Okay, I teared up and outright cried several times during the Royal Wedding. What love in their eyes for each other and how sweet the wedding was.  I can't believe I wasn't invited. Oh yeah, I don't have a fascinator. Thanks to Liz at  http://crafty-lizc.blogspot.com/ for the correct spelling.

Here is another birthday card. This is created by measuring and making a template for the squares and sponging in DI. Then I stamped the flowers and stems from Clearly Besotted and added a sentiment from PTI.  I added a few seqins and that was that. Be kind to one another and keep love alive.

I hope you had a wonderful Sunday with your loved ones. I got to spend time with my sons and we had a great time. They have such a good sense of humor and we laugh and laugh when we are together.

While I'm on an orange kick I thought I would show you this card. It is an older stamp from Endless Creations. They come to the Heirloom Craft Show every year but I didn't go this year. I love their stamps and they offer them in so many sizes. I just added some ribbon and sequins. The sentiment is from Wplus9, also an older set. I'm trying to spread the love around. Be kind to one another.

This was a busy week and I ate out four of the last five days! I also returned to rehab to work out two days a week. I feel like it helped me so much that I need to continue the exercise so I started back Thursday.

I finally got to make my cards for the 5th Twofer Card Challenge cards today. The butterflies are from a sheet of pattern paper and a die from Dare 2B Artzy . I love the pattern on them. The first card has just a slit for the butterfly to slide through as you open the card. I also added vellum under the butterfly to give movement. The second card is the same butterfly mounted inside my new Tattered Lace doily edge essential squares die that came yesterday. The sentiment is from a PTI  set called Script Sentiments. I sponged some Distress Inks for a sky background. Be kind to one another.

We have a beautiful day today and I am so happy. It has been warmer for the last week and I'm loving it. Finally. My granddaughter came last night and took me out to dinner since she can't be here on Mother's Day. I am so lucky to have such a great family.

 I have a new stamp set from Stampin Up that I made this butterfly with. It is called Watercolor Wings and is so pretty. Having the Misti or one of the stamping positioner tools really helps get this in the right place since it is a layered set.  Be kind to one another.

Another birthday card for May. SU tree and ribbon. The color is so fresh and pretty and it reminds me of spring so it's perfect for this time of year. This is a very simple card and quick to make. I love those kind! Be kind to one another.

Happy May Day. This year is flying by so fast! Thank you all for the nice comments about my family. They are pretty cool. My card today is from a SU set that we made in class. I love the colors and how the inside was finished off. It was a set that was used for Easter cards but I am using it as a birthday card. Be kind to one another.

Yesterday was junior prom for my granddaughter. Of course I went over to see her in her dress before they went out to eat. She did look beautiful (if I do say so myself!) and her date was so nice. I haven't heard from her yet today but I'm sure they had a good time. The first picture is her and her date, the second with her dad and the last one with her brother.  Be kind to one another.
