Cheers to 5 years!

Yesterday my son and his wife celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary!  Of course, I needed to make them a card so I thought I'd share it with you.
 To make this card I used an file from SVG Cutting files for this twisty card...talk about easy to put together!  The sentiment outside is also from SVG Cutting files and is from the May Cut Club bundle.  Papers are from a retired SU! paper pack that includes my favorite SU! color, Rose Red.  I cut the inside letters and heart on my Scan N Cut with files that are in the machine.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Java Time stamp set.  I used that sentiment as they are parents to a three year old and a 17 month old so coffee is important!
I'm linking this up to a couple of challenges, Die Cut Divas: Wedding/Anniversary, Crafts Galore Encore: Anything Goes, Cards TV: Anything Goes, and If You Give A Crafter A Cookie challenge. 

I do believe they thought it was a neat card and we had fun watching the kids while they went to a movie and dinner.  Here is to another five years of love, laughter and family for them!

Just around the bend...

Before you know it we will find ourselves at Father's Day weekend so I've worked on a couple of clean and simple cards these last couple of days and I'm happy to say...I'm done!  Woot! 


I love how different these cards are and how perfect they are for each of the recipients which is the fun thing about making our own cards.  All three cards are made with SVG files from SVG Cutting Files Cut Club and Kawaii files.  The sentiment and flower dies are from Jaded Blossom.  I just added some stars because dads are stars!  A little bit of gel pen gave the cuts some fun character!

Next up on my list this week is to get a graduation card made.  I have a plan so I just need to get it executed!  Go me!  What are you working on right now?

Almost Birthday Time!

We are quickly approaching my grandson's 3rd birthday so I've been doing a little creating.  A few days ago I saw the We R Memory Keepers pinwheel board on Amazon and I thought they would be fun to make for the grandkids to play with so yesterday I made some pinwheels for the grandkids and their cousins. Check 'em out!





 All the pinwheel are 10" and made with two sheets of 8"x8" patterned papers that I've had in my craft room for quite some time...apparently they were waiting just for this time! And what is fun about these pinwheel is when you get the pinwheel attachments they are actually functioning pinwheels...so fun!

Well, there you have it for today!  I hope you have a wonderful last day of your weekend!

A Mother's Day Sunflower

Happy Friday my blogger friends!  It has been a wonderful day here at my house...there was nothing on my calendar today!  I actually got quite a bit done...cleaned up the toy box for the grandkids, vacuumed the living room, washed sheets, made lunch for my hubby, and, my favorite part, I made a Mother's Day card for a friend!
This card features Molly Sunflower from Stamp Anniething.  isn't she just the cutest?  Oh my...I love the images from them!  The paper and embellishments are from Simple Stories and is from the Sunshine & Happiness collection.  I have to tell you...I really love this card!  It is clean, it is simple, and it is super cute!  The card layout is the CAS(E) the Sketch sketch challenge for the week.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!  If you are a mama...have a wonderful Mother's Day!  If you aren't...spoil that mama!
