LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS to share today!!!!!

Hi dee Neighbors!

We've had quite a bit happening around here lately. Of course, Father's Day but also my Parent's Anniversary and our son's birthday. He is 10 years old! Wow, where does the time go? He's almost as tall as me! Well, anyway, Toy Story is the big thing this birthday. He wanted everything Toy Story...oh yeah....He wanted Alvin and the Chipmunks (2nd one) also. When he got up Sunday (yeah, his birthday fell on Father's Day this year), He was greeted by his gifts on the table...



Notice his card? The one I made a couple weeks ago :) Sunday night we had family over for cake and ice cream. 10 candles....WOW!

This is the card I made for my husband for Father's Day. I used the new Crumb Cake textured card stock with the Medallion stamped in the corner (I stamped off once then onto the base. I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock with the top note die and stamped the Medallion again in Soft Suede ink. Then for the sentiment I used the For All You Do stamp set and then punched it out with the curly label punch. I inked the sentiment piece and the top note piece with Soft Suede ink. To finish it, I punched holes with my 1/16" hole punch and then run some linen thread through twice and knotted it.

This is the card I made for my Father in law. I used basic black, cherry cobbler and basic gray. I stamped the gray piece with Watercolor Trio and the same sentiment from For All You Do. I added some vintage brads and some doodling. :)

Next...

This is the card I made for my Parent's Anniversary. I used the new Friends Never Fade stamp set coming out in the new catalog and also the new Greenhouse Gala dsp. The sentiment is from Fundamental Phrases. I popped up Anniversary after I punched it out with the modern label punch and inked it with real red ink. I layered some real red satin ribbon and chocolate chip grosgrain then finished with vintage brads.

WHEW!!!!! I told you I had a lot to share with you!!! :)
Thanks for stopping by. It means a lot!

Until next time...
Blessings...
