Thanks SAS card

Welcome back,

    Here is one of the cards we will be creating at my SAS class on Sunday June 9th from 5-8. We will be making 12 cards with envelopes and sayings if you would like for $15. There will be 3 thanks which is this card, 3 baby, 3 birthday and 3 sympathy.  
Stamps: Vintage Verses
Inks: Basic Gray  
card stock: Note cards and envelopes ( 20 pre cut and scored ww) with envelopes. Vellum Card stock
Accessories: Calypso Coral stampin write marker, basic jewel rhinestone, and butterfly punch.
     I did the design behind the thanks by using a stampin write marker in this case Calypso coral colored the design on the stamp that said wishing you a day as perfect as you are just on the design and omitted the saying and then stamped the Thanks over it. A great technique when you only want a certain part of a stamp. come back soon to see the other cards we will be making that day.
Thanks for stopping by, til next time. Have a great evening.

Baby Emma Name Frame

     Welcome back to my family and creative corner blog. It's been a busy week. We have had carpenters, plumbers and central air people in. Just about everything has been done and is working well, ( knock on wood) yay! Still need to have some drawers in the kitchen to be fixed. 
     Today is one of my days off and with all that other stuff behind me I decided to craft.  Here is a frame that I made for my son's friend's and his girlfriend's baby girl who is due to arrive around
 June 19th. I was procrastinating this because of the color combo. I really wanted to use the butterflies Dsp from the retired  paper pack called Party Patio, there fore the colors were not your traditional baby girl colors but I was able to use some pink pirouette which matched the prim rose petals color and blended with the midnight Muse. I love making these frames. I think the colors worked o.k  for a baby girl. Let me know what you think?

Here are the supplies I used for this frame.
Stamps: Alphabet Post, Distressed Dots B.G. stamp.
Inks: Primrose Petals
Card stock: WW 12 x 12 card stock, Party Patio DSP, primrose Petals.
Accessories: Big Shot, Beautiful wings sizlit , Basic Pearls, Pretty in Pink satin Ribbon, safety pin from Vintage Trinkets, 5/8 flower trim and colored them with Primrose Petals  and Pink Pirouette stampin write markers, Little Leaves sizlit.

O.k. I think that was every thing, thanks for stopping by come back in a couple of days and see my SAS samples for my next upcoming class in June. Have a great day. Til next time.
Happy Stamping!

Mothers's day 2013

Welcome back,

   Mother's Day came and went. I worked from 8:30 til about 4:00, not a very fun way to celebrate Mother's Day. When I got home this is what was waiting for me on the table. My husband bought me the flowers and my younger son handed me the white chocolate Lindts when he picked me up that day. It really perked up my day. Then we went to Kimball's in NH to get my favorite Sundae, Peanut Butter chocolate chip ice cream with  hot fudge and whip cream. It turned out to be a wonderful Mothers Day in the end. 
Thanks Wayne and K.J.
Thanks for visiting, come back again. Til next time
Hugs everyone

New supplies

Welcome back friends

       The man in brown visited my house yesterday and delivered some new catty goodies such as the new In Colors card stock, ink and refills, to name a few plus our new annual catalog. I want to play but I don't have any inspiration at the moment. I hate when that happens. I have the time and the supplies but no ideas or creativity. Ugh! What's a girl to do? I guess I'll just organize my stuff and maybe something will inspire me. Wish me luck. Thanks for stopping by today. Til next time, enjoy this beautiful day.
Happy Stamping
