Happy Father's Day

For my dad, my husband's dad, and my grandfathers I made mustache cards.  I went so simple on these it was almost too easy.  I found mustache stickers on my last scrap shopping, I used the best ones for the three cards.  I printed out the saying "I mustache you a question..." for the outside of the card. 

On the inside I put "Did you know you are an amazing father!?!"  Or grand father, depending on the recipient :)  Each father opened the card separately, and each one the joke was definitely not lost on any of them.  I love making the men in my life laugh :)  Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there!!

Graduation Cards

I had fun making these grad cards the other night.  I have to squeeze in the scrappy/card time when I can, and luckily these turned out well (1:00am crafting doesn't always go according to plan). For the first two cards I used the stamp that I put together the other day for the graduation announcements that I made.  I figured I'd get the most out of it :)  

 Recipe: Star brads, hunter green ribbon scrap, silver sticker numbers, white cardstock(stamped on), black cardstock(overlay), beige cardstock(base), silver ink.
 Recipe: Black circle brad, white cardstock(stamped on), gold cardstock(ovrelay), black cardstock(card base), salmonish polka dot ribbon, black sticker numbers, cuttlebug, cuttlebug folder 'traffic'
Recipe: White cardstock(stamped on), silver cardstock(overlay), black cardstock(card base), transparent ribbon scrap, silver sticker numbers, cuttlebug, cuttlebug folder 'divine swirl'

I think they all turned out great and I'm so proud of the grads they are going to :)

Graduation Time is Upon Us

A good friend and past colleague of mine commissioned me to design and create a set of graduation announcements for her son.  He graduates tonight and his school colors are hunter green and silver.  This is what I came up with...I used my cuttlebug, 5 different stamps, white and silver ink and 5x7 card bases.

I think they turned out great!  We met this morning over coffee and she loved them :)  It feels good to succeed at something you love to do!

What have I been up to...

I'd like to say I've been busy working on cards and scrapbooking,  but the truth is I barely have time to take care of my self these past months, let alone get any fun time in.  I did recently get a manicure and pedicure, thanks to Mother's Day and my Anniversary being in May :)  However, the fun I speak of would include a weekend away with my scrappy buddies (you know who you are).  In the recent past I was able to make a year's supply of birthday cards for my grandfather to give out to his sons, daughters, sons and daughters in law and grandkids...that was fun!  Here are some of the finished products:
One day I'll figure out how to organize photos on a post :)
