 Here is  another sample card that I made and brought with me for my day of stampin' with the girls that I went to a couple weeks ago. I really liked this layout I saw it on a card some time ago and for the life of me can't remember where and by whom. I did make some minor adjustments to the layout and used new DSP and accessories. I just loving the new comfort cafe DSP and love the color combination of it this designer paper is perfect and very versatile, it can be used for a very famine card or masculine which is great when wanting to create those masculine cards for the men/boys in your life.

love & laughter

 I'm off to a wedding today, I love weddings I think they are so fun and pretty. It's a outdoor wedding so I'm crossing my fingers that mother nature is kind especially since it's been so windy here.  I get to spend time with family and I'm excited to get to see all the decorations that my cousin Niki created which I'm sure will be amazing. This is the card that I will be giving to the happy couple. I was having trouble getting a good clear pic for some reason {must be operator error}.

Betsy's Blooms

 Here is another card sample that I made for my stamp day with the girls. I decided to do a gate fold with one of our new framelits. I'm really loving this new Betsy's Blossoms stamp set and it's coordinating wheel and Floral District DSP. Love the bright cheery colors. The Betsy's Blossoms stamp set have this wonderful flower burst that works great with the rock n roll technique which is I used to create the flower. Not to mention its large enough to punch a fancy flower out of. Well I better run I have a busy busy day today but thought I sneak a moment to post a sneak peek.

 Happy Sunday! I had a lot of fun stampin' the day away with my stampin' sisters yesterday. My friend Kim put this event together it's pretty fun to just be able to hang out with the girls and see how they put there new goodies to use. We make several samples and bring them to share, you can either case the samples, tweak them a bit or you can use them as inspiration which ever way you choose. There were several of us demo girls that got together so it was a fun filled day of laughing and creating as well as making new friends. This is one of the sample cards that I made for the day. Can you point out the sneak peeks in this card??? Let me help you the leaves in the background and the image stamped for the flower and that cute little thank you banner! Anything else?

Happy Mother's Day!

A Mother loves right from the start.
She holds her baby close to her heart.
The bond that grows will never falter.
Her love is so strong it will never alter.
A Mother gives never ending Love.
She never feels that she has given enough.
For you she will always do her best.
Constantly working, there's no time to rest.
A Mother is there when things go wrong.
A hug and a kiss to help us along.
Always there when we need her near.
Gently wipes our eyes when we shed a tear.
So on this day shower your Mother with Love.
Gifts and presents are nice but that is not enough.
Give your Mother a day to have some peace of mind.
Be gentle, be good, be helpful, be kind.
Happy Mothers Day!
