Thank You Card ~ Up, Up and Away

When our daughter was little she liked hot air balloons.
We took her to a hot air balloon festival.
She picked out material and I made her hot air balloon curtains.
The hot air balloons were even rainbow colored.
When I saw this Lawn Fawn set I just HAD to have it.
It invoked such sweet memories.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Balloons and clouds cut using the Blue Skies die set from Lawn Fawn.
*Balloons and sentiment from the Blue Skies stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*RD4, OR4, YL2, GR3, BL6 and PR4 markers from Chameleon.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.

Sorry to be MIA... Everything is Okay


OMGosh I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted...

This week my husband's aunt has been visiting from out of state. 
{She is our age so she is more like a sister}
We've been showing her all around getting home 
late from each day's wonderful adventure.
We have had such a wonderful time

I hope your summer has been a wonderful one so far.
Hugs,
Dawn

Sympathy Card ~ For You

Sympathy cards are always the hardest for me to make.
 I think because it reminds me of those I've lost, how I felt 
at the time and how the recipient must be feeling now.
I fell in love with this embossing folder when I saw it.
I love how it adds a little soothing elegance to the card.
To finish my card I simply stamped the flower, 
colored it up and added a few rhinestones.




*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flower from the Mon Ami stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays.
*Embossed sentiment using the With Sympathy folder from Darice.
*Rhinestones from Triveni Crafts.
*B32 marker from Copic
*Memento London Fog stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
