4th of July card

Where has the time gone? Today is June 30... This summer is flying by faster than ever.
Kathi had posted a card challenge over at HSS for the month of June and I had such good intentions of getting lots of cards made, but that once again didn't happen. I did get a chance to make a card this morning - an invitation for the 4th of July party we're having Sunday. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! It's a good thing everyone lives close and these can be hand delivered! At least this has got me in the mood to make some more cards. Maybe I'll have some more to share, but right now the pool is calling my name!

Birthday card for PTT challenge #1

I came across a new challenge blog this week. It's called Party Time Tuesdays and they post a challenge every Tuesday for a birthday card. That's just what I need to get my supply up! The first challenge was an anything goes challenge - the only requirement is it needs to have a birthday sentiment on the card. I used paper from The Paper Studio, cardstock from DCWV, a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and the border punch is from Fiskars. I am looking forward to the next challenge and can't wait to see how many cards I can get done! If you haven't visited their blog yet, you need to stop by!

Week 19/52 week challenge - Mother's Day

I am so glad that I'm just making up my own rules for this...who knows, by the end of the year maybe I'll have 52 layouts done...maybe I'll have ideas and pictures for 52 layouts!! At least I'm working on it. Oh well. This is the layout I made for week 19 of my 52 week challenge. I used my Mother's day pictures, a sketch from The Scrappiest, and the My Family collection of paper from Fancy Pants. The flowers on this was made thanks to Giselle over at Papermice. She had posted how to make them for a card and I fell in love with the way they looked and used them on this layout, too.
