May Your Day be Filled with Joy

Hello from hot Kentucky! It's a mess of heat and humidity here and I'm sure that it's the same for many of you! I can't believe the last time I posted it was June!!! But the summer has been very very busy and I've done next to NOTHING when it comes to papercrafting. This summer is busier than most because we took a vacation back to WA, busy with our garden, chasing after my two monkeys and then I've increased my presence in the homeschooling blogging world via my other blog so I've been dedicating a lot of my blogging time over there. 

But I do have a card to share today. This is a very earthy card I made for a friend. I just like the way the naturals hues look on it!

Well have a simply wonderful weekend! I PROMISE to try to post once a week from here on out, just so you know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth---or more likely, MELTED! LOL!

Mother's Day

Hey all! Long time, no see huh? But if you were like me, you were frantically trying to create handmade Mother's Day cards for your relatives and friends! I've been busy doing just I just wanted to post photos of the designs I went with this year. You will see one design took dominance...but it was because I loved it and it was SOOOOOO easy to replicate!

So here goes...
Simple design using some pretty daisies...

 Love this paper, so decided to let it shine with a simple sentiment...

I saw THIS design over on Pinterest and it inspired me to make my own version...

Here are the cards in the design I fell in love with...I was inspired by THIS card of which I've CASE'd before.
Isn't it lovely? I decided to keep it all coordinating...this one is done in Enchanted Evening (PapertreyInk).

Here is the same card--but done in Rich Razzleberry (Stampin Up).

The next two version are dual-toned and I like the way they turned out too...
 This was a fun combo--Bermuda Bay (SU) and Pure Poppy (PTI) was for my grandma.

For my mom I went with Bermuda Bay and Elegant Eggplant (SU). 

I used this same design for my mother-in-laws card too, combining Enchanted Evening with the Pure Poppy and it looked just as lovely---but I was in a rush and I didn't get a chance to take the photo of it.

I must say that I'm rather glad I don't have anymore to make---I need to move on to Father's Day now! Ha!

Challenge List:
(the bottom card--Bermuda Bay/Eggplant)

(Entering cards #3, 5, 6, 7)
It would only let me do one photo since they are all in the same post/link
