WE finished putting up these retro silhouette's, I love them just something special about these ladies. Tra did an awesome job putting them on vinyl and purchasing some dollar store frames painting them black. The ladies are put directly on the wall and I removed the backing and the glass from the frames and put them up with my new favorite thing command for pictures!

Here are the cards I did today, one is for a friend for her birthday and the other clearly for either Mom or Kevin's Mom for Mother's day. Paper crafting and stamping changes all the time and what I am seeing more and more are crafters are using more paper punches. The bird and the leaf is one punch. The nest on the Mother card is a circle punched and then I cut the stem of the leaf in different neutral and browns and overlapped them to get the look of a nest. Saw this on a website and thought I would try it.
I just need to get some inspiration to get into the craft room, it can be very theraputic to forget everything else I need to do and just dive in. Once I am doing something I lose all track of time!


We had a real nice day yesterday, Engel's came over for dinner. I guess it was all tasty, at least the comments I received were favorable! The one that makes me the happiest is to watch Jess, she truly enjoys her meals and thanks you all the way through! Everyone would think they were a master chef if they got to cook for her!
We played cards and of course that is always fun! I won which is a very rare occurence but always a welcome one!

I have promised myself to take time and get back into the craft room from this time forward. I have made two cards today, very similar in style I will post these next. :)
