Thank You Card

Today's card is one that I made about a month ago thinking I would use it for my card class, but decided not to. I really love the color combo of the Pirouette Pink and Riding Hood Red with white and the Heartfelt Thanks flower is one of my favorites.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a nice relaxing Sunday!

Another card from a class I did 2 weeks ago, similar to the one I posted yesterday. I used the Baja Breeze paper and ink along with Very Vanilla paper and then added Riding Hood Red, So Saffron and Regal Rose for the flowers. I was so very sad to see that the sentiment set was retiring as I love it so much, so of course I had to use it for my last few card classes. I got the idea for this card from Splitcoast Stampers, not sure who it was, but Thank You for sharing!!

Today we are hanging out and getting caught up on laundry since my wonderful Dad came and fixed our washer the other night....crazy how much laundry can pile up when you can't do some every day! I do hope to get a chance to work on my scrapbooks soon, I hate seeing that stuff pile up on the computer and my craft area. Oh, we also have to go and find a frame for DD's first place ribbon and certificate from the spelling bee! Here is the picture of her holding them both (her friend was giving her a thumbs up in the picture) Sorry for the white erasing on the picture, I could not get the blur to work the way I wanted it to.

Misc. card

I really love the colors on this card, all but the chocolate chip ribbon were from Kristina's color challenge last week...hard to see the pink flowers though. We made these last week as well and the ladies loved how they turned out since they were able to put a sentiment on them for what they wanted. I left mine blank for now, just not sure what I will end up using it for....

Sorry for the delay on this post, we have had a busy week around here. On Wednesday my oldest daughter won her school spelling bee and I got to be there to watch!!! She is supposed to go onto the district round now, but that is the day we will be flying home from Mexico so her alternate is going instead. I am just so very proud of her and happy that my plans changed so that I could be there! Pictures coming soon....

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello again

Yikes!!! Not such a good start to the year, but no point beating myself up over it now! I have a few days worth of cards coming, so make sure you keep coming back!

Today's card is one that we made last week at my card class. I LOVE the way it turned out, just like I thought it would! I finally got my hands on a swiss dots folder for my cuttlebug so of course I had to put it to use right away! We used the You & Moi stamp set with chocolate chip ink. Such a cute and simple card...oh yeah! I did get the idea from FTL (Clean and Simple on my blogroll) that is the best place for ideas when you get stuck!

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with some more....till then!

Welcome 2009!!!  Let's hope this year turns out to be a little better than last year!  I know one thing for sure, I am going to enjoy some nice weather in Mexico in February, so this year can't be all bad!!!  Let's hope this is a good start to my blogging habits for the year also, I kind of like doing my posts in advance, might keep me on target for a few things during the year!
