So as I promised here are the cards we did at our card night! Lianne thank you so much for for these ideas and all your great cards....Her blog is www.stampchatter.typepad.com . She has great ideas an is a really great demonstrator. Ok so you all know my fave is the wood like card and I think Michelle is so there with me. I think Kathy's fave is the fresh cut card. but we all know she is the flowery girl of the bunch!! The sun has not appeared today yet and it is kind of nice to be cool when you wake up ...It has been soooo hot the last few days!! Can't complain so..... Yippie for sun......

So I was inspired with my 2 boys and 2 girls for the last couple of days and decided the they are so different kind of like Cowboys and Princess...So here you go. I happen to love both of these stamp sets and always think that my girls will love them too.....even though they will grow (or have grown) out of them... Just think I will have to through some pirates into the mix when the Little boys come and stay...Maybe that will be my next card ....

Yippie.. School is out!! I am looking forward to having some time with my girls....I though I needed to shake up my creativity a bit and so I took some of Kathy's stamp sets...Yes she knows! I had to sign my life for them but I did get them out of her house and into my hot little hands! I am just getting into my zone and to think I have gained 2 of my nephews for a couple of days. I hope they understand when I can't tear myself away from my desk!! Good thing their parents won't look here till they get back.

Ok, I told you I would show you the cards we made for Hailey ....Now, I said before that any occasions that we make cards sometimes becomes a bit more about that card....no exception here however..... the last dinner we had with friends (Mikes Birthday) we all had our cards out and were showing them off ... one of our closest friends ( no names you know who your are) didn't bring a card. I have to say that they are generally a No Card family and this is been for years and years. I think we might have put the pressure on a bit for them to start making cards so they could show off like we do because..... for Hailey's Birthday this family stepped it up!! Oh ya I think they are going to come to all our parties just so they can bring a card!!! I loved it so much I told them I was going to blog it!! So here are the pics enjoy ...Again no names....Thanks
I will tell you Kathy did the dog and that soooo cute Mermaid....love it love it love it..
I will take credit for the butterfly.....
and the so cute purses are Doreen's ....Love them...I don't know if you can see the little jewels on them but it just adds that little something!!!

I am loving the punch....I know I have had them forever and some longer that that....so I will be working with those for a bit ( be nice ) some might not work out.......
Ok so here are the ones that I made for my Daddy and my girls Daddy!! They made him a gift and a card but I can't see it yet...very secret.....

Ok so my wonderful husband hates it when all the attention is on him .....It took a couple of weeks to get him to "OK" the birthday dinner. Well, I told him that it is not all about him it is more about the CARDS!!! and they are beauties! Ok you saw mine last week and here are the rest I made the Happy Birthday one for my sis-in -law to give to him . Michelle made the wallet...She is back in full force ....Kathy made the golf bag ( My fave stamp for all men!) I just love the rich colors! And my wonderful girls made the cute dad card ...I have taught them well...they used their Nana's supplies not mine!!!
