Good Morning Everyone...Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Here's a birthday card I made for my brother in law using The Cutting Cafe's Clock Background Printable Stamp Set and the It's About That Time Set for the clock and sentiment.

It was my husbands idea so I really have to give him credit---

Don't Forget I Love You-Cutting Cafe

Good Morning Everyone. I hope you had a great weekend. It was a busy one for me. My youngest son and daughter in law had a combined birthday party for my grandson Kenny Michael who turned 5 July 15th and the twins, Nathaniel and Jeremiah who will be 1 on July 26th. There were 38 people there so I don't have to tell you how crazy it was but it was nice to see people that we hadn't seen since the last family event. We had gorgeous weather and a good time was had by all! Here is a card I made for my husband's daughter that has had some issues going on in her life and I thought she needed to know that her dad loved her. The picture didn't turn out very clear and I couldn't understand why...we found out yesterday that the setting on the camera had been changed but since the card was already sent, I wasn't able to take another picture. I used the Cutting Cafe's Animal and Bug Mini Colored Circle Set. This is an awesome set that comes with 47 images. The word circles come in 2 sizes and the set also comes with each of the animals and bugs all by themselves. It also comes with the backgrounds and 9 solid color circles. How cool is that, Regina has done all the work for you. All you have to do is print, cut and embellish and it's done!!! I added a tag from The Valentine's Day Mini Word Set. For the back, I reduce the size of the elephant and added it to the Handmade Just For You Circle that Regina customized with my blog address that I recolored to match the paper---
Here's The Recipe---
Card Size: 4.25" x 4.25 Note Card
Stamp/Image: Cutting Cafe-Animal and Bug Mini Colored Circle Set
Tag Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Valentine's Day Mini Words
Handmade Circle: Cutting Cafe-Handmade Just For You-Custom Circle Label
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Punch: Stampin Up Jewelry, EK Scallop Corner
Accessories: Hand Dyed Seam Binding Ribbon, Glitter, Flat Back Pearls, Rain Dots/Hearts, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Core'dination
Patterned Paper: Cutting Cafe-Animal and Bugs Mini Colored Circle Set (printed on Beckett Expression)
                                    
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit. Because I haven't been on the Internet this weekend, I've not had a chance to visit my favorite blogs and I've got a TON on emails that have gone unanswered so be patient with me...I'll try to get caught up between today and tomorrow. Have a great day...I'll see you next time!

When Regina told us the theme this month was going to be Summer, I knew exactly what I was going to do. This card uses the Sun Shaped Cutting File Template. The set comes with 2 circle word sentiments, 2 regular sentiments and 2 optional top layer sentiments. It is approximately 6" by 3.5" and comes with a matching size envelope--- 
Here's The Recipe---
Card Size: 6" x 3.5"
Shaped Template- Cutting Cafe-Sun Shaped Cutting File/Template Set

Tools: BossKut Gazelle, Paper Piercer
Accessories: Rain Dots

Patterned Paper: Unknown (from my scraps bin)

I said there were 2 top layer sentiments in this set...so let me leave you with a little bit of sunshine. The other sentiment is "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine...you make me happy when skies are gray..."  I don't know about you but I know I will be singing "You Are My Sunshine" for the rest of the day! Regina will be posting the Design Team's projects the evening of July 12 so be sure to check the Cutting Cafe for a dose of inspiration along with a chance to win 3 files from The Cutting Cafe.
