Cuckoo for YOU!

Made this last night. I"m crazy about this card; I just love how it turned out! I used the January Diner's Club Set Sealed with a Kiss (pictured below). BTW, Gourmet Rubber Stamps is having a sale of 40% off the stamps. I used the current sketch challenge on SCS. No patterned paper only cardstock. The brown trim is by Doodlebug. I used Staz-On Brown and Distress ink Worn Lipstick. I colored the image with Koh-i-noor colored pencils. TFL!

Friends with Flair!

Hi! I have some Unity Christmas cards that I haven't posted. Very different styels, and some I like better than others. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and are having a great day today getting ready for it. I just pulled some homemade granola out of my oven and it smells heavenly and is so yummy! Need to get off the computer and go clean some more! :)

GRS DT Challenge

Our challenge for Gourmet Rubber Stamps this month was to make a birthday card with this color scheme!
Here is my card! I used the stamps from December's Diner's Club set Let's Celebrate. I made this crinkle ribbon with some old seam binding from Steve's grandma that had been in the seat of her sewing machine. Plus on the bottom is some handmade paper by Provo Craft. Add a little distress ink and distress the edges and there you have it! Thanks for stopping by!

Somebody is turning 5 today!!!

Who could it be?

Rebecca! So excited to see this big girl growing up. She loves to be goofy and she loves her sister. She is the girliest little girl too! I love my 5 year old!

Happy Birthday Rebecca!

Classic Santa Picture

Once we gave her the candy cane she stopped crying but then my flash wasn't working and the pictures turned out dark. What can you do?

The 10th Day of Christmas

My oldest and I went to the Nutcracker last night in San Francisco. It was magical! I had a card with glitter drying in my craft room while I was gone. I finished putting it together when I got back...I did not like it. So this one happened this morning. I love it! None traditional colors and the gold sparkle snowflakes!!! Love! I used the November Diner's Club Set Seasons Greetings by Gourmet Rubber Stamps. I stamped the sentiment and then the bough was stamped around the sentiment. This is on the GRS facbook page for their 12 Days of Christmas Cards, so go check it out! Thanks for looking!!

What we are growing in December.

Yep, it is December and Rebecca planted these plants maybe a month or so ago. I think this top one is lettuce (feel free to correct me if I"m wrong). The second picture I think is a melon and the last is either beans or sugar snap peas. I had seed packets on a shelf in my garage and Rebecca decided they needed to be planted. So there you have it. My oldest has a green thumb and I stay away or I will kill them with my black thumb. :)

Happy Friday Caterpillar to Butterfly

I love this big sentiment! I made this little mini book and kept it pretty simple. I wanted it girly, stitched, butterflies, and floral. This kit made it super easy to do just that. You can buy this at my etsy store here. Thanks for stopping by and for the comment, I really appreciate them! Also go check out the other FWF crowd at Unity's blog here. Happy Holidays!

The paper is by Stemma Victorian line.
