Easter Gift

Here is the awesome Easter gift that my GF Brenda gave me yesterday. She is truly the Punch Art Queen!! I absolutely love this matching bag and note cards and will probably end up not using them for anything because they're just too, too cute!! :-) Thanks Brenda for this wonderful gift and for your friendship!

Easter Bag

I knew I would be seeing my GF Brenda so I made her a little Easter bag and filled it with some goodies. It was the first time I inked up this TSRD stamp that I bought almost a year ago!! LOL...I almost forgot I had it!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all had a good Monday!

Mini Purse and Note Cards

I just love the projects over at Craft Project Central! Here is my version of the mini purse and note cards that is featured on CPC. Looking at the pictures now though makes me realize that I need to dress it up a bit more. The instructions actually use the SU! Beautiful Wings Embosslit (and is very pretty) but mines is on backorder so I decided to go with a flower theme instead. Anyways, for now, it is what it is...until I can figure out what more I want to do to it. :-)Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for leaving such nice comments. It's so encouraging to receive such sweet feedback from you! Have a great weekend!!

Quick Cards

I've been feeling the urge to craft lately but not on the big projects that I really should be working on! Anyways, I needed a few cards for some special people so I decided to put together these quick 3x3 cards. Now if I can only start focusing on the bigger projects that I need to get done!!

Monster One-derland

I saw these suitcases on Becky Roberts's Inking Idaho blog a while ago. I thought they were so adorable but never got around to trying to make them. Well my DH's co-worker is planning her son's first birthday party and she chose a monster theme for his party. She is having some monsters knitted for her but she needed to figure out how to work the little monsters into a centerpiece. She is even naming each monster and making little birth certificates and adoption certificates for each of the 30 monsters she's making...so adorable huh?! Anyways, she asked me if I could help her come up with some centerpiece ideas. I thought it would be really cute if each monster came with it's own suitcase so that the lucky party guests who get to take home the centerpiece, can take home their new adoptee in it's own suitcase. I made these suitcases just to be able to play with the size and be able to visualize it better. My DH's co-worker loved them...now she's trying to decide if she wants to have a couple of different sized suitcases stacked on top of each other so that it stands out more as a centerpiece. Thanks for stopping by again. I hope you're having a great St. Patrick's Day! :-)

Baby Shower Favor

One of the mom's in my son's class is expecting a baby girl next month. Our sons hit it off from the very start during the screening process for the school a few years ago. So I thought it would be nice to throw her a little baby shower since a few of us mom's get together for dinner every so many months. Here is the favor that I'm making for the shower. I found this on Tammy's (Fun Paper Candy Demo's) website. This actually came together quicker than I thought it would. I just think it's so cute! Now I'm trying to put together a baby carriage diaper cake to go along with her favors! :-)

Simple Wedding Card

I put together this really quick card this morning for a wedding my DH and I are attending tomorrow night. I CASEd this from the SCS gallery. I really liked the simplicity of it. I added a small pocket to the inside where I'll include our gift.

My DH is taking me on a weekend getaway in Waikiki since all of his recent business travel has earned him a few free nights at the Hyatt. Since our anniversary is coming up this week and the wedding we are attending is in Waikiki, we decided it would be the perfect time for a little staycation...minus the kiddies who will be spending some QT with Grandma and Papa! I can't believe we've been together for 19 years!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Monkeying Around

I made this birthday card last week but I just wasn't happy with it. So I ended up holding onto it instead of giving it out this past weekend like I had intended. I think it needs a little more work. I decided to post it just because I think that little monkey is just so cute and I love how this spinner card has him tumbling towards the tree.

I've Been a Lucky Girl

I've been dealing with a house full of sick people (myself included) for the past few weeks and have just started trying to get our lives back on our routine. During those weeks however, I did receive a few packages that really brightened up my germ filled days!

This first bunch of sweet stuff, I won from Angie of My Boat back in January. Angie is in Italy so it took a while to get to me...and boy did the anticipation build up. I was so excited when my post man brought this package to my door. When I got the package open, I was so happy to find that Angie had included a few of her creations in my box-an adorable candy slider, a wonderful pocket calendar, and one of her awesome cards. Thank you so much Angie!!!
During this time, I also won 1LuvnMama's Cupcake Rosie candy and received my goodies! I was so surprised that I won because I really never win anything and I entered right before her deadline. She even included a few extra goodies that got me even more excited once I got her package open. Thank you so much Mama!

I still can't believe that I won these awesome prizes! I can't wait to start creating stuff with all of these goodies. I feel so lucky and thankful to Angie and Mama for their extreme generosity! Thank you both so very much!!!
