Happy Bday Scott!

September is chocked full of birthdays for our family.  My BIL had his birthday last week.  Here’s the card I made him:

I found this PERFECT patterned paper at Hobby Lobby so of course I bought it thinking of him.  However, when I was trying to bring it all together it would not work for me.  I look at this card now and think “how could this simple card cause me so much grief…?”  Oh well.  I think it finally worked.  Thanks Pat for lending me your SU! Happy Trails (retired) stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by :-)

My Triplets Turned 4!!

7 Thoughts

Hello :-)

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  This is a much slower-paced weekend than last for us!  Our triplets turned 4 last weekend!!  I can’t believe they are growing up so fast!  We had a very busy, fun day full of birthdays!  I like to make their birthday special and individual for each of them.  I let each of them choose their “theme” and I made cakes and cards to match.  Carli chose Barbie/Princess, Haily loves Dora, and Drew wanted no other than Spiderman!  Here are some pictures of the cakes and cards.  THANKS Mom and Josie for helping me with everything!  You’re wonderful :-)

My kids LOVED their cards and cakes.  I was one busy lady trying to plan, bake, stamp, decorate, etc. to make everything special for their birthday.  I wanted this day to be great for them, and it was!  I would do it all again in a heartbeat!  It was a little challenging for me switching gears from Spiderman to Dora to Princess and back again, but it worked!  It really was fun.  I think the best part was watching the look on their faces when they first saw their cakes.  They were so excited.  My kiddos are AWESOME!  I have to tell you how proud I am of their big sister too.  It is a lot for her to watch her brother and sisters be the center of attention and her not feel left out.  She handled it so good.  She was a very caring, loving sister who didn’t show the least bit of jealousy.  She had her special jobs to do though.  One job was helping with the cakes, which was exciting made her feel very grown up.  Her time is coming…she turns six in two weeks!

About the cards…
The princess image is a Disney stamp.  I colored it with my blender pen and ink pads.  I couldn’t find Dora or Spiderman stamps, so I used rub-ons.  The rub-ons were awesome!  They are so easy to use.  For the sentiments, I made them using Word on my computer, printed them on cardstock, and punched them using word window punches.  All the images are on dimensionals, which is always hard to see in the picture.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Sunday :-)

Happy Thursday :-)

A few weeks ago I had a meeting for Lizzy’s Kindergarten.  My hubby stayed home with the kids while I went.  I left dinner on the table, planning to clean it up when I got home.  To my surprise Lizzy, my 5 year old, had everything cleaned up when I got back!  The kitchen was spotless!  Keep in mind that I have 4-year old triplets that she cleaned up after too.  What a sweetie!  I made this thank-you card for her.

I used my CB Hippie Chick Alphabet Dies to cut out the “LK”.  I cut both chipboard and cardstock with them.  This is the first time I had tried cutting chipboard with my CB and it worked beautifully!  I used my Nestabilities to cut out the scalloped circle card and DP.  This was such a fun, simple card to make.

Thanks for looking :-)

Hi :-)

I like to make cards for my kids’ first day of school.  This is the one I made for Lizzy’s first day of Kindergarten:

Lizzy 1st day of Kindergarten (Large)

I used The Paper Studio’s DP.  I love the oversized letters and dots.  The scalloped oval was cut using my Nestabilities and placed on dimensionals.  The flower is also on a dimensional.  Lizzy loved her card…she is really in to yellow and pink.  I still can’t believe she’s in Kindergarten!!

Enjoy your day!

Haily…Wonderful

Leave a comment

Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  Hopefully we will all adjust to our new routines with school starting.  My kids sure seem tired :-)

I have a few cards to share with you.  Today’s card is a very simple card I made for Haily.  I didn’t get a chance to make her a get well card when she was feeling her worst (she had her tonsils out), so I made her a card to tell her how wonderful and brave she has been during this process.  She loved it…especially the h for Haily and the purple of course :-)

Haily after tonsils (Large)

Haily is MUCH better now…actually better than before.  She was born with such large tonsils and adenoids that she snored and I’m sure it wasn’t easy to swallow big bites.  It’s amazing how fast kids heal!!  My hubby is having his tonsils out in December, along with some sinus work…we are already praying about that!!  Our doctor said it is MUCH harder on adults. YIKES :-)

Have a great day…I promise to be back soon with more cards to share 😉
