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! (=
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! (=
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.
Who doesn't love Girl Scout Samoa cookies? They are my FAV!!! When I saw this recipe here http://kim-toomuchtimeonmyhands.blogspot.com/search/label/recipes I knew I had to make them! (= They were a little more work then I usually spend on cookies, but they were so worth it! YUMMY!!! (=
Mine wern't quite so pretty, but they tasted awesome and that's what counts! (=
and here is one of my most popular signs at the moment!
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!! (=
I had to whip together a quick birthday card. These cute images from By LORi designs are just perfect and my girls love them. They also love sitting and coloring them with me!! (= The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and I just love the font!
Here are a couple of Easter shelf sitters I recently made!
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...
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.
We are doing a blog hop this week at By LORi Designs. I can't wait to see all of the new cute images! I'm working with Puddle Jumper Quinn. Leave a comment on each blog on the hop and you'll be entered to win a $10.00 Gift card to the By LORi Designs shop!!
I also made a cute little tag:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy some more great inspiration! Your next stop will be the very talented Joni.
Check out these cool wood photo displays! I saw these on the Shanty2chic blog. If you haven't been by there before it's a great blog with tons of GREAT inspiration!!! Loved making these and they look great! Add a favorite photo, use as a recipe holder or just post notes!!!
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).
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.
Happy Friday!! (= I had a fun day of shopping yesterday, but I was so tired last night! A friend took me to the coolest Antique mall!! Lots of fun finds!!!
I put together a fun little card using a sentiment from Paper Smooches:
March flew by so fast I had forgotten all about my photo mosaic, but I quickly put it together with some fun pictures from the month.
