I Miss You, Friend!

Monday, May 30, 2011

Just a simple one layer card today.   I've been thinking about how much fun my girl friends and I used to have when we all lived in the same town.  We are still great friends, but we are split up between 3 states. 
I miss them! 

Love this little snail :)
I hope to have time to make a card for this week's Make It Monday!
See you later!

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge: Flowers

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Papertrey's Challenge

Since my mom's surgery, two weeks ago, she has received many 'get well' gifts, cards, and flowers.  She is in need of several 'thank you' cards.  I had a few in my stash for her, but needed a few more. 
Flowers are perfect for 'thank you' cards!  I tried to keep this one slim and easy to mail, but couldn't resist adding the buttons.  Oh well! 
 Thanks for stopping by. 
I can't wait to see what you have made for this month's hop!

It's about time I got a card on this blog!  This is just a bright, simple card I had laying on my work table for the last week waiting to be assembled.  I love the little flower tag from tiny cute!

Have a great day!  Tomorrow is the PTI Blog Hop.
 Hope to see you there!

We Make A Perfect Pear

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I'm getting this week's MIM done just under the wire.  The focus technique is selective inking, choosing which portion of a stamp to ink up and use on your project.  I decided to use Button Boutique's 'We Make A Perfect Fit' sentiment stamp and omit the word 'Fit'.  In its place I used Outline Alphabet to stamp the word Pear.

The house is clean and I'm headed back into my room for more creative time!

Paper: Nook and Pantry Line from Basic Grey

Friday Inspiration File #15

Saturday, May 14, 2011

Another Inspiration file a day late!  My mother-in-law and my mom have both recently had surgery.  My mom is coming home from the hospital today.   A lot going on lately, which is why I haven't really had much crafting time, but I have been around checking out all of my favorite blogs.  Here are a few things that caught my eye this week.  Enjoy!

This first one I am sure you have all seen, but I don't want to forget where I saw this awesome project that Jessica made!

I was never really a huge fan of the dress form, but this one is really unique!

Tina made this gorgeous scrapbook page.

Maile's clever wine bottle it!  I'll definitely be making this for a friend.

Sweet felt birdies.

Still love banners!

Did I mention I want an iphone?  Cool skins from Cosmo Cricket!!

Love this bright card by Sara Mac.

Have a great weekend!


Long Awaited Visitor

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

I bought this feeder a few months ago and researched when I should put it out in our area.  I patiently waited until the middle of April.  It was up for about a week and and half before I spotted him!  Not the greatest photos.  They were taken through our storm door.  Now that I know he's here, I'll be ready to get some better photos!

Fill This Day With JOY

Sunday, May 1, 2011

Our Friends' oldest son made his First Holy Communion this weekend.  I wanted to make him a special card, but didn't have any religious stamps or embellishments.  I decided to create a cross out of satin ribbon. 

We spent a really nice day with our friends and their families yesterday in celebration. 

Have a great day. 
See you later!
