Despite my best intentions of getting in some significant stamping and/or scrapbooking time last week, I was only able to set aside time for a couple of cards. This week however, I think I might actually get to spend some time creating! Woo-hoo!
This is a belated Mother's Day card for my mother in law who was out of town on Mother's Day. I wasn't sure I was going to like the Poppy Parade In Color when it came out in the Stampin' Up! catalog last year but I've got to say that it's awfully cheery! I think you'll be seeing it a little more this summer as I use it while it's still available.
And this is the card I made for my dad and father in law. I had been pondering this sketch ever since I first saw it and finally decided to use it for Father's Day. While masculine cards have been difficult for me in the past, The Open Sea stamp set and the Nautical Expedition DSP sure made this years card a snap! I'd highly recommend both of these items!
That's all for now....be sure to stop back by later this week and see what I get accomplished with a little me time! :o)
