Love & Thanks {Pink & Main}

A quick card for a dear friend.  I used  Many Thanks  & Fun Hand stamps from Pink & Main.
The felt flower and gold doily were part of my winnings from Clique Kits.  Love that gold doily.

Pink & Main will be exhibiting at the CHA Paper Crafts Show in Atlanta.  If you are attending, please visit them at Booth #151.

Sweet 16

Today, my Sweet Dulce turned Sweet Sixteen and I wish time will stand still for a bit.

This cutie is one of the many My~Besties cuties by Sherri Baldy.  I used scraps and I mean scraps from Summer Fresh by Simple Stories.   

Happy Birthday my Sweet Dulce, love you to the moon and back.

Happy Everything

Well, there you go, this covers everything!  Should make more cards with this sentiment.  I used the new Happy stamp set by Pink & Main.  I also stamped the flowers on the coral paper using Flower Bouquet with blue Neon ink.
I got the paper from Target's Dollar Spot during Spring.  Love the coral, blue and gold colors. Difficult to capture, but the background has a gold shimmer, very pretty.

Simply. Thank you

I finally was able to get play with the Neon inks I purchased in June. I am a child of the eighties and still love Neon. I used Latina Crafter's free anniversary stamp set, Sencillamente, no longer available, well maybe it will sometime in the near future. :) 

This stamp is so pretty! I love the calligraphy font, so elegant!   Elegant  for the Neon ink too! :)  OH that purple is so pretty, not as bright as the other colors, but still pretty.
I have all the Neon colors so be prepared to see more may need your sunglasses. Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!!

Thank You Notes

Heat embossing truly adds so much more to your projects.  I love how the gold embossing powder with a touch of glitter turned out on these Thank You cards.   I used the sentiment from Pink and Main's Many Thanks stamp set.  The label is a die from Spellbinders that cut on Teresa Collins' Cut'N'Boss.  I love this lil' machine!

Notice the black brads, I used them again. There still on my craft table so who knows, they make it onto another project.

Here's Flipagram video {preview is a little grainy, but it really isn't that bad}:

Graduation Banner & {Freebie}

So extremely proud of my God-Son's recent graduation.  This is the banner I created for his graduation party. 
I used DC9's School Days Banner.  I created the loop by adding an extra tab and using the weld function in SCAL2.  I then used those retro brads to create the loop. {The brads will make another appearance}

Thank you for stopping by, please stop by and grab this week's freebie:


Father's Day

Sharing another Father's Day card tonight.  Made this one for my Dad using Latina Crafter's, Super Papá stamp set.  The paper is an older 6x6 pad from BasicGrey.   I used the black brads on this card too, and the next project I will share in a bit.

Thank you for stopping by tonight.
