Past, Present, Future kisses

I made a bunch of these wedding favors for my web store in a few colors. Each one has 3 Hershey's kisses on the inside of the triangle. SO easy to make, affordable and super cute!!
Thanks for stopping in today, see you again tomorrow!

YES! I am TRULY crazy!!

Well I stamped the tree after I had colored the rubber with my SU Markers and then I was just going to trim around the outside of the tree. It turns out I hated how it looked so I decided to see what it would look like if I cut a little more...I like it even if it did take about 30 minutes to do it. I layered it on some SU papers from "Walk in my Garden" which will be available in the Spring Mini. I also used a stamp that is in the upcoming mini called "Oval All" and punched it out with a matching punch in the same Mini. Then I stamped and colored the butterfly again, cut it out and popped it up on the card. I have to say this is one of my Favorites in a long time and I am never giving it away...haha.
I also just realized that this is an ALL Stampin Up Card...hmm that almost never happens for me. See you tomorrow!

A Little Orange For Ya!

For this card I trimmed the base of the card front around the scalloped portion instead of having a basic card, I kind of like it! Crocheted flowers of course! These one My Mom actually made.
That's it for today, I have a book to get back to. Yes, it is Twilight....I knew you were gonna ask!
See you tomorrow!

LSC #33... a little late

Sorry I am late, I have been sick with a head cold and didn't have a bunch of mojo. My Dayquil must have kicked in today because I finally got some stuff done.
This week was Char's turn to pick these wonderful colors!!! So reminds me of Easter, yet I made no Easter cards...LOL

This first card I actually like now that I have stared at it long enough...Lol I guess it had to grow on me. All Supplies are Papertrey Ink except my crocheted flowers and the American Craft Brad (which matches almost perfectly to PTI Ocean Tides)

This one is.....not exactly my fav at all, but I am showing you anyway.
All Supplies Papertrey, except the crocheted flowers and the Rhinestone Brads from Recollections.

This last one has a bit more color then it was supposed to but I liked it and I am showing you anyway. Supplies from Papertrey Ink, Making Memories & Stampin Up

I am sure have already done this but if not go see my girls and what they made....great stuff I have to say! Don't forget to link up your challenge results so we can all have a look!

So you know the basics. Layers of nesties, embossed raspberry layer and I used my new Beyond Basic Borders Stamps Set {{{LOOOOOOOVE IT}}} and of course, how could I resist using some of my new flowers that I made from my new colors.

Damask Anniversary

Today is My Oldest Brother's Anniversary. His wife, Rhonda is the one who I blogged about in January. She won the trip to Jamaica. Anyways that aside today They have been Married for 14 years (wow I feel Old, I remember meeting her like it was just yesterday) They don't read my blog so that should still give me time to get the card to them.
I feel I need to add....the little crocheted flower is in a color that will be available soon in my Etsy Store. I just received the colors so I am working on some sets. In the meantime if you want a custom order you can always email me. This particular flowers a fantastic match in color to Papertrey Inks Raspberry Fizz. Also coming soon, Chocolate, Copper mist, Wasabi, Pumpkin & Melon!!!

Happy St. Patty's Day

This is just a simple little nugget tin I wrapped for St. Patty's Day. Some friends and I contribute things to make a basket for each holiday to be a raffle at the local Sylvan Learning center!
Have a great day and don't drink too much Green beer or get pinched too many times!

LSC #31..Again

This card was fun! The colors from Fridays LSC I ended up liking so much you may get sick of seeing them. I used the Background Basics Retro set, fresh Alphabet and a stamped bird image that I had from Char!

Slice Butterfly

This is another Card I submitted this month to Cards Magazine! I cut 2 flourishes using my slice and turned then around and made then into a butterfly. I LOVE this card and will likely never part with it..lol. Card Maker not Card Giver, right Char?!

Here is a close up of the butterfly with the crystals through it. I cut pieces of my say it with crystals from prime to make the swirl.

Beside the sentiment I added a flower that I made and the crystal fit right through!

A Sketch..mytimess27

I decided to start doing some more sketches with my time, so what better then a "My Time Saturday Sketch" This is Sketch 27! I Love it.
I used a white card base and then cut strips of pattern paper for underneath. I used the dark chocolate bitty dots paper from Papertrey Ink and a lovely damask pattern paper called Sophisticated by Fancy Pants Designs. Then I layered Raspberry Fizz and Stampers Select for my Sentiments. I used the friendship quote from the Green Thumb Set and the "Seriously!" from Handwritten Notes. I also used the dotted square from Borders & Corners Squares to frame it, All from Papertrey Ink. Then I used a marvy punch (the blue one) to punch my flower. Then I crumbled it up, straightened it out and added my Crocheted Chocolate Brown Flower and a rhinestone Brad to the center. The blue ribbon across the bottom is dashes, dots and Checks from Michael's and the twill tabs at the top from Papertrey Ink.
This was a fun Sketch to do!!! I shall have to keep this up. I also want to add that I have the new colors I order in Crochet Cotton. I will be updating my Etsy Store soon and you all will be the first to know when I do. Colors Coming Soon: Chocolate, Hot Pink, Wasabi, Melon, Pumpkin possibly more!!

Just another card

Just another card that I made and submitted to Cards Magazine this month...denied! hahaha
See ya tomorrow...maybe

So I then pulled out the papers and set then on my desk, and suddenly it came to me! I Love the combo, so much in fact that I made TWO cards, but you only get to see one today. :) So this is my card and Thank you Wendy for the Great Colors.

All supplies are from Papertrey, with the exception of my crocheted flower. Oh and you HAVE to use buttons and I wanted to point out that the center of my flower has 2 of the melon berry buttons stacked on top of each other and then topped with a rhinestone.

Now go visit the other ladies to see what they made, I know I am excited to see!!

Flower Bouquet

Want to know the POWER of Crocheted Flowers? ok, I hate purple most of the time but I had some flowers that I made that go well with the lavender moon or Plum Pudding paper from Papertrey Ink. So now I am just in love with this little flower bouquet card!!

I made the base of this card from Plum Pudding c/s, matted with Lemon Tart and then put my flowers on white. My flowers are the colors I am calling, lilac, lemon and moss and I neatly tucked a piece of the leafy vine stuff from Papertrey Ink that Char bought me. It fits so perfectly!! I also used my Plum Pudding Swiss dot ribbon from papertrey Ink and a scalloped trim from making memories!

Here is the inside of my card finished with double layers of paper, more ribbon and another precious flower! If you want to order any flowers you can do so by visiting my Etsy Store, I can't wait to see you there!!
