Beep Boop Birthday Card

I was really inspired by this card by Kelly using negative die cuts with Finley's ABCs. And since I just happened to need a birthday card for a 5 year-old boy I thought I'd make a robot themed card!

Quilted Sweater Weather Card

Happy Monday everyone!

I recently made a card for a sweet friend who was recovering from surgery. I wanted to make something really cheery, something to put a smile a her face, so I reached for my Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers! I'm so happy to have it featured on the Lawn Fawn blog today!

I had the idea to use the Stitched Rectangle Stackables die sets to create a quilted-look card. I used the Sweater Weather 6x6 paper because those primary colors just look so awesome together! It took some fiddling and trimming but the pieces all eventually fit together and the stitched detail is so fun!

I stamped, colored and die cut the cute little birds from Chit Chat and the coordinating dies, then I customized the Sweater Weather tree  to serve as a branch for the pair. The sentiment is also from Chit Chat.

Got some good news and not so good news to share. First the good - my grandson has booked his first job! He will be doing a 3 day shoot for a major retailer, yay! They booked him straight from his photos, no audition. He's such a cute little poser, how could they not. Also my DIL has written and produced a movie that will be shown at a local theater! I'll have more info on that soon.

I would appreciate your prayers for my health, I'm still dealing with some scary stuff and feeling like I'm the physician pass-around pack being referred to one after the other. Hoping for some answers soon. The good news so far is I don't need any more spine surgery; just PT and injections to control the pain.

Have a lovely day!
