Happy Mother's Day Amy

My daughter-in-law is amazing.  She is in school full time to become a CPA and also she is mom to my two beautiful but demanding granddaughters and also wife to my son Matt and dog-mom to their rescued puppy Hazel. I wanted to make her a special Mother's Day card to show my appreciation for her and enclose a gift card from Bath and Body Works for some things to pamper herself a bit.  I used this wonderful sketch from Sugar Pea Designs:

The card and gift cart went postal today so I am hoping it will arrive by the end of the week.  I have one more Mothers Day card to make this week and that one is for my mother-in-law.  How many Mother's Day cards do you make?


We Flamin-Go Together

My husband and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary....I am such a lucky girl to be married to this amazing man and he is pretty lucky too!  LOL  I wanted to make him a fun card that I could write some mushy stuff in so I whipped up this cute little card using a Bella Blvd 3x4 journaling card.  I love using pocket page cards in my makes the process easy-peasy.  I also used this Sugar Pea Designs Sketch and am entering it in their sketch challenge:

I am also entering this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Thanks for stopping by....have a wonderful day (even if it is a Monday)

Sending Canine Kisses

My friend Renata and I have been friends since 8th grade. She was my maid of honor in 1977.  She now lives in Florida also but a little further south of me.  We do however get together occasionally.  The last I saw her was in January.....that's when the above picture was taken.  We still act like goofy teenage girls when we get together.  It is her birthday this coming week (she is 3 months older than I am and I never let her forget it!).  Renata is an awesome person with a big heart and loves animals.  In fact she is very active in greyhound rescue. So I thought this card would be appropriate for her.

The image of the little girl with the puppy and the sentiment "Sending Canine Kisses" are from My Favorite Stamps and I also used their current sketch:

In addition to the MFT sketch challenge, I am also entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

That's it for now....hope you are enjoying your weekend as much as I am.

Happy Birthday Matt

Today is my oldest son's birthday.  To celebrate I made him this card.  I used the game controller background paper because we bought him and Xbox Elite controller for his birthday.  It was a little pricey but my husband said it was worth it.  We gave it to him early and he has been enjoying it immensely.

I used this awesome sketch from Viva La Verve for my card and I am linking it up to their sketch challenge.
I am also entering this card at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge and

Here is a picture of my son and his two darling girls.  I live 1000+ miles away from them but I am very excited to be going to visit them in 3 weeks.  In the meantime, I think I will call and sing happy birthday to Matt tonight.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happiest Place on Earth?

We took my granddaughter to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom when she was just 2 1/2 years old.  She clearly was not ready for the sensory overload, the crowds or standing in line.  We can laugh about it now but at the time it was not funny.  The next trip will be better.  To document this page I used this awesome sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

Thank you for checking out my is hump day so that means my work week is more than half over.....yay!!

Kick Up Your Heels & Celebrate

It is my little brother's birthday next week.  He lives in Michigan so I really need to get his card in the mail.  I came home after work today and knocked this one out before dinner.  It works best for me that way because often if I wait until after dinner I am too tired to be motivated and creative enough to get crafty.

Using this fun sketch from Your Next Stamp made this card rather simple to design.

I am also entering this card in the Tuesday Throwdown Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks for checking out my blog....I appreciate the visit.

On The Deck

I dug deep into my older stash for this collection from Authentique.  But I found this picture from a few years ago of my husband and a deck hand on the El Galleon when it was docked in St. Augustine.  I found the perfect sketch in one of the sketches over at Let's Get Sketchy:

I am also entering this page in Clique Kits Anything Goes April Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by tonight.
