A Wedding Card....

I know it is the Fourth in a couple of days.....but I don't have anything patriotic to share with you. I have been so busy with CHA projects that I haven't had much time to create for myself! So this is what you get today! If you squint your eyes really hard, it kind of looks red, white, and blue.......right? with me people!
Anyways, this is a Papertrey card I created awhile back with their new die/stamp combo. (Love this Bug!) I stamped it in black and Hawaiian Shores ink. I used various sized Nestibilities and topped it off with a satin ribbon and great big Prima flower!
Pearls were added to the headlights and Crystal Effects was added to the windshield. I loved the sentiment on the license plate and think this would be perfect for a recent engagement or wedding.

I am heading to Michigan today. All of our crap........ahem....stuff, is sittin' by the front door ready to go! I am very much looking forward to spending time with family and lounging by the water. I am hoping Kyle gets the chance to water ski and Cortney in the tube. (I need scrapbooking material! LOL!)
Hope your holiday weekend is fantastic! I'll "see" you next week!

Forgot to Show You Cort's Favors and Disco Balls!

My MIL and I created 50 graduation favors for Cort's party a few weeks ago. We did lots and lots AND lots of punching! We even had Kyle pitch in a bit! We had all the body parts in separate bowls so we could set up an assembly line and create these little "Cortney" cheerleaders! (She is a cheerleader for our local Special Recreation dept.) We worked for about 6 or so hours. Everything was done except the writing and placing them on the pillow boxes. (Thank goodness for my MIL who was gracious enough to finish that part!)

And in case you are wondering..... because my family was wondering at the party.....her shirt says Elim! (The name of her school!) They thought it said, Ellen or something. Dorks. : )
And here is my funny, funny husband. Get a load of those shorts! He actually paid for those! And not cheap I might add.....from an on-line store called Loud Mouth Golf Apparel. Apparently, it's not enough to golf anymore, now you have to be obnoxiously dressed while you golf! LOL! And in case you are interested in buying these for yourself or your spouse, this particular style is called, "Disco Balls." : )

Ha. Ha. Disco Balls.
Have a great day!

Good morning! Just a quick post today! With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, I have lots to do! We are heading out to my Dad's house in Michigan this weekend. The kids are excited to hang out with their cousins and swim, boat, water ski, etc. So I have lots of packing and laundry to get done. And I am sort of weird because I like to make sure the house is clean, so when I get back the house is still clean....KWIM?

So a quick post requires a quick card don't you think? I love Crafty Secret's Creative Scraps because all the "hard" work is done! The images are already beautifully colored! I paired this image up with some Kraft and cream card stock and some polk a dot paper by Melissa Frances. I added a bit of lace, ribbon, and a Prima flower. The sentiment was stamped from the Sweet Kid's stamp set.
Off to conquer the piles of laundry I have to do! Fun. Fun. Fun.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in June.....

Good morning! I have a Christmas card to share........I is still 6 months away! But hey, it will be here before you know it! I used a set from last years JustRite release called Christmas Treasures. I love the image of the cardinal here. It was colored with Copic markers. The cardinal and leaves were colored twice and popped up from the image. I added chunky glitter to the rooftop to emulate snow. The paper is by Cosmo Cricket and PaperTrey Ink. The circles were cut out using my Spellbinder's Nestibilities.

I added teeny tiny rhinestones to the holly berries. They are actually intended for nails.....I bought them at Sally Beauty Supply. (Even buying hair care products I think about this crazy hobby! LOL!)
JustRite is taking pre-orders on this years new Christmas collection! They are gorgeous!!! Head HERE to place your order!

Cort is back in summer school and Kyle has drama camp this week, so I will have a bit of quiet time in the house........ : )
