Where were YOU 10 years ago??

10 Years ago, our lives were totally and irreversibly turned upside-down. He has brought so much love and light into our lives... we have been blessed beyond measure.
He's growing into such a strong, honest and loving individual. He is smart and funny and knows exactly what he wants to do when he "grows up." He is a picky eater- has ALWAYS hated noodles and red meat. He loves his momma.
Happy 10th birthday Dawson Boyd!

Last Minute Sub!

Sorry folks! I have to change cards mid-stream....not something I like to do. I went to buy the paper for class and not only was the store out of the floral pattern but the matching cardstock as well! I found this pretty peach and red paper that looked like a summer sunset, so I made the switch. And the flower is still snail-mail flat!
Hope to see you tomorrow!

Birthdays...2 more!

I made two more cards...the red in the polka-dot card is looking a bit more pink than it really is. It is actually a very clean lined, masculine card. What do all three cards have in common (besides being birthday cards)?? They are all flat (or practically) and easy to mail for all you snail-mailers out there!
If you want to see the first on this link.
Tuesday, June 28th. $10 for one kit, color instructions ready to be assembled by YOU!

A pretty lil' card

Hope you had a fantastic weekend and father's day. While the weather didn't cooperate around here, since I was "forced" to stay inside and craft, I was able to get a few father's day cards made and two birthday of which I made just for the next class:

the paper is a plain white paper with this floral border. I embossed the sentiment with copper embossing powder...something I don't do too often, but lots of fun. It's too messy to do in class (wish I had a studio for my classes!) so I'll make the labels for you, ready to be added to your card front.

Still waiting for summer to arrive...anything over 70 would be well-received. And no rain.

June Mash-up

I have a hectic June. I'm sure that many of you have a t least one month where it seems everything is happening in that month...and for me it is June.

5 Birthdays, Father's Day, school ending (teacher gifts) and the beginning of summer break!

I know it's coming, but it sneaks up on me every year! Can you believe it??! It's June! How many of you feel like your internal clock is set to April or early May? Ok, put your hands down, I can't see you...but I bet that's how you're feeling!

So my June is filled and I need to get cards done, so I sorta mash those needs together and make my cards for my classes around my celebrations. Believe it or not, I don't usually do this since the cards I make others are done with the scraps from my classes. I like to use up all my extras.
The mash up class is a mix of the thank-yous I wrote for my birthday:

The Father's day card I am planning for my dad: which by-the-way can be changed to a "friend" card

and the 3rd card:

You might recognize this paper...I've used the green before. I really like it!

Hope you're getting sunshine in your neck-of-the-woods!
