Monster Energy Card

I am having a surprise birthday dinner for my husband this Saturday.  He loves Monster energy drink anything!!  There will be black and green balloons, a cake with the monster logo and in keeping with the theme, I made this 2 second card.  LOL  If I put anything on the card other than the classic logo, it would look different and let's face it, just plain ugly.  LOL.  So all I did was use a black card base, SU Old Olive cardstock that I inked with black and I printed an image I got off the internet.  It literally took a couple of minutes to do.  Not too creative huh?  LOL

Valentine Cards

Good morning.  It's Monday again and I am in the creative spirit this week.  I was in a valentine mood yesterday so I made a few cards.  The first one titled Hot Mess is for my hubby.  LOL.  I know it looks a little feminine with the ribbon but I like it!  The rest I might just mail out.

Valentine Pouches

Good morning and happy Thursday.  I'm sooooooooooo tired this morning.  I have started working out on the treadmill and eating healthier since the beginning of the year.  I wasn't going to craft last night after my workout but I felt the NEED.  LOL.  I made 4 of these diaper pounches for my grandson's kindergarten class.  There are only 15 students as it is a special needs class.  With that many children requiring special attention, there are 4 teachers.  These were very easy to make.  The most time you use is in embellishing them.  I filled them with a chocolate rose, a mini clipboard, a blinged out emery board, a heart lollipop and 3 Hershey's Nuggets that were leftover from my kids valentines that I made them.

Valentine Pillow Boxes

I made these valentine pillow boxes for my stepdaughter Ariel.  I didn't embellish them a whole lot because these are for kindergarteners and believe me, they are not looking at how creative the boxes are.  They just want the candy inside!  LOL  So with that being said, I used SU pillow box die, SU heart to heart punch, the sentiment is from SU set called yummy ( I think it was a hostess item), SU red glimmer paper and the oval scalloped punch.

Valentine Lollipops

Good morning and happy Friday!!  I made these lollipops for my stepson.  He told me he didn't want anything girly.  In other words, no flowers, no hearts, no nothing.  So I just wrapped lollipops with cellophane bags and tied with a ribbon with a stamped tag that says "A little yummy for your tummy".

Good morning and happy Monday.  I made these super quick valentines over the weekend.  I got this idea from www.beebugcreations.com.  They are so cute and perfect for my grandsons kindergarten class.  I still have to make 4 valentines for his teachers which will be different from these top note boxes.  Hope I inspired you!

Elements of Style Birthday Card

Well, I am still at home sick.  I decided to get up and take a shower to feel somewhat decent and make a birthday card for my sister in law.  Her favorite color is blue so this is what I created.

Follow Your Dream

Good afternoon everyone.  I have been in bed for 2 days and finally got up to make a card.  My parents are leaving for Texas to visit my baby brother probably what will be their last visit as they are in their 80's now.  So I made this card to put a little spending money in for them.
