You Rock Shaker Card

I need to say thank you to a few of my teacher friends who put up with my ranting and raving way more often than I'm sure they would like.  Here is a card using sentiments from Paper Smooches.

I repeated the "YOU ROCK" from Sentiment Sampler and stamped "friend" inside the shaker. There is a fair bit of static happening inside that acrylic shaker window, but it is pretty and sparkly so I guess it works.  

I will be linking this to the SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks, Friend

Just a quick post on a beautiful Saturday morning. I may do nothing but sit on my backporch and watch the birds eat my grass seed!


Made this with my new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I used Color Box chalk inks and a SU background stamp.

I'm linking this up with the Lawnscaping Challenge HERE.  

Have a nice day!

I Love You Monkey

Here's another birthday card I made today.  

I used the Paper Smooches set, Love Monkey.  This is the first time I've used this set.  I can see lots of cute possibilities! 

I am entering this in the SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge HERE.  I love looking at all the wonderfully creative entries on these challenges!!

Have a great Saturday!

........I guess, while I'm at it, I'll also link up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge HERE, too!

Happy Saturday!  
It was a long week and I'm happy to be having a little crafty time.  Here is a birthday card I made for my niece. 

Today is her birthday, so I guess by the time she gets it this will be a 'belated' card.  Sigh. What do they say about good intentions?

Happy birthday, Rhyan!  We love you!!!
