Look Who's 1!

I can't believe it.. I'm still in baby boy is going to be ONE in a week! The past year has certainly flown by!

We're having a birthday party for him this weekend (a Sesame Street party- pics of the decorations I've made coming soon!) and of course this mama's got to make her sweet boy his FIRST birthday card :)

1st Birthday

I altered the Birthday Ian stamp slightly to change the banner saying, and I'm playing along with The Greeting Farm's Retro Fresh Challenge to use Polka Dots and/or plaid- just perfect for a little boy card! :)  I'm also joining in on the sketchy fun at Retro Sketches (I rotated & added few embellishments to their sketch!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Sending Sunshine

We're definitely getting PLENTY of sunshine around here! We've already hit the 90's and it doesn't look like 100 degrees is too far away :(

Like I said in my previous post I'm trying to find & enter more challenges- (please let me know of any others out there!), and with this one I decided to enter a few!

Sending Sunshine

The Greeting Farm is celebrating Earth Day with this week's Double Take Tuesday challenge- I thought this Peace image was just perfect! I chose to play along with the color combo (I had lots of fun coloring her tie-dye shirt!)

I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes, AND I used Deconstructed Sketch #99!

Espressly for You

I've been bit by the coloring bug recently and decided to find some new challenges to enter!

My sis-in-law has a birthday this weekend, so I pulled out this super cute MFT Miss You a Latte image and played along with their sketch challenge (MFTWSC121) this week!

To You From Me

One last card for the Karber Challenge!

This time I used "Knitting Jessy"...  my mom & my sisters all knit/crochet so she is just a perfect image for all of them. I finished off the card with some more buttons and twine of course! :)

Back again with another card for the Karber Challenge: Favorite embellishments!

This time I used the adorable "Gift Millie" for a card to add to my birthday card stash! Of course I added buttons and twine to finish it off! :)


I'm also playing along with deconstructed sketch #94!

One more card coming soon...
