Yup!  It’s almost June, and the weddings are beginning!  This card is for my nephew who will tie the knot in a couple of weeks.

I like to try and match the card to the wedding invitation.  No exception this time.

Today’s cards use the adorable “Cheerful Critters” set by Stampin’ Up.

Had some fun playing with the sign that bear is holding up.

The “uncle” sentiment is held onto the main panel with a mini screw brad.  It can be rotated to reveal the happy birthday wish underneath.

Not sure if it was the critters that sold me on this set or this next sentiment.  Maybe a little bit of both.

These faces and expressions just make me smile.

On this last card I cut the sign off and decided that bear could hold up a banner instead.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Both the bear and the banner were fussy cut and adhered to a large die cut blossom which has been popped up on foam tape.

Here is my grandson Lincoln’s birthday card this year.  Grands grow up so fast… especially when they live far away, and you don’t get to see them very often.

He loves Loves LOVES trucks so thought a bright red firetruck might catch his eye for a second.  Stickles on the truck’s top light does catch the light now and then.

It’s time to start making those cards for the special dads in our lives.

This sage old moose is colored with Copics.  I drew some additional grasses along the bottom to extend the image further across the card.

In the past I have created similar Mother’s Day cards for my mother-in-law and my 2 daughters-in-law.  The only difference in the cards would usually be in the color(s) used.  This year, however, they use different images and are all unique… made special for each woman.  The cards being shared today are for my daughters-in-law.  I love both of them so much and am so grateful for the wonderful mothers that they are to my precious grandchildren.

The image panel has been popped up on foam tape and some scalloped lace tucked under the bottom edge.

Sister Act Card Challenge #104:  “Anything Goes”

Craftyhazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge: “May 2015”

Had fun with this little flower image by stamping it twice in each “color.”  The first time the image was completely inked with the lighter tone and then stamped. Then, using a marker, a slightly darker tone was applied on just part of the image and stamped over the lighter tone.
