 Hello! Guess I'm in a buggy mood today.I had a lot of these parts laying around on my craft table so I decided to make cards out of them.The stamps are by Paper Smooches. The other things were cut with my Silhouette. Love the honeycomb background I cut out! Also thought the butterflies were kind of fun. The background paper on the bottom bee card is the Heidi Swapp color resist paper. I sponged on the yellow to make it look like a honeycomb. Its pretty neat to work with!
 Spent the weekend with my daughter. Went to a doll show yesterday and just "hung out" today. I told her I felt bad we didn't do anything today but she said she just likes being "home". Plus she enjoys raiding my craft supplies to take back with her to create with. She is very creative! I am in awe of some of the things she makes.
 Thanks for dropping by today. I hope its a good start to your week.
See you soon!

Hello! Happy Thursday!
This card all started with this owl tag that I got from Michael's. They came from a pack in the dollar section. I used a chevron embossing folder to add some texture to my card. The heart is a Heidi Swapp color resist item. Love these! I added some leaves cut out with my sizzix and added a Tim Holtz ticket that I sponged and added some bling. Oh...I also used some washi tape down the side to bring in more of the teal/aqua color. Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Quick post...I cut this flower out with my Silhouette..yes, its getting a workout! I just LOVE it!
 I was in a purpley mood. This card would be good for any occassion but I decided to do a sympathy sentiment. I never seem to have those when I need them.
I also want to share a funny video with you! I have been having a bad couple of days and my son sent it to cheer me up! I can relate with the second goat. Its just what I need to do!! Hope you get a laugh out of it too!

 I had a great weekend! Spent Saturday with friends at a crop for 12 hours...eating,crafting,shopping,laughing,talking... I LOVE my friends. They bring so much joy to my life!
 These are cards I am making for the hospitals cancer treatment center. They get aprox 245(!) people a DAY! receiving treatment for cancer. They wanted to be able to give a card to each person on Valentines day. I love to use my hobby to do good things for people. Hope they get a little smile on their face when they receive the card. My friend also helped me. She made some cards as well. If I would have found out sooner I could have gotten way more done but..I'm hoping to have 75 done by the deadline.
All of these were cut out with my new Silhouette..LOVE that machine! Not gonna give up my Cricut though. They both have their good points vs. bad points. Thanks for popping in today. Happy Crafting!

Got some of the Hello Kitty cards done. I think I'm going to make a couple more. They are so fun to make! I think she will be in the rehab for quite awhile so I might make a bigger one to hang on her wall while she is there.
 This happy little bee is from Paper Smooches. I used an embossing folder by Tim Holtz for the honeycomb background. also used a little washi tape on top.
 Have a good day and see you soon..

Happy Wednesday!
 Still playing with my Silhouette! The blue bird was made with it too. Yes, you can print AND cut! Love that! Used up some scraps on my desk and some washi tape. I added a few rhinestones for a little bling. Really happy with my purchase. 
 Tomorrow I will have some Hello Kitty cards to show you. My friends sister loves Hello Kitty and she is in the hospital and headed to a nursing home for rehab. I thought if I made her some cards it would cheer her up!
Have a great day.
 See you tomorrow!

Howdy! Made 2 cards last night with this cute digi stamp. His name is Archie from Digistamp Boutique. Pretty basic cards...wasn't feeling very creative. Hope you are having a great day. Hoping to get down to my craft room after dinner. Spent most of the afternoon at the hardware store. I'm proud of myself! Got the right things all by myself. If I wait for "my other half" to get it, I will be waiting a looong time. He works many, many hours and when he finally decides to come home the stores are usually closed. My son moved out so I have to rely on myself now. Not to say I don't text him and bug him about stuff..LOL! I am woman, hear me roar! Watch out she comes!

I challenged myself to make some cards with colors I normally wouldn't choose... Not thrilled with the result but they will do. Cut the flowers out with the Silhouette. The chevrons and butterfly were from it as well.  Thanks for dropping by..I think I'm gonna take a nap. I'm exhausted for some reason. See you soon! I'm hoping to make some valentine cards tonight with a really cute digi image I got.

 Good afternoon! I guess all the schools around here are closed except our city. We only got a slight dusting of snow. But...Its really COLD outside! Brrr.....
I was playing around last night with a few things from Michaels. They were having a 90% off sale!
The butterfly on the tag is an emboss resist. All you do is sponge on the ink and the white areas stay white. I think they were 19 cents a bag. I used some washi tape on the tag as well. I'm going to put it on a card. I am into making tags lately..good change of pace for me.
These birds were another find at 90% off...they were plain wood and I just glued on scraps that were on my desk. I'm going to put some magnets on the back. For the set of three I paid 35 cents! Should have picked up some more but didn't know for sure what I was going to do with them. I love them..Super Cute! and super simple to make!
 Hope the rest of your day is Fantastic. I have to do a newsletter for a group I'm in then I MUST get to cleaning. Happy Crafting!
