Baby Tag

While I was sitting at my desk making cards today, my sister Nikki called. Nikki was on a shopping trip for a baby gift for her friends new baby boy, Tag. After she had found a gift she asked me if I would make her a card to go along with the gift. Of course I would! I love making cards that are actually for a purpose. Most of my cards sit in a box and wait to be mailed out to someone. Her gift she bought is orange, so I made an orange card to go along with it. I love the way it turned out. This layout is a really good layout. Easy and appealing- in my opinon. Anyway, I thought it turned out super cute.

Weekend Sketch Challenge

I made this card for Beates weekend sketch challenge. I decided to make a cute flower that I saw on Dawn McVey's blog a while back. To see how they are made click here. Those big flowers are so cute and really look nice. The only problem is that they stick out so much from the card that is would be hard to send in the mail. I'm sure the reciever would get a squished flower. I thought it would be a perfect card to put with a gift - that way if you have to mail it, the card would just go in with the pacakge.

Sketch Challenge

I made this card for Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge for the week. They provide the layout and you come up with the rest. I really liked how it turned out. I am just loving the Damask Designs stamp set. I think it would be so pretty on some type of formal announcement.

Happy Birthday To You

So, I was going through all of my scrapbooking stuff and reorganizing everything when I came across some leftover paper I had stamped once upon a time. This paper didn't have a place in my newly organized stash, so I needed to use it up. I am trying to keep all of my scraps a little more organized these days, so I came to the conclusion that I need to use up all of my stamped scrap that I have, before it gets put away never to be found again. I am just really loving the new Stampin' Up In Colors this year. So girly :)

My First Post

I have been making so many cards and papercraft projects lately that I decided to join the papercrafting blog world. My poor hubby has to hear about my latest color combo, my newest cool find, and I'm sure he could care less (although he does a good job at pretending). My two little girls are always in awe of my latest card. Now I get to show them to the world! I hope you enjoy! Sorry about the photos. I am not good at getting good pictures, but I am working on it.

I made this card with a special friend in mind. :) I did a little distressing on this one. I'm headed to the post office today to send this baby off. Hope she likes it.
