This is the card I made for my cousin Mindy to go with her present I gave to her at her shower! I just love it! I love that plaid and I love it as the shirt! Here we are with girly colors (even though she is having a boy, she is a girl). I have a hard time getting away from the girliness.
Pictures were taken last year. I made this by starting with a sketch challenge from Sketchy Thursdays. Paper, letters and punch outs are Crate Paper, Stamps are Unity, Ribbon is Basic Grey, Felt Flower is Making Memories.
I'm hosting Mindy's baby shower tonight (yes the date on the invite is wrong...silly me). I sent out two invites, one to Mindy and the other to Grandma Jensen (everyone else got evites). This is what the invites I sent out looked like. I thought they turned out super adorable, especially considering the fact that I don't have much boy things. I just love that little whale!
I think this card just turned out super adorable...(I feel like I can say this because lots of my cards don't). It was my first time to use both of these stamps. That was probably one of my favorite thing about these challenges, using my stuff. I used paper I have and stamps I had never used. It was great!
A few months ago, Grandpa Jensen asked if I would help him by being his personal shopper. His #1 thing to buy: cards. Grandpa Jensen has over 70 people in his posterity and he sends each of them a birthday card. Hallmark loves Grandpa Jensen. So I bought some birthday cards to start it out, but I have started to make some. They don't take as long as scrapbooking, and I emerge a more sane woman from my craft room after making them. I have all the supplies too. Plus, now I have a guaranteed customer.
Well, on October 1 was World Card Making day, did you know? My favorite stamp company, Unity, did 23 card challenges to celebrate. I need to make cards, so I figured I would play along. So over the next few days, I'm going to post some of the cards I liked from the challenges. Enjoy the cards!
This was the 3rd card I made for the challenges. This card is for my mother's birthday. I LOVE this card.
We had a ball in our kitchen the other week. Rebecca set it all up. In her mind, blankets had to be on the ground...that's what made the ball. We had to wear heels at the ball and there was music and we danced. Nina even joined in on the fun.
This past week feels like it was the hottest week this summer. So we got out this kiddie pool we got from our neighbor. I moved the rocket ship so the slide went into it. Dad got home later and he moved the bigger play sturcture (not in the pic) over, so there are two slides going into it. RJ played outside for hours this week! So great!
And to throw a Nina pic in because it has been a little while. Cutie pututie in christmas jammie.
