Happy Tuesday!! some sneak peeks...I have been a busy busy bee try to get my kits together. Still not done but getting there! Here is a sneak peak of what I have been doing. I have a men's vintage kit done and a flower kit done. Working on another flower kit and a vintage bathing beauty kit. Also want to do a few others. Hopefully they will sell so I can go on my trip of a lifetime! I plan on bringing them to my monthly stamp group at my friends and to my class I teach. Just have to write up the directions on the ones I have done already. Keeping my hopes up that they will sell!
Heading out for a few groceries then back down to my craft area to keep creating. Thanks for stopping by! TTYL

Good Morning! I cant believe its a new week already! Yesterday my baby turned 24...we celebrated by going out for hibachi dinner. It was nice.
 This is the card I made her. I used stamps from Paper Smooches. The toenails and bottom of the shell were dark green but when I added what I thought was clear glaze it turned white. oops...grabbed the wrong pen! But she loved it any way!
 I am sooo excited! I have the opportunity of a lifetime ( for me anyway) I'm going on a cruise to Europe!! Never been on a cruise and never really been on vacation either. My husband thinks vacations are a waste of money. But he did agree to pay half if I can come up with the other half.
I am making card kits to sell. Just finished my men's vintage set. I plan on doing a vintage bathing suit set, a flower card set and several others. I hope they sell! I like how the men's cards turned out. Guy cards are so much harder for me to make I guess because they cant have flowers, bling, etc!
Well, off to get busy on those. See you soon!

Playing with my Silhouette again! Was able to use my scraps on these cards. There is a learning curve with the Silhouette but I am finally starting to "get it."
Well, I am doing my daughters taxes..I know..last minute. What can I say?
See you tomorrow! Have a great day!

 Had a busy,busy weekend! Friday night was a 50th Birthday party for a friend. I made the doll tag to put on  her present. It turned out soo cute! It was a lot of fun to make. The party was fun. She had a DIY photo booth with cute props. We giggled quite a bit trying on different hats and lips and moustaches.
Sunday, I took the Heidi Swapp class at Archivers. Loved the project, the class not so much...Came home and took my book apart and rebound it and now it is much better. Now I am working on embellishing it. And we went to Red Lobster after the class. Mmmm
 The middle card I made with a digital freebie stamp. I know it looks upside down but that's the way they intended the image to be. I love ladybugs so I couldn't wait to make something with it.
 My final card is made with Paper Smooches stamps and  I can't take credit for the design. I copied it from something I saw. Its simple but sometimes simple is good, right?
Well I'm off to get in the shower. Pretty soon it will be lunch time and I'm still in my PJs.
Have a great day!

This is one of the limited edition stamps from The Greeting farm. Her name is the Hatter Bean. Isn't she cute? So much fun to color!I fussy cut her out and popped her up to give my card some dimension. I used my favorite colors on this card too. Added some clear glaze to spots and used my glitter pens for a little sparkle. Tiny pearl for her button...Have a great day!
I am taking the Heidi Swapp class at Archivers. Cant wait! It should be fun...2 other friends are going also having dinner after at Red Lobster..YUM!

Playing with my Silhouette again! Just a simple little card with the flower I made. The hello was from a TGF die but I could have cut it out of the Silhouette too! A few little rhinestones for bling and a pearl flower brad for the center. Happy Crafting!

Hello! Hope you are having a great day! I have been busy crafting. Finished another little book. I used some new Doodlebug papers from a 6x6 pack. They were so fun! Most of the pages have a tag or photo mat that is removable. It was a fun little project! Sometimes I get bogged down with things I HAVE to create. It was nice to just do something for the fun of it! Thanks for dropping in!
