It's Reveal Day

Kelly provided us with such an adorable stamped image this round.  It's Hug-a-Bull by Sweet Pea Designs.  What a cute stamp.  I made a 5 1/2" square card, the dotted background is from DCWV Lemon Flower and the red print is from DCWV Farmer's Market stacks.   Thank you Kelly for hosting.

My New Addiction

I found the line of Papertrey stitching dies last fall and I've been stitching away ever since.  But, this bicycle that just came out is my absolute favorite so far.  They are so easy to work with since the stitching holes are part of the die.  I just need to order some tan felt so my bicycle can have a woven basket.

Happy Birthday, Jon

After losing my brother to cancer at age 49 a few summers ago, I have tried to embrace getting older.  I was thrilled to celebrate my 2nd older brother' s birthday.  He's 3 years older than me, my oldest brother was 5 years older.  Anyway,  yesterday was his 51st birthday.   He's special needs and doesn't worry about getting older, it's the excitement of presents and cake,  getting cards from his coworkers, and just enjoying the day.  So I finally took the time yesterday am to make his card and this is what I did.  I wasn't there to see him open it. But I'm sure he took a minute or two to figure out how the sequins, bead, etc. Got in the middle of the card.  The die is from mft stamps.  A lot of fun to work with.   Now, we have 4 more family birthdays this week, so I better get busy on making some more cards to celebrate.

Mystery reveal time

Here's my card for Tracy's round.   I kept it pretty simple (a little short on time).  I fussy cut around the gumball machine and popped up the "Have a double bubble day!)  Thanks for such a fun image, Tracy.

Unidentified Reveal

Jeanette was our hostess this round and she chose this cool Halloween image from Starvingartist stamps.  It's a large sized image so I made a 5 1/2" square card.  The background paper is from Hobby Lobby, the burlap ribbon is from Target an the witch hat is from Martha Stewart.  Can't wait to see what the next round will bring.

The Lion King

Gael is our hostess this round for the Sisterhood.  She requested that we choose a Broadway musical and make our card relating to that theme.  I haven't been to see very many musicals (hubby is not a fan), but I realized that the Lion King would work.  I bought a set of Lion King stamps off ebay a few years back when I realized there was such a thing.  It's always been a favorite kid movie of mine.  It came out in the movies 2 weeks after my oldest daughter was born and was our first "date night" as new mom and dad.  (grandma gladly babysat and we didn't go for opening day).   I printed my background paper from an online image for the opening of the play in London (sure would like to go see it there).

Mystery revealed

Darlene was our hostess this round.  I used a different Happy Birthday stamp than was included so that I could make a flip card.
