Happy Anniversary!!

Let me begin by telling you that my parents have been married FOREVER!! Literally - this is not an exaggeration!! Well, maybe a little bit . . . They were married when my mom was only 17 and they were married 16 years before I was born so on June 3, they will have been married 56 years!! Isn't that amazing?! In other news, my goal is to make one card per day. I know this won't happen every day, but I am desperate to get back into papercrafting on a semi-regular basis and I'm hoping this little goal will help me do that. So, today's card is for my parents' upcoming anniversary. I found my inspiration on SCS in the form of this card by Sharon Johnson whose blog I believe I used to follow! I hope my sweet parents have a wonderful anniversary!!

Party Hearty!!

I have so missed my daily stalking of my favorite blog, Me, My Stamps and I!! But today, I needed a birthday card for a friend and I had a little time to make one, so I looked to see what Chat had been up to. After scrolling through several of her most recent beautiful projects, I found this one that I loved and had all of the "ingredients" needed to make it! I love how Chat used the row of party hats to create a banner just by closely trimming them out. Super cute and simple! Thanks for stopping by!!

Welcome Home, Wayward Stamper (part 2)

I know you're tired of looking at those thumbprint cookies! They're pretty, but not very exciting, so here is the card I made today for a friend who recently lost her grandmother. Branch Out is a wonderful stamp set to use when you haven't stamped in awhile, but I still had to consult SCS for an idea. I found this beautiful card and thought it was a perfect sympathy card. I sponged the background instead of brayering it like the original. I love Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery together, but I think Blush Blossom is a non-color and not one I use very often. I might try a different background color if I make this card again. Thanks for stopping by!
