Happy November!

Hello my scrappy friends!  What a month this has been for us, just so busy, who's sick, visiting family, Halloween....just so much!  Doesn't look like November will be much different but our Disney vacation begins on Friday....16 hours of driving during two days!  Our kids said NO! to flying since "we talk and laugh so much when we drive down to Disney."  Well, we do, but i was hoping to fly!  They'd really better make me laugh while I'm driving!

On to a card I just made for a co-worker's 40th birthday tomorrow.  She's been going through a rough patch with working 2 jobs, her kids, ex-husband, boyfriend, his's a plate full for her, so I decided to just be nice.  No jokes, I don't think she's in the mood for it.

I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil, mini organic matter mask (love this one!); My Sentiments Exactly, birthdays innies and outies, Cricut; Art Philosophy for the butterfly; SU! ribbon and gems from my stash.  I'll be entering my card into these following challenges.....Be sure to check them out!

The Paper PlayersThe Paper Players - Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge - I used the center column: birthday-die cut/punch-butterfly.

That's all for today!  Happy November, enjoy your extra hour of sleep this coming weekend for daylight savings!

Shoe birthday card

Hello my scrappy friends!  Just a quick post today.  Using my STAMPlorations shoe stamps, sentiment was printed from the internet, I made a card for my sister's birthday.  She is a shoe fanatic!  So many shoes, it's crazy!  Well, maybe it's really not crazy, perhaps its just that I don't have many shoes.  No, I think she has too many and I don't have many at all.  I'm just not a shoe person, never have been, and she has always been.  I think her trait somehow transferred to my daughter...she's 13 and I think has more shoes then I do!  Crazy I say!

So....since my sister loves and has so many shoes, I made her a shoe birthday card!  She LOVED it!  Her husband apparently "died" laughing when she opened it!  He feels and same way I do with shoes!

I used a STAMPlorations stencil, Crisscrossed, and stamp set, Groovy Shoes.  White and green paper from my stash, colored in the shoes with my colored pencils, and Zig marker for the dashed lines on the sides of the card.

I'll be entering my card into the following challenge:

Hello once again my scrappy friends!  A layout of my son's first start of kindergarten.  He started very early, he was the youngest in his class.  We knew we would be moving so we took him out and started in our new town, where he just started high school, the following year.  A great decision!
