Wedding Card

I have been working on a wedding card for a couple of weeks now. My Brother In Law is getting married and I have been thinking of all kinds of ideas for a card.  I decided to try of shape card, mostly because of jitterbuggin' challenge. I really don't know how I feel about this card but it took me so long to make I had to post it.  I took the wine bottle and glass from Simply Charmed and spent one whole day messing around on Design Studio with it. After I got all the cuts, I cut out Celebrate from Simply Charmed too.  I used Stickles again. ( Imagine that) The pink embellishments are from Michaels and the Ribbon is from Wal-Mart. Sorry no inside yet!

Happy Birthday Daddy

My Dad's Birthday is on Monday and with this card, I plan on making him some chocolate covered pretzels.  I usually do not make very mushy cards (I am just not a mushy person) but I had a very hard time coming up with a card. That was until I saw this picture on Graphic Fairy. Right away I knew that caption should be Happy Birthday Daddy.  I used left over pattern paper from Creativity, Inc. from the "foof-a-la" paper pad. I cut out the frame from Heritage and the heart border is from Storybook. All the accents are from Michaels which was probably in their dollar bin.

So I only have half of these done when Jaclynne came home from school and told me that her party is Friday! Friday, why? Valentine's Day is Monday, am I missing something.  Well, lucky for me, my husband was working late so I worked my butt off to get all of these done.  She need 14 but she wanted one so I made 15. Then one for the teacher. So I guess I really made 16. I used the Create a Critter cartridge and pulled put my scrap drawer and pretty much just dug thru it to find paper.  The stamps are Recollection Celebrate Spring set which I love. So of them have pieces from K&C Company Valentine's Tags. I also used lots of Stickles because I LOVE them.

100th day of school Tshirt

Jaclynne had her 100th day of school celebration and she need to design a shirt.  This is what we came up with.  We used fabric remnants from Jo-Ann's and the flowers are glued on the Tshirt. She really loved it.

I used Create a Critter on the card. Of course I had to use Stickles too. I just love Stickles. I also used ink to make the pink cheeks. The pattern paper is Simply Fun by reminise that I found at Michaels. Now I usually do not buy any of my craft supplies unless I have a coupon or it is on sale but boy paper is very hard to find. When I saw the monkeys and dinosaurs and even the rockets in this paper, I bought it. Ever thing else is scraps which I have a feeling I will never get thru!!
