Impression Obsession Thursday Challenge-Favourite Techniques

There are so many fun techniques out there to explore and play with, but this week I decided to share my love of dies with you! That's because I'm sharing a sneek peek of the New Dies that will be posted soon in the Impression Obsession Store

The Vase is from a set of five

I filled this lovely vase with Tulips!!!! So sweet!!!!

Sadly, we needed a sympathy card this week as our good friend Lisa lost her Beautiful Mother last week. Our heart goes out to Lisa and her Family at this time.

The sentiment is from the Sympathy Sentiments Clear Stamp Set

Make sure you head on over to the IO BLOG to see who's playing the challenge today and to post your entries.

Isn't this the Sweetest Face you EVER did see?

He had just started walking at the early age of 10 months and could be a touch unsteady on his feet.

I LOVE my stylin' baby with his Rapper cap on!

For this layout, I used Paper from 


It seems like only yesterday that my little Man was a Baby

He grew up in the wink of an eye~

Sweet Romance

Sharing another Project for Z Becky Brown today~~~

My Valentine themed Purse insert

First I used a Pretty Stencil from Prima Marketing and some Tattered Angels Spray to stencil my background paper.

Then I added some texture paste and glitter to make the raised Butterflies {Yummy!!}

I then Stamped the Paper with these two Fab Images from Impression Obsession

I finished it up with some Pretty Flowers by Prima Marketing~

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy 74th Mom!

I know I don't tell you enough how much I love you and all that you do for me

You are the Rock within our little family, ever strong like a mighty oak

You have loved and supported me without question

Even when you didn't agree with my decisions, you've always been there to cheer me on and mend me when i'm broken. Wiped a tear, put me in my place with your brutal honesty.

 You have  always loved me, even when I haven't been very loveable

You are one of the most Beautiful Women I know, both inside and out.

I admire your strength and your heart, which shines through the sometimes harsh and outspoken exterior. I am truly blessed and honoured to call you my Mother

All my Love,
