Fabulous Flowers!!!


I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend and got to spend some quality time with family!! We had my in-laws over for dinner on Saturday night and then yesterday we met my parents and my brother's family at Montana's for a lovely Easter lunch. It was lots of fun and the food was deeee-lish!!

My parents just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary but I hadn't seen them together to give them their card until yesterday. I got the Fabulous Flowers stamp set by Stampin' Up a while back with this card in mind to give them on their anniversary. Well, not this card exactly but I have seen so many gorgeous creations using this set on SCS, that I knew I had to design something elegant using the big flower for them.

I stamped the big flower twice using Almost Amethyst on Whisper White cardstock and I stamped one of the smaller flowers too. I cut them all out leaving a little white around the edges and I cut one of the big flowers down a bit too. I used the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique on all the flowers and made them all sparkly!! The card base is a white square with Almost Amethyst as matting underneath the soft and pretty dp which is by Karen Neuberger. I used the ticket corner punch on the corners and used some String of Pearls Bellas Baubles in the corners and also in the middle of the smallest flower. I used some SU white taffeta ribbon (LOVE the taffeta ribbon) and a sparkly buckle. I stamped the sentiment from the Hugs and Wishes SU set and popped up all the layers on the flower! I really think they liked it.....well, Mom did anyway!! Men just don't get it, right?!! Hahaha!



This second card is one I did for my brother's family, especially Matthew who is 4 years old! I knew he would like the bunny with the big ears! It's a very simple design, but cute all the same, I think! I used the My Favorite Things set called Eggstra Special Easter!!

Well, I have today off and so does Emileigh so I told her I'd take her shopping for a new outfit to wear on Saturday night. She will be turning SIXTEEN this week.....good grief!!! It's just not right, I tell ya!! Wasn't it just the other day that I turned 16?? I'm sure it was......MOM? Help me out.....it WAS just yesterday, right??? I don't know how I'm going to deal with this. It might be a tough week for me. We were just talking yesterday about Easters back when she was 3 or 4. We used to hide all the Easter eggs and candy and she would go around with her little basket and find everything. Then she'd make us hide everything again, so that she could go find it all again. It was one of her favourite games and we'd do it 3 or 4 times before she'd get tired of it. SO cute.

Ugh. Okay. I'm officially depressed. Hahahaha! I'm really not old enough to have a 16 year old, am I? I didn't think so.

Oh just look at it this way- you do not LOOK old enough to have a 16 yo even if you are old enough (yeah, that is what I am telling myself as my son will be 16 this year!). They do grow up fast- love that bunny card girl!

Hi Kim,
Your cards are just beautiful....all of them...you are so talented! I have been visiting your blog frequently for a while now. I was very happy to see you make the Magnolia DT. You inspired me to try colouring with SU markers but it isn't as easy as you make it look! I love all your Magnolia creations...they are my passion too! Keep up the great work!
