This and That

I promised you cards, and I came prepared!
My daughter saw the recent Star Wars movie...and we convinced her to see the rest of them.  We have a wonderful neighbor who owns the collection and let her borrow them a couple of months back.  She absolutely loved them all!  I had make her a related birthday card. I found this fun idea on Pinterest and had all the punches on hand!

My mother celebrates her birthday the same day as my daughter, so we always enjoy that special time.  Here is my mother's birthday card:

My mother-in-law celebrates this month too.  For  last Christmas from my in-laws I received this awesome hot tea maker.  I felt sharing that cup-o-love was appropriate:

Finally, I here is another fun stamped card from the set I purchased last month and a new embossing folder.  This makes me laugh and I hope it does you too!

Congratulations Graduates of 2016!
I didn't know any kids who graduated in 2015, so I was glad I had the opportunity to help a couple of teens this year in their celebration.

Here are two cards I made to help celebrate their momentous occasion.  The first uses black and red embossing for the congrats word.  They both have glitter in the "2016."  I'm not a huge fan of glitter because of the mess, but I felt this was a special celebration and worthy of glitter!  Blessings to all those who graduated and take that leap of faith into the big wide world.  May God direct your path as you seek his wisdom and understanding.  You are our future leaders and we have faith in you!

We're headed to see family end of this week and next week.  I hope to post a couple of more blogs during our vacation of the cards I'll be passing out on the trip...
3 birthdays
1 anniversary
3 Father's Day cards.

And before I forget to mention, happy 19 year anniversary to my amazing husband!!  I'm so lucky to be your mate for life and thank God for you everyday.
