Some Decorated Pails

Well, I've had these pails for months now. I just couldn't think of anything to do with them until now. Thanks to Patty Bennett I finally did it! I went to Patty Bennett's downline meeting last Saturday and saw the pails she made and that was it!! I had to make some for myself. You can see Patty's pails here: Patty's Stamping Spot: My Snowflake Die Cut Project, & the Big Shot is NOW Ava and here: Patty's Stamping Spot: Fun Tins!
Stay tuned for more posts...I've got the card I made for our trades at the meeting plus all the other fabulous trades I received!!
Thanks for visiting me today.
Have a great day!

3-D Flower Basket Card

When I first saw the new Baskets and Blooms Die for our new Big Shot I immediately thought of this card. Of course you can make the 3-D basket itself with lots of goodies inside but I wanted to incorporate this die cut into a card. It was very easy to create. Before gluing the basket down to your card base cut the bottom die in half and adhere it to one side of the basket. Then glue the sides down to the card base. I used the long curved pieces to create the stems of the flowers and the "ribbon" on the hat which were cut with the same die. The complete recipe is below the pictures. I hope you like this card and if you would like to recreate it and have any questions just let me know.

Have a wonderful day!

15 Year Anniversary and a little rant about Kindergarten homework...

This is the card I made for the most special person in my life...my Husband of 15 years!! Yep, that's right, 15 years. It doesn't feel like 15 years though. I feel like it was just last year that we got married. I can remember it like it was yesterday. It was the most awesome day ever! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! I love you my Husband! Just in case you can't read the sentiment here's what it says:
the time to be happy is now. the place to be happy is here. WITH YOU!

Have a wonderful week and thanks again for hanging in there with me and my sporadic posts! I'll try to be better. We are just getting in the routine of school. Kindergarten that is. We had homework in preschool but this year is a lot different. We are getting quite a bit and for those of you that have son's in Kindergarten, I hope you don't know the work it is to get your child to color like I know. My son absolutely hates to color. I know hate is a strong word but this little man just does not like any aspect of coloring. That is, with color crayons. Now give him one of my Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write Markers and he goes to town!! LOL! It's just the crayon thing. I don't understand it but we are working through it and we will prevail!! :0) Have you ever heard of 5 pages of homework in Kindergarten? Well, normally it's 3 but today we had 5!! Yes, 5! It's ok though. I love sitting with him while he does his work. I just love watching his little hands write and color. Ok, enough of that. Just know that I appreciate your sticking with me!

Birthday RAK's!!!!

Well, first of all I would like to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU to all of you that sent me a special Birthday email or phone call. They all meant so very much to me and I appreciate you taking the time to send them and to call!

Next...I would like to send a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to those of you that sent me your beautiful hand made creations!! Let me just say that they just made my birthday so very special.

I sincerely appreciate all of your friendships and am so very thankful for you.

Here is a card I received from Edra Jandro. She is a wonderful friend and I am so thankful she is a part of my life! Just look at the detail on this card. The Filigree brad, the chipboard star, the scallops, the DSP!! I love everything about this card!! Edra, you are so incredibly talented. Thank you for sharing your talent with me!

This next card AND special treats are from a very special friend I met online. Lorie Ames! She is so full of inspiration and creativity. If you get a chance, you should definitely check out Lorie's blog . She's got some incredible projects for you to see. Just check out this card!! This birthday bella is too darn cute. And she looks just like me!! HA HA HA I wish I was that thin!! :0) But seriously, look at the close up picture...there's sparkle EVERYWHERE on this card. The balloons, the party hat, the cupcake, her pants and EVEN her shoes have sparkle!! I just LOVE anything that sparkles!! Yes, I am a glitter girl, I've always got glitter on my face! :0) Thank you so much Lorie!

And...here's the one my most crafty Mother-In-Law sent me. Now you don't know crafting until you meet my MIL!! This incredible lady is the absolute craftiest person I know. From decorating every inch of her home to making every gift, card or note the most special. She always makes sure the presentation is just as wonderful as the gift inside. Just look at this card. Every piece of this card is paper pieced!! I know you can't see the shimmer of the gold ribbon and the gold on the basket but in real life this card just shines!! Thanks "Nana" for always remembering me on my special day!

September Downline Meeting Make & Takes

Here are the cards we made at our September downline meeting. We had a great time hanging out and stamping. There were 4 of us at this meeting. I'm hoping for more attendance at future meetings so, if you're one of my downline ladies, I hope you can join us next month!
I hope you enjoy these wonderful cards. These ladies are amazing and I look forward to each meeting to see what everyone comes up with.
Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by to visit me!

Edit to Add: I totally forgot to let you know that I case'd this card from Kristina Werner. I did use different supplies and her's is a gift card holder but I wanted to be sure I gave Kristina credit for the design.



I hope all of you Grandparents are having a wonderful Grandparents Day!!

Here are the cards we sent for this special day!
