Cards from the weekend


blowing get well wishes cs

This weekend was a nice three day weekend. I had planned to participate in the Virtual Stamp gala over on Splitcoast, but alas….it wasn’t to be so. Friday night began with a party for our youngest. He turned 17 and invited 17 of his closest friends to celebrate. Saturday was cleaning and laundry, Sunday ran errands (and had dinner at Bahama Breeze) then today was yard work. I was determined to make my mom a get well card for her surgery tomorrow, so I looked at the various challenges and incorporated a couple for the card above. The first was Splish, Splash (use the colors blue, white and grey) and the second was Watermark (use versamark on your card). I was also able to throw in butterfly (ribbon from BSF thanks ;) and a heart so I can add Flutterby Wednesday and The Shabby Tea Room to the list.

My second card is the one I made our son for his birthday. I just bought this set from Stamp and Deliver and wanted to ink it up.



Yes we freely humiliate our children by making them wear birthday Mouse ears. The button was all him. He is listening to a fine rendition of Happy Birthday from his cousins in GA.

I hope you were able to enjoy the weekend. Did you know there is only 207 days til Christmas? Start your shopping early to avoid the rush!
