Caprice Button Card

I actually woke up before the boys this morning, so I had a chance to make a quickie little card! If I didn't like my sleep so much I'd do that more often!


Have a great weekend!!!

Hottie Father's Day card!

Made this cute Father's Day card for my husband . . . thought he'd get a chuckle out of it! First time I've used my Sarsparilla paper . . . might just have to order another pack of this stuff . . it is sooo stinkin' cute! Enjoy!


I think my "slump" is just due to the fact that I don't have time to actually play and create . . . I'm always rushed to finish a project or come up with cards, etc. I actually took some time yesterday to just play around with Sarsparilla . . . with no idea of what I wanted or what I was going to end up with . . . that's how I need to go into all of my projects . . . I think the outcome is always better when I work that way!

Have a great weekend!

Major slump

Father's Day is quickly approaching and I am in a MAJOR SLUMP!!! I made up these cards for an upcoming class I'm teaching at our LSS . . . but, boy, I sure do not feel like I'm in the groove lately! Ugh!



I'm going to clean up my scrapbook room and see if I can find some motivation in there! Wish me luck!

Father's Day apron card & Phuket Piggy Bank!

This is the Father's Day card my Hostess Club made. Can't take credit for the idea . . . I got it off of the CTMH bb. But I just loved it. I used the CTMH Weathered Backgrounds stamp set to do the red checkerboard on the apron because I didn't have any red checkered paper . . . but I really think it looks cute! The gals in Hostess Club really liked it!



And my girlfriend, Laura, and I are going to Phuket, Thailand in November (yes, we can't wipe the smiles off our faces!!) to visit my brother (free place to stay and our own tour guide!) . . . so she had an oatmeal box she was using for a piggy bank to save money for Thailand . . . I decided to decorate it for her! This is the finished product:


I used CTMH Laid Back Lv. 2 paper pack (perfect!) to cover the oatmeal box:


This is the top of the box:

My brother emailed me a photo of his favorite beach (Nai Harn), so I printed it out and glued it to the front of the box! Incentive enough to save money, don't you think?!?!

I'm still here . . .

it's just been a crazy week! We are in the process of selling our business and it has been all-consuming! But I managed to put together a couple of cards for my Hostess Club today so I will take photos and post them here tomorrow! Then I'll be back in the swing of things.

Thanks to those that have subscribed! I think I'll have to put together a little BLOG CANDY to celebrate my subscribers and the selling of my shop! Stay tuned . . .

Boom-Di-Ada Card

Sorry I haven't been on in a long time . . . we went camping and it's taken me a while to get back into the swing of things!

This is a card I did yesterday for a party I have to do on Monday. Made with CTMH's new Boom-Di-Ada paper pack and the May SOTM!

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
