Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. This week we are all featuring animals on our projects. I chose the Beautiful Peacock and of course, featured a peacock for my animal:

I chose to stamp my peacock with her train of feathers not showing. I must confess that I had to look up the term for the display of feathers and it is indeed called a train. This is also something a peacock does during mating season. I did not know that either. So there's a lesson for today!

I also added a few of the Petal Passion Embellishments that I thought looked kind of neat with the swirly background that I created:

Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Calypso Coral 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Daffodil Delight Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base even with the left edge.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Repeatedly stamp the swirly images using Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Inks. Glue to card front even with the left edge.
  • Layer #4: Glue a Delicate Lace Doily to the center of the card front.
  • Layer #5: Calypso Coral Cardstock cut with the Layering Circles Dies, 2-1/2". Glue to the center of the doily.
  • Layer #6: Whisper White Cardstock cut with the Layering Circles Dies, 2-1/4". Cut once and turn the die enough to cut into the scallop edges a 2nd time. This will create pointy edges. Stamp the peacock and sentiment using Calypso Coral Ink. Glue to the center of Layer #5 using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Embellish: Add 3 of the embellishments in place as shown in the photo with Glue Dots.
Supplies Used:
  • Stamps: Beautiful Peacock
  • Inks: Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight
  • Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
  • Accessories: Petal Passion Embellishments, Delicate Lace Doilies
  • Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Glue Dots

My Grammy Baby Shower Thank You Cards!

Good Morning All. I want to start out my post with a Happy 1st Anniversary in Heaven to my Dad. I miss my Dad so much. To think back to a year ago when we spent a whole week, my Dad's last week on this earth, at a hospital over 4 hours away from home and what he went through breaks my heart. But I know he is in a much better place and he has helped me so much this past year. I talk to him very often and when I need help with something, he comes through for me. I know today will be hard for my Mom but she has done so well. Thank goodness for her neighbors at the apartment complex she lives in. They all hang out together quite often. I am again going to remind readers that smoke, to please consider giving it up. Especially if you are young. My Dad was a smoker and a auto/diesel mechanic on top of that, so he had two strikes against him for the terrible disease of COPD.

A few weeks ago, something really cute happened to me. Well, first of all, I need to mention that I am going to be a Grammy to baby #2 in March. I can't wait for baby Kylee to arrive. If my daughter Jessica doesn't go into labor by March 19th, due to the size of the baby, she is going to be induced. So what happened to me was that I was in the middle of teaching for one of my monthly clubs and the girls interrupted my class with a Grammy Shower!

I guess these type of shower's have been around for quite some time but I had never heard of them...where have I been huh? Five of my club members gifted me with baby clothing, baby toys and books. Vicki had to leave for work so she didn't get in on our group photo below:

Present in the photo are Cyndee Randall and Gloria Powers in the front and Cynthia Milton, myself and Deb LaRosa in the back. Vicki Hagerman missing. The gifts were all so neat and thoughtful:

And these are the cards I received:

So now it was my turn to send out cards. A thank you card for each one of them for this special surprise they popped on me. I used the Moon Baby stamp set and colored with my Blends Markers:

I kept them simple with lots of white space. This image is perfect all in itself with the sentiment and a few stars added in the mix:

It didn't take me long to color as the Blends color so nicely. I even added some blue around the outside edges of the image and used the Color Lifter to soften the edges:


Thanks so much girls, I so appreciated all of the gifts and goodies we got to snack on and yes, it was a total surprise!
