i love this monday

what you say?
"you love this monday????"
i do!
it's starting out quite good actually.
this past saturday we picked up our daughter ashley from the airport.
she'll be with us for about a month.

i also got some scrappy time in too.
i got to do 2 cards.
a birthday one, a father's day one.

here they are....

for a special boy thousands of miles away...

materials:  american crafts, fiskars, ek success, making memories, ranger (stickles), aleene's, therm o web, uniball signo

the deetz on this one:

and for a special dad who is also thousands of miles away:

mateials:  cosmo cricket, american crafts, ek success, amm kit, making memories, uniball signo

and of course you gotta check out the close-ups:

i can never do cards without deckin' out the inside of them too.
i love doing tone-on-tone punched shapes on the inside.
it gives it interest, texture w/o being overly decked out on the inside.
for me, that's what makes cardmaking fun.
and of course, i got my siggie on the back with 2 different size butterfly punch shapes attached too.
i also love to doodle with my white uniball signo pen.
i love that pen!
it's one of fave tools to use when scrappin'.
circles are also my scrap fetish, and will always be.
i just think circles add that fun flare to my projects.
giggle, giggle.

oh...sheez...this is one card i forgot to post this thank you card that i did awhile back..

materials:  my mind's eye, we r memorykeepers, ek success, martha stewart, rubberstampede

and just wanted to share some b&w photo love of this past saturday.
especially w/ ashley first meeting her baby sis selene for the first time.

i gotta take a family photo of all of us 4 together,
especially before my lil baby boo leaves for WA for the rest of the summer.
gotta do it.

have a lovely lovely monday!
