Hey!! We are getting ready to celebrate Family Night! My son is home from Ponca Bible Camp in Arkansas after a week and we are fixing a Papa Murphy's feast!

Before our festivities begin, I'd like to share a card I've made based on the inspiration challenge on the Avery Elle blog!

Bravo 1.5

I loved the inspiration photo: the colors, the arrows, etc.  I pulled the colors from the arrows and used that as a starting point to choose the papers to match.  Then, I stamped a row of arrows in the gap on the left.  There is a yellow arrow in the middle but I had a hard time capturing it in the photo.  The top panel is popped up a little higher than the right panel for a little added fun.  

I'm not sure if this photo helps you see any of the detail better or not...

Here is the inspiration photo that this card is based on.

You still have time to play along!  Visit the July AEI♥U Challenge to play!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Off to eat some pizza and play some family games...I hear a little Wii action might be on the agenda tonight.  Wish me luck!

Happy Birthday Boy

Hey!!  I am finally back with another card to share!! This has been a strange week.  It is my last week at home before I have to go back to work (as an elementary school secretary).  I had a lot of things planned but then I got sick.  YUCK!  Not how I hoped to spend this week!

So, this evening I was finally feeling well enough to put together a card! YEA!!

HBday Airplane

I love this new die by PTI!  There are so many fun ways to use it and tonight after I cut those patterned strips with it, it just reminded me of a runway.  In this Echo Park paper kit, this airplane sticker was included and it just all worked so well together!

I based my card on the 250th Sketch over at The Clean & Simple blog!

I turned the sketch on its side.

I am also entering this in the Seize the Birthday challenge Anything Goes!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you are all having a terrific week!

Hey!!  Wow!  Has this ever been a busy week!! I'm feeling pretty tired and ready to relax during this last week before I have to go back to work for the school year.  I'm not quite ready for work to start back up yet, this summer has flown by!

I wanted to share a card I made for the Curtain Call Challenge this week.  The theme was nautical. I don't have any nautical stamps yet that I could think of so I had to go a different direction for this theme.

Nautical God Bless

I used nautical inspired colors, some nautical paper and used the chevrons to mimic waves (do you see the line of fish that are swimming in the "water".  The sentiment is from Verve and I just love the font and arrangement of the words on it!

There is still time to play along if you'd like to!  

Thanks for stopping by!
