Card Set

I made this card set with images I recieved in a swap. The box is made from a recycled sample I recieved in the mail. Not sure why the pictures are loading sideways? Sorry about that! ~Carol

Craft Show Items

These are just a few of the items I had done for the Lavendar Festival. Sorry for the poor quality. I realized I forgot to take pics and had to use my camera phone.

Paper, Paper, and More Paper!!!

So on The Greeting Farm blog today, Marie asked the question....How do you store paper. It just so happens I spent Mother's Day organizing my stuff and reminding myself of what I had. What I have is WAY too much paper!! But anyway, I digress... I was able to get these grey totes from my mother's hardware store. They fit my paper perfect so that they stand up and I can flip thru them. I sorted them out by coordinating sheets into 12X12 ziplock bags (I purchased them at I also have somepage kits and all my Christmas Papers in one of those rolling trays with the 5 clear bins in them - I told you I had too much!!
For my small papers I have them in one of those stacker containers. Here are some pics!

Birthday Girl!

Here is my big girl on her big day! We had so much fun! Nick and Charli made rainbow cupcakes the night before the party. On the day of her party each guest had an apron, a chef hat (handmade from tissue and posterboard), and a plate of decorations ~ they each decorated their own chef hat and cupcake! They also got to decorate 3 sugar cookies...all which got put in a cute cupcake box to take home with them. They all did such a great job!

A Cupcake Birthday Card

A little late in posting but here is a picture of the Cupcake Card invites I made for Charli's 7th Birthday. I made it an easel card. It was so fun to do! Since I had to make so many I colored one image ~Freaky Flutter from TGF~ scanned and printed it up. (I also used it for thank you cards).

Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop Today!

Today I am participating in my dear friend's blog hop for her digital stamp company Fresh Brewed Designs. When I got the images so much ran through my head. These new images can be used for so many things, not just cards. Unfortunately I only had time to make 2 cards. I plan to use more of the images to make recipe cards and scrapbook pages!

This image "One Tough Cookie" I made to give to a friend that is dieting. Inside the card I put "Stay Strong".

This second card I made with the "Want Fries With That Shake" image. As soon as I seen this one I thought of a birthday party at McDonalds. It would be a great image for invitations or scrap page of a burger party! Too cute!

If you have come to me first, you need to start this hop with MARY then follow the blogs to the end. There is a secret saying again for this hop and my word for you is THAT. Have fun checking out all the creations! Your next stop is HEATHER and you get the last word for your phrase and the email to send it to. And get on over to Heather's Shop to see all her fun designs!

A yummy suprise...

It has been a busy week over here. I am currently planning a birthday party for my daughter, trying to get crafts finished for a craft show that I am doing in April, spring cleaning for a garage sale at our local trade center, and then a sudden death of a dear family friend. We will miss you dearly Brian - love to his family and my best friend!

On a better note, I finally got to go see Alice in Wonderland. Even in crazy MadHatter get up, my boyfriend Johnny is so handsome! I really enjoyed this movie, it was pretty darn good! I ate WAY too much popcorn and soda though...I don't think I will weigh in tomorrow, lol! And that being said leads me to my title! Tomorrow there is some hopping to be had and it shall be yummilicious!! See you in the morning. Have a great night. Go to bed early to catch up on your time change! Goodnight all!

Look Who's Three!!

I can't believe my little guy is now 3 years old! Time goes by too fast. Here are a few pics from his 3 year photo shoot!

A little Suprise...

I can not believe I forgot to post about this fun project I made my friend Shanon's suprise baby shower. I have seen these done and have wanted so badly to try. Here is my take on the Diaper Cake.

Blue, Orange, Green, and Brown?? Oh MY!

My good friend Cass challenged us this week over on CafeMom. She gave us this picture as our color inspiration for a card.....

This is the card I came up with. I really loved the colors together and may find myself using them again.

Sweet Sketch for a Wedding

I had a request for a wedding card so I used this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday to make it. I loved the layout of this sketch and knew it would be perfect for an easel card. I used my SU Blooming w/Happiness stamp set with miscellaneous card stock. I colored the image with my KohINoor pencils and OMS, then topped it off with Stickles, ribbon, and bling.

Crafty Saturday - Love it!!

Since I have been under the weather the last few days...I have been told to relax today! Hubby and kids are gone, so what better way to relax than to craft? So I chose to do the Farm Fresh Friday Color Challenge at The Greeting Farm. The color palette was Chocolate, Kraft, and Guava. I found the colors in my paper pile and found the perfect image! This was such a fun card and I love how it turned out.

My The Force Be With You!

It is a certain someone's birthday coming up very soon and I used the Case of The Curious Card Challenge at TGF to make this Jedi card for him. I needed a reason to buy this lil I found one! Ha! I am working on a Star Wars pop up for the inside... something with the writing "A long time a galaxy far far away..." That is not done yet, but I will show you as soon as I finish!

Cupcake Craft Challenge

I decided to do this challenge of the week at Cupcake Craft Challenge. They have a great challenge blog, head on over and check it out!! The challenge this week was to keep it simple. I made this Bella card for it. I used embossed paper and the Heart Bella. Pretty simple card that can be used for a wedding or anniversary.
****I made Top 5 on this challenge, so excited! Thanks for the kudo's ladies!!

Purple Madness

I have a good friend that is having a new baby very soon and she is loving the color purple for the baby room. So I made her a set of cards so that she can send out Thank You's after the baby is born. I made these with my new Wild Thing stamp set from TGF!

I made this Stinking cute card for a challenge in our Cute Critters Sketch Challenge in Cafe mom!

Exploding Box

I made another Exploding Box. I love making these. This one was made with papers from my DCWV Spring Glitter Cardstack.
