Recipe:
Paper: Stampin Up, Bo Bunny, American Crafts

So pull out all your old stamps or stickers that are collecting dust and create something fantastic with this sketch!  Then head over to Emma's to see what her other designers created! 

Thanks again to Emma for the fun!

Home Decor Project!

Hello!

 Today's project it super quick and easy!  Your not going to believe this, but I didn't use my cricut or stamp anything!  While walking through Target, I spotted this candle crock with an ugly label on it ( I should have taken a pic of it).  As soon as I saw it I knew what I was going to do with it!

Isn't that the cutest!  Now this sits on my shelf in my "Paper Loft"!  I used EAD Design's Vintage Rub-ons!  I know, I already told you how much I love these, but I have to say it again! 
I just love these rub-ons!


Don't forget EAD Designs steal of the month!


Before I go I wanted to thank Esther at For the Joy of Creating for giving me an award!

Now I have to confess, I'm not good at giving awards.  I can't possibly pick just 15 blog buddies to give this to!  Have you seen how many fabulous blogs I follow?!  So here are the rules.  If you are willing to participate you can grab it from me and carry on!
The rules to this award are:
1.) Thank the person who gave it to you
2.) Tell 7 things about yourself
3.) Send it to 15 other bloggers

7 things about me:
1. I'm a Christian (serious stuff first)
2. This year I will be celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary
3. I have 2 beautiful girls (who doesn't think their children are beautiful!)
4. I usually wear something black everyday
5. I love the beach
6. I rearrange my furniture alot, so I get the feeling of moving to a new house
7. I now realize that I don't need every product out there to make one card or scrapbook page (but it's fun to collect!)

I'll be back tomorrow with a special surprise!

Enjoy!

Thinking of You! Card

Hi!

How's your week going so far?  I had a little extra time, so I entered a challenge...and I think sketch challenges are the best! I used Mojo Monday Sketch #184 and  EAD Design rub-ons for the focal point.  I can't believe that in all the years I've been papercrafting, that I have just come to know them.  I think I tried them in the past, but they weren't like EAD Design's or I would have never stopped using them!  These are so easy to use too!  So let's get to it...

I wish you could see how pretty the black flower is!  Sorry the lighting is bad!


Recipe:
Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite Cartridge
two scalloped circles 5.68 x 5.47 each welded together
circle cut 4.84 x 6.80
Paper: Teresa Collins, American Crafts cardstock, Stampin Up
butterfly, rhinestone

If you like today's card, you will love what I made for tomorrows project with the Vintage Rub-ons!
And don't forget that EAD Designs steal of the month is still available!

Enjoy!
