It's hump day!

Happy Hump Day everyone! My goodness, Wednesday already. Where does the time go? Mom was right, the older you get the faster time goes by...

Yes, I'm still working on my scrap book. I'm almost done for now. I've got to go to the store and print out more pictures. I've not scrapped in probably almost a year now. I do want to get as much done as I can though. Even work on the family album a little more. But I still keep making cards. That's my true passion.

So you ready for a peek? Here we go!

I am in need of making birthday cards for my "stash" and this is what I came up with. I made a few of these, they can be for either a male or female.

I used the TAC set Sweet Thing. I just l♥ve cupcakes!! I stamped it and colored it in with my pencils and gamsol. The base card is Bashful Blue and I also used Pumpkin Pie and SU! Delicate Dots DP. I used my nesties to cut out the image that I sponged with Bashful Blue ink and the Pumpkin Pie layer that I paper peirced. I also cut out a circle of the DP and added some ribbon scrap then adhered it behind the image. I stamped the words Celebrate and birthday wishes with Pumpkin Pie ink. The inside I just took some of the scraps I had from making the card front and used my scallop punch to add another dimension. The stamp is one of my all time favorites from D.O.T.S. that I always end up using on birthday cards. Once the card was complete I used some dimensional glaze over the top of the cupcake to give it a little more texture.

The next card I made was a special card for my Mother for Mother's day. After all, I could not give her one of the other's I made. I had to make it special for her, besides, she had seen all the others *Ü*

I knew just the set that I wanted to use for her card. She likes the flowers and the soft chalks so I had to pull out my SU! Wreath of Roses set. The base card is Pink Pirouette that I layered with some butterfly cs that I purchased years ago from The Paper Palette at a show, Purely Pomegranate and some DP from CTMH.

I colored the rubber with my markers then stamped it on to white cs. I took my chalks and sponged some color just on to the flowers themselves then stamped the words Happy Mother's Day in the center of the wreath. I cut the image and the panel behind it out with my nesties and added that to the card front. After adding the DP to the card, but before adhering the panel down I added a length of ribbon to the card. For the inside I just took and stamped a rose in the corner and added the chalk to it.

You think she'll like it?? I hope so.

Well that's all I've got for you today. I hope that will hold ya??

Have a great day!
Hugs,

Joani
