I needed a "Thinking of You" card, so i got out my cute little animals with hearts stamp from Hero Arts. Aren't those little animals cute?! The creative juices were flowing on this one. Also, a little mistake up at the top with my sewing brought on a needed adjustment. So, I sewed ribbon up top on right corner with a button. It gives it some more detail. Anyways, I had fun making this card. Isn't it fun to get out some stamps that you haven't used in awhile? I love heart stamps...they're not just for Valentine's...hehehe. Enjoy and have a great day! And thanks for taking a peek...I love any comments...thank you!

OK, I promised in a previous post that I'd show some vacation pics from Maine and New Hampshire. We had a great vacation! The lobster and clam chowder was delicious and the sites were so so beautiful!!! Ok, have a great day and enjoy!
Hope you all are having a great day! I'm doing a little this and that today. Some cleaning...some crafting. I prefer the crafting, don't you? Anyways, I need a couple of Thinking Of You cards made up, so I thought I'd show ya this one. The inspiration is from the colors at The Color Throwdown challenge this week. Just used items from my stash. Thanks for taking a peek...enjoy your week!

Am back from vacation...sigh...what a piece of heaven that we saw in Maine and New Hampshire! We went to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Maine for a few days. We stayed in N. Conway, NH for the rest of the week and headed for home. Hubby was set on making it home on Sunday night. We left at 5am in the morn and got home that night at 9:30pm...whew...what a long car ride it was to and from...but so so worth it!!! A little piece of heaven we saw and took lots and lots of pictures. I'll have to post a few, but first I want to show my CPS #180 card for this week. Most of the items used on my card were from my stash. The stamp is from Stampin' Up. Hope you all are doing well...have a great week...and thanks for taking a peak!

Shhhh don't tell...I got sidetracked into my craft room when I should be doing my cleaning, laundry, packing...hehehe. I wanted to finish the envelope for my great niece's bday card posted earlier. I looked at my Mom's bingo card and thought hmmmm...I think I'll add a brad and flower to the little red bingo card. What ya think...does it give it more interest?? Ok...work with me here...I'm learning...yes, no? Hehehehe. Any constructive criticism is welcomed here.:-) Anyways, my Mom loves playing bingo, so I thought I'd make up this card for her. I so love that bingo stamp from Papertrey Ink...cute isn't it?! Ok...back to my cleaning, laundry, packing. Am leaving Sunday on vacation for Maine. Hope you are having a great day...enjoy...stop and smell the flowers or coffee whichever you prefer.:-)) Take care! TFL!

We have some new neighbors who just moved in recently. So, I played Betty Crocker today and made some chocolate chip cookies for them. Also, I made a card 'cause...well...I just couldn't resist...hehehe. Don't ya know a card can be made for any occasion...isn't it great?! Back to work for me tomorrow for next two days. I've been able to make several cards lately...so fun! Good thing I'm doing it now 'cause we leave for vacation on Sunday. Not sure how much crafting I'll get done. Am thinking of taking scrapbook/card making items with me. But, oh what to take? Wish I could take everything...hehehe. Ok...I better do some house chores here. Have a great day...enjoy!
Hope you had a great day! I had a great one visiting with my Mom and sis. We had Chinese food for lunch...mmmm...so good. And chinese makes great leftovers 'cause it is so much food to eat. My sis reminded me that my great-niece's bday is soon, so I scooted over to my little crafty corner to make a merry making and whipped up this card. I'm not sure if I had this in mind at first on how it turned out, but it's what I came up with. Practice makes perfect...hehehe...and I love to practice making cards! So, thanks for taking a peek at my bday card for my little niece....take care!
