What a Week!

And I can’t say I’m sorry it’s over!  The 3rd week in May is typically worse than any other week of the year – as busyness is concerned.  I *LOVE* celebrating the birth of my babies, but did they BOTH have to be born the same week (different years of course)?  And did my youngest have to be born on *MY* birthday?  Yes, she did!  Best birthday present ever and well, my husband hasn’t been able to top it yet.  Perhaps that’s why he has stopped trying.  LOL!  Anyway, all this… 3 birthdays and add some health issues for my husband, which includes 2 hospital visits and 1 doctor visit makes for a very difficult week.

Krystina’s 19th birthday was on Monday.  She had to work, so we weren’t able to do much of anything.  We gave her her presents when she came home and a happy girl she was.  Here is the card I made for her.  I just love Sherri Baldy My Besties stamps!  This one, Gill, reminds me so much of my daughter Krystina.

Izabella’s 6th birthday was on Friday as well as my 29th & a bit.  Here is the card I made for her – Mabel Rose.

I hope you enjoyed my cards and I’m very much looking forward to a peaceful week!

Peace Out!

Totally Inspired by Pretty Pink Posh!

Hello Everyone!  Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not much of a sleeper.  I usually go to sleep around midnight or later, ONLY to wake up at 5 am.  Now, I’m NOT a morning person and I think that in itself is the reason I get up so early.  I just need an hour OR more or quiet, by myself, doing nothing but what I want to, which is… drinking coffee… listening to the news in the background… and catching up on all my crafty friends by spending some time in BlogLovin!

This morning was no different, except for a card that really caught my eye… and a video to go along with it!  So much so that I couldn’t wait to get home and try it myself!  It was a shaker card made by Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh and the post is right here!  You really need to check it out.  It’s beautiful and well… So is Pretty Pink Posh!  😀  One of the sweetest crafters on the interweb I know!

So, here is my version of the Shaker Card, made for my Mom for Mother’s Day.  I’m sure she will love it!  Once again I used the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month – May 2013.  It really is a nice kit.

His & Hers – Day 4 and a Bonus Card!

HH_participant

Hello Everyone!  I know it’s been a few days or so, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been up to anything crafty!  I made these next two cards last week for His & Her’s Online Card Classes, but haven’t found the time to post them yet.  Yesterday I spent the entire day scrapbooking for National Scrapbook Day!!!  So, back to cards I am!  I’ve really been enjoying this class, but I’m not surprised.  I’ve enjoyed every one I’ve every taken.  Here are the cards I’ve made with MUCH inspiration from the beautifully talented Jennifer McGuire!  Here is my “HER” card:

And here is my “HIS” card!

I hope you enjoyed them.  See below for a list of supplies.

Now for my bonus card.  Izzy (my 5 year old) had a birthday party to go to today, so I made her little friend a card.  I hope she likes it!  Printed ribbon – Do you KNOW how difficult it is to tie printed (on one side) into a bow?!?!?  VERY! – but I think I managed it!  The image is “Gracie” by Kathryne and can be purchased at Whimsy Stamps. Enjoy!

Two Days in a Row! What?!?!

Yes, that’s right.  It’s me again!  I really didn’t have any intention of card making this evening, let along blogging, but with the recent events of today, I thought it best.  Just needed to get my mind off of all the horrific news.  God bless the victims and their families.  May he give them the strength to get through today, tomorrow and every day hereafter.  My heart is broken.

So, I had EVERY intention of coming home from work and… napping!  Izzy had us up most of the night last night with tummy troubles, so I was one tired momma, but I knew if I napped that I would wake up later and then be up most of the night again.  It’s a vicious cycle, so I’m pushing myself to make it to 11pm!  I’m almost there!

I finished up a few cards that I had lying on my desk and then I pulled out the Simon Say’s Stamp – April 2013 Card Kit!  Wow!  I love the papers in this kit and could hardly wait to start using it.  The stamp set is fabulous as well.  Here is what I came up with.  I hope you like it.

Well, that’s all for tonight.  Please say a prayer for Boston.  If you don’t pray, that’s ok too… Please think good thoughts and send healing vibes!  Thank you.

Peace Out!

Clean & Simple 2 – Day 6! – Not so Much…

So, today was day 6 of the CAS2 Card Making class.  I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVEEEE, this class.  However, my card for today was not so CAS.  More like CAS gone awry!  LOL!  Anyway, the talented Kristina Werner had showcased a beautiful card today in which she used a great background stamp with white pigment ink on a taffy cardstock to create a great tone on tone.  Not wanting to copy it completely, I thought I would create my own tone on tone using a clear embossing powder on kraft cardstock. Eh. It wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t the “white space” I had envisioned.  It had too much umph if you know what I mean.  Perhaps if I had chose a less detailed, busy background stamp it may have been ok.  But no, I love chevrons, so chevrons it was.  ONLY… way too much chevron.  Anyway… here is my Clean & Simple – Not so Much card.  😀

Thankful…..

There are a lot of things I’m thankful for these days…. to many to mention!  

I made this card for one of the homework assignments for my KICKSTART class.  It was a lot of fun to make. Sorry about the crappy photo.  That’s on my list of “things I need to get better at”.  LOL!
