Mike's Birthday Card

So our son Michael had a birthday the other day and here is the card I made for him. Even though he just turned 31 he still likes homemade cards. Looks like a plain card when you first take a look, but when you open it up....

It looks like this! Ta da! I love pop up cards they are so fun and this bear is just the cutest! The bear is from the stamp st Under The Stars, the birthday saying is from Family Phrases. I used the 1/2" circle punch and a point from the smallest star punch to make the balloons!

Here is a sideview of the inside. Hey why don't you try one! See you tomorrow! Have a good day!

Metal Flashing Flower Tea Light Holders

This was one of a pair of Tea Light Holders I made for my Hostess at my last workshop. They are so fun and easy to make! Can't wait to make some using Coke cans! Top view.
Side view.
I put them together using glue dots, our mono didn't seem to want to dry. They are very light weight and the glue dots worked wonderful. No sharp edges either. So what are you waiting for get your Big Shot and Flower Folds die out and give it a try! and if you don't have one I'd love to order one for you!

I'm Back! Finally! Yepee!!!!!

Ok, so was anyone worried about me? Boy I sure was! What a Summer! My daughter became engaged Memorial week-end. Ok Great! She calls me about two weeks later and says "Mom, do you think you and dad can help us get a wedding together by August 28th!?!" WHAT!!! "Sure Sweetheart, you bet we can. My daughter was never going to marry a farmer. Ha! Ha! to that one. They wanted to get married before harvest, which was a good idea for us too since that's what we do. So the planning began. (Oh and let's not forget to throw the Stampin' Up! Convention in the mix, I wasn't gonna miss that one!) First I had to beg from anyone I could find to get enough of the Cool Caribbean cardstock for the invites and favors as this was her main color with a hint of pink. Here's what we ended up with. The wedding was outdoors at the Lasta Winery, beautiful place for a wedding! The fans did come in handy. I'll try and post some wedding pictures when I get some good ones back from the photographer. Keep checking back, I've got a lot more to share, now that I'm back to stampin"!!!! (I'm back in my happy place.)

Shower invite, wedding invite, registration card, program, wedding favor, and a cone to hold flowers to throw.
Better view of wedding stuff. We also made RSVP cards but I can't find one right now and after making 175 invites and everything else, I'm done for now.

Hope you have a great day!!!
Come back tomorrow!
