pretty in pink...and black

Kathy and I both got this funny to see the different cards that we make! Even if the shadow girl is the same the cards turn out so different! I love the background flowers. I think it makes the card!! Pretty right??

I did try..

Ok so I saw a card on SCS and it was a shelf with books on it and it looked so great sooooo I thought that I could do the shelf and put cars on it...My husband collects cars and so I tried a whole lot of things...this is not what I intended it to look like but I guess it wasn't meant to be...even more sad because I was making this for my Brother and sis in law to give him...I did tell him the plan after...nice that he is understanding my process and sympathizes with me!

birthday cards

This is the last of Hailey's Birthday cards...thankfully after 3 birthday parties and lots of great gifts and a whole lot of cake and treats we are done with her birthday!!!  I did make this card as well but I made it for my brother and sis in law to give to her...This kinda looked like her cake...she picked out the "fall" look from the store! She always surprises me with her choices....

wishes for Hailey

This is the card I made for my Baby!! I know she is not a baby any more but she will always be my baby girl. I got these stamps because the girls are growing up and I know they didn't want princess cards anymore.....I don't know why!!! I thought that this is totally Hailey....

Evan's birthday...

so it was my nephews birthday today and of course he got lots of fun presents...but his cards were great as well.... so here is the one I made him...I will post Michelle's and Kathy's in the next 2 days!!! Watch for I made this from a mini doodle that I got at the craft store.....I copied it to a couple of different colors of card stock and paper pieced it all together... it took forever but I think it is a cool card for a 5 year old...I did use Crystal Effects for the eyes and the circle around it....It is hard to tell but I have 3 layers in this card...I loved it so did he!!! What do you think???

Mike's Birthday

It is Mike's birthday on the 7th but we are going to celebrate it when we celebrate Hailey's...But he will get the card I made for him on the 7th ...I tried to do the birthday cake pop up card that is all over SCS but I don't have the big shot and so I had to be happy with the card being 3d the whole time. My hubby is a really good man and a fab Dad..We love him so much and I think he will love this...He will know the time and effort the girls and I put in...He appreciates a good card...or in this case a good cake!! Have you tried this...

very fishy

My my I have been busy...we all have....Michelle has been working on fathers day cards like a mad woman and has taken to running daily ( yes in this heat)...Kathy is in New york....yes she is away again....and yes we are bitter.....yes we are having my Dad over for dinner a lot while she is away!!! I just finished with the girls dance recital...I am sooooo PROUD of both of them!!! They worked hard and loved every minute! We loved it as well! and with all that I have made some really cute cards...or so I think! This is for my Dad for Fathers day. He is a fisherman and hunter but I wanted it to be a bit whimsical and fun for him. I did a gel card I saw the tech on SCS....I think it is going to be a hit! What do you think ...have you tried to do this..I didn't have all the required materials so I used a clear envelope to hold the gel. It has held up just great!

Evan's birthday...

we made the invites for our nephews birthday for his buddies...We got the idea from SCS and it seems so perfect because he is having a pet store come to his house and show the kids ( 4 & 5 year olds) all sorts of bugs and animals.....I will be far far away cause I am creeped out just thinking about it...That is why I have girls and we have " glam " parties!!! However, I know it will be fun for all and it starts as soon as they get those invites....see I told you I have great things to show you!!! Yes.... there is more coming tomorrow!!

Hawaiian birthday

My oldest daughter had a Hawaiian birthday to go to last week...this is what I made her to give a gift card in...I think it is perfect for an eleven year old!! What do you think?  I got the flower stamps when I was in Hawaii last time we when and the Honu I got the first time we went...I haven't used them much but wow I was glad I had them for this.
