Hello! I hope that you are having a beautiful summer's day! We sure are! It's been an amazing start to summer with hot hot weather! I wanted to pop in and share another card set, this time one that I made for Ariel's teacher! As I mentioned when I shared my first of the teacher's card sets, I didn't have much time and was working at a fast pace! I usually find myself thinking and thinking about card sets until I have it all perfected in my head! With this one I had a rough idea and I told myself that I don't have time to think I just have to do! That said I am still pretty happy with this set!
It's not easy to take pictures of card sets! Much easier in the summer though! Can't decide which way is better...
I started by stamping the envelope background with vintage photo TH distress ink onto all the kraft cards. Than I sorted through my Hello Luscious patterned paper by Basic Grey to find some scraps to work with! I than cut and punched them. Than I stamped with versamark the branch from the Luscious Patterned Flowers set by HA and embossed in citron powder. I stamped and embossed all the flowers on a separate kraft cardstock and cut out and adhered with a foam square. Stamped the sentiments. I added all the pearls while at a play date! Here's how I wrapped it all up:
Yesterday I took the kids strawberry picking! My mom came along too. We were both able to get 2 baskets (like a 4 litre pail) before Carter had enough! :> I love where we go, it's an hour drive and yes there is a few places closer but this place has a free animal petting farm, a fun maze and a very rustic playground! I think this was our fourth year going there! We all had such a blast! Even Carter who is scared of dogs loved the animals! He was so cute petting and chasing some! He kept jumping for joy! I also taped them and Chad loved seeing it! I hadn't noticed he was jumping and running until we watched the video! Ariel loved it too, she loves animals!
Sitting on the tractor after picking to go back...
I love Carter's face! He's on top of the maze!
Looking at these photo's make me want to go back! :> My kids have been loving the strawberries more than any other year! I had been planning on making jam but I don't think there will be any left to make it! And that's okay, the freshly picked berries are soo good! I was so looking forward to making my strawberry banana muffins with freshly picked berries and I did today. They are soo good BUT I think they are also really good with store bought and really that's good because I can't always get fresh!
I wanted to mention that I am so thankful for all your sweet comments. I love sharing my creations with you! And I love sharing about my family life. I appreciate that you stop by and leave me comments that I know you did! I am finding it difficult to keep up with everyone. I am finding that after days full of summer fun I am sooo tired at the end of the day and I just don't have the energy to be online! But I want to let you know I am trying. I get so inspired by all of you! :> I hope that you are enjoying summer too! I wish it was longer! :>
