{Christmas Cards and other misc. items}

Well I have been making cards like crazy, but have not posted them.  Here is a cute Halloween card I made with the Making Memories Dollar Stamp set. This was a total lift from K. Werner at Two Peas.  She makes awesome cards!

This was so simple to make and super cute!

Here is another idea from K Werner.  She used a Basic Grey Stamp for her card, but I love this Butterfly and just had to use it.  Very simple stamp the card and then go in with a white gel pen.

For this card I embossed with clear powder I love the simple look of this card. 

Well I will post more soon.  Hope your weekend is going well!

{Unity FFF}

I have been on a mission to get Christmas Cards done and forgot about my Grandfather's birthday.  I am not great at making masculine cards and started to panic about what I was going to do.  Well I went to my Unity stamps for inspiration.  I used the ledger stamp for this card.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  Was super simple to make too.  I love this stamp!

I also used PTI Card stock and Ribbon
Thanks for visiting! Have a great weekend.

{14year Anniversary and Christmas Card Sampling}

Yesterday was our 14 year Wedding Anniversary.  We have technically been together for 19 years.  Yesterday was quite amusing.  I called to make reservations for The Melting Pot for Friday when my son will be at his Grandparent's house, I picked balloons for the table and a card.  I thought this was such a special treat since we used to go there when we were dating.  Upon arriving home last night I was greeted with streamers and a cute sign, and flowers courtsey of my son, Aaron.  Such an awe moment. Then I was told to get changed we were going out to dinner, all of us.  When we arrived at the resturant I just has to laugh, my hubby had made reservations at The Melting Pot.  It was so funny.  The guy who took my reservation never said anything and when we arrived we were the talk of the night.  There were flowers on the table and a card.  Another awe moment for the night.  He is such a sweet heart.  He even wrote Love you in my Facebook Farmville Farm without me knowing.  I mean is that a sign of the times or what?  I love this man, my friend, husband, and father of my son!  14 years and going strong.  Maybe next year I can surprise him with something nice and original.

I have been a super busy elf making all types of Christmas Cards.  I am on a mission to get each person a  Christmas Card this year, handmade.  Here are some that I have been working on.  I have used a ton of Paper Trey Ink and some cute $1 stamps from Joann's.  I pulled out the embossing gun this year.  I have not used that in a long time! I also found some super cute ribbon at Michael's and ribbon is my obsession.

I am going to try and post some new cards and gift card holders each day. Once again I am trying to be a busy elf! Wish me luck.

{Paper Trey Ink}

 I have a new addiction, stamps.  I actually used to work at a stamp store in a local mall. Now I have come full circle. Paper Trey Ink and Unity Stamps have fueled the fire.  I have been on a note pad making frenzy.  Here are some that I made as gifts.

I have been hard at work making Christmas Cards too.  I will post those through out the week.  I am sorry for the crappy photos, I left my camera on the wrong setting.
This past weekend my sister-in-law had the great idea of taking pictures of the kids to give to my parents for the holidays.  So all dressed in white t-shirts and jeans we set off to my parent's backyard to snap away.  Well what do you get with 4 boys who really do not want to have their pictures taken.

Almost cute shots - even with a chair in the background

Just plain old cute kids!  and two frustrated Moms.
