Proud Mother

This is my favorite picture of this past weekend wedding our son Bill.  Our son is legally blind and his new wife Sara is in a wheelchair. They both are an inspiration to me.

Gosh how I love this moment. My heart is full of pride!

Never Ending Wedding Card

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW MR. AND MRS. WILLIAM ADAMS
Our son Bill married Sara on May 19, 2018



Inspired by Debbie Henderson's YouTube video HERE, I created this never-ending card.  Please take the time to leave a comment for Debbie on her video.  She so graciously spent the time to teach you how to create this card.

Deciding what size panels to place on a certain view can be frustrating.  I decided on this card that the front and back would be out of the same cardstock and panel size.  The front and back each consist of the following panels:  2 3/4" x 2" (two for each side) and 2 3/4" x 1 1/4" (four for each side).

This is only my second never-ending card and I am trying out different panel sizes as I treat each "fold" as a separate card.  It is NOT EASY and very time consuming. Unfortunately one view the sentiments are upside down - hopefully, they will quickly turn to the next view. Because there are so many layers, I had to reduce the bulk by NOT using Dimensionals.
