Ready, Set, Brayer!

Hello and happy Monday! Are you ready to get this week rolling?! It is going to be a busy, full one for me! I have tons of stuff on my to do list every day this week! We have 3 doctor's visits scheduled and Fall soccer is starting this week, I still have 1 kiddo in gymnastics and I have a stamp club this Friday! WooHoo! If you would like to come and eat junk food with us and giggle and make cute stuff just let me know and I will be happy to save you a seat! :)

I spent some time playing with my brayer yesterday! Do you have one?! They are so much fun and it is just amazing the effects you can get from using one! I drug out lots and lots of colors and cracked the seal on my new stamp set Lovely As A Tree. I am probably the last demonstrator in all of the world to finally buy this set, but I did and I just love it! I cannot wait to play more with it! I used three different shades of blue, two of purple and two of pink to make this late afternoon sky. I used three shades of green trying to go for the hilly pasture grass. I masked the sun and stamped the image in Early Espresso. (all Stampin Up!) I used the new giant label punch and faux stitched around the edges in brown. I made this card for some very special people in my life to say thank you for always being there for me. I am a very lucky girl! :) Ok on the the card:

What do you think?! I was working on glossy white paper which was new to me! This was a really fun card to do!

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree
Paper: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Glossy White, Whisper White
Ink: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Almost Amethyst, Orchid Opulence, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso

I also wanted to share some photos we snapped this weekend with you. My oldest son was best man in a wedding for one of his buddies who also happened to be one of the young men that I watched grow up in my home school group for the last 8+ years! Gosh! They grow and fly so quickly! The wedding was very simple and very sweet. It was an outdoor wedding and since the temperature was 904 degrees everyone dressed super casual. My son was so handsome standing up there doing his best man thing! Here is a picture of the best man with three other gorgeous kids who also happen to be mine! Big grin!

Here is a shot of me with my children. I am so proud of all of them. :)

This one is of my handsome hubby and son.

I am so excited that you stopped by today! Be sure to come again soon because I have lots more to share with you! Have a great day and be sure to do something that makes you happy! :) I will be back soonest!
