Congratuations

As I mentioned last week, the supreme court recently made headway for couples in 13 states in the US to now get legally married.  Friends at my church did so on that very Friday after the ruling.  I made this card for them using a beautiful image from Ike's Art.  They have already been together for 13 years and have two adorable adopted kids who are just a delight.  I wish them all the best.  May everyone treat others the way they would like to be treated, with love, dignity and respect.

Have a blessed week everyone.

Going to share this card with the people over at the Ike's art challenge, but this card is not for their challenge this week as their challenge is about Fantasy!  But this card is no longer Fantasy, this is reality! But I do want to share it there as I very much appreciate the owner for getting the image to me immediately Friday night so I could get the card done in time for church on Sunday (Thanks Sue Eisnehauer!)  I have another fantasy card coming for the challenge later this week!

Cheers, Holley

  14. CONGRATS to the happy couple!!! I am so glad they were able to celebrate in the way they should have been able to since the beginning of mankind!!!! I had asked Ike to sketch the two women and two men because no other artist had, and I knew Ike was JUST the ARTIST who would - who had the soul to put out into the public something that would allow people to take it or leave it. I love her for that - for exactly the reason you have stated - that it allows you to give your friends a gorgeous card that celebrates THEM and their love and their family unit. JUST beautiful JUST part of our glorious beingness on this planet. Way to go Holley! Best, Samara DT IWC
