Golfin' Birthday

I'm back! Boy it's been a busy couple months.
Hope everyone is doing well out in the blogging world!
I wanted to share a card I made for my good friend and neighbor's birthday!

The stamp is Stampendous and features one of my favorite guys...Changito!!!
I mounted him on circles cut from Nesties and colored him with my Bic Markers. The sentiment is also a Stampendous stamp and goes with my little golfer guy. The little orange block I Cuttlebugged with the Argyle folder. A little ribbon, a few brads and a button later, I was done.

Thanks for checking it out.

I know I've said it before but I'm really going to try to be better at this blogging thing. :)

Happy Spring!

Hi there,
Just wanted to share a happy, springy card I made.
It's actually for my sister-in-law who celebrates both Easter and Passover.

The cat is from Stampendous. I believe the Happy Spring is also from Stampendous' line. I stamped them together to come up with one big image. I colored them with my Bic markers and added a few adhesive gems as flower centers. The ribbon is from my stash. I pink flower on the bow is from a foam pack and I added an adhesive gem for a flower center. The little butterfly I found at Hobby Lobby!

Have a great holiday!

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.

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!
