Good Sunday morning! The sun is finally making an appearance today. It has been a wet week here in  Chicagoland. My sump pump has not stopped once - that's a good thing!

Here are a couple cards I made for Valentine's Day. For my grandson -

I wrapped a red gingham piece of ribbon around gray card stock and adhered it to a red card base.
Using an older Stampin Up stamp set called Have a Heart, I stamped the image on a white circle die cut and layered it onto a scallop circle die cut. Using water color pencils, I colored the images. I added Glossy Accents to the hearts to make them stand out. I added some heart stickers to the lower right hand corner of the card.

This next card I made for Aiden, my Godson -

I used pattern papers from Authentique. I cut out the XOXO using my Circuit. The heart trim is punched from black card stock. I mounted the Bingo card onto black card stock and tucked in the Hugs and Kisses tag behind it.  

That is it for today. I am working on a different style album using Authentique's Fabulous paper line.                                                                                                 Hopefully it will be finished by next Sunday for me to share. Enjoy your week ahead -

About A Boy

Are you getting clobbered with snow in your area? Since Thursday night, we have gotten well over a foot of snow! My son came over with his snow blower Friday morning, I shoveled another 6 inches Friday night, and another 3 inches this morning. I'm sure all the kids are loving it as all the local schools were closed on Friday!
I finished the baby boy pocket mini album I have worked on since January. So grab a cup of something as there are quite a few photos (I really need to learn how to video this stuff!) The paper line is by Photoplay called About A Boy. All cardstock is from Stampin Up.

I made photo booklets using all the cut aparts  in this paper line.

 5.5 x 5.5 photo mats in the side pockets.

I deleted about 6-8 pictures as they were turned sideways. I'm still getting acclimated to the IMac.

Last weekend my grandson attended his very first Disney On Ice show. I adore this picture my DIL took of him during the show -
And when he started to get antsy - he was dancing in the aisle!

That is it from me. Enjoy the week ahead -
