Summer Break

Hello and Happy Friday!!!

Spring is finally upon us and that means summer is just around the corner.  Children get a break from school, barbecues, 4th of July celebrations, gardening and maybe even a road trip!  So many fun things to do!  With that being said our wonderful boss, Sue, has let the design team off for the summer.  Oh, I am sure we will all still find some time to craft but we can also spend time enjoying the lazy days that summer brings.  You can always browse the M5D store and make your wish lists!  CLICK HERE  One can never have too many digital sets!!!  *Ü*

Today I used a set called Petunia by McMahon Five Designs.  I really have the gardening bug and I just LOVE planting all different colors of petunias (especially the salmon/coral ones)!  Hope you like today's creation!  By the way....McMahon Five Designs has been around for FIVE glorious years....Happy Anniversary!!!  I am glad to be part of the team!  Thanks, Sue!!!

Birthday Boy!

Hello and Happy Friday to you!

Today is Flashback Friday over at M5D.  Don't forget to sign up for the newsletter on the M5D page.  You don't want to miss all of the new releases and it is always fun to see which older sets the design team chooses to use every other Friday!  *Ü*

Today is my baby boys 17th birthday!  Every year on his special day he likes to pay a visit to the BEST ice cream shop in Stillwater, MN.....Nelson's !!!  This was my inspiration for making his birthday card.  I used an old set by Draw Me A Daydream called Boyscream.  The servings scooped out at Nelson's are absolutely HUMUNGOUS and I thought the ice cream cone in this set was just perfect!

Winter Wishes

Hello and Happy 2014!

Today McMahon Five Designs has an all new Flashback Friday newsletter.  The design team was on a long holiday break but we are back and ready to show you all of the oldies but goodies that M5D has to offer.  Many of today's images are on sale, too!  Happy New Year, crafters!

Here in Minnesota we have been hit with freezing temps and lots of snow.  This weather inspired me to use the cute snowman by McMahon Five Designs.  I used the snowflake cuttlebug background in honor of all the snow we are getting!  Don't you just love all of the accessories we have access to?!

Also, I don't know how many of you have an Archiver's craft store in your area, but I was so saddened to hear that they are going bankrupt and will be closing their doors in the next few weeks.  I had a gift card from my husband that I didn't want to go to waste, so I found many deals at my wonderful local Archiver's.  Boo Hoo!

Card Recipe-
Image-Digital image called Snowman by McMahon Five Designs
Ink-Bordering Blue, Printer Ink (black)
Paper-White, Bordering Blue
Accessories-Dimensionals, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punches, Dazzling Diamonds, Ribbon (from Costco), Enamel Dots, Copics, Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder

I hope your 2014 is off to a terrific start!  Enjoy your weeked!
