Have a fabulous day

Today I have a card that I made over the weekend.  I have been itching to use the signature series Dress form with the Cosmo Cricket paper I have in my stash. I finally was able to sit down and do it.  And of course the card need a bit of sewing on it.

Here is a close up of the details.

Can you guess how many?

Can you guess how many tags I made over the weekend? Let me tell you, it was 75, seventy freaking five.  I counted twice to make sure. I was asked to make 75 tags for a graduation party.  At first I was a little worried (okay alot worried) about making 75 tags.  I mean, I do like to mass produce but let's just say I do a limited edition run, of 20 or so. So when coming up with a design I wanted to make them as simple as possible (read one layer). 

Graduation Tag
STAMPS: PTI For the Graduate, PTI Mat Stack 1
OTHER: Ribbon Unknown

This is what I ended up with.  It took about three and a half hours to do all the cutting, stamping, and tying the ribbon on each one. I only had one tag that ended up in the trash due to dropping the freshly inked stamp on it.  So I was very happy about that. I think they turned out nice. I hope she likes them.

Happy Mother's day

I didn't finish up my Mother's day cards til yesterday. Since I have to mail them and there was no way they would make it on time I thought I will show them to our mom's on the blog and they will show up in the mail later this week. So here they are.

I had to try to keep the cards as flat as possible, which was kind of hard.  The first card I showed Mr. Sunny he thought the card didn't "pop enough" (his words) so I had to go back to the drawing board.  I think adding sewing on the card really helped to make it "pop".

Here is a close up of some of the details.

Thanks Coach

So Z's last soccer game of the spring season was last weekend and the team party is schedule for today.  I volunteered to make a Thank you card for the coach.  So I stayed up the night before the party whipping one up. At least it wasn't the hour before the party like last season. And I have decided I really need to invest in Papertrey Ink's All Star Team Additions stamp set to expand the possibilities before the next soccer season. 

Here is a look at the inside.

This season we ended up with purple jerseys, so when you are in Cowtown with purple for your team color, it's a given your team name will be the Horn Frogs. We had a great season, winning all but two games and the kids have a ton of fun.  Go Frogs!
