Track Stars

Hi Stampers,

Our two oldest grandchildren are in track and field. Last week at one of their meets, Connor (our oldest grandson) had a best personal record of 37 foot, 2 inches in the shotput!!! Of course, I had to make cards to send them. It looks a little juvenile but I really had to rack my brain for this one. The snowball from the retired stamp set Snow Much Fun was perfect for a shotput. I made a spinner card to look like he was throwing it.

Here he is in real life:

Our other grandson, Logan, is a runner. I swear he has the longest legs. He is only in 8th grade and is already 6'3"!!!! I didn't have any stamps to use on his card so I got out some old Sizzix dies I had, Stampin' Up! framelits and went with it.

Happy Mother's Day

Hi Stampers,

I hope everyone was able to celebrate a gorgeous and wonderful Mother's Day with their families. I know I did. Our middle daughter, Courtney, had us over for brunch and hubby cooked us omelets. It was in the mid-70's today and gorgeous!! Not bad for Michigan!!! Afterwards we went outside and made stepping stones. That was so much fun!!!

Here I am helping our youngest grandson Barrett aka Bear make his:

He is such a cutie patootie and we love him so much!!!

I even got to come home and stamp a little. All in all, a PERFECT MOTHER'S DAY!!!

Thank you for stopping by!!

 


Garden Workbench & Card!

Hi Stampers,

Today's Craft Project Central project is designed by Sandy Mott.  If you love gardening, or have a friend/relative who gardens, they would love receiving this adorable workbench and matching card. The workbench features potted plants and flowers, complete with gardening tools, gloves, and mud boots. The card matches the workbench, and as all gardeners know, a gift from the garden is a work of HEART. This project fits the bill. The workbench is a cinch to put together. The pots, plants, and tools are all hand cut, but oh so worth the effort!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #230-Gifts from the Garden-free pdf!!!

#230

Hi Stampers,

Back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge!! This week we are focusing on retiring stamp sets. Yup, you know the drill, the ones that are walking the stamping plank. The retiring stamp sets will continue to be made through May 22. After that, it is solely as supplies last. So, be sure to place your order today!!!!

Because of upcoming Mother's Day, I chose to use the retiring stamp set Gifts from the Garden and Greatest Greetings. I made little flower pot holders. You can either put a pellet refill in the bottom and roll up a seed packet OR you can buy a little succulent plant. You can also make your own with the Oh So Succulent bundle. The greeting from Greatest Greeting is perfect for these!! You grow girl!!!

Oh So Succulent

Hi Stampers,

Well as much as I tried to convince myself I did not need the Oh So Succulent Bundle, somehow it ended up at my house **wink**. I'm sad that Stampin' Up! is retiring this set. I thought this set would be so popular. Succulents are so popular right now and EVERYWHERE!!! I always seem to jump on the bandwagon when I see that "I might not be able to order that" and go into an instant panic. Before you know it, it's at my house.

I am so glad I ordered this bundle. There are SO MANY beautiful cards on Pinterest made with this bundle. I will definitely be playing with this set a lot.

My card is based on the layout of a card I received from my upline, Dawn Olchefske. I just changed the sentiment and stamp set.
