Driving into Summer

Hello Everybody!

My friend needed a card for her kids' bus driver.  She asked me to make a card for him.  She says something like "driving into summer."  Initially, all I could think of was pineapples and hibiscus flowers...thankfully it turned into this:

I love her sentiment.  All of the die cuts (building, bus, and palm trees, island) are from my Silhouette machine.  I actually cut out the hammock myself.  :)  The sky is embossed with a clouds folder from Darice.  The sentiment is from small Tim Holtz letters.

My friend loved the card (Yay!).

I am submitting this into the following challenges:

Mother's Day Shaker Card


I have been busy over the last few days.  I went to the Scrapbook Expo yesterday-and was totally inspired by the examples and products.  There was so much to see!  It's nice to see the Expo getting bigger.  In years past it has been smaller, but it's definitely growing now. :)

One of my favorite booths is Queen and Company.  They are always so bright and cheerful.  Everything is organized by color-so it's hard not to want 1 of everything.

For my mom this Mother's Day, I made this shaker card.  The flower paper came from a magazine gift.  Everything else is Queen and Co.  I mad the 2 little flowers at the top with a paper punch.  All of the fun sequins inside the shaker are Queen and Co as well.  The sentiment is a stamp from Stampin Up (I think).

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by today!  And early Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there.  

Turtle Card

Hello Everybody (again) LOL,

I have another card I would like to share with you this evening.  I made this cute little turtle card.  I had this stencil that I hadn't used yet.  So I thought I turtle would be a great focal point.  Especially, since this is a belated birthday card. :)

This turtle is a die cut from from the Cuttebug-so it's a little old.  ;)  I put little googly eyes on him-and it made him instantly cuter.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz's crazy talk.  I love this set of sentiments.

I am submitting this into the challenge at The Male Room #59 Many Legs.

Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my long as you cross the finish line-that's all that matters. :)

Graduation Card

Hello Everybody!

I have been busy making cards-so now I am ready to post them!  :)

My first card is a graduation for a friend of ours who is graduating from college.

I used Dylusions ink blue and white to create the background.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.  The cool graduation scene is a die cut that is pop dotted.  The graduates die cut is from the Silhouette store.  I loved it the first time I saw it.

I am submitting this card to the Little Red Wagon #392 Time to Celebrate.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends-Celebrate! :)
