For You...

I made this card for an amazing gal I know!! She is so super sweet! Well, she's going through a really hard time right now and I wanted to let her know that I'm thinking about her...maybe cheer her up a little!! I really hope she likes it!!
If you have a quick second please pray for her!

CPS #66

I had a blast with this CPS Sketch! Although photographing a circle card is interesting...sorry it's a little crooked! In case you can't read the little saying, here is what it says:

"If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you."
-Winnie the Pooh

I just LOVED that little quote! Although I didn't make this for my hubby, that's how I feel about him!
Oh, and you know me...have to do the inside! This one is kind of plain, but I just loved that flower paper! I even added bling to the middles! Thanks for looking!

It's Thursday!!!

I just LOVE Thursdays!! Why, you ask? Because the new sketch from Sketches! {by tamara} is posted!! And let me tell you...this one is AWESOME!!! Make sure you check out what the Design Team did...every card is differet!! They all are so AMAZING!!!
Here is mine!

Starbucks Anyone?

I don't know about you, but I'm a huge Starbucks LOVER!!! It's the only coffee I will drink! I know...that's pretty bad! Anyways, when I was drinking my latest "fix" I decided to keep the frappacino bottle and altered it into a vase! It was super fast...took about 10 minutes...super super easy!!

So, now I've noticed that I always look at things differently before I throw them away...can it be altered? Can it be used on a page?

Altered Magnet & A HOT DEAL!!!

I recieved a circle magnet in the mail the other day and was about to throw it away...when I felt a little light bulb flash above my head!! haha Anyways so instead of trashing it this is what I made! This is a picture of me when I was little! Hey, no laughing!!! lol It was really easy and would make a perfect gift!!

Thanks for looking...make sure you stop by again tomorrow! I am working on altering a Starbucks frappacino bottle!! So come take a peek!

A Peek Inside...

As you all know...I sew a LOT on my cards!! I've been asked several times what the inside of my cards look like, do I leave the inside raw?? Nope, I ALWAYS cover it, here's a peek of a card I made for a friend! His anniversary is on Saturday and wanted something special for his lady!!

Fuzzy Wuzzy...

As some of you already know, we have been actively looking for another kitten to join the family! Last week we were all disappointed when another family was chosen over ours to recieve a kitten...but still continued to look! After some thought we decided to wait a couple weeks until we get back from vacation...well at least "I" thought we were...Monday night my hubby fell in love and brought her home!! Meet Marlee! He was "so" head over heels for her that he already has a kitten-sitter ready to go! How silly is that!! here's our newest addition!

And of course I can't leave without posting a couple cards!! The second one holds a giftcard!

What A Day!!

So, as you've read from my previous post...I was asked to make someone a Mother's Day card...well...that one card ended up being nine...and counting!! My hubby calls every couple hours will another's pretty funny! I never knew guys would go bonkers over handmade cards! One loved them so much he asked if I would make a really special birthday card for his niece who is turning 16...her name is Angel! I just thought that was so super sweet! So here's the card I made using the new Dream Street papers called Hugs-n-Kisses!! I absolutely LOVE this line!!

Oops...almost forgot! My first card is up on Sketches! {by tamara}! Make sure you go take a peek at the new sketch and all the wonderful cards done by the other DT members!!
