New cards and lovely flowers

I love making cards and projects with new supplies. I had a Stampin' Up! open house in early July. Here is a sample I made from some of the new colours and sets. This set is called Studio Sketches. I used our new Colour Chart to create this card. It showed me that Blushing Bride, Perfect Plum, and Sahara Sand make a great colour combination!!

For this card, I used the new set Artistic Etchings, as well as the Medallion and Perfect Punches! I had so much fun with our Smooch Spritz and the Newsprint paper. I love the result!!

Life is good, especially when hubby walks in with a vase of flowers. While we were away, there was a bad hailstorm in our neighborhood. Several of my flowers were knocked down. My sweet husband carefully cut them all and put them in a vase for me to enjoy!!

Aren't they just gorgeous! He is so thoughtful!

Take care, have a great day, and take time to enjoy the flowers!!

A New Teenager

I have a new teenager now! Jon- Jacob turned 13 on Sunday! He is so pleased to be in this new phase of his life! I am so proud of my young man!

When we went camping a few weeks ago, we had an extra passenger! Mojo is our newest family member! She is a three-year old Yorkie/Pom. We just love her to bits!!

Timmy's teacher got married in June, right before the end of school.   I had so much fun making a 'Build a Bear" wedding card for him and his new bride.  Inside, the card reads, "Getting married means Sharing your Toys!"  Isn't that too true!

Have a great day, and enjoy your summer!!
