This didn’t turn out how I imagined.

I was going for a gift card holder type of card. I got that but not exactly what I envisioned. That ever happen to you? I like the end result but I was thinking it would be "more" girly somehow (It was the stamp set I chose). In fact, my youngest just walked in as I'm writing this and saw the photo and said "that's a *cute* card". So, now I *know* it's not girly.

I recently went to a SU! party that a friend had. I hadn't been to one since I was a demostrator a few years back. It was fun. But I certainly don't need any more stamp sets. I did get some paper… love some of those colors (not shown here ;)). Well, I got enough stuff to get a SAB set. I used one of those stamps on the front of my card. The inside has a pocket (to hold the gift card) and the birthday cake image on the insert is from Savvy Stamps, I think. To make such a quick pocket card, I used my A2 Card Pocket Die from Accucut.

That's it from here. Lots of crafting to be done as school is trying to wind down. Got the last parts to the teacher's gifts today. Maybe I can crank those out soon. Who. Am. I. Kidding?

Hope all is well with you.






Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

As I mentioned in my last post, I really need to work on getting my cards out the door ahead of time. Friday morning, sometime between 7:30am and 8:30am, I realize I *HAVE* to make my mom’s card and mail it or she’ll never get it in time. <smacks self on the head!>

Mind you, I just got one boy off to school and the other had preschool at 9am. So, in between feeding him breakfast and everyone getting showered, I made this card!

I just received my Rose Blossom Edgeability in the mail earlier this week and was dying to use it. I love Debbie Olson’s card so much that I had to get this nestability. I bought mine from with their 40% VIP Coupon (it’s monthly, go sign up for one yourself!). Anyway, I wanted to use this for my mom’s card. I really liked the result and it really was a 10 minute card. I had out my embossing gun and white embossing powder already for the school projects I’m working on, so it was easy to use that!

I used my new Pebbles Shimmer Chalks on the roses (just like Debbie did).

The Happy Mother’s Day stamp is from Stampin’ Up!, as is the Regal Rose wide grosgrain ribbon.

That’s it. I hope she likes it.

May your day be filled with laughter, love, relaxation, and crafting!

Thanks for stopping by.
