Hello. I must apologize for not getting around to visit as much as I would like lately. My most recent house guests left today--I did get to spend several hours in my craft room with my mom. Mostly, she was admiring all of my cards and selecting which ones she wanted to bring home with her, and I was basking in her praise and admiration as well as making a few cards for her. She has two friends who will be celebrating milestone birthdays soon, and she wanted something age specific for them.
I was able to use the same basic layout, but changed lots of the details to make a card for a woman and another for a man. And, no--they are not married to each other..
My mom loves puzzles, so when I saw the Lil Inker Piece of Me set, I had to get it. I did not have time to make anything for my mom before she visited, so I pulled together these quick cards while she was here. Thanks so much, Amy, for the inspiration. I used this week's ColourQ #249 for color inspiration.
I had made a set of mini note cards with patterned paper mini envelopes when my MIL was here last week, and my mom decided to take that set as a gift for a friend.
They all fit into a little gift bag that I made with the We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board.
My mom is a Certified Chocoholic (me too!!) and I had a bunch of chocolate stamps out to show her. I only had a chance to make one chocolate card, and owe her a bunch more using other images. I am excited to complete the set. It will be a delicious project.
Last up is a card I had such fun making. I used the sketch at Seize the Sketch #24, and paper pieced everything using Echo Park So Happy Together. This stamp is NBUS and it is called Ilovetoshopabella and I think it is from Joann's.
Well, that's it for me for this weekend. I hope you all have a great week.
Thanks for Visiting
