Congrats Card

 It's Friday morning and It looks like It's going to be a beautiful day. The Grandkids are here. They are on summer break. The school year just seemed to fly by. They seem to get shorter every year.  

My nephew Quentin Graduated from High School this year and I wanted to share the Graduation Card that I made for him.

I know most guys don't really like sparkly things. But I added just a little sparkle on the star. I just couldn't help my self.

Congrats Is from the Gypsy Wanderings Cricut Cartridge and the hat came from A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge.

Added embroidery thread to the hat with a yellow brad.
You did It Is from the Stampin Up Set called Perfect Pairing
Little Stars from small punch.

Also used my Martha Stewart Score Board to add some score lines to the card. 

That's It for me today. Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a good weekend.

You mean so much to me Cards

 Today Is Tuesday and I have been at the hospital all morning. My Mom had to have surgery today. Everything went well and she Is doing good. ( Praise God). Hopefully she can come home tomorrow. 

Wanted to share the Mother's Day cards that I made for my Mom and Daughter. Have had so much going on that I'm just now getting them posted. 

The first one was for my Daughter and the next one was for my Mom. The only difference Is the colors of the pearls.

The base of the card is Kraft
Papers by American Crafts
Sentiment from Close to my Heart (Beloved Bouquet)
Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge- Green Scallop
White Doily from Stampin Up
Added Stickles to the centers of the flowers

Really liked the quick and easy design of these cards. Would be very easy to change up the papers and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Day to you and God Bless!

Card for the Hoppy Couple

  The sun Is shining this morning, Suppose to be Sunny and warm here today. We have had so much rain and flooding. That seeing a day full of sunshine and no rain Is so nice to see.
If you seen my last post, You have seen the Wedding Card that I made for my niece McKinley and her new husband Michael.

Today I want to share with you a Card that I helped my Grand Daughter make to give to my niece and her new husband. 

We thought a frog Card would be cute because while they were dating they would catch frogs. They even had two frogs on top of their wedding cake.  ( I would also like to add that I think catching frogs Is totally gross). Blah! 

So here Is the card we made for them.

This Card was pretty fun to make. Besides cutting out those frogs. That was a little tricky. I don't like cutting things out. 

Used the stamp set Unfrogettable  from Stampin Up.

Here is a list of the other things I used.
Spellbinders Die Beaded Circles- For the Card Base
Circle and wavy Stitched Dies
Cardstock- Soft Sky, Crumb Cake (Kraft), Whisper White, Old Olive and Real Red
Green and White polka dot paper from my stash and a white Signo Pen for eyes.

Thought I would go ahead and share a picture of their wedding cake to show you the two little frogs on top of the cake.  

         Click on the picture to enlarge, If you can't see the frogs

  When we made the card, we had no Idea they were going to have frogs on their cake. Thought it was so cute and Michaels Grandfather cut the tree for the base of the cake. Thought that was sweet.

So that Is all I have to share with you today. Thanks to all who stop by. Would love for you to leave a comment. If you do, please leave your Blog name so I can visit you. 

Hope you all enjoy your day! God Bless

Cactus Card for the Happy Couple!

  Hi All, Hope your having a good day. I have had better days. A'lot of things going on In my life right now. But I'm getting through It. God will see me through these tough times.

I did want to share with you a card that I made for my Niece McKinley.
She was married this past Saturday and her and her husband are moving to New Mexico.

I thought it would be fun to make her a Cactus Wedding Card. Unfortunately I didn't have any Cactus Stamps or anything so I just decided to draw some. They were very simple to draw. 

So here Is here Card...

 I know that this Isn't a very good picture of It. But It's the only one I got before heading off to the wedding.

I have to say this Card was so fun to make. The Card Is really good sized. I think it was 5 1/2 x 6 1/2. 

Not sure If you can tell but I added a veil from Tulle and for the part around her head, I just used a thin white ribbon and tied three knots in In. I can't remember what Cricut Cartridge I used for the Mr and Mrs.

Thanks to all of you that take the time to visit my blog.

Thought I would share a picture of the Happy Couple.

 Congratulations McKinley and Michael !!!

Tiny Milk Carton Box

 Hello, Glad you could stop by. On my last post I had made a Card for my Niece's Bridal Shower. So today I thought I would share a little gift box that I had made to put one of her gifts In.

This tiny box Is so easy to make. It only takes a 4 1/8 x 6" piece of Cardstock. 

You can find this box on youtube called Tiny Milk Carton Chocolate Egg Boxes.made by PootlesPapercraft.  Love to watch her video's.

Elements Of Style from Stampin Up Is the Stamp Set I used  and I used my new Stamp Perfect Stamp positioner from Hampton Art. 

I am Loving this thing. I used a gift card and coupon and only paid a little over $6.00. Great deal! 

My Niece McKinley will be getting married in about a month. Her future husband Is In the Air Force and will be moving to New Mexico. That's pretty far from Indiana. 

Since I'm her (crazy) Aunt and have played several pranks on her. I made her a magnet with a picture of me to take with her. So when she see's It, It will be bring a smile.

That Is what I put In the tiny Box.  I also added a little tag on the outside that said (For when your missing me). She laughed so hard. 

At least It wasn't a extra dirty sock. I have gave her a few of those as gifts before. I would even add sticky burs to them. I can still see her expression when she opened them. Oh how funny, I Love to laugh.

Well that's It for me today. Time for me to get some house work done. Blah!
Happy Day to you, hope you stop by again.
