Butterfly Trio

Every month Stampin' Up! sends it's demonstrators a magazine filled with tips, tricks, techniques and wonderful inspiration. Well, when I opened this month's magazine I saw a card made by Mary Fish and knew I had to make one!! Here's my version of Mary's card. There are a few minor differences but it's basically the same. I loved the bright colors Mary used and the layout was perfect. If you want to see Mary's card and her other cards featured in our Stampin' Success magazine just click Mary's name. Thank you Mary for the inspiration.
I hope you're all having a wonderful week and remember to hug the ones you love...oh, what the heck, hug everyone and spread some happiness!!

Girly Gift Bags

Tomorrow is my son's 6th birthday party and he invited boys AND girls to his party. So, he tells me he wants a Transformer's birthday party. Ok, that's great, but what do I do for the girls gift bags? Well, I got the boys Transformer's goodies for their gift bags and couldn't give the girls that stuff. So, we (my son and I) picked out some cute little girly things for the girls. Some cute dress up stickers, some sparkly nail polish, some oh so pretty tattoos and a matching pencil to do their homework with. I'm thinking how fun it is to be able to look at girly stuff because I only have one boy so that doesn't happen very often. Then we get home and guess what I forgot to get??? The gift bags to put all this girly stuff in. No problem...I just whipped out some white lunch sacks, cut off about an inch on top, punched a little handle oval with the Large Oval punch, stamped some darling Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay flowers on them and taa daa...some cute girly gift bags. Then I think to myself, I'm so lucky to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator otherwise, I would have had to make another trip to the party store for more gift bags!!!
Thanks for coming to see me today. I hope you have a fun party to go to but if not I hope your day is a super fun day anyway!


A Tree, A Box & A Quilt

I got together with some friends a while back to stamp and here's what we made.

This first card was a make & take from Debbie Colbacchini. This box was a make & take from Katja Pastor. Katja told us she got the box template from Krista Driessen's blog. Click Krista's name to see her cute little box!

While we were talking Katja made us these two cards to go in our box. That was so sweet!!
This was the make & take I brought. My very first quilt card! So easy and fun to create.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

Some Very Special Cards!

Happy Saturday!!
Yes, I know I haven't been posting for a very long time and I am so sorry! Being that it's summer we have been SO very busy. I do have a bunch of cards I will be posting in the next few days so be sure to check back.
Ok, for today, I have a couple of very special cards to show you. The first two pictures are of cards my little man (6 year old son) has created for some very special people in his life. I can't tell you who because they read my blog and I don't want them to know who they are until they get them in the mail.
I was making some swaps and Randy always wants to create with me when I'm making cards so here's what he made. All designs are his own. Now, they're not perfect, but to me they are the most beautiful cards ever!







Next is a card I just put together for fun. I had my Eastern Blooms set out for the swaps I was creating and wanted to use some of our new Designer Series Paper (Tall Tales). Here's what I came up with. The layout is a total case from a card a friend made (Gina Cardera). I can't show you her card yet because it's one of her convention swaps but believe me...it's absolutely beautiful. After convention I will post it here.

So, thank you so much for sticking with me through these non posting times and remember to come back to see what I've been up to.
Have a fantastic weekend!!
