Post it note holder

I tried one of those post it note holders. My daughter bought me a whole pack of the post-it's at Fisher & I never attempted to make anything with them, so here is my first creation, and yes I did not use Hello Kitty!! Can you believe that?!! But I am today! LOL I used the coasters that I took off the table at Chilli's in Kapolei. My husband started laughing when he saw me put them in my purse. He said my mind is always thinking "um, what can I make with this" I got this idea from Jodi. Hope everyone is having a great week so far. God Bless you all my Peeps.

Secretary's Day cards for sis & a surprise for her

I made my Sis this collage frame , got the idea from Michelle at http://mushiscreativeinspirations.blogspot.com/
She makes bigger ones, but I wanted to try a smaller one first! My sister loved it! She was surprise when she came to pick up the cards & I surprised her with this!

My sister called & asked me to make 4 cards for her, 2 3x3's and 2 regular size. I had ONE HOUR to do it!!! She was on her way to work & forgot about the cards that was needed....so here is what I did.... Himawari Babies & Hello Kitty... I have a "prep can" a tin that has things already made, like the Hello Kitties, nesties die cuts in diffrent colors & shapes etc.... so when I need to make a fast card, I reach for that tin box!!

Larger magazine holder & card set...

I thought I'd try the larger version of the mini 3x3 magazine holder. I used SU cardstock, whisper white, black, pacific point & mint melody. I finally inked up the SU set called "Fifth Ave". I just love this set. Buttons are from WalMart in the sewing section.

Mom & Dad's Day cards

I made these Mom & Dad's day cards for some people that wanted them. I used some Magnolia stamped images that was sent to me from Linda (Linanna Designs), also a Sarah Kay image? I colored the images with SU watercolor pencils & a water brush. The surfer dude is a Nancy Kubo Digi image.

I will make a few more Father's Day cards for my brothers using that awesome set that Dawne (Dawneys Delights) gave to me. I'll be posting those later. Both my Dad & Father in law is no longer with us. But I will make some for my brothers & brother in law.

Played with my Cricut & a Wonderful Gift

Got to play with my Cricut & make more cards this long weekend. I just love 3 day weekends! I bet we ALL do!

Got this Wonderful Gift from Dawne (dawneys-delights.blogspot.com/) Thanks so much Dawne, I love it! I now have a Masculine set I can make Father's Day cards with. I tend to have more Feminine sets then anything else. I find it is easier making "girly" cards, because of all the Bling, flowers etc that you can add to it. I will have to ink this up tonight.

My special book mark & copics lesson....

I just had to share this book mark with you. I got this book mark from Joy (A Place to be Me) last October. I read daily & wanted to show you how much I treasure this bookmark! I could make a new one, but it just wouldn't be the same. Every time I reach for this to pull & then put back where I left off, it puts a smile on my face to know that someone made this just for me!

Copic lesson from Jodie
These next three cards I made using images that was given to me already colored in by Jodie (Hawaiian Angels). She gave me a lesson on how to use & blend with Copics. She does such a wonderful job with those copics.

I added a bling for the cherry & added liquid lacquer for the chocolate syrup & then some dazzling diamonds for the white part. Looks yummy!!
