5th Birthday....


Happy Thursday!! Can you believe there are only two days left of the year? If I don't get on again before the new year I would like to wish every a very "HAPPY NEW YEAR"!

Today is one of my grandson's 5th birthday. I can't believe it has been that long since he was born. I can remember the day as if it was yesterday. His father is in the Air Force and they were stationed in Alaska at the time. My husband I were lucky enough to be able to be there when he was born and I was in the delivery with our daughter and her husband. It is so wonderful to see a new life coming into this world. Of course I would love to see Alaska in the spring or summer and not the middle of winter. It is a beautiful place even with all the snow and temps below freezing.

On to my card for today. I had the idea in my head using my nesties for some time now and decided it was time to implement it. I took my large pinking circles and classic rounds to make the rings. I just put the circles inside the pinking circles to cut them at the same time. I then wound up with the rings and circles. I used my daughter's PTI Sunshine impression plate on one of our craft days and used that as my background. It doesn't seem to show up in the pic. But it does make a statement, I think. I stamped the 5 from Fresh Alphabet and stamped it on one of the circles and but a dome sticker on top to help it stand out more. I then popped it up. The base of the card is PTI Blueberry Sky. I used the double ended banner for the sentiment that was from Birthday Basics. The vintage buttons are Ripe Avacado tied with Button Twine.

Happy Birthday Wy!! We will see you Saturday for your party!!
Have a wonderful day,

Moxie Fab Glitter is Glam Challenge...

Posted by Picasa

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a terrific Christmas!
I decided to play along with Moxie Fab "Glitter is Glam" Challenge. You need to use glitter on your project and with this card I glittered up the butterfly.
I am so late with this card. My stepson's wife's birthday was last week and with all that was going on it slipped my mind. I had just received my winnings from the Papertrey Ink November release and wanted to play. I decided to use my YOF: Mums stamp set. I colored it with copics and then the butterfly is from Butterfly Dreams and stamped with Smokey Shadow and decided to glam it up with SU! Dazzling' Diamonds.
I used Martha Stewart' corner and border punches for the Raspberry Fizz background piece. I also used Raspberry Fizz ribbon and used some pearls to decorate it some.
I popped this up with foam adhesive dots.

That is it for me today.
Hope you are having a wonderful start to your week.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas...



Can you believe that the day after tomorrow is Christmas!! This year has just flown by. This isn't the best picture but I hope you can see it ok. I started off with vintage cream CS for my base. The deer (Rudolph) is stamped on Fine Linen. I used vellum for the snow and then used some Martha Stewart tinsel glitter to give it some sparkle. The tree is Pinefeather felt using PTI tree die and then cut them in half. I used a spica olive glitter pen and ruler to make the border around my main image. The sentiment is from Signature Christmas.

I am going to keep this short. I need to get to some last minute baking.
Hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends.

For you With love...

Happy Friday!!! Boy, am I sure glad this week is over. I had every intention to post this earlier but then I got sick and it hit me like a rock. I am just starting to feel better today. I hate being sick!!
I made these envelopes for either gift cards or even money. I started out with making the envelopes with SU! white and my Martha Stewart scoring board. I distressed the edges with Vintage Cream ink. The trees are from "Believe" stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I first stamped them with Smokey Shadow ink and then went to work with my copics. The gifts are also from the same set. The hand stamp image is from the 2010 holiday tags set. I used Fillable Frames #6 and stamped the "For You, With Love" from my new Wplus9 stamp set. I will write the receiver's name on there. It was also distressed with Vintage Cream ink.

Here is a close up look:

Cookie Exchage

Happy Monday! It sure has been hard for me to get back into blogging again with such a long break. I hope to remedy that and start blogging more often.

I went to a cookie exchange party this weekend. It was sure nice to be able to get out and be with other women just to chat and enjoy each other and meet new people. Of course being able to sample so many different cookies and get a few recipes was an added bonus.

I made some very simple cookies with a recipe that my daughter gave me a little while back. I pretty much left it until the last minute to make them so I needed something that was quick. I actually made the recipe cards before I made the cookies so of course I needed to make them now. I printed the recipe on my printer and adhered it to PTI Dk Chocolate (3 1/2 X 5) and used my corner punch to punch the corner out of Itty Bitty Stars pattern paper. Tied a twine bow and glued it to the corner. I masked a sentiment from Enjoy the Ride set to get the word "Enjoy" alone, then used a white smooch to puts the dots on each side. Not to much embellishment so it could fit in a recipe box. They seemed to go over pretty well.

Happy Birthday X 2 !!!!!

Posted by Picasa

Good Morning!! As you can tell by the post name I have two birthdays to share with you today. My two oldest daughters have the same birthday. No they are not twins. As my oldest daughter would say when they were younger, "they are 1 year 1 hour and 2 minutes apart". I was always asked if I planned it that way, NO. Who would plan two birthdays in the month of December? I would always say the youngest was jealous because her big sister was having a party and so she wanted to join in on the fun. I actually left the party and delivered her within an hour of arriving at the hospital.

The above card was made for my oldest daughter. The butterfly is not a stamp. It is an iron on for embroidery. I received it from my mother-in-laws stash. I saw the idea on a blog and to the life of me I can't remember who. I wish I did so I could give credit where credit is due. I am just going to have to start writting these wonderful ideas down when I see them. Another thing I need to get into the habit of.
I added some glitter to it for some bling.

For my other card you can see it here.

Hope you both have a wonderful Birthday!!

Have a great day,
