    Default I totally thieved it! (and my kids' cards)

    I loved the King of my heart layout that Charys did, so I stole it. And it came out great! I embossed the crown in silver. I didn't have a good set of letters to use for "king" so I cut the small circles from black paper and found some silver CM stickers that I used on it instead. Love the look! On the inside, I just hung "I love you" with a silver brad.






    Then for the kids, I made identical cards. Kept it simple cause they really don't care. Jordan always says "you're the best, Mom" and I tell her she's the best too. Now Natalie says it too. Andrew also says it once in a while, so I thought it was cute to put it on their cards. The inside has the same (but smaller) "I love you" used in DH's card (but no brad, because I can see at least one of them taking it off).




    I have a birthday card to make today, and have ideas in my head. Hope they come to fruition! But that must wait for Natalie's naptime.

    Oh I love them!!!! I think the silver embossing does so much for the crown, I like that much better!!!!
    I haven't even made Kayson a card yet. What was I thinking? Here I've done 30 cards and not one for my own son yet. Better get started right now!!!

    yeah, we need a thief emoticon!

    and yes, I love thieving.

    Kayson won't notice if you don't make him a card. my kids made cards for me last week and couldn't wait to give them to me. so, already have them. (well, had them, I didn't save them, we have so much stuff already. I'm so bad!)

    these are FANTASTIC Gwen!!!!! I didn't make cards for my boys this year - Loli and I spent DAYS making cards for his class & teachers and I'm just plain burned out now. Both boys will get heart-shaped foods throughout the day tomorrow (waffles for brekkie, sandwhich for Loli's lunch, that kind of thing).

    I *am* going to have to scraplift Charys' page though ... maybe for an anniversary card.
