Welcome New Baby Owl!

So I started making this new baby card and wasn't sure how to make it work with the sketch challenge on The Craft's Meow Blog...but then it all started to come together and needless to say yes it is 1:22am!!  I figured I better go ahead and post this just in case I don't have time tomorrow (actually today - LOL!!).  Here is the sketch & my card:

I love this set Owl Be Thinking of You!  Definitely a new favorite!  This pic isn't the greatest...sorry rushing, but you can see that I actually pulled out the sewing machine after midnight!

Flashback Friday 15.0

It is time for a flashback!  The challenge for Flashback Friday 15.0 is to repost your first fall card.  Let's head on back to fall of 2009 when I posted this...

Hmmm, great angle I have going on there!

40 & Fabulous!

I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge to make a 40th Birthday card for my friend. I know it's hard to turn 40 (not that I'm there yet!!) so what better way then to say she's fabulous?!? :) Here's the sketch:

I tried using just plain kraft paper since I've been loving all the cards I've been seeing with kraft lately. But I'm just not a plain & simple girl - I had to spice it up with some ink "distressing". Then I decided to make a little gift box filled with her favorite candies - Mentos!
I made up this box because I wanted to fit 6 rolls of Mentos in it. It it came out pretty good - very impressed with myself - LOL!
