Happy to be here to share!

Hello my faithful followers!
I know that I promised to be better about keeping up with my blog. I know that I am failing! I am a work in progress. :-)

Today I am going to share a card that I made for a friend today, and another for a 2 year-olds' birthday. First is the one that I made for a friend. It's just a "cheer-me-up" card. I used a 3D sticker. The patterned paper is Basic Grey from my stash. I used a punch to dress up the sides and made the card like a double card. I'm sure that it has another name! But, this will do! Below is the top card.

Below is the inside of the main card. It's different, but I think that it came out kind of cute! What do you think?

Next I will share a birthday card for a two-year-old. He is a cutie patootie and I wanted to make something special for him. I used all Basic Grey for this card.
It's hard to see that I punched the edge with a birthday candles punch. I then took yellow Stickles and made the flames on the candles. The pictures on the inside of the card are actually rub ons. I added the Happy Birthday stamped below the dinosauer.

I hope that you have big plans for the upcoming weekend! Here in Texas we have lots of festivals this weekend. We are sure to attend at least one of them! It is Oktoberfest time! It makes me dream of being in Munich for Oktoberfest...what fun we had! Have fun, whatever your plans are, and cherish every day with those you love!

Happy Birthday to my nephew, Travis, who is 16 today! WOO HOO! Another driver on the road...beware! :-)

Hugs to you!

She lives!

Good morning, my long lost friends!

As I said in my title...she lives! Yes, I am here and am among the living! I am going to try to get back into the swing of things after a long time away from home and my blog!

Before I begin, let me say Happy Birthday to my daughter, Brandi! I also want to recognize 9/11, and send prayers out to all of those who lost family and friends on the day that America woke up to find that we are not untouchable. May we always keep our awareness at a healthy level, and never again allow the terrorists think that they can change our lives any more than they already have. 

Okay, now for today's card!  I am sharing a House Mouse card today, using a stamp called Flower Bed. The mouse featured on this card is called Muzzy. Cute, huh?! I just love the House Mouse stamps!

I used a product called Smooch for the flower. It has a shimmery look to it, which I really like. Sadly, it doesn't show up on the picture. I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the rest of the card.

I plan to share many more cards with you in the coming days. I am just getting back into making cards, after being away for a month. It has taken me longer to get back into the swing of things than I thought!

Hugs for a wonderful day and weekend!
