Bride to Be!

Here is the card for my sister, Adrianne!  Her bridal shower was this past weekend and we had a ball getting ready for it.  My other sisters, Andrea, Chris, Connie and I gave Adrianne her shower at Chris' house in Topsham, Maine.  We got a lot of our ideas from pinterest! (where else?) I made this teddy from a template that I found on pinterest.  I added some lace and a bow with some pearls.  The paper is from DSW which I got from Michael's.  The background paper is Graphic 45.

Inside the card!
Here are some pictures from the Adrianne's shower. I am sorry that the planning for this shower is over because it was so much fun making the different things for the shower.  The banners were made by Chris and we all made the bride/groom favors.  It won't be long before the big day on June 7th!  Happy Wedding Day Adrianne & Lenny!  Love you both!!
Mom & Adrianne!
Cupcake Wedding dress!
Thank you favors!

Another 60th Birthday!

A quick post for a card I made for another friend turning 60 years old on Sunday! She is a flight attendant with Delta Airlines so here is my card for her.  This card is a die from Sizzix.  The paper, I used, is from Graphic 45 called "Come Away With Me".  Love this paper, it is soooooo pretty! Punch art airplane was fun to make. All the punches for the plane was from SU.

This is the inside the card. I used SU's cupcake punch to make the clouds and then embossed them.  I hope she likes it.  Just love this paper!!  Happy Birthday Audrey! Enjoy!

Spring Stair Step Birthday!

In a couple of days, it will be my sister, Phillis' birthday!!  She will be 55, double nickels!!  I found this picture of her when it was her 17th or 18th birthday.  She is holding a cake in each hand.  The cakes were made by another sister, Andrea and they are Holly Hobby cakes!  I thought they were done professionally but Andrea told me that she made them.  Back then, they were very popular! Great job Andrea!!

This card is a stair step and I added a flap so I could put the picture in it.  Having a lot of fun with this type of stair step cards.  This is about the 3rd or 4th one I have made but this is the first one I made with a  flap. The directions for these cards are in a previous post.  I decorated the card with Die-namics, sizzix, Memory box and Nestabilities dies. Prima flowers were added with a MS butterfly punch.  The paper is from SEI.

Wanted to make the card springy with the flowers, leaves, butterflies and birds.  The birds are stickers.  So happy that here in the Northeast it has gotten so much warmer!! Yesterday it was 68 and today it will be the same!!    Finally Spring has Sprung!!

Here is the front of the card and when it is closed.  I love using the Memory butterfly die with the Prima Flowers!  and the paper is gorgeous!  Happy Birthday little sister, Phillis!!!

Birthday on Par!

Just a quick post for a birthday card for my 6th soon-to-be brother in law!   I haven't made a golf card in a while.  I always love making a themed birthday card.  I used Stampin up and graphic 45 paper.  Die-namics, Spellbinders, Sizzix dies were used as well as Stampin up punches.  I got this idea for a card from this card on pinterest. 

The sentiment was also from pinterest from another card I found. Love those metaphors!!  Happy Birthday Lenny!  I hope it's the best one yet!!
