Wedding Card

This card was made for Amy. I have watched her grow up and she was a beautiful bride. Her colors were orange and white and I thought this would be perfect.
I love how this card turned out. I won the stamp Cake Topper at The Greeting Farm blog.
They give away somehting almost every week and they have such cute rubber stamps and digitial images. The base card is from Michaels and I used my Copic to color it .
Hope you are staying dry. It is a very wet week here in Missouri!!!
Always find your happy place

Merry Monsters

Had computer problems last week. My Foreign Exchange daughter downloaded a few viruses. They got caught,but I think there is still something floating around in the computer. If it gets any slower it will not be working at all. Need to get it to the computer guy. Anyway here are my halloween cards, if I get them finished.

My Halloween card this year uses Merry Monsters

This is such a cute stamp set from CTMH. The printed paper is from Michaels and I used Copics to color in the Orange Monster. The card layout is from last weeks CPS sketch 138 . I got it made, but with everything that was going on I didn't get anything posted.

Hope you like it. Now I need to get more finished and in the mail as soon as possible.
Have a great week

Envelope Treat bag

Saw this cute idea on my Upline Tina's blog. I used Holiday Hoopla stamp set again. I love this set. It is good for any holiday. The paper is from Twitterpated.

I used decorative scissors to cut the top.

It is a mini treat bag made from an envelope. So cool, easy, and cheap.

Click here to see directions.

This cute little bag uses Merry Monsters stamp set and Twitterpated paper. On this one I used decorative scissors for the top of the envelope as well as the handle. I took the scraps from the handle and glued them to the bottom of the bag. Isn't it just sooo cute. A great way to make lots of goody bags.
Thanks Tina for putting this on your blog. I have heard of it, but havn't tried it before.

Halloween goodie

Wow! I don't know where the time has flown. Been busy avoiding the rain here in Missouri. Time to switch from Christmas to Halloween. It will be here before we know it!!!

Been working on a way to give treats to co-workers. This is a cute little treat and it is easy to make. My friend Dawnette made one last year for Valentines Day.

Supplies used

3X12 orange Cardstock

Holiday Hoopla Stamp Set

Black Ink & Autumn Terra Cotta Ink


Clear Button


Start with a 3 X 12 piece of paper

Score at 5", 6", and 7"

Decorate how ever you like

I punched a hole in the top and used a 4 " piece of ribbon.

When adding candy you can either use tape, removable glue dot, or staple.

The treat hangs in the middle. I don't have any candy right now to put in it.

Christmas Cards with Alphabet stickers

These cards are still from the Level 1 Jingle Scrapbook kit. All of our kits come with Alphabet stickers. I had to find a way to use them. I have one other card, but I haven't figures out how to finish it.

The card above actually says Winter wishes ( the winter is tiny). I tried to get a picture, but it kept coming out blurry. The tree has licquid glass, but it doesn't show up well on the picture.

So what do you think about the way I used some of the alphabet letters? I thought they turned out pretty good.
Thanks for stopping by
