Jess & Neal asked me to take some possible engagement photos.  We're going to take lots over several different weekends in different locations.  Here's one of my favorites from yesterday.  They climbed into the magnolia tree in our front yard.  I like the soft coloring and the gnarled branches with the pink blossoms in the background.

Art Impressions Mother's Day Card

Third post today, and it's not even 10 a.m.!  The bathing beauty on this card is a stamp from Art Impressions, which I colored with my copic sketch markers.  The water is made from a CTMH stampset, Adorning Corners.

Piece of Cake Birthday Card

The main colors are CTMH's blush, juniper, and sky.  The cake is from CTMH's Piece of Cake stamp set, and the sentiment is from Fringed Phrases.  The background blush cs is stamped tone-on-tone with a stamp from CTMH's Friendship set.

Sensational Season Mother's Day Card

The Beatrix-Potter-like bunnies on this card are from CTMH's March stamp of the month, Sensational Seasons, which is actually an Easter set, but I thought the mother and baby bunny looked like mother's day too.  The B&T paper is from CTMH's Sophia paper pack.

"She packed up her potential . . ." Graduation Card

I made this card for a friend who needed a graduation card for a woman who is graduating from med school and then heading to Africa.  I thought it worked for someone who is traveling and also wants to change the world.

The sentiment reads:  "She packed up her potential and all that she had learned, grabbed a cute pair of shoes, and headed out to change a few things."

The luggage is from SU, the graduation cap (Class of stamp set), bottom right flourish (Live Inspired stamp set), and shoe (Find Your Style stamp set) are from CTMH.  The upper right flowers are from Tim Holtz.  I found the sentiment on line and printed on cs.  Colors are CTMH's pansy purple and outdoor denim.

The inside is made with the Express Postage stamp set from CTMH.

Explosion Boxes

Last weekend three friends from high school and I roadtripped to a girls' getaway weekend in Galena, Illinois.  I love this "Girlfriends" stamp and used it to to top off explosion boxes I made for each of us.
The weekend before we went, I made the four explosion boxes, which were the same except the color combos.  I added cute stamps and sayings representing a girls' getaway and left spaces blank for pictures.
I took my camera and my mini printer with us to Galena, and in the morning before we drove home I added pictures from the trip and gave one to everyone:
