Thank You So Much

Hi there!  Just a quick share with you today of some thank you's I made for Lexi's Baptism.  I usually get overwhelmed at the thought of making a bunch of the same card design, so I just give in and buy a pack of cards (which I always feel guilty about), but not this time.  I had these wallet size photos printed of Lexi and I was determined to use them. And I have to say, I really loved making these.  It went so fast once I figured out the design.

I created the sentiment myself and just printed it off...I love doing this! :)  I used two different stamps for the background...I did half with the Hero Arts Flourish Background and the other half with the Hero Arts Circle Pattern.  The flower was created using some yummy felt I bought from Janet's Etsy shop, Felt on the Fly.   She has amazing customer service and the 100% wool felt comes in so many different gorgeous colors.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday!  What a long week...so glad the weekend is almost here.  We don't have anything planned for the whole entire weekend...and I love it!  Hoping to get lots of crafty time in. :)

This week I've been busy over at the Hero Arts Blog sharing some amazing creations made by the girls on the Hero Arts Designer Team.  The focus has been all about making your own embellishments and today I shared my project.  I created some layered embellishments using handmade stamped buttons. I'm really starting to love button making...the possibilities are endless to the kinds of buttons you can make!  And Halle, my 5 yr. old daughter, loves to sit down and make her own buttons right alongside me.  I love that it is something we can do together.

Here's the embellishments I made...

And if you want to see the set of cards I made using some of these embellishments, check them out here on the Hero Arts Blog.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Christmas Tags

Hi there!  It's time for another challenge at Caardvarks.  I just love the theme this time...tags and minis!  The sponsor is JustRite Stampers and they sent us some fun Christmas stamps to play with. 

Here's what I created:

Hope you get a chance to play along...you'll have a chance to win some new JustRite stamps!

Have a great day!
