Some things to share...

The other day I got a few hours for myself and was able to do some scrapbooking! I did 3 layouts! Woohoo! Take a look:

Here's my baby girl, Jaz! One of her nicknames is Jazi! I'm not too crazy about how my cutting turned out (need a new pair of scissors) but oh well, it done! I used some very old papers from Tinkering Ink for this layout! Still love them though.

Here's Jeremy with his Godparents this past Easter!

And he's my oldest, Daniel, enjoying the Easter Egg Hunt. He's funny! At first, he said he wasn't going to partake but after seeing all the eggs scattered in the lawn and knowing they were filled with lots of goodies, he grabbed a plastic bag from the kitchen and a huntin' he went! LOL!

Oh, and I was able to finish up my Father's Day card for my husband. I decided to go with a different color than the ones used on my other cards. The brown was getting a little boring! LOL! It's simple but I like the way it turned out.

Stamp Sets: SU! All Holidays
Paper: SU! Cardstock (Whisper White), Chatterbox PP
Inks: SU! Not Quite Navy & Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: SU! Ribbon (Bashful Blue), Pop Dots

I know I'm a bit late, but I hope all my "daddy" friends had a wonderful Father's Day! I am truly blessed for the men God has put in my life! I have the best dad evah! Til this day, he still spoils me! And my kids can not ask for a better dad! We're so blessed!

Enjoy the rest of the week! It is really, really hot here!! Unless I'm near water, I do not venture outside too much! LOL!

God Bless!

Another Father's Day Card

I feel so honored that people have asked to buy my cards! How cool is that?! Well, the bad side to that was that when I went to send out a card to my own dad, I didn't have any! LOL! So I put a quick card together last night and now I have to make one more for my husband! hehe! That'll teach me! Next time I better pull mine to the side! LOL! Here's a card I created last night using this week's sketch from Taylored Expressions.

Stamp Sets: SU! All Holidays
Paper: SU! Cardstock (Chocolate Chip), Chatterbox PP
Accessories: SU! Ribbon (Bashful Blue), Buttons, Floss
Tools: SU! Scalloped Edge Punch (LOVE THIS THING!!!)

So, can you tell my fav color from SU! is Chocolate Chip!! I love it!! Well, I was going to attempt that second card tonight but I think I want to curl up with a magazine instead! Hope everyone is having a wonderful and, most importantly, BLESSED week!!

God Bless You!
