A Day Late...

I made this card last week for the color challenge at colorQ, cQc#142, but I didn't get a picture taken in time to link it to their site. Oh well...and, after I took the picture I noticed I had goofed up on on of the banners. Do you see the mistake?!?! I adapted this layout from a card I saw on Pinterest. 

Stamp Set: Petite Pairs
Card Stock: Summer Smooches Designer Paper, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Very Vanilla
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: Linen Thread, Brights Button, Oval Punch, Apothecary Accents Framelits

Personal Note: 
This week our kids begin swimming lessons. I signed them up for the "short" course...four days, but an hour each day. My in-laws are coming tonight to stay for two days and watch the kids play soccer, I'm having a garage sale on Thursday and Friday that I'm getting ready for, and Lily starts 3 on 3 b-ball this week. It's another full week for us!

Wish Big

This "card" is simple, but cute! I adhered the white card stock on a melon mambo scalloped envelope that I die cut (sorry, but his die is retired). I stamped wish big in pumpkin pie and tied a ribbon around and candled. I adhered the candle with glue dots. On an inside card panel, I stamped the saying "...blow out your candles one by one..." (I did not get a picture of it before I gave it our niece.)

For the next few days I will be busy getting ready for my open house on Thursday! I'm in the cleaning mood, so I should have a lot of goodies to sell:)

Happy Monday.

A new post...it's about time! School is out, and I'm hoping I have more time to spend stamping and posting. My niece, Jordan, graduated from high school and this is the card I made for her.

I love the banners if you haven't noticed and be prepared to see more projects with banners:) Jordan loves zebra prints, and I had some zebra paper laying around that was perfect for her! I stamped the saying and used the framelits to die cut it out and then added a layer of melon mambo. I paper pierced around the edge of the melon mambo.
