Thought that yesterday's post would be my last post until I got back from Vegas.....but I got some Happy mail yesterday, so I want to share that, then a card I made for Teri, my sweet friend.
This first card & cute images came from Mina (PinkPuds). She know's how much I love Tilda's
This is a cute set of stamps I won from Jean at Dandelion Designs. So adorable......can't wait to ink it up!! Check out her blog, she makes the cutest stamps, and she also has one last give away going on.This is a card I made for my sis & bro in law, when they come out here from Texas to visit, their favorite place is the North Shore.....inside it says "wanna come"

I made this "just because" card for Teri. When I saw this image, I thought of her cat Mochiko!!!

Okay ladies...this IS my last post until next week! Take care.

Sharing is Caring....

Sorry for these yucky pictures, but boy did I have camera problems today! I tried to take this outside in the patio, and I think the "blue" reflection of the pool has something to do with these "blueish" pics!! Anyway, here is a few of those folders that are so perfect for putting images in, I got one from Joy a while ago & thought it is a great way to share images . I have two of my blogging friends that are falling in love with Tildas , so I decided to share some with them. Hope they like it!!

Got this cute image from Jodie. I tried to follow a sketch that I seen on Maria's blog, but her image was in an oval scallop circle. I made this tablet for Sweet Teri!! She was so kind to pick up something for me at J's. Thanks Teri!

Hope everyone is having a nice week so far, can't believe that half the year is over already. I have been so busy, that I am looking forward to my Vegas vacation in a few weeks. Jamee is now of legal age (21), so she can finally join us at the blackjack tables & the machines.....

More Himawari projects & Edward!!!

(Blog currently under construction) I spent the day at the Luau that Habilitat puts on up at WWCC. They had Da Braddas (local comedians) for entertainment, they are so funny!! I was laughing so much I couldn't eat my food! My husband & daughter thought I was nuts......wait they KNOW I am nuts!! When I got home I finished the projects that I prepped last night. I made a tablet using this cute Hula girl image from Cristina @ Himawari Babies. Desk top post-it note holder. Made it in my favorite color, this is for Cristina from Himawari Babies.

Another post-it note holder...love black & red together. Also for Cristina.

All card stock is Stampin Up, I think they make the best!

I tried Teri's tutorial for this card holder, it was a very easy tutorial to follow. Check it out, she has the neatest creations. I made a few of these to hold a "surprise" in. Jodie gave me a bunch of this images of a very cute Ballerina, so I decided to play with it! It is so cute & easy to color. I used stickles on the tutu but it doesn't show in the pictures.

All card stock is from SU, the printed paper is still coming from my scrap pile, and the pretty flowers are from Summer over at Roses on Paper.
