Punch People: 2 of 3

I love how this one turned out. She looks so elegant in her summer Sunday best. I was really glad I had the “grace” stamp to go with her. If I was naming her, I would definitely name her Grace.
Thanks for visiting me & have a great July 4th weekend!


Distressed Dress

Hey there.  I’ve finally managed to squeeze in some time to post.  I don’t have any idea what happened this week, but it disappeared.
My oldest turned 5 this week.  She’s getting so grown up and independent, but all I really have to compare her to are her 3.5 and 1.5 year old brothers.
Anyway…here’s a card [...]

One of a kind

And I used some more paper from the goodie bag, so is should look a little familiar by now.
I’m going to get the other cards [...]

my bff

Today’s card uses the same set of page elements as yesterday’s card.  This one is super fast.  I just played around with the chipboard alpha to see what I could spell.  (it was a lot like playing scrabble)
Here’s what I came up with:

I’m not sure I really like it, but when I was challenging myself [...]

Graduation tag

Hello.  I’m finally back with some new things to show you.  I apologize for missing the weekly features yet again.  We’re all taking turns with some weird virus here.  The last kid is finally on the mend so hopefully I’ll get some more stamp time back.
