More Cards

I am not sure what is going on with me lately, but I just love making cards! Right now, I would much rather make cards than scrapbook…..did i just say that???!!!! I think because they are quick, & easy, & you can use up your scraps. I was on a card making kick this past weekend. Lots of b-days, & I needed to make a few for the Crop Stop, but here are my cards:


I told you I was on a card making kick!

Enjoy!

Birthday Cards

March was a busy month for us with birthdays. We had my mothers, my cousins son, & our neighbors son. So, I made the cards. I don't make cards very often, but thought I would this month. So, this is what I came up with:

For my mother:



For Max, who turned 1:


For Nicholas, my cousins son:


I am not a great card maker, but they are fun & easy.

Thanks for looking.

Fun Times & Some Bunny Loves You

Here are a few more of my recent los.

This one, Fun Times, I actually used a pencil eraser to stamp the dots on a white piece of card stock. It worked perfectly! & as it turned out, it totally matched the dots on the pp. Quick & easy.



I LOVE LOVE LOVE the photo! We were at my friends house, who has girls the same age as my girls. After a long day of play, they took a bath, before getting into their jammies. It makes it easier for us too. My girls, of course, fell asleep on the way home, all we needed to do was put them in their beds. I of course "blacked out" the best part of the photo for posting purposes....but in my book there are bare naked tushies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This was Emma YEARS ago. She was not even a year old here. Posing for the 1st ever calendar that I did (which got me into scrapping, btw).

This lo was created for TES online crop challenge to scrap old photos.

Thanks for looking!

My Child & Taste of Summer

A few weeks back, The Everyday Scrapper had an online crop celebrating their birthday. I have posted some of my creations already, but here are a few more. I was on a roll!!



This lo was a scraplift of the very talented Jewels. It was an honor to scraplift her. I knew exactly what I was looking for. I had these velum sayings, & this one worked perfectly. In my digging for the velum sayings, I found the below saying as well.

This pic of the girls always cracks me up! They thought they were so cool w/ their chairs & drink in their lil pool.




And this one! We had Mommy & Me, & came home afterwards. I ran upstairs to sort laundry (I think), & thought it was awfully quiet downstairs, & she hadn't followed me up (which she normally does). When I came back down, this is what I found. So peaceful, w/ Teddy & thumb. I can't remember what we did at Mommy & Me, but it must've wiped her out!!
Thanks for stopping by to look.
Have a fabulous week!

Blue Marsh

I normally don’t post about my girls, or goings on in my life.  It is usually just all about my crafts.  However, today we had the most spectacular day together!  My girlfriend called me at the last minute & asked if I wanted to go to Blue Marsh, since it was going to be a fabulous day. It has been rainy & crummy all week, & today it was supposed to be in the 70s.   I said, sure, what the heck, so we piled the kids in the car, & headed over to the lake.  There is a playground, &  little beach at the lake, & just a lot of outdoors & nature (which Deb & I are both big fans of!).  We started out near the water, throwing stones in, & collecting leaves, & then we had lunch, & then the kids played on the playground, well, by the time we left……Well…..   Let the pictures tell the story:

They went from this:

To this:

Finally to this!!

 

I did not add the pictures of my friends son because I don’t know how she would feel about me posting her son in his underwear on my blog!!  But it was such a cute site!  Kyle actually said, “This is the most fun I’ve ever had here!”  Thanks, Kyle!  We had a great time with you too!  Just wait until you & Emma are older!  We are gonna have fun teasing you w/ these pics! 

Thanks for letting me share this with you!

Perfect Me Day

Good morning! Here is another lo that I had created over the weekend.

Yes! This would be my perfect ME day! Starbucks, a good book, & scrappy time! Hey, come to think of it, I will be w/o the girls tomorrow, dh will be working.....I just may have a "Perfect Me Day!" :o)

This lo was created using the April monthly sketch at Crop Stop, & also for a challenge at The Everyday Scrapper.
