For no reason...

A couple of weeks ago I had a little time to craft and no particular project to work on so this is what I came up with...

A fun little cherry card. I just love this cut from Nifty Fifties, that was my inspiration for this one. On the cherries and leaves I heat embossed the layers twice to make them nice and shiny (hard to tell in this pic.) I used my cute little pink Dymo Caption maker for the words, isn't it perfect? I left the inside blank so I can decide what to use the card for later.

This card was inspired by this cute lady on her Vespa from the Sweethearts cart. I've always wanted to make her. Of course I had to add my paper flowers and some bling. The card background was embossed with one of the new Cuttlebug All In One sets, I used a border from the Thank You set.
I left the inside of this one blank as well.

It's nice to know that I have a few blank cards on hand now for when things pop up.

Have a very blessed day!

I'm gonna get a cavity...

...from all these super sweet goodies! Last week I won a give-away on Free Pretty Things for You blog. I was given a $10 credit to Sugar Sweet Botique's store, trust me, it was like being a little kid in a candy store! Of course I "HAD" to get more than just $10 worth of goodies, but I didn't spend that much and look at what I got....

Bubble Gum Pink & Sugar White Striped Ribbon, Bubble Gum Pink & Lime Green Checked Ribbon, Aqua & Bubble Gum Pink Baker's Twine, Sweet Treat Sparkling Crystal Pins,
Peppermint Red and White Cupcake Trim, Valentine Mix Pink, Red & White Berry Beads.  Jennifer also added some Petal Pink and Baby Blue Pearl Garland Trim and some sweet Pink Paper Crowns!

All the trims were tied up with vintage seam binding (I am so obsessed with that stuff right now!) and Jennifer shipped off my goodies so quick! THANK YOU JENNIFER! (no, I'm not shouting.)

Now, what to make?????  I haven't even had time to think about it....maybe next weekend!

Have a very blessed day!

Congratulations Katie!

Here's the graduation card I made for Susan's wonderful, smart, and talented daughter, Katie. She graduated from high school this past Sunday, with like a million honors to boot! I don't think Susan could be any prouder!
All layers on this card (except the black of course) were cut with my lovley pearlescent Hobby Lobby paper then dyed by me. No regular paper would do for Katie-Miss Artist! Card base is from Elegant Edges and the letter K is brought to you by Winter Woodland. (Yes, I'm being feisty right now, it's been a looooong week!)

Here is a set of note cards I made dear Katie as well. My dear sweet daughter who is friends with Katie approved of all design and color choices. It was nice to have her input because she doesn't craft with me very often. The little tag is a punch I picked up a couple weeks ago at JoAnn's. It's by E K Success and it's slim profile which makes it easy to store. I love the thing! This time the letter K is brought to you by some fancy clear alphabet set Susan and I picked up a few years ago at a scrapping convention. The background stamp (on the tan paper) was a foam backed re-positional stamp from Hobby Lobby. I'm trying to expand my horizons here and try "new" things......

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
