A Christmas in July card! This one was a super fun one to make.
I used a 5x5 card base & used the SCALLOPED SQUARE DIES that came out the beginning July!
These are a must have die set! 

I created 'windows' using Jaded Blossom's STITCHED SQUARE DIES.
In each of the windows I used CHRISTMAS DIES.

And for the inside I decorated it with WINTER DIES for the icicles and 
the sign came from FALL DIES!

And finished it off with a sentiment from CHRISTMAS SIGNS!

Thank You Treat

I am gearing up for a super fun weekend away! It's the weekend of a fun birthday party for my niece & nephew. Their birthdays are just shy of 3 weeks apart, so my sister still lets them party together (which is much easier for me as they are 3 hours away)
I often have my trailer up there when we visit to stay in, but this year has been a bit tricky to haul it up there, so I text my sister today to ask if my niece is going to share her bedroom with us this weekend & she was cleaning it right then for us!
I wanted to make her an extra little treat to say thank you - after all she is 6, and I know how much 6 year olds enjoy cleaning their bedrooms!

Camp Love Notes

I just sent my daughter off to a week long horse summer camp.
The worst part for me is this is a new camp for her.... Now she has been in girl guides for 7 years, so this isn't a new thing, but she has never gone away to this camp before. I know it sounds a bit strange, but I am a bit of a worrier, and I'm sure she will make great new friends, but part of me also thinks maybe, just maybe she might miss home just a little.
So to comfort my worrying, and to help comfort her home sickness (if she has any) I made her little 'camp love notes'

Sorry for the terrible photo, I didn't have long to figure it out, as I was trying to be secretive... 
I started with blank pages, but needed to add a bit of color & fun to each.

Jaded Blossom May Challenge

Jaded Blossom is hosting yet another fun challenge over here!
The theme this month is Go Wild! Any Wild Animal

So I decided to make a fun hedgehog treat for my hubby.
I'm going to put it in his lunch tomorrow - wonder how he will react ;) 
I will be there (we work together) if it's good, I'll let you know!

I used a hedgehog treat from the silhouette store.
I used a 3x4 bag from the Jaded Blossom store, along with card mat dies & cheesy pick ups 3.
I love these stamps - all of them are so much fun!
Of course the face is stamped with a peachy keen set - critters.

Easter Treats For You

After weeks of little to no time for crafting, I was able to head down to my craft room, well my desk anyway to start getting crafts ready for next weekend. 

As my kids get older, it's not as easy to find cute fillers, so I decided to make a ticket book with a couple iTunes gift cards. After all who doesn't enjoy iTunes!?! 

I used the Ticket Book dies from Jaded Blossom, as well as Easter Treats 3 stamps for my sentiment.
I cut out this adorable KaDoodle freebie from the hop this weekend. I used some Peachy Keen stamps for the chicks face. I added some Grape Fizz & Twisted Gumball twine from Trendy Twine. I used a few recollections enamel dots to add a little pop to my project.

I used the Gift Card Die from Jaded Blossom as well for the inserts of my little book.

I will also be entering this into Jaded Blossom's March Challenge :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Trio of Sister Shirts

I'm sure you have seen it floating over the internet.... The TRIO of sister shirts! I have two sisters & know it would be perfect for them, but instead of making them for us, I had a friend contact me to make them for her and her sisters!

I went with a black T & some hot pink glitter :)

Of course the pictures never do the glitter justice!

Happy Birthday 97!!

Today is a special card making day! 
It's for my hubby's Grandpa, who is also just as much my Grandpa, even if I didn't know him the first 19 years of my life. In 5 days he will be celebrating his 97th birthday!
Now that is worth celebrating!!

For his card I wanted to have it a star theme, after all he is a superstar!
And of course I needed it to be manly & simple.

Good Friends

It was my bestie's birthday this past week. I needed to make a card for her & bought this Jaded Blossom stamp set especially with her in mind. Of course I will be getting more use out of this set, but knew I would want to use it first on her card!

I found the wine glass in the Silhouette store. I added glossy accents to the 'wine' to give it a little flair. I found a doily in my stash & spritzed it with a silver recollections spray ink to make it shimmer (which you can't see in the picture)

'good friends are like good wine,
they get better with age'

I cut out and layered hearts from the valentine dies. I used the heart from Tic Tac Toe, and BFF from Best Friends. I love the many versatile fonts from So Many Birthdays! 

Card Mat Dies
Valentine Dies
Wine O'clock
Best Friends
Tic Tac Toe freebie

All from Jaded Blossom (of course)

Just Because

I definitely couldn't send my nephew a get better card & not send one to my niece. 
So I made a 'Just Because' card for her to let her know I miss her!

I wanted to make a fun base for my card. I tore off washi tape & covered my base piece. I then ran it through my big shot with the card base die from Jaded Blossom to get this great base with stitching!
I stamped two little bunnies in the background, as she has pet bunnies that live outside at her house.
I added a princess that I colored with dimensionals.  And stamped the sentiment with StazOn ink.

Accidents Happen

My nephew had a little sledding accident last week. His little face got a huge cut on his cheek.
I thought it would be fun to send him a get well card.

I wanted a fun background, so I used some washi tape. I ran the base though my big shot with the card base die from Jaded Blossom. I stamped the two sentiments and attached my monster with dimensionals.

Treat Yourself - Guest Design Jaded Blossom

Hello everyone! 
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
I am the guest designer for Jaded Blossom this month.
I found this little teapot in the silhouette store & knew I wanted to make a fun treat.

The lid comes off & I put a couple little teabags inside :)

I decorated it with Spring Dies & Spa Candies. 
I just love how easily Jaded Blossom helps to 'dress up' any little project.
I added a Twisted Gumball twine bow as a little extra touch!

I hope you've enjoyed my project today. 
I love reading your comments & having new followers - feel free to do either or, or both!
Certainly makes my day!
