Button Buddies Birthday Card

Welcome to a week of Button Buddies Cards on my blog!  I received this set at Stampin’ Up! convention, and I finally found a few hours this weekend to stamp with it!  I love buttons (guess that goes without saying) and I sometimes think that I am a button hoarder — along with being a fabric hoarder and ribbon hoarder!  Now before you call the producers of the show, let me assure you that I actually…

A little bouquet of flowers…

I love flowers!  Especially pink ones…….and I really don’t mind having them around the house, but the cat always tries to eat them, and that creates quite a set of problems, and we rarely spend the money on “real” flowers.  So, how ’bout sticking to some flowers on cards?  I think that works for me (most of the time) — and this pretty “bouquet” came from my friend Dee.  She mixed Pink Pirouette with Chocolate Chip…

Coffee anyone?

For all of the Starbucks lovers out there…..here is a card you will want to see.  My dear friend, Maria, made this card for me and included a Starbucks gift card inside.  It was such a nice little Convention surprise……..and the little brown box had a Simply Adorned Pearl Charm inside of it.  Thanks again, Maria.  I miss you! Sarah’s Birthday Pictures Sarah chose to have dinner at Olive Garden and then we went home…

Happy Wedding Day!

I’m so excited about the wedding we are attending today!   Jeremy and Lauren are getting married (young friends from church) and we couldn’t be happier!  I was searching for a card to create for them, and found this on another blog.  I wish I had the details for you, but I can’t remember where I found it.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  Simple, elegant, and lovely!  I’m enclosing it with their gift today, and I know they…

July Club Class Project #1

Today is the day for July club, and we are making 3 fantastic projects!  This is a fun birthday card using several new Stampin’ Up! products.  I tested out the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Pennant Parade Stamps and 3 of our new colors on this festive card.  I am so thankful that Stampin’ Up! sent me the punch AND the stamp set for FREE — it was a great reward for me!  I’m not sure…

Baby Card for Cassidy

Good morning friends!  I’m headed to Abilene today with Allyson.  I think my car is starting to find its way there on its own……  We are going so she can take the tests required for “testing out” of Spanish.  This will determine how many semesters she can get credit for, based on her 4 years of HS Spanish.  We are hoping for at least 2 semesters, and anything more will be a “bonus”.  It will…
