Vacation and some Lawn Fawn "Little Bundle" Cards

Happy Friday everyone!! It is my last day of vacation before the weekend. Charlotte and I spent it home as Chris was away on business.

I was a bit sad that we were not able to go away somewhere this year but it was a beautiful week weather wise and Char and I got to hang out together. I even spent one day in my pjs just watching television. Why? Because I COULD!! Here are a few random photos from the week.

We went shopping and Target was one of our stops. I made Charlotte pose with the Target dog!!

The weather has been nice and my tulips have opened up. I LOVE spring!!

Charlotte had a costume fitting on Wednesday. The studio owner let the parents take photos of the girls all dressed up. She would kill me if she knew I revealed the costumes before the recital!!

One of our impulse buys at Target was this bow tie for Zack. Doesn't he look adorable?

I never take selfies but had to send a photo to my husband of my hair. I lightened it yesterday. One thing about dying your grays-you can go any color you want!! (Within reason!!)

I have been kind of quiet here on my blog as of late not because I have not been busy in my craft room but because I have been creating up a storm for a bunch of DT assignments. Next week there will be plenty of posts!!

However, I did want to post my cards that I created with Lawn Fawn's "Little Bundle" stamp and die set. I kind of became obsessed with using it.

My first card I used the stamps and dies to make a simple boy card.

One thing about this set is that I was able to use a TON of scraps.

I think my favorite thing about this card is the overalls!! I used Nuvo Gloss White Crystal Drops for the buttons and now I am obsessed with the stuff!!

For my second boy card, I used the new My Favorite Things "Blueprints 27" and the Lawn Fawn set to create the card.

Again, I utilized pattern paper scraps with the stamps for the clothes and the blanket.

I then made some baby girl cards. I have to give both sexes equal opportunity!!

LOVE the patterned paper I used for the background!! I am so bummed that Basic Grey is closing its doors!!

I did a little fussy cutting for the bow on the jumper.

For baby girl card #2, I stamped a background in pink with the images from "Little Bundle."

The tag was created using CHRISTMAS paper!! I have been trying to utilize my holiday paper for more then just what it was made for.

I am adding a third baby girl card that was the first card I created using the "Little Bundle" set but never posted.

I adore the gray paper I used for the background but alas, have no idea what company it is from. If I did, I would buy more. It is perfection!!

Again I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in "Red Berry" to create the buttons, as well as the trim on the sleeper. 

Well, that is all for me today. Thank you for stopping by!! I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!!

Sometimes the best vacations are the ones where there is no pressure at all. And judging by that adorable lineup of creativity I'd say your vacation is agreeing with you!!
