Meow Meow Meow!

Thanks from your favorite neighborhood cats!


A request to make a thank you for a cat-lover.  I really love the polkadot background paper that I used as a border. It really gives a pop of color to our furry little friends!

Chipboard Alphabets Letters – I heart you!

So I’ve had these chipboard alphabets stuffed away in my stampin’ stash for a while (at least a year) and I finally decided to use it!

Here is a happy birthday version:

A little Get Well Card:

And finally a thank you:

I love these alphabets! Soooo adorable!

Thank You Bugs!

Thanks from not just any bug but a cute lady bug!

My best friend took me to a wonderful stamp store and we found this absolutely adorable stamp!

The grass looked a little empty so I added pebbles in the second photo and I like how it turned out.  For some finally touches I used stickles and bling for each of the flowers. I also sprayed the sky with shimmer sparkle spray but it’s hard to tell from the picture!

Hope you have a great labor day weekend!

With Gratitude!

This card was inspired by my best friend who sent me such an adorable card!

So I made my own version and I just love how it came out.  All this time I should have been making these long sized cards because there is so much room to design! This monkey from Paper Smooches is so adorable!

Flying Turtles!

Up up and away…

This card was lots of fun to make because I got to use twine, my new balloon punch, and my turtle die cut.

I heart my Scottie!

That’s how I reasoned paying $40 (shipping and handling) for this adorable stamp set!

Enjoy the first of many scottie cards to come!

A little simplicity goes a long way!

A wise person once said, “Keep it simple, stupid.”

I came across this crafting blog where simplicity rules.  For instance, keep it simple by attempting to make a card with only 1 layer-that means no bows, no paper punches, no bling! eeeekkk! I would not have made the cut with this card because the flower above is 4 layers.  Nevertheless, the crafts were so inspiring and I love the concept! So here’s to keeping it simple!

Thank You Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms are an omen of good fortune and an emblem of love and affection.”

I love love love how this card turned out and I am excited to share the different versions that I made of it!  I came across the branch stamp while I was visiting Impress.  They had many stamps that were very simple yet sophisticated.  Using my retro flower punch, I attached the flowers with brads and added rhinestones.   I like how the branches and flowers are simple enough to be paired with other sentiments.  I can’t wait to try this card in pink, purple, and blue!  Enjoy!
