Paper Smooches challenge- May #1

Hello, friends:}

Today I'm sharing a project for the Paper Smooches "FLOWERS" challenge for May.
Picture: Credit HERE 


I found THIS graphic and wanted to recreate it for my project today. I needed help so I called in some backup from Trav and my Mother-In-Law, Lori (she's visiting this weekend from South Carolina!)! Trav helped me figure out which flower stamps I could use, and he even fussy cut some of the flowers! 😊 I think this card turned out perfectly--- I do wish I would have stamped the sentiment "MOM" a bit lower, but my original idea was to create a small stitch line under it... Trav vetoed that idea! LOL! I used the following PS stamps/dies: Precious MomBlossoming Budsand Botanicals 3.   

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and play along:)

I've created a fun graduation cap shaped card using the NEW Grad Cap Card die set

I wanted to go a different route than a regular cap... so I searched for what grads are doing these days with their caps and lots of them are decorating them (this is *NEW* to me! We didn't do anything crazy at our graduation! Not in high school or college! And as a side note... I only graduated from those two! I never had a graduation ceremony for kindergarten or 5th grade/etc! So funny! LOL!)! 
I decided to go with an adventure theme for the cap. I used my favorite Crate Paper StoryTeller papers {I just love these!} with the cork as the bottom and a map as the top. I used several other PS stamps including the NEW New Beginnings set. 

Be sure to stop by the PS blog for details about this blog hop and giveaway! And don't forget to leave some love on the DT's blogs:) 


That's it for me today- THANK YOU so much for stopping by! Be blessed!
