Cards for my Mom

My Mom recently asked me to make her a collection of cards for Birthdays and Thank You's. Here are a few of the cards I made to send her way!

I found some great tips for taking pictures over at Kristina's Blog and I really think my pictures look better!
Thanks for Stopping By,

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14

Hello all,
I am so very excited to share with you my Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14 card! I received my PTI order on Monday and have been experimenting with my new stamp set (On My Couch)! This is my first PTI stamp set and I am in love! They are so wonderful and can't wait to buy another set! I have a few more projects with this stamp set on my previous post so go check it out! This stamp set is amazing!
Thanks for stopping by,
P.S. I used left over scraps for this card and it just happened to work! I love it when that happens!

Paper: All Papertrey cardstock
Ink : Staz On Black, Papertrey Vintage cream

Hello All! I am so excited! I just got my Papertrey order yesterday and I have been working with my stuff every spare minute! I bought my first pti stamp set, "On my couch" and I love them! They work so good and feel so expensive (very thick)! So today I am posting some pictures of what I have finished! Enjoy!

Well, it seems like Jared and I have been really busy for the past month, working on the addition to our house (Jared does that) and then some family things going on! So I am very excited to have the time to do some blog challenges! It seems like as a sahm I need this time to do something I enjoy or I will go crazy!
Anyway, I really enjoy the sweet sunday sketches ! When I sat down to work on this sketch I had so many paper combinations I didn't know what to do. I ended up using We R Memory Keepers pattern paper, with American Craft cardstock, along with buttons from basic grey's wisteria collection.
I am not very happy with this picture and have been brainstorming ideas to take better pictures. I have a small Samsung camera that my sweet husband gave me for Christmas. It doesn't seem to work very well for taking pictures of small things, but for people it works great. So if you have any ideas or tips on working with a smaller digital camera let me know!
