Delightful Dahlia Goodness..

PapertreyMay 003 

Morning ya'll! I'm baaaack! Things here are so very hectic for us. I have been feverishly working on my halloween treats for the kids so I haven't had time to craft much. Between that and the other million things I need to get done I am swamped! My youngest has drill competition this Saturday. I am planning a farewell dinner for the following Saturday. I have a ton of meetings and on top of all that we are making the transition from Active Duty Military to retirees this Sunday! These are just a few of the things on my to do list! But I knew I hadn't posted in a while and wanted to check in with all my blogging friends. I am posting a card I made a while back with the delightful dahlia set from Papertrey a while back. I am still refining my copic skills but I do love them and am hoping to substantially increase my copic numbers this holiday season! LOL! The sentiment is also another Papertrey set called Around and About (I believe) I used my score pal to add the diagonal accent lines and my stickles and stampin up punch to embellish. I hope you like the simplicity and the colors and that this card inspires you to do something creative today.

Brooklyn's Notes..

This is one of the last items I put in my little niece's Baby Memories Can. Of course you know that I had to slip this gorgeous Stampin Bella girl in there. It's a covered notepad that she can use for recording babies milestones. Being a busy young mom she needs all the shortcuts she can get. This Paint Can idea and the gifties for inside the can CampSummer2010 108make it so much easier to keep up with the baby's quick development. I hope it inspires you to do something creative today.

Gift for a friend....

Archbishop 008

Here are the cards I made to go inside the cute purse I posted last. The DP is from Hobby Lobby and the rest of the cardstock is Papertrey and Stampin' Up! Like I've said before we army wives love us some red, white and blue. Even though DH is almost officially retired I am, and always will count myself among the ranks of some of the best and brightest, strongest and softest, kindest and toughest women around. ARMY WIVES! HOOAH Ladies I LOVE all my Army Sisters! I hope this project inspires you to do something creative today.

Patriotic Purse....

Archbishop 006

I purchased these awesome templates from Becky Roberts and I created this for my good friend.

As Army wives we tend to gravitate towards the Americana look. So I created this one out of

one of my favorite Americana papers out there right now. I filled the purse with some cute

personalized note cards and envelopes. while I am not skilled at creating templates I think I did

pretty well following one.. LOL.. I would recommend that you use ribbon instead of paper for

the handles though. I hope this inspires you to do something outside of your comfort zone.

Patriotic Colors for a Computer Heart....

A very dear friend recently started a new job and I created these cutsie bella cards for her along with a few other things to keep on her desk to jot a little note. She is, I am certain, going to wow them with her smarts and skills. Have I told you all before about what a lucky gal I am to be surrounded by a large body of women who a a blessing and bring joy to my life. I hope she liked them. Let me know what you all think??? Can a girl get some comment love???

HOOAH Bella!

SeptCrafts 002
Isn't she the absolute cutest? I created a notepad for myself and three other mom's who are part of the JROTC Parent Booster Club at my son's high school. It was a little something nice I wanted to do for the ladies who stepped up to the plate to help our Battalion in the huge undertaking of raising so much money to defray costs for the kids activities. With such a large group of children we don't have enough funding in the budget to allow the children to participate in much of anything by having a Booster group we are able to relieve the pressure off of the instructors and assist in funding the activities our cadets earn the right to participate in and these ladies are generous enough with themselves, their time and their resources to allow us to proceed. I am thrilled to be working with all of them. The notepad is a Steno sized notepad. The image is of course a Bella that was paper pieced with camo paper. The ribbon I found on sale at Wal-Mart. The pearls were added as a little feminine touch to an overall masculine look. The sentiment is one of my favorites from Papertrey Ink's Taking Note Set. I hope she inspires you to do something creative today. If you have any questions email me..
