Rock On Card!

Hi Everyone! This card was made for my son the day before he graduated from the initial two week period. I thought it would be fun to encourage him with a fun, youthful card. I made this using Prisimatic Paper that I purchased from Ross although I see hear that Joann's(and probably Michael's is carrying it) They call it holographic paper. You can also find it on Ebay under holographic paper as well. To see a video of how I made this card, please click on the link below:

Singing Bird Congratulations Card

Hi Everyone! I can't believe that my son is coming to an end of his first two weeks at Military School. From here on out it will be easier for him. I am so proud of him for sticking this out and really doing his best. I got a letter today from him that he wants to try out for a leader position. That is sooo exciting!!! I used My Pink Stamper Happiest Moments Stamp Set and the Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridge. This card is HUGE!! LOL I really wanted to do something big and we are not allowed to send him any goodies so this was my way of showing him how much I am proud of him.

My Pink Stamper Design Team Card

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to share with you the card that I made for My Pink Stamper's Design Team. The theme this time was Love and Pink. I thought of how much fun it would be to have two little love birds looking into each other eyes(awwwh). LOL Isn't the font on this Happiest Moments(My Pink Stamper Stamp Set) so cute??!! I did the banner with the Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge. I added some faux stitching, hearts and a flower with a pearl in her hair for something special. Be sure to check out My Pink Stamper's to see what Robyn and the other amazingly talented ladies on the team made as well. XOXO

I had already sent Robyn a card, but I didn't take a picture of it so I made another card to post on the blog! :0) I used her darling stamp set, Tweetie-Hoo Puns, Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge, and the Forever Young Cartridge. I added a Recollections corner to spruce it up.

Rocket Card For My Son

Hi Everyone! My son went off to Military School on Saturday for 5 1/2 months and I wanted to send him a card to encourage him. I am so proud of him for wanting to do this. I don't know if I would have been so brave at the age of 17 1/2. He is thinking of joining the Air Force when he gets out. He wants to be a pilot. I used the Nifty Fifty Cricut Cartridge and My Pink Stamper Everyday Occasions for the sentiment. I think it goes perfectly!! To see a video of how I made this card, please click on the link below:

I previously worked as a free lance artist for a major chain specializing in paper crafting as well as taught classes to the young and old alike. I have 4 beautiful children ages; 20, two at 18, and one at 17. I feel really blessed to have such a supportive husband and best friend.
For my project I made a card using the my Gypsy. The cartridges that I used to make this card was Accent Essentials, Cindy Loo, Create A Critter, and Hoot N Holler. The darling sentiment came from the MPS stamp set called Tweetie Hoo Puns. Aren't the two little love birds...I mean love owls just so cute!!! :0)
