I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.....mine was full of creativity as I prepare for my Bourbonnais class this Friday evening. I'll be showing you the cards we'll be making throughout this week so stay tuned!
Tonight's post is one of the cards we made @ Grande Reserve Elementary School. I received a card like this at Convention last year & couldn't wait to reproduce it my way--this year's Convention theme--I kept my lines clean & the design simple. I do believe my style is clean but not always simple---I do LOVE the layers but my usual creations are not for beginners so I'm training myself LOL!!! We had a great time & I'm looking forward to the next class!
I'm off to get some more work done! I don't need to forget anything for Friday---I can't just drive around the corner anymore LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the evening!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

Good Morning Friends & Happy Saturday!
Today is May 5th & that means it's Crafty Gals Challenge time!!!!! Our hostess this month is Tracie & she challenged us to make a card to celebrate those who love us. We also had to make sure that our creations have at least 3 layers, used 2 embellishments & 1 sentiment.
I decided to make a card for my son Reginald who's in the Navy. I know my son loves me through our many talks & text messages and the fact that he still asks for advice in his life from the *mean woman* speaks volumes for our relationship! On the day of his graduation from Boot Camp, he thanked me & told me how much he loves me for raising him to be such a strong young man. I miss him terribly but it comforts me knowing that he's doing so well in school--he's top of his class--& that life is so great for him! He's following his dreams & he's happy.....what more could a Mom ask for?!! I love my son with all my heart & I wish him only the best in his life & future!!!
I kept his card simple...as simple as I can make a card LOL....& used masculine colors--whisper white, basic gray & lucky limeade along with the Sail Away stamp set. My finishing touches were the ribbon & bling....can't make a card without bling even a masculine one! Reggie always enjoys every card I send to him so I'm sure he's going to like this one too!
Please take the time to check out the rest of the Crafty Gals creations & leave them some love:
Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the weekend!
