Yellow Polka Dot Bikini - Nifty Fifties

I have never entered a challenge before. Today I decided to enter this card in the CARDZTV "Summer Fun" Challenge. 

This card sure made it feel like summer!  It is so hot outside, even getting in the pool during the day isn't fun.  It's like sitting in a pot on the stove, I'd rather stay inside and make cards.  Evening time is when the pool is just about right.

I think the bottom may need some buttons but I have really big or non matching buttons right now.  Adding it to my list :)

"For you" with Nifty Fifties

I would still like to add glitter to the little star.  That requires a trip to Michael's for a glitter pen.

Peachy Keen Stamps - Paper Doll Dress Up

Today I had a plan... then remembered I needed to make an anniversary card.  So, change of plans went from Nate's ABC's to Paper Doll Dress Up.  I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge because I recently recieved an awesome surprise from my mom, she surprised me with a set of stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps. 
I love the little faces!  Thank you mom!   This card was made in a hurry and late at night.  I sure hope it looks alright!

U R MY Sunshine - Nate's ABC's and Elegant Edges

Today I am using Nate's ABC's.  I love the images from this cartridge but haven't used it much.  Think I will make a few more today, if time permits.

Making the world a brighter place

Using Create a Critter and Elegant Edges I made this little card yesterday.
It is fun to use my cartridges and the images I haven't used in the past.  I am also trying to use a lot of the paper from other projects.

Stretch Your Imagination and Elegant Edges

Hello!  Today I made some fun cards using the Stretch Your Imagination and Elegant Edges cartridges.  Hope you enjoy the pictures! On the cake card I used an Action Wobble so the cake wiggles.  It is quite fun!

Read "Owl about it" and more!

I needed to make room so I used more scraps to make these cute little cards!  "Read owl about it" 

This one needed a stamp but I couldn't decide on one so it was left blank for now. 

This idea of the spinning card I found on line.  Probably from Mary at CardzTV, but I honestly cannot remember. 
I apologize if that is incorrect.  

Valentine's Day Card. 


The white cardstock with the butterflies on it was an idea in I believe Craft Maker Magazine.  It was fun to do and then I used a punch on one and that made it!  The blue card is a quick one I made for some co-workers.  I stamped inside with just a simple "Thank you"

Christmas Tags and Caramel Corn

I realized I had not posted these pictures from December 2011.  I work at a school and thought it would be nice to give something to the staff. I was in the baking mood but didn't want to give them more cookies than they had already received.  So, I thought about it and decided caramel corn would be a nice treat for them.  Then I couldn't just give it to them in a bag, it had to be a pretty bag.  The bad then of course would need a decoration to make it look spiffy, here are some pictures of the end result. 

My 1st paper bag album - Happy Father's Day 2012

Due to being on a tight budget I needed to figure out something to do for my dad that didn't cost too much.  I also wanted to give him something meaningful and from the heart.  I searched paper bag albums on you tube and found so many ideas.  It was great.  I decided to make an album, my 1st album by the way for my dad.

Grand dogs card - Happy Father's Day 2012

A card to my dad from his "granddogs" I loved this shirt idea I found on line(CardzTV with Mary).  The buttons are brads I had bought about a year ago to use for something else, which I didn't end up making.  Glad, I bought them though as I was out of time and didn't have time to go buy little buttons.
