Birthday Cards

A very special young lady has a birthday this week, so I had to make a couple of cards for her. It is so hard to believe my little girl will be 24 on Thursday. It makes my heart sad but at the same time it makes my heart swell. I could not ask for a better daughter. She is such a sweet caring, loving, wonderful young woman. She goes to school full time, works full time, keeps a lovely home and takes such great care of her husband who is a full time student and her ever so precious puppy dog. I feel so blessed to have her as my daughter I typically use pink when making a girlie b/d card and especially for Brittany but this time I stepped outside the box and used colors I normally don't use. I am sure glad I did too, these pictures do not do the cards justice. The colors are so much prettier in real life.
Happy 24th Birthday Brittany and here is to 100 more! Love you Mom

I finally got around to making something and actually taking pictures and now I'm posting. One of Brittany's dear friends has a little boy and they love going to the zoo. I thought this would be a cute to add some adorable pictures of him in it.

Already November

How could that be possible? It seems like we were just putting away Christmas from last year and here it is time to start thinking about the holidays. Love the holidays but they really don't need to come so quickly each year. Do they?

I am so far behind, I have been working on several things and have finished nothing. So please come back and stay tuned I have some fun projects in the works. I am making a princess castle for the precious granddaughter. Her 5th birthday is coming up and Nana gets to make the princess cake and centerpiece. I can't wait.

Thank You Brittany for the kind words and bragging about my blog, I am so blessed to have you as my sweet daughter ~ Love you

Birthday Book

Here is a chipboard OWL book I made for a dear friend for her birthday next week. I think she will be very surprised. She and I have known each other since we were approx. 8 years old, so anyone who knows us knows that is a lot of years!!! For the past 20 or so years we have made each others birthday cards. I think this year I might have over done it. I added bling to their eyes, and in all that ribbon there are several charms. Years and years ago she and I got necklace charms that had a broken heart and 1/2 said Be Fri and the other half said St End, I had the Be fri and she had the st end, well i found a charm exactly like the ones we had except smaller, so I put that in there. A lot of fond memories.
It looks like I forgot to add a picture of the second pages....oh well

And the last owl page.
The end

Sheerin if you by chance happen to take a peek at my blog before Aug. 25th don't look at this section of the blog........




Baby Shower Invitations

Brittany and her friends are hosting a baby shower for a friend of theirs, I was honored to make the invitations. I had fun making them and I really like the way they turned out. I used my gypsy and cricut and here is what I came up with. Her colors are light pink and purple flowers and butterflies so we wanted to tie it all in.

The butterflies are not adhered yet, Brittany will fill out the correct info and add to the center of the invite (the one on there is just a sample) and then she will add the butterflies.

Another Challenge

Cricut Cardz Challenge.....I really liked this challenge make a teen birthday card using any cartridge or color. As many who know me Pink is my favorite color and my go to color. I used the Forever Young Cart as well. Probably my all time fav cart as well. I decided to use stickles for the sweet sixteen and then added some diamond dust (Stampin UP). I used pop dots to add dimension to the girl, I also used Martha Stewart punch to punch around the pattern paper
