This card was made for a co-worker who needed a first birthday for a little boy. I followed a sketch that was part of our bi-monthly challenges.

Happy birthday!!

I've been terrible about keeping my blog updated...but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy creating - just not the best about posting....

here is a card I made for a challenge - tons of birthday cards are needed!!

Summer fun!!

Here is a card I made for a challenge - love this stamp from The Greeting Farm. Background paper is DCVW summer stack from a couple of years ago...the pool water is more DCWV - some of the very first stacks purchased...the wahsu tape on the right hand side is from The Greeting Farm also. She is colored with Copics (except her hair - that was colored with SU markers).

Once I found this paper this layout flew together quick as anything - I only wasted half an hour locating this paper - it was some of the first I bought from QVC back in the day when they still had craft shows....huge mistake on their part - the money I spent -ohevy- I don't want to even think about it!! The letters were cut using Alphalicious and then I outlined them with a black marker and then popped them off the page using pop dots.
I found the prettiest snowflake brads at Hobby Lobby and used one to accent the letter O.

bust buds

Kaytlyn and Caira are best buds - and do so much together from sleepovers to band, basketball, soccer and softball This paper is Cosmo Cricket - I really liked the critters.

baby shower banner

This is a banner I made using my latest (and greatest) Cricut cart - Alphalicious - this is so verstile!! This is for a baby shower my niece Sierra is hosting for a co-worker. I have to find some ribbon to link them together - what I picked out earlier was too short.....


Danielle is the challenge host for this month and has come up with some real doozies! I love them and am dying to try them all but I have limited crafting time this weekend. Here are my entries in the Love category:

This layout is of my niece Stephanie's wedding - (I lifted the pix from Facebook)
A close up of the ribbon and crocheted lace trims and the Maya Road crystal headed pins Iva gave me. Love these!!

And this is a digi stamp but I have so many I'm not sure where I got it....I just know that it's lovely and perfect for this simple page.

A gate way Valentine's Day card - not sure who will be the recipient of this card yet but I really like the way it came out.
