Bountiful Blessings

My monthly card swap club met today.  Theme was fall and/or texture.  Everyone did a great job on their challenge.  So, here's mine.  I used the easel card technique.  Turned out really cute.  GO ME!!!!

Kindness Counts

I really like this technique.  It's not that bad with the folds when you have the SCOR-PAL.  Gotta love it.  I think I may make some of my Christmas cards out of this design.  Hum....maybe not.  We'll see.

Floral Delight

Created this card on the basis of trying to use supplies that I have not had the chance to use yet.  I really like this card. Because I am OCD, I wasn't sure if I like that fact that the Top Note was cut in half, but I really love this card.  I cased this card from Beccabooscrapper. Thanks Becca.

UPSY DAISY! Another Card Topper!

Another card topper for a friend.  That Razzleberry Lemonade DP is great.  I can't get enough of it.  I cut the sentiment out with the scallop oval punch and the bigger oval was cut with my cricut.  The topper is also a design from the Storybook cartridge.  This cartridge has so many images to choose from for toppers.  I'M LOVIN' IT!!!!


My friend is having a little girl.  She has been battling cancer and is taking a huge chance of giving life to someone. She is so high spirited and you wonder how, in all that you are going through, do you have the strength and energy to keep on giving.  She has two beautiful children now that I know will be a great help to her and the new little one.  So, here's a card I made for her for the upcoming arrival of her precious little girl.  I am going ALL out with these toppers.  I'm going to include a gift card holder on the inside.

Thanking a Friend

I created this card from the card topper technique.  I cut the card at 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 and decorated  with Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper and stamp the saying with Sweet Little Sentiments.  The topper was cut with my cricut expression using the Storybook Cartridge.  LOVING THE CRICUT!!!!


Well, the holidays are vastly approaching.  I've started on a few samples for this year, but not too excited with what I've come up with.  I'll post these and see what you think.  I believe I can get them looking a little more festive than they appear now.  They're a little boring to me.  We'll see.


My friend came back from serving over in Iraq about a month ago or so and he had a little cook out, so I decided to bring a few little favors.  I just LOVVVVVVE favors.  I think every party should have some.  Well, check these out.  I used the sour cream packet technique.  It's super easy and quick to put together.  Don't forget your super duper tacky tape so they don't fall apart and the crimper.  Got to have the crimper for texture.  ENJOY!!!


Well, it has been quite a while since I've been here, but it's pretty hectic.  Schools back in and moving swiftly towards Christmas.  I'm amazed at how fast time flies.  I've promised shots from my craft room so here's a pic of the curtains I made.  I purchased the curtains from Wal-Mart and altered the top section with this fabulous fabric I bought from my favorite fabric store in Austin, Interior Fabrics.  Gotta love it!  So, tell me what you think.
