More Petals & Stems

I should not make cards, take pictures and then wait a month or more to post them. I can't remember anything about them...guess that's why I should start making notes and keeping them. I think to myself that I should 'write this down' but never follow through, so I'll try harder at that so I have all the details!

These cards are the same, I just flipped the orientation. :D

One is for an anniversary, the other for a birthday. See that little charm hanging there? Those are shrinky dinks - man, I've forgotten how much I like doing those and what fun they add to a card!

I have some close-ups of the shrinky dinks I'll show you too. The stamp set used is by Verve Visual called "Petals & Stems"; I just love the stamp set!

The gorgeous dew drops were purchased from Ellen Hutson's store; I now have 4 bottles of different colored dew drops - YUMMY! They're such fun and I love the colors, I want them ALL!

What's everyone doing this weekend? We were supposed to have a baseball tournament SmileyCentral.comall day today but its been rained out. SmileyCentral.comThankfully DH took our son this morning - they had to leave at 6:30 a.m. - INSANE! I got up about 7:15 a.m., DH called about 7:30 a.m. to say no rush, it's pouring down rain. I went ahead and got everyone up and started breakfast, he called back at 7:45 a.m. to say it had been canceled. BUMMER!

I've missed watching the boys play. They're going to play fall ball until Thanksgiving - oh my - then they'll take a break and start back up in March. AND our little guy will be playing football during this time too; so craziness abounds!

I hope you're having a great weekend; I'm looking forward to sneaking in a bit of stamp time!

And...watching the Olympics!SmileyCentral.com

Thanks for popping in! Hugs, ~M.


  1. Very cute! Love the shrinky dinks. :-)

    We must get together soon before school starts up again!


  2. Hey girl! You always inspire me with your cards! Beautiful job! I hope you are feeling better. Sorry to hear about your friend (on you most current post) will keep her in my prayers.

    I love the nestabilities dies! Makes me wish I hadn't spend the money on the marvy punches. Isn't that the way it always goes with scrap supplies though? Take care! Hugs ~ Toni


Thank you so much for visiting and taking time to leave me a note! I read every single one and *heart* hearing from you. Hugs, ~M.
