Happy Day

Hello Ladies! Happy Monday. This was a quick card I put together yesterday for my husband. It was our 12th anniversary. He totally forgot!! I didn't get too upset since this was the first time her ever forgot. Now I get to order whatever I want from SU!! Well gotta go place my order :)

It's Good to Dream

Hello Ladies. I'm so glad it's the weekend. Time to try and get some things done that's been put off since I've been back to work.

The card today is one that I made using my Big Shot & butterfly die. I should have added some texture to the butterflies, but they still are cute :) The wings on the butterflies aren't flat. I scanned the card so you can't see how they stand out. Have a great weekend!

Get Well Soon

Hello Ladies! Happy Thursday. I can't believe this week is going by so fast. I just made a quick and simple card. I hadn't used this set in a long while. I like the way it turned out. Well, gotta go and do some work :) Have a great day!

Hello Ladies. Happy Wednesday. I am on a roll! I have posted something 3 days in a row. I guess I'm back in my routine now. Today's card I wanted to use my Circle Circus set which I haven't used in a long time. Dusty Durango was one of my least favorite of the new In Colors, but I think it make some nice Fall cards. Have a wonderful day!

Thanks So Much

Hello Ladies. Happy Tuesday! I wanted to do a card that had some fall colors in it. I used my Eastern Blooms stamp set for this card. I colored my flowers with Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango markers and colored the stem with Soft Suede.

This other picture I have is of my "new" puppy. I was puppy sitting for one of the teachers at work over the summer because she had to go home (New Zealand), for the summer and work. She thought she would be able to bring her puppy back with her but she wasn't able to. Now I have a puppy. She's great!! Now when I came home from work she misses me and wants to sit on my lap and look out of my window. Needless to say I can hardly get anything done. She so adorable I don't care.

My first Christmas card this year.

Hello Ladies. Happy Monday!I feel like I'm behind. I see a lot of post with Christmas cards. I thought I'd start on some too. I made this card using one of my favorite sets. I actually bought this set from the Holiday Mini last year because a customer contacted me and she wanted 35 cards made with this set. This is a set I would have never bought for myself but I love it! You can do so much with it. I saw a card similar to this one somewhere, but I don't remember now. Have a wonderful day!

You Mean Everything

Hello Ladies. Happy Thursday. This card is from another set I borrowed. I wanted to try masking, so the card is as simple as can be. I also wanted to use some of the colors I haven't used in ages. I love this color combo. Have a great day.

Another Thinking of You Card

Hello Ladies. Happy Monday. I can't believe I actually had time to make a card and post today. Better late than never. My card is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set I borrowed. This is so simple but I love it. It is very fall. I used my Big Shot to texture the Dusty Durango paper. I don't know if you can see it that well. I think that is my favorite part of the card.

Praying for You...

Hello Ladies. I was terribly busy this week. School started and I have been exhausted. I have to get back into my routine. I have also been working on my niece's baby shower cards. She wanted 50, but now she only wants 25. I'll post a pic of them when they are all done.
This card I made using a borrowed set. I like to try before I buy! Most of the sets I have I borrowed from my upline Brenda, then I buy them if I like them. Thanks Brenda!! She is great. I also wanted to make a card using my Top Note die. I like the way it turned out. Have a great day!

Thank You

Happy Sunday Ladies! Yesterday I went to my upline Brenda's house again. She just got the new lattice die. This is a card I made with it. I love this die! It's on my list for my next order :)

School starts for us tomorrow, so I probably won't have many post a while. The first few weeks of school are hectic and I get wore out. Have a wonderful day!

Happy Thursday!

Hello Ladies. Where has this week gone? I can't believe it's Thursday already. School starts next week for us. I'm excited to start a new year. It just seems like my vacation flew by.

Today's card is one I put together. I wanted to make another card using my new Texturz plate. I like the way it turned out. Have a nice day!

Thinking of You

Hello Ladies. Happy Tuesday!

I got my order today & I couldn't wait to tear open that box. My new toy is sooo much fun. I made a very quick and simple card today. I used the embossing folder with this card. It looks prettier in person. The scan didn't come out that good. Well I'm off to create some more fun stuff.

3x3 Sweet Stems Card Set

Hello Ladies and Happy Monday. I haven't used my Tea Party DSP in a while so I wanted to make something with it. I chose to make this 3x3 card set. I made a box & 8 cards. I made 2 of each style. I haven't used this side of the paper with the bigger flowers. I think they look nice since the paper isn't that big. Well have a wonderful day.
