Get Well Wishes!

Well, it finally stopped raining for a day here.  So glad it finally did.  Just a little break and maybe we will get to see a glimpse of the sun today too.  Sunshine is good for making things seem so much better, including the healing process from surgery.  You see my SIL just recently had a major surgery and is going to be laid up for quite a while and is in a lot of pain.  So naturally, a get well card was in order, one to make her smile.  Because you know the saying, "Laughter is the best medicine"!  So I knew I wanted to make something that would make her smile a bit.  So this is what I came up with.  Something so simple yet bright and cheery!  These little band aid people are sooo cute!  They kinda remind me, of little Minions!  They sure do make me smile!  I really hope they do that for her too!

I Used:
Band Aids from my medicine cabinet
Elegant Edges "negative" cut from a past card
Recollections Comic Heros Paper Pad for all the patterned papers
White/Yellow Cardstock 
Googley Eyes from my stash
Stickles for the tiny flower on the one band aid
Get Well sentiment stamp from Hobby Lobby
Ribbon from my stash 
Thank you so much for stopping in! 
I hope you have a great day!

Happy Mother's Day, for our Mom's

Okay, this is the final post for Mother's Day cards this year.  Each set of cards were all so different from each other and for totally different family members.  So these two were so different and yet sorta, kinda, complicated to make.  I was trying to make a book card with less folds to keep it more shallow but yet, get that layered look.  I don't know if I accomplished doing so or not, but I am very pleased how they both turned out and I think my Mom and my MIL enjoyed them too.   These two ladies have been such a blessing to our family and we are so blessed that God chose them to be our Mom's. So I wanted to give them that dimensional look yet not to deep. And again, these images were free printable from Pinterest.   Anyways, here is what I came up with.

I Used: 
Printable Images found on Pinterest
Purple, Pink and Blue Textured Cardstock
DCWV The Luxury Stack for the Pink Card BG
K & Company Life's Journey Designer Paper for the Pink and Blue card
Purple Velum Paper for the purple flowers
Adhesive pears and gems from my stash
Purple, Pink, green, yellow Stickles
Pink Dogwood flower sticker set from my stash
Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punches for the purple flowers
Ribbon and lace from my stash
Dimensional Dots from Michaels
Quotes and Scripture were computer generated in Word
Mother's Day Stamp from Hobby Lobby
Cuttlebug Embossing folder: D'Vine Swirl for the Dogwood card frame

Thanks for stopping in again and I hope you are inspired to create!  I hope you have a fantastic day too!

Happy Mother's Day, Sister in Law's!

I have two wonderful SIL, that I love and enjoy spending time with.  Each one has a special and unique quality that I love.  Anyways, they both are special to us all, and have been great moms to some wonderful kids.  As always, I try to make them a card too.  So this year, I used free printable images that I found on Pinterest, which has a wealth of choices to choose from.  Picking just a couple can be a bit of a challenge.  I knew the look I was wanting and I knew I wanted to do something with birds and their babies with a bit of a vintage/distressed look.  I think I may have accomplished that look.  I am very happy how they both turned out.  Pretty, yet simple ...

I used:
Printable images found Pinterest
Blue/Burnt Orange Cardstock
Craft Paper Cardstock for the actual cards and the BG "Crimped" scrap papers
Buttons from my button can
Sentiment Stamp from Hobby Lobby
Green Flowers from Hobby Lobby
Adhesive Pearls from Michael's
Burlap scraps
Bakers Twine: Brown and white
Vintage Lace from my stash
Vintage Seam Binding from my stash
Paper Crimper from Hobby Lobby for the brown BG craft paper

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a day filled with many blessings!

Happy Mother's Day, Sisters!

Well I hope you all had a great Mother's Day!  I know I did even though it was very busy!  My family spoiled me and took me to my favorite restaurant for my favorite steak!  MMMMM, was it ever good!  Anyway, these two cards were for my two wonderful sisters who live so far away.  I think they turned out so pretty yet so simple!  I LOVE the Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punches.  They are so pretty and versatile.  You have many choices and things that you can do with them.  Either way they both said that they really enjoyed getting them and thought that they were so beautiful.
