Okay, so my son gets invited to a birthday party and I get so excited to pull out my cutie patootie tremendous treats stamps! I had to double my fun, because he was invited to a party for twin six year old girls. The party was at the Wisconsin Humane Society, but gratefully(?) I did not take home a new friend for my doggie Daphne! Even though my sweet three year old thought it was a great idea for Father's Day! Here are my two cards, I used the same basic layout, but different color schemes. I also used the Background Basics: Medallions set (because I just LOVE it!) to add a background pattern to ground my images. Let me know what you think of these cards...hope I made the girls smile:)
So, there is always time to restart a blog...right? I have had a busy school year teaching my 3rd and 4th graders. I also have such a beautiful family that has needed my strength over this year. That's what I have been up to, but I have not stopped crafting. Here's my latest creation, just hoping to tap into Betsy Veldman's amazing talent for her Make it Monday Challenge for Papertrey Ink. I used some score tape to create the borders that separate the card sentiment visually from the pretty peonies. I used winter wisteria to stamp the peonies and the sentiment. The word happy was cut from Winter Wisteria cardstock with the Pretty Peonies die set. I can't wait to play with the pretty peonies dies again, so much fun! I had to add some pizzazz with the aqua glitter...too much fun!
