My Hubby's Birthday!

My wonderful hubby had his birthday this past week.  He turned 30 something almost 40!  I won't tell...not yet!  He is such a great man, and God knew what He was doing when He put us together.  But I can't believe that we both are nearing that 40 mark...and that we have teenage children and they will all be in the double digit numbers next year...where does time go???  Well, as the saying goes, "Time flies, when your having fun!"  I guess that is what is happening.  Any who, here is his card.  This one had lots of little tiny details to it, but it was very simple. 

I used:
Stand and Salute Cartridge for the banner
Plantin SchoolBook for the letters
Then I just cut a bunch of squares and rectangles and put ribbon from my stash around them to make them look like presents

Well, thanks for looking and have a great day! 

Birthday Cupcake!

My wonderful neighbor had a birthday last week...and so naturally I made her a birthday card.  She is a fun loving lady and so I decided to make her a fun card!  I used lots of sparkly paper and lots of brads as sprinkles to make it look yummy! 

I used:
Sweet Treats and my gypsy to make all the layers and the shaped card
DCWV The Glitter Card Stock Stack

Brads and ribbon from my stash
The sentiment was computer generated

Thanks for taking a peek and have a terrific day!

Time Ticks By So Fast

On October 23rd was my 18th wedding Anniversary!  Whoohoo!  I wanted to make my wonderful hubby a simple card that didn't have a whole lot of fancy stuff on it...that was really hard for me not to go overboard!  So I came up with the clock idea and designed it on my gypsy.  Then came up with a little quote that went along with it for the front and then completed it on the inside.  He liked the clock and its "movable" hands.  I just did a simple gate fold card and used the clock on the front and then two hearts on the inside.  My wonderfully talented daughter made the beaded center for the heart.  I really struggled not putting some kind of fancy ribbon or lace on this but I just had to be happy with the glittery paper.  He liked it and that is what matters!

I used:
Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge for the making of the clock and the hearts
Fiskars Border Punch
DCWV The Glitter Card stock Stack

Another Autumn Tree Card/Shaker

Sorry my dear friends, that it has been a while since I have posted anything.  I have been very busy lately but I still had time to make some cards but just not the time to post them all.  So look out, here come a bunch of posts!  LOL 
Any who, this card is alot like the last one but, it is a shaker!  I was digging through my scrap drawer and found a baggie with a bunch of these leaves that I had cut out about a year ago.  Then I got this idea to use them for a shaker card.  So this is what I did.  I made this for my BIL's Birthday!  I hope he liked it!  I know I really enjoyed looking at it and shaking it to make the leaves move around! 

I Used:
Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge for the Tree and Leaves
DCWV The Glitter Card stock Stack for the leaves and background and frame
Brown Card Stock
Ribbon from my stash

Stamp is from my stash from Dollar stores
Well, thanks for checking out what I have been up to lately!  I hope you have a blessed day, today!
