So I just went back and looked at that lace/shoe picture in a bigger size and it looks terrible!! Not sure why?? Trust me the card looks ALOT better in person!

Birthday card for 2 challenges!

So I created this card for a neighbor/friend that shares the same birthday as me. She is a wee bit older than me (probaly by 60 years or so) and thought she would enjoy the lace and fancy shoes! I used some paper and the shoe from my stash, some ribbon from Hobby Lobby and Prima flowers. I am entering this into the La La Land flower challenge and also the Daring Card Makers "Lace" Challenge.

Oh and did I mention I bought MORE stuff today?? I feel that this crafting is going to be a BIG addiction for me!! But it is so much fun!!

Birthday Stash!

My birthday is in 3 days and as I posted earlier my hubby took me shopping and I got LOADS of goodies! I feel like the luckiest woman alive! I'm sure it was not loads of fun for him while watching me choose between styles and colors of various items. I'm sure he was thinking...would you pick something out already!!! Several hours and stores later the picture above is what I ended up getting, a few items are not shown in the picture but you get the idea!
I did however get a little payback yesterday on making him shop for so long...we spent the majority of the day shopping for supplies/tools for our newest project...BUILDING A HOUSE!!! I was not thrilled to do this BUT I tried not to complain because he was so patient at letting me shop...I'm sure we have all been there! LOL! More info on the property/house later. For now I must go make a birthday card!

Thank You and Tickled Pink!

A special thank you goes out to "Marvelous Merry" for helping me figure out how to put blog candy on my sidebar!!! She has fixed much aggravation on my part so thanks again!

I also want to add how tickled pink I was when I got on here today and noticed I actually have a follower!! So exciting!! The other one is just my hubby being supportive of my madness :P I hope a few more of you decide to follow and share in my creativity!

I doubt anyone is following my blog but myself but I wanted to apologize for hardly having any projects posted. I have been spending my time researching some new ideas and collecting supplies and in the meantime I have just posted about winning candy. Although I have yet to figure out how to post those on my sidebar! Need training!
Anyways, I now have some knowledge and some tools under my belt thanks to my DH for taking me birthday shopping! I will post a picture of my goodies later! I was so excited I could hardly sleep! :)

Lighthouse card

I made this for my mom's birthday. She collects lighthouses and I got the new Life's a Beach cricut cart and had to break it in along with my Martha Stewart glitter. I am entering this into the Cute Card Thursday and Pink Elephant challenge.

Post-It note holder with matching pen

My husband is an engineer and works in construction. He saw what I was going to do and requested I make one for him to put on his desk so I found this awesome paper at my local craft store with all kinds of construction signs on it. Thought was quite appropriate. Then I also put the paper inside a rsvp pen to match! I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge where you are to make anything BUT a card.
