Confirmation card

Here is a card I made for my son's best friend.  I used The Greeting Farm stamp and colored it (ages ago) in grey tones.  Base is Basic Black with layers of Whisper White and more Basic Black.  I used some Heidi Swapp spritz in Translucent and Silver Smooch Spritz.  I had some odds and ends to add on and placed the fussy cut image on a spring to give it some movement.  Thanks for looking!  April

Goodbye Hugs

Last month, we moved from Ohio to Wisconsin.  The hardest part was taking the kids from the people and schools they have grown to love over the last five years.  My youngest has special needs and we are particularly close with his teachers and assistants so I wanted a special goodbye for them.  I kinda feel like I was shorting them, but most of my craft supplies were packed and I was single-parenting for the better part of six weeks, so I was not at my most creative. 
I found these adorable hugging hearts on clearance at Ikea and grabbed some Hershey's Hugs, treat bags, chalkboard tags, and some baker's twine to make these.  I used a chalk marker to write "A Hug from Matt" and tied it all together.  The teachers were in tears and tried so hard to make it a great day for him.  We miss them so much and they have been great with helping his new teachers acclimate him to his new school routine.  Thanks for looking!  April

Brilliant Birthday

This is an alternative card for Stampin Up's My Paper Pumpkin set from July 2016.  I saw a similar card on Pinterest and decided to recreate it.
The base is Whisper White and I used Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp the jar from CTMH Little Treasures and the sentiment from the Paper Pumpkin set.  The jewels are stamped in Emerald Envy, Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Blackberry Bliss.  I added a little bling to the sentiment but kept it flat for easy mailing.
Thanks for looking!  April
