Happy Birthday to Our Youngest Son

Our youngest son recently celebrated his birthday.  OK, I'm not big into masculine cards so although he is an adult, I chose to make this cutsie bunny card.

Cheers for Another Birthday Celebration

It's "Birthday Season" in our family.  Our soon-to-be daughter-in-law just celebrated her birthday and this is the card I made for her.   She and our son have 2 cats so I had to add a kitty to the scene.  The image is from my dear bloggie friend Colleen.  THANK YOU COLLEEN!!!!  I LOVE THIS IMAGE A LOT.

Relish the Day

Our eldest son recently celebrated his birthday. He and his fiancee have 2 cats so I thought it would be fun to add a kitty image to his card.  He LOVES to BBQ too so I inked up my grill and steak images.

July/August Secret Sister Swap

Our theme for the July/August Secret Sister Swap was "boys."  That's usually a challenge for me because I love to make cutsie cards.  Then the light bulb went on....yah....gotta use Yoichi by Sister Stamps.  So I came up with this card for for Cyndi.   As you can tell, I'm not great with sorry, the pix is a bit overexposed.  Oops, forgot to take pix of the RAK I sent to her too....dang.  :-)

My blog pal Colleen was my secret sister and she made this cool card.  So cute yah?   

I LOVE the RAK she sent too.  Super cute image by C.C. Design, pretty note cards, and Rice Ball Shaker.  Can't wait to use it once our kitchen is done... just a few more weeks.  Yay.   THANK YOU SO MUCH COLLEEN.  Don't forget to hop over to her blog here to see her creations, yummy foodie pix, and her travels.
Thanks for stopping by and have a super crafty weekend.

Life's a Beach

Woo-hoo, TGIF and happy it's a holiday!

This has got to be one of the easiest cards I've ever made.  Using one of the beautiful digital paper exclusively from Island Scrapbooking, I cut a section to fit a 5" x 7" card, added Anuhea and Halia by Sister Stamps, and the laser cut sentiment, also by Island Scrapbooking.

This is a pix of the full sheet.   To see more of her new digital paper, click here.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
