What a Graduate Wants....

It's the big weekend for Graduations around here:) It is a special year for us as our neice is graduationg! We decided to give her a Vera Bradley ID/change clippie and then I couldn't resist making her something to hold what she really wanted..........................MONEY!

She is not a girlie girl so I tried to stay away from frills. I love it and can see lots of these in the future for gifts;)

Enjoy your long weekend!

Happy Retirement

I made this for a retirement gift for a special teacher. She loves soft peppermints so I thought I would inclue those in this special little jar. I hope she likes it.
Let me know what you think!

Happy Birthday, Ella

I can't believe my neice turns 1 in a couple days! I needed to make her a card to send to her. We will be visiting her soon but wanted her to have something special for her day. I think it turned out cute! I used one of her snap shots from when she was born:)

Enjoy your Sunday!

I've been very busy this week ending out the school year! Students finished yesterday and now I'll be finishing up records this next week. It feels good to get to make a card today! I used Jen's Sketch, and rotated it a bit and here's what I created. Enjoy!

Jen's sketch this week,, sort of intimidated me a bit until I dug into my paper stash!!! I found the perfect papers and even made my OWN paper rosettes!!! I made this for a special teacher that is retiring in a few days!! I know she's going to love it! Maybe she can frame it as a keepsake:)

Hope you have a great Saturday!

Congrats, Graduate

Our neice will be graduating soon and I just couldn't resist another MFT Pure Innocence... I went digital with these so I can print, print, and print them over and over again! More bang for the buck:)

I wish I could keep this one!!

Happy Everything

I love MFT Pure Innocence stamps and wish I could have them all. I found them digitally on etsy,, and went to her sale and got some great deals..... I used one of them on this card. I paired a sentiment from Studio G Wood Stamps with it!! I think it turned out cute. For some reason I couldn't get the bright spot off the ribbon...Crazy camera!!!

I hope you have a happy day!

You're the Best...Teacher

Still trying to add some teacher thank you's to my stash of cards. After seeing all the wonderful ways to use ribbon on a blog tour I knew I wanted to use some sort of ribbon on my teacher card. I used Taylor's sketch here, to get my creative bug going. Once I started it just all fell into place:)

Thanks for visiting and come again soon!

Funky Hi Card

As is a larger card featuring Pinkalicious wrinkle ribbon!!!! It is so scrumptious, yummy, and oh so fun to work with..

I added the pop of green with chipboard lime green letters that I distressed a little and a little lime green glitter to the ribbon. Not much though...

Have a happy Saturday and enjoy the beautiful sunshine!
