Happy Birthdays!

Today two special ladies in my life celebrate their birthdays! My Mom and my oldest daughter! Yup, it's Happy Halloween and Happy Birthday... to the two witches in the family! This is the card I made for my Mom while stamping with a friend the other night. She has her very own store right in her basement...punches and dies and ribbon, oh my!! I used flower soft on the Queen anne's lace, giving it that 'wow' it needed. Thank you my friend for a fun night of sharing, laughter, and eating nuts off the floor! And for helping me create this beautiful card for my beautiful mother.

God's Promise

No card today, but a picture (not a very good one) of the beautiful rainbow we saw last night at supper time. For a brief minute or two it was a double rainbow, and then it all disappeared behind the clouds. This picture does not do it justice by far, but the colours were so vibrant I just wanted to look at it as long as I could. Did anyone else see it?

Double Whammy

A couple of cards to post today. The first is one I made at a recent Stampin Up party I went to. This owl punch is sooooo cute I just had to order it.....can't wait until it comes in!!! Did not put a sentiment on, because I'm just not sure whooooo to send it too yet!
I saw a card using this layout on a blog and decided to give it a try....not hard at all really. I used my large circle and scalloped circle from spellbinders. It was fun to do something other than an ordinary square or rectangle card....I will definitely do this style again.
I'd like to say I'll be back in my craft room again tonight.....I know there are more cards I should be making....but you know what tonight is.....biggest loser nite!!! I always feel so quilty, like I shouldn't be snacking while watching it....what would Bob and Jillian think?!!
Enjoy your day!
