Happy Birthday Mom!

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world

 someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.” ~ Tom Bodett

Good morning Everyone!
Today is my Mom's 79th Birthday!
I took her to dinner Friday night to celebrate and spend the evening with her.

This is the 5 x 7 card I made or her based on the sketch below using some of the goodies I received from my friend Sandra who lives in the Netherlands!
I distressed and inked the edges to give it a more vintage feel.

This sketch was found on Pinterest but tracked down to HERE

No one Like You ...

Be mindful of your self-talk; it’s a conversation with the universe. David James Lees

Good morning Crafty Peeps.
Today starts a new Clean and Simple Challenge at The Outlawz

The challenge this week is to use a technique or tool that you have been wanting to try or haven't used in a long time.

Here is my A2 card.
I recently purchased a "bow" die by Tim Holtz Alterations / Sizzix and wanted to try it out. Along the way, the card evolved into a shaker card, which I have not made in a very long time.

Happy Cake Day

Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again. ~Menachem Mendel Schneerson

Good morning!

Today is the birthday of a co-worker whom my husband and I have know for close to 30 years!
I made this card for and let me tell you I was not happy with the first results.

I was using a DP that I just purchased from a company by the name of Momento (I have to say, so far none of their paper, stamps or dies impress me due to questionable quality) Anyway ... I thought, at first it might be my glue until I ran into warping problems with another card I made using the same paper pack.

Anyway, I had to do some creative bending to get this to look half way decent and I had to replace some of the paper elements damaged in the process.
So here is the card after it's minor make over....
