Thoughts of days gone by...

This sympathy card turned out sweet and simple with retired colors of Midnight Muse and Bravo Burgundy.  I added the fabric flowers with the pearls on them as a nice simple touch to accent this pretty design series paper.

I'm Heading In One Direction...

This card is for those boy band fan girls...my mom works with a bunch of junior high girls and she is always needing a unique card for them, and they LOVE the One Direction boys, so this card was made specially for one of her junior high fan girls.  I love the sparkly paper along with the perfect plum card stock.

A place where everybody knows your name

So I have to admit my coffee addiction...I love coffee, I love the beans, I love the foam, I love it a Latte'  I love Latte's!  Starbucks is my absolute favorite coffee place, they know me by name and they know my order.  Gotta love a place where everybody knows your name :)  As a self admitted coffee addict, that means I have friends who are also coffee addicts, so this card makes a great birthday card for one of those friends.

Great Catch!

Cajun Craze is the signature color for the set up on this card.  This Father's Day card is for that special dad that loves the outdoors and fishing.  The inside sentiment says, "You're my greatest catch!"  How sweet is that?

Thoughts of you...

Chocolate Chip card stock, chocolate chip ribbon, modern label punch, express yourself hostess stamp set, along with these leather punched flowers make an elegant card.  I like to send a message in my card on a piece of notepaper so that the recipient of the card can use the card again to send to someone else.  Recycling made easy :)

Garden Green and Daffodil Delight are the perfect colors for this sunny birthday card to go along with these sunflower embellishments.  The chalk board is stamped with the Happy Birthday sentiment in Whisper White from Stampin' Up!

Winter is over!

Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay along with some silver glimmer paper, really make this Confirmation card sparkle!  The ds paper is from this past year's Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, but it works great for this card as well.  Layering on your card can help make all the difference when you really want it to stand out.

What's your story?

Pool Party and Summer Starfruit card stock match this retired ds paper perfectly.  With the kitchen theme it makes a great welcome to your new home card.  The pool party brads are retired, but I love them so much with the little polka dots on them :)

It's Felicity!

This american girl doll birthday card is so pretty and girly with these fabric flowers added.  I believe this doll is Felicity and she is dressed in a period costume.  Even though it has my phone shadow on the side, the card still turned out pretty darn cute!

Enjoy the Tassel...

Isn't this little guys just the cutest?  The Stampin' Up! owl punch is so versatile, you can make him up into almost anything.  He kind of reminds me of Mr. Potato Head as he turns out to be different each time depending on how you want to dress him up.  I added the graduation cap sticker and used basic black and island indigo card stock from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment is from the Pure Gumption stamp set from Stampin' Up! as well.  To order your very own stamp set click here

The Craft Room Is Finished!

After months and months of work by my wonderful husband, I finally have a completed craft room.  It is so nice to have a little space to call my own.  Most of the storage units you see are from StampnStorage, they work out just great.  My next challenge is going to be how to store all of my card stock and DS paper.  I feel a shopping trip to Ikea coming soon :)
