Back in the day....

Happy Thanksgiving!  I came across a box of cards in my closet filled with cards I made way back in the day when I first started card making. I was so proud of these and thought they were the best cards ever....(laughing).  I'm sharing them with you to give you a good laugh today.
 Not sure why I even kept them.
I apologize to those of you who received these
cards back in the day. You probably thought my kids
made them. 

I still have this back ground stamp.

I used lots of stickers back then. 

This was a card set. These cards were so stiff. Back
in the day I used stick glue and construction paper
to make my cards. 

Oh Dear, look at this one. 

Laughing!! I remember making this card. It was my
first try at ink distressing. I only had a few CTMH
ink pads back then. I still have those ink pads today.
I hope I made you laugh. Have a blessed day with family and friends! God Bless you and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday! How is everyone today? Are you getting adjusted to the time change? It's funny because we are painting our kitchen  and dinning room (yes we are still remodeling) and we removed our lighting, so we are eating dinner with candle light since the time changed. I can't image how life was before electricity. Sorry ladies but it's not as romantic as they say it is when you have to do it every night....(laughing)  Today I am sharing some "Post-it-Note" holders. These were from 12 days of Halloween.
When I saw these I thought they would be cute as a
Halloween candy holder. I started with Halloween
paper but never made it back into my craft room to finish.

Have a great fall week!

Fall Baby Shower

Happy Monday! Is it Fall yet or still summer? The weather in Albuquerque has been so beautiful and warm. My trees are not sure if they should be changing colors or stay green....LOL Today I'm sharing some items I made for my sisters baby shower. She wanted couples "Fall" shower in her back yard. We had the shower the first week of  October with 85 guest. We were so busy making food, decorating, entertaining that I didn't take any pictures of the actual shower.  Boo Hoo.(sad face)
I took Mason jars and wrapped burlap
around them. Added dried raffia and flowers.
Fall flowers were added to these jars for the tables.

These mason jars were the lighting for
the tables. I added pop corn inside and put
battery operated lighting. 

Jovonna didn't want any of the (old fashion) games
you play at a baby shower. So we did the "Write
a Message on the Diaper" I found this saying on
Pinterest and thought is was cute. 

These are the props for the Baby Photo booth. I order
some of these on line and others I made.  
I decorated these baskets with a scarecrow family.
We added snack foods for the guest. 
This cake was for Jovonna.

This cake was for Mike.

My Dad carved these pumpkins. The baby pumpkins
says "baby noodles". That's the nickname for the baby. 

This is the photo booth. I made the "Baby Love"
banner and added the burlap  on top of white curtains.

Since it was outside and we were not sure if it was
going to rain we added a cover over the booth.
Snacks and drinks

Hope you have a super great day. Thanks for letting me share.
