Back in Action

Click here for my Golden Birthday Challenge! (Don't forget that I'm giving away a ton of great goodies to one lucky winner, including a $25 Michael's gift card!)

My birthday weekend was the BEST weekend I've had in quite some time! Went out to my favorite restaurant, got to go see NKOTBSB (New Kids on the Block/ Backstreet Boys) in concert and enjoyed a day at the Kemah boardwalk!  And I also met some new and wonderful friends!

I know I was gonna share these with you last week, but I got pretty busy. Anyways... here is part of the big wedding order I'm working on. These are just samples for the bride to choose from. Hope you like them!

My friend Stephanie came into town this past weekend as well and I was able to show her my craft room and all my lovely creations. She was so intrigued that she wanted to help me make a card. Here is what we created at midnight on a Friday night!

Wedding Wishes

I'm so tired, but I really wanted to post a card. This is certainly not my best work, but it turned out alright. I've gone ahead and entered it into the FCCB Challenge as well. I really love my new embossing folder!

It is definitely wedding season... and this time next year I will be in lots of them! I am so thrilled! Speaking of weddings, Tyson and I are heading to Corpus Christi on Friday for one! Can't wait, it's going to be so much fun! Plus with this 100 degree weather the beach will feel so nice.

Nothing much, but here you go!

Just some quilling

Evening! Hope everyone had a restful weekend. Mine was pretty good except for the miserable heat but my sweet husband comes home on Tuesday, then we are heading to the beach for a little vacation! Can't wait! I am so ready!

I've been working on some quilling lately. Now I still in the learning process so have a long way to go. This is my first big quilling project that took me nearly 3 days to complete. You truly have to have patience when it comes to this! Am looking forward to many more of these projects!

Lots of Great Cards

Hope everyone is having a SUPER Saturday! I have been busy working on that large order and in 2 weeks I will be able to show ya'll what I've created!

Recently, I've been to a couple more card classes and have made some really neat cards and am finally getting around to showing them off! The ladies who design these cards are just fabulous! Hope ya'll enjoy them as much as I do and if you'd like to know how to make any of them, just let me know!

So my birthday is coming up in a couple weeks and I'm thinking of either doing a card challenge on my blog or a giveaway! What do ya'll think would be best?

Until next time.... Happy Crafting!

I am so ready for a nice big jump into a pool or a trip to the beach! It is way too HOT for my liking! I have some exciting news, well for me it is! I finally have my first BIG order... a wedding! I get to do Save the Dates, Invitations, Ceremony Programs... and so much more! I'm so thrilled, yet nervous at the same time!

So today I have decided to join in on the fun over at My Pink Stamper. Robyn is having a color challenge and I haven't done one of her challenges in quite some time so I sure enjoyed it!

Sick :(

Not sure what's going on... but I have just been sick as a dog over here. I was hoping it was just a 24 hour bug but unfortunately it's a little worse than that. I know I've told ya'll I would be posting more projects, but I truly didn't expect to get sick. I hate feeling so weak... it is certainly not fun. So just hang with me, I'll be back in action very soon hopefully!

Wanted to share a quick card with ya'll. This is one I received from my wonderful Stampin Up demonstrator, Patsy! Her cards are just amazing and she always puts one in with every order! This one is just so CUTE I had to show ya'll!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week and I hope to be back in my craftroom very soon! Thank you all for your continued support... ya'll are the BEST!
