Sprinklers Today, Costumes Tomorrow

Good Morning!

Can you believe how fast this year is going?!  I was looking out my kitchen window this morning and saw the sprinklers watering my my nice green lawn and thinking that if I blink one too many times it's going to be Halloween! So I thought I'd share a Halloween card I made last year.  Another one of those that I hung on to because I love the way it turned out.  Totally copied it from last year's Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.  I didn't have a black flower-shaped button like in the original version, so I made my own button. :)

I copied

Good morning!

I can't take credit for the idea to this card at all.  I copied it straight out of one of my recent Stampin' Success demonstrator magazines.  I love the colors. :)

Again with the Butterflies....

Here's a really quick share before I head off to work.  This is my version of a card that I saw in the Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  If I had time, I'd tell you which page, but you'll just have to search for yourself. LOL.  If you need an IB&C, let me know!

Thank You

Happy Sunday!

This is a card we did at a recent Card Class.  The ladies really seemed to like it which always makes me feel good. :)

Good Works

Good Morning!

Here's my next card to show you.  What are we up to?  Five?  Yes I think that's right.  If you follow me close enough, you know I love butterflies. ;)  The grass in this stamp set always makes me want to go find a beach somewhere!

Thanks for joining me at the Table today!  See you tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is one I actually made last year but just can't seem to give away. :)  I love that curly font!

Vintage-y Christmas

I've posted this card once before but I so love how it turned out I thought I'd revisit.  Besides that, it's going to be pushing 100 degrees here today and maybe this Christmas card will make me feel a little cooler!

A Plan to Post

Hi everyone!

I have a plan to post every day for the next 2 weeks!  I'm getting ready for my first Open House of the year and I've been making a few cards and things to display there.  So I plan to post a project a day for the next 14 days.  I won't be including much detail so if you have any questions about how I did something, please leave a comment and I'll get right back to you.  Whenever possible, I'll give credit to the person/site I found the idea.  If I don't (it's because I can't remember where), and it's your idea, thank you, thank you, thank you! I get so much inspiration from browsing the blogs of so many talented people. :)

First up, is this little bag (idea from the awesome Kimberly Van Diepen)that I'll be giving to the cute gal who will be hosting the Open House.  I'll be filling it with some chocolate of course and maybe a little bit of ribbon that she can use on a project!

Past Cards and a Photo that Apparently Needs a Nap!

Hi everyone!

I've been feeling a little out of sorts and not in the mood to craft the last couple of days so I've been perusing my iPhoto library to see if I could spark some inspiration.  I came across this photo of cards I made a year ago and I still love to look at them.  I'm usually really good at giving my creations away.  After all, that's my purpose in this whole card making hobby of mine.  To share a part of me with someone else.  But, I haven't been able to bring myself to part with these except the one with the flower which I gave to my Mom for Mother's Day last year.  I gave her that one because the turquoise button came from my Grandma's stash. I think it was once part of a sweater my Grandma used to wear.  It still even has the original thread attached! My Grandma has been gone for 25 years but I have loved holding on to a few bits and pieces of her.

Sorry you have to lay on your side to view this.  I've tried 3 times to turn it the right way but Blogger isn't cooperating this afternoon.  Maybe I'm exuding too many tired vibes. LOL

So here's a challenge to you all.  Leave me a comment and attach a link to your crafting projects of late or to a favorite project you've discovered on your blog surfing.  I need all the inspiration I can get!

Super Saturday


I thought I would share with you all what I was up to today.  Once a year, the ladies at church get together and have a big craft day.  We call it Super Saturday!  We talk, laugh, eat and craft the day away.  I usually like to make a couple of extra projects to give my mom and sister for Christmas.  This year they were able to peruse the table of sample crafts so I asked them, which was their favorite {cause I'm sly like that}.  I picked the ones they pointed out.  I hope they like them!

For my mom

For my sister

For me to display during each birthday month of the members our little family :)
