Just Kidding

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a card I made for one of my TOPS friends. According to her, she turned 39 again. (laughing) I thought this SU "Just Kidding" stamp set was perfect for her. I was trying to beat the mail man so the card was made very quick and simple. 
This is an older stamp set but it has
some cute sayings in it. 

Inside the card.

Happy 29th birthday to all my 110 lb. friends....hee hee Have a good day!

Scarecrow bag

Happy Tuesday! How is everyone doing today? Are you enjoying the cool Fall weather? I love this time of the year. I dug out my fall color paper and decided to make this Scarecrow bag. He came out really cute. 
The face and hat are both cut using the Top Note die cut.

The hat is made from burlap paper. 
Enjoy your day!

Heartfelt Creations

Happy Monday! I know we are into the Fall season and I should be making Fall cards, but since I still had my color pencils out I decided to make some bright flower cards. I used the Heartfelt Sun Kissed Fleur stamp and Die set and Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls. 
I stamped the cards with the Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls
stamp set and colored them in.

On a separate sheet of CS, I made some 
extra flowers to add a 3-D look to some of the flowers.
to each card. 

This card was made to be mailed by leaving 
the flower layering flat. 

The second card I used Heartfelt Creations'
 flower shaping tools to shape the flower.
I then added Crystal Lacquer to all the flowers.

It changed the color of the flowers and made
all the colors blend very well.  

I love this stamp set. 
Have a wonderful Fall day. God Bless.

Birthday Butterfly

Happy October Monday!  Today I am sharing a birthday card I made using the Stampin Up stamp set "Butterfly Basics". I saw this card on Pinterest  thought it was beautiful.  You can check it out at: 
I used Prismacolor pencils to color
in the flower and butterfly. 

Can you see the light gray background?

I added ribbon and white sequins. 

This was a fun card and so relaxing to color.  Have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday! It's the last Monday in September. Where does the time go? Hope your enjoying the start of our Fall weather. One of my brother-in-laws celebrated his birthday last week, so I made him this birthday card. I have a hard time making masculine cards. I want to add ribbon, flowers, bling and bright pretty paper....(laughing) All the fun stuff on a card. I always tend to lean towards browns and blacks when I make a card for the guys. I guess I could use blues and grays...
All the paper was from my scrap pile.
The only stamp I used was the Ferris
Wheel from SU "Feeling Sentimental"
(It was one of the stamps set I got for a buck)
And the Happy Birthday.

I inked distressed all the edges. 

I used foam adhesive on the bottom squares.
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you have a super great day!

Wedding Card

Happy Monday. We had a out-of-town Wedding last week. This is the card I made.
I used Heartfelt Creation's die cuts. 

Each corner is a separate die cut.  I
glued them into each corner. I then cut
a different floral die cut and added it
to the middle. 

I added glittered hearts, ribbon and a flower.

Inside the card
Have a wonderful week!

Remembering 9/11

Happy Monday! How is everyone doing today? I have been a busy bee with the grandchildren, my TOPS group and a trip to Washington DC and New York City.  After visiting the 9/11 memorial in person, I realize life is short and we need to be kind to everyone around us. Cherish our families and friends everyday! Today I am sharing some butterfly cards I made for a few of my TOPS friends. We are doing a butterfly contest so I thought the butterfly cards would be perfect. 
I used a butterfly embossing folder for the
white background. 

I stamped and cut out lots of butterflies.
I added some glitter to make them sparkle. 

I made them 3-D by adding butterflies
on top of each other. 
Hope your week is filled with beautiful butterflies!

Pirate Theme

Happy Monday! Can't believe this is the last Monday of August. Today, I am sharing some gift card holders I made for my TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) group. We had our new Officers Installation and I usually make all the themed props. This year I didn't have the time. I wanted to make something so I made gift card holders. 
This is the first one I made. I got the instructions


These are the ones I made for my TOPS
group. The theme was "Pirates" I bought
Hats, Patches, Mustaches, and treasure boxes

for the installation.

Inside the gift card holders. 

Here we are in our pirate gear.
Thank you for sharing some of your time with me today! Have a wonderful week!

Great Buys

Happy Monday! On August 5th the annual "De-Stash" sale was held at the Jewish Community Center.  Of course my neighbor Heather and I went.  We told ourselves we need nothing, but it won't hurt to just go look. Are you all laughing by now? Of course, we didn't just go look, we bought. We got there early and as we were standing in line a lady came up and asked if there was a fee to go inside. The lady in front of us said "No, it's free to enter but it cost you to leave".....LOL So true!!! 
These are the items I purchased. The prices
 were so good I couldn't pass them up 

This was my best buy. For one dollar per bag
I received Stamp n Up: ink pad,  the re-inker,
stamp set,  2 rolls of ribbon, card stock
and marker. Can you believe that?
I got the last two. The lady before me
had purchased five of them. 

The SU Stamp sets were only $1.00 each. I got
10 ink pads (all but 2 brand new) for $5.00.
This is Heather's stuff.  She got some really good
deals also. 

The yarn was .25¢ each. 
We had so much fun and what GREAT deals!!  We saw a few of our crafting and sewing friends there. I am sure you got some great deals too. Happy Crafting and sewing!

Step Card

 Happy Monday! How is everyone today? Hope you're having a GREAT day! My son Robert had a birthday last week and I wanted to make him a card. I have these cute tool die sets so I decided on a Step Card tool box.  There are a lot of "Step Cards" out there and some of them are really cool.  Have you tried making one? They are a lot of fun to make. Hope you try one.

My letters for "Robert" aren't to straight...(laughing)

I used foam adhesive for the draws to make them
look as if they were open.

I added a pocket on the inside so I could insert money.

Enjoy the rest of your week. Find some time for crafting.

Friends and Crafting

Happy August Monday! Not sure where this year has gone but it's almost the end of the year and I've done no Christmas shopping yet. Have you been to Hobby Lobby? All the Christmas stuff is out and ready to craft with.  I guess I better get busy....(smiling) My neighbor, Heather and I got together and made a few cards. It was nice to craft with her again. 
This is the first card we made. I took a picture of her
card because mine came out so messy and awful!
I felt like I was in Kindergarten again....LOL

Inside the card
Heather handed me the cut-out paper
and told me to decorate it. So I added
 the twine and flower. 

Beautiful paper don't you think? 

Inside the card. 

I love this card. The words are a
die cut. I just added the flowers and bling.
Easy Breezy. 

I left the inside blank.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!
