June Birthdays!!!

Well it's been a very busy and expensive June and it's still not over.  I have two birthdays this weekend for two little girls so I was able to make some cards for them.  Very simple cards, but I think they lend towards the celebrations...
I got the idea for this card from Pinterest.  I love how they cut their edges to expose the pattern underneath.
I used the Lucy Paper Pack (CTMH) and Shimmer white paper (SU).
Stamps: Smiles and Cricut stamps (CTMH)
Ink: Blush, Sweet Leaf, Creme Brulee, and Grey Flannel (CTMH)
Accessories: Bling Brad (CTMH) Ribbon (unknown) Pop adhesive (SU)

Paper: Lucy (CTMH) and Shimmer White (SU)
Stamps: Princess Wings and Cricut stamps (CTMH)
Ink: Creme Brulee, Blush, Sweet Leaf, Silver Emboss Powder (CTMH) Iridescent Emboss Powder (SU)
Accessories: Bitty Bling (CTMH), Pop adhesive (SU), and Ribbon (unknown)

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my goodies!  I hope you all have a great day.

We have finally finished a website for our farm!!  Yeah I know, we live in Japan, but we have some land that our cattle have been on and this website is just for those goodies.  Our cattle are a breed that are part of the Heritage breed.  They are Pineywood Cattle and are really good with living off the land.  They are a very hearty breed and don't need much interference from us.  They actually are a very sweet breed and tend to be very curious and friendly.  If you would like to see more about them and our site please check it out!

Thanks for looking today, I hope you all have a great day!

Well it's been crazy around this casa lately...there's been camping/climbing weekends, girl's nights out, and just plain crazy kids days.  I haven't been able to do much, but I have been able to do a little.  Here's some photos.  I hope you enjoy!

This is a card for my niece that has finished her first year at college.  It goes along with some Japanese treats from home.  :) The idea of the card came from Pinterest and I just went from there.  The original card was adapted from, I just added some of my flair for the card.
Cardstock is Grey Flannel (CTMH).  Ink: Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Pacifica (CTMH).  Stamps: Just for You (CTMH) and Medallion (SU).  Accessories: Designer Brad (CTMH) and Ribbon (unknown).

The Paper is a retired pack from Close to My Heart.  I used decorative scissors instead of the cricut machine for time.  Ink: Chocolate(CTMH). Stamps: Cricut Package (CTMH).  Accessories: Bling Assortment (CTMH) and ribbon (unknown)

All paper is from unknown.  I used the Cricut Philosophy to cut out the whole banner and made a tutu to add to the depth of the banner instead of using the yo-yos.

The original card was found on Pinterest and the original blog it came from is by:
I made it my own for my mother and mother-in-law for Mother's Day.
The paper is Chocolate,  Sweet Leaf and Lucy Paper Duo (CTMH).  Ink: Grey Flannel, Sweet Leaf and Chocolate (CTMH).  Stamp: Card Word Puzzle (CTMH) and Flower (SU).  Accessories: Bling (CTMH) and ribbons (Unknown)

Thank you for looking and I hope you all have a great day!
