Mothers Day Cards

These are a few mothers day cards that I whipped up. I really didn't have as much time as I would have liked but I still LOVE them! I am really into the old fashion vintage look right now. Its just too cute!
I really didn't do any special techniques or anything so you can probably get the general idea of how each one was made just by looking at the pictures.
Hope you like them! :)

This first card is made with all Cosmo Cricket Material girl... one of my favorites! What I like to call a "fun" line.
This next card is made all with GCD's paper line by Melody Ross called Homespun Chic! Another great vintage line! I LOVE it because both of these lines are vintage but have completely different looks.

Flea Market Finds

These are just a few pictures that I took while at the Flea Market this Sunday. I must say that I really did find inspiration in all of the vintage and artsy collections. Most of the booths that caught my eye were what I would call Shabby Chic and Country Cottage. It was very cloudy... so the pictures are not as great as I wanted them to be. However, they are still fun to look at! Hope you can find something that inspires you. :)
This last picture is just a tree from my back yard. I LOVE IT!!! Hello Spring!

3 friggin cute animal pics!

Over the past week I have gotten some of the cutest and funniest shots with my camera! I just LOVE them all. Let me know what you think! :)

This first one is my kitty Monty! He was about to jump over the fence to torment our Neighbors dogs. They have 5 big dogs and all of them are scared of our little cat Monty! LOL! He looks like he thinks he is King or something. I love it!
This next picture is one that I caught at the local zoo next to our house. You cant see it but there were 2 others ducks up above. This duck looks like he is looking around the corner for them!
Too funny!

Now this one is the BEST! My friends and I were shopping around a little town before we went to the Flea Market and this beautiful dog came up behind us. We stopped to pet him for a minute and then he went on ahead. We soon caught back up to him because he was stopped in front of one of the shops. We were are saying that we wondered what had his attention and we were thinking it must be a food place or something. LOL! Well once we got up close we soon found that it was the cutest little kitten ever!!! The dog was so excited and just wanted to play!! :) The kitten just sat in this position the whole entire time! Right when I took the picture I caught the dog pawing at the glass! Perfect timing!!
