More baby goodies

Seems I'm stuck on baby stuff this week. Here is a spiral notebook I decorated for a new mom. Something from the $1 store to which I added new cover papers, metal words, paper flowers, rhinestones, sheer ribbons and a stamped image. Kelly loved it and I bet Oliver would too except hes just 9 mos old.

So many cards.....

I have not been very productive lately with my card making. A few here and there for special occasions and people. However, I still have lots to share from pictures of cards made in the recent past. I'll share this week a stash of cards aiming for one post per day. After spending a week with my 5 mos old niece Noelle I thought we'd start with a baby card. Here we go...

This was a baby card for a friend. Graphic 45 papers, a retired Stampin' Up set for the sheep, white pearl puff paint and rub ons for the saying. Easy and adorable.

More to come tomorrow!

Happy Birthday Missy Diane!

Happy Birthday Diane! Missy Diane Queen Bee Ya-Ya for those in the know. Happily we chatted on your day. Sadly, your card is yet to be mailed but is made and in the envelope! Another fun card from the Crafty Secrets paper pad filled with ready to go images. Only Missy Di would enjoy a card with fingers holes to make this swimming ladies legs. Fingers shapelier than mine would make a better model.

Take time today to make a card for someone. It'll make their day and your too.

Here is a special card for my Aunt Carolyn. It's a Thank You and Thinking of You card because she is so special. Really simple by using the Crafty Secrets Journal Notes and Image pad of papers. Its a super pack of images, this one is from the Summertime collection. Love it! A little cuttlebug embossed background, a few flowers, buttons, ribbon, pearls and voila!
Despite being knee deep in home remodeling, not fun, I'm glad to have found the time and space to make her a special card. Aunt Carolyn, forgive its late arrival!!

Studio 490 give-away

Head on over to Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 blog to enter her give-away. She makes those great Studio 490 stamps; her designs and samples are to die for! I made these 3 cards for a class at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.

Good luck, but I still hope I win. Smile!
