Happy Tuesday

It has been an exhausting day so far... I am hopeful the rest of the day will be more relaxed!

My cousin (dads side of the family) and my aunt's sister (moms side of the family) came over today. My cousin is making some awesome wedding gifts and needed to use a cricut machine and a cartridge with a cursive font. So.... thankfully they both came over here because Carver was a crazy little person while they were here and I can only imagine how he would have acted at someone else's home! I didn't even get to play because he kept me so busy! He dumped out all the cat food... tried to dump out the kitty litter... whew... I am glad for the little rest I am getting while he is napping! Three year olds are sooo active! :) I think I should be napping instead of posting! :)

Well... enough whining... you didn't come here to hear all of that, did you? :)

Here are two cards that I made a couple of weeks ago!

This is like the 3rd card that I have made like this one... I just love that butterfly!

Stamps - Gem Stone Insects (Inkadinkado), Friend Centers (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Paper - Sahara Sand (SU)
Ink - Versamark, Violette (Superior)
Other - Kaiser Rhinestones, SU Corner Rounder, Clear emboss powder (Superior), copics

Stamps - Just Circles (Unity), Loving Words (Technique Tuesday)
Paper - Brilliant Blue and Sahara Sand (SU)
Ink - Versamark, Violette (Superior)
Other - sewing machine, thread, Clear Emboss Powder (Superior), E Line Crystals (Prima), SU Dimensionals

Hope you all have a great day!

Peace and Love!

Beautiful cards! So simple and yet eloquent!! And I love the stitching too - looking good! Remind me sometime to show you a trick with ribbon and stitching.....

Perfect sentiment for the butterfly stamp, I love how you can showcase putting two or three stamps sets together and making them work. So pretty!

Beautiful cards! That butterfly is fantastic and I love how you framed in the second card with your zigzag stitching. Cheers!
p.s. I remember about three-year olds - mine are now eight (almost) and five - hang in there girl, it does get easier! :) (I think that is why there is such thing as nap time - aka re-charge time for Mom!)
