Only 2 days until the big party. Everything is coming together very nicely. Hopefully, I will get some great photos and post this weekend or Monday how it all turned out.

My share for today is none other than another "happy birthday". It features one of my happy birthday stamps that I have never shown before. Enjoy!

Didn't turn out as planned

Have you ever started out to make one thing and ended up with something entirely different? Well, lets just say that today's share is just that. I wanted to make a birthday card. However, my creativity took a turn. I really like how this came out. In fact, it is one of my favorite baby boy cards in a long time. For me and what I have been making, it is refreshingly unique.

Birthday Countdown Week

Well, it is official birthday countdown week here in our house. Our son will turn 4! We really like to make a big "to-do" over birthday's. Okay, I like to make the fuss. I am fast at work trying to complete all the decorations and finishing touches for the grand celebration.

So, here is a Happy Birthday card to celebrate this fantastic event in our family.

My Favorite Movie is Out Today

I am totally excited! One of my new favorite movies is out on DVD today - Enchanted. I am a huge fan of Patrick Dempsey and of course Grey's Anatomy (if it will ever come back on). I saw this at the theaters and fell in love. I love how a cartoon comes to life. It is my dream come true. :)

I am posting a Thank You card in faith that I will get the movie. Enjoy! Oh, and pay special attention to the stamp. It is one of my stamps from my last set.

Another Teacher Card

I was so inspired by my first teacher card, the school bus, that I decided to make another. I really liked how this turned out. It is really a fun card. Now I want to make some more tree cards. :) Funny how that works!

Falling for You!

I touted my custom stamps and haven't shown another one since. :) I will try to get some together and posted. I know of a new stamp that I will add to my next order: Falling for You! I made a card using this idea I had after pulling a punch out of my archives. It didn't turn out exactly like I wanted, but you will get the idea.

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday to you! I hope this post finds everyone doing great!

I have another card share today. I found this stamp at Michael's a while back and fell in love. It was a part of a $1 set. You cannot beat that! I am just now getting around to using it.

Contents: Paper - My Mind's Eye; Ribbon - RABOM; Scallop - Marvy Uchida; Stamp - Studio G; Color - Copic Sketch Markers

Speaking of Copics, I really need to figure out how to better use mine. I am getting by and LOVING the look. However, I see all these fantastic things colored using them and know that I need some more practice/help. If you have run across any great tutorials, I would appreciate the info.

Have a Great Day!!

It is hard to believe what time of the year it is!

I seems like life just keeps flying by faster and faster! In just another week, it will already be Spring Break. Wow! It seems like summer is just on the heals of that. We are gearing up for of son to start school next year. (Insert my sad eyes!) I have made a fun thank you card to give to a teacher.

I was inspired to make a shaped card from the "Bitten by the Bug" blog. They had a contest a month or so back. This is what I started and never finished. :)

My Very Own Official Custom Stamps

Yes, you read that right! I have just completed my very own set of stamps. I have made so many new ones of all sorts of styles and occasions. I cannot wait to share them all with you. I have been working on these for so long. I finally jumped in with both feet and had them made. I couldn't be happier with the results. I have a hard time finding the right sentiments in the right size. It was so good to custom create my own.

The first custom stamp I want to reveal is a wedding stamp. I think it is so hard to find good sentiments for Wedding cards. I like something versatile that can be used for a shower and wedding day card. I love how my "Wishing You Happily Ever After" came out. I have never seen anything like this before. So, enjoy!

Thanks for looking! I would love to know what you think of my new endeavor!
