Baby Bunny

Well I have never created a card for a new baby, maybe because I haven't had cause for one, and I still don't. The doctor that I worked for has just had their first grandchild and I did want to make a card for him and his wife. She used to work with me in the office, but has been gone for a couple of years and now is taking care of the baby while mom and dad work during the week. I have to say hat I am quite jealous only because I wish that my parents were closer than 2000 miles away. I know that Dale is enjoying having a baby girl to ote on and buy for.

Anyway, here is the card that I made, I figured I would make two one to have on hand if the need arises or to possibly put in my stash for when I start my Etsy shop.
I really do like how they came out all sparkely, feminine but not over the top. At least in my opinion. LOL

Flowers, flowers, love the flowers

I have to say that Beautiful Blooms II is becoming a fast favorite of mine. I have decided that I am going to make two set of cards with this stamp set, one I am going to keep and the other I am going to try and sell in an Etsy shop that I haven't set up yet. I have to make some money so I can buy more stamps!!!! LOL It's funny how you go through periods of time where you want to stamp and others you just can't seem to get it going. This past weekend all I wanted to to do was sit and stamp.
On to the card! All products are PTI unless otherwise noted.
Stamp: BB-Polka Dots, Beautiful Blooms II and sentiment is from Faux Ribbon

Let me know what you think! The picture isn't the best, but until I find my camera have to use my phone! UGH!!!

Sister In Law's B-day

On Saturday was my SIL Birthday. We celebrated last weekend since we were already up there visiting Mommie. I usually try to make the gifts that I give her but this year she just got a card with some cash in it so she could buy what she wanted herself!!!

I felt rushed in making this card (I always seem to wait till the 11th hour), but I love how I colored the flower with the Prisma Pencils!!! It's not the best light for it either.

Mommie's Mother's Day Card

I know it isn't the best picture, but I really do like the way this card came out. I used mostly PTI products (absolutely love PTI).

I had a hard time putting this together, but think it came out pretty well, and she seemed to like the card as too.

Mother's day is one of those holidays I really enjoy. I love the fact that my family takes me out for lunch/dinner (but we usually try to do this on Sat. instead of Sunday, the crowds are just too much) and we usually see my MIL and my SIL and treat them as well. This year my darling man bought all of us ladies wrist corsages (how old fashioned), loved it!!! Then after lunch we took my MIL home and sat outside in the gazebo just chatting. It was a lovely day. Now onto the details of the card.
