Big Idea - Mother's Day and Graduation!

Well, my Big ideas are starting to flow again! Probably because I went to sleep early for a couple of nights now. Lack of that beauty sleep probably contributed to the lack of idea flow...
Well, it's Mother's Day weekend so I created these cute cards to send to a couple of friends and of course mom! Used my swirl CB background and the cat and dog dies. Also used the scallop punch and SU stitched ribbon. Paper is a combo of SU and Wild Asparagus. I loved how they turned out!

Then, started to think about graduation, which is right around the corner. Here's what I came up with. The first one used the grad cap from QK and of course the stamp from SU's Warmest Regards set. Papers are a combo of SU and Bazzill and of course the mini brads. This looks like a serious card. For those of you who know me, I like the whimsical designs, so I just had to make a fun card. I chose this chick stamp from Whipper Snapper and actually, this stamp has a phrase "Chick with Brains" on it...I masked those guys out. I was pretty happy with those cards.

My Bellas are here! Yay!! They are so adorable. Had to, had to create something with them, so I whipped up this simple card. Love it! I'm looking for some tack 'n peel so I can use these stamps more.
Today is my dad's 87th birthday! Happy Birthday, Dad! Here's a pic of dad with his yummy ice cream cake. We ordered chinese food to celebrate.
Well, tomorrow is Friday, yay! We are going to Nolan's May Day program in the morning. He was voted to be the Prince of the island of Molokai. Not sure if he's too happy about it but we will see. These days, May Day in Hawaii has turned into a multicultural day. It used to be where all of the different classes (by grades) performed a hawaiian chant or dance. Somehow, that has changed. Now when I look back, I savor those memories of elementary school May Day celebrations, after all, living in Hawaii and for me and living in the country where I grew up with all the Hawaiian people, it's my way of island life.
I remember a bunch of blogs back where I said I was cleaning? Well, I totally forgot about blogging about my **freebies**...will take a pic and post the goodies tomorrow. It'll give me time to think about whatcha need to do to get the sweets!
