Make a Cake Birthday Wishes

Make a Cake is a two step stamp set that you can find in the 2013 Catalog is a wonderful image stamp set for all occasion use. Depending on which accent stamps you use to build your cake you can make birthday, wedding, congratulations, etc. The choice is up to you.

Here is a quick card I put together for one of my friend’s daughter who is turning 19. I wanted to give the card a softer spring time feel so I used the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper and pulled out the softer tones of Crisp Cantaloupe and Bermuda Bay.

Itty Bitty Banners Thank You

I needed some thank you cards and thought it would be fun to use my Build a Banner Simply Created Kit to make them since I love the polka dot stencil. And for some reason it just seemed natural to use the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set for the sentiment. I really like the soft look of this card and hope my friend does too when she receives it.

Moving Day

And now for a personal update – Yesterday we took a road trip and moved our daughter into her dorm room. It was a wet and very rainy day here in Georgia which made the process an interesting one. I’ve got to say that the Cat Crew was fantastic about unloading and hauling things in from the car! So It made things a lot easier especially with the rain – only we got soaked.

We spent a couple hours moving furniture around and trying different layouts  for the dorm room with Kaitlin before putting things together. I think she has a workable plan for now, but am sure it will change again, right?

Kaitlin College Move In

Not surprisingly it was a rather emotional goodbye on the curb for us, but hopefully not too embarrassing for Kaitlin. I’m afraid this major life change is going to take a bit for this mom to adapt to – I would imagine that isn’t abnormal, right? (Larry still thinks she’ll be coming home frequently for visits.)

Several nerve racking hours later we received the call that she had went to her audition and received her results, that she had been accepted into the music program. The last item she needed before beginning her college journey  – No surprise to us, but a huge relief to her

This too shall Pass….

Have you been saying this to yourself a lot lately? I know I have, after all I have a teenager daughter, so when I saw the stamp set From My Heart I knew it was one I wanted to put on my shopping list. I just think that the sentiments in the From My Heart stamp set are lovely and I love the images, so I was ticked when my friend Joann gave me this card during a swap last week.

The color combination she used of Summer Starfruit and Gumball green look very striking together, don’t you think?  You’ve got to love the way all of Stampin’ Up! products work together? I know I do – it was one of the things that drew me to Stampin’ Up!

Why not check out the From My Heart stamp set in our 2012-2013 Catalog – I think you’re going to like it as much as I do.
