Mother's Day Card


I made this card for my mom for Mother's Day. I love this set of pattern paper. I bought it from Create for Less.  I love buying from there because the paper comes in packs of 25. It's great for when you find a pattern you really like.

Graduation Card


My nephew is graduating today on Mother's Day.  
About 16 1/2 years ago my brother in law and sister in law adopted this adorable, happy child.  
It has been a joy watching him grow up.  He can always make me laugh, even when I don't want to.....make that especially when I shouldn't laugh.  He used to get me in trouble in church because we were always giggling. 
 I love this kid!

I kept the card simple but did add some diecuts to give it interest.
Congratulations Bryan!!

May Flowers



April Showers bring May flowers!  I don't know about you but I am ready for some sunny days so my flowers can grow.  We have had enough rain here in Missouri.  In fact, much of the state is flooded.  At least where we live we aren't effected by the flooding rivers and lakes.
This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments.  The theme for this challenge is to use flowers. I love this set of papers and they go perfectly with the theme.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. Isn't she cute?
Here is the inside of the card below. I fussy cut a flower from the pattern paper and added some stickles to embellish the inside of the card.

Butterfly Scrapbook Layout


The new challenge at Addicted To Stamps is to create a project using Butterflies and Flowers. 
I am hoping the spring rains end soon so we can enjoy the flowers.
For my DT project I made this scrapbook page. This will go in the album for one of my daycare kids who will be going to kindergarten in the fall.  I always like to give each child a scrapbook of their time at my daycare when the "graduate" to kindergarten.
I chose to keep the embellishments flat since it it going into a scrapbook. I found scrapbook paper with butterflies and with flowers that matched.  The stamp is from Magnolia Stamps.
