Love the Magnolia Stamps

Our sixteenth wedding anniversary was yesterday and we ended up getting a new car.  Love it.  My brother and sister-in-law was with us.  It is white and has a dark gray interior..The model is a Chevorlet Equinox.
My younger brother Greg and his wife Linda came in Saturday to go to family reunion on Sunday. Had two really good days with them. They left this morning to go back home.  Kind of sad, but I will see them again.
Well the bridal shower went well and she got alot of nice gifts.  We all had fun.  We all got together for a bachlorette party on the 23rd of June.  There were eight of us and we rented a room at a place called Echo and had finger food and sang karaoke for two hours and then went to the neon cactus.  We had so much fun dancing and laughing.  Now all that is left is to get the couple married.

My birthday was on the 17th of this month.  Had such a great beautiful day.  Jeff took to Texas Road House for dinneron Thursday and Friday we went to Creedside for some drinks and then went to Roachdale with some friends for karaoke.  Had a blast.  Saturday we put pontoon in water and rode around for awhile.  Sunday was a take it easy day.  I received a new pr of Nikes from Jeff, Hobby Lobby gift card from Stef and family, twenty dollars from Nicole and family and a piece of luggage from Michelle and family.
 I made these bags for a bridal shower I'm giving.  They will haold the prizes for the games, but the prizes go to the bride-to-be.  I used Maggie images from a swap so not sure what they are.  Her colors are pink, black and white.  I used spellbinders for two of the and the cake was cut out with SU framelits. I used SU black paper and ribbon from my stash.  Folded ctop of bags down, punched holes and tied ribbon thru the holes.  I used prima flowers and little pink pearls on the cake.

Mother's Day

I had a very good Mother's Day.  My hubby got me a watch, two hanging baskets and flowers for my containers for porch, and he took me for a prime rib dinner. My daughter Michelle got me some yard decorations and my daughter Stefanie and her family sent me a dozen mixed colored roses. My step-daughter Nicole and her family gave me $20.00.  What could any mother ask for.

 This plate belonged to my grandmother or great-grandmother one. I took a pink doily and shaped it into a bonnet. I took white prima flowers and sprayed them with Tattered Angels chalkboard glimmer mist cotton candy and put on brim.  I took a green flower and used the petals for the leaves.  I used a floral pearl spray to decorate side of plate.  I used a Martha Stewart cherished tag and stamped wonderful mother on it and pop dotted it on doily.  Used  piece of green polka dotted ribbon on tag.  This is for my grandkids to give to their mom for Mother's Day.

Well here I am again.  I have been busy planning a bridal shower for a friend of mine.  Her colors are hot pink, black, and white, so using those colors I made her invitations and a wedding card for them. I used all stampin up products except for the hot pink paper. The double heart punch, heart punch border also are not stampin up products.
