Polaroid WEEK !!

Hi all! Hope that this week has been as good to you as it has to me <3. I am getting ready to take the kiddo's on a walk so we can enjoy this lovely weather we are having. On thursday evening, my husband and I will be taking our first trip since the baby was born. We have a wedding in Las Vegas to attend and will be there until Sunday. WOOHOO! Although, I am super nervous about missing my little ones, though I am also very much looking forward to a vacation.

Graduation Card

I was checking our calendar today (the only way I can stay organized: writing things down!) ... only to realize that early next month my husbands cousin is graduating from high school. We are planning to attend the graduation party& I thought I should create her a card to be prepared. On their invitation it mentioned that the class color was purple; so I created a fun card using purple elements.

CPS Card Challenge Post

Hi! I'm back this week with another CPS weekly challenge card. This week's challenge is looking to be super fun and I had a good time creating my card while my daughter was running about making a card for a nice vendor who consistently gives her free food at our local farmers market. I love that by watching me she's learned to show appreciation with a homemade card, thats my girl! 

So, here's the sketch. I love that it's a longer card, even though I didn't use the style for my entry. I will probably end up going back and making another using this size. Who doesn't need a few pre-made cards to stick some money into for say... graduation etc?

HB2U Card

In all my sewing excitement I realized that I hadn't done more than a few projects with my new stamps/paper/accessories from simon says stamp. 

SO, I took nap time today to work on a mother's day project that has been going since last october (i believe? ) ... i mean seriously running slow on it ! & I also made this card. I didn't have anyone particular in mind but I really enjoyed using a scrap piece of ribbon from lily's May Day Dress. 

I used paper from the kissing booth & hello luscious
stamp is from ali edwards [i believe??]

The May Day Dress

On May Day when Lily was napping I took to my sewing room and created a spring inspired dress that I'd been ruminating about all week. I had it all laid out [as you can see by the last post], and I was bound and determined to make this one better - well, with a LOT less mistakes,trial&error,etc- than the last dress. 
Whew, and boy was it a day.
