FWF - Celebrating the big 60

I made this person for an upcoming birthday in the family, this person was like my second mother growing up and she is having a big birthday.  Its a take on another card I made but after I made the frist one I thought of ways to make it better and instead of flowers I used a fan (my new favorite so watch for a tutorial coming soon, measurements included) and I used my favorite sentiment.

Supplies used: Spellbinders Floral Doiley Motifs, Floral Doiley Accents, Bracket Basics, Lacey Circles, Unity Stamp Everything Wonderful Sentiment Kit, DCWV Baby Girl Stack, Twine

Sigh it's almost back to school time

Where does the time go, in three short weeks my son will be starting junior kindegarten.  It's such a bittersweet momment and since I always send a card for the first day I have to make two this year.  I decided to use the DCWV sketch challenge as my starting point and used the Be Mine stack.  I recently made a mini albm in this and had some large scrap pieces handy.  I also made another for my daughter and made them the same to keep it simple plus this sketch was a lot of fun.

Here is the sketch:
Here is the card for my daughter:

Here is the card for my son:

Purple and Green CC Challenge

I made this card for the latest challenge at CropChocolate. the challenge was to make something using purple and green.  My daughter loves the color purple so I have tons of it and decided to make it my main color with some green accents.  I love this stamp from Unity and couldn't wait to use it.  Here is the easel card I made:
