A few new projects and Happy Father's Day Honey...

I know I am a day early but I just wanted to wish my hubby a very Happy Father's Day. Love you! This photo is from a recent Whitewater rafting trip.

And just a few quick projects...

I think these are my favorite pictures of Jack. I know he is my kiddo and I am quite biased but he really is the cutest kid ever, lol! Look at that sweet face.

I love my punches and am trying to find new ways to use them. I think the punched edges really dressed up this card. I love clean lines but it just adds a little "fancy" to a project!

I have had these pictures of my nieces forever and came up with this idea for a LO...what cuties!Here are a few details...

Check out the Plain Jenn from Creative Chaos Etsy. I am so addicted to them.

My mom is planning a trip with 2 of her friends so now I am all prepared with this card. I love working ahead.

With 6 nieces there is always a birthday on the horizon. I made this little altered tin and matching card for the next one. Perfect way to gift a little cash or a gift card (you know that is what the kids want) and still make it a personal gift. She can just slide off the punched wrap and flowers and use it to store earrings or other little trinkets.

I am loving yellow right now and here is a new card using my June DT kit from I AM A Scrapaholic. Mom-Mom will love it for sure.

Last but not least I want to welcome this new little family to our neighborhood. Mom and Dad are never far from the baby and I got to watch feeding time the other day...so sweet!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love all of your projects but that little giftcard set is so sweet. Love the colors. Elliott wants to go whitewater rafting this summer but I am a wee bit scared. We'll see. Hope you are having a super weekend.

You always seem to have such wonderful ideas Mimi, the trinket box and matching card looks amazing.

I hope your DH had a wonderful Father's Day and he got spoilt.

Hope your hubby had a wonderful Father's Day! And I can't leave without saying thank you for visiting and leaving such sweet comments. Always, love to see you've stopped by! :)

Mimi - your layouts are awesome and so colorful and I have to agree with - Jack's picture are so cute. And your DH pic is also great - whitewater rafting I'm impressed. I love bluebirds - we have a couple of boxes too - boy they go crazy though when a snake comes near. We actually had baby birds fall out and pretend their wings were broken until the snake went away - my DH put gloves on and picked them up and placed them back in the box. Such sweetness!!
