Hailey's 7th Birthday Party

My Granddaughter, Hailey, had her 7th Birthday Party
at the Crystal Palace Skating Rink and absolutely loved it!
I do, however, think her Grandmother should be tarred and
feathered for not bringing a camera.  Thankfully, her aunt
came prepared and saved the day!  We did not though get
even one picture with her skates on!   Tarred and feathered
I tell you!  LOL

Paper and embellishments were by
XMartin Designs.

Hugs and Kisses

This weekend, I was stamping with a good friend,
Pat, and I had literally no idea in mind.  At the end
of the whole process, this is what I came up with.
The image stamp is by Penny Black.  I used clear
word stamps but do not know from what Company.

Have a Great Day

Another card made years ago.  I cannot say
at the moment what stamps were used.

Be Yourself...Everyone Else is Taken

I made this card some time ago.  The image and
word stamps are from Close to My Heart.

Thanks Cards

I whipped these cards out so quickly, with two Cricut Cutouts
each, and because of that I am amazed that they look so good.
(The stamp used was from The Angel Company)


This is Claudia's Mimosa.  The stamp company
is Bildmalarna from Sweden.  Claudia, of course
used Copics to expertly finish off this card!  Adorable!

My Heart,,,

This is a card that I made for my Husband for our
9th Anniversary next month.  I liked it so well that
I also made more of them as Club Cards.  I love
Jerry and I love those colors together!
