I never imagined my life the way it is now...full of love, 2 beautiful children & the ability to stay home with them while I work on things that I enjoy! He has made my dreams come true in soo many ways.

Here is the card I gave him today, enjoy!

Lemonade, Anyone? Tuesday Tutorial!

Spring is coming & summer will be here before we know it!
Are you ready for that sweet summertime lemonade?!?
I know I am!
In the mean time, I had to share this tutorial for a great way to make 8 great cards to welcome summer! Send these to your 8 best friends & keep in touch during the summer when everyone gets busy!! 
First, take a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 Whisper White Cardstock & stamp with one of your favorite stamps all over it! I choose the lemon stamp from the Sale-a-bration promotion that is going on until March 31st. (You can get the set that this lemon is in for FREE when you purchase $50* in other products! Ask me if you need more information. Supply list is at the bottom.)
Then I colored my lemons with the Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Blendabilities Markers!
(These markers were discontinued today due to quality issues, however I can show you some alternate ways to color your lemons...or any other image you desire!)
 Now that our Blendabilities Markers are no longer availaibe, I will be holding a class to show you a few coloring techniques you can do with our other great products! If you want to get into this class before it's full, RSVP now!
Here's what my fully colored sheet of lemons looked like!  
Cut your 8 1/2 x 11 paper in half. You will have 2 sheets that are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. 
Cut those 2 sheets in half, making 4 sheets that are 4 1/2 x 5 1/2. 
Cut those 4 sheets in half to make 8 pieces that are 2 3/4 x 4 1/2. 
Here are my 8 pieces!

Decide on a layout...I matted my lemons on a piece of 3 x 4 3/4 Rich Razzleberry Cardstock with a 2 x 4 1/4 strip of Old Olive Cardstock punched with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch behind it. Wrap some Daffodil Delight Seam Binding around & tie it in a knot through the hole...& pop up on Stampin' Dimensionals! The card base is Coastal Cabana Cardstock stamped with the 'love life' greeting from the same stamp set.
I added 3 Rhinestones in the corner & then decided to make them even better & colored them with the Old Olive Blendabilites Markers!!!
(Have a told you how much I LOVED MY BLENDABILITIES?!? Out of all of my packs, I only had 1 bad marker...& I have every color. But I do understand & appreciate Stampin' Up! making the 'hard choice' to discontinue this product line & look for a more reliable source for a similar product in the future!)
I certainly hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you did, please leave me a comment. If you didn't, please also comment & let me know what I could do better!! ;)
If you have any questions about this project, just ask!!!
Thanks for stopping by & you can see all the supplies used in the list below.

Lego Birthday!

I have recently been invited to more & more events now that my kids & I are starting to get involved in a few things! I'm thankful for this because I was beginning to think I was destined to be lonely at home with them every day...

The last event we were invited to was a birthday party for a 2 year old boy. What better set than Boys Will Be Boys to make him the perfect card & a set of Thank You cards for his mom to send out on his behalf!?! I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) the b-day card, making only minor adjustments, but designed the coordinating Thank You cards myself!

Product List is at the bottom! 
 I LOVE the way these turned out & I will be offering a limited number of these sets for sale in my Etsy store soon! The sets have 1 Happy Birthday card & 10 Thank you cards with coordinating stamped envelopes. Send me a message through Etsy if you need more than 10 in your set & we will work it out! Order yours NOW so you don't miss out!
Thank you for stopping by! Please leave me a comment if you loved these...or if there's something you would like to see on my blog in the future. I'm always looking for ideas & want to provide things that you want to see...don't hesitate to make suggestions!
I appreciate each of you! Thank you!
