Three things I wanted to share today - a favorite picture of the week and two more cards.
I love these people. They are so much fun to spend time with unless you would ask for a cooperation for the picture. Yeah, I know I interrupted their game but still... as I was asking for some smiles on the other side of the lens my sister told everyone to make very boring and sad faces. And guess who they've chosen to listen too? Of course! After that they bursted in laughter and "some" of them even fell on the ground... Perfect. Yes, I remind myself once again - that's just the way we are. Got to add it to my PL album.
And now those two cards I promised. First one was for Mom. I didn't want to write "Happy Mother's Day" because it could be used for Mom's birthday. Anka mentioned doilies and how they reminded her of her grandmother. I started thinking what other way I could use them in, and then the idea of apron and ruffles came to me. I don't know about you, but I picture my Mom wearing apron all the time because we were blessed to have a Mom that cooked as homemade meals every day of our lives. Here is the card:
I covered inside of the card adding a little pocket for a Thank You gift card. Moms deserve that.
And then, I decided to make one card for the Father's Day (just realized I'm missing a letter on a card). I've chosen these manly colors with a soft touch of ribbon:
I realized that making cards actually is a lot of fun. There's kind of no pressure to be perfect, because there's no pictures involved and also they come out pretty fast compare to a whole 12x12 page with journaling. No, that doesn't mean I'm switching to cards. It's a fun alternative, depending on your time and your mood. Love all the choices scrapbooking gives you!
Have a few ideas cooking in my head. Hope to be back soon to share them!
