Sesame Street

Good Morning!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
I wanted to share a basket that I donated to a local group I'm involved with that raises money for local charities. We held an Auction and all proceeds went to charity.
I filled this with all kinds of summer stuff for kids...bubbles, sidewalk chalk etc.
It was a hit!

All the cuts are from Sesame Street.
Thanks for checking it out!

New Home~

Hope everyone is recovering from their St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Hubby has a head cold so we ended up staying home. We're trying to get him fixed up as quickly as possible because we leave for Florida tomorrow! YAY! We're going to visit my great aunt who's turning 80 and then we're going to spend a couple days at our favorite place...Disney World. Woo hoo! It's fun, because my mom and dad and another uncle and aunt are all going too! FUN!
Anyway, on to the card. I made this card for one of my hubby's cousins who just moved into a new home! The sketch is based of this week's MoJo Monday sketch. Click here.

The paper is from the DCWV Linen stack. I LOVE this stack. It's so soft and clean. The circles were cut from Nesties and the house is pop dotted. It was cut from My Community. I designed Home Sweet Home in Word. I amazed I added some soft blue adhesive peals. The bow looks a lot more green in the photo but it really is close to the blue paper in color.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Hope everyone finds a Pot O' Gold today!
I wanted to share another one of my baskets. This was one I did for the assisted living facility.
They we're having a big St. Patrick's Day party and wanted a prize.

I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the leprechaun, pots of gold, shamrocks and the horse shoe. Lucky was cut from Indie Art and the rainbow came from Hello Kitty Greetings. I added a few foam shamrocks on some of the die cuts. The beer was a cut file I found over at the Craft Edge- food forum.
Have a great day and Erin Go Bragh!

Construction Thanks!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Here in Ohio the temps are reaching nearly 50 degrees and the sun is shining! It's been GREAT! Got out walking with Brinkley a little bit! Hopefully we've seen the end of winter....knock on!
I wanted to share another bucket I did recently.
My mom and dad remodeled their kitchen and master bath. They tore EVERYTHING out. The whole project took 4 1/2 months. My mom wanted to do something for the lead contractor that did most of the work by himself! Over the months she got to know him pretty well and found out his favorite sports teams, adult beverages and restaurants and filled the bucket with goodies. Here's what I came up with on my!

Built Tough and Handle with care were both cut from Graphically Speaking. The little construction guy came from Everyday Paper Dolls. I found paper that looked like jeans and then added tiny silver brads for the fasteners on the overalls. The saw, hammer and screwdriver were all cut files from My Scrap Chick. The pencil and ruler were cut from Locker Talk. Thanks was cut from Don Juan and mounted on a black rectangle.
Thanks for checking it out and enjoy this sunshine!!!
Have a great week!

Baby boy!

Hi there,
An old friend from high school just had her first baby boy last week. She moved all the way to Arizona so we have kind of lost touch except for the wonderful world of Facebook. Anyway, I wanted to let her know how happy I was for her. Mom and baby are doing great.
Here is a card I made....

I used the New Arrival Cartridge for the baby buggy. I cut it numerous times to give it a little depth. I embossed the bottom half of the buggy with the Swiss Dots folder and added a few adhesive gems. It's mounted on some circles cut from Nesties and added some adhesive pearls around the outside. Welcome to the World is stamped and then it's cut out using Nesties. Button and Ribbon from the good ole' stash!

Dad's Birthday!

Hi there,
Yesterday was my dad's birthday so I wanted to share the card I made for him.

The patterned paper is from the DCWV guys stack. I cut the tee and golf bar from Sports Mania. The golf ball is pop dotted and embossed with the bubbled folder. The other green block is embossed with the Happy Birthday folder.

Thanks for checking it out!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Princess Crown Card

Happy Monday!
I just wanted to share the card I made to go along with the Princess Wagon.
Again, the little one was turning one and her birthday party was princess themed.

I welded the crown from the Sweet Treats cartridge to form a shaped card. Instead of the heart that is cut on the crown I cut the number one from Hello Kitty Font and mounted it on circles cut with Nesties. I added some ribbon and tons of adhesive gems to give it that "royal" look. I cut stars from George to put on the top circles.

It was a big hit!
