The "sweet girl" is really two separate stamps of the $1 ones. I cut apart two different ones so I could form "sweet girl" from "sweetheart" and "party girl". Isn't the scalloped circle behind this so pretty? It's really from the corner adorner punch! I think it adds a royal touch.
And some terribly exciting news...I got a crop-a-dile for Christmas!!! It's awesome and I love it. Now, how did I survive without it? AND...I went shopping yesterday and got a Cuttlebug for 50% off at Michael's. I was so excited I felt like I had had 18 1/2 cups of espresso!!! I have all of the embossing folders on my wish list now! Spoiled rotten!

And here's one of the pics that might find its way
in the card.

This is from Julee's sight, Poetic Artistry.
The stamps are Impression Obsession. Aren't they just beautiful!?!
I used Cranberry Crisp ink and Apricot Appeal ink and paper. I'm loving this sketch!!!

I used Phyllis's Wizard to cut out the letters for JOY.
I used a $1 stamp for the sentiment...I really like it, even in its simplicity.
Then...I finally got a House Mouse stamp (well, actually three!!) I put the "If Friends were flowers, I'd pick you" sentiment on the inside of the card. Isn't he just the cutest little mouse? Maybe...if mice were REALLY this cute, I'd be tempted. Not!!! I also used the cutest paper punch to make the flower (a gift from the afore mentioned Phyllis...who doesn't have a blog yet). It is really five punches layered. I love it! And the scalloped circle is made with the SU slit punch. I had it on the top of my wish list and now I finally have it. My list keeps growing instead of diminishing though!! What's up with that?

The second card was made almost entirely out of patterned paper. I cut out the pieces of the trees and layered them, adding some dimension. The stamp is a $1 Michael's stamp. I really like how bright and cheery it is!

Edited to add "the football player" so people can see where the missing "tall one" is. I think he decided he was too old to participate and be silly. He's a jr. at the local high school. He plays second string tight end and free safety...and we're SO excited about basketball to get going (but we have to wait until football playoffs are done!)

It was incredible to be able to hang out with her and her family!
This second photo was of us being silly...and holding up the camera hoping we were both in the frame! I love it!
She asked me what my favorite one would be...and I chose "java bellas". Yep! Favorite. And she GAVE one to me!!!! I am beyond excited! I love everything...but I must say, I am just so excited about having a bella!!! Taunya, you are the best!!!

Then I've also been wanting to try a transparent card, so here's my attempt. I used gold embossing powder and I also used some foil for the hearts on the transparency and for some of the swirls on the front.

Here's a close up of Mom and Dad 50 years ago. I made about 35 or 40 of these invitations and I can tell you I'm so glad to be done. I still need to address the envelopes and get them to the post office. Yikes! Time is flying!
We did go to Seaside for a couple of days and enjoyed some time goofing off. We had fantastic weather, but it didn't help getting anything done. And I have over 1,000 blogs to catch up on now!!! You can guess what I'll be doing in my spare time!
