HAPPY MONDAY!!

Hi all!!! Whoohoo!! Spring Break is here in the Hobson house which means no rushing around in the mornings! I love that - it means coffee and blogging in my jammies without leaving the house first, lol! We have lots of fun things planned this week and the kids are excited. Tony actually gets Friday off so we are going to Six Flags Marine World - I am looking forward to it because they have a huge wild animal park inside and all the new babies will be out...I love new babies of any kind, lol! Today we are kind of kicking back and I have my downline coming over later to stamp - that will be fun! So, today I thought I would share the last of my workshop cards. The first one is a hinge card which is fun and easy to make. I used my new Font of You set and I have to say, I really do love it! I also used my Baroque Motifs stampin' wheel across the top of the card where the hinge is. The umbrella was stamped twice and I cut out the top of it and popped it up on dimensionals to give the card some depth. I also added some versamark, clear embossing powder, and some heat to make it really pop. (I demo'd this, I had already cut them all out for them!) And, look at that yummy taffeta ribbon, I just love it!!! I did this one a little different by putting the sentiment on the inside of the card, but it worked for this one and they really liked it, which is what really matters! Here is a pic of the inside I left most of it blank so that they could fill in whatever they wanted since it WAS for them, lol! I have actually added some more baroque accents to mine, but since this card has already left the house and I forgot to take an updated picture, you will just have to imagine it *wink* This next card is a birthday card using my Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set - I just love the stamps in this set, they are perfect to use bling on which as you can tell, I did for this one! It is Iridescent Ice - I should own stock, I use it sooooo much, heehee! I thought this one turned out bright and fun and it is going in the mail today to one of our friends who has a birthday coming up. These were fun to make and the gals enjoyed making them as well! If you have any questions, drop me an email, I am always happy to answer them! Now, I am off to prepare for an afternoon of stamping fun, whooohoo!! Have a great Monday and thanks so much for stopping by!! Smooches!

Have fun at Marine World its more amusement parkish now, from when I was a kid, they have moved most of the animal out because they were getting too sick from the noise of the rides. My daughter still goes every summer and loves it. You all will have fun! Do you go on the upside down rides too? If I remember right it can get a little windy in the evenings but hot during the day lol.
love the card
and have fun this week staying in your pjs!!

Yummy cards! I like each one of them. I liked your page in the prior post, also. That cupcake stamp is sooo cute. I've got the oval scallop punch on order. I can see lots of possibilities for that one, as evidenced in your use on your cute card! Thanks for sharing.
