Happy Father's Day and some other stuff

Happy Father's Day!
I get to spend the day with my dad and here's the card I made for him

Cardstock Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper Glitz, Fancy Pants
Corrugated Paper Fancy Pants
Stickers American Crafts (Flair), Fancy Pants

I used these colors DoBea chose from THIS 365 Cards challenge last week

I was busy crafting for several occasions this week.  Our adorable neighbor turned 1 last week, and we had to celebrate with her.  I created this card for sweet Ensley, whose mom Brittany whipped up a fabulous "under the sea" themed party.

Here's a close-up of the E I created using my Silhouette, which I layered over some corrugated cardstock.
I'm still working on Thank Yous for the teachers at my daughters' elementary school.  I found this roll of gift wrap at Target for $1
Some people might just see wrapping paper, but I saw a fabulous background for my cards

Cardstock Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper Fancy Pants
Stickers SRM Stickers
Other Items Gift Wrap, Felt

And here's a snapshot of my craft room, as I continue to whip it into shape

I need to figure out what to do with all my stamps - time to jump on Pinterest I think!
Have a wonderful week!!!

Celebrating Dad

Just a quickie post here. 
I whipped up this card for my husband to give to my FIL.


Patterned Paper American Crafts
Sticker SRM Stickers
Other Stuff Tag, Alphas, Corrugated Cardboard

Masculine cards are not my thing, but I'm happy with this one.
This one was simple because I need to mail it, but the one I have in mind for my dad is a bit bulkier.  Lucky me, I can't remember a Father's Day that I haven't spent with him, and I truly have the best dad.

Life is Good

That's what this card says

Tape K&Company
Cardstock Bazzill Basics, Papertrey Ink
Jute My Little Yellow Bicycle
Cork My Little Yellow Bicycle

It's Friday, and I'm up at 365 Cards with this color scheme

I love the color scheme, but I wasn't quite sure what to do with it at first.  Then I started digging through my stash and this is what popped out at me.
And life is good as my parents celebrate 44 years of marriage today!

Thank you a zillion ways

I'm talking about several thank you notes I've whipped up for the fabulous teachers and staff at my daughters' school who came out to help at McTeacher Night to raise money for the Boosters.
For a card maker this is a major treat - it's an excuse to make several cards, which use the same batch of crafty supplies all in different ways.
Here's what I'm talking about...

I am going to do another round of cards since I've already given most of the these away.  I will be sure to post those when I'm done.
