Card: Circle celebration

Whenever I create a card I like using different products that work together well... In this card I included Modern Dot turquoise paper (Creative Imaginations), Gaffer tape (7Gypsies), Hoppy Memories Simply Scrappin border stickers (Stampin' Up), and Zinnia patterned paper/Epoxy sticker (Little Yellow Bicycle).

Card: Be Subtle

When I looked closely at one of my 7Gypsies gaffer tapes I knew I wanted to use it. The butterfly is a dimensional sticker by Debbie Mumm for Creative Imaginations.

Birthday wishes!

Where does the time go???? I remember when it seemed like an ice age before my birthday came along, but recently everything seems to be on fast forward. Anyway, this year I decided to treat myself to more than one day off for my birthday. I know the economy is in a slump and all, but I see it this way I am getting paid for part of my days off and if I can't treat MYSELF who's going to. My dad, stepmother, and brother took me out to the KNIFE restaurant yesterday and I had a blast. Of course the obligatory loud display at the restaurant had to happen. Once a year is allowed! - I will post a layout of the embarassing event soon, LOL
P.S.: The cake was DELICIOUS!

Challenge: Got Sketch Butterfly

My dear friend Melina has always been there for me.... and this week she invited me to do an online challenge with her. It gave a nice kick in the pants I did not know I needed. The sketch was from Got Sketch. As far as the sentiment I could not come up with one that I liked.

Card: Graduation 2009

You know time has flown by when someone you feel is still your "little" niece graduates from high school. Yes, it happened and I almost started bawling when I saw her walk on the stage to pick up her diploma. Where did the time go?... It seemed like just yesterday when I was bawling at her elementary school graduation, LOL!

Card: Thanks Dougie!

My brother has been through a very hard time this year, and our friend Doug has really been there for him. When my brother asked for a card I knew exactly what the theme would be. You see Doug and I share a passion for the GATORS. I re-purposed a temporary tattoo i had stored for a rainy day. It was a breeze since I had some watercolor paper and a water brush (just like buttah! LOL). The polka dotted tape is by Stemma....The paper and rubon (chitchat) was Stampin Up.

Card: Sew classy birthday

Luck has been my friend lately, and never so clearly as when I was commissioned to create this special birthday card for a coworker. Veronica's mother is a creative seamstress and when I heard that I knew what products I wanted to use. Donna Salazar has been an inspiration to me for a long time and I have been saving one of the camo flowers I purchased at her etsy shop for this special card. Her work at Prima and through her career gives me hope that I can achieve whatever I want. The paper was Stampin Up kraft cardstock & ribbon, as well as Basic Grey (Bittersweet, Porcelain). The embellishments are Me&My Big ideas (MAMBI) puffy flourishes and Fashion District butterfly. A Prima fleur vintage style flower capped with Say it in Crystals is the cherry on the cake. It was loads of fun to create and Veronica said her mother loved it... I am a happy camper
