cards and my girl

Forgot to post this adorable picture of my little lady. I took this while Alex was getting his groove on. Can you tell she loves her stuffed animals just a smidge? Love that smile.

Okay... decided I would post some of the cards. I was looking at a couple of them and the pictures were horrible. Need the sun but these ones are pretty good. At least the colors if not the cards themselves. LOL

I am working on these cards for the PTA basket raffle at our school next week. I am trying to create a bunch of different themed cards that I know I am constantly running out of. This one is a sketch by Roxie/ Rox71 at SplitCoastStampers.com (SC38) Scrap papers and I used one of my new clear stamps I got on sale a bit ago. The greens look the same in person.

The flower on this card was inspired by April 2011's Scrapbooks etc. They showed how to make it and it looked pretty simple. Not too bad for a first attempt. I used my VersaMark watermark ink pad to stamp merci onto the petals of the flower. I inked the edges with purple. I colored in the Thanks with my pencils. The brad in the center of the flower is purple.

Looky there!! My Nestie in action. So happy to be able to use them. Thanks Alien!! I stitched the paper ribbon under the scallop circle to give a little dimension. I like it.

Loving my scraps as I make these cards!! I had the fabric covered letter brads FOREVER!! So happy to be using them. This is based on one of Roxie's sketches as well... SC11.

I had fun with this one. New border punch. I stamped the Hi! onto the card and then stitched the light blue paper onto the border. Simple but fun.

Need to make a bunch more. Hoping I can buckle down and do them. I need to have all of them done before Monday at 3pm!! No pressure.... eeeeeek. Any positive vibes, words of encouragement etc you can send will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!


  1. I just think it should be illegal for a little girl to be so beautiful!! Seriously, she has one of the best smiles on this planet! Those cards rock the holy heavens! The card you stitched on is wonderful, that green flower is wonderfulX2, and that blue "h i" card is FAN-STINKIN-TABULOUS!!!! Wowza!

  2. If I know anybody who can pull this off by Monday, with style and time to spare, it'd be YOU! I'm not kidding, it's a proven fact!!

  3. Hello dear! Back in here to give words of encouragement - YOU GO GIRL! YOU CAN DO THIS! IF ANYBODY CAN, IT'S YOU! YOU ARE AMAZING! - and say that I hope you have a great weekend!
