Happy Friday the 13th!

Just because the rumor's out it's an unlucky day doesn't mean it's fact!

Make someone feel lucky today and send them a handmade card. This is another super easy card using Grace. (It's the same pattern as in the last post, but this is the full color front of the B&T!) Add a simple tag from Salutations Seals and you're good to go! This card took 5 minutes to make from start to finish but it's going to put a BIG smile on my pal's face!

Warm wishes,

Simple Scalloped Flower Card and Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Brandon's parents are celebrating their 38th wedding anniversary this week. Isn't that fabulous? It seems like such a far away place from my vantage point of a modest 11 1/2 years. I can't wait to get there, though!

Grace seemed like a great kit to celebrate this milestone with. One awesome thing about Close To My Heart's B&T pattern papers is they have a monochromatic pattern on the back of the paper so it's like getting 12 B&T's in your level 2 kits! This pattern is quite bold on the full color side, but a beautiful and serene Bamboo on the back. Just right to highlight this simple scallop flower.

Using our 2" Scallop Circle Punch, make 4 twilight cardstock circles. Lightly spray My Spritz Cleaner and crumple them up. Let them set a bit to dry. Then stack them and attach with a brad. That's it! Instant Awesomeness and a card that works for any occasion!

Don't forget the fabulous deal this month for National Scrapbooking Day now through May 31st. You can get your very own consultant kit for only $64.95. With that you can get two options including a Studio J 12 month membership, Mayberry or Lucky deluxe paper and stamp bundle, scrapbook albums or stamps and a My Acrylix Holder all for FREE!

Scalloped Flower Card

Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day and spent it with people you love. I had to work yesterday morning, but when I got home, I had two eager kids bearing gifts! They could hardly wait until I got in the door! Both Brook and Aidan had made gifts at school and decorated their own cards and artwork to give. Garrett, he was just happy to see "Mama!"

Brandon cooked me lasagna and we visited my Mom, where Dad treated us to strawberry cheesecake - my favorite! All in all, pretty great day. I didn't quite get the nap, but I didn't have to cook, dang it!

Here's another inspiration from Jeanette's blog. The pattern is from Wishes card confidence program and features papers from Dream Big. I random stamped the white daisy cardstock in Lilac Mist with a small snowflake swirly from my favorite snowman set to coordinate with the swirl pattern on the flowers. The large flower is made from 4 2" scallop circle punches. The petals are hand-cut. On the small flower, I used 2 scallop punches but trimmed the size down with scallop edged scissors and then added petals. The cute flower brads are from our White Daisy Mini Medley collection which is currently 33% off on my website and only $4 while supplies last!

Happy Mother's Day Ladies!

Hey girls! Hope all of Moms are having a good day despite the crummy weather! I'm looking forward to lasagna cooked by my family for me and a strawberry cheesecake with my own Mom! Speaking of Mom, here is the card I made for her. It was inspired by Jeanette Lynton's blog. You can check it out here. She posts wonderful, creative projects weekly!

This card pattern is from Wishes and features the Miracle papers. I used A Tweet for the flowers. The 3 larger flowers are second generation then rock n rolled in Hollyhock. The small flowers are second generation in Hollyhock. The stems come from the cute photo corner swirls in Take A Picture. A Little Everything provides the phrase. Wrap it all up with some cocoa grosgrain and it's pretty as a picture!
