Moments that Count...

It's ALOHA work till Monday...well at least for most of us! TGIF yah?! Well I have one more card to share with you. I wanted to make something really special for my dear friend TAMMI. She has blessed me so much not only with her beautiful creations but also with her friendship! We have never met, but I can't wait till the day we do! I just got these cuties from TGF and I had to ink them up! they were so much fun to color and I wanted to make my cards a little more fancy for her as she decks out her cards & creations tremendously! I don't think I managed to do that, but I tried =) I found a place, from Tammi, where you can buy such wonderful word art. it's called: Scrapbook Graphics. I used my sentiment from there. I added a flower, some swirls, a butterfly charm and some sparkle. I paper pieced their hats too. I hope she got this before I posted it.
I wanted to share this wonderful creation with you...Tammi has created the most fabulous and beautiful calendar with her cute hanglar stanglar stamps. I am so blown away from her attention to detail...coloring, embellishments and all that other good stuff~! Enjoy!
last but not least...I was so shocked to receive this in the mail! It was a beautiful card and some unbelievable stamps! I am so grateful to Tammi...for her friendship as well as her generosity! there are not enough words to express my gratitude. THANK YOU TAMMI!
Have a wonderful and safe weekend and...~Remember to enjoy the little things in life, don't be too critical on every little thing-pick and choose your battles and treasure what you have as it's always a blessing~

Oh so sweet...

...HONEY with PUPPY...
Happy Hump Day everyone...this week seems to be moving a little faster as Monday was a holiday for most of us. I got to hang out with my bff and just enjoy the day. Any whoo...I started to make my thank you cards as I am so bad at doing that. But I really want to thank everyone who remembered my birthday. I got these sweet digis at All that Scraps. She's part of the digi honey line called: Honey with Puppy. I wanted to keep it simple yet sweet. She fit perfectly on my labels seventeen and I also used my oval nesties as well. Spritzed her with my sparkle spray, added a butterfly, a swirl and some pearls and we are done!
I know I said that blog candy would be's on it's way. I am just a little behind in posting and creating and all that other good stuff. hang in there~ thanks for stopping by and till next time: "it's never by chance that our pathes crossed, but it was by choice that you became my friend..."

Slider Pop Up Card...

Hello Everyone! It's Tuesday and I am posting again...SAY WHAT?! haha! well here's my story. I had a tutorial on a surprise pop up card, but the directions seemed a little too much for me. So I went hunting for an easier card. I came across a You Tube video on how to make a slider pop up card. I said...okay I can try this one. I am a very visual, hands on kind of person, so this was just right for me. So this is my first slider pop up card I made. This one is for my kid who turned 20~ this past weekend! I got this hanglar stanglar stamp on Ebay! I cut a little slit open on top of the wagon and added a couple hearts. Used my label seventeen nesties, added some bling and all done!
here's what it looks like once it opened.
Hope you are having a great start to the week!
Keep on Crafting and thanks for stopping really does mean a lot!

Be Blessed,

Product Spotlight...Belles 'n Whistles

Happy...Happy Valentines Monday! Today's Product Spotlight of the week is: BELLES 'N WHISTLES at Stamp and Create. Go and stop by and get these cuties for 25% off! I do love this line as the images are so cute! I was blessed to be able to use the stamp called: CUPCAKE. These stamps are so detailed and there is a lot to color. but I enjoyed myself. I decided to make this card for a dear, sweet friend, who's birthday is coming up. I used my label seventeen nestie and used the out of the frame technique. I used some pretty flowers, pink bling, my cuttlebug embossing folder called: stylized flowers and a few sentiments from SU.
here's what the card looks like once you pop it open. I added another sentiment inside. You can also write a message if you choose to. I think I will make a few more =)
Hope you are going to be pampered and loved today!
Have a Happy Valentine's Day ~~

Petal Cone Box...

Happy Monday everyone! The Product Spotlight at Stamp and Create is one more week of Valentines/Love. So if you didn't get a chance to purchase some stuff, now's the time! You can get it for 25% off. So on to my creation! I have something wonderful to share with you! I have wanted to make a trapezoid box for quite some time now and I have been looking for a template and just didn't find one that I really liked. Then I found a blog and found this cute box using the petal cone from SU. You can see the tutorial here. I really fell in love with this I made 30 of these for my co-workers and friends. Once you know what to do, it's so easy to make. All you are going to do is cut off part of the bottom of the cone, make your own base and you are done! Here's what the petal cone die looks like...
So I decided to create with these cuties from TGF! This set is called: Naughty or Nice. You can purchase this at Stamp and Create, although its NOT one of the stamps on sale this week, but I just had to make something with these girls!
here's how I closed the top and added a little tag to it...
this is what it looks like once it' opened up and filled with goodies =)
and here's a picture of the rest of the boxes I made. I had lots of fun making these and I also tried another size to this came out so cute! I will share with you that one later.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Here's to another fabulous week! Today is a special day as it's my birthday! I will be sharing some "candy" with you later on this week. So stay tuned! thanks for stopping by and till next time...
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
It is not self-seeking, nor easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongdoing.
It does not delight in evil,
But rejoices in the truth.
It always protects, trusts, hopes, and preserves.
There is nothing love cannot face;
There is no limit to its faith, hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things that last forever:
Faith, hope, and love;
But the greatest of them all is love.

~1 Corinthians 13:4-7
