I'm Back!!

I guess I took the summer off!  I really didn't plan to, but I clearly have not updated AT ALL!!  I am so sorry to those of you who do look for some photos. 

This is a card made with a new 2011-2013 In Color: Calypso Coral and a new stamp set: Pennant Parade.

This card features the Button, Button stamp set and three new In Colors: Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, and Island Indigo.

This card features Lucky Limeade, the fifth new In Color for 2011-2013.
I hope you like these cards, I do plan on adding more as often as possible!!

Birthday Celebration

I have not disappeared, I just got a job!  Kindergarten is definitely exhausting!  Here are some cards I did in a workshop last week.  (I still have kits available if you are interested.) They are all made using Celebrations DSP and the Party This Way stamp set.

St. Pat's Luck!

I created this card for the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge SCIC #42!  I used Early Espresso and Pear Pizazz, which happened to be laying together on my craft table!  I also used the heart punch to make the 4-leaf clover.

Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day!

Upsy Daisy

How cute are these?  I got these clothespins for 25 cents (they have a magnet on the back) and used the Flower, Daisies #2 Die (#114520 IBC)  for the Big Shot to make the flowers.  There are 3 flowers on each, and the center is made with a Daffodil Delight button from the Brights Designer Buttons (#119747 IBC).

Spring Fever!!

It is finally approaching 80 degrees here in Florida!  I made this paper bag book using our Ice Cream Parlor Collection found exclusively in this year's Sale-A-Bration Catalog!!  I added some of last year's spring photos and left lots of spaces to add in this year's!
