Thank You Cards

Hi everyone!  Just a quick post to share a couple cards I made for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2010 contest.  The top 20 finalists will be announced on Friday and there are so many amazing cards in the gallery.  If you are looking for a little inspiration be sure to check it out!

The first card using this yummy stamp from Hero Arts and the sentiment is from this set. I also used some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and this fabulous EK Success border punch.



And for this next card I used lots of Hero Arts stamps as well as some Polka Dots from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the Bird Garden image with white ink on kraft cardstock and then filled it in with colored pencils.



And now for something non-stamping related...I just wanted to share what I got for Mother's Day.  I've been wanting one these Vintage Pearl necklaces for quite some time.  I love the handmade one-of-a-kind feel it has.  They have so many adorable designs to choose from, but I chose this one with the initial of each of my kiddos.
 



My little boy, Gage, turns two on Friday, so I've been busy getting things ready for his party on Saturday.  Since two of the kids are napping now, I suppose I better get off this computer and be a little more productive. ;)

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Kelly
