A Very Special Birthday Card!

I can't believe my oldest will be five years old tomorrow!  He has been waiting for this day all school year.  We have been planning his party since the beginning of the school year as well!  That's the only downfall to having a summer birthday - you get to watch all your classmates having their parties all year and you're the last one to have yours.  Well, Seth couldn't be more excited!  We had his Ninjago party yesterday - so much fun!  His actual birthday is tomorrow and here is the card I made especially for him!

Stampin' Up Wreath Workshop

Hello ladies!  I'm getting ready to conduct my first Stampin' Up workshop!  Being that I have two little ones now, I don't plan on doing many of these - maybe one every couple of months.  So, instead of focusing on cards, I plan on doing special projects for my workshops!  This wreath will be the first of my workshops.  I saw a beautiful wreath in the new Stampin' Up catalog that served as inspiration for this wreath.  I used SU's designer series paper that I purchased from the last Sale-A-Bration catalog, but we will be using several different designer series papers and will be learning to make at least three different types of flowers.  We will use the Fun Flowers Bigz die and the Beautiful Wings embosslit.  Looking forward to my first workshop and hope everyone enjoys it:)

NOTE:  OK, I cannot for the life of me figure out why this picture rotated to the side!  The picture is saved to my computer right side up - so, maybe someone can explain it to me - maybe something to do with blogger?!  Anyways, sorry for the sideways pic:)  Happy Tuesday everyone!

Mojo Monday Sketch 243

Well, here we are again with another Mojo Monday sketch!  I used this sketch to create another Father's Day card.  I think I finally have all my Father's Day cards made - woohoo!  We have lots planned for June - Father's Day, mine and my husband's 12th anniversary, our son's 5th birthday and our youngest's Baptism - so I need to get crackin' making LOTS of cards! 

This card is made using patterned paper from October Afternoon.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  I just love this paper and have been saving it up to scrap our summer vacation from last summer (which I have not gotten around too!).  Hopefully I'll get some of that scrapbook done THIS summer and posted here, so stay tuned.

I'm excited to have just received some of my NEW Stampin' Up items from the new catalog!  I'll be getting crafty soon, as time allows it - so look for some new SU creations! 

So the kiddos got out for summer this past Thursday!  Now just one more week at work myself, then it's summertime for me too - CAN'T WAIT!  Hope you enjoy my Mojo Monday card - have a great weekend everyone!
