Anchors Away

 This is a large card, it measures something over 6x6...I don't think I even have an envelope that big. Maybe I'll just add it to a gift package I mail out!

I love cutting project life type cards out bigger to make a greeting card. They always look so cute.

The kids have been out a week now. We have been readjusting our schedule to be a bit more relaxed. The pool has been put out in the backyard. The water is still too chilly for me, but give another 100 degree week, and I'll be in there soon!

Boat Card

I am loving the nautical trend right now. It makes me want to live closer to the ocean!
Warning: more summer nautical cards to come...

Sew Great

The spool card was a Mother's Day card, I really tried to personalize each card that I made for the moms in our life. I love the sentiment on the second card, everything will be o.k. That is a good one for just about anytime in my book. Summer is quickly approaching, and I have the next couple of months plotted out. I just want to make sure we have a few snow cone dates!

Pastel Cards and the Latest

We went out for Mother's Day this afternoon, trying to beat the restaurant crowds of tomorrow. It sorta worked, the place was pretty full! I have been focusing so much on restoring my health, cards and crafts have been taking a backseat. I did run a 10K this morning, and then made it to yoga this morning. Out church has just started doing Holy Yoga. I have been enjoying it immensely.

Here is a pic of me after the run...The family suprised my and showed up at the end. I really felt like walking at the end, it was so hot. But, little Audrey was cheering me on, it gave me motivation:)

May Day

Aah May, so happy you're here! I have been straightening out health issues...things are getting better! I have been going to acupuncture for about a month now, it has made a huge difference. And trust me, it would really have to work well for me to continue to do it. I have slowly learned to relax while having it done:)

I have two cards for you today. The feather card is probably the first card in a year that hasn't usded patterned that triangle washi tape. Oh, and I have a card published in the current Cricut Cards magazine, can't wait to share it!

Mini Book for Nov. 2011

We did a lot of things in November of 2011, so all those pictures got printed out. Then sat there...for a year! It is finally complete, and is in a basket with all my other minis.

Bunny Cards

Easter has crept up on me! I loved the look of the peeps type bunnies. We have already got our packages of peeps, but the Easter bunny has to pick up some chocolate bunnies before Sunday.

I have a mini in the current Cricut Mini Albums magazine! It was one of my favorite minis, about a camping trip to Flagstaff a couple years ago.

A day late, but here are a couple more St. Patrick's Day cards that I mailed out last week.

I just saw that google reader is going away. What are some good blog readers? I guess I'm going to have to get that switched over before July!

Chemistry Card

I was trying to find something chemistry related for my dad's birthday. I cut the beaker shapes from the Silhouette, and then printed the cat image for the inside of the card. I think he will like it!

Some more clover cards for a Monday. The boy has strep throat, so he is hanging with me today. I cannot wait to show you a card that I made for my dad's birthday. Let's just say I had to get creative for a chemistry themed one ;)

St. Patrick's Day Cards

The time is coming soon to get the green out! I found a green wig in my baking closet (no clue why it's there!) Guess I'll have my personal party with it ;) I love to cut out the tri fold cards they are my favorite type of card. For this week at least...

More Than Bacon

This the the card I made for my hubby. I saw the idea at Paper Source and got going on it! I used the Silhouette to cut out the lettering and bacon. Happy Valentine's Day!

Love Bug

Two more love cards. I actually ran out of pink cardstock, think that is a first! A little over a week until Valentine's Day:)

Tri Fold Card

Usually there isn't allot to the inside of cards...But this one got fancy! This is a time where double sided paper comes in handy.

Saturday, February 2, 2013


Yeah for February! It feels a little more acceptable to be posting all these Valentine cards:) I am going to prep some Valentine boxes to mail out to my sister and mom. I found some really cute inexpensive goodies to put in them. Now I just have to decide which cards to give up.

Mustache Time

 I don't know if you can tell in the photo, but the pink cardstock has mustaches all over it! I found this embossing folder at Joann's, and had to give it a whirl.

I have had this heart paper for years, and couldn't figure out what to do, inspiration finally struck!

I got smart this weekend, and lived in my rain-boots! Some more love cards... The bingo card I had been saving for quite some time to use. Have a wonderful Monday!
