This card also has the "Happy Mother's Day" on the inside, but I forgot to take a picture of it. I did 3-D the image on this one and didn't on the second one.

I love, love, love silhouette images. It reminds me of when I was younger and the lady who lived across the street from my grandmother would trace out my silhouette and frame it for my mom. I loved these images because whether for a bridal shower invitation, a card for a gift or a Mother's Day card...they all seemed to work. Naturally, I threw in the back color for gender specific. PS, I wish I looked as good as that silhouette does when I was pregnant! HAHA Mine would have been more like a beached whale waddling along instead of "skipping". But, hey, to each his own!
My friend, Emily's son is turning 5 this weekend. I made this card cause he is a boy's boy....loves anything little boys like. I found a book perfect for him at the Blueberry Patch today. And while it might be a little too old for him...he can grow into it. It gives lots of cute ideas for the outdoors. I have no clue how to shop for boys...lol

I made this book for my mom for Christmas. I didn't post it before because I didn't want her to see it...and then I forgot about posting it! LOL Anyway...it was with the Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly line. (which I adore!) The colors worked excellent with the colors in the pictures. I couldn't have asked for a better match!

I actually got asked to do two wedding cards. I loved the first one I did...the second one, I loved the saying...but I played for an hour with colors and texture and that was what I came up with. I may do something completely different before I deliver them on Monday...we'll see....but that is what I have so far.
I liked this paper (same as the rain & umbrella paper)...it gave me a daddy feel. I think it is great for Father's Day or just a note to a daddy. Maybe even a brother? Either way....I loved the vintage style of the paper.
I 3-D'd the bike too. I actually cut two and and the one is flat on the bottom while the other is on top sitting up off the paper.

I made a few of these. I loved the background paper and the little umbrellas. They actually were from the same paper line that I found a stack of at a craft store on the clearance isle (I heart sales!)
I 3-D'd the umbrella so it sits off the page and added a little note on the top. I felt that these cards were good for lifting a friends spirits or just to say hi.

I realize I've not been posting much this week...but, I'm working on a few things. I actually had someone contact me about two different wedding cards. Then, I'm working on some Mother's Day stuff and of course, we've been busy with Easter - made some really cute easter sugar cookies this week and I forgot to take a photo before the kids ate them...ALL of them! LOL Oh well, maybe next year!
