Husbands Birthday

Good morning! I made this card for my Husband's birthday which is on Halloween. I swap off every year between a Fall theme and a spooky theme. This worm from the Mini Monsters cart just cracks me up, and is one of the reasons I bought the cart in the first place. He has such a shocked look on his face that I thought it would make a cute birthday card. The sign was punched with the M.S. punch Drippy Goo and the spiders were punch with a Studio G punch that I bought at Walmart for a dollar.The inside was done the same way, stamped, and I hand drew the web.Of course I couldn't let this one go by without entering it in a challenge at
Thanks for peeking!

Turkey Day

Hey Ya'll! Just a quick post to share this card which was inspired by a stamp that I saw in Joanns last week. The turkey was cut from Simply Charmed, and the grass is a M.S. punch. Added some buttons and some bakers twine and google eyes, and there you have it! I'm off to Hobby Lobby to look at their new papers! Thanks for peeking!

Autumn leaves

Hello again! Two posts in one day,whew, I'm on a roll! This card was inspired by my absolutely favorite season of the year! I love Fall! I wish for it to hurry and get here every year, and here in the South it usually arrives in late October or early November. This year it seems to have come early(here's hoping) because we have had our temps in the 80's for a couple of weeks now. Anyway, I love just the feel in the air, the crunch of leaves under my feet, etc. The tree was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up, and the leaves are a Martha Stewart punch that I cut the individual leaves from. The frame is a Cuttlebug die called Pearl Frame, and the sentiment was hand printed on the outside and computer generated on the inside. I added a twine and raffia bow and sprayed it with glimmer. This card will be entered in the Monday Challenge #26 at My Craft Spot. Thanks for peeking!

Bee-lated Birthday

Hi everyone! I made this card for my Aunt for her birthday, which I forgot. Both of my parents, my son, and my Grandson's birthdays are all in the same month, including my Aunt's, and her's kind of slipped through the cracks! I used the cute little Sizzix bee, and added vellum for his wings, and a glitter brad for his nose. I embossed the mat with a cuttlebug folder called Gratitude, and used a Martha Stewart punch for the border. Added a twill ribbon bow, stamped the sentiment, and put a flower in the corner. The inside says: "I be sorry I missed your Birthday." I am entering this in the Birthday Sundaes Challenge #27. You can check them out at

Toothpick Flags

Hello everyone! It seems like I have been away forever! I guess I just needed a little break. Over at the Create Blog the challenge for this week is to incorporate toothpick flags onto a card or project. I had never made these, so I thought I would give it a try. I cut my flags from Birthday Bash, as well as the inside sentiment which says "It's Your Day!" I rolled them onto the toothpicks with a little bit of glue, then added the mini bubble letters to the center. I ruffled up some crepe paper ribbon,and added it behind the satin ribbon. The rosette is a Tim Holtz die mounted on a circle that I fussy cut, and the brad is one I had in my stash. Pretty simple, but it turned out cute I think. Thanks for peeking!

Sew Sweet

Hi everyone! Today I have a card to show you that I made for the Craft Spot Monday Challenge #21. You are supposed to have stitching , either real or faux, on you card. I used my new Tim Holtz die called Sewing Room and cut out the dress form, spools, and button. I added canvas to the body of the dress form, and Glossy Accents to the stand. I hung a scissors charm around the neck, added thread to the spools, and topped it off with a "Crinkle Ribbon" bow which you can find at My Craft Spot. The sentiment was done with my Design Runner. The inside of the card simply says "Thank You". Thanks for looking!
