Mother's Day cards

Here are a couple of mother's day cards I made.  One for my daughter and one for niece who celebrated her 1st mother's day as a mother.

Merry Birthday?

My sister didn't get a Christmas present from me this year because she couldn't think of anything she really wanted and she didn't want me to just go out and buy something just to buy something.  So, I told her if she thought of anything later she could let me know - so all this time she's had a Christmas gift coming to her sometime in the future. 

Well, her birthday is coming up in June and here I am with still nothing to give her!  Then the other day her washing machine broke and she had to go buy a new washer.  I thought contributing to the cost of a new washer might help and could be a combination Christmas/birthday present!  She was thrilled with the idea.

I wanted to make her a card - not just hand her a check!  Well it so happens that this particular sister is one of the artists who drew lots of images for Squigglefly.  One of the images she drew was just perfect.  I made up the sentiment to go with the "Merry Birthday" theme.

Speedy Recovery - speedy card

My boss's daughter broke her arm playing soccer over the weekend, so I made her this card.  She really liked it.  It was super quick to make with the cute Bandaid dies.

double trouble

I got a new die this week and couldn't wait to use it.  It's a beautiful die, but it's a LOT of trouble to use if you are going to do the inlay technique!  It was a labor of love though because these two cards are for my two daughters who have birthdays three days apart.

I cut two from the black and then two from the red and yellow and then mixed and matched the pieces for the inlay.  Some of the leaves were just colored with copic markers and some with wink of stella for a little sparkle.  I love the overall look, but it was way time consuming to make!

Here are close ups of the two cards.

Simple Birthday Wish

A simple birthday card using a cute image.  I did a little debossing of the image on the backside to give it a little dimension.

Here's a card I made for a friend who is going through a hard time right now.  I hope it makes her smile.

Not your mama's fish sticks!

I recently received a coupon to try a new product at Kroger's - Dr. Praeger's seafood products.  I chose the Buffalo Fish Bites.  These are little nuggets of wholesome deliciousness!  I really like the fact that I can pronounce every single ingredient in them, and they are packed with protein and really low in calories. 

My husband enjoys them as much as I do.  Now I want to try some of the other varieties.
