Wedding Card

I have really got to get better at posting more often!  It's a lot harder than I thought it would be to find the time to do this.  My 7 month old really takes up a lot of my time.  I just can't pull out my stuff and work on something whenever I want to.  I will try to get better. 

I recently attended a wedding reception of a girl I taught in Mia-Maids about 5-6 years ago.  It really makes you feel old when the kids you taught once upon a time start getting married and having kids.  It was a nice reception and the bride was beautiful.  Here is the card I made for her to go with her present. 

I used the Home Decor cart for the scroll.  Prima flowers, and the cuttlebug for the tan paper.  It was a pretty simple card for me.  I didn't have much time to make it, so I kept as simple as I could.  I hope you like it.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day.  I love valentine's. I told you before I would post a picture of the other valentines' I was making. 
This one of the heart bags was what I made for my oldest daughter.  She just had a couple of friends that she wanted to make something for.

The two little boxes were for my kindergartner's teachers.  I thought they were cute.

These next four bags were for the ladies I visit teach.  I loved doing them, and thought they all turned out really cute.

I had a pretty busy valentine's this year; besides making all of these, I made cupcakes for our U12 girls soccer team that My husband and I coach.  We had practice today and gave the girls a fun valentine treat when it was over. 

Thanks for stopping by.

My Pink Stamper Blog Hop Challenge

I participated in my first blog hop last night. What fun!  There are so many people out there that are so talented and full of great ideas! I am so glad they are willing to share that talent with the rest of us.
On to the challenge:  Make something using Black and your favorite color(s).  My favorite color is black so then I just used my other favs., which are, Red, white and silver. 

The scroll is from the gypsy wanderings cart, and the font is from Once upon a Princess.  I used black glitter on both of those.  The cuttlebug for the swirls on the red paper, and just some small heart brads to finish it off!  I really liked how this turned out, hope you do too!

MPS Challenge-Valentines

I almost forgot to post this card I made for the Challenge over on My Pink Stamper.  It was to make something valentine or spring.  Well, I did valentine since it is on Monday.  I think this card turned out really cute.  I had the help of my daughters to finish it. 

I used gypsy wandering for the phrase and the heart tag.  Stickles were used to glitter up the inside of the heart, and the patterned paper is from Best Creation Inc.  I also used a fiskars scallop punch for the border.  I don't know where I got the ribbon from.  Hope you like it, let me know.

Valentine Treat Bags

I finally finished the treat bags for my kindergartener. I am only showing 4 of them but we made 19. She had a lot of fun helping me pick out the colors and putting them together.  Inside the bags are a little notepad and eraser that I got from Target, and behind that stuff is a little bit of candy.

I used the Doodlecharms cart for the heart, the cuttlebug on the inside heart, and I just hand wrote the "Happy Valentine's Day".
I just kept them real simple because 5 year olds do not really care what it looks like they just want what's inside.
I still need to post the bags I made for my other daughter, and the Teachers.  I will do that either tonight or tomorrow.  c-ya then.

I recieved my first award, yeah! Thank you Krafty Kim! 

I feel so honored getting an award, I am still fairly new to this whole blogging thing.  I would like to do more posts than I have been, but my 7 month old little boy just doesn't want me to do anything. 
Thanks for all those who have visited my blog and I really enjoy reading comments, so comment often.  I am going to pass this award on to Raechel!, she has some really cute stuff.
I am hopefully posting soon. I am working on some valentines for my daughters.
