OCC Sweet Pea, C4C38 Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday evening!!!

So happy to hear you all liked the flip-flops we made....and the photo of my sweet baby!!! I totally forgot to mention in my post below *how* I added the flowers.....sorry guys..LOL!!! Here is what I did...each center of the flowers have brads. Where the flip-flops come together on top I punched a hole with the Crop-a-Dile and placed the brads right through. I covered the sharp edges on the bottom with another piece of felt, so the kids don't get hurt!!!  I adhered the felt piece with some super sticky Score-Tape...voila...that's it!!!

I had a little stampin' time last night as my kids are super tired from all the action this week...I think they are really ready for their summer break!!! So am I.....Jerry and I are looking forward sleeping in a bit longer :).

My first card is for the OCC Sketch hosted by my sweet friend Loretta.



I used the beautiful Sweet Pea Set from There She Goes. The Kraft panels were embossed with the Dotted Cuttlebug Folder. The Design Paper is from a retired Collection called Vita Bella. At the bottom I added a border...the punch is from the Martha Stewart Collection. Of course I had to add my fabbo Silver Pearls :) !!! At last I bedazzled the main image with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

*****************************************

My second card is for the C4C38 Sketch hosted by my sweet friend Cindy.


It's pretty straight forward....I used the sentiment from the PTI Set Communique Curves Sentiment Set and the Fillable Frames #4 Set. I also used the coordinating Fillable Frame Die. The Design Paper is from the BasicGrey Kioshi Collection. At last I added the matching Prima Flower and the Silver Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by tonight!!! Enjoy the rest of your evening!!! Hugs ~S~
