June Bug Happy 90th Birthday!


Happy Friday! I made a few cards for my mom yesterday for some special occasions she needed. I loved the way this one turned out for Aunt Ruth, who is celebrating her 90th birthday this Sunday. I used the yummy new Basic Grey June Bug collection that I found at Archiver's in Overland Park, KS last Saturday! Aunt Ruth is a quilter like my mom, so this paper was perfect!



The card base is SU Kraft and I also used Certainly Celery ran through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I had to get some envelopes at Wal-Mart, and they are 6 1/2" x 4 3/4", so the finished card size is 6" x 4 1/4". Here is the matching envelope:



I thought this would be a good time to show my mom in action with her long-arm quilting machine. She was quilting a darling baby quilt she made for a lady at church for her baby shower this weekend. Nice shower gift, huh?!!




We did take a little time off from all of our "work" on Wednesday and went shopping at the outlet mall and saw a movie, The Proposal. It was a good, happy chick flick movie!

Hope you're having a good week! I'll be visiting you soon and catching up on my Google Reader! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Makes sense that your Mom's the creative one as well, knowing you! Creativity is mostoften something that runs in the family, I find.

Have a great weekend!
