Convention Shoebox with Flower Shop

I am participating in a shoebox swap at convention.  After trying several different cards, I finally decided on this one.  I needed to find something that was easy to do for a shoebox and one that I didn't have to take a ton of supplies to make it.

I have already stamped, punched out and put a dimensional on the back of these flowers from Flower Shop (using the Pansy Punch.)  The zig zag lines at the bottom were made with a stamp from Work of Art and markers (Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron.)  The leaves are punched out with the Bird Punch.  

This was another idea for the card but I decided on the top one instead.  So, I will just be using this one for a swap card.

We have had a pretty lazy weekend.  Sonny and I had hoped to go out on the boat this weekend but the weather just wasn't cooperating.  We did go to Mooresville Friday night and watched the fireworks.  I wasn't sure they were going to put them off since we got a pretty good rain storm about 9 pm when they were scheduled.  But, finally about 9:30ish, the rain let up enough to let the fireworks light up the sky.  We gave up hopes of  going on the boat & seeing more fireworks on Saturday about 5:00.  We just didn't want to get stuck out on the lake in a storm.  So, we drove to Statesville and had dinner at Outback Steakhouse instead.

My mom is not doing well.  She called me yesterday and was hurting at the top of her diagram - around her breast bone.  I had no idea what the matter could be and advised her if she kept hurting and thought it was something serious, to call 911.  She never did but when Angela came home from work, she took her to Urgent Care.  By the time they got there, she was feeling better so they did not go in.  After church today, they went out to eat and Mom started hurting every time she would try to eat something.  So Angela took her to Urgent Care - this time going in!  The doctor thought it had something to do with her reflux and possibly a stressed esophagus from her back pain and worry about going to the hospital later in the week.  He gave her a stronger Reflux medication.  Later in the afternoon, Angela called me to tell me Mom was hurting worse.  She ended up taking her to the hospital ER and they admitted her for the night just in case it could be something with her heart.  She has never had a history of heart disease.   So, please say a prayer that everything is ok with her and she will be coming home tomorrow.

Stamp Club Cards

These are the cards we made this month for Stamp Club.

This one uses the Faux Tile technique.  Every one did a different color and chose the stamped image on the side from Everything Eleanor, Butterfly Basics or Thoughts and Prayers.

This next card uses a fun fold that I found on-line.  The flowers are from Flower Shop and I used DSP from Back to Black.

This card was so much fun!  It fits into a business sized envelope.  I used the DSP from Sale-a-Bration, Irrestibly Yours.  I cut the balloon images with the Balloons Framelits and sponged them with In Colors.  I used the Little Letters Thinlets to cut HAPPY out of the balloons.  One of the gals punched her son's name out of the balloons instead.

I love the single stamp, Vivid Vases.  These are the two cards I made using them.  One of them uses DSP for the vases and the other uses markers.

Sonny and I had a relaxing weekend in the mountains.  My good friend, Judy, lent us the use of her cabin for the weekend so we enjoyed a delayed anniversary get-away.  The log cabin was so comfy with a creek running through the back of the property.  The weather was perfect.  It started raining on Sunday but we were packing up and heading home anyway.
