Red White and Blue

I finished up my 12 x 12 sampler just in time for Memorial Day.
I did every square in red, white and blue so that I can put it out for not just Memorial Day, but for July 4th and Labor Day.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
Thanks to all who have served our country and continue to do so!

Sweet treats

How fun are these peppermint treats. 
You could send one to a friend or family member and what a sweet Hello it would be.

These would look good for your graduation party...a little treat for everyone to take home.

Hello Lovely

This simple and beautiful Mother's Day card was made using the "hello lovely" stamp set from Concord and 9th. It pairs well with the free set I posted about a few days ago. 
Just lovely!

Stamp room

Last week I found a deal of the century.
I had a Martha Stewart cubby shelf I had bought years ago...the one on the left. I found the one on the right for $10 at a little store in my town. Look how awesome it looks next to my other one. Still working on filling the cubbies.

I did a little rearranging of my stamp room and am loving the new shelf.

This simple yet "lovely" card was made using a free stamp set I received from Concord and 9th.
Look how beautiful this card turned out...with just a hint of color.

Water Color Class

Sylvia's water color card class was awesome! We learned many things about water coloring...and put them to use. With the cost of the class...water color pencils, a blender pen, water color paper, and a sample paper pack was provided. Sylvia then went the extra mile and made us a case to put the pencils and blender in so we can take them with us anytime...anywhere. Thank you Sylvia for a great card class. We made 6 cards and a treat bag. 

Love this manly treat bag.

Our water color pencils and case. Sylvia made the color chart for us too.

Our water color paper  and our paper pack along with some water color tips. was an awesome class...thank you Sylvia!

Plant stand

Emily saw an idea on Pinterest and new she wanted to create one herself.
She cut and sanded her 5 foot boards...a woman and her power tools! Then picked her paint color.

Next she and her Dad found some cement block laying round the farm and cleaned them up and she spray painted them burnt orange.

Let's just say....job well done Emily!
She had a great time flower pot off to get flowers...can't wait to see it with all her pretty flowers growing.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the heart is a punch.
Sweet treat for anyone who's special.

These chocolate squares are so pretty covered in this pattern paper.
The sentiment is something I had in my stash and the paper is from Taylored Expressions.
Too pretty to open and eat.

Craft Club

After a long winter's nap our stamp club gone craft club got together once again. We had so much fun creating our birthday themed cards. Each person was to bring "shoebox" supplies for each of us to make two cards. The theme was birthday and we went home with quite the selection of cards. Thanks to Shari, Colleen, and Casey and myself. Regina and Karen, missed you at craft club hope to see you at the next one!

Our beautiful selection of birthday cards we all took home!!

Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Easter Decor

I can't believe I did not post this beautiful Easter decoration my sister made for me this year.
She covered the wooden bunny with cardstock and then created the beautiful flowers to deocrate it. She used Concord and 9th's sophisticated scrip to  stamp the sentiment.

It is just so lovely! 
Thank you Shari for another beautiful creation.

Here is a close up of the beautiful flowers she created. 
I am always in awe of her talent.

She even finished off the edge with a pretty punched border.

Sweet Treat

Sorry for the late posting... 
I found this cute egg candy dish at TJ Maxx for my friend Karen.
I filled it with rolos and added a cute tag from the bunny die amuse studio had in last month's collection. The sentiment is an old wood block in my stash.
