Cheery Card

Good afternoon everyone.  I made this card for a very good friend of mine who is going through some rough times right now.  Hopefully this will bring her a little cheer and know that she is a great person.

First Communion Chipboard Album

I made this First Communion album for my sister-in-laws daughter.  I didn't put a lot of emphasis on religion due to her being a young girl.  I wanted it to be something she would love and relate to.

Bringing Baby and Baby Shower Invites

I didn't make this for anyone in particular.  I've had this stamp for a while and just hadn't taken it out until now.  I think this stamp is absolutely beautiful!

I also made these baby shower invitations for my niece.  We are giving her a shower next month and I wanted to do something fast so I got this idea on Splitcoaststampers.  I don't remember who it was so I'm sorry I can't give her the credit.  I was going to wait and find out if it's a boy or a girl but I like the way the yellow looks so I went with the yellow and white.

Strawberries So Sweet

It has been quite a while since I made my mom her weekly card.  I made her a Mothers Day card but that doesn't count.  I originally had an idea to make this card with a basket of strawberries but it just didn't work out for me so I played around a bit and this is what I came up with.

Hello Baby

Happy Monday.  I wish I could say this week started out great but it didn't.  Too many things on my mind but one thing is for sure.......crafting always makes me feel better.  I made this card for my niece to give the mommy-to-be at a baby shower this weekend.  I really wanted to add a ribbon but since she is having a boy, I decided against it.  Besides that, I wanted her to see "the trunk" of the tree.  I hope she likes it.

Red Hot Message

Thank goodness it's Friday!!  We have made it through yet another week!  I was itching to do something crafty so I made this quick and easy project.  I saw this on youtube and I made my version of it.  I'm going to leave it in my husbands car on Monday morning so he will find it on his seat when he goes on his break.  It's pretty self explanatory.  I hope he likes it and knows I'm "Red Hot" for him all the time.  Hee Hee!

Coffee Cup Gift Card Holders

Happy Monday everyone.  My grandson Orlando's last day of Kindergarten is Wednesday so I made these coffee cup gift card holders for his teachers.  He is a special needs child and is in a special needs class so there are 4 teachers.  Even though he will be in the same class next year with the same children he is with this year and the same teachers, it is still a great achievement for the kids. I commend these teachers for their hard work and so I am placing a $5.00 gift card to Starbucks inside.  I hope they know how much my daughter and I appreciate them.

Princess Birthday Card

I made this cute simple card for my granddaughter who is turning 2 tomorrow.  My sister gave me the stamp so I'm not sure where it came from.  It has the crown and the sentiment "little princess" below it but I just stamped the crown by itself for the main image and then used the sentiment on the side of the card along with the "happy birthday" sentiment from "Party this Way" stamp set.
