Mother's Day gifts

This is a photograph envelope that I am giving to my mother and my mother-in-law for Mother's Day this year.

I found the instructions at Becky Oehler's blog. She made her photo pouch from Papetrey Ink envelopes. I decided to make my own envelopes from textured cardstock.

The directions for custom envelopes can be found on the Scor-Pal website.I cut my cardstock to 6-3/4" by 10-3/4" the sentiment was compute-generated and printed on Very Vanilla (StampinUp!) cardstock.

Two new cards

This is my card for today's Limited Supply challenge at The challenge was to make a card based on a room in your house. I chose to use the colors in our guest bathroom, olive and wine. The pattern on the shower curtain and towels is roses, so of course I needed to use a rose stamp.

I am a bit proud of myself with this card; I actually used some of my hoarded retired In Color stuff!

Cardstock: True Thyme, Purely Pomegranite,Very Vanilla
Stamp: Inkadinkadoo clear stamp, Stitched bg
Ink: True Thyme, Purely Pomegranite, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Purely Pomegranite satin ribbon, brads, word window punch

This is my card for tomorrow's shoe box swap for the FL Stamping Sisters group. This was a fun card to make.

Go here to sign up for a newsletter on how to make the die cuts with SU!'s Top Note Die. It is so simple!

Cardstock: Rose Red, So Saffron, Rose Red DSP
Stamps: Soft Summer, Oval All
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, So Saffron, MellowMoss
Accessories: Top Note die, brads, large oval punch, scalloped oval punch.

Happy Easter (belated!)

I hope everyone had a happy Easter and enjoyed some family time.

My husband and I (and his parents) drove to Orlando after church to have dinner with my family. It was a great afternoon; everyone (except my older brother & his family who live in VA) was there. We enjoyed ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes (yum!), veggies, pies, fruits, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something!
