Here are the cards that I made for my DDIL’s for Mother’s Day.


I am grateful for my daughters-in-law.  They are both such wonderful mothers and beautiful women inside and out.  My sons are so lucky to have found them.  I love them both with all my heart.

The flowers on both cards have been stamped twice.  After coloring the stamp directly with a marker, a flower was stamped.  Then I huffed* the stamp, turned it 90 to 180 degrees and stamped again.  Stamping a second time without applying more ink results in the second image being lighter and adds depth and dimension to the flower.


Because the stem on the flower was longer than I wanted, I only inked a portion of it before stamping.



These cards are a CASE of a RAK that I received a few years back from epiphany.  I loved her card!  It is such a timeless and beautiful design.  In fact this is the second time I have CASEd it.  On the first CASE, I added a background stamp to one of the large panels.


Both of my married sons live in the same city and this past week I flew south and visited with them.  It was so nice to see my sweet granddaughters.


Alivia has had a loose tooth.  While I was babysitting the twins one day it finally fell out!  She was so excited that there “wasn’t even any blood and it didn’t hurt at all”.  lol


I hope that all mothers and all those who mother have a wonderful day this Sunday.

*Huffing a stamp is when you breathe on a stamp to re-moisten the ink with your breath.

Football has been a pretty big part of the Roberts family. Our 16 year old has been playing since he was 6. DH does all the coaching videos for the high school varsity and I was the Sophomore class rep last year and now the Junior class rep on the Football Board for next year. We had our big Football Kickoff event last night. A lot of planning and work went into it. What was really the pits is that I have been sick this week… like really down with the flu. I couldn’t go. But that is the beauty about having a great Board and so many wonderful volunteers. My friend, Carmen, who is another football mom and total stamper at heart, made the coolest and biggest “card” ever for the membership signup table! Check it out!!


Isn’t this beautiful.. flashing lights and all the details. DH called me from the event and tried to tell me about it. I wanted so much to see it. So he brought it home. Carmen, we have got to get together and do some stampin’, girl!! This is fabulous!


And talk about fabulous… Kittie (yes, the Kittie aka Kittie747) sent me a card yesterday.


Oh my goodness. I plan to frame it. And I mean that seriously because it truly is a work of art. Thank you so so much Kittie. Not just for the card but for your sweet friendship and generous gift. 🙂

Again this week I haven’t had the mojo to create anything myself. This flu really knows how to do a girl in. (But I wouldn’t have wanted to post anything of mine next to a Kittie Kard anyway. *lol*)

Hope everyone has a wonderful and creative Friday.
