The challenge this month was to
pick your favorite floral stamp set and have fun with different color combos and maybe try something a little bit
out of your normal creative comfort zone!
This is a small gift card. The flowers are from an Impression Obsession die, with a brad in the center of two of them and a rhinestone in the top flower. Vase is a die from PTI Mega Gracious Vases. The flowers are from PTI Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst card stock. Thank you stamp from PTI Ribbon Tails. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!
1. Do you wake before the alarm or stay in bed until the last possible second? I usually wake before the alarm and then lay there until the last possible nano second!
2. Who should get a baby shower? Is it just the first baby or all babies? I think all babies should have a shower! They are all special!
3. How will you spend Memorial Day? It is supposed to rain most of the weekend so I will probably be playing in my craft room! (Don't be a hater!) :)
4. Do you have a Storm/Hurricane/Tornado/Fire plan for your kids, house..? I have a couple of escape ladders in a closet somewhere... Not good I know. Maybe the hubs and I can work on that this weekend. Put together an emergency kit and put the ladders where they are needed. Thanks for the little push!
5. What is your favorite morning drink?
Starbucks baby! Venti Peppermint White Mocha, Not Fat, No Whip and Stirred. :)
Thanks for stopping by and to join in the fun, head on over to 5QF!
Pull up a chair and grab a cup of teas and lets have a chat!
1.Are you a heavy sleeper, light
sleeper, or somewhere in between?
I used to be a heavy sleeper until I had my son and then I became a light
sleeper. I had to actually move his crib
three rooms away because I would wake up with every noise he made!
2.Are you currently reading anything
I have two books on my nightstand waiting for me to read. Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy both by
3.Do you like to enter contests?
If it is easy to enter yes.
4.Are you good about taking time to do
things you enjoy?
5.What's your favorite food to cook on the grill, or enjoy at a BBQ?
Thanks for stopping by and please join us on the porch!
I'm at the beach this weekend and then again next weekend having the place appraised for the bank. Ugh! It wouldn't be so bad if the weather were supposed to be better and of course it gets better the day we leave... I hope to get some good pictures though in between showers. If I get any good ones I will share them next week.
This weeks Make It Monday challenge was to use Impression plates on something other than paper. In Heather's example she used foil tape and I loved the look, so I ran out and got some!
I like some things about this card but overall not so much... It's hard to see the impressions on the hammer and handles of the screwdrivers but they are there... I think I will try this again but I will do it on larger pieces for a background.
This is my first time joining the Cloud 9 blog hop, but after seeing the inspiration photo, I knew I wanted to give it a try!
I love the colors on this card. It is not a shape I have done before and I didn't think I liked making non-A2 cards but I think I might have to try another one like this it was a lot of fun to think about!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other lovely entries!
Change is my OLW for this year and while I have made some changes so far, I still need to make more. The people in my life are not going to like it but...I still need to do it. I keep putting it off like it will make a difference but it won't. My problem is now that I am finally ready to make changes there are too many options! Oy vey!
I don't remember when it started but for as long as I can remember I have given my mom flowers on May Day. This year will be no different. I started making these flowers a last month but never finished them. (Can you tell I am a procrastinator? Nah.) This all started while I was browsing Pinterest and seeing tons of beautiful paper flowers and was amazed that they were being made from coffee filters. So I found a tutorial I liked and started making them. Then stopped. Then started again. Then stopped... You get the picture. I did finally get them done!
I think theses are so pretty gathered together! There are five flowers here.
I stamped a tag and tied it to the bouquet.
I thought I would give her a little something that she can carry with her wherever she goes, to know that she is loved!
The heart is a pocket token from Lisa Leonard Designs. This is my third order in a little over a month! All of her items are handcrafted and simply stunning!
Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful May Day!
