Wow where does the time go?

It's been forever since I posted anything. I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. I've been busy with getting the pool opened, cleaning up  my gardens, and we took a trip to Washington D.C. with my parents. I am still making cards though just haven't had a chance until now to get them uploaded. I made 2 beautiful Mother's Day cards and forgot to take a picture of them LOL. But my nephew & sister both had birthdays as well as my Mom-in-law so I do have pictures of those.
Here they are……

This was for my nephew Cameron who turned 13 on June 5th and loves to play basketball.
 He said to tell you his feet aren't that big LOL.

Now here is My sister's card, she likes to remind me that she is much younger than me…..(only 3 years and when you are little that is a lot, but not so much when you get to be my age Hee Hee!!).  I love this image, I think she is adorable! 

I actually used some of the paper I got in my Simon Says Stamp June card kit from My Mind's Eye called, Now & Then Mildred. I used Glossy accents on the balloon and the girl's glasses.

Of course I used Copic makers, my favourite thing to colour with to make this sweet girl come alive. I like to ink the edges of my paper with Distress ink, and added some bling with Stickles.

I always like to try to finish the inside of cards, and with this one I also stamped a light image of the birthday girl in the corner.

Here's a cute Uptown girl image from Stampin' Bella that I used for my Mom-in-law. I finally got to use the die-namics Floral Fusion cover up die that I purchased a while ago and some paper from the Bo Bunny Primrose collection.

I coloured her with my copies, paper pieced her dress
 and added stickles to the icing layers on her cake.

I had a set of Bo Bunny Primrose Note-worthy die cuts 
and they matched perfectly for the inside of the card.

I have a few more cards to show you but I will save that for my next post. Hope life has been treating you all well and that you are enjoying the summer weather.

Chat at you soon,
