This picture of Cortney cracks me up! Since she has been a baby, she gets the cutest pouty face right before she is going to cry. I love how her lower lip sticks out! I am so glad I captured this priceless expression!

I used Daisy D's paper, vintage buttons from Mary's etsy shop, flower stickers also from Daisy D, my Cricut machine for the letters, and some rub ons.

Thanks everyone for leaving such nice comments. I think part of it was just having a crappy week at work. I work with alllll women.......enough said!

Not Feeling very Loved These Days : (

I am feeling very unloved these days. The highlight of my day is coming home from work and seeing how many friends came to visit, and reading the comments. Lately, I have very few people commenting. I know how pathetic this sounds....but it actually makes me sad! So then, being the anal retentive person I am, start thinking.....does my work SUCK? Maybe the stuff I am posting is bad and no one has the heart to tell me! Drop me a comment if you have any uplifting words...... : )

I made these wine charms for a person in my family for Christmas. I used Crafty Secrets stamps on Shrinky Dinks, colored them in with my Copics, punched them out with my SU! scalloped punch. I attached them to wire rings and added beads. Just a quick little gift!

Cheers to you!

For some reason the photo of this card is a little lighter than it is in real life. Once again I used my Crafty Secrets stamps. I inked the wine bottle and glass with Palette Noir Umber ink. (Fancy word for brown I think!) I colored the grapes and wine with my Copics. You can't tell in the picture, but I used crystal lacquer for the wine to give it some dimension. The sentiment is also Crafty Secrets. I used my new SU! punch and satin ribbon. Do you see the wine charm? I made a bunch of them for a certain someone for Christmas.....shhhh can't tell you who. But I will post them tomorrow!

Blog Candy Winner and another Crafty Secrets Card!

First blog candy winner is Canben! My hubby picked number 22! Congrats! E-mail me so I can get your goodies off to you!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I was fortunate to scrap allllll day on Saturday with a great group of ladies. We have such fun when we are together! We laugh, eat, drink, and maybe get a few layouts done! I actually got 6 pages done! Yea for me! I will be posting some of them later this week. But first, another Crafty Secrets card....can you say obsessed? I am in love with this company's stamps and images! This cute little turkey is from the Paper Pads booklet. I used 7 Gypsies paper that I received from Simone as a birthday gift! I did a little sewing, added some twill, buckle, and brads. It was a pretty quick card......which is usually difficult for me, since I normally agonize over cards for hours!
