April photo mosaic

We spent the day in Eugene at the Oregon Spring Football game!  It was a nice day and we actually came home with sunburns on our faces!   We haven't needed sunscreen since last summer and I didn't even think about it.  Oops!   Here is a pic of the kids and I.

And here is my April Mosaic 
Thanks for looking.  Hope your having a great weekened! (=

Happy Friday!!! (=

Flower jar holders

Here is a little project I did awhile back.  I've seen similar things around the blog world...  I used some wood I already had on hand and turned it into a cute little vase holder.  My girls love to pick me flowers and now I have the perfect place to put them!! (=
These would also make a great Mothers day gift!! Just add some pretty flowers!

The little bird is vinyl cut with my silhouette machine. TFL! (=

Motherhood is a journey...

With Mothers Day coming up I ordered this great set of Mothers Day sentiments from Flourishes called Motherly Love.  I combined an image and sentiment from two different sets.  Here is one of the cards I did.
The DP is from Crate Paper.  I added some seam binding and punched out some MS butterflies.

Dropping you a line

I just got a couple new stamp sets from Flourishes.  This card is made with the set Kids At Play.  I just love the great images and sentiments with this set.  Can't wait to ink up more of it. (= 
Masculine cards are harder for me, but this is just very clean and simple.  I just love this sweet image.  The DP is from Basic Grey and I finished it off with a button and twine. 

Here is another one of my Spring signs!! Hope your seeing signs of Spring.  I think we are actually warming up a bit around here today!! (=  Happy Friday!!

you're sew lovely

Here are some cute little spools I decorated.  I die cut some felt flowers and attached them with some wire.  I stamped the sentiment "you're sew lovely" from a Lawn Fawn set and slid that into the wire.  Cute and simple!! (=
Added a little fabric butterfly to this one.

Papertrey Ink dies were used for the flowers.

Thanks for looking!

Be Stong and take heart...

Here is a card I was playing around with.  I haven't really done any blending techniques on my cards, but I saw a tutorial recently and thought I would try.  I didn't really like how it was turning out at first.  It seemed like there were lines that didn't blend well.  I'm not sure what I was going for but I do think it turned out O.K.
The sentiment is from Unity and I pulled out another old stamp set from SU for the branch and bird.

This is a picture of my daughter at her first piano recital over the weekened.  She didn't really play any songs.  She did play a few notes and sing a couple cute songs!! She is definitely my musical entertainer!

And finally the rest of my weekened was working on signs...

Clean and Simple

I have a couple very clean and simple cards today.  I've had these stamps for some time now.  It's fun to pull out those old stamps from time to time!!  I need to do this more often.  Both stamps are from Penny Black.  Sentiments are both from Papertrey Ink.

Sisters - this moment

WOW!  It's been a really long time since I've done any scrapbooking.  I finally sat down and pulled out a picture of my girls!  Here's what I came up with! (=
I haven't done any layouts using my silhouette until now.  I cut out all the fonts and the cute camera image with the silhouette.

From one chick to another

Here is a card I made using a Pure Innocence digi image!  I thought it was a really sweet image.  I can't believe how long it's been since I've played with one of the PI cuties!! (=  I haven't really done many round/scallop cards, but I've seen so many cute ones I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit! (=
The sentiment is from A Muse (from one chick to another).
Have a GREAT day!! (=

By LORi Designs PJ cole

I had a super busy weekened and a little one sick, but she's feeling a bit better today.  I also had to take in my items for the spring bazaar today.  I've had a lot of time to get ready, but for some reason I still had a lot to finish up. 
I have a card to share with you from By LORi Designs.  This is a cute little Puddle Jumper image named Cole.  Very cute with his little skate board! (=   You can check out more of LORi's cute images HERE.
