Rescue 911

This weekend Sydney and I are going to a birthday party for my godson who is turning three. Sydney knows that Jonathan is in LOVE with any kind of vehicle, but that firetrucks are his favorite. Sydney designed this adorable firetruck card all on her own. Mommy just had to help with some punching and cutting. We hope the birthday boy enjoys it as much as Sydney enjoyed creating it.

Easter Wishes

How do I pass the time when I am home with a sick kid? Crafting and blogging, of course...while Sydney enjoys a Dancing With the Stars marathon. (She'll get to watch more TV today than she usually sees in a month!) I suppose I should do some laundry and housework too. Here is the Easter card our family will be receiving this year. Inside it reads, "Hippity, Hoppity, Happity Easter." I used the SU Forest Friends set for my Easter Bunny image and added a Dazzling Diamonds tail. Along the edge you will notice that I used a Cuttlebug folder from the With Love set. I hope you all have a blessed Easter. I wonder if it is too much to ask for a healthy child and sunshine in Chicago on Sunday?

The wedding festivities continue this weekend with the (dreaded) bachelorette party - totally not my scene! I am pretty proud of the card I made though. I hope the bride gets a kick out of it. Provided that I survive the bachelorette party, I will post some Easter cards in the near future.

April Showers...Bring May Weddings

This weekend my mom and I attended a lovely shower for the bride-to-be from my prior post. As you recall, I made the invitations for the shower. As my shower gift for Julie and Darrell, I made matching thank you cards. I have also included a photo of the card I made for Julie's shower. I wish the photo quality had turned out better. Bummer. I used Denami Designs Mimi Bride and also Mimi With Flowers as the bridesmaids. Enjoy!
