Mother's Day card

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a lovely Easter celebrating the Resurrection!  My hubby and I had a fun-filled anniversary weekend at Disney World and now it's back to busy real life, which includes a busy May full of graduations and weddings in our family and extended family.  One thing is for sure-I will be taking LOTS of pictures!!!!!  Can't wait to get scrapbooking!

 We are looking ahead to get ready for the next holiday over at BBTB2 with a Mother's Day challenge.  This is the perfect opportunity to make something special for the mom in your life.  I've got my card all ready for my mom now, using a Miss Kate's Cuttables image that I cut out with my cricut Explore.  I loved the all the different colored flowers and butterflies on this image-it feels very fresh and springy!  I stamped the inside flowers with an old stamp from Stampin Up.  There's no such thing as too many flowers on a Mother's Day card, right?  Hope you will check out the design team projects over at BBTB2 and you can link your own project up over the next two weeks.

Gable Box with coffee/tea theme

Happy Monday!  I'm in a great mood because my hubby and I are going on a quick trip to Disney World this coming weekend for our 23rd wedding anniversary....with no kids!  It's also the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot, and I can't get enough of flowers after this long winter.  May is going to be a very busy month for us with tons of school activities and other family events.  So my hubby and I are going to go frolic with Mickey and eat Dole Whips to get ready while counting all our steps with our Fitbits!!!!!

Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to make a 3D box and you can choose your own theme.   I made a cute little box for a caffeine care kit (some tea bags, coffee beans, and a Starbucks card) for my kids, as finals weeks are coming up, so stress levels will be climbing and late nights will be spent studying.  I cut the gable box from the cricut Artiste cartridge and then stamped coffee and tea images on a strip of cardstock I put around it, plus I cut out and stamped the tag.  I used several coffee/tea themed photopolymer stamp sets, but the labels have worn off, so I've got no idea what companies they are from (note to self: write company name with a Sharpie for new sets going forward).  The design team over at the BBTB2 blog has some amazing 3D projects to see and you can link up a new cricut 3D box project there for the next two weeks.  Hope your week is a good one-I will report back on our Dole Whip fueled Mickey adventures next week!  I guarantee there will be some upcoming Disney themed scrapbook layouts!
