store.

Bridesmaid Cards :)

Even before my engagement I thought about who I wanted by my side on my wedding day.
After I was finally engaged, I knew I didn't want to just ask "Hey, will you be in my wedding?"
I had to do something crafty of course!

What did I do? I made cards for my friends asking that they be my Bridesmaid :)

BTW...these are my colors :) ...kinda, haha. Coral and Yellow. wedding will be in Sept, so if I have trouble getting coral, it'll be pink.

I got the idea for a card while browsing Etsy.

I saw this one at Kilgore Custom Designs...but wanted more of a traditional card.

....and I loved the wording on these cards from The Inspired Note...even the fonts... I combined the ideas, added my own ideas, and LOVED the outcome :D

I used my Silhouette to cut out the shapes and icky spray adhesive to put it all together!

Here are a few pictures...sorry some are blurry :/

I cut out a solid piece of "coral" and a yellow leaf design.

Then printed my words and out for the inside of the card.

...glued these two together...

...and then glued it to the outside of the card.

I found this dress shaped card (w/o the design on it) in the silhouette shop. I just sliced it in half to get singles of the dress. The design and sash I added and printed on white cardstock to begin w/ ...but then decided I didn't like it w/ my yellow leaf design.

I also used my silhouette to cut out these name tags.

...rhinestones, pearls, ribbon...

And my end result :)

Hope you love them as much as I do! my friends said YES.

If you don't feel crafty, then definately check out the Etsy shope I mentioned above, b/c they have some super cute cards you can buy!
