A Surprise In The Mail

Jamie came home one day and passed me a letter from the mail. It turned out to be a lovely hand stamped card from my good friend, Penny! I love simple cards and this fits the bill just fine. =) Thank you Penny! Your card is beautiful!

More Thank You's

Happy belated Earth Day everyone! It's been crazy busy around our little household. But I did manage to find time to craft a few weeks ago. Did I ever mention that I absolutely love my new Labels framelits from Stampin' Up? I was waiting for so long for Stampin' Up to come out with a die this shape and when they did with this past mini catalogue, I was ecstatic. This will be something that I'll use again and again. Here's another couple thank you cards I made a few weeks ago.

Sketch Cuts

I received a letter today from my good friend, Jinnee. It was an invitation to visit her new blog, Sketch Cuts. I have been bugging her to create a blog for some time now and all I can say is WOW. She doesn't mess around when she sets her mind to something! Go big or go home? She went way big in my opinion! I am loving every little thing about it. She has great ideas, tutorials, tips and photos! This is a picture of what I received in my letter. She cut this cute little creature out on her Silhouette CameoPlease support her and check out her new blog Sketch Cuts

Daisies Card

These two fun cards were CASEd from the talented Georgeann Manning. Although her daisies look way better than mine. I just couldn't figure out how to get it symmetrical. I used the oval punch and each card took 10 ovals. I think the card looks uber cute if you take your fingers and roll the edges of the petals up a bit. The top card isn't actually using a button for the middle because it's too hard to mail sometimes so it's just a circle punched out. It works great for cards that need mailing.

Thank You Notes

I absolutely love clean and simple cards, but most of you know that by now. =) 
I'm enjoying all of my Big Shot embossing folders. It gives simple cards just that extra bit of a wow factor and adds detail without adding too much color or pzazz.

Belated Valentine's Day

We had a secret Valentine gift exchange this past Valentine's day. This is what I made for my secret lover. I cut out a heart template and used it to stamp all the L's. I absolutely love how it turned out.
