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.
