While we are away

I have a date with my husband on Friday night. We are going to The Cure's reunion show in the city and spending the weekend at home, alone, for some much needed R & R. My in-laws will have the boys from Friday until Monday. I made these little 3 x 3 cards for the boys to receive each morning that we are not with them. Just a little something, so they know we are thinking of them. And a little something for me not to feel AS guilty for leaving them.

I'm leaving tomorrow & probably won't post again until next week.

Have a great weekend!

Father's Day

This is a card I made for my husband for Father's Day. I used the stamp sets "Wanted" and "Wild about you". I don't have a Father's Day stamp, but I think the sentiment is fitting for the occasion anyway.
We are going to be spending the day at Bushkill Falls. Our area is surrounded by waterfalls, and Bushkill Falls is one we haven't explored yet. But first my Hubby has to mow the lawn, poor guy, really relaxing, right?!?

Have a great day!


I made this as part of a theme "tone-on-tone" for the card club I've only been able to attend once. At least I'm coming up with samples to play along!
It seems a little bit dark to me, like I need something else to make it POP!

And, this picture is awful. I don't know why it cam out so dark!!

What do you think?

Layout revisited

I've made this card before, just using different dsp and colors, I still love it.
It's super simple and can be used to make a card for ANYONE, just change up the colors a bit!! It's a great design to fall back on when your short on time.

Hope you like it!

A color challenge!

I decided to try the Splitcoast color challenge this week. And a challenge it was!!! This color scheme is sooooo outside my comfort zone. The challenge was to use so saffron, regal rose and real red. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. They only problem is that I don't know anyone that is expecting a baby, and I seem to be surrounded by boys. I guess I'll add this one to my stash.

Have a good one!!

Oh, baby!!

Has it really been this long since I posted? I am definitely slacking, although I have been stamping!! I made these cards for the newest addition to our family, Lucas Andrew, born to my cousin and his wife last week. The first card is for the new parents, the second is for the new Grandma!!
