a few cards to share...

Been playing around with my Melissa Frances goodies the past few days when I have had a chance to sit down, mostly in the evenings after the girls go to bed! I love to scrap when it's quiet. How about you? When do you feel most creative? I'm definitely a night owl, love to stay up late.

This little card was created with Melissa Frances paper, lace, buttons, background stamp and a holiday rub on. Fabric brad (oh how I LOVE these!!!) is by K&Company and the snowflake tag is a to/from tag that I found at Target last Christmas! I found an awesome tutorial on making your OWN fabric brads, check it out! I'm seriously going to try that! I have made some quilts in the past and have a ton of fabric lying around.
I'm loving stars lately and created this card with 2 pages of a Prima album. Everything here is Melissa Frances except the ribbon and brads.
Inside:
To make this "Thanks a Bunch" card, I painted a chipboard flower circle by Scenic Route and then backed it with paper. The card base is just traced from the chipboard into a floral shape, making sure the fold doesn't get cut at the top.
Side view:
I received this cool chipboard album from Magistical Memories and turned it into a fun card with paper/paint. Love these colors! Paper, ribbon, sentiment stamp, sticker and star chipboard are all Melissa Frances as well from the Little Guy Kit.

Not too much else happening here lately! Kati is feeling better and we're gearing up for school to start soon. We went and bought the rest of Taylor's school supplies yesterday. However, she will be missing the first week of school due to a surgery she will have next week. I'm scared to death about it, but I know she will do great. She's such a trooper! She has had urinary reflux ever since she was a baby and hasn't outgrown it like we thought would happen, so the urologist says it's time to go in and surgically correct it. The good part is that she won't have to take medicine for it anymore or take those awful tests every year. (TRYing to think positive here!!) Send well wishes our way next week! Hugs, Danielle

Did I hear "Mini albums" in your last post? I'm so glad to see that you love them! I do too! :) Hey, my Hannah had reflux also and was on antibiotics for about 2 years (a dose every day) and she did have the surgery. She was fine. It was easy. Really. She still gets an occasional UTI but not like before. She's so much better. It's totally worth it. UTI's are stressful...and now I am paranoid...every time the girls have a stomach ache, back ache, fever with no cold symptoms etc..I take them in. Our doctor cringes...he's always like, "UTI, again..huh?" 70% of the time, I'm right. I know how to spot those things a mile away.!! Good Luck!!

Christine said...

I'm a night owl, too! I love being up alone and creating when everyone is tucked in and our home is quiet (except for my tunes playing *on low volume* on my ipod, that is! LOL!).

I adore all these MF projects, Dani! They're all so inspiring, and thanks for the link to the fabric brads! I have a friend who is looking for some, and I'm going to try to make some for her! :)

I will definitely have Taylor in my prayers and hope that you will find peace in knowing that she's in God's hands. I'm sure she'll be fine...take it from Katie! ;-D

Have a blessed week!
