Had a great time today, paper flying, inks all over the place!

Created this Halloween card with inspiration thanks to the Holiday Catalog page 48! The catalog has SO many ideas to CASE …. the sample was small 3 x 3 – I made it a standard card size and added layers and additional color. Hard to see the fringe but it is cute (take my word for it!). LOVE the brand new stapler offered by Stampin’ Up! – great reach into the card and love the mini staples!

Bring on the BOOS

So many great items available in the Holiday Catalog and Holiday Supplement! CLICK HERE to browse through the catalogs and products.

Have a great day and get those Halloween cards done …. only a little more than a week away 😉

Floating Grandkids

Hi Everyone;

Had a few minutes to craft this afternoon and wanted to share with you these frames I put together. There is a back story behind them …. first, they are 2 of my 3 grandchildren in the pictures (Sienna and Brady). With Sienna is Michele (my niece) and Michele has a BIG soft spot for Sienna.

Michele lives with my son Kyle, who loves all of his nieces and nephews but has a BIG soft spot for Brady. Since the two of them live together in Chicago, I could not send one a frame of their “favorite” without sending the other, one too. The frames were inexpensive from JoAnn’s and are floating frames with the pictures (mounted on card stock) and names (stamped with the Skinny Alphabet Photopolymer stamp set) adhered before I sandwiched them between the glass.

Let’s see if Kyle and Michele are following me on Facebook or on the blog to see how quick one of them responds! They are in the mail tomorrow to them in Chicago.

They’re Engaged!

My wonderful nephew Matthew and his fabulous girlfriend (now Fiancee!) Beth got engaged this past weekend in a beautiful vineyard in Nashville, TN. Matthew had both of the families fly down from Michigan to Nashville and totally surprise Beth at the Vineyard after he asked her to marry him! It was fabulous for everyone 🙂 I wanted to make a card to send to them to congratulate them on their engagement and here is the card (and a picture of them celebrating!).

Engagement Congratulations
