For the card above, I used the Owl Builder punch for the little heart.  Everything else is made with the Stampin’ Up Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the Tree Builder punch.  The colors are Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay.  This card was cased from Mary Fish.  I still don’t have all my #imbringingbirthdaysback cards made.  A bunch of cards are going out this week, so please be patient if you’re waiting for yours. 🙂

Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape helped make this card quick and easy.This card was cased from Chris Slogar.  I think Chris’s card was what convinced me I had to have this set and punch.  It makes such a happy scene.

I made this card to fit in a business size envelope 9 1/2 x 4.  I needed lots of room to get both baby bundles hanging from tree branches.  Design assistant Abby, wondered why the baby boy twin card wasn’t blue? That’s a very good question!  Super Man’s friend (Dad of the twin baby boys) works at Iowa State and is a huge Cyclone fan, so I needed to use Iowa State colors.  Congrats on the sweet baby boys! Super Man and I are excited to come up to Ames and babysit the twins!  I found several baby bundle cards on Pinterest, but this is the first twin baby bundle card.

I used Silver Glimmer Paper to make the clouds with the silver lining.  The envelope is lined with Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

I used the Sunday Stamps Challenge to do the layout for this card. #SSC124.  This one is Abby’s favorite!  I also entered this card in the Craft Your Passion Challenge– Anything Goes.

Well, do you have a favorite from the five cards I made using Sprinkles of Life and the Tree Builder Punch?  Please leave a comment at the top of this post.  I love hearing from you!

It was beautiful in Iowa this weekend. Abby and Keegan took advantage of the summer like weather by having a squirt gun fight on the trampoline, followed by a water fight with dueling garden hoses.  I love it that my kids are good friends and have a lot of fun together.  I hope all four of them stay close their entire lives.

Do you see all the hostas coming up under the trampoline?  I grow them there and then move them where I want them in the yard.  I really like the hostas under the trampoline.  It used to be just a dirt patch.  To the right of the trampoline is where Abby has her pumpkin patch each year.

Super Man and I got lots of yard work done this weekend.  Keegan helped him rebuild the mailbox planter box and they installed my new wind catcher from Costco.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

    Hi Andrea. Thanks so much for telling me you were having trouble with the pins. I bet others might be too. If I hover a couple times it usually lets me pin. Just in case I’ll add links to my Pinterest boards. I would love it if you would follow me on Pinterest. Here’s the links: https://www.pinterest.com/iowastampingmom/birthday/ https://www.pinterest.com/iowastampingmom/clean-and-simple-cardsgifts/ https://www.pinterest.com/iowastampingmom/baby/ https://www.pinterest.com/iowastampingmom/stampin-up-cards/
