Lots of Birthdays

Hi - I have been slacking big time in posting, sorry about that. Our kids are still in school so we are doing lots of end of the year stuff. Sara is in softball everyday and Ben has his first sand volleyball game tonight too. I'm excited about those things.

We also have lots of birthdays in April and May. Ben's was just a couple days ago and this is the card I made for him :) I LOVE House-Mouse stamps, that includes the Happy Hoppers and Gruffies too :) They are just SO CUTE!!

I also used some Blue Skies Glimmer Mist on this one. I really like this stuff and can't wait to play with it some more.

Stamps: Hammock Hibernation -Stampabilities, sentiment - Stampendous
Ink: Glimmer Mist - Blue Skies, Versafine Onyx black, prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits
Paper: Making Memories, Bazzill
Other: Pixee Stix glitter - chocolate

This one is for our grandson, Tyler. He is turning 3 :) His older brother, Case, plays baseball, so Tyler also loves baseball. I was thinking about whether I like to make cards just because, or if I would rather have a specific card I need to make. I've decided that I'm glad I get to do both! How's that for being indecisive??? :)

Great Catch - Stampabilities, AmyR Stamps - Birthday Sentiments - CC Designs
Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black, SU bliss blue (sponging) VersaMagic - Sahara Sand (sponging) , chalk ink - warm red
Paper: Basic Grey, plain cardstock, baseball - unknown
Other: EK Success punch, circle cutter

This card is for Case. When one child has a birthday, the siblings get a little something as well. It's my Mom's fault :) I love this Making Memories paper. I love the colors, the stars, they way the metallic stars shine. It's just fun!

Supplies :
Stamps: Riley - Hanna Stamps, Hero Arts - sentiment
Versafine Onyx black, SU Bliss Blue, Glorious Green (sponging) Paper Salon - Pear (sponging
Paper: Making Memories, plain cardstock, Bazzill
Nesties - Labels Two, May Arts ribbon, Inkssentials white pen

Our quote for the day: "As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can: by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we've been given." - Mary Lou Retton

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
