Gift Card Party

We were recently invited to a “Gift Card Party” for friends of ours who are about to get married.  This was a neat twist on the traditional shower and guests didn’t have to wrap or lug any heavy gifts into the event.   As soon as we received the invitation I knew the exact stamp set…

Hoppy Monday

Hello Crafters! Hope your weekend was spent doing something you love. The sun is shining brighter and the days are getting longer and this all points to one thing…I’m getting less sleep.  Ha, just kidding, (although that is a true statement) the sunshine and longer days point to the fact that summer is coming! While…

52 Happy Days

Digital photo Wednesday is here! This photo comes from the back yard of Ruth Mountain B&B in Arab. This also happened to be the view from my bedroom for the weekend!  We were blessed with beautiful weather. On Saturday afternoon a few of us had fun taking a walk.  These guys were not so happy…

Baby Season

There are several pending arrivals in my life right now!  I had time on Sunday afternoon to create a few baby cards and wanted to show you one.  This was made with the Friends and Flowers stamp set and the Festive Flower Punch.  I love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates their stamps with punches…it saves so…

Bumble Bee Card – Part 2

Welcome to the weekend!! My husband and I always joke that we have reached the age where time is truly flying by…we must be having fun! A cold snap came through our area earlier this week and about twenty-four hours later I had a sore throat and the start of the “crud”.  Needless to say, this…

52 Happy Days

One day each week, instead of talking about a craft or card, I want to share a photo that made me happy that week.  I’ve been inspired reading other bloggers who have gone through the “100 Happy Days” challenge.  While I am not going to tackle the daily challenge, I do want to incorporate the…

My Scrap-Booking Journey – Part 2

I left off yesterday talking about my switch to full size scrapbooks. The reason for this change?  My first horse, Cherokee Perfection (nicknamed Jughead)! I filled the pages with every show, trail ride and move we made. He now has a “Volume 2” scrapbook as well because the first one filled up! From 2004-2007 I also…

My Scrap-Booking Journey

Stylish 90’s fashion, braided perms and braces anyone?  I wanted to share a little of my journey with scrapbooking! As tends to happen when I pull out my scrapbooks, I get sidetracked looking through every page, laughing at the memories (and fashion!) and sometimes crying over the animals who are no longer with me (Sully…

Easter Treat Bags

Welcome to the weekend!! I hope everyone has lots of fun plans or relaxation time scheduled. We are going to a crawfish boil for a good friend’s birthday (yum!), a party with my co-workers to celebrate the end of busy season (accounting), followed by dinner with two fun couples (more food)! I might need a nap by mid-morning because I received a Stampin’…

How To: Bumble Bee Tri-fold Card

This was a fun card to make! A traditional half fold card might be easier to decorate but changing up the fold can add a little something extra.  I am not finished with this card thanks to my car breaking down again tonight. Back to the shop for the third time this week!  However, I wanted to…

Sunsets and Swimming

Tonight I was not very creative or crafty but instead had a wonderful evening at the farm. Although, I did look through the Stampin’ Up! catalog while my husband chauffeured me out to the barn. I will be placing an order soon to take advantage of the free Sale-A-Bration gifts being offered right now.  This will definitely be on the order! While…
