Welcome Little One

Hey there,

Today I'm showing you another Sugar Creek Hollow card. Every Friday the Design Team is challenged to make a card. This week's challenge is to make a recessed window card. To learn how to make one, click Here. There is a great video tutorial from Beate from Splitcoaststampers.

for this card, I used the Little Girls Dress. I used my bone folder to curl the dress and glue just the tip so that is pops up on it's own.

Today, I made 2 other cards that I will show you this weekend. When my DH came home I showed him what I was working on and he love this card the most. I hope you do too!

Well, I'm off to start my weekend. May you have a blessed weekend filled with lots of love and family gatherings.

Thank You

Hey there,

So what are your weekend plans? For me, after I finish this post, it's time to finish the laundry and clean the bathrooms. Yesterday, I managed to clean the downstairs, cupboards, frig and do food shopping. Today is upstairs.

Before my madness continues, I decided to post this card I made this week for someone at church. This DS paper is another beautiful paper from Webster's Pages. I distress, sewed and sponged the papers. The Thank You sentiment I generated myself. A simple ribbon and a few pearls finished the card.

Okay, now time for my madness. Gotta go clean!!! Have a blessed weekend!!

May Your Cup Overflow

It's another Fabulous Friday!!!

Boy, is it going to be a beautiful day!! These are the days when all I want to do is open my windows, turn the radio up and clean!!

First, before my crazy self kicks in and start my cleaning madness, I must share with you this weekend Sugar Creek Hollow 'Use your favorite Digi' Challenge.

For my pick, I use the tea cup and tea bag labels. It is such a beautiful teacup and the tea bags are plenty to choose from. I picked the Tranquili Tea. The sentiment I genterated myself. If you look closely at the teacup, I actually made a slit and stuffed the cup with some tissue to puff it up. I used twine to give the illusion that there is an actual tea bag inside the teacup.

Well, I hope you like my card. Please take a look at the rest of the Design Teams cards by click on their names to the right of the screen. They have outdone themselves with this challenge!

Have a blessed Friday!!

Spring is Here

Hey there,

Guess what today is? That's right you guessed it!! It's Fabulous Friday over at Sugar Creek Hollow!!! And a Fabulous Friday it is!!! The weather is very promising this weekend, my family will be celebrating our lil' girls birthday and my son is getting an award for his musical contributions at school. I can't ask for a better weekend.

I challenged the girls this week to make a card using these colors.

Now two of these colors are retired from SU but for me personally, I love these colors together and they don't retire in my book until I deplete my supplies.

I made this card using the new Webster's Pages Your Life Beautiful. It's a 12x12 sheet. I cut the corner piece where the Robin's Egg was so I could use it for my card. After I distressed all the paper with my new Distrezz-it-all (gotta have) toy, I sponged the edges and glued together. My sentiment is Colors of Joy from SCH. I also used the Barn Swallow digi. You can get both of these at the STORE.

Now it's time to take a look at what the girls have made for you. Make sure to go to their blogs to take a look.

Thanks for looking and have a Fabulous Friday!!

With Sympathy

Hey there,

The sun is finally shinning, the skies are clear and the temperature is warming up. This is the day the Lord has made and I am so grateful for it.

This week has been a little off for me. I've had no time to craft for me personally but for others. This weekend is my lil's girls birthday so I've been busy putting together her party favors. I also made this card for my husband's coworker who lost her mother recently.

I kept this card quite simple. It has such an elegant look to it especially with the buckle. A simple bouquet of flowers and pearls along the bottom to finish the card.

By the end of this week, I'll show you two more cards I managed to make. They are for our Sugar Creek Hollow Fabulous Friday Challenges. Make sure to come back on Friday to take a look.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed rest of the week.

You are my Jam on my Toast

Hey there everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday and Mother's Day for those who are moms. As I am blogging, my DH and son are cooking dinner. The house smells like fresh lemon, garlic and chicken.

I am a little late posting the new Release digis from Sugar Creek Hollow. I left my battery from my laptop at church last week and couldn't get it until yesterday. All my files are on my laptop and not having a battery just but everything on halt for me.

Anyway, here is the Jelly Jar set.
I couldn't help myself and I just had to add some toast. I colored the jam with my copics and added paper glaze to make the glass effect. I paper pierced the lid and used dimensionals to pop it up.
The sentiment I created myself. Well, looks like dinner is ready. Time to enjoy my Mother's Day dinner prepared by my family. Gotta love it!!!

God's Grace

Hey there,

I hope your week started on a good note. My DH and I were busy yesterday shopping for the kids summer clothes, cleaning closets, volunteering at our our lil' guys kindergarten class, taking him to T-ball all while celebrating his birthday. These days, the kids seem to take a president over our birthdays.

Anyway, here is a card I made the other day. It was one of the cards I had to make for my DH. If you can see closely, I heat embossed the black scallop oval. I used SU Basic Black card stock and clear embossing powder however if you look there are some pink specks. I have no idea how that got there but, I like the way it looks.

Well, I have another busy day today so I'll keep this post short. Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
