One of my nicest thoughts…

13 Sep

Good Morning!  Today is another busy day for me, I am off to work shortly and I thought I would do a quick post before I head out.  Today is the day of our staff BBQ and I have been shopping like mad this week to get ready.  We will be cooking for 200+ people so we really have to be organized!

Okay enough gab… here’s the card I have to share with you today….

This is a gate fold card and I used one of my favorite sentiments, it always makes me smile.

Well I’m off to pick up 250 hamburgers and veggie burgers!  My car is loaded to the roof! LOL!!

Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!


Butterflies & Flowers…

5 Sep

Good Morning Blog Friends,  It’s Wednesday already!  I am feeling a bit under the weather today but I wanted to pop on and share another pretty set of cards that I have made.  This time I used some Cheery Lynn Dies, Memory Box Butterfly die, some Stampin Up butterflies a friend sent to me and one of my flower punches….

Check out that pretty purple ribbon that Kim stocks at The Cutting Garden!  I love the stuff!  I am so addicted to ribbon and bow making, I have a couple of drawers FULL of the stuff and I just can’t wait until Kim gets more in! LOL!!!  Well I am off to see if a hot shower will make me feel better so I can get my day started!

I hope everyone has a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!!

Just Saying Hello….

Good Morning Blog Freinds!

I have a cute little note card to share with you today….

I found this sweet little layout on Pintrest and just have to give it a try.  I love the sweet purple buttons Kim has in stock at The Cutting Garden… I am slowly collecting all the colors, they are a fun addition to cards.

Well I’m off to work… this has been such a busy week!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Stampers Best…

6 Jul

Good Morning all and Happy Friday!  Today is my last day of work and then I am off for a week on Vacation!  I have some new stamps to play with while I am on vacation and this dress form by Stampers Best is one of them!

I am not overly thrilled over this card but I thought I would share it with you anyway.  *shrug* It’s not totally terrible, just doesn’t seem right to me so I need to go back to the drawing board with this stamp and have another go at it I think 🙂  I have a few more stamps from this company to play with and a couple of them are masculine so I will be making some new masculine inspiration for you shortly!  If you are interested, make sure you pop by and have a look!

Have a great day and thanks for popping by!!

Life is better with Friends….

Good Morning Blog Friends!  Wow it’s been an incredibility busy week for me, but that’s okay, busy is good!  I have been frantically cutting for a class that I am teaching tonight at The Cutting Garden and that has been taking up all of my time in the evenings so I haven’t been posting much this week.  I do have something to share with you in this quick post before I head off to work…I mad this card using the Vintage Rose Medallions stamp set from The Cutting Garden.  This stamp set has loads of  different options to stamp for family members and friends as well as some all occasion sentiments.

Well Its off to work I go!  I hope everyone has a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello Again Blog Friends….  I am really enjoying this butterfly die cut my Husband made for me….Doesn’t it make a fun little card?  I find it is perfect for using up all the wild bold patterned paper I have stashed and haven’t quite figured out what to use it for.   I have loads of paper to go through so you will be seeing this die cut quite a bit more in the future!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
