Happy Valentine's Day!

I totally cased this idea from Jody at Coffessions of a Ribbon Addict! She found these cute little jars at Michaels in the bridal dept. So of course I had to buy some for myself. I made a bunch for Cort and Kyle's teachers. I used that teeny cupcake from Sweet n' Sassy........again! I used a heart bead for the cherry, crystal lacquer and microbeads for the sprinkles. (again) I punched the circles and distressed them a bit. I glue dotted some ribbon. I added a jewelry tag with the teacher's name.

BTW.....I guess No ONE likes Charlie Brown and Snoopy? Only a few comments.......*sigh*
Seriously, Hope everyone enjoyed their day with their loved ones! Hugs to all of you!

Dusting off the 'Ole Stamps!

I bought this stamp ages and ages ago. I thought it was so funny! I have always loved Charlie Brown! Maybe because I have a little Charlie Brown inside of me! (Life keeps pulling that "football" from under me! LOL!) I used my Copics to color the image. I am not sure who the stamp is by because it is currently buried under piles of crap! The paw print stamp is by Hero Arts. The patterned paper is by A 2 Z Essentials and the solid green is by Basic Grey. I used a soft gelly photo corner by KI Memories.
I received this award from Sophia Landry over at Moonlight Inker. I am so glad that I am able to bring a smile to someone's face!Thanks so much Sophia! Who by the way, has thee most awesomest cards! (YEs, I AM a teacher!) Her coloring is to die for!

Who are the people that cheer me up and crack me up all of the time? Off the top of my head I would have to say, Simone and Mary Ann! I wish I was able to express my creatively as these two ladies! If you are ever feeling down, go visit their blogs, they will instantly bring a smile to your face......or doubled over in laughter.....or spitting milk out of your get the idea!
This next award was given to me by Wanda over at My Creative Corner! I am honored that she nominated ME! I have a hard time awarding this to others because so many of you have already received it and it is sooooo hard to choose. I have a list of favorites a mile long! It is such a great hobby because all of us possess such awesome talents! And we get to share them with each other! So consider yourself chosen! : )

Thanks so much for checking in with me today!!!

Reason to Smile....

I received this stamp set from Kivonne awhile ago. I finally inked it up. I stamped it twice with Brilliance ink, and cut out the second image. I popped it up with pop dots. The paper is by SU! I used my sewing machine to create the butterfly trail. I cut apart the sentiment and added pretty polka dot sheer ribbon.
I appreciate all of your kind comments! Thanks for visiting me!

Scrap page.....and some Belated RAK's!

This is a picture of my silly nephew at Christmas. He just got a "ball drop" that uses air to blow the balls upward. I love his expression and the fact that his hair is going up! I used my Coluzzle for the circles, my Cricut for the title. I got this sparkly dots at Archiver's Hot Spot.
I am so very late in posting this beautiful RAK from Corie over at Creations by Corie. She is such a talented sweetheart. I have not made one single criss cross card, but now have my very own sample! Maybe I will give it a go! Thanks so much Corie!
Cathy Meyers sent me this adorable thank you card for winning my blog candy. I love this card.....and now wish I had purchased this set! She appliqued the hot cocoa.....LOVE that! You can find her wonderful cards at Splitcoast under Stampin Fanatic.

Thanks for visiting today! So glad Monday is over!

Bitten by the Bug Challenge!

This week's Bitten by the Bug challenge was to use one of the envelope cuts from the Doodlecharm's cartridge. Since Valentine's Day is around the corner, I stuck with the love theme. The paper is by Doublemates. I also used microbeads for the cupcake and heart. That cute little cupcake is by Sweet n' Sassy! I ADORE that little cupcake! I distressed the edges and added a few stickers from Making Memories. The Valentine's are from Daisy D's.

Well, trying to send everyone to school tomorrow......hope I don't get any calls! No fevers but still coughing!
