Stampin Royalty 137

This was my take on the wonderful sketch challenge by the ladies at Stampin Royalty. These ladies really have some of the best challenges around.  I love looking to their samples for inspiration.  This card started out being Midnight Muse on VV card stock, but I decided to switch the two so that the colors wouldn't overlap.  I used our 2012-2013 DSP, Comfort Cafe.  When I saw the Paper Piercing packs, I knew I had to get them.  I just tried them out for the first time with this card.  You can't make out the piercing on the saying, but if you look close enough, you may be able to see it on the edgelit.  I hope you like my take on this sketch! Thanks for visiting!!

SSC 259 Kid Birthday

I totally missed the deadline for this sketch, but I figured I'd post it anyway because it took me FOREVER to come up with this card.  I don't know why I struggled so much (I think it had more to do with the colors I chose than the actual sketch itself).  I have very few kids birthday cards, and I think it's time to stock up since my girls have been invited to quite a few birthday parties recently.  I like the way this ended up but I think I would use different colors next time.  I hope you like it!

SSSC160 Get Well

My mother had asked for a few Get Well cards and since I just recieved my new Thoughts & Prayers stamp set, I figured I'd put it to good use.  I saw the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and used it as my template for the card.  I'm not very fond of the way the color combo and DSP came out so I'm contemplating making a new card, but for now, we'll see if she likes it.

Doctorate Graduation

Here is another graduation card that I made for my younger cousin's graduation. My aunt had ordered a card from me and all I had for a stamp was the Go up in the Direction of Your Dreams that had been pre-stamped from a wish list swap. I love the silver glimmer paper and I used it again for this card. I hope you like it!!!

Mother's Day Card a Little Late

Here is the Mother's Day card I made for my aunt. She has always been a second mother to me, and I wanted to let her know how much I appreciate all she does for me. There have been a million times that she will take the girls so I can go to a dr apt or school meetings, etc. She's a single mother of triplets, all on the honor roll in high school. To me, she's one of The Best moms out there.
This card is a center step card, which is super easy to make. I used my scallop trim border on the edges to make the card a bit more fancy. The DSP is SU!'s sneak peak from the 2012-2013 catalog, Floral District. I'm in love with this DSP!!! I hope you like the card.

Happy Mother's Day

This is my second try at a cascading card. I had seen one on Pinterest and thought it would be The perfect design for a Mother's Day Card. I used my new Floral District DSP that I ordered from the new catalog sneak peak. I love Rich Razzleberry and Lucky Limeade so it was a perfect combo for the card. I added the beautiful wing embosslits for some pop on the card. I hope you like it!

Summer Smooches Thank You

On Saturday we had my beautiful daughter Sofia's 1st birthday party.  30 of our wonderful relatives joined us in celebrating.  Above is the Thank You card I whipped up to thank everyone for the amazing gifts they gave her.  Below that is a picture of my four girls getting ready to help Sofia blow out the candles on her birthday cupcakes.  She had so much fun with all of her cousins.  I hope you like the card!
