Sunday Fun

The stampin' mojo comes and goes. This morning it came. :) Mom and Dad are away in Kelowna(see wedding card in previous post), so Bailey and I are maintaining the silent house together. It's awesome. But that awesome little white dog would rather we be out walking, car riding, or playing in the backyard, than stamping. However, he allowed me an hour to be creative and pay my taxes :P before we head out on a car ride to pick up the supplies we ordered this month and a trip to the bank and possibly the park. You should see the irritatedly bored look he keeps giving me!

Anyways, here's what I got to do. A birthday card for my aunt. Cool, huh? Cher taught us how to make the card a couple of weeks ago at stamp club and this one is similar to the one she showed us.... what can i say, I love ya Cher!!! :D the funny this is that I argued and argued with my self and this stamp set. I finally bought it at Christmas, merry Christmas to me and use it lots!
Card #2 is for my mom for mother's day. I decided this week that I needed some accessories, so I headed to my local Wal-Mart and found these cute little flowers :) I am VERY sad that perfect and pale plum are leaving us (stamp ink colors that are being retired) and am unsure of how I will cope.... :( Anyways, happy Mother's day Mom... I'm on top of things -- that's what happens when you plan the events in a PCH. You HAVE to be a few months ahead.

I hope you enjoyed my art. Until the next time....

New, cool stamping supplies = new, cool cards!

Oh yes, I'm back with a vengence and with lots of stamping that needs to be done for different occasions coming up. This first one is for Janelle. It's her last day at CCC on Wednesday and she's moving to Brandon this weekend, because she got a job at the hospital. Way to go Janelley! It says inside: If nothing ever changed, there wouldn't be butterflies. Janelley is going to have lots of changes over the next little while and I wish her all the best!
Next card is for Dylan's Birthday. Not very difficult but cool for a 16! year old. Eeek! That makes me old!
One of the girls at work made me some Empanadas. Haven't eaten them yet, but a thank you card is very important!

This is an emergency card when someone says to me - "It's my birthday today". Oh look, I have a card for you. If not, I'll give to my other nephew Tyler for his bday! The monkeys remind me of him somehow.......

Way cool card! I saw this on Split Coast stampers while looking for ideas to use the stamp set "Tart and Tangy". I had yet to use it. My sister used to absolutely LOVE Pac Man and Miss Pac Man! She will LOVE her birthday card, which is in a couple of weeks!

And last but not least is a card for Laurie and Mike, friends of the family who are getting married at the end of the month. I can't go due to work and Bailey, so I thought I'd make a cute card to send with my parents! I rolled my eyes the first time I saw "Tiny Tags" but it is a way cute set and adds just a perfect touch to this card!

All right, that's all I got for now, but check back soon, because I'm thinking there will be more! :)
