Spring Card

Yes, winter may have just begun....but I'm already looking ahead for spring: I'm praying warm weather will be here soon. Here's a little card that makes me excited for spring:In case you can't see, the quote says "if nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies -unknown"

Challenge Card

I received some goodies in the mail from my SS and still hadnt had a chance to use them. So, I've made this card to send to her. I'm trying to use all the scraps and such that I have here is my finished card. What do you think?

The holidays are a time of love and giving....but they are also a time of STRESS. And there's no better remedy than a nice bar of chocolate! Here is a Chocolate Pull I created using the Crazy for Cupcakes set (stampin up). I picked up the ribbon in a set of 3 at the Target dollar spot (one of my favorite places). Enjoy!

(oops....sorry if I sparked a major cupcake craving! these little guys just look so delicious!)

CHKD Bucket

I love to decorate is one I did to put candy in at my desk at work. A friend and I are collecting money for the CHKD Change Round-Up.

There is very little stamping involved. Just one stamp from the Smorgasborders set. I drew the letters and cut them out.

Hope you enjoyed today's project. Keep checking back for more.

Can you believe it's November?

Wow...November is already here.
Before you know it Christmas will be here...which means its time to start thinking about your christmas cards. That one time a year you replicate a so many cards you lose count to send out to your family and friends.
This year I've chosen a waterfall card for my card of choice.
I'm not quite ready to display this card yet, but I will give you a little preview of all the work I've been doing this weekend.
That is: Not Quite Navy cardstock with White Craft Ink (stampin up products) and a custom stamped I ordered from Stamps by Impression.

I'll reveal a different part of this card over the next week. Next weekend I will display the completed card....gotta keep you in suspense for a little while.

Thanks for stopping by.

Friendship is the Sweetest Flower

Created this one from some designer series paper....gotta love this stuff!
The only thing that is stamped is the sentiment: "you're simply the best"

I made a couple others changing the layout and placing the flowers in different places. Give it a go!
