Happy Couple

Our California friend's, the Churchills, son got married this past week.  Since they are originally from Maine the bride and groom came back and had a reception at their camp on Little Sebago Lake on Tuesday.  It was great to see them.  I saw this card on pinterest so I whipped up this card in the hurry.  I was glad to find this one since I could use my sizzix envelope die.  Just adorable!!!  Just like the bride and groom!!!  I used the large oval punch from SU for the window and the same for the tires.  I attached tiny bells to the back of the card.  The bride and groom stamp is a clear stamp that I got at Michael's and the roses and leaves are from an old SU stamp called "Wreath of Roses".  Congratulations Chris and Lauren!!! Have a great honeymoon in Bermuda!

Brimfield Trip

My good friend, Mary, has been trying for years to get me to go to Brimfield, Massachusetts to their flea market/antiques/yard sale that is in May, July and September every year.  She has been going for years and always tells me about the wonderful things that she finds there.  This year, my sisters and I have been going "junkin" on weekends to places here in Maine.  We decided to expand our territory to New England and Brimfield seemed like the next logical place to go.  Mary gave me things for my birthday that we would need for the trip. Some of the items she said was needed was ponchos, water bottle, measuring tape, magnifying glass, and hat.  All things were in the bag that she gave me and more!!! Check out my pictures!  It was the coolest gift. 

When we arrived at Brimfield  it was amazing.  More than 5,000 vendors are usually there but in July sometimes there are only 3,000 because of the heat.  It was hot!!  But there was plenty of vendors to see.  More pictures of Brimfield and the treasures that I found!!!  We are all headed there in September and I can't wait!!!

Handsome guy!

Punch art elf

I am a little behind on my promise to do a Christmas card every week.  Maybe I will change it to every month and see how that goes.  I saw this on The paper den website and thought it was adorable!  You will find it under November 2011 and then scroll down to November 21, 2011 entry.  She uses Stampin up punches.  She doesn't say which ones she uses so I guessed from the picture. I used the ornament punch for the head, bird punch for the ears, circle punches for the ball on the hat and nose, build a blossom punch for the hat, the trim is a circle punch and I had a punch for the hand which is punch bunch. Nestabilities for the package and spellbinders for the banner.  White is always hard to see but I used cuttlebug's EF poinsetta for the background and colored the berries with copics. Those ears make me laugh!!! Cute, cute, cute!!  Thanks for stopping by!

More Adoption Cards!

I was asked to make 2 adoption cards/welcome baby cards.  I haven't made a onsie card so I thought it would be cute to make one for this 4 month old baby boy and the second card is for a 1 year old girl. Boy, are they going to be busy!! The girl's card is a side step bureau card.  I got the idea from my sister, Chris. Check out her card here.

Thanks for stopping by! Love doing baby cards!!
