It's ELMO!!!!

This card is for a friend's granddaughter who will be 2 this week. She's having a Sesame Street birthday so I HAD to use Elmo!! I just love him!! TFL!

Birthday for a friend.......

This card is for a friend of mine (her initial is B). I love the pink/black/white colors together. The branch was cut with the Cricut using the Storybook cart. TFL!

It's Christmas time!!

So, like all of my other crafting sisters, I've been working on Christmas cards. You can see below the ones I've gotten completed. I've used mostly Paper Studio papers and some of their stickers. I've also used the great Martha Stewart branch punch. (LOVE that thing!!). Also included are some of the MS border punches, liquid pearls, glitter, cuttlebug embossing folders, some odd ribbons from HL and M's and of Cricut!! I have several more to make, but thought I would share some of the first bunch. TFL!!

Pink Christmas ???

Yes! It's the challenge this week at the Christmas All Year Round blog. We were asked to use pink and green, polka dots and 2 flowers on the card. I couldn't believe I had the perfect Christmas paper for this challenge! The patterned paper is all Paper Studio. The flowers are Greenhouse by American Crafts and the ribbon is some that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I ran the tree thru the Cuttlebug using the swirls embossing folder. I also used a Martha Stewart border punch around my greeting. This was fun! It's my first time to participate with Christmas All Year Round and I look forward to their next challenge. TFL!!

Monogrammed note cards........

I am working on 16 sets of note cards that I have sold. Here is a sample. I used the cricut - Mini Monograms to cut out the "T" and circle. I matted the negative space with black and added some black ribbon at the bottom. Simple - but kinda cute, I think. TFL!!

Happy Birthday, Josh!!

Today is my son Josh's 25th birthday. Josh is such a special person. He is the "peacekeeper" with all of his siblings, kindhearted, stubborn (like his dad), and very, very smart!! He passed his CPA exam the first time he took it! (Now how many people can do that?!). I am so glad he is a part of my world. He always makes me smile. Happy birthday, son. Love you!! (Oh, and here is the card that I made for him too).
