Cute Note Box

Here is a box that I made for a swap at convention. I made necklace to go in it but forgot to take a picture. These are simple little boxes with a pocket on the top with a note card that slips in the top. I used More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron with the Circle Circus stamp set. I will be sharing more of my convention swaps over the next few days. Thanks for stoping by today.

Ella"s Birth Announcement

I know I said ages ago that I would post Ella's birth announcement. Sorry it took me so long but here it is. I am very happy about how it turned out. They were time consuming but it kept my mind off being overdue. I love, love, love the cottage wall DSP and Rich Razzleberry card stock. I will be sad to see it retire. When folded up it measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. It looks quite impressive opened up if I have to say so myself. I have a wonderful photographer husband to thank for the great pictures.

Mojo Monday 122

Here is my take on the Mojo Monday card. I know it is Wednesday! However with a 21 month old and a 12 week old it is hard to find time to stamp these days. I made a 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 card. The main part of the card is Pretty in Pink with So Saffron and Old Olive card stock. I used the Sweet Pea DSP from the Occasions Mini. I have to say I absolutely love this paper! I used the stamp set Oval All, So Saffron ribbon from last years sale-a-bration, Large Oval, Scallop Oval and Wide Oval punches. I also added several layers to the inside of the card. I like the look and weight this adds.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!

Love you much- Mojo Monday

Here is my first attempt at a Mojo Monday sketch. I am pleased with how it turned out. I kept it very simple with Old Olive and Very Vanilla card stock and Old Olive DSP, with Very Vanilla 5/16" brads. I used the new scallop trim boarder (in the sale-a-bration catalog) and scallop trim corner punches and well scripted stamp set (both in the occasions mini)

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who create these sketches. I hope to do more of these in the weeks to come. It was fun!

On another note. I was over to Shelli's blog to check out her creative challenge. Another challenge I have never taken part in. Can you believe it! and as I am reading it I think Oh my goodness! This it exactly what I was thinking when I was making my Mojo sketch. I wanted to make a non traditional Valentines card. So this ones for you Shelli.

Be Merry

OK! I know Christmas is over but I wanted to share this card I made for a swap. I like to see non traditional holiday cards. I also like the softness of the pretty in pink with whisper white and a little dazzling diamonds to give it that sparkle. Hope you like it.
