I am having a great visit with my parents this weekend. My mom and I went to a few yard sales yesterday and we also paid a visit to Hobby Lobby. Her favorite craft right now is making ornaments. She makes a couple of different kinds, some with these tiny little beads and others with sequins and stuff. I think she has a few with her, I will have to take a some pictures and show you later. Well we are off to church now, have a great afternoon.

This afternoon, Kip and I are going to an anniversary for a couple celebrating their 25th year of marriage. I wanted to make something a little more formal than I normally make. I stared with this paper from the Paper Company, it is black on one side and on the reverse it is this pretty silver/gray color. The white panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, the scallops were punched with Marvy punches. The sentiment is from the CTMH set, For every Occasion. I love that set and use the sentiments in it all the time. I embossed the sentiment with silver Ranger embossing powder. The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are Petaloo. I buy flowers all the time, but rarely use them. I think I just have a hang up about their placement, I make it much harder than I am sure it really is. There are very few craft related things that I don't dabble in or do to some extent, with the exception of floral arranging. I've tried but they just never look good. So I think putting flowers on cards makes me think of that.
