This is my husbands mema who just celebrated her 82nd birthday. We had a big party for her and I manged to get some really good pictures of the whole family so I decided to work on an album for her. This is the 1st page of the book since it's her children. I hope to work on it more this weekend and have something else to post.
I think it is so elegant!

This is a look at all of the wonderful "Homemade" cards I recieved at my party! I do feel like this was my favorite part of the night, there is something about knowing that someone took the time to make an original card just for me. Thanks to everyone these wonderful creations will be cherished forever.
I must tell you who these came from...the top left (orange & Blue) is from Chrissy, Middle (bright pink) is from Lorena (she isn't even a scrapper, how sweet), top right (stripes) Is from Lori, bottom left (pink and green) is from Bekki, bottom middle (pink and white) is from Jamie (she just started in cards, she will be hooked soon) and bottom right (yellow) is from my wonderful hubby (with a little help from Lori, hehe)
I have the MOST AMAZING friends! My birthday is tomorrow the 22nd and they threw me a Suprise party last night, and Yes I was suprised. It was definitely one of my most favorite days. I felt so special and so loved. Thank you my dear friends Bekki (on the left) and Lori (in the middle). I adore you guys!!!!!

Bekki, Lori, and I went shopping yesterday and I bought my first set of clear stamps at Michaels. Here is a card I made with one of them and it is heat embossed with a glittery powder, I can get the more technical name if anyone cares. This is ribbon I bought from Big Lots for $1 for 15 YARDS! What a bargain!!!!

I used Snow Swirled for this one. I actually saw this card on a favorite blog of mine called "Design With Ink" She of course used different colors but the concept is the same. This is my version and I like it. I will try it with other color combos later. The ornaments are heat embossed with silver and I just inked around the edges in Navy.

Well, I got the "Snow Swirled" Stamp Set yesterday and it is Beautiful! Here is my first attempt at using this set and I can't wait to make more! I was looking on SCS and those ladies have made this stamp look really good, I'm casing a couple of those and just need some time.

Here is a card I made for my husbands mema. She is turning 83 this weekend and she is so precious to my family. I hope she likes it! Another design I saw on Split Coast Stamper Gallery. Of course I changed it up a bit to make it my own but I loved the idea.
Here is my version of Lori's Color Challenge! I used Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Chocolate Chip but it's as close as I could get to her challenge. I heat embossed the White to make it stand out from the "Taken With Teal" ink. It's simple but I like it. I saw something similar on A gallery in Split Coast Stampers.

Today is My 7th Annivaersary to my Husband Russ! We agreed to not buy a gift for one another and spend some quality time together instead. We also agreed to write a meaningful letter to each other. Here is my letter to Russ and of course I had to make a "List" of some of the things I Love about him.
