Sunshine! There is FINALLY sunshine!! Hooray!! I'm not even going to jinx myself by saying that winter is over...however, for now I will enjoy the nice, warm weather. And in honor of the sun, I made a card. Unity has a new sketch challenge where you have to use a kit of the month. I am not a kit of the month subscriber, but I do have a whole bunch from when I use to be (and also, the grab bag I won had a few from kits too!). So this stamp is from an old kit of the month, a pocket full of... (July 2009!), but it's still a good one.
I used Jillibean Soup twine and Blossom Soup paper, EK Success scallop punch, and nesties for this card.

Ribbon and Trims

Today I have a few cards that qualify for the Clear It Out challenge to use ribbon or trims on your projects. First, I needed a birthday card for a boy turning 10. Ten is about the age where a boy turns into almost a full panic mode when anything remotely girly is near them. You know how girls scream at snakes? That's how boys scream at ribbon. Okay, I'm generalizing a little bit -- but for the boy I made this card for, it's true. He does NOT like girly things. So I tried my very best to make a plain, no frills card for him. Instead of ribbon, I used some twine.
I also needed a sympathy card. So I made this card using some of my favorite May Arts ribbon.

Another Mother's Day....

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I have been working on getting some cards made. When I was growing up, my dad would always get his mom something. Whenever somebody would ask him what he got his wife (my mom), his response would be -- why would I get her something, she's not my mom? So to me, it also seemed normal that you just got something for your own mom. What I've learned is that my dad is the exception, not the rule. There are many people that send Mother's Day cards to everybody -- aunts, Grandma's, Godmothers, and so on. I know this because my husband is one of those people. :) So here is another Mother's Day card that I made. This one uses CPS Sketch #216.
Supplies Used: Blooming with Love (Stampin' Up), October Afternoon 5 & Dime patterned paper, Circle and rectangle Nestabilites, May Art ribbon
So, whether you celebrate just your mom or all the moms, I hope everybody has a great day...and I'm sure I'll be back to share another Mother's Day card soon!
