Birthday Card...

Hello my wonderful friends!

Just got back from our first camping trip of the year.  More of a little get away really.  Our lovely forest that we usually go to is still closed for the winter???  So, we went to a SVRA park (my boys love their motorcycles and quads) instead.  I forgot the camera...duh!?  Sorry no pics.  We got the perfect spot under a huge old shade tree and set up the trailer.  The weather was perfect the whole time.

I was able to catch up on some reading and browse through about 50 old paper crafting magazines (only about 200 more to trip, hehe).  I'm trying to make some more room in the craft room.  :)  So I cut out my favorites for a idea binder and recycled the rest.  It was quite fun to see how far the crafting world has come in the last 10 years.

Last week was one of my really great friends birthday so I made her this card from my Bestie and me.  :)  I know they are mums, but I gave them a spring like feel.  :)  I love to make my own printed papers.

Hello Crafty Friends...

I wanted to try to get something done in time this month for The {Stamps} of Life gallery.  Since I have been so busy I haven't had a chance just to sit down and make some cards for my stash.  :)

I clear embossed the giant mums on yellow cardstock
and then sponged with 3 coordinating colors.
Wiped off excess with paper towel for the
yellow cardstock to pop out from
under the embossing.

Have a GREAT day everyone!

A Krazy Kreation!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am sharing with you a card that I made from a kit I got from Krazy Kreations.  They were doing this demo at the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton when I was there and I immediately had to do it.  Using Copic markers on glitter paper...what?!  Well just not any glitter paper, you have to use this specially made paper, that you make yourself with their products.  It is quite messy (well, for me)  I don't usually do glitter etc.  But when it came to the coloring portion of the project I was ecstatic.  Literally you get a beautiful piece when you are done.  And it was really easy.  Check out their site, she does have a pdf demo.  I much preferred the in person demo better.  You can just see the richness of it all.  Hopefully they will be at your Scrapbook Expo in your area.  Check it out.  Here is my card (there will definitely be more to come...I did get some items not in a kit...imagine that???  hehe)

See what I mean?  :)  And it didn't hurt my Copics at all.  :)

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Now off to make some more.

Here are a couple of Thank You cards I made for my daughters boss and teacher friend who bar tended her 21st Birthday party.  If it weren't for these 2 I don't know how I would have gotten anything done.  They were awesome.  Love these ladies!

21st Birthday Par-tay!

Hello Crafty Friends!

The Birthday girl!
Wow, I can't believe so much time has gone by.  Flew by really.  I have been super super busy with my daughter's 21st birthday celebration, which alas, has come to an end.  :)  What a FABULOUS time had by all.

I have so many people to thank for all their wonderful help.  Even some unexpected help, which was so GREATLY appreciated.  I truly have the most wonderful family and friends.  As does my daughter.

These gals are the BEST!
They work with Chelsea (the one on the right
is her boss)  They totally bar tended for us
all night long.  They were quite the hit as
you could imagine.

Just to share a few things about the was a Texas Holdem cocktail party.  I hired a Texas Holdem dealer (he came complete with official table, cards, chips etc). It was all free to play so it was a High Roller table.  LOL!

My Besties daughter in law, Kristine, (LOVE HER!), made this wonderful cake for us.  We completed it with a drunk Barbie to top it off.  Hilarious.  My daughter and I made her up to look like her, complete with matching tattoos.  I also decorated the cupcake stands.

Chelsea and Kristine
Kristine also cocktail waitressed for us.  All that working  at Macaroni Grill experience!  LOL!  And our very good friends daughter was our hors'douvres server (as well as my SIL and friend)

I also made mustache straws for the cocktails.  They were a hit!  I got the file from Lori Whitlock, which you can find here.  I just added a 1/4" hole to the center and cut on my cutting machine.


We had dancing as well which was soooo much to love those Wii dance games and of course the free styling moves.  LOL!  I never met a dance floor I didn't like!  haha

My hubby
My back, LOL!
Needless to say, it was a FANTASTIC 21st birthday PAR-TAY!, and well, there were a few cocktails involved so today I am finally feeling back to my old self.  hehe

I will share some more in tomorrow's posting.

That Barbie was nothing but trouble...LOL!
