Work of Art-Tic-Tac-Toe Card

I really love this stamp set. I know you will too, once you can order it on June 2nd, Noon, Mt. Time.
I was really trying to figure out something totally out of the box for this stamp set. This is what I came up with. These are two new In Colors, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss. I also used the Itty Bitty Accessory Punch Pack for the flowers on the bottom. When I started playing with the long line stamp it made me think about tic tac toe. Does it remind you of the same thing?

You can order any of these products beginning on, Monday, June 2nd. Only a few more days......have you made your wish list yet? Mine is a mile long......

Work of Art Happy Birthday Card

My dear friend Patty Bennett is having a birthday today. Happy Birthday Patty! This is the card I made for her.
I used LOTS of new products:

Work of Art Stamp Set
Meadow Moss, Tangelo Twist
Hello Honey (all new In Colors)
Meadow Moss 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon (so easy to tie a knot or bow)
Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (heart punch)

I have to say, even though I have the wood mount stamps in this set (We received FREE when we went to the Catalog Premiere), the chevron stamp was so easy to stamp in the 3 different colors. 
Don't worry, you only have a few more days until the NEW CATALOG goes LIVE!

Happy Memorial Day

I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day! We had a nice BBQ with our kids and grand kids yesterday. Ribs, hamburgers and hot dogs. Watermelon, macaroni salad and more. We topped it off with Strawberry Shortcake.
This was the best photo I could get of all of them together. They had a ball in the pool all afternoon. The big joke is: Are your feet and hands pruney? (is that even word?) They didn't care. Only got out long enough to eat and then right back in. All they needed was the pool noodles and diving sticks and they were happy campers!

We almost got Jesse in the pool. He wants to go in, but still not sure. He loves playing in the sprinklers. He turned 6 months old on the 22nd.

Memorial Day is hard for us as we lost my Father-in-law 14 years ago on Memorial Day. In fact, we were working in the yard when we got the call that Dad had a heart attack and died peacefully in his chair at home. Just like he wanted. His wish was to be at home, and go before my Mother-in-law which he did. So this morning we went and put flowers on his grave that he shares with my MIL. He loved Peonies, and just happened to find some at Trader Joe's.

Since my mom is also at the same cemetery we put some pink Lilly's on her grave.  Holidays are so hard for us since we have lost all of our parents. Make sure you hug the ones you love, before its too late!

Thank you to all the service men and women who have lost their lives or are injured so we can be free.

For You Card

This is the card Anthony and I made for Miss Nanette, to go with her pail full of handmade cards. I made the front, (Anthony put the Rhinestones on the flowers for me). This sentiment is from the April My Paper Pumpkin.
Anthony wanted animals inside the card. Zoo Babies to the rescue. Also, notice the "grass". He wanted to use the Fringe Scissors, perfect for "grass". He wrote his name on the bottom.
 He knows how to use his scissors to put the Rhinestones in the center of the flowers.
 Here he is using his muscles to cut out the Deco Label for the inside of his card.
 I put some Kit Kat miniature candy bars inside this cute little box.
5" x 6 1/2" cardstock or dsp
Score on the long side, 1/2", 2 1/2", 3 1/2", 5 1/2"
turn, score 1"

Since I used cardstock, I stamped the flowers from Petite Flowers all over and then put the box together with the new adhesive, (available June 2nd) Fast Fuse. Love it!
 Here I get a snuggle from Gianna (youngest granddaughter).
Grandpa's turn now. I won't tell you how many times I had to take this photo......Grandpa was not cooperating. I should post the silly ones too.
