{happy Mother’s Day

Am blogging by the pool. My house is being cleaned, my car has been washed, and I received sunflowers, a caramel frap, bacon for breakfast and rolos. I think there is lobster in my future. I made some box cards for the moms and grandma.


They are so fun to make.





They fold flat. Sort of



Have a great day and check out http://www.teamknk.com and you can get the file to make the basic card. I used sizzix dies for the flowers and Martha for the leaves, border, tag, and butterflies. I used Photoshop to make the word art since I didn’t have a Mother’s Day stamp.

Enjoy. Excuse the crappy iPhone pictures.

My post is up. You should go look at it. And give me love. Yeah, I’m blatantly asking for it. That’s how I roll.

Besides, I’m on a pity party for one. A student accidentally tripped me yesterday and I twisted my bad knee.  I woke up this morning hurting pretty badly. I’m all braced up again.

{Owl cards

Inspiration comes from everywhere. I love this owl that M. Pierce uses.


In fact, if you haven’t read the book Night Owl. Do IT. It was one of my favorite books of 2013. Get it here.

It is such a well-written book. The second one comes out in early Summer. I can’t wait.

Anyway, I used the above owl to make a little set of cards. I cut the owl out in black card stock and then put him on 4.25×4.25  kraft cards with a 4×4 punched background (I can’t believe I actually purchased Martha Stewart punches. I did. And I love them. So there.)


These pictures aren’t great, think my lens needs to be cleaned. I used the G12 to take these.

Here are the individual cards close up, in case you’re interested:

I have a stamp that says “You’re a Hoot” and I can’t find it! Oh well, I used other assorted greetings, so it works.20140302-IMG_1262

I need to think of a project for this month. That’s the worst part…thinking. The doing part isn’t so tough.
