Parade of Birthday cards!

Thank you so much to everyone who sent me birthday cards and Facebook Birthday wishes!

Stampin Up Birthday card made by Jean Hixson. See more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

I love this card made by my sweet friend Jean Hixson.  Jean and I used to work together and have been walking together almost every weekend for about twenty years.  I don’t know what I’d do without Jean in my life!

Even the inside is cute!  Jean put a Post it note inside with a note on it, so I could still use the card and send it on to someone else.  I often use Post it notes in case someone might want to send my card on.  In this case, I love the card too much and need to keep it!  I’m sure some of you will want to know how to make it?

Stampin Up Birthday card made by Ruth Sollberger. More card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #Stampingmom #cute&simple4u

This stunning card came all the way from my sweet friend Ruth Sollberger in Austrailia! Ruth is a BSF/Stamping friend and she is a huge encouragement to me. BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) is a nondenominational world wide Bible study. Here’s the verse that was in Ruth’s card: Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.  Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.

Ruth also sent me this gorgeous cross which I will always treasure. Thanks so much Ruth!

Stampin Up Birthday card made by Sherrie Olson. More card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

My sweet Aunt Sherrie sent me this adorable card.  She has been stamping with me since I started 15 years ago and I love it when we get to spend an afternoon stamping together.  I’m not sure if she did a rainbow on purpose, but I had a “rainbow” wedding and love rainbows and rainbow colors.

Cubs Birthday card made by Barb Sease. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

This awesome Cubs card was made by my sweet BSF/Stamping friend Barb Sease.  Barb and I are both group leaders with the Des Moines Day Women’s BSF.  Superman said this was his favorite card!  He is a little biased. 🙂

Speaking of the Cubs, Sean flew into Chicago today and met Superman, Ryan, Steve’s brothers and families and parents to celebrate Harold and Ruby’s wedding anniversary.  I’m sure they are all having a great time.  Keegan, Abby and I stayed home because Keegan had a required choir contest today and Abby has her last concert with Heartland Youth Choir tomorrow.  Abby’s been in Heartland Youth Choir since she was in third grade.  I was talking to her about her concert today and started crying.  I can’t imagine how many Kleenex I’ll need when I hear the combined choirs sing, “May the Lord Bless you and Keep you,” for the last time after ten years of Abby singing in the choir.

My friend Susan and I dipped 175 cakeballs this morning for my niece Lindsay’s graduation party and Susan’s son’s graduation party.  I’ll be making more for Abby’s grad party soon.  How did they taste you might wonder?  I have no idea, I didn’t taste any.  Why? you might ask. See below.

Diane, my Pedal off the Pounds biking partner, and I rode 16 miles today to Gray’s Lake and back.  It was a gorgeous day in Iowa!  Monday is weigh in day at Pedal off the Pounds.  I’ll let you know if I did indeed pedal off any pounds. Weigh in day is why I didn’t taste the cake balls. 🙂

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

 

April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

The design team I’m on at Use Your Stuff is having a Circle Challenge this week!  Circles are a challenge everyone can easily do, so jump over to Use Your Stuff when you have your Circle Creation completed.

My dear college friend, Sharon, is having a birthday this week so I decided to make this circle birthday card for her.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set has beautiful fonts and is the show piece for this circle challenge birthday card designed by demo Beth McCullough. This April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative makes use of some of my favorite kit parts.Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

A couple friends were over stamping this month’s Paper Pumpkin with me on Friday evening.  I love the Lemon Lime Twist with the black and white, so I chose to use some of the Paper Pumpkin kit parts on this card and make a Paper Pumpkin April 2017 Alternative card.  I used the washi tape from the kit and also the DSP lining from one of the envelopes.  The sentiment is from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Saturday night was Prom for Abby and Keegan.  Here’s a picture of my kids before they met up with their friend groups.  I love the Lilac bushes shown in the background.  They smell wonderful!

We weren’t expecting any kids at our house Saturday evening. Before the night was over, Keegan and his girlfriend stopped over before the dance, Abby and her friend group came to have snacks and change before “After Prom”, and Ryan brought ten of his Okoboji Bible camp counselor friends for a bonfire in our back yard, and seven of them stayed overnight.  With three of our kids along with the seven guests, we had young adults sleeping on every couch and bed all over the house.  Sunday morning we sent them off after having cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs and bacon.  It was a fun evening!  I hope they all come back soon.  Superman and I are going to be super lonely when we become empty nesters in sixteen months!  I’ll probably have a lot more time to make cards though. 🙂
