Happy Birthday to my oldest son, Daniel!

Boy they grow up so fast don't they?!  He was just born the other day, and then a few days ago he graduated high school.  He got married yesterday and has a baby today.  Where did the time go???????  Well I guess it just seems that fast but it is really heart-wrenching when they leave the nest.  BUT the good part of it all is I got a grand baby out of the deal.  Whoo hoo!!!  He is 6 months old now...oh no! He's doing the same thing...growing too fast!  Yikes!  

Ok Karen Sue pull it together... Well as far as my oldest, his birthday is just two days after mine so we usually celebrate together.  Here are some cards I did for him.  One I did for my Dad to give him and the other for me and hubby to give him.  I think they turned out cute.

Here is the one me and hubby gave him.  This is a Cheery Lynn die. My son loves to hunt deer and ducks so both of these cards were oh so appropriate!

And this is the one I made for my Dad and his wife to give him. The deer are Memory Box I believe. Not sure about the grass though. Sorry.

Here is the video show a little more detail. Enjoy! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Thanks!

Response to Scraplady530 ATC Challenge Giveaway

Yep, another late posting.  So sorry guys.  Scraplady530 was doing an ATC challenge giveaway so I thought I would give it a go.  I sent it off to her before I could get some photos but I did make the video.  And again I used those cute little owls I got at The Dollar Tree.  They are just so darn ka-yute! And I did the back a little different than normal so hope you like it.

Fall Cards

I am a little late posting this but I still wanted to show you some of the fall cards I have been working on.  I think they turned out rather cutsy.  I have grown quite fond of the little owls in this crafting journey I am on and I really found some real cutie patootie ones.  And guess where I found them......The Dollar Tree!!!!  Yep! The Dollar Tree.  Who da thunk it?  Crafting is expensive but not ALL crafting will break the bank.  Hope you like these!

Did a video on these to show more detail.

MayMay Made It Christmas Card Project

MayMay Made It is doing a Christmas Card Mini Album project.  She asked that people send her Christmas cards so she could incorporate them into a mini album.  She did the same thing with some baby shower cards and made them into an album for a friend.  You really need to go to her YouTube channel to see it.  It's wonderful!!! 

Here is my card that I sent her.  I used a PaperTreyInk Stamp and Die set for the focal point and I cannot remember the paper I used. I am so sorry about that.  I should have written it down when I got it. The inside sentiment I believe is also from PTI.  It is either that or Stampin Up.

I was in such a hurry to mail it, I forgot to take pictures but did get a video done.  Oh well.  I hope you like it.  I will be putting more cards on my blog soon.  I have been doing some fall and Christmas cards. Whoo hoo!!

Altered Letters for Grandbaby's Room

I have shared this on my YouTube channel but not here on my blog (so sorry about that). I have "status" videos for my project until it was finished.  But I will show you the finished product below.  If you want to see the status videos you can view them on my YT channel.  I think it came out rather cute.  I followed the "pattern" from the bedding they put in the room.  I just looked it up on Goggle and printed out some pictures to go by.  I then had to size the animals to fit the size of the letters.  Then I printed them out and cut out the figures with a craft knife to create a stencil so I could just paint it on the letters from paper.

I will be doing another video showing it up in the baby's room and also show the baby's room where they painted a mural in it.  It is so stinkin cute!  Let me know what you think about the letters. 

Then here is the video showing the final project.  Thanks for watching and leave me a comment on how you think it turned out.  This is my first time in altering letters, especially trying to make it look like something already created (animals and such).

Wedding Card

I made this wedding card at the crop I went to a couple of weeks ago - Crop Connection Summer 2014.  I put it in the card contest and won second prize!!!  Whoo hoo!  The card that won first was a box pop up card.  It was very cute.  I saw a couple of videos on YouTube that I got the idea from.  The one from The Stamp Camp was easier to follow.  You can click here to see that video. I watched the video twice and did not take notes.  So when I got to the crop I was hoping I could remember how to do it.  Fortunately, the tutorial was so easy to following that it was no problem getting it together.  Here is how it turned out.  Enjoy!
