I normally don’t post on Sundays, but there are TWO great reasons I just had to say hi today… first, I want to wish my friends a Happy Mother’s Day….this is probably my FAVORITE holiday because of what it represents….and a BIG shout out to Taylor as this is her first Mommy’s day! How fun
My brother and his wife are passing through town on the way back home to the Atlanta area after hanging out in Chicago for a few days after their precious Hannah’s baptism last week (have I mentioned how in love I am with my niece??? Oh, how I adore her!), so it was fun to celebrate HER first mother’s day, too, with my adorable niece :) I’m looking forward to celebrating Mother’s day with my amazing mom, my kids, husband, and family. I hope you all have a GREAT day!
Anyway, as sweet as that baby is, I have something ‘sweet’ for you today as well using the cute “Fruity Friends” stamp set from Taylored Expressions and our MAY Key Ingredients! I’m actually up on the KEY INGREDIENTS BLOG today, too, so please stop by and say hello!
It’s “that” time again…yep- the “end of school year rush” to get teacher gifts, etc., together! I’ll be making card boxes for all 3 of my kids’ teacher’s this year and thought this Fruity Friends set is truly perfect for making cards with.
There’s a CUUUTE little added bonus this month in the Key Ingredients kit that I LOVE. In addition to the awesome ribbon, flowers, and buttons that come to beautifully embellish your projects, we also have these fun Wobble Springs which create a SUPER FUN 3D effect on your project:
Isn’t it super cute? I used one on each of my cards today to ‘pop’ up the fruits after coloring them with Copic Markers and really love the effect it gives! Here’s the watermelon card in a full view:
I am telling you- the possibilities are endless with the KEY INGREDIENTS this month! I really enjoyed making these and think the kids’ teachers will get a kick out of them-what do you think?
I sure do hope you’re enjoying our May Key Ingredients reveal this week, and that ALL who are celebrating Mommy’s day today are spoiled rotten with the “Key Ingredients” to mommyhood- LOVE. :) Be sure to check out THIS page to see ALL the fun coordinating products this month that are available in coordination with the May Key Ingredients and I’ll see you back here on Tuesday. Until then…
I just have to share my early Mommy’s Day present with you guys. I thought it was fitting since we know how much Taylor loves Cupcakes too- but check out what my hubby and boys surprised me with yesterday…holy sweetness, batman:
Isn’t it AMAZING? I’m bringing it over to Mother’s Day brunch at my Mom’s house…but took a ton of pictures of this gorgeous creation before it all gets gobbled up! Man… I love my boys!
