As I cleaned out my craft room to make room for all my new catalog goodies, I decided to stop and make this cute card that reminds me of watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Does it remind you of anything?
I put the two layers of card stock on Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the card a little bit of 2-D effect. It’s just so cute I tell ya.
So, all I ask of you is to share this card with someone whom you feel needs a little bit of happy. Tell them that you thought of them and wanted to wish them a happy day. I would love that and it would make my day.

With my son graduating from high school in June I am flooded with his childhood memories and this card brings back one in particular.
How can vases with flowers remind me of my son’s childhood? Here’s the story…
When he was 7 years old he went with me to the grocery store with me and while we were shopping he asked me if he could go get something. He said it was right around the corner and begged to be right back.
He was gone for one minute and as he ran up to me I noticed he was hiding something behind his back. With a big cheesy grin on his face he said the following as he thrust forward a bouquet of flowers…
“Mom, if I had a job this is what I would buy you.” I had instant tears in my eyes because of his thoughtful nature. So, I bought them for him and he gave them to me when we got home.
With this sweet story in mind please view the video at the bottom of this post.
Lesson Learned: Stamp images like this vase stamp on your favorite designer series paper, snip each vase just slightly inside the lines and glue the cut out vase to the main image. It will surely add a whole new visual to the image itself.
A MUST SEE!
I’ve been a mom for 19 years and I know the requirements firsthand. In turn, my mom definitely has the world’s toughest job too! I have already started making her Mother’s Day gift… made of paper of course! =)
Please leave a comment below… tell me what you think of the video?
The whole purpose of this blog is to share my simple handmade cards with as many people as possible and I can’t do it without your help, so go on and share.
If you could pass post this post along to at least one friend
who you know has the world’s toughest job, I will be grateful!

This is NOT a last minute birthday card, but you know what!? When I made it last week, I whipped it out in no time at all. It’s always a very good idea to be able to pull a card sketch out of your back pocket for those “oh em gee” moments when you realized you need a card in a hurry.
Do you have a go to Designer Series Paper, stamp, or framelits for those uh oh moments?
Lesson Learned: I didn’t have the background Everything Eleanor stamped image in a framelit, but just I did happen to have the smaller framelit version (one of my favorites) and so all I did was trim it with my paper snips. They look perfect together and the White Stazon brings out the richness of the dark Elegant Eggplant cardstock… almost antique looking.
