These cards were made for a friend. Each card contains a Bible verse of encouragement or inspiration. She wanted them for a sick friend. All the Bible verses were typed on my computer and printed on cardstock. Then punched out. There's some primas and Mike's ribbon. The printed paper is from my LSS. Stamps were SU and ink was Close to Cocoa.

This set was made for a customer who wanted a little variety. I used various printed papers from my LSS. Stamps used were from Papertrey, Mike's $1 Spot and of course the Bellas. Special tools were my Scalloped punches and my SU slot punch. The little sayings were one's I typed up on my computer and and printed on Papertrey cardstock.

How cute is he!!!

This is Georgie. He is our youngest son. He is so small and has springs for feet so he can get anywhere. He is just a doll and I love him! I found him on my bed like this When I got out of the shower the other morning. Thought I would share his cuteness with you. Have a blessed day.

Custom Notecards

These are personalized notecards created for several of my customers. They really love these. I love to give these as gifts also. I think a set makes a really nice gift for anyone from a teenage girl to a grandma. The printed papers are SU and Making Memories Cosmopolitan collection. The CS is CM, papertrey, and LSS. I used the large scalloped rectangle punch and my cricut to make the monogram. Stamps are SU and papertrey.

Christmas in August

I can't believe that there are 4 short months til Christmas. I am trying to get a jump on things and be ahead of the game. So I have started making sets of Christmas Cards. Let me know what you think. The CS is CM, SU and LSS. Printed Paper LSS. Stamps SU, Stamping Bella, Michaels, LSS. The large santa is a sizzix diecut. The tiny tags I made on my computer and printed on papertrey CS and cut out with scalloped and slot punches. There are also touches of glitter and primas sprinkled in these sets. The Santa got his dimension from puffy paint. I love the splashes of glitter on his beard. It helps it to stand out more.

How time flies..

I can't believe it!!! My oldest is 16 years old. ( had him when I was 12 HA HA) My goodness I feel like life flies by and I can just hang on and barely keep up. I most feel like this when I look at my sons. I can't tell you how many times I thought man I can wait until the terrible twos are over and then the trying three's, flabbergasting fours ect.. you get my drift. Now I find myself wondering when the moody teen years will pass. But it hit me the other day... in just two short years this child of mine will be; according to our laws; a man and old enough to lay down his life for our country and I find myself wishing for those terrible two and trying three's just to be able to hold on to him and keep him safe. My husband has a few years until retirement and I can't imagine the fear that will grip me if one of my sons joins the military. You spend so many years (their whole life) protecting them and keeping them out of harms way then you have to let them go out into the world to make their way. Don't get me wrong the Army has been good to us. It's given us a great life. I am so proud of my husband and all Soldier's and I know that they are all someone's baby. But the thought of MY babies making that same sacrifice strikes fear in my core. My husband always said he fought in the hope that our sons would never have to, unfortunately like many generations before ours this is not going to be the reality. So hang on ladies.. We are raising the next generation of leaders. Hopefully they will do better than we did and bring peace to our troubled world.

Wedding thank yous

These are one of three sets that I made for my mom whose friend has a daughter getting married. Her colors are lavender and chocolate. My mom wanted some thank you notes to give as part of her gift. I made them in sets of six with envelopes in one of the papertrey clear boxes. Hopefully she loves them. The printed paper is from my LSS and the CS is CM, SU and LSS. Tools were scalloped punches Stamps were SU and papertrey.

Thank You

I made this as a thank you to a friend who has been helping me put myself out there. She was the one who convinced me that my cards we a product people would be interested. She is a lifelong friend and has always been there for me. I feel so very lucky that she and I are friends.. The paper is LSS the image is stamping bella. The saying is papertrey. Hand colored with ZIG markers.

I'm back

Hey ya'll,

I'm back!! Between card orders and celebrating my 37th birthday things have been crazy. My birthday was a blast and I am dying to get the bellas I got for my birthday inked up. Hopefully this week will find me a few spare moments to do some stamping for me. I am so thankful to be where I am in my life and for the family that I have supporting me. I am so not worrying about the number but am too busy counting how many blessings have been bestowed upon me. HOW LUCKY I AM!!!! Wishing you all a very blessed day..

Much Aloha,


My Favorite

I think that this has to be one of my favorites. I just love these bright summery colors and the paisley is an even bigger bonus. If you haven't guessed it already I am a total girly girl.

Another set

I made this set for another customer. I have so much fun playing with color and images while making these.
