An Engagement & A Birthday

Wow, what a weekend this has been. After 3 years of dating my daughter is getting married. Three weeks ago Donnie came and talked to my husband and me and asked for our blessing.  He decided he wanted to propose on their 3 year anniversary of dating. He took her to one of her favorite restaurants. She didn't even see it coming. Here are a couple of pictures I took the next day. We went back to the alley where it all took place.

The wedding won't be until next summer, thank goodness. We have spent all weekend looking and getting ideas of what she wants. Of course there will be lots of crafting involved. I get the honor of making their invitations and thank you cards. I can't wait.

Now onto the birthday. My soon to be son-in-law's birthday is next month. He's a HUGE coffee drinker..especially Dutch Bros. If you live on the West coast you've probably heard of them.

Here is his card.
I wanted to put the gift card under the "zipper". When I attached it to the card I didn't put any Score Tape on the right side so ofter it's unzipped he can get to the card. I get the feeling I'll be making lots of cards like this. So fun!

 Thank you for stopping by today.
