Photo Purge - catching up

Ugh, I suck at blogging. I really only use this as a catalog of my stuff since once I make it I never see it again but even that is becoming too much work. I rarely have time to make stuff anymore.
I was just uploading pictures of my kid's birthday and found some cards I snapped. I am even getting bad about taking pictures of my cards so this blog will likely die a slow death soon.

Anyway, here is the card I made for my nephew's first birthday! I have had Mini Monsters for a year and finally used it.

And this is a birthday card that I made 2 for my sister-in-law and one for my boss. I am loving the Wrap it Up cartridge, highly recommend.

Thanks for looking!

Get Well Card

My favorite client at work had an appendectomy last week and has been out of commission for awhile. I made this for him when he gets back to work :)

Birthday Banner!

My picture stinks because I had my zoom lens on and couldn't get far enough way to get a good picture. Oh well!
I think Tottums did such a great job of hanging this banner. (Her pics are MUCH better also, go check out the party pics! )It really made it look awesome. We had a great time at the party!

Shark Birthday Invites

I made these invites for my friend's son's 3rd birthday.
I am in love with this color scheme, so fresh and summery!

Stay tuned for pictures of the adorable birthday banner to match the theme!

Birthday card

I had to make a card for the office to sign for a coworker. She liked bright colors and anything that reminds her of Hawaii. :)

Hippo Birthday!

Just a quick card!

Mother's day card sets

I apologize in advance for the horrible pictures, I really need to bust out the good camera because this is not cutting it. And they keep loading sideways. GRRRRR.

First up is the set I made for my Mother-In-Law. I will be honest, I am not in love with it. I *LIKE* it but I did it first and I think I picked up some tips along the way because I like my mom's much better.

I bought the box and pen at Micheals. Mother-in-law aka Mamaw, loves red so that was my jumping off point.

I do love this gold on gold paper, it feels really luxurious. I just wish I would have done a little something extra. Not sure what.

I will do better next time. I am not sure my poor mother-in-law even gave it a second glance.
Now, my mom's (aka Gigi) is better for two reasons. 1 - I LOVE this teal/cream color scheme and 2- I had a kit that helped me immensely when it came to matching papers with embellishments. Huge difference and I will know better next time than to try to create these sets without a kit.

I wanted to keep this set for myself.

My mom seemed extremely happy with it. Love you mommy!

And for good measure, here is the little poot that made me a mommy. Love you baby girl!

Yes we kiss on the mouth, lol. I wouldn't have it any other way <3

Kachow! A "Cars' themed card

Happy Birthday G-man!
Pooty's little friend is having a Cars themed party so I took a deep breath and pulled out my Cars cartridge for the 5th time and made my first sucessful project from it.
I HATE this cartridge because the pieces are so tiny and there are dozens of tiny pieces for all the images.

But I was determined!

If you don't look too closely at this card it looks amazing, lol!

I hope he likes it!

Oh My! A Minnie birthday

Poot's little friend, Sophia, just turned 3! Yay!
So we attended her super awesome Minnie Mouse themed birthday party.
This is the card I made for her.

And I just inked up and added a ribbon to a little tag for the present. I won the tags for from Erin Lee Creative - she rocks!
Happy birthday Phia!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Yesterday was my mom's birthday. We celebrated last weekend. This is her card, based on her love of all things country and her little dog :-)

The background papers (blue with star and yellow paisley) are from the amazing Erin Lee Creative. The girl and dog are from the Country Life cartridge.
Then I added some vinyl words to this little photo holder, it looks like a change purse but opened up to show pages for pictures. I gave her a shutterfly gift card so that she can fill it up with pictures of her amazing grandchild :-)
Pooty calls her Gigi (usually screamed at the top of her lungs, lol)
Happy Birthday Gigi!

It is really hard to take pictures of shiny things.

Simple Thank You card

Ah, the simple life. A jug of flowers and a thank you...

Dah-ling birthday card!

My sister-in-law's birthday lunch was today so I had to whip up a little card to show we care.
Happy Birthday Kelly!

I know she likes orange so I just went with it. What do you think? Her favorite niece helped me put the orange flowers on :-)

Hubba Hubba and Meow! Valentine Cards for my husband and daughter

First is this seemingly innocent card for my husband.. just some sassy pink lips and is that a heart peeking out of the top of that adorable paper pouch?

Oh la la!
I wrote a private little valentine note on the back of the corset ;p

Next I had to whip up something for baby girl and I didn't have much time. Hello Kitty to the rescue! Simple and Sweet for a 2 year old sweet lil valentine.

Oh la la!

I made this little signage for a coworker who graciously gave me the Ott light she won in our work Christmas gift drawing. Any crafter knows that Ott lights are THE BEST and she didn't care anything about it so she gave it to me. Score!
I made this as a Thank You, she just moved in to a new apartment and loves all things French and she like monograms so that was my inspiration.

I will miss you forever Pawpaw!

I lost my sweet Pawpaw last Monday. Now that the funeral is over and life has resumed I am craving pictures of him. This was taken at Christmas, one month before he went to Heaven.
He is the one in the chair :-)
We miss you Pawpaw!

Bad Blogger - picture heavy project post!

Geez, no new posts since Mid-November! I have been a busy girl though.
Here are some catch-up pictures, yes some are Christmas - oh well!
