My Pink Stamper Blog Hop

Hey, I'm back! Here is my cards I made for the blog hop over at My Pink Stamper. I am starting to get into these blog hops. Especially now that I have figured out how to post on them, details, details. I made two cards. the rainbow one is from "Hello Kitty" and the hat one is from "Paper Doll Dress Up". The shamrocks are from "Paper Doll Dress Up". Of course I had to use stickles and gems. I also like the buttons. I love the color green so this was perfect for me. Go over to and see some more really cute ideas and join the blog hop.
I don't have any Pink Stamper stamps yet. But income tax money is coming soon :). Hubby promised me a little of it, so there you go. I already know which one I want too. Here are the cards.
This is a monumental day, two posts in one day, LOL.
Time to finish getting my laundry out of the dryer, set the clocks ahead an hour and head for bed. After church we are having family time to celebrate some birthdays. We are so lucky that we all live in the same town. God Bless you all.

graduation cards

Okay I made my first submission to cricut magazine. I have more in the works. I did two variations of a Graduation gift card/money holder card. We will see. When ever I look at the magazine cards they always look so simple to make and they are, so I tried to keep mine simple this time too.

My son graduates this year and I asked him which card he liked best and he chose the one on the right, because it has some pretty embossing on it. He told me to keep them because I will be needing them. I wasn't able to get the inside pictures to line up right on the screen but both of them have a place for either a gift card or money. In the picture below the embossing looks like a kite, but it is really a graduation hat. The one on the left looks like the owl has chicken pox, LOL. Well need to get busy on the rest of my projects. My next one is a scrapbook pet page. The page is done, I just need to get my dog to sit still long enough for a  picture.That will be harder to do than the page was. Have a great weekend my friends and God bless you all.

Hump Day...

I am so glad we are on our way to the weekend. I don't think I have anything happening Saturday. Then Sunday after church we will be celebrating my husbands birthday and mine, which was yesterday. I hate when it is on a weekday and a Tuesday at that. If it hadn't been for the box of chocolates, two cards with gift cards inside and all the well wishes on facebook, it would have felt like any other Tuesday. I woke at 5:00 a.m., was at work by 6:25. Got off at 12:30 and went over to my daughters house to watch my grand-daughter. That was the best part of the day, you'll have to go to past entries to see pictures, LOL. Then was home by 6:00 and ate a frozen pizza. Oh yeah my daughter made me birthday cupcakes. Thank you Becky.
 I am hoping to have the energy to do some cards or scrapbook or do something crafty, Saturday. We went to Anaheim for the scrapbook Expo, a couple of weekends ago and I am still trying out all the goodies we got there. I have been allotted some of our tax return for the Expo when it comes here to San Diego in May. I can't wait!!! :) Well thanks for visiting. I'm hoping to have some pictures to post this weekend. God bless you and have a great week!

Babies First Year...

I was invited to a former employees baby shower today. She stated on her invitation that they were going with a jungle theme for their new little girl. Times being what they are, I decided to make her a "Babies First Year" mini album. I think it turned out so cute. I used the jungle animals from Create a Critter. I made one pocket page for each month. But instead of putting the months on the tabs, I wrote the numbers, 1-12. I found a stack of paper that was perfect for the backgrounds for each page. Then I stamped a journaling heart for the mommy to be to write a little note to her precious little girl. Each month has a place for a picture on the outside and a pull out page for more fun pictures, mementos or what ever. On some of the pages I added 2 1/2 inch jungle animal from the Create a Critter cartridge. I wasn't able to stay for the whole time so I didn't get to see her open her gifts, I hope she enjoys it. It was fun to make and didn't take me that long to make. I have made one for myself except I put the months on the tabs. I almost forgot to take a picture for February. I ended up taking a picture of our cat doing what he does best, sleeping on my extra craft table chair. But then I remembered something else that happened in February and put that in there too. I love mini albums because they don't take as much effort for me to do a page. So thats my mini album. Have a great Saturday, God bless you all.
