Happy Birthday To You!

A few days ago our oldest daughter turned NINETEEN! Wow, how time goes by. When she came into my life she was nine. I can't believe ten years have passed and I have been blessed to watch her grow into a beautiful young woman. Here is the card I made for her special night, using all of her favorite colors.

Stamp set is Bodacious Bouquet. Colors used: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Pink Passion and Whisper White. I embossed all the large flowers and love how it turned out!

Baroque Motif

I love this set. It is so soft and so much can be done with it. I have seen some beautiful cards made with this. I made this one very quickly, like 10 minutes quick! It uses the colors of Bashful Blue, Winter White, Close to Cocoa in cardstock. Ink is Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, and Bordering Blue.

Embossing is cool!

Here is another card made with Bodacious Boquet. It's a great set. So versatile. This card uses fourteen brads, Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White ink and cardstock. I think my class tonight really enjoyed it, but it does take some work! The brads was an idea I picked up on another site as part of a challenge. I don't think I have ever used this many brads on anything before. But I love the results.
Card cased from Splitcoaststampers website, and altered.

Cards suited for a man...

I love this set, Noble Deer. It's been around for a while, but I still find that I use if often for cards made for men. I really like the soft tones of the Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla cardstock.

Wow Stamp Night!

Here is one of the cards we did for our WOW class last night. This is a criss cross card. I fell inlove with these cards. I think they would make BEAUTIFUL wedding invitations!

I love to stamp! I love to make cards.

I love being a Stampin' Up! Demo. Is there anything better than a piece of wood with rubber on it! I think not! LOL Here is a simple card I did a few days ago. Hopefully tomorrow I can post my Wow cards from our stamping class held last night. Beautiful cards if I do say so!

A few layouts...

This was a challenge for TSOS. My journaling is hidden on tags. It contains my feelings on turning 36, having my last child, and facing the new direction of my life. Pretty emotional stuff!
I do not do enough layouts about me. But I'm trying. The challenges help. I know that my history has to be left behind for my kids and grandkids. I just don't like pictures of me! :)

One Of My Favorites!

Completed this a while back, but it's become one of my FAVORITES!

Cayla was just two weeks old. So very sweet.
All of my flowers were cut with Cricut, and
I used my fingernail to "curl" the edges.
I just love how it all turned out.
Hard to imagine she is now one and I am so
very far behind! LOL
