Find Joy & Fantastic

The Fantastic card I made for a friend to give away, I used paper from the 8x8 Rock Star paper pack and a Stampin Up Stamp. I just folded it in half and decorated that way.
The other one I made for my Grandma's 85th Birthday, I used some Amy Butler paper that I love, some other paper I have laying around, A Prima flower and a Stampin Up stamp.
My favorite Ink that I use all of the time is Adirondack by Ranger and the color is Espresso, it's a die ink( I think) but I use it all of the time instead of a harsh black. I really like how it looks and it drys quickly. I'm not sure if you can watercolor on it though.

American Swedish Institute

My daughter & I went to the American Swedish Institute the other day because we got passes for free from the library & we kept hearing how fun it was. I wouldn't say it is set up for kids but they might enjoy looking at the queens dresses & such. In the basement they did have a place to get snacks and they had a kids area where they could dress up and a book nook.

Grad Card Photos

We had a couple of graduation parties that we were invited to so I tried to make some male style graduation cards.

One of them was for a rocker cousin I have & the other one was for a friend of my husbands. I found a pattern to make a "fry box" so I thought that would be cool to wrap some chocolates and make a bag topper to match. It looked pretty good when it was done. I hope they didn't just throw it away after they opened it LOL!
