Happy Birthday Bernadette!

bernibday1Today is my sister Berni’s birthday. So yesterday I decided to make her card (yes, cutting it close – I agree).  I love using digital stamps for the flexibility of making custom sizes. I figured I wouldn’t waste paper and cut out extra. I used the print and cut feature on Silhouette to make it happen.


This is a Mo Manning image and versatile. I like using it for birthday cards but will definitely look for more uses in the future.

bernibday3I used my Copics to color her up and will be mailing it off (late) with a bunch of fun goodies I put together for her.  I hope she likes it.

It’s cold today but I am being rather productive so that is making the day zoom by fast.

I hope you all have a blessed day.


Birthday step card for baby


Hello Everyone! I hope you all are well. Today is a dreary dark and I mean so dark that I have extra lights on to make me think it’s really daytime. The rain is coming down hard and I am dreading pick up today. The idea of standing in a downpour for over 10 minutes is not appealing the least to me. Right now it is coming down so hard it is like a sheet of rain that you can’t see through.

On the sunnier side of things I wanted to share this super cute step card I made for my dear friend Ashley’s baby girl, who just turned 1. I found this cute file on the Silhouette design store and had to have it.babycard2I was so happy when I found the polka dot paper that matched my envelope from Paper Source. The little puffy kitty embellishment is from none other than Crate Paper. The product is called Wonder and it has the cutest puffy stickers in this set. I actually received it in my Gossamer Blue kit.babycard3I used pop dots to give the dresser drawers more dimension and added pearls for the draw pulls. It came together rather quickly and I just love the warm color palette.babycard4I used one of the canvas bags I bought last year on clearance at Target to hold the envelope and used foam letters to personalize the bag.

We had a really nice time at the party and the weather was great so the kids could play outside.

I am off now to get some work completed before that dreadful, drenching I will experience today at pick up!!

Have a blessed day my friends!


Make a Card Monday #1:Happy Birthday Wish with Tiddly Inks digi


Hello and happy Monday! It’s cold outside here but the sun is shining bright so all is well.  I had a fun weekend. On Saturday, I spent the whole day, crafting with my girlfriends up in Groveland.  I loaded up a bunch of images to color for cards, cutfiles from my Silhouette to assemble and my Project Life album (you know I’m trying to catch up!). I brought my Beats Pill and we listened to Christmas music all day. Yes, you heard me correctly, Christmas music in November. I say this with my head held high!  I love this time of year and I enjoy the music and let’s face it, 25 days of Christmas music is hardly enough. We had great fun and I actually accomplished a lot.

Enough about my weekend, I just wanted to share with you a new card I made. It’s a birthday card. I created it with this cute Tiddly Inks digi. I of course colored her with my Copics and used Wink of Stella on her wings for that magical sparkle.  And I added sequins for even more sparkle.  Let’s face it, a girl has to have sparkle.


It coordinated nicely with some envelopes I bought from Paper Source so less work for me and more time to play.

Well I hope you had a great weekend and I look forward to a fun week.

Have a blessed day friends!


Card: Birthday Kisses Card

bernibdaycard1One would think that being that I own an online craft store selling cards and other paper goodies that I would have a great stash of Birthday cards available to send to friends and family.  Well I hate to bust that illusion out to space but, that is not my reality.  I tend to wait until last minute and put together something. A little stressful yes but that’s what I do.


So yesterday (on my sister’s birthday) I made her this card.  I used Simple Stories ‘Happy Day’ paper that I have horded like forever. I love the rich somewhat muted colors. They make me think of fall.  I added some bling and colored up a Saturated Canary digi.  I added a little Wink of Stella to her lips to give her the lip gloss look. I like using my digis in multiple ways. This one was meant to be a Valentine image but I thought it would be cute as a birthday so I added the words in Silhouette and print and cut her out.

bernibdaycard3I pulled out a kraft envelope from my stash (Thank you Ashley for getting me to order bulk with you!) and sized the card accordingly.

bernibdaycard4The inside I used coordinating paper and left it simple so I can write a clever message in it. Possibly begging for forgiveness for m tardiness.

Well I am off to do some more crafting. I hope you all have a blessed day!
