Celebrate that I am actually posting-ha!  We just got back from a wonderful vacation in Seattle.  I sure miss it there.  Beyond that, no excuses for not posting/creating lately...  Well, I have been terribly busy with my day job and Preschool is  starting next week for my daughter.  Good news though, I got completely inspired last night and began the task of re-organizing my studio/office.  Time to sort through all of my junk and organize for a more productive and inviting work space!  

This is a card that I made in July (!) for a 3-year old boy's Birthday.  

Thanks for stopping by!

A Birthday card, finally!

I have been struggling to get my craft room all settled (I know, it has been months)!  I went to my LSS yesterday to grab a present for a friend and was loving all of the YUMMY paper in the store.  I had to hold back, knowing how much I had at home.  However, I managed to spend a small fortune anyways.  I have weak will power when DP is involved!

I had to sit down last night and make some cards.  I had forgotten how much I loved making cards!

Thank You

Thanks to some pushing from Allison, I am attempting to get back into the swing of things. And, I did some blurfing around yesterday and found so many gorgeous creations (and new products) made me want to create right away!

This card is from a set that I made for a friend that is a new mama to a bouncing baby boy. I figured that I should stock her up with a set of Thank You cards for all of the awesome gifts that have been coming her way. I have to admit that I used a similar design for my own Thank You cards for my son- gimme a break though, I am still trying to get organized *wink* Thanks for stopping by!

Hello! It has been far too long! We moved at the very end of March and it has been a slow process of unpacking, organizing and just overall getting back into the swing of things around here. Ironically, we only moved to our backyard (really) and it has been the hardest move by far! I hope to get the last of my craft room unpacked in the coming weeks so I can resume craftiness. My new hobby has been photography and learning CS3 in my night classes- fun stuff.

Back to the card! I made this a few months back for a bridal shower. Unfortunately, due to my usual procrastinating-self, I made this in the wee hours of the night and took a pic that had bad light...

Take it Easy

We are moving at the end of next month, so the majority of my supplies are in boxes (boo)! Hey, I had to make my craft room somewhat presentable to sell the house, right? I am anxious to get moved and settled into my new craft space! In the meantime, here is a card I made for a friend that just had surgery.

Bennett's Birthday party & Thank you cards

Admittedly, I am a total slacker these days in the blogging and card making department. I finally completed the Thank You cards for Bennett's Birthday party (end of January!), so I can share those with you and a few pics of the party too!

Lisa @ Sugar Shack Cakes did an amazing job on the cakes, as usual!

Happy LOVE Day & It's been awhile!

Hi everyone! I cannot believe how long it has been (November) since I last posted a card. Life got very busy with the holidays, traveling to California for Christmas, gearing-up for the move to our new home (which is nearly complete), and going back to work after my year-long maternity leave. Anyways, I hope everyone is doing great in blog land. And, I hope to be able to get back to post some cards on a somewhat regular basis and see all of your wonderful creations as well.
Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Boy

Our friends just welcomed their first child, a BOY into the world. We are going over there tonight to meet him- can't wait. Anyways, this is the card I made for them. I decided against stamping a sentiment- the DP kinda speaks for itself- don't you think?

Party Invites

My daughter is turning 3 next week. She decided on a Construction-themed Birthday party. Here is the design I came up with for her party. I have had a great time working on the invites, loot bags and cake design. This is such a fun theme. I am sure I will have years of very girly-themed parties, so this was a blast!

Die cut- Cuttlebug
Misc- SU Punch and MM silver eyelets (I haven't used eyelets in FOREVER)
and I put pop dots underneath the trucks
