I used my Cricut Expression to make these gift card holders. They are so easy to make and fit perfectly in a standard size invitation envelope. Thanks for stopping by!

Kelly's Baby Shower Invite prototype

This is a "prototype" of the baby shower invitation I designed for my DFAM (daughter-from-another-mother :) I will post a photo of the finished invite after we have finished them and they are in the mail!

ATCs (Artist Trading Card) are so much fun to do! This is the second swap I have participated in over at Roni's Ink Stains blog! The thing I like the most about these cards is that there is only one rule: The card has to be 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" (horizontal or vertical)... that's it! No other rules!

Great Friend card

This card was inspired by the Great Friend stamp set from Stampin' Up (luv, luv, luv their stamps). The badge, sentiment and the butterfly are from that set. The badge and butterfly are heat embossed in gold; I added a piece of gold ribbon on the panel; and bling for the butterfly's body. Card supplies are from my stash.

Lovers Layout

This layout can be used for your Valentine picture, wedding picture, or any picture of love:) The base paper is from the Recollection line (Hobby Lobby), the patterned paper is also from HL but I don't remember which vendor; I cut the xoxo and Love on the Cricut; the pearl strip is from JoAnn's, and the bling from my stash. If you would like to purchase this layout, just let me know! Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!

A few weeks ago I had extensive colon surgery and have been recuperating since then (the recuperating time is kind of lengthy, but not as long as some other surgeries, so I am grateful for that). This whole experience has been an emotional roller-coaster for me - and I just want to get over it...
My creative mojo is just starting to perk up again: slowly but surely:)
I designed a page that is perfect to scrap your favorite valentine picture or your favorite pic of you and your honey! I also created a card for a special friend. I will post those tomorrow.
Please keep me in your prayers as I recuperate.
A million hugs to you from me:)!
