You're one of a kind... you make my heart flutter!

Happy Friday Night! Did you win the lotto tonight? Did you even play? We did... and got one number and one mega number!

Can you imagine $640 MILLION dollars? I can't, lol. On Tuesday I took my 4 year old niece with me to pick numbers. She was more fascinated in the toys in the liquor store than anything else though!! I asked her I won, what does she think I would buy? Her answer was.. "toys for me!". I asked if she thought my boyfriend would buy me a ring.. she said "No, but maybe a car". She said my Dad would buy food and she said if she won, she would buy toys for her little sister!

I vote on the ring, but hey, whatever. =]

On to the cards!

I used Clean & Simple Sketch #183 for this card.

For this card, I used Sweet Sunday Sketch #155. I bought those My Little Shoebox tree stamps at the Scrapbook Convention last month. So cute, right?

I stamped on the kraft cardstock and on the green patterned paper and used pop dots to lift them.

Easter Egg Card!!

I made this card for the March Card Challenge for the Theme (Easter) & the Product (fabric) categories.

I got this tag years ago at our used to be local scrapbook store.. I guess I've been saving it for a rainy day! =]

My Mom makes fun of me when I hand stitch on cards... lol, but I always think I'm going to some how break her machine!!

Ten Years Older...

I love everything about this card! The colors, of course are my favorite! It's very.. "Spring is coming, Spring is coming!"

For this card I played along with Sketch #233 at Mojo Monday. I also decided to flip the sketch counter clockwise.

I used Basic Grey's "Plumeria" 6x6 paper pad for this card.

"To me, old age is always TEN YEARS older than I am." John Burroughs

I remember when I thought 30 was old... now that I'm turning 27 this year, I don't think it is at all, lol.

I used a Basic Grey Bloomer from the Capella line and it matched perfectly!

March Card Challenge Catch up!

I don't know why I wait until the last week of the month to finish all my cards for the Card Challenge! I really need to stop doing that! But, please enjoy!

This card is the for the Sketch Category. You can find the March Sketch in the right column of my blog under 2012 Card Sketches.

I wish I could be so clever to make this sentiment up.. but I did not! I saw it in Her Royal Awesomeness' gallery, which you can see HERE.

I bought these cute mustaches from If you don't know about that site, go check it out! It's a daily deal type site and every day they have super cute things!

This card couldn't be more out of my comfort zone! Like I told my boyfriend when he asked why, I said, "I don't do fancy!" I do however like how it came out.

This card was made for the Lift category. We lifted AndreaEwen's card "Pink Ruffled Ribbon". You can see it HERE.

For the ruffly ribbon part I used 2 strips of ribbon and overlapped them so it looks like one long piece. I the glue rhinestones in the center.

I got these flowers at the Scrapbook Convention.. there's probably 15-20 on a "ribbon" and I just cut them off to use!

I love this card! It looks so neat when it's finished! This card is for the Technique category, to make a Quilted Card. You can find directions on Split Coast Stampers, HERE.

Thanks for looking! Come back tomorrow for last weeks Instagram photos!

Snacks in Cabo

One of the stops on our cruise last year was in Cabo San Lucas. We walked around and were getting hungry so we stopped at Alexander's and had some calamari and the best coconut shrimp EVER. It was so good!

This layout was made for the March Scraplift the person before you Challenge on I lifted MissaOnTheRun's "Buried Treasures".

I used mostly Echo Park's Play Date for this layout.

Guest Designer @ Trendy Twine Blog!

I'm so very excited to be the guest designer today over at the Trendy Twine Blog! I want to thank Stacey for asking me to do so!! You can check our Stacey's blog here: Stacey's Creative Corner.

I was asked to use the Twisted Lime Trendy Twine.

For the card I used burlap, so cross-stitching wasn't the easiest on it, but by looking at it after it was finished, you'd never know it!

I found a shamrock icon on Google Images, traced it on my burlap and stitched the outside first, then the inside.

For my treat bag, this actually started out as a standard size brown lunch bag. I cut it down to the size I wanted and glued one side back together. I then traced a top note on the front and cut it out. I put acetate in the window so you can see the yummy Apple Licorice inside.

I put two eyelets at the top and tied and bow with the Twisted Lime Trendy Twine and added a button!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!

Have you heard of Instagram? Chances are you have and if you have, that means you're also using it! If not, it is an app that lets you share and edit photos. You can then share them on facebook/twitter right from the app. There's also people who host challenges. I'm doing one of the challenges by Fatmumslim. You can check out her blog right here.
