Cups & Kettles

Today I have another card made with the Cups and Kettles dies and stamps from the Occasions Catalog.  I am doing a class using this bundle in April so I have been playing around with it.  This card appears to be crooked but really isn't, when I edited it this was the best photograph I could get.
Today is the last day of Sale*a*bration so don't miss out if there is something you wanted.  I also want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who ordered during SAB.  I set a goal at the beginning and more than surpassed it all because of my loyal customers.  Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Cuppa

Today's card was made using the stamp set A Nice Cuppa and the Cups & Kettle Framelit dies.  I used the Have a  Cuppa DSP as well.  I colored the doily with a Bermuda Bay Blendability marker.  Don't forget tomorrow is the last day of Sale*a*bration.  If you purchase the bundle I used to make this card on page 34 of the Occasions catalog, you are only $11.00 away from earning a FREE Sale a bration item.  Thanks for stopping by!

You're So Sweet

I can't believe it has been over a week since I posted anything, I have been working nonstop on a wedding shower and am happy to say it is almost done.  My kiddos have also been out for Spring Break so that's always a challenge to find time to work and keep them occupied at the same time.
I am so ready for school to be out for summer break!  Today's card was one we did in punch class this month.  Thanks for stopping by!

What I Love

Today's card is made with the stamp set What I Love from SAB.  Don't forget that SAB ends on March 31st.

Today is also a special day, March 21 is a day set aside to show love to people with Down's Syndrome or Trisomy 21.  My family was blessed with Jamie Bush, my nephew,  33 years ago.  Jamie is the sweetest, funniest, and  most loving person I know and I am so thankful that God sent him to us.  Everyone he meets immediately becomes family to him, he will refer to them as his cousin every time he sees them.  I love this little man and don't get to see him near enough.

This picture is about 4 years old but he hasn't really changed much.  His mother died in a car wreck about five years ago and he and his dad(my brother) live together, they are like two grumpy old men.  They are always arguing about something which is hilarious.  Love you, Jamie Bush!

Pedal Pusher

Isn't this sentiment and bicycle perfect for someone going through trying times or dealing with all the crazy things of just life in general.    Just knowing that you have that friend who is always available to do anything and everything you ask is a great help.

I always forget to show you the inside of the card and I actually photographed it today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Bridal Shower Invitations

I didn't have enough to do so I took on a Bridal Shower as well, but that's ok because I do like being busy!  This is the invitation which I kept simple since I have 150 to make.  She also wants a "Words of Wisdom" card as well as a Recipe  Card that will be included with the invitation.

I used the Cups and Kettles die set to cut the spoon and fork, the mom of the bride will pick up the samples tomorrow, hope she likes them.  Thanks for stopping by!

Prom Swag

Hope your weekend was good, ours was awesome.  We went to see  a Mary Poppins musical put on by the high school students. It was very well done and my kiddos are still singing the songs.  I think Dalton enjoyed it most, he even bought one of the Mary Poppins hats(his dad wasn't pleased that he was wearing a "girl" hat but he didn't tell Dalton that).  My Shelby is a Junior this year and I am helping with After Prom, this is one of the samples I made for putting their "swag in".  I also made a larger one but the photo didn't turn out very well.  The theme is Enchanted Forest so the Woodland Embossing folder was perfect and their colors are different shades of blue and purple.  I have to make 400 of these so I will be a little busy the next few weeks.  Thanks for stopping by!

Get Well Soon

I made this card with the  Treat Bag die for a sweet lady in my Sunday School class who fell and broke her hip and is now home from her surgery.  I  will hand deliver it along with some meals for her freezer to help out a little while she recovers.  I am also going to add a gift card to a restaurant that will deliver as well.

This is the insert, I made it a little longer than I usually do because the backside of the DSP that I used for the envelope clashed with the card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Rose Wonder

I think this stamp and die set is my favorite from the Occasions catalog, hopefully it will carry over since I haven't got to use it as much as I want to.  For this one, I mounted the die cut on a lighter piece of card stock and cut around it.  I also used Wink of Stella on but it doesn't show up well in the photograph.  Thanks for stopping by!

In the Meadow

Aren't these deer precious!  We live in a subdivision just outside of town and behind our house is a meadow that has a small pond on it and there have been six deer living there for over a year.  Every morning they make their way to our back yard and eat grass, the kids really enjoy seeing them and try to sneak up on them to get a picture but the deer  are too observant and always take off.  One day about two weeks ago I noticed that the smallest one had a wound to its back side and it was limping and  had been bleeding.  I think someone must of wounded it with either an arrow or a gun.  I was going to buy some shelled corn to put out where it could find it but then we haven't seen it with the others so I think it may of died.  Anyway, I love how this card turned out.  This stamp set, In the Meadow, also has some other very pretty trees and rocks that I am going to use to make a scene with soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Princess

Today I have the lovely Snow White to share.  I bought these stamps while on vacation last year in Florida but can't remember where I bought them. I had intended to use them to scrapbook Disney World pictures but that hasn't happened yet, I am only about 8 years behind on scrapbooking!

I am working on making the dwarfs but it may take me a while.  Thanks for stopping by!

Princess Party

I worked on samples yesterday to have on hand for when someone comes in to book a kids birthday party.  This same design will be used as the invitation.

This is the favor box.

It will hold about 8 candy kisses or two mini candy bars or small jewelry.

I do ship these in the USA only.  If you are interested, keep in mind that you will need to place order at least 6 weeks in advance since I stay booked ahead that much.  For pricing you can email me at  I will show you Snow White and Ariel as soon as I complete them and you can see Aurora here, I am also making an Aurora dress box like the ones above.  Thanks for stopping by!

You Brighten My Day

Yesterday was the 4 year anniversary of the Leap Day tornado that hit our town and took the lives of 8 people and the homes of many and today we woke to wind, thunder, lightning, hail, and rain.  The first thing my kids asked was are we going to have another tornado.  I needed some sunshine this morning so I pulled out the Sunburst thinlit die and made this card.  The sentiment is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by!
