Baby Shower

Happy Sunday everyone!!! I'm on my way out the door for a baby shower and I just wanted to share the card I made. I don't have any baby stamps from my Stampin' Up stash yet so I threw together a combination of Pink By Design and Scrappy Moms stamps. I was having a hard time with design of the card, so I grabbed one of my magazines and CASED this. I used Stampin' Up cardstock and ink, Recollection cardstock, some K and Company patterned paper, and some dollar bin ribbon from M's. The adhesive gems are from M's too. This is a short post since I'm getting ready to leave, but as always, thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Good morning everyone! Just a quick post in remembrance of my dad who would have been 83 today. It's hard to believe he's been gone almost 4 years now. They say the heart heals in time, but some days I'm not so sure. Anyway, I wanted to share a layout I made of him and my mom. I was going through some old pictures of them and just had to create something. This picture was taken in 1969 when my dad was president of the Canoga Park Rotary Club. I remember they had a lot of fun with many friends back then and always going out.
I used all kinds of stuff from my stash on this, 3 Birds paper and doily border sticker, Doily stamp, punches, and ink from Stampin' Up, Recollection flowers and cardstock, a doily from M's, Perfect Pearls Mist, Stickles, White Gelly Roll pen, MS butterfly stamps....oh and a stick pin from Making Memories. Phew! What a list!! :) Any way, I hope you like it and I want to thank you for stopping by. Happy Birthday Daddy!! I love you!!

Oh no, not 40!

Hi everyone! Sorry to be MIA for so long. Both DH and I have been sick and it just wouldn't go away. I think I was sick most of March, yuck! I was beginning to think maybe we needed to invest in Kleenex, Nyquil, and Campbell's soup since we went through so much of the stuff! lol We're finally back with the living, thank goodness. Hope everyone had a good Easter too, ours was pretty quiet. So I thought I'd share a card for my SIL who turned 40 a few weeks ago. You can't have a milestone birthday without a buzzard, right? So I pulled out my Life's a Party cartridge and a couple of MS punches, some stamps from M's, a couple of scraps and voila! It took me about 2 hours to put this together, probably from a bac over the limit due to Nyquil!! ha ha Trying to put that bird together was hysterical, but I was determined to get it done even if it killed me!!! He liked it and that was all that mattered to me. I want to thank everyone who stopped by while I was away, I ALWAYS love to hear from you! And trust me, even though I've haven't been posting, I have been lurking and enjoying all your creations! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a nice evening!
