Anyone celebrating a birthday today? Or know someone who's birthday is this week? Since there's no shortage of birthday's going on at any given time, I like to create lots of birthday cards.

This card was created with Bella Blvd's Birthday Boy collection. With all the festive Ciao Chip accents, Button Market styles and a fun little Flags, it's easy to create a party of a card!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day! :)

Hugs and an Oreo Update


How about a hug? And an adorable smiley face sun? Add some colorfully printed clouds to the mix and you have a cheerful little card.

Can you tell what collection I used to create this card? It's an older one and a favorite of mine. It's Bella Blvd's Sunshine and Happiness line. Perfect name don't you think?

Oreo came back yesterday from being neutered and as many of you predicted, he acted as if nothing happened! In fact, he was running around like a crazy beast last night!

Just look at this adorable little face! Isn't he precious? I love his pink nose! :)

Have a super day!

Some Love and an Oreo


I have a card share for you today that was not created with one of the fabulous new Valentine collections available, but with Pebbles' Seen & Noted goodies instead. Thought I'd show you how to take any line of papers and accents and create a message of love.

I like to mix it up sometimes and go with non-traditional Valentine colors, how about you?

I realized the other day that I haven't mentioned Oreo lately.

This little rascal is growing up! And he's been teething! The other day he found a roll of paper towels in my office that he had to destroy. This guy is a terrorist disguised as an adorable kitten! If it weren't the paper towels, it would have been his two older brothers!

Well, he's going to the vet today to be neutered and I'm a nervous mama! I know this surgery is done millions of times without complications, but I just don't like it! I'll be happy when he's back here at home running amok!

Did you have a good weekend? Our weekend started out with an ice and snow storm so it was the perfect opportunity to play indoors. I love a warm kitchen, fresh baked cookies and a pot of soup on the stove on days like these!

Today on the Doodlebug Design blog they're featuring Icon Stickers from the new Lovebirds collection. Here's my contribution to the projects you will see.

I love the mix of crisp white and soft blue with pink and red. How about you? Want to see more? Hop on over to Doodlebug!

Hope your week starts out on the right foot. Thanks for spending a bit of your day visiting! :)

I Heart You & Giveaway Winner

Hello and T.G.I.F. everyone!

I have a Doodlebug Lovebirds card to share with you before I run out the door to drive Christopher to camp and then run some errands. Have you seen this clever idea to create a message of love within the alphabet? I've seen it a number of times so I'm not sure who's brilliant idea it is, but I thought the new Love Letters Alpha Stickers by Doodlebug would be perfect for it!

The heart in the center is a Mini Doodle Pops dimensional sticker with a Doodle Twine bow fastened on. What do you think? Kinda cute, huh? If you would like to see some more Lovebirds projects from my Doodlebug teammates click here.

Before I run, I have a winner to announce for yesterday's Card Maker magazine giveaway. Congratulations goes to Diana Waite of Scrappy Wonder Woman. Enjoy your magazine Diana!

Have a great day everyone!

You & Me

Good day!

Thanks everyone for your visit yesterday and to those who left comments for my Love Letters card! I really enjoyed hearing from you! :)

Are you ready for another crafty share?

I've been in the mood to work with bright colors and fun patterns lately and this card was created with the Seen and Noted collection from Pebbles. This line includes these cool pocket and tags that I used to hide a  little message. Do you like that element?

Before I go, I'd like to tell you about another card I made to share with you on the Card Annex blog. I hope you have a moment to take a look. Do you recognize the product used for this card? Any guesses before you go?

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day! :)

Love Letters

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Are you ready to start the week off with a happy crafty share?

Last Friday I spent a few hours playing in the craft room and this is one of the cards I created with the new Doodlebug Lovebirds collection.

Included in this adorable new line are these Mini Love Notes and I thought they would look cute hung on a line with little wood clothespins. What do you think? I also used some of Doodlebugs colorful new washi tape and an oldie but goody, a birdies boutique brad.

Well, Christopher is home today for Martin Luther King day. He's here in the office with me. It'll be nice to have him nearby while I work. He's got big plans for building a new train route on the computer. Hope you have a great first day of the week!

Thanks for visiting! :)

Just a Note


It's a sunny beautiful Saturday morning here in North Carolina as I write this post. And I have an equally sunny happy card to share with you today. 

I had some time to play in the craft room yesterday afternoon and pulled out some Pebbles goodies to create this "Just a Note" card. I love the bright colors and the spring feel that the flowers, butterfly and bees add.

I hope all of you have a terrific weekend! Thank you so much for your visit!
