Hi, everyone! Sorry I have been MIA this past week. We have been so busy trying to find and buy a house that I really haven't had time to do anything else. The house we had previously put a bid on went sour, so we had to start over. So we went up to Clarksville this past weekend and found a house that we love. We put an offer in and it was accepted. We close on Dec. 5. We are so excited!! We move from here the middle of December. So now that you know the great news, I will get on with the card!
I really went out of my comfort zone with this card. I usually stick to rectangle cards. For the circle base I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The scalloped circle frame was from Mini Monograms. The patterned paper is Sassafras Lass. I used Stampin Up!'s A Flower for all Seasons stamp set. I colored it in with Prisma Pencils and OMS. The "Happy Birthday" is from Lizzie Anne Designs. Hope you all enjoy. Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Hi, everyone! I finally started on Christmas cards! I finally got settled after our quick trip to house hunt. We found a house and put an offer in. Now we just have to wait and see if they accept our offer! It is driving me CRAZY! Enough about that! On to the card.
This card was very simple to make! I used white cardstock as my base. Both of the patterned papers are DCWV Christmas Stack 2007. The stamps are Studio G. I stamped them with Staz-On Timber Brown ink. I colored the ornaments with Prismas and OMS. I added Stickles to the ornaments. The eyelets were some that came with my Crop a Dile. Very simple! Thanks for looking! Have a great day!!

Hello, everyone!! I know I said I was done with Fall cards, but I have one more to show! This was for a swap I participated in. I thought I had already posted, but I looked back and didn't see it.
The seed packet template was from SCSer Katydid creations(?), but her website is no longer viewable and I don't think she is active with SCS anymore. The pumpkin and leaf stamp are from SU!'s Autumn Harvest. I stamped them with Staz-On Timber Brown ink. I colored them with Prismas and OMS. I shaded the pumpkin and leaf with brown chalk. The patterned paper is from A.C. Moore, but I don't know the brand. I used Wild Wasabi cardstock to mat the seed packet. The ribbon is American Crafts.
Thanks so much for looking! I will be out of town for a couple of days, so no posts for several days. I will try to get around to everyone's blogs before we leave, but I'm just not sure how much time I will have! We are going to look at houses where we will be moving! Wish us luck! I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Hey, everyone! My husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary Saturday! Time has really flown by. In the above picture are things I made for him. A card, of course. And also, I made him a mini pizza box. On the inside are love coupons and Hershey kisses. The card is similar to the one I posted previously. The patterned paper and heart on the pizza box is Sassafrass Lass. The Love of a Lifetime stamp is from Stampin up!'s So Many Sayings.
The above picture is with the box open. I did not get an individual picture of the coupons, but they are peeking out from behind the kisses. Thanks for looking! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Comments are always welcome!!

Hi! I just have a few minutes to post, so it's gonna be quick. I finally got to play with my new Pocket Silhouettes stamp set. I love every stamp in this set. They are so versatile. You can use them for anything!
For this card, I used my Cricut and Mini Monograms to cut out the tan circle. The blue patterned paper is Me and My Big Ideas. The green background paper is SEI. The ribbon is just some scraps I had. The Thinking of You sentiment is from Lizzie Anne Designs.
Thanks for looking! Everyone have a great day!

Hey, everyone! I was having trouble getting to sleep, so I decided to post a card. I made this card with some of the scraps I had from previous cards. The blue flowered patterned paper is DCWV spring stack 2007 (I think it was the spring stack). The green polka dot patterned paper is DCWV Nana's Kids. All the stamps are Studio G. The flowers are watercolored with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. The scalloped circle is a Cricut cartridge Mini Monograms. I made the holes with my eyelet setter. The scalloped border is decorative scissors and the holes are with the eyelet setter. The center of the flowers have glitter but it is hard to see. Also I tried to sew, but I kinda messed up. Guess I need more practice! Thanks for looking! Hope everyone has a great night!

This is a card I made for a swap. For the swap we had to use 2 of the following colors: red, white, and dark blue. I used rose red and whisper white. The stamped image is Stampin Up!'s Fun and Fast Notes. Colored it with Gamsol and Prisma pencils. The sentiment is Lizzie Anne Designs Simply Sentiments. Patterned paper is American Crafts. The flower on the bottom is done with the Cuttlebug Olivia font set. Brad is from Queen and Co. And just some simple sewing around the edges. Done with my Janome Sew Mini, which is an awesome machine! Thanks for looking!
