Family Ties


It’s a very special family weekend here at our house. We are celebrating my parent’s 40th Anniversary today! And a sweet new baby girl for my brother & SIL! I can’t even talk about it….I’d get all sappy on you, and some of you don’t like that…LOL. So, I’ll leave this here for you to look at while we spend some quality family time today. I don’t know what took me so long to use this Pretty Pattern backgrounder. I love the scale of the pattern…perfect for cards. 

  • Stamps: Pretty Pattern Backgrounder, Silhouette Blooms II (Kim Hughes Collection) – Cornish Heritage Farms

  • Cardstock: Ivory and Herbal Garden Light – Prism

  • Ink: Juniper Mist and Espresso Adirondack Dye, Blue China Distress – Ranger

  • Accs: Faux Pearls – Mark Richards, Ivory Ribbon – May Arts and Button – Paper Studio



Here’s our sweet Leap Day baby!
