Good Afternoon everyone! I can't believe it is winter and we are getting 60 Degree weather. Not that I am complaining but the darn plants are gonna get confused and start growing. Just came in from a nice little play day outside with the girls. This weather was to nice to pass up. But I wanted to come in and share my latest card that I made with my files from SVG ATTIC and stamps from PEACHY KEEN STAMPS.
There is a new challenge over at both blogs so I decided to make it so it would fit both challenges. First at SVGATTIC the challenge is to use a heart on your project. Which I did in the little birdies hand as well as on the bird house. There was a photo inspiration at PKS. It was so pretty that I wish that was in my yard. Looking at it I took the colors as well as the nature/flower theme and made the card around that.
For the card I welded some shapes together on my MTC program from SVG Attic's Yours Truly set. The adorable bird and birdhouse are from the Birds and Bees set. I added a branch from the Give a Hoot set so the birdie had some place to sit. My sister just bought her first house so I made this with her in mind. I included a gift card inside with some Congratulations. The sentiment inside the heart is from PKS's PK-636 Pumpkin House accessories stamp set. For the adorable "I just want to Pinch you" face stamp I used PKK-144 Winter Faces. The papers I used are from Basic Grey, October Afternoon as well as some various scraps I had laying around.
I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Simon Says - Animal Antics
Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes
SweetStamps - Shaped card
Marks Finest Papers - have at least 4 layers
- Lisa B
- Carlisle, Pennsylvania
- I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.
