Mothers Day

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.

Maternity Cards

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!

Loads of Fun...

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

Christmas Book

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!

Wedding Bells

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.

Biking Memories

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.

Rainy Day

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.

Friday Follow

I'm so happy to be joining in again on another week of Follow Friday! I've been meeting so many new and wonderful people....not to mention reading awesome blogs!


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!
