more raks....

Got this cute owl card from Teri. My favorite color combo!! I got her this stamp from Michael's when I was in Vegas... This next rak is from Brenda (Sweet as a Gumdrop) She is a local girl who is new to blogging. Check out her blog, she has some really cute stuff!! I LOVE this Hello Kitty tablet & pen. She even made a cute HK tag.

This is from Marisa, who I got to meet in person when I went to Vegas. She is such a sweet lady. I will be putting these to good use.

I will be posting a Special BD card tomorrow. Hope you are all having a great week, I can't believe the weeks almost over!!

Found out this morning that it is one of my day care kids Mom's BD, so during nap time I made some earring's for her & also a quick 3x3 card. I will give them to her when she picks up her children.
I also have 2 birthdays for boys, so these are a few quick cards I made. One likes "spaceships " & the other "Firemen" this is the cards I made for them.

Come back tomorrow to see an AWESOME RAK I received from Maria!!
I need to get cracking with a bunch of Thank You cards now......

My sister needed 10 party favors, 5 boys/5 girls, so this is what I made, the drink box holder/one sided one only. She will buy goodies to put in cello bags & tie with coordinating color ribbon & stick it into each holder.
Isn't this froggie so cute? Thanks Teri! I got this sizzix die from her yesterday at her class. I also got a Honu one. I just added the "googly" eyes.

Thanks to all of you who sent me email & Get Well wishes. I am feeling much better. Just about back to my old self....CRAZY!!! LOL

I want to share some of the beautiful cards I got from Teri's & Jen's monthly OCS.
This first card is from Liann, she not only sent this beautiful card, she also made me an accordion file folder & added such adorable images!!

This is from Jen's monthly swap, my partner was Jayne C., the theme was flowers, so she sent me all these wonderful flower goodies!

This adorable Tinkerbell card & stickers came from Berenice, she was my partner for Teri's OCS, originally she had made me a shaker card, but it didn't quite make the trip in good condition from Mexico to Hawaii. She felt bad, and was so sweet to send me another card & added these cute Tinkerbell stickers in it. Thank you so much, I love it.

I'm Back....

Well I have been back for 2 days now, and feeling better. Those of you closest to me know all about my time in Vegas......SICK, ER visit & all. I finally got my appetite back, so will probably gain the weight back real fast, especially since I am back to eating CHOCOLATE!!!

I am so scared to go on a Vacation again, with the fear of getting sick. I did get to enjoy (well despite the headache) one day of craft shopping w/ Marisa. Got some small raks for some of my peeps & prizes for the HB was all down hill after that!!

Just wanted to share a RAK I got from Marisa in Vegas, and one I got in the mail when I got back from Maylee.
I got this rak (the Fairy side) from Marisa who I finally got to meet in person. She is so sweet & friendly, it's like I have known her for a long time. It had some Bath & Body works goodies inside. Wish I would've spent more time with her, but then I got sick the very next day!! Next time Marisa.....I owe you lunch.
This next card & Cute Tinkerbell stamps came from Maylee, I ALMOST got this at Michael's, but was feeling yucky that day so I just wanted to get out of the store!!!! A first ever for me in a craft store, that's how sick I was feeling...I gave up Tinkerbell stamps...I ended up getting myself 2 things!!!!!

Well I am resting up, and can't wait to go to Teri's on Sunday for her class, it is always FUN!!! And I can EAT CHOCOLATE!!! Her brownies are the bomb.

Hope to get to crafting real soon, and will be posting on a regular basics. I have gotten cards sent to me for the HB challenge, and I tell you it will be hard to chose a winner!!

Until my next post~ God Bless
