11/21 Happy Birthday!

Happy Friday!!!!!
My baby turns 6 today!  So in honor of him I made this birthday card for him.  I got to have so much fun stampping and coloring with this card.  I just wish I could see him open it becuase I am leaving it on his placemat in the morning.  ( I leave the house at 5:45 am and am not home in the morning to see they boys but I alsways leave little notes and cards for them so that they know I am thinking of them!)
I made a video for you on how I made this card.
I am entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge #94. (It has been a long time since I have been able to play and was so excited about this challenge.)  This was just perfect timing with my little one's birthday! See the above link for all the fun details!
Thanks so much for joining me today.  I will see you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Core'dinations and May Arts Gift Bag and Tag

Happy Thursday

I got really excited when they told us that Core'dinations was teaming up with May Arts for a fun giveaway!  Be sure to stop by the Core'dinations Blog to enter to WIN!
For my project I made a hostess gift bag and tag for the holidays.  I love to bring a little gift and have it wrapped really pretty.  For my bag I used the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection. I broke out my Sillhouette to make the beautiful leaves and then got busy with my Lawn Fawn stamps!  To finsih the project off I added some yummy twine and ribbon from May Arts!

Coe'dinations Thanksgiving Day Card

Happy Tuesday

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner?  I mean it is just two short week from now.  Wow!  Where is the time going?????  It seems like life has just been so crazy and busy that my days are just going so fast!  Anyone else feeling the same way??

Core'dinations gave us an assignment to create a card for Thanksgiving.  I wanted to create a clean and simple card that packed a good punch of yummy Core'dinations cardstock.  I broke out my Chocolate Box paper.  I scored and sanded the edges,  and die cut a leaf using my Silhouette.  I then backed the negative space with the Tim Holtz Shattered Core paper.  I stamped my sentiment using the reverse side of the Chocolate Box using a Simon Says Stamp clear stamp.  Finally I added some enamel hearts.
I have a video to share with you

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I will be back soon with a fun gift bag and tag using Core'dintions and May Arts!  Have a wonderful and crafty day.

SOD Garden Gwen

Happy Tuesday
The fun continues with another new stamp set.  This one is Garden Gwen.  The set consists of a portrait of Gwen and then this totally fun frame.  It also contains 2 sentiments.  I think this is by far my favorite thank you sentiment!

For my card I embossed my cardstock and then added some of the yummy woodgrain paper from the Sunshine Sorbet paper collection from Some Odd Girl.  I then added my new frame and sentiment.  Finally I added some of the beautiful sequins.

I have a video to share with you.


Be sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl Shop to see all the new goodies.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will see you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
