I hope you all had a fantastic Mother's Day!! Mine was pretty super! I'm afraid I am going to have to show-off for a minute here. My 7 year old, Maddie, headed up the Mother's Day committee around here and made me several unbelievable gifts! She put a card together for me that had a colored image from her, Hunter, and my hubby:
These were both made at school. (love that she called me a rock star!)
This new paper cutter was exactly what I told my hubby I wanted!
And this cool bag was free from Michaels for National Scrapbooking Month!!
So as you can see, my day was pretty great!
That's my little mastermind behind some of my wonderful gifts! These stupid glasses from her school carnival crack me up! (she also got a back-scratcher, she's crazy!)
Last Friday, my bestie Kim and I, went to a small stamping craft fair and found these items:
This isn't supposed to be sideways, don't know what's going on.
I got my first Stamping Betty and Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!!! We also purchased some products from a company called Close To My Heart. I had never heard of them before, and they had some really neat stuff!
I have actually finished two cards that are for upcoming weddings! (it's that time of the year!)
This is the Kissy Kissy couple from The Greeting Farm's digital stamps.
The first couple I colored had more earthy tones, while the second was very traditional black/white. It's a bit tough to make out, but those are little wedding rings tied to the bows. I thought they were a fun touch and I am glad I grabbed them when I saw them at Hobby Lobby. Another little detail that is hard to see, is the glitter powder I used on the sentiment. It's actually embossing powder that I used after I initially stamped the sentiment in black. (never can see the cool stuff in pics!) I used some MS edge punches on both cards just for a little extra something, without being too girlie!!! On the first card, I didn't take the punch all the way to the ends, I didn't want to completely remove the bottom edge. I really like the ribbon on the second card, and I'm going to have to get more wire ribbon like it! I was pretty happy with their hair. One of my most favorite hair combos lately is E15, E09, E18. (that's the second girl's hair.)
I am off today to watch a "chick flick" with my friend Kim. We have to get our movie watching done before the kids get out of school for the summer! We're going to see "The Lucky One", hope it doesn't make me cry.
