Another Bday card for tonight.....

I'm pretty sure this card is going to be for my brother. I do believe he's going to be 19 on the 10th of April. Isn't that horrible! I can't remember if he'll be 19 or 20.....but I'm pretty sure he's going to be 19. He likes monkeys and I LOVE these changito stamps by Stampendous. Slowly I'm collecting them 'all'. HAD to use that 'Happy Birthday' cuttlebug embossing folder again, of course! :) Some cardstock is SU! some CTMH and the patterned paper is scraps from....somewhere. I'm tired and I think I'm going to head off to bed BUT I'm glad I've got another card done. If I can make another up for my sister, who's bday is the 2nd, I can put them all in the box going out for my mom tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by.
Come back again soon! :)

Birthdays, birthdays, birthdays....

I was reminded the other day, when I went to Aura's blog, of just HOW many April birthdays I have.....most of mine are from the beginning to the middle of the month. I've been WANTING to get into my stampin room but I've just been SO STINK'IN busy. Would someone PULEAAASE stop this crazy train!!! I've only come up with this card so far but I figured I may as well post it now seeing as how I haven't posted anything in a while and WHO knows what the next few days will hold OR if I'll get a chance to post anything else I make anytime soon. We'll see...........

Anyways, here's what I did tonight:
I picked up a REAL cute set the other day (Clear Design Cupcakes). The cupcake came from that set. I just love it.
My mom sent me a few Cuttlebug embossing folders, one being the Happy Birthday one that I used here--PERFECT for this month!!
My husband surprised me and bought me the entire set of Nestabilities (What a guy!! Gotta LOVE him!!). I've been DYING to play with them since they arrived on Friday so guess what? YEAP!......used them too!!! The white background is kinda white.........I keep feeling like I want to put something there but don't come up with anything. I used Xmas red stickles on the cherry and after it dried I covered it with Diamond Glaze. It's not completely dry in the pic...that's why it looks cloudy-like in the middle.
I'll hope to post something again soon....
Until then,
Happy Stamping!!

Happy Birthday Tori!!

This card is for my BF's daughter Tori!!

The last time I saw her I didn't have her gift with me---I didn't have a card at the time either so now I have a card to go with her gift. :)
Nikki has been into hippos for some time now so I'm hoping Tori will like THIS hippo!!
Hopefully I'll get a chance to create some time soon---though I don't see it happening THIS week. Busy, busy..........

Another purse

I had a feeling I'd become addicted to these!!!
Here's another.

I never in a bajillion years thought I'd find a way to use up all those sequins in the My Accents (CTMH) jar. Well, I think I just may have figured it out! LOL
I was actually thinking of adding a flap and a button but when I pulled down those 'my accents' there were those sequins and I thought, PEFECT!! I like it!! I also cut out one of the the little flowers and put a jump ring through it so that is dangling down there on the side too. Now to make up a few cards for this one!

How TOTALLY cute is THIS!!!

I made my daily visit to Charmaine's blog (I just LOVE her blog) and found THE CUTEST purse!! SHE got the directions from Melanie's blog at Hands, Head and Heart . Well, when I saw it I KNEW I had to try it out and since I was STOOD UP today (JUST KIDDING!!!) I knew I had PLENTY of time to do it.

I too, just used some 'scrap straps' to make sides as I think I'll make up some 3x3 cards to place inside.
What a cute little gift right? I think I know what I'LL be busy doing today!! This time of the year is such a BUSY time for birthdays and I can't think of anyone who wouldn't like receiving one of these little beauties filled with a few cards.
Patterened Paper (American Crafts), Cardstock (SU!) Ribbon: White Daisy Organdy (CTMH) and blue grossgrain (Michaels). I also used some dew drops (The Robin's Nest).
Thanks for looking.

It's been a while....I know.

I was sick, with that 'ol 'flu-like virus' everyone else in the country seems to be suffering through. UGH. It was just horrible. I am feeling better now though, Thanks to God.
I haven't done ANY creating since my last post. :( I DID sit up for a while last night and water color some images so I'm HOPING to get those put together today. I'd like participate in Beate's Weekend sketch too. I guess I'd better get busy then huh? Well, I just got the kids on the bus so..............
But before that....

It just HIT me! Why don't I POST the extra's and stuff I don't use anymore on my BLOG!?!
