Aloha Kitty

Happy Friday all!  The past couple days I have been in bed with some kind of cold!  I feel miserable but took a cold tablet and decided to clean my craft area while I'm feeling a little better.  Within the next couple weeks we will be moving to a new house and my craft area is a absolute mess so before I start packing up I have some major cleaning to do.  

Here's a simple card I made a few weeks ago with this darling Hello Kitty Sizzix die.  She's a cutie!

Well have an awesome weekend! TFL!

Teachers Gifts Galore

Okay, so remember I said I had to make 14 teachers gifts?  Well at 1:00 this morning I FINALLY finished!  Not to mention  I had to wake up at 5 this morning to make some Spanish Rice for my daughters class party!  I am wiped out but oh well, since I'm on a roll I'll be doing some vacuuming and I'll shampoo my carpets too.  All this crafting left me so little time to get things done around my house.
Okay, now on to the project.
This is not a good picture cause it was in the wee hours and the lighting was so bad but this was made using the "Pack-A-Picnic" template from Papertrey Ink.  I made a variety of different colors and styles but to tell you the truth I was in no mood to have a "photo session" ! LOL!
Here are the contents inside.  I included General Foods International coffee and some chocolate dipped Biscotti.

Here are some cookies that were wrapped in DP.  Just something really simple and fast!  I also made some desktop post-it holders but I wrapped it before taking pictures.  I was so bummed but was in no mood to have to rewrap them again just for a picture.  My brain must have fallen asleep while my body kept going!   Well I'm glad it's over now I can relax and just craft for the joy of it (after I clean the house!).
Okay, I'm off to do some housework!  TFL have a beautiful day!

Fun in the Sun with Trevor and Emma

Good morning!  Hope your Monday is off to a great start!  Well for me it's a bit hectic.  My son woke up this morning with a 103 degree fever!  I just hope he doesn't get it as bad as my daughter did a few weeks ago!  That was so NOT fun.  On top of that my kids both finish school on Wednesday so little ol' last minute me, is busy crafting away making thank you gifts for 14 teachers!  Yes 14!  Now that they're both in middle school they have 7 each!  My goodness!

Anyway, enough rambling.  Here is a card I made using the CC Designs "Sandbucket Trevor" & "Polka Dot Emma".  Aren't they adorable?  Colored them with my Copics and the DP is from PTI.
Have a beautiful day! TFL!

Sunglasses Emma

Happy Sunday everyone!  And a Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!
Here's another card using CC Designs Sugarplums image.  This little darling is called
"Sunglasses Emma".  I think she's so cute with her little sand pail and glasses.  The surfboard and slippers are from CC Designs Sugarplums Beach Scene.  The Beach Scene set has all the perfect accessories to go with these adorable beach bunnies.

Annika and a Card Couture

Have you guys seen the new release of templates by Lauren Meader over at Papertrey Ink?  This is called "Card Couture" and  it can hold a lot of A2 sized cards.
Anyway, a friend of mine who used to stamp with me many, many years ago quit stamping cause she never had any time.  Since then I have been making all of her cards for her.  After she seen all the images from The Greeting Farm she fell in love with them and has been wanting to start stamping again.  So to get her back into the groove of things I thought I would make her this gift.  Her favorite image is "Annika" so of course I had to put her on the front of the box!
Here is a picture of another angle so you can see the details of the handle.
Opened view.  Flap stays put with a velcro dot.
  Used the Martha Stweart Scallop border punch for the detail on the back.
Instead of filling this card couture with finished cards.  I filled it with some Greeting Farm images to help get her started.  I hope she likes her gift!  TFL!  Have an awesome weekend!

Surfer Emma

Wow I think this is the first time I actually posted three days in a row!  I surprise myself sometimes! LOL!  All kidding aside, have you all seen the cutie patootie stamps by C.C. Designs?  These little beach guys are so super cute!  This image is called "Surfer Emma" and she was so much fun to color.  It's hard to tell from this photo but her surfboard is layered to give it a 3D effect.  This card was so much fun to make!
TFL!  Have a wonderful day!

Kawabunga Dude!

I swear this is the cutest Ian image yet!  This is Surfer Ian from TGF and I absolutely adore him!  My dad is an avid surfer so I made this Father's Day card for him.  I'm not normally into these bold and bright colors but I think this came out pretty cute!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day!

I'm back!!!

Hey everyone!  Boy has it really been a month since my last post?  Sorry to leave you all hanging but there has been a lot going on.  My daughter took a trip to Washington D.C. and came back home with the worse flu ever!!!  Of course with the "swine flu" going around, I was in a panic until her test results came back (4 days later) negative! Whew!!!!!  But she was really really sick and I was exhausted from taking care of her.  On top of that my son started track practice and I have been at the park from Monday - Thursday and at track meets ALL day on Saturdays!  Uggh no stamp time!  To top that all off, my landlord calls me and tells me that they decided to sell the house so now we have to move!  My husband and I have been looking for houses and that's no fun!  I'm exhausted!!!!
Okay, okay....enough babbling!  Sorry! Lol!
I did manage to make a few things I was just too lazy to take pictures and post them.  I'm so bad!  Well, I finally decided it was time to post something so you guys know I didn't fall off the face of the earth!
This card uses The Greeting Farm's "Sing" image.  Isn't she just the cutest!?  I swear Marie's stuff just keeps getting cuter and cuter!  How the heck is that possible!?
Okay everyone I'll be back tomorrow with more stuff.  Have a wonderful evening!
