Another birthday

My brother in law's birthday is coming soon.  I find it hard to make masculine cards since I like flowers, pinks and purples.  I decided to copy the hand doodle I made a while ago and cut it into pieces for cards.  This card was crazy easy and great for a man.

Clean and simple!

2012 Coaster Calendar

I barely finished this before end of 3rd quarter - don't want to rush into anything!

Since I'm currently unemployed and don't need a desk calendar I made this one for a friend and former co-worker.  I hope she enjoys it!

Two Sisters

My sister, Peg, has been bitten by the crafter bug.  She started with emboss resist on frames and can't stop!  I love it! :)

We're going to participate in our first craft fair this Saturday - a little scary and quite exciting!

My baby's turning 26

I'm having a moment and can't quite believe my baby's turning 26 tomorrow. Where did the time go?  We're celebrating his birthday tonight with a family dinner at his favorite restaurant.

I made a quick and easy card for him.  Though he says all the right thing to support his mom, he really doesn't know the difference between my cards and the ones you buy at the store....bless his lil heart!

Christmas Cards`

I truly can't believe we're already into October and I'm feeling a little unsettled because I haven't got a clue what I want to do for cards this year.

I've notice a lot of other bloggers either have their cards done or designed already and, thankfully, their posts have given me a bit of inspiration.  I dabbled today and I think I came up with something!  I needed a design that would be fairly easy to do in batches.

Simple, easy and a great way to use bits of leftovers.  The heart on this one is flat and will be perfect for mailing but I think I'll have to pop up the heart on a few just for fun.

My hand

Ok, I'll call myself out ~ I'm not a good blogger.  I'd rather read everyone else's blog than put myself out there.  I follow a ridiculous amount of blogs and spend hours every day looking at amazing art created by amazing people....and pinning on Pinterest.  I've done a little creating and taken a few pictures but what I've done doesn't quite measure up - says the bad, little voice in my head.

That being said, one of my recent obsessions has been with doodles and zentangles.  I like the freedom, I like the black/white, I like the fact that there really aren't any rules.  I decided to try my hand at it....really my hand.
Not too bad for a first attempt, if I must say so myself :)

Quick and easy

Gotta love a quick and easy project!
The bee image came from The Graphics Fairy.  If you're not already a follower or regular visitor, you NEED to check out her amazing collection of images!  I printed on a vintage book page from my stash and used a Tim Holtz stamp for saying.

The frame was on clearance at Walmart for .25 and I'm kicking myself for not buying more than 4!  The mat was white, I Glimmer Misted and stamped the border.

I love the way this turned out and am sure I'll do a few more!

UPDATED to add that I've linked this project up with:
Graphics Fairy Brag Monday and Sunday Stampers Wing challenge.
