Blog Candy Update and a Card...

I have had several people contact me to let me know they were having some trouble leaving a comment for the Birthday Blog Candy. So I will leave this open until the 1st, please leave a comment on this post if you were not able to comment before, (or if you just didn't get around to commenting before)!HTH
I don't know about you, but every year I have all these great plans for the holidays in my head, and I just don't get started soon enough. Making my Christmas cards is one of those things that I just never quite get to. So this year I am trying to get a jump on the Holiday season!! I made this card for a swap, so I will get 6 different cards back!! I really like how this one turned out, all stamps are from The Angel Company. The 'Happy Holidays' sentiment is from a Level A hostess set called "Just For You". The house and the other half of the sentiment (I pieced it together) are form the new set "Welcome Home". I really like how this card came out, I think I will have to make more... soon so I actually get them done!

Cards by Alex!

Here are the amazing cards that my sweet girl made! The only thing I had anything to do with at all is the scrappers floss on the rocket card, I helped her curl it all up, oh and I tied the bow, that's it!! She use a lot of my punches for her shapes, and a few stamps, now she is hooked! I hope you enjoy them, she is very exited that I am posting them on the Blog!

I will be celebrating my birthday this week, so I thought it would be fun to offer a little "Birthday Blog Candy"!! Leave a comment here on this post and I will randomly draw a name (most likely out of a hat) Monday July 28th! I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Criss Cross Card

This is one of the very first creations that I made for the Paper Wings Design team, and still one of my favorites. I really love that Mimi paper line!!

I just received a bunch of new papers and stamps from The Angel Company, all kinds of wonderful goodies from the new catalog!! Today I have been working with one called Willoughby, just beautiful paper, it may be my new favorite!!

My daughter has taken a sudden interest in paper crafting, she will be 9 next month, I am so proud and amazed at the cards she made! She asked me if I would post them here, so as soon as I have some photos I will be sharing!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!

Road Trip!

Last month some of my (Most Wonderful) Hostess group and I went on a Road Trip! We had so much fun! We went to The Paper Garden, if you are in, or near Sacramento, you NEED to go to this store, it is a stampers dream! We spent the whole morning in there, so many stamps, we even got to do a make and take! Thank you Stephanie!! I bought a couple of Elzabells stamps there, love them! The card at the bottom was made with one. I am really exited because tomorrow I will be going back to The Paper Garden to take a class given by Julie Ebersole! Yipppeeeee!

We had a wonderful lunch at an Italian restaurant too, on the left side of the table is Kathi and Caroline, on the right Susan, me, and Sandy. We really missed the rest of our group, Linda, Brandy, Erin, and Kim! Next time you guys have to come!
It was a really fun day, I do owe Kathi an apology though, in my haste and excitement to get into one store, I accidental locked her in the car! So Sorry! Ahhh, good times! Thank you Sandy for driving us all around, and for the treats too!! You guys are the best, can't wait to do it again, although my pocket book is still a bit bruised!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!

New Family Member, and a Card!!

I'd like you to meet a new member of our family, this is Finn! A couple of weeks ago we adopted two little kittens from a shelter, and they are so wonderful!!! Our other baby doesn't love the camera, so I only have pictures of her walking away from me, have to work on that! They are both doing great, and I think they have doubled in size already!

Anyway on to the card...

Another new image I just had to play with, Elzybells "moon girl", by Amuse! And more scraps from my big pile of scraps. Hey and how about those flowers!! Found them at Micheal's, and My Most Wonderful Hostess Group had given me a gift card, I have them in all colors!! :) Thank you Ladies!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
