Jazzy Paper Designs #1 and a prize Give Away!

Hello! Happy Saturday to you. Here is my card for Jazzy Designs very first challenge! This is a color challenge based on the album cover shown above. We (Jazzy Designs) have a fresh new look and DT! I am so excited to be a part of Tenia's first challenge!

The sweet love bird stamp I have used is a Digi Stamp from Soft Pencil Digi Stamps. They have a great selection well worth checking out! They are also giving away $15 credit for the lucky winner of the challenge to spend at the SoftPencil Store!

And the smaller stamp is from Stampin Up! figures of speech. I've colored my love birds with Copic Markers. I used Spellbinders die cuts for the oval and circle punch. And then some little black brads to finish it off.

hey, thanks for stopping by. have a great day!

Baby Announcement for my Grandson

My first grandbaby was born on November 13th 2009, a baby boy, named Tanner. He's such a doll!! Just look at that picture! I made baby announcements for his parents about a month ago, and I am finally posting them. They put his picture on the inside with his birth data. I got the idea from Paper Crafts Magazine. Enjoy!


Charisma Cardz Challenge~Get well card for my Niece

Here's a fun card that I made for little niece, Emmie. She had open heart surgery last week. She is doing well.
The Charisma Cardz Challenge is to use something new. Well my balloon punch is new and this is the first time that I have used it! I hope that qualifies.
The idea and tutorial for the card can be found here: Valita's Fresh Folds

This is such a fun card. I'm going to make more! And perhaps use flowers or hearts.

Have a good day!

I {heart} to stamp challenge

I've made this card for three challenges. Jen Del Muro's sketch challenge (with a possible $200 prize!!), Our Daily Bread: Hearts challenge, and the ABC Challenge: N is for new. (used my new Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant)

The heart and sentiment are freebies from Simple Doodles.
Notice the white in the background? It's the Colorado snow! My sister-in-law made the little note in the snow on the railing before I took the picture of my card.
Thank you for stopping by today.

I did a recent photo shoot with my little guy, Remmi. He is so photogenic and I love his smile! He is wearing his Dad's hat. He turned 8 on December 27th.


My new Grandson

I just have to post pictures of my beautiful grandson Tanner! He was born on November 13th in Dallas, TX. My husband, son and I went out there for 4 glorious days to meet him. He is so so so cute and precious. I miss him so much. He has already changed so much! Enjoy.

Christmas card 2009

I didn't make many Christmas cards this past year, but here's one.

Some pics of the Baby Shower

Here are some pics of the shower I hosted for my friend. I made a diaper cake, cute, huh? Using some of the same pattern paper I used to make the announcements, I made a ribbon around some candles as a party favor. I also made a set of thank you cards for the Mommy using the same baby carriage themes. My daughter, Kelsey, made the cupcakes for me. Aren't they great? And the last picture is of myself and the sweet little baby.
