Male thank you card

Hello everyone! Hope your having a great week. Is it me or does it seem like May is just flying Maybe its cause I am trying to get a project done that has to be done by June 1st. Nephew is graduating high school so been going through many old photos, you know the old 35 prints we used to all went Talk about going down memory lane, found some I had forgot about. :) So that has been what I have been up to. But I did want to take some time this week to share I card. A friend asked me to make a card for her, she was needing a male thank you card.

Mother's Day Cards

Happy Friday! Well as promised here is another post, I know shock right two post in one Life is getting back to normal it seems. I needed four Mother Day cards and with time being limited I made them all the same. Would like to have made each one different but I was really getting close to needing them to go out. Wanted to make something different than the normal card layouts I have been doing. So I thought I make a portrait card since had not made one in while. The base card was 5 inch wide by 6 inch long and I used kraft card stock. I cut the scallop circle on the cricut and well as the pattern paper circle. I was able to make two cards from each circle. And I used the real dial size feature for cutting them since I wanted the circles to layer at the top of each card.The half scallop circle is popped up with foam tape. Between the popped up layer and the pearls and gems I used on the prima flowers I was a little worried about them during the mailing process. I did add extra stamps in case, so fingers crossed they will get there and make it in one As normal the supplies I used will be listed at the bottom. Thanks for stopping in and looking. :)

Mother's Day Gift Box

Hello hope everyone is having a good May so far. Ours is going okay. Its been busy this past week and a half. Reason why I have not made a post yet. We had DH parents in town last week, they only stayed a week but I spent a few days getting the house ready. Had to convert the craft room to a guest I will say the fold up table did come in handy, all I did was fold it up and store it till they left. I lose my room while there here but no Anyway they left left this past weekend so Monday I got my room back and I spent Tuesday working on some Mother's Day cards. I will post those next but first I wanted to share this altered gift box.
I will be honest I made this a few weeks ago and was saving it for the Patches of Pink design team post. But Jalisa has decided to take a break from here blog being she just had her second child not long ago and I really do understand time is limited. I don't have kids so I can only imagine how hard it is to handle a baby and a small child to take care of. So for now she is going to be taking a break and I wont be making any more Design team post for Patches of Pink. I very much enjoyed the 5 months I got to work with all the great ladies and thank her for having me having me on her DT. So with that said I thought I share this anyways.

I got this box with the necklace I bought for my mom and I did not like it so I thought why not dress it I had seen this idea for making flowers on a video and thought how cute is that. So I had to try it. The flower is made from nothing but circle die cuts so you can use your die cut machine or dies and a old book. I used nest abilities circle dies I had. I covered the box and used tim holtz distress ink and glimmer mist. Also used the distress in and glimmer mist on the flower as well. Well thanks for looking and I will another post tomorrow. Since our company is gone and I have got caught up on things life is getting back to
