Whirlwind of a weekend...and a card

Wow! what a weekend we had...not only did we travel 8 hours by car to attend Chad's brother's wedding...but on the way (our first 8 hour leg on friday) our tire blew...and we sat for a while in the dark until some help arrived! We determined that Jackson (our oldest) is not the best to have in "emergency" situations...his little active mind really starts working overtime ;)

The wedding was Saturday. It was a lovely union and the day brought the best weather. I unfortunately forgot my camera at home so I don't have any photos to share of the bride and groom...but they both looked really good and were both glowing....it was a very nice occasion.

My wedding gift was a "hit"! I only wish I would have taken a photo (can you tell my life is a bit on edge lately). The groom did say that it was their "favorite gift"...which is just too sweet of them :) What I did was have a 18x18 tile cut in half and then put "Wuthrich Family" across the bottom in vinyl and est. 2008 just above that...wrapped it in cellophane, ribbon, a leaf or 2 and a card...added in a easel. It was really simple and I would defentley do it again for a wedding...and the best part is...they loved it :)

Sunday we headed for home...and well...we ran out of gas! LOL Let me explain...for some reason the Tahoe when you run it on cruise control for a long time it doesn't register the gas gage correctly...and going through Wyoming you can go miles and miles without seeing anything...well it said we had 64 miles left...which would have brought us to the next town...but well it didn't...so we again sat in the car waiting for help LOL!

I joked with my husband that they were going to know us by the time our next trip came around...;) So we end the trip with 4 new tires, a large gas bill, way to much fast food...and a priceless union of a cute couple.

So this week at page plans I was able to get a card done before I left town. This card is based off of Chris's Sketch...and here it is...



Well I better head off to get ready for the day. We are down to 2 school days left and I have an icecream party for the class today...it should be fun!
