celebrating 50

Happy Sunday to you all! It's been one snowy 2014 so far! I've never had so many "work from home" days in the 25 years I've been with the company I work for. They're big on 'safety first' so thanks to that motto, I can stay at home and fire up the laptop and not have to deal with the road conditions.
My snow blower has been used more this winter than  the whole 3 years I've had it!

My family and I celebrated a milestone birthday last night. One of my younger sister's turned the big 50 today. Below is the card I made for her.

Pattern paper and journaling card is from Echo Park's "Sister" line. I jazzed it up by adding colored gems to the center of the flowers on the journaling card, along with some rose trim found in my stash. I adhered the journaling card and rose trim to some Stampin Up cardstock.
The month of January I was pretty much snowed in. Don't get me wrong, I love long as I don't have to drive in it! So to past the time away, I spent a lot of time cleaning and organizing the craft room once again. My sister had done the same thing to her craft space and was going to get rid of a lot of 'stuff' she wouldn't be using so of course, I took it all. One of the paper line's was by Bo Bunny - "Little Miss". Here are a few cards I made from that line.

Pattern paper and sticker is Bo Bunny. Doily is from Wilton, die cut flowers and felt are from Papertrey Ink. I punched the leaves from a Stampin Up punch and added pink pearl gems to the centers of the flowers.
Same Bo Bunny paper and journaling card, Wilton doily, ribbon from Stampin Up.  There is a couple more cards I made but I'll wait to post them next time. One of them I made for my daughter who is celebrating a birthday next Sunday! Until then....
Have a great week ahead.

  1. All these cards are so pretty, Nancy, and a breath of spring in the middle of winter. I am enjoying this winter so much as I love snow (not driving in it, though). I have a SIL who gives me some crafting items she no longer uses at times and it's like Christmas throughout the year!
