Coaching Football

Ok, so I said I was going to post more often. I am soo sorry! I am coaching my 10 year old son's tackle football team. I am an assistant coach, the manager of the kids, but I have learned a ton about football! And they are so cute! I have been so busy with that. I haven't made a thing in forever. As school starts back up, I am hoping that will change. I hope all are well!

Thank You Flowers

I know this is a lousy picture! I have got to get a new camera! Anyways, I used my Giga scallop punch to create these flowers. I punched out the chipboard and then the patterned paper, stuck on a TY sticker, used dimensionals to stick the parts together and they were done! The sticks are some I had in my "everything" drawer for BBQ. I just rolled them in green ink. I tried to make the ribbon look like leaves. I put these in the hanging baskets we gave the kids' teachers at the end of the school year. On the back was a white circle with a little note. I should have taken a picture of them in the baskets. They looked really cute.

Simple Thank you

A quick little Thank You using Studio G Dollar stamps, blush blossom CS, my kids' gel pens, my trusty paper piercer, and some pearl embellies! I am going to try to post something a few times a week from here on out!

I am a professor at our community college. We just had graduation, and it was even more special this year because my nephew was a graduate. This is the card I made for him. Our colors are black and gold. The stamps are Studio G, and the MCC 2009 stickers are from the Dollar Spot at Target. The patterned paper is from my scrap box. The layout is from Paper Craft Planet's Studio G Group. Happy Graduation to all Grads!

Lollipop, Lollipop, Oh Lolly Lollipop.... Lollipop!!!

This card makes me sing that song! It also makes me think of that Toostsie Roll Pop Owl. Anyways, the owls are from Simon Says Stamp and the Lollipop is a Studio G $1 stamp. I drew the tree and there are stickles on the lollies. Have a great day! I hope you won't be singing this tune all day!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge #2: Recycle

Happy Earth Day! This is my first time at the computer today. My boys and I celebrated Earth Day by not putting on any lights, televisions, or playing ANY video games. This was tough for them because it was raining and they are on Spring break from school. We did lots of crafts today and played lots of board games. I made this card for Simon Says Stamp Challenge #2. I used Simon Says Stamps froggies that I just got! I love them! The boat was the flap from an envelope box and the signs the frogs are holding were tags from new shorts I got the other day. The oar is also cut out of one of those tags. The bellies of the frogs are paper pieces from a birthday card my husband got last week. This was fun!

Flutterby Wednesday Challenge and TECC61

This is a card I made as a Thank You for someone special. I tackled the Flutterby Wednesday Challenge and Taylored Expression Cupcake Sketch Challenge 61. I used a stamp I just received from Inkadinkado today for submitting cards for their gallery. This butterfly is so pretty! I used So Saffron, White and Blush cardstock. The patterned paper is from TAC. I used a fiskars punch and my scallop circle punch.
