A bit LATE! But TRUE LOVE anyway!

Good Monday morning stampers!

OH MY GOODNESS! I had this post ready to go, yet failed to get it finished up, and actually schedule it! So sorry! It is Monday...maybe you can forgive me...:-)

This little card I created for my Monday post over on CCS. I did this one for my daughter who just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. I am sending it to her and her Fiancee with a little bag of bath goodies. Just wanted her to know I am thinking about her...(and ALL the wedding plans! ha!) Thank goodness its not till July 2011! WHEW!

I used CCS stamp set "TRUE LOVE", stamped the background on the Pomegranate, glazed random striped Bazzill, with a black card base and Kraft from PTI.

Enjoy your week!

May your Sunday be blessed!

Blessings, good morning and all that other stuff! ;-)

Hope today is one you will find a little time for you! A few weeks ago I showed some "pampering me" swap bags I had made for a swap at Splitcoaststampers.....well let me just say, these ladies return swap where DA BOMB! I got some of the greatest ideas, and fantastic little goodies.

So yesterday, I cleaned my master bath from the ceiling to the floor, the master bedroom the same thing....I mean bleachey smellin'! I love that clean smell, although dear hubby thought I was trying to poison him...hehe! :-) Then for my treat, once we finished dinner, I treated me! The picture should explain...nothing like just soaking in a hot tube with candle and a glass of...oh well ICE WATER last night...but so refreshing and fun! I should really do that more often...and so should YOU!

Now on to a little project I created for another swap for Everything Alterable that I am in (same one in with the mini comp books below). I signed up for two spots in the framed art category....these are so awesome to give as gifts, and easy to create! Every time I find cheap, cute and sassy frames, I buy them! (PS on the FRIENDS frame the bling looks like it is pink...guess the sun, but its not, its clear! with the teal bling in the center! :-)

May your Sunday be blessed!

Its an altered Comp FRIDAY! :-)

Happy Happy Friday all!

YIPEE! :-) Hope you have great plans, I would really like to just stay home....all weekend and craft. maybe just maybe that will happen...still remains to be seen! ;-)

I am showing some mini composition books along wth matching pens I created for a swap I am in. They turned out really cute, I love these for little gifts and stocking stuffers etc (UGH, I just mentioned Christmas didnt I? Sorry! but it is coming...hehe)

These were completed with a PTI paper pad and some PTI stamps I purchased from a friend. I think they turned out really cute. The pens are RSVP pens, matching paper inside then covered with reline tape and rolled in pearl clear beads from SU.

Hope this inspires ou to get your craft on!

Have a great weekend!

Friday...another...Pamper Me Project

Happy Happy WEEKEND!

Do you have great plans for the weekend? Oh boy do I! I get to move my mother into an assisted living community! hoo hoo....I don't like moving stuff! UGH! For someone who has not moved in 15 years, I seem to get to move others WAAAAYYYY to much!!!
Oh well, its a good thing!

Onto my little project....this is another project I created for the Pamper Me Swap on SCS! I love how this one turned out too! (I showed the other one on a previous post...Tuesday this week I believe)

Anywho...I purchased the bag from The Dollar Tree...yeap, $1! Yeah me! I created the tag with my cricut and then added some bling. The RELAX stamp on the back of the tag is from Taylored Expressions. This one was themed around a sugar bath scrub recipe I found.

Let me know what you think???

You have a terrific will be HOT HOT HOT here in Texas! So its moving then the craft cave for me! :-)

Happy Weekend!

TUESDAY - "Pamper me"

Good morning my friends!

Well, its Tuesday...hopefully today will not be as rough as yesterday.Yesterday was just "one of those days!"  KWIM!

I am going to be showing you some little "Pamper Me" bags I created for a swap I was in on SCS. The goal was to send 4 bags with a tag, 2 recipes (One for a recipe of soap, soak, oil, lotion, etc, and the other for a relaxation technique or tip), add at least two things to pamper yourself. Needless to say these will make great gifts for the girls, so I signed up for 4 spots! ;) 

This is the first set I created. It was great fun and I think they would make super gifts.

First off the little bag I purchased at the Dollar store, I really think they are kids purses, but they worked super! Then I added a brad with the little tag to the bottom :it's all about me! I created the tag with my cricut and several carts. I made the recipe cards with matching papers, and a little punch for the high heel shoes. Since this set included my "foot soak" I added the high heel everywhere and included the tip for aching feet!

Included in the bag is homemade Peppermint Foot scrub,  votive holder and candle, both recipes, a foot pumice on a stick, and little cotton socks to put on after your soak.

Hope this inspires you to put together a little something for yourself....and pamper away...I know I need it today! ha maybe later!

Happy Tuesday!

Good News and Happy Monday!

Hello fellow stampers!

Hope you have some great plans to start your week off. Well first off I bet you are wondering what I am doing posting...well, guess what...Laura has asked me to stay on the Design Team through August! YEA ME!

I have created a get well card, using believe it or not the "Happy Camper" set from Creative Clear Stamps. I got to thinking that BUG OFF would be super cute for someone who is feeling yucky with a bug! :-) ha!

I used my labels nestable to cut out the stamped image and a little punch to do my bugs.

Till next Monday have a super week!

It's a rainy in Texas

Good Morning all!

Well today's forecast is RAIN 100% chance of rain. That's OK, cause down here we need it. I am getting some much needed cleaning done around here. Hopefully I will get to get into my craft den as well...cause it REALLY needs it! ***smile***

This little project I created for a friend for her HUNTER, husband. he is going to put hs favoraite treats in the jars. He should really like it and I think it turned out darn cute.

Its template from MY TIME MADE EASY, and I so love Lauren's templates. They are always quick and easy and turn out so stinkin cute! ***wink wink***

I hope you enjoy this little inspiration and that your Thursday is the best, no matter where you are!

Happy FOURTH of July!

Happy Birthday America!!!

I have several little projects all wrapped into one really quick post today! We are headed out to our 4th of July Celebration at Andice (Its a little town right here next to us, with a fantastic fireworks display) We eat good brisket sandwiches and eat homemade ice cream too! :-)

I made these little  pinwheels to decorate the car as we sit there and wait for the fireworks! :-)

These are  the cupcakes I made for us to eat while celebrating!

Here is a little box I created for my sweet sister-in-law who picked up some cute tops and stuff for my Granddaughter, as a small Thank you! (Blurry I know, but I am in a hurry! LOL)

Next is a birthday card I made for my Granddaughters little brother, for when she goes home, he is not my Grandson, but he is super sweet and loves me, he will be two this year!

That is it for now, hope you enjoy today and the family and friends you have around you today! Be sure to honor and thank those who fight for our freedom and the families that support them

Happy Independence Day!
