Some Like it Hot!






Stephanie has her first MIM video with a beautiful card.

Hi there hope you are all having a good week so far. 
We did some palm trimming in the yard (well, mostly my husband) 

On Sunday we were sitting outside and thinking how pretty everything looked.  I called my daughter ( the one with the broken leg) to see if she would like to come over and the kids could swim. Last minute plans and she said yes. Since that family of eight was coming of course I had to call the other kids and see if they wanted to come over as well!  They all said yes....... I went in speed mode to get more food...so happy they all could come ( our son already had plans for the day) We had the best time and it was gorgeous outside ! All 12 grandchildren were with us and they all love being together. 



 Ok, heres the card. I layered the hugs with Kraft card stock then last minute covered it up with white. My card didn't open and shut that well, so I added a backing to it.




 I think I only used this stamp set :Some Like It Hot, once if at all . 
It a fun little set and I was happy to use it this morning. 

 Thanks for the visit!

  3. Very, very pretty, Marybeth! Those colors are fabulous; so bright, happy, and they have such a wonderful summery feel. I'll have to go over and watch the video to see how to do this, though I think I have a pretty good idea. Anyway, I love this card!! So sweet. Sounds like your Sunday was wonderful. We're hoping to have a houseful of little ones on Easter weekend; there's nothing quite like it, is there?!! Have a good week. Bev

  4. I love this, Marybeth. I don't own that set but kinda wish I did now. You ALWAYS seem to do this to me. :) So blessed to be surrounded by all of your 12 littles! I'm lucky that mine all live close by also.

  7. Your day sounded so fun. I love this card and the flowers you used. I also only used this set once. I am currently working on my card for MIM, and it is half way done....I used a die from the same set. Great minds think alike!

  10. I think it is nice that everyone came over at the spur of the moment. I love the card you created with the lovely chipboard sentiment and the pretty flowers. I just saw the challenge. I think that would be difficult for me!!

  12. Fabulous card, Marybeth! I love those flowers too and haven't used them much if at all! I didn't cut mine out from the face of the card, either, I had some scrolly things on the letters and was sure it would get stuck and rip apart! What a wonderful spur of the moment gathering! that is what families should do! Staying connected is so important! They will treasure the times spent with their G & G! Heart Hugs, Col

  24. Sounds like you had a wonderful day and I enjoyed both reading your post and seeing this charming card! I really love the color combination you used and I think that the decision to make it white was genius! This makes me think of Spring and an island and all sorts of wonderful things! You did an amazing job on this and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
