Timeless Tuesday..birthday months

Well today at Timeless Tuesday you are to take your birth month and follow the info for it to create your card. Well my birthday is in May and it said to use silver along with color. My card base is navy blue and then I matted the silver and over laid that with some navy and white damask print from MME ( my mind's eye). I used one of those adorable pierced die cuts and then went to work with my small image of roses are red and violets are blue ...but I cheated and made my little rose pink cause I like that better for this card. My phrase is from Spring Bouquet set. To complete it all I added
some wee little stones in blue along with my sheer ribbon of navy. Now that phrase is just too sweet for words don't you think? A mother's love endures and endures and endures some more. My Mom was a prime example of that kind of love and I sure do miss her. I hope my kids feel that kind of love from me that I was ever so blessed to have from my dear Mom. And since Mother's Day is just around the corner this card is perfect.
Happy week fellow stampers. We actually had some snow flurries today...can you believe it! Just the craziest thing ever.

Timeless Tuesday...wedding

Timeless Tuesday's challenge is wedding something or other. Haven't been to a wedding in one heck of a long time. Probably go to more funerals then weddings at my ripe old age. Anyway...sigh! I love this new set called
Bees & Blossoms or at least I think that's the name. I decided to just do this in a denim blue ink and not be all fussy wussy. Just stamped and then made a lower panel using an embossing folder of stripes. Added a bit of ribbon and then for my inner side of the card, I put my congrats and one of the flowers. I like doing speedy cards that are easy to just do and be done with it.
Hope all is well with all of you. We had a day of snow yesterday but today the sun was out and the temp started to rise. I say Amen to that. Happy week to you all.

Timeless Tuesday....frame it

Well Timeless Tuesday says ...frame it. Well I don't really follow directions all the time and since I stink at cutting I just pretended that by using one of the sweet pierced frames I could make it work. I used an embossing folder that looks like honey-comb. It's a SU one and I really like the effect or is it affect? Stamped the Gerber Daisy image and colored with my faithful colored pencils. Cut out 2 little bees....hear them buzzing with excitement?? Then I slapped it all gently together and added a bow easy bow. Easy except for the cutting which I admit is not my strongest ability. Fini and that's that. Hope you all have a nice week. It's been cold here and we even had some snow. Where oh where is Spring time?

Timeless Tuesday...around the house

Well it's Timeless Tuesday Weds. for me but oh well at least I'm back to posting. This calls for something around the house so I said to myself.,..how about bleach??? Haven't done that in a long time so that's the way I went. Stamped an image from the beautiful pear set and went to work. I embossed the image in gold and then with a clean Q-tip ( not one used in my ears) I used some Clorox bleach and gently dabbed the kraft colored c.s. so as to remove the color. I then went back with another clean Q-tip and chalk colored my image but not too much. Wanted it to be rather mono toned with the greenish papers I used. Simple and easy to do. Cut out 2 dies from Spellbinders and used some pop-up dots and I'm fini.
Hope you are all off to a good week and enjoy the soon to be weekend. Happy times to you all.
