Love and Be Loved

This card has to be one of my favorites. But then again, I think I say that about all of them at one point or another! This one almost looks "quilt-inspired". I used beautiful shades of purple and blue in this one. The front of the card features an inspiring message that reads: "Love and Be Loved". The back of the card has my signature stamp that reads: "Made with (heart) by:" and I have signed my name.

Look what I just bought!

I found these really cool crayon roll ups on Etsy in Trendy Tootsie's Shop. I thought they were just adorable so I bought two, one for the girls to share and one for the boys. They just came in the other day and, I tell ya, they're a big hit with the kiddos! And do you know what the best thing about them is? The kids actually *like* cleaning up their crayons now! No more broken crayons all over the floor because they aren't getting picked up! The craftsmanship was great on these products. They looked even better in person! Another great Etsy shopping experience.

Cute Autumn Scarecrow

My little girls and I were playing arts and crafts today and look what I did! And yes, I realize it's only June. Not *quite* time for autumn yet. :o) But I had this really cute scarecrow stamp and just had to use it. So now I have a head start on my Thanksgiving cards!

My girls are here!

They're finally here! My two daughters (ages 6 and 3) have been spending a few months with their dad and now it's Mommy time again! I am so grateful to be able to see my little angels every day. The girls love crafting as much as I do, so don't be surprised to see some of their own original artwork on here!

My First Swap!

I am a member of an online scrapbooking group where they do scrapping swaps. I had never even heard of one, let alone participate in a swap. But, I decided to try something new and sign up. The theme was Retro...the pinks and the browns. Such a cute color combination! The assignment was to create 13 identical 6 x 6 layout pages using the color scheme and one embellishment of our choice. I just finished all 13 pages, but before putting them in the mail, I took some photos to share with you. Let me know what you think of my first swap creation!

Retro Kitty Cat Cards

I was up late last night and couldn't sleep so I decided to mess around in my craft room. Lo and behold my newest creation....the Retro Kitty Cat cards! I think the cards are fun and people like fun. :o) I made six cards in three different colors: pink, blue and green. The pink ones are my favorite...only 'cause it's my favorite color.

New Item Listed - Inspirational Cards!

These cards were just listed today! It's a lovely set of 4 inspirational cards. Each one has a special motivational message. The cards were made with two different kinds of textured paper to give the cards dimension. I also added a little ribbon to finish it off. Click on the pictures to view the items. Thanks for looking!

Another Custom Order - Baby Shower Thank You Cards

My friend Erica just had a baby shower for her new baby. The theme was Turtle Bay (Google: Turtle Bay Bedding). She asked me if I could make her 50 Turtle Bay thank you cards. I couldn't find Turtle Bay paper or embellishments to save my life! So, it was time to get the creative juices flowing and see what I could come up with. This is a picture of the front of the card. I stamped "Thank You" in blue ink on the inside. I'm so happy with how they turned out!

Check out this custom order I did!

A very good friend of mine, Suzanne, has a son she can be very proud of. Her son Tyler was selected to be a Student Ambassador for his school. This summer he is going to have the opportunity to travel to different countries and have an experience of a lifetime! Suzanne has some wonderful people in her life who were able to donate funds to help make this opportunity possible for Tyler. Suzanne wanted to send all of the donors an extra-special thank you card. These are pictures of the postcards I created for her. I had so much fun making these and I am so proud of Tyler!
