Adelynn sign

Sorry for my absence, The last 10 months has been insane. I’m feeling a lot of tensions but I’m trying to learn how to balance them all.

I had made the A and she liked it so much we finished her names.

 It turned out beautifully. So much that we have to do the other t2o girls.
Have a blessed day and be thankful for those around you.

Thank you 😊

Manly Monday Moustaches

I have a fun layout to share today that cracks me up. Here's a little back story for you; At our cottage my husband holds a weekend event called ⛰ Mountain Main Jr. Plus ➕ where the sons or daughters and their dads (No moms or wives allowed) come up for some fun and shenanigans.

 For this Mountain 🏔 Man, he bought them all stick-on mustaches  that everyone had to wear for the whole weekend. I always make them get a group picture with and it looks like they're having fun. I'm just glad everyone plays along and there's no whining.

All the patterned paper is by Die Cuts With s View and I cut out the title with my Cricut with the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes cartridge in Cricut Craft Room where I welded the letters together.

Thanks for looking. 👓.

Lighthouse ATC

Here  is another ATC that I made with a piece of fabric. After I ironed the lighthouse image onto white card stock I added a vellum sentiment.  It was easiest to hide the adhesive by wrapping the vellum around to the back of the card. I finished by rounding the corners.

The stamps range from Deep Red stamps (Champagne bubbles) to Hero Arts ( Love flower and sentiment) and  rest of the flowers are by Stampin Up.
