Happy Birthday to a very special little monster

Wow!  It's been a long time since I've posted anything!  I have been busy making cards, I just haven't gotten around to posting them to my blog!

Here is my latest.  Joseph turned 2 today and he loves monsters!  Even better, they are so easy to find on clothing.  So, in addition to his 'monster' card he also received monster pj's.  Too cute.  Inside the card I stamped "to a very special little monster".  He loved it.  :-)

Wedding Card

Here is a wedding card I made last night.  Just in time for the wedding today.  I even stamped the envelope!  I'm very happy with the way the card turned out.  It's a special wedding that we are going to and I wanted the card to be special as well.  I just can't get enough of this Stitches and Swirls stamp set.
Love.  Love.  Love.

 Here is the inside of the card...
 I love stamping envelopes!

PTI Make it Monday #64

Happy 90th birthday Grandma!

I made this card for my Grandmother's 90th birthday.  My inspiration was from the Make It Monday #64.   It is the very first Make it Monday that I have participated in.  Yippee!  It was also way more difficult than I anticipated.  I'm not sure if it was because of the color amount, color restriction or just the fact that I wanted to make a special card for my grandma!

I used the colors from this picture...

This the card I came up with...

Everything on the card was from Papertrey Ink (except the Stickles).  I'm completely gaga over their stamps!

I hope to participate in more MIM's in the future!  Thanks for looking!

World's Greatest

An usher at our church retired recently and yesterday there was a little party for him.  He was an usher for over 40 years at our parish.  Wow!  My family likes him very much.  He's always managed to scare our children into staying in their pews!  Thanks to this Make It Monday by Nicole Heady a few weeks ago and this adorable card by Sue, I was able to do this card.  Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday Baby Brother!

My brother turns 32 on the 25th of the month.  This is the card I made for him thanks to the great idea by Nicole Heady.  I loved the way it turned out and can't wait to do more with different colors.
Thanks for stopping by!

Away at Camp

My 12 year old went away to 6th grade camp recently and we had the option to mail him letters  to receive while away.  Well of course I had one for each day!  Here are the cards I sent.

Thanks for looking at my newborn blog!

I was inspired by this great card by Niki to use baseballs as a background.  Thank you!  My son loved it!
