Birthday Card

TGIF!!!!!  I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm so ready for the weekend to begin!!  I made this birthday card for my son last night for his special day today.  Being that he's a boy, I didn't want anything fancy or flowery of course.  I just heat embossed a sentiment from a rock/grunge stamp set all across the card for a background, stamped a star from the same stamp set, used numerals from a Martha Stewart stamp set, SU Curly Cute stamp set, circle and scallop punch and Not Quite Navy SU card stock.

Card and Mini Album

Happy Monday!  I wanted to share with everyone the card I made for my dad.  My mom has been having health issues for 2 months now and will be having surgery in 2 weeks.  It has taken a toll on my dad taking care of her and worrying about her.  I normally make my mom a card every week but this week it's my dad's turn.  It's a simple masculine card that I made with only patterned paper scraps, and a stamped sentiment. 

I made this mini album for my sisters bridal shower gift so she can put pictures of that special day.  Hope you enjoy!

Bridal Shower Thank You Cards

I decided to make my sister bridal shower thank you cards at the last minute.  And it was literally last minute like at 10 p.m. last night.  I enjoyed every minute of it though.  I finished at midnight and boy am I paying for it today!!  I used the scraps from her bridal shower invitations and her wedding invitations.

Bridal Shower Favors

Good morning everyone.  I finished a few projects I had been working on the past couple of days.  The favors are Knotts Berry Farm 1 oz. Marmalade jars.  I covered them with my own labels, inked them with Tangerine Tango, and ribbon from local Joanne's store.

I added a small paper flower with a silver brad at the last minute.  I like it, it give it that extra little something.

Next is the cups.  I bought them at Walmart and jazzed them up just a bit so they are not so boring.  I printed everyones names on pc and punched out with SU word window punch and popped them with dimensionals on SU modern label punch.  I also adhered what is my version of doves using SU bird punch.  I used rhinestones for the eyes and inked them with bashful blue.

These napkins were also purchased at Walmart.  I just ran them through my Vagabond Machine using SU Manghattan Flower embossing folder to give them a more elegant look.

Just Because Card

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.  I was so busy getting ready for my daughters surprise birthday party as well as finishing my sisters wedding invitations and getting ready for her bridal shower too.  I normally make my mom a card every week and even though I was tired, I made this one for her.  I'm not happy with this one but my mom doesn't know the difference, she is just happy that I send her a card every week because I love her.  So don't judge me too hard everyone!!!!

Wedding Invitation

It's almost Friday everyone!!  I hope everyone is revved up for the long weekend!!  I want to share with you today the wedding invitations I made for my sister.  She's having a very simple wedding ceremony and reception.  She only wanted a cream color so I popped the second piece up with dimensionals.  Of course she wanted shells on it since it's a beach wedding.  I punched the corners and added pearl accents.  I used SU Close to Cocoa and Always Artichoke for the stamped image.  Give me your feedback on this.  Thanks for looking!!!
