I’ve been busy!….

22 Sep

Hello Blog Friends!…

I have been busy crafting up a storm in preparation for some fun classes at The Cutting Garden!  Here a look at what I have come up with so far….

Fun Right?  I really like these darker colors although my camera doesn’t seem to much but they are a cute as can be in real life.  Well I am making the most I can out of my Saturday in my craft room.  It’s very rainy here today so It is the perfect opportunity to get creating!

I hope everyone has a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Thursday Everyone!  Friday is almost here thank goodness!  This has been a long week!  I needed some thank you cards for my stash so I whipped up a couple last weekend but I haven’t had a chance to post them until now….

I am going to have to go on another hunt for beads for my pins, my collection is getting low and I think they make such a pretty addition to the cards.  Today is another work day for me so I am off to get ready!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Birthday to ME!

18 Sep

I had a fantastic day today…. My lovely co-workers decorated my desk at work and took me out to lunch…. I received Birthday Wishes from about 1000 people it seemed!!!  I worked today and my Blackberry kept going off indicating I got a new notification on my Facebook page as well as The Cutting Garden Facebook page!  WHOA!  Do I Feel Popular!!!!  A girl could get used to all of this wonderful treatment!!!!

So I get in the door from work and my friend Carol is on the phone saying she is coming over with my cake!!!!  OMG!  Look at this sinful piece of heaven!!!!….

Strawberry Supreme Cheese Cake!  Carol knows me so well because I dislike regular cake… especially the icing… I DETEST icing *shudder*  She had it all pre-sliced for me and I couldn’t wait to dive in.  I laughed at the look on Tony’s face when I gave him a small piece of it….. he said…. “Lisa this cake is going to last too long!!! It has 16 slices!!!  No worries…. he can have as many pieces as he wants.  OMG it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!    THANK YOU CAROL!!!! *HUGS*  Wow what a lovely treat!  And to top it off, I got a big fat gift certificate to The Cutting Garden!!!  I can’t wait to hit the Die isle and snag me a few more of the new ones Kim has in!!!

*Happy Sigh*  It’s great to be 30…… again 😉  WoooooHoooooo!!

I Hope everyone has a great evening!!!

Another RAK!

Happy Sunday everyone!  My husband got me a new Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set for my birthday and I couldn’t wait to rip it out of the box and start punching!  This set is VERY new to me!  I have never seen it before it is called Flourish Lace.  I love it!!!  Check this out…

We are staying close to home today after a very busy weekend.  It’s back to work tomorrow so there are lots of chores to do around the house.  I hope everyone is having a nice day!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Friday Everyone!

I have some pretty Gift Bags to share with you today 🙂  I am spending tomorrow at The Cutting Garden teaching how to make these!  They are super easy and tons of fun to make!

Ms. Lauren, my lovely Aussie friend, and I have been challenging each other to play with our Hello Doily stamps!  I decided to make a gift bag this time to tantalize her.  Check out Lauren’s lovely creations HERE!  She has a fantastic blog with loads of tutorials and beautiful creations!

Okay… here are my gift bags….

How’s that Lauren????  Do I get a passing grade?

Okay here is the rest of the bags….

I wanted to have some gift bags made up to give the ladies some ideas for tomorrow’s class.

I hope everyone is having a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!
