some stuff...

My mom is coming into town this week (from Pa) and my boys havent seen her since november and I am terrible about sending pictures so I thought I would make her a little book to take home with her. Its nothing big, but quick, easy, and cute. Instead of having all the pictures cut, you can add journaling or embellishments or something, but i thought maybe she would like more pictures to show off to everyone. When its all put together (folded up) it is a 4x4 square. Then when you open it, You can see all the pictures, journaling, etc.

Here is one of the other cards we will be making at my class on the 30th with the for father stamp set. I wasnt real sure if I liked it after I got it all together, but it has definately grown on me. It has such a country feel and the colors are kind of uplifting. Its completely different than the other 3 cards we will be making whcih use browns as a base color. This one uses real red, river rock, western sky dsp, not quite navy, and very vanilla cardstock. I used the ticket punch on the corners and then put vintage brads on the not quite navy where the corners are missing. It was looking awefully plain so I put some bashful blue grossgrain ribbon across it which helped to break up the stripes a bit. I used my stampin pastels and blender pens to color in the stamped image.
