Make A Wish

Today is my day off. I am meeting a friend for lunch and doing lots of errands.
Here is a birthday greeting I made the other day...
The paper is My Mind's Eye and the embellishment is K&Co. I cut paper for my sentiment with one of the Nestabilities Labels - but only used half.
And, I forgot to post my new personalized 3 Designing Women stamp that I ordered from Paper Source. Now, all my creations are undeniably mine!
Happy Thursday!

Butterfly Demographic

A lot of cardmaking goin' on yesterday. I am trying to make cards that appeal to a certain demographic which is not easy.
I picked up some new MS butterfly stamps yesterday and put them straight to use when I got home.
The paper is from GCD Studios and the sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink. I am really enjoying my new stamps from there!

Working at PS today! Happy Tuesday!

Happy Mother's Day

To all of you who are Mother's to anyone (either human or four-legged), have a wonderful day.

And now for a birthday greeting:
Made with paper from Fancy Pants Designs and a hot air balloon stamp from PaperTrey Ink.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Fancy Pants Thanks

This thank you card I made with papers from Fancy Pants. The sentiment is from the letterpress occasions tags that I bought at Paper Source. You can tell it's letterpressed because the paper is a textured paper and it needs to be "fluffy" so that the letters can make an impression in the paper.
Happy Wednesday!

Here's to Celebrating M&M Cookies

A friend of mine is having a birthday today! So, yesterday I whipped up a card and a batch of M&M Cookies, which I had never made before.
I used papers from Cosmo Cricket's Social Club collection and stamps from Paper Trey Ink (LOVE them!)

The little origami folded box that I put the cookies in is so easy to make. It was recently featured on Donna Mundinger's blog. You can watch the youtube video here.

Celebrate in Style

Here is one of the cards Mom and I made during our last creative day. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Upcycle collection. I love all the bags and purses...a great birthday greeting for a girlfriend. (You can click on the photo to enlarge it to see the details.)
