Owly Graduate...

OK, so as I am looking at Frenchie,s blog again, I came across a bag topper she did for graduation and loved it so much I made it into a card!!!  This is such a cute idea and my TCN girls incorporated their own twist to it!  I taped the owl head together and stamped my saying inside, but the girls left the head untaped and stamped inside the head!  How clever is that!!!  Easy to make this for any school colors as all that is needed is to change out 2 layers of the eyes and the cap....  For the tassel all I did was get a wide satin ribbon tied it with the hemp and then cut strips in cute and fun is this!!!

Easter Smiles

Here is the 2 page layout I did for my Therapy Scrap Nite in April.  I took the concept of one of the cards we did at last months Therapy Card Nite and incorporated it into this layout.  I really liked how it turned out, from the textured bunny to the cut grass and the die cut letters...  Got to say there is nothing like the big shot to really put an easy WOW into something!!!

Mothers Day 2012

Mother's Day was a bit of an up and down rollercoaster for us due to the 1 month anniversary of my MIL passing and another death in the family.  So I am behind in posting, again.  Here are the 3 Mother's Day cards I made and gave out...

This one is a bit of a CASE card.  I came across this as a swap from a while back and as I did  not have the same stamps or dsp I used what I had and ended up with something very similar.  This is the first time I ever made these flowers and I love them!!!  Hoping to do a similar card next for Therapy Card Nite soon. 

This one I just love!  Same basic concept as an earlier card I've posted, but for Mother's Day.  Loved how the Basic Gray and Blushing Bride looks together, although this picture does not do it justice!  Girls at TCN seemed to like it alot too!

Can hardly believe this stamp set is going into retirement!!!  I really liked the little sayings it had with it.  I like how the Scallop Trim Corner Punch sets of the saying.  This one was super stamp, two punches and wala....

Flowered Kindness

Ok, so they say inspiration can come from anywhere and so this was from I shirt my sister was wearing in church.  It was so neat, it was actually a black shirt with flowers + leaves with all these colors....I know it's hard to see, but I did use 2 of the 3 different greens that was in the shirt.  When I saw it I knew right away I would use the triple flower punch!!!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Build a Bear Birthday...

Sad to say that these stamps are retiring this year!  They made such good kid cards that could go from super simple to WOW!  Like the card I made with the girl bear to do a Wizard of Oz card.  These cards are great to just leave black and white to let the child receiving do their own coloring....
