Baby Cards

Hi Everyone :-)

I have been a card making fool the past few nights since I'm going on vacation soon. We are heading for our annual beach vacation and I am so looking forward to it.

My bestfriend Kelli asked me to make her a card for a baby shower she is going too in the next couple of weeks. These are the two I came up with for her to choose from. I went to JoAnns tonight and bought the DCWV Nana's Nursery Paper Packs that were on sale. Love the papers in this stack. They are on sale this week too which is even better!

I used my cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder and both stamps are Stampin Up.

Thanks for looking!

WOW...11 days since my last post!

I'm sorry I've been MIA... life has just been hectic lately! I hope everyone is doing well and had a nice weekend. I have been able to craft a little and have some cards to share with you tonight.

The first card is the card I made my dad for Father's Day.. he really liked it :-)

  • Stamps: Gina K. Designs - Kindred Spirits; Leaf stamp by Autumn Leaves
  • Cardstock: Basic Grey and Whisper White by SU. Card is pre-made by Halcraft 6 1/2" by 5"
  • Prismacolor Pencils and OMS

This is the first year I have given hand made cards since I just started stamping in January. My mom loved her Bella Mother's day card and my dad loved his too. I even made my husband a card but I haven't photographed it yet. I'll try to post that one later this week.

The card above was cased from Beate over at Fresh and Fun.

You can find the directions to make this card on her blog here.The three cards above are more cards I made on Friday night when a couple of my stamping friends came over to make cards.. Amanda, Lynn and I had a blast. The middle and last card were made using a template I found on SCS. This template uses 3 12X12 pieces of card stock and you can make 12 cards from these 3 pieces of cardstock.

One last note: I will be posting a great Blog Candy Give-away tomorrow night! You won't want to miss it!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Diploma In Hand

Bennie, Kristina and me before the ceremony
Kristina walking in to her seat.
Kristina's boyfriend Kevin flew in from Camp Pendleton to participate in the Honor/Color Guard. That's him in his dress blues.
Diploma In Hand.... does she look happy???

We had a wonderful day yesterday as we celebrated this big milestone. Yes, I cried. My baby is no longer a baby anymore. After the ceremony we went to dinner with a group of 21 people and had a great meal and lots of laughs and good conversation. It was a wonderful day!!
