Welcome to the world little one!

I found this Happy Birthday card on Pinterest.. there's no watermark and it doesn't go to a site, so I'm not positive on who made the original.

I made it a baby card and used Bo Bunny, Basic Grey, Crate, and The Girls Paperie!

August Card Challenge - Sketch!

 Here is the sketch I created for the August Card Challenge that I host on

As always, feel free to use it for your own personal inspiration!

My card was completely Disney inspired! The signs are not at all accurate of where the lands are at Disneyland, but that's okay!

Junior Kindergarten!

My niece started Junior Kindergarten on Wednesday. I was very bummed to find out that I wouldn't get to spend everyday with her but I knew she would have a blast at school! For almost 5 years, I've spent probably 95% of her life with her. She's an awesome little girl and I couldn't love her any more than I do! Here's a picture of us the other day.. we were playing spies!

 I make my nieces cards that they can't open until they turn 16. In the cards I write about what they're doing at certain points in their life... this will be one of them!

I made this for the August Card Challenge for Theme, which is Back to School and for Photo Inspiration, which you can see, HERE.

She told me I could call Junior Kindergarten, Jr. K if I wanted!

August Card Challenge: Color, Product and Lift

Here are some of my cards for the August Card Challenge and they're not even due tomorrow! lol, I know... it doesn't happen too often like this!

This card is for the Color category.. here are the colors we needed to use..

I used We R Memory Keepers Out and About Stamps called "Neighborhood". I inked them up with Color Box and Martha Stewart Inks.

You can see the sentiment better in person, but it says "Congratulations on your new home".

I found this gem on Pinterest.. This Wish Card was made by Valerie_AM and the photo was on Flickr.

I added a "make a" stamp and some splattered paint to mine.

This was the card for the Lift category this month. Happy Birthday was made by Donnajazz on

I used K & Co.'s "Poppyseed line for this card.

I used Crackle Accents on the chipboard heart and don't you LOVE that button?! It's scrumptious!

Wednesday Rewind #9

Welcome to the 9th Wednesday Rewind!

Let's start off with the winner of MFDWR#8... the winner is..... Tracy F!
On the 5th of every month I will post a card that I made from a couple months ago up to a couple years and I will lift the card.
How do you play?
Lift the card also! You can turn it, add to it, take away from it, as long as I can still see the original sketch in your card!
You can use other challenges with this one, as long as the card is for your own personal use. I don't mind if you use this challenge and sell the card you made, but please do not submit it to be published.

Example: It can be for a Design Team sample, but not used as a card to get you on to a DT. If you're unsure, just drop me an e-mail on the right, thanks!!
Make sure to leave your link in the widget when you're finished to be up for the prize at the end of the month!
This is a monthly challenge. Come back on the 5th of every month for a new card to lift!

There will be a small prize given every month.
The winner will be picked from to be fair and square!

(Made Fresh Daily Wednesday Rewind #9)

 I made this card on 4.21.2011.

I made this for my boyfriend Joey and sent it to him a week before we went on our cruise!!

 I made this card on 7.17.12 for a customer who needed an Anniversary card for her boyfriend! She requested black and red.. I really like how it came out.. "boy cards" are not my favorite to make!!

Camo Bibs!!

I can't believe I haven't posted in 5 days! I have been SUPER busy making cards! I participated in a Quarter Auction today.. I'll tell you more about that later!!

On to the bibs!

I thought it would be fun to see if I could make some bibs! I used the Iron On Vinyl that I use for my Disneyland Map Wallets so you can just wipe the food off, you don't have to run it through the washing machine.

I also made a catch all pocket!

Topped it off with some velcrow.

And try them on! They fit both of my nieces perfectly!
