Just a Silly Quick Card!

This was a pretty quick card for me to make last night! (I finished another layout for Memory Makers and needed a break! Only one more to go...yea!) I colored this awhile ago at my friend Sharon's house....(Dew Drop Inn Designs.) I used my Copic Markers, which I am FINALLY starting to get the hang of! So last night I cut the image out, used my corner rounder from Creative Imaginations, backed it with some orange Bazill paper and rounded those corners too. The patterned paper is from KI Memories and is pretty old! I love when I ACTUALLY use some of my old stash! The ribbon is from American Crafts. This cute duck stamp....yes another from Missy B Designs. The sentiment is from Doodlebug. I thought this stamp might even make a cute Mother's Day card.....looks like me trying to get my kids to go somewhere, while they moan and groan at me!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Scrapbook page about me!

I have a scrap page to share with you...about me! I did this page awhile ago and thought I would share it! I am usually never in photos, as I am the one taking all the pics! I thought I should try to be in some of the photos and write about myself! I don't know about you, but I love seeing pics of my parents when they were young. My mom with her teeny bikinis and big blond hair.. my dad with his funny suits and longer hair! I have no cards to post cuz I have been working on my scrap pages for Memory Makers...I was really ready to give up....I am not that talented and probably would never get published....but then I would I know if I don't try? Dina over at Ponderings, encouraged me to I AM! I have one more page to complete and then they can be mailed off....Wish me luck!

My beautiful New Niece Katie....and Cortney is the featured layout at Scrappin Trends!

I am so excited to introduce to you my new beautiful niece, Katherine Ann! Isn't she the cutest little peanut? Just a little over 6 lbs! I spent the day with my sis yesterday. I held Katie almost the entire day.... I miss having a baby! (Until they cry and then I GLADLY hand them back to mom or dad! )
My other announcement is, Cortney's cursing layout was chosen as the FEATURED LAYOUT at Scrappin Trends! (July/August issue) This is the coolest on-line scrapbook store and gallery! My summer layout of Kyle was also chosen for their Summer Pages! He is on page 10 if you would like to check it out! Lots of great scrap pages here!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Fourth of July! I am blessed to have met all of you! : )

Bitten by the Bug Birthday bag!

Regina Easter gave her DT a challenge to use the lunch bag feature on Cricut's Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge!

So here is my take on this cute bag! This amazing machine has so many wonderful features! Go to Bitten By the Bug to get inspired!

I used the Salsa paper by Junkitz. I sewed the paper with my sewing machine. I stamped the mini cupcake from the Doodlebug set, on a jewelry tag. I adhered it to the ribbon. I cut the hearts out with the Cricut as well and applied crystal lacquer and rhinestones to it. Unfortunately, it did curl a bit at the top. Don't stare at it tooo long! Wouldn't this be cute with a little jewelry or cologne inside this box for a gift!

Another House Mouse....and I've been tagged!

I'm on a House Mouse kick! I love these guys! I made this card for our friend's son who just turned 12! His b-day is July 1. I thought a patriotic card would be appropriate! I used my Prismas and Gamsol. I used the Souffle pens to give the stars some dimension. I stamped the Pledge of Allegiance on the brown cardstock in Chocolate Chip. I distressed everything. For the sentiment I used Karen Foster's snap stamps. I sewed everything using a zig zag stitch. Last but not least I tied the brown ribbon right through the red button!
I am going to see my new niece today...will post pics tomorrow!
I've also been tagged! I am supposed to list 7 things about myself that you may not know....
1. I sang in my high school's show choir....( I actually have pictures of me wearing a satin green dress with a sash....soooooo 80's!)
2. I had "big" permed hair in high school.
3. I played the clarinet and organ.
4. I graduated college and got married in the same month......14 years ago!
5. I HAVE to have vanilla creamer in my coffee!
6. I can NOT watch gory movies...they give me terrible nightmares!
7. I hate husband does his own!
