New Stamps!

 My mother in-law and mom both have a birthday coming up AND I just got these new Lawn Fawn stamps at Archiver's when visiting my sister in Indiana last week!  The perfect time to try these new fun stamps out. :) This is only my second set of Lawn Fawn stamps...but I seriously love them.

Just looking at this Ferris Wheel makes me happy! I also love the sentiment, "Enjoy the Ride," which I think my mom is doing right now.  I can see her loving spending time with her cute granddaughter, enjoying being an empty-nester and working a job that keeps her feeling young (she's a preschool teacher).  Her birthday is over Labor Day weekend, so I'm hoping that my husband and I will be able to travel the few hours to spend some of her birthday weekend with her.
It was so fun coloring this Ferris Wheel and I love the purple gem added to the middle.  Stars from the set are stamped in the same color as the background paper to give it some depth.

This next card is for my mother in-law, whose birthday is in the end of August.  This card will have to be mailed, so I tried not to add too much bulk or the mailman will get cranky! My mother in-law just spent a 1 1/2 weeks visiting us in Illinois and is facing some medical problems right now.  I love the balloon from the "Admit One" set, so I thought I'd make her a bunch of balloons covered with Glossy Accents to help her celebrate.  Hopefully this card will make her smile when she receives it.  We are praying for her to have amazing strength from above through the next couples of months!
 "Happy Birthday" is from Hero Arts set LL662 (Small Greetings)
