A Little Bragging and a Card

I haven't shown you guys my poster yet. I can't believe it! I am in LOVE with this thing! I'm trying to figure out a place to hang it in my office. This is what the boys met me at the airport with. I was so overwhelmed with happiness to see them and the poster was just icing on the already amazing cake!

Look at how much care went into making it! Each letter is cut from different pieces of OLD scrapbook paper (I have a bin of it that Brady's allowed to use for his craft projects) then outlined in marker and crayon. Brady colored on it with crayons and put some of his little stickers on there. You can't see it in this picture but they also traced all their handprints onto the poster. Sooooooo cute! I LOVE my poster, it makes my heart SWELL with joy and love! How lucky am I to have such a sweet hubby and darling boys that would CRAFT just for me? :)

Ok, next is just a super simple card I made. Isn't that CRAZY? I actually made a card. It's like I have some sort of craft blog or something. ;) This card was so fast but I LOVE it! It's just some MME Be*Loved paper, some sheer organza ribbon from Michael's, and an Ippity stamp from the Straight From the Heart set. (This set is perfect for Valentine's Day and is available for purchase in my right sidebar >>>>) This is my take on the inspiration challenge on Melissa Phillips blog, you can see her challenge HERE.


Happy Wednesday everyone!
