Anna Maria Island Vacation

We had lots of fun at Anna Maria Island in April of 2013! 

This was on the pier.  The day started out cool but then it warmed up.  The beach with its white sand beckoned us to play!
And we did just that!

Hope everyone has a beachy day!

Mickey Mouse Scrapbook Page

This was the end of our day at Disney... Anna had just been to the Bippity Boppity Boutique and we were on our way to the parking lot and she wanted a kiss from mommy.  So glad I was there to capture the moment! 

The Disney Paper was purchased at JoAnne Fabric and Crafts for 50% off.  I love getting a bargain!  The Real Red and Basic Black is from Stampin' Up. 

Thanks for looking!

PPA192- A Sketch Challenge

I thought I would try something different and with three bridal showers coming up, this works perfectly!  I layered Pretty in Pink, Black and embossed the Cherry Cobbler.  Love my Big Shot and sent through the Dress Up Die in printed paper and the Apothecary Accent Die in Very Vanilla to create the look.  Rhinestones were added for a necklace and the paper and rosettes were purchased on Stampin' Up's Clearance Rack.  The rosette was sponged with some Pretty in Pink ink.  I can't wait to make more!

Sympathy Card

Sometimes we need to send a sympathy card and the layout was CASED from Sherry Weldy's Stamp Club. I used some different stamps.  Pirouette Pink and Plum are used for the card stock along with Whisper White.  The flowers in the back round were first stamped on scrap paper and then on the card stock.  You could also use this as a sympathy card for a pet if you stamped some doggie bones or paw prints in the back round. 

Stampin' Hugs to all!

Happy Monday everyone!  One day closer to Spring!! We've seen the sun for a few days over the weekend even though we received 2 more inches of snow.  The best part is being cooped up inside and making cards!

I used Stampin' Up's Gray, Blushing Bride and Real Red.  I then embossed the Blushing Bride piece and sprayed it with some Smooch Spritz for some extra glam.  The Thinlit's Expression die, "Love" works perfectly for Valentine's Day!  I then layered on a Heart Doily and a Cottage Rose 3-d sticker.  This card was fun, quick and easy to assemble. 

Happy Valentines Day!

Victorian Christmas Cards

Goodness sakes! We are expecting more snow this week and that means I will be up in the craft room creating more masterpieces! 

I need to get caught up with the scrapbooking!

The gutters have fallen off the house due to ice and too much snow on the roof, we've had frozen pipes but are still blessed with good health and that's the important thing!  We are one day closer to Spring!

Being snowed in has taught me patience.  And my house is the cleanest it has been in awhile.  I even cleaned the craft room!  Now it's time to get back up there and make more messes! 

These cards are from a kit by Anna Griffin.  I added extra embellishments and can't believe my cards for this Christmas are done! I finished the ones I started last Christmas and didn't get out. Those are from Stampin' Up's product line and they are really cute.   I have a feeling that Stampin' Up will come out with something fantastic for Christmas this year and it will be hard to resist. 

Stay warm and safe out there everyone!
