I’m tired! I have so much to share but not much energy. So this post isnt the most “cheery” one you will ever read. The week is catching up to me and I feel a bit overwhelmed with “To Do’s”. NOT good for the mojo.

Today was my daughter Alexa’s first day back to school. The first FULL day ever! I guess she seemed tired at the end of the day, but did well. Once she got home she must have got a second wind cause there was no sign of exhaustion. My baby is growing up.

On the other hand-How nice to have part of the day be quieter.

I got alot done today, but will share that stuff over the next couple of days.

Today I have lots of sneak peeks to share.

Are you ready? I hope so, cause I have another post ready to go for tomorrow.

Well I suppose I will start with this one!

shower time Shower of Wishes

This is a card I made for my friend Tracey. It was for her Virtual Baby Shower. I made it using the Shower Time set by MFT Stamps. Only a couple days left till you get to order it!

The umbrella and bkgd layer is vellum cardstock  stamped using Behind the Scenes with Brilliance ink. The umbrella is cut, and embossed with my stylus.

I got the paper from Michaels. It went perfect with this set!!

Big Surprise

staks of gifts This card was done using the New! High Hellos set by Lizzie Anne (due out September 10th). I was inspired by some patterned paper (unsure who makes it-sorry) for my colors.

I made the paper into a larger gift by tying around some paper strips to look like ribbon. That was FUN! I never used paper as ribbon before. You should try it.

Well Wishes

wishing you well I made this card for Bethany’s mother.

I had this idea in my head for a while, and now was the perfect time to execute it. Her mother was diagnosed with Cancer. Obviously a situation I unfortunately understand first hand, having my own daughter currently fighting Leukemia.

My heart broke as I read Bethany’s post.

Anyway-this is the card I made special for her. I hope to pop it in the mail tomorrow. I think its cheery, and a nice design for a Thinking of You type thing.

The Wishing Well is from Gina K’s  Make A Wish stamp set. $7 from the sale of every set benefits the Make A Wish Foundation. Its such a great cause for a super sweet set.

I used my little primas to fill the well. As a kid we had a well like this in our backyard.

I love them. I had one in my yard, at our house, but someone ran it over! Needless to say I didn’t get another one.

All my images are colored with my Copic Markers.

Stay tuned tomorrow-I have MYTIME MAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And some Paper Trey samples 😀
