Woodsy Cake Topper

I've been searching around for awhile now for the perfect cake topper. I saw several cute ones on etsy but they were just too pricey for me, especially since many of them  I could possibly make myself. So a few weeks ago Tim and I went to Michaels and picked out some fake foliage, a nest and two fake birds. He was actually into helping - what a guy! So anyhow one afternoon, I gathered my tacky glue, some white fabric scraps and dried moss...and here's what I came up with:

I know, pretty corny but I get a big kick out it!

Round 2 - Rehearsal Dinner Invitations

I've been very busy lately with tons of wedding projects. My latest are the rehearsal dinner invites. The design I used was originally one of my ideas for the wedding invitations themselves so I'm excited I still got to use this idea for something else. I printed the information on the note cards and hand stamped the faux bois/wood grain stamp on each of them. A new addition to my stamp collection is a small pine cone; I used it on each of the green envelopes. I love how crisp they turned out! There's something vintage about it - I'm excited to use it again. Here are the pics, enjoy!
