Hardest Worker

It has been a long week for me.  I am happy it is Friday and it is time for Friends with Flare.  Unfortunately in life there is a need to make sympathy cards.  It really meant a lot to me when my Dad passed away and people sent such sweet cards.  It felt good to know  how much my Dad was loved and that people were thinking of me. Sometimes I never get around to sending a card because I want to make one and than time passes and it slips my mind.  So I set out to make a supply to have on hand.  For that task I went the hardest working stamps I own, Insightful Meadows.  If there was an award for Hardest Worker in the stamp kingdom, I think these would be definitely in the running in my book.  I use them for cards, scrapbooking pages and tags.  If you do not have these in your collection put them on you list.   Here are some of the cards I made.

Birthday Card

Happy FWF day everybody.  Also, Happy Memorial Day weekend. A huge thank you to all who have served in our armed forces.  

This week I made a birthday card.  You can never have enough cards on hand. Now if I would just take the next step and actually mail the card.

I am also going to link this up to Unity {be inspired} Challenge.  I just love me some Unity.  Also my other favorite spot 3 Girl Jam is having a blog hop.  Head on over there and see some great work and see their new great colors.

Have a safe happy kick off to summer this weekend.  Of course we are heading to the lake....but we have to clean up the  Maybe I will go separate and arrive AFTER the cleaning is done.

Cutest Couple

Happy Friday everyone.  We are off to a wedding this weekend.  It is going to outdoor on a ranch in ND.  We are hoping for sunshine and warmth but you never know.  We are prepared, we have boots, sandals, coats, umbrella and it is ND so we will bring our winter jackets.  This couple really is adorable.  So the card I made is quite appropriate.

Somebody Stop Me!

It's Yippy Skippy Friday again, that means FWF to fans of Unity Stamps.  I have been busy, busy, busy working and have not had time to do anything creative or even look at the FWF entries.  One of my favorite things to do on the weekend to get inspired.

It titled this post "Somebody stop me".  Any one remember the movie "The Mask" with Jim Carey years ago?  It was a catch phrase for a while.  It fits my card well this week.  I was just going to make a simple sheep-lamb stamped card.  No coloring, no bling, just as they say a CAS card or like every bride says when you ask how them about their wedding... "it will be simple but elegant".  Like most weddings I have been in or at that is rarely the case.  So goes it with my card.  Can you say pearls , gems, ribbon and hearts...break out the stash cuz Mama's on a mission...and nobody was there to stop me.

Here is my card.  It is for my Mom who raised sheep all her life.  But on like my card she is a no frills person.  That is OK everyone needs a little glitz every now and than.  I am also entering this card in the 3 Girl Jam Challenge.  To all you Mom's have a wonderful Mother's Day.  If you have a Mom treat her well if she is no longer on this earth, remember her and send her thanks.
