Hey Buddy, Happy Birthday!

How about a boy card for ya today. I have to say, I hate making masculine cards, but if they are for young boys, it isn't so bad. You can get a little fun and cutesy with them which makes it all the better to create.

I am using a THIS fun stamp set from Papertrey Ink. What little boy doesn't like airplanes. I could get a lot of use out of this stamp set. And with this stamp set you get the choice of coloring an airplane image or go with the solid one. Love options.

Have a wonderful, warm week!!

Love-Hate Relationship

Hi everyone. I don't know how to apologize for not posting for the last 3-4 weeks. I have been having a love-hate relationship with my computer lately. I love all the vast knowledge a computer can give me, but I have been hating spending too much time on the computer lately. I only seem to get on to check a few sites and then I am off. I will do my best to try an post more crafty things for you, but they may be short and sweet. But we all know, it is really the pics we are all interested in, not my babbling. (wink, wink) :o)

Here is a card I created for the most recent CARDS October calls. And since I am posting this here, it wasn't picked up. The call was to use die cuts. And I used two different ones on this card. First is the die cut label by Collage Press and second is the chair which was die cut from one of the new Papertrey Ink dies. LOVE how it turned out on felt.
