Some Angel Cards

Sunday we had the Angel circle and I wanted to post the 2 cards that we made. The first one was a Mother's Day card. I got the idea from splitcoast stampers to do this one! I just thought it was so pretty and would make a great Mother's Day card. The instructions to making this card are here . The swirl stamp used is called fancy curls. They had 2 diff colors to choose from and here they are...

We also made another card with the NEW An'Udder Brithday. I just LOVE these cows they are so much fun to create cards with. I did two diff colors which the girls also got a choice to make either one.

I made some other cards with this set but will post at a later time so I don't clog up one entry haha!
Have a GREAT day!

Monkey card & Digital Page

Today was a productive day for me. I worked on cards for the "New" release for Pink Cat Studio that will be coming up very SOON! I'm SO excited for this release! I'm having a blast with these stamps they are SO adorable.

This last weekend I went and shopped at Hobby Lobby and found me a cute monkey stamp to add to the collection of course. I made a card with it today and also used my prisma pencils with gamsol today! I only used them one other time and BOY am I really liking them the more I use them.

I downloaded this cute digi doggie kit from Lilybell's blog I made the bottom two for myspace page. Thank you Lilybell for your AWESOME free kits!

A little book with BIG hearts!

On my birthday every year it seems when I make it out to stop in and visit my old co-workers. To me that's one of the many perfect gifts to have on my birthday. Is to spend time with the special friends that I have known for about the last 9 years. I really need to get around to see them more and not just once a year. So on my last birthday (2007) I took my camera and took a picture with each and everyone that made it to lunch and this year for my birthday I had a cute little book that I made to share with them. Now I'm sharing it with you all.

I came across this quote today and thought it was a PEFECT quote for my post today.

"The Only People You Need in Your Life, Are the Ones That Need You in Theirs"

TWO challenges!

I haven't posted much since I have been sick with a tummy virus for the last week or so. It was not fun let me tell you. I still felt a little sick today but, still went into my craft room and tried to make a couple of cards for some challenges. I feel A LOT better tonight so hopefully it's gone for good. Now on to the good stuff.

Pink Cat Studio's DT, Tammy challenged us this week to grab some inspiration from her bright curtin that is hanging on the window of her computer room. I love bright colors so that's what I grabbed from the curtin was the pretty bright colors!

The next card that I made was from a sketch that Nicola posted on her blog here . I also used Tammy's challenge on this card since I had some scraps left from the card above. I really love the way this one came out. I just LOVE the beach and I love Pink Cat Studio's beach stamps they are too cute and fun to use!

MY Birthday Weekend...

I had so much fun and had LOTS to do.

On Sat. MaryJane and I had signed up to go to a Stamp Camp a while back and it just so happened it was on my Birthday weekend..woo hoo! It was so much fun, not a lot of people and the projects were super cute, easy and the people were SO super nice! Here are the projects we did minus one of them because I messed it up REALLY bad.

These were hanging on a water bottle isn't it just the cutest idea ever!

Ant picked me up from there and surprised me with these beautiful flowers! (the grad monkey is from my Mom haha! she said that I just about had every single monkey but not a grad monkey so she bought it for me.) She also got me 3 new movies Enchanted, Alvin & The Chipmunks and Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium.

After stamp camp was over Anthony and I headed home to rest a little. Then we got ready to go have dinner with Jake and Monique. We went to eat at the Macaroni Grill and then to go watch that movie Ruins. It was a pretty good movie. If you don't like to watch bloody movies DON'T watch this movie haha! They gave me a gift certificate to get a pedicure and Ant got some golf balls and some tee things...don't know much about golf but it was something to do with that.

On Sunday, I had the monthly Stampin Up circle to go to. THAT was lots of fun. We did two super cute projects. MaryJane made this ADORABLE butterfly cupcake for all of us to celebrate my Birthday with and they all even sang me Happy Birthday. They are all soooo SWEET! After the circle was over we headed over to MaryJane. Her and her super amazing cook (her husband) cooked us dinner. We had stuffed chicken, rice and salad and of course another YUMMIE home made carrot cake by MaryJane. BOY was I all caked out the last few days. MMMmmmmMM I love cake so I didn't mind haha!

I also got lots of goodies from my Best Friend Blake which I can't wait to scrap with! I just got another gift in the mail from Sonya it's a BEAUTIFUL statue fairy for my cute backyard! Anita got me a little basket with some goodies that really made me smile it was so CUTE! She said she didn't know what to get me but did know some of the things I did like..A box of cake mix, cupcake cups, frosting, tea, monkey cups in a little cute pink basket! That was just an adorable gift! MaryJane and Bill also got Anthony and I a gift card for the Olive Garden and you know that cute cupcake cup butterfly cake she made me? well I got a pan to make one too!!! Her awesome hubby made us a coat rack (which I don't have pics of because it's at her house still because we couldn't fit it in the car). I got lots of lovely cards and Happy Birthday wishes! I hope I didn't forget anything else.

I would love to thank all the people that spent my birthday with me and thank all for my gifts. cards and most of all for your friendship and love.

MY Birthday!!!

I had such a WONDERFUL day! It's such a blessing when I get to share it with all the people that I love. Of course, there are a few of my friends that I didn't get to spend it with because they live out of town :(.

To start off my day on Friday we first went and had lunch with the Ladies I used to work with many moons ago. These Ladies are some of the most caring and loving people in the whole wide WORLD! They mean the world to me. Three of them were unable to be there but maybe I can go back soon and get together with them.
(digital kit was made by Lillybelle )

Then after lunch we headed down to this place called Art Attack. Our original plan was to go to the Zoo but the weather didn't let us do that. So we found this little place to go to where you pick a piece of ceramic and paint it. So Anthony and I did that all afternoon and here are the pics from that. It was SO much fun!

By the time we were done there it was time to meet up with my Parents and Brother for dinner and some shopping. First we went to Target then out to eat at this place called Quarters. They serve BBQ and it's yummie! Then back to our house for some Baskin Robbins ice cream cake!

It turned out to be a wonderful day! There is a lot more to come since I did celebrate my Birthday all weekend long haha!

Happy Birthday to my Sweet Hunny!

Today is Anthony's Birthday! Happy Birthday Hunny! He is ONE wonderful Guy! I love him so much!!! Yesterday I got busy and made him a Birthday card with a new Stampin Up set that I've had for a while called Happy Camper. I just LOVE this set now and want to make lots more cards with it..there are SO many options! I did get a little inspiration from SCS site.

I also made 2 other birthday cards that of course, I'm late on sending. But I guess it's better late than never right? Here are those 2 cards they are just about the same but a little diffrent. I used Pink Cat Studio stamps on them with some Angel Co. scraps I had.

I don't have a sewing machine so, I did some by hand...the sewing I did is called Val's LONGGGG stitches haha! This will tell you alot why I don't have a sewing machine because I have no idea what I am doing.

There is a small fee of $1.00 for this service. Information on how to have your stamps personalized is available on the Pink Cat Studio website at in the Cat, Lily and Billy stamp category pages.

I love doing the sketch challenges from Paper World's blog . My card is VERY plain but was still lots of fun to make since I used the "NEW" Billy stamps from Pink Cat Studio.

This was another card I made just playing around with the Billy stamps.
