I've been busy making cards again.....

I got these adorable bee graphics from Mary Fran at Nitwit Collections this week during her spring clearance sale and I couldn't wait to make some cards with them. Aren't they just Bee-utiful!

I also got these Happy Birthday graphics from Nitwits but I couldn't decide if I liked the green matte or the purple so I just made 2 cards.

Then I made this little 3X3 card from the same graphics package. It will be perfect to put on the outside of a package.

Then when I was thru shopping at Nitwits, I headed over to my friend Carmen's site at Shweet Potato Designs and picked up these cuties... I have printed out some tags to add to the front of the graduation cards to say "class of 2010".

Now I'm off to add these to my Etsy shop. You are welcome to stop by there for a visit too! Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today!

Today I'm sharing some Easter Crafts....

A few years back my mother made me the cutest little bunny rabbit pin for Easter. I thought it was so cute I would use the same bunny to make some napkin rings. As I was taking a picture of them I decided to jazz it up a bit with a few plastic eggs and discovered that they also made really cute Easter egg holders. I just love the little wiggly eyes!

And for Easter you definitely need bunnies and chicks for your Easter baskets! Here are a few I made this year with ideas I found around the internet although I don't remember where I first saw them. First is the popular triangle box made into a bunny and a chick.....

Then peppermint patty bunnies and chicks.....

And last but not least are the Candy Bar Sliders......

Thanks to Cheryl Seslar Designs, Shweet Potato Designs and Whimsy Primsy for the graphics used in these projects.
As always, thanks for stopping by my blog.

I'm back with more wedding crafts to show you....

Here are my Bride & Groom Candy Bar Sliders I made from Cheryl Seslar's graphics. I like making the sliders better than wrappers. I think they turned out cute! I cut out an additional picture of the upper part of the bride and then layered a piece of tulle behind it so she looks like she has a real veil. I also cut an additional jacket for the groom and used pop dots to attach it for some dimension.

I found lots of directions on the web for wedding gown and tuxedo box favors and I combined several of them to come up with these. They are basically a 2-4-6-8 box with a little tweeking.

Of course the wedding gown box has a veil on the back.

Then I moved on to Mother's Day and came up with another Candy Bar Slider for Mom. Extra layer was added on the hat, hair, bouquet and shoes for more dimension.

Well, that's about it for today. I'll be back soon with more new crafts. Thanks for stopping by.

Aren't these bears just adorable!

I found these bear graphics over at Digi Web Studio and just fell in love with them. I made these tags and now I'm working on some cards. Speaking of cards, I had this kit for a wedding card but didn't realize it was so beautiful until I made one. The picture doesn't really show how beautiful it is...I embellished the dress with pearls and glitter and added a piece of tulle for the veil. I also did a few more wedding related items that I will post a little later.

Thanks for stopping by.

I can't believe February is almost over!

I'm still working hard on printables and other projects for my Etsy store. Here are a few of my printables now in the store. These first two are Easel cards....I tried them for the first time a few weeks ago and they are soooooo easy! I love making them and they look so nice. These are birthday cards for a first birthday.

The next two are baby shower printable kits that have lots of goodies to make any baby shower special. Here is the blue and pink and now I am working on a green one....just in case someone doesn't know what they are having yet.

By the way, all the graphics used in these are by Cheryl Seslar Designs.
I'm trying new card styles and today I got a template kit for a window card. I can't wait to get one done and see how that turns out.
I'll be back with more crafts later. Thanks for stopping by.

We are snowed in today so I get to craft all day!!

Well, the snow storm has finally hit the south!!! I'm not sure how many inches of snow we have but its more than I have ever seen at once. The sun is out now and it is already starting to melt.

So today I get to work on more printables for my Etsy store. Here is one I just listed...a card for Mom. The graphics are by Cheryl Seslar.

And this is what the finished card looks like. I'll be back later with more. Thanks for stopping by.

Wow....its been so long since I blogged!

I guess I got busy getting things ready for my craft shows at Christmas and ignored my blog. Then .... well I guess you could say "life just got in the way!" Things have been fairly good but it seems as we get older there are more things that have to be done and less time to do them not to mention that it nows takes us longer to get them done! Seems my days now are filled with doctors appointments, checking on the inlaws, trying to clean the house and wondering what in the world to cook for dinner.

I am still trying to find time to craft! I have been working hard on things to add to my Etsy shop. My latest thing has been "printables". I'll try to get some pics of them posted here in a day or two but if you have a few minutes, drop by my shop and take a look. Hopefully now I am back in blogging mode!
