Altered 50cent notecards

I got these cards for a friend, Valerie because they were fifty cents. Of course that required a 15 dollar MS edge punch and a 7 dollar Basic Grey Mellow sampler! They took minutes to alter and turned out cute. It was hard to get a picture, though! Hope you get the idea. No stamping on this one. The cards are stacked on one another. Hope you like!

Finally a post! Bella Birthday Gift

I hurriedly (in 10 minutes) made this gift packaging for a special friend of DD's. If I'd had more time, I'd have used some ribbon or other embellishment, but isn't this Bella Rose paper gorgeous? I'm crazy about it. I think I'll have to order more. At my friend Jessica's Vanda's house we made adorable Halloween treats in this style with Kit Kat bars and cute Halloween paper and stamps. All you need to do is cut your paper, put tape along all edges, fold two parallel sides over on each other and use your crimper to crimp the ends. Then decorate with belly bands, etc. It couldn't be easier or cuter! (The gift was a DS game)

FS83 at Splitcoast

I cased this card from Denise, the featured stamper at Splitcoast Stampers. She was wonderful enough to post a template for the dress, too! I used Martha Stewart's Botanicals paper and retired SU rub-ons as well as Whisper White and Chocolate Chip paper. The embellies are Martha Stewart photo corners (all from wal-mart.) I figured if I have to go there for something, I must reward myself with crafty stuff. I have had the ribbon for ages and only know I ordered it on Ebay (from Jacksonbelle I think). Thanks for visiting! I appreciate you looking! Hope you like.

My sister ROCKS

This is my sister (on the right) after running the rock n roll half marathon in 1:45 or so Labor Day weekend. I'm so very proud of her! Here's a picture of our proud "mama", too!
