Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hi, friends!

How are you on this fine Monday afternoon?  I was just outside with our dog and felt the warm sun and saw the beginning signs of spring!  I saw my first robin today, too!  We really didn't have a rough winter at all, especially with the snow.  We just had a some crazy weather last month with fog, ice, and very cold temps.  Anyways, I am feeling happy that spring is right around the corner!

Today, I'd like to share with you a couple St. Patrick's Day cards that I made for my hubby and son.  The above card is for hubby and I had a lot of fun using Waffle Flower stamps and dies.  Isn't that little smiling leprechaun the cutest?!  I combined the stamp set that was released last month along with the new one for this month to go with the postage die, so fun!  I gold embossed the images and colored with copics.  My hubby is part Irish and loves green, so I'm thinking he'll like this card!

Next up, a card for my son using some of the same Waffle Flower products.  

 I did change it up and used the shamrock background die.  I love how the shamrocks cut out with dimension.  I showed hubby the card and he thought something was wrong with it.  Maybe it's a good thing I didn't use it for his card, lol!  I colored more rainbows on this card and added the same cute leprechaun.

Ok, that's all for now.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Take care and have a wonderful week!

Thinking of you...

Hi, there!

Another flower card to share with you today, but one with tulips!  My mind is thinking spring, how about you?  I can hardly wait until my tulips and daffodils bloom.  The tulips image is from Sweet 'n Sassy.  It was gold embossed and colored with copics.  The sentiment is from Paper Sweeties.  A bow and sequins added to finish the card.

Did you happen to watch the super bowl game yesterday?  What a game!  It certainly was a nail biter!  I was rooting for the underdog, the Chiefs.  Hubby was rooting for the 49ers since they had a couple players who played for Ohio State.  

We haven't cleared the craft room out yet.  I think we will leave this room for last.  They will carpet the other two bedrooms first.  We still have to decide on what carpet we want.  The lady comes to measure the rooms on Thursday,  so we need to decide soon.  I changed my mind on the one I wanted for I felt it was too light.  

Well, I'll close here for now.  I finished a St. Pat's Day card, but will post that later.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Take care!

Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

I hope you are having a great weekend!  I'm popping in quick to share with you a birthday card I made for a friend.  The rose die cut is from Elizabeth Craft Designs and the sentiment is from SSS.  

Not much else is going on around here.  I was busy this week and last week with our son and his dog being here.  I felt bad that he drove 2 1/2 hours for a competition that was cancelled at Bowling Green University both weeks.  A former teacher asked him to help judge.  It will be rescheduled, but not until March.  It was cancelled due to fog.  But, it was great to see him and we had a nice dinner out one night!  We had all kinds of weather last month, but we are to get warmer temps and some sunshine soon, yeah!

We looked for carpet the other day and hope to make a decision soon.  We have a sample that will be mailed to us.  I really don't like the thought of packing everything up in the craft room, but it will be great once it's all done!

Ok, that's all for now.  Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
