Punch Art Birthday Card

Here is a punch art card that I CASED from Paper Punch Addiction.  I love her ideas.  This used the owl punch, scallop, and a few other punches.  I liked how it turned out.

Valentine Card Day

I have been working all day on some Valentine's Day cards.  I used SVG cuts to make these cards today.  I really like how they turned out!  My favorite is the "Be Mine" because I love the black and pink together.  All of the paper I used was Stampin Up and I also used the stamp set "Love You Much."  I am hoping to make enought cards for my co-workers, students at school and my Sunday school class.  We will see how much I can get accomplished by next weekend.

A Few Cards

I have made a few cards during my time off of work.  I wanted to get some V-day cards done so that I would not be scrambling right before to get them completed.  I used Create a Critter and cut the lady bug at 3 1/2 and I also cut the phrase at 3 1/2.  I thought they turned out pretty cute.  Create a Critter is one of my favorites. 

I made a birthday card which I cased from one of the blogs I have been following, Paper punch addition.  I love her blog.  She can do anything with punches.  I used Stampin Up's owl punch, scallop punch, and modern label punch to complete the card.  I felt pretty good with how it turned out.

Thoughts and Prayers

I made a couple of sympathy cards tonight.  One of the ladies I work with lost her mother last week and I was unable to make it to the funeral home because of the snow :(.  I also wanted to send one to a couple that attends my church who was in a car wreck last weekend and the driver in the other car died.  I used the Thoughts and Prayers set from Stampin Up (one of my favorites).  The cards are 6 and a half by 5 and the black mat is 6 and a quarter by 4 and 3/4.  I like the black and white.  I also used my IRock for the first time putting a little bling on the front.  It took me a few minutes to figure it out, but I think it will be a tool that I use a lot!!

Snow Days

We have now been home for four days straight.  We did venture out today and made it to church.  What a blessing to belong to such a wonderful church and to belong to such a wonderful God!  I have a few projects that I have completed over the long weekend so I thought I would share.  The first pictures are ones of my two daughters and a friend making a paper bag mini book.  They seemed to have great fun making them.

Snow Days

We have been stuck in the house for four days now because of snow.  I shouldn't say stuck because I really enjoy staying home, I just wish I would have made more things.  I have made a punch art birthday card and some Valentine cards from create a critter.  I love, love, love that cartridge!  I will post pictures of them later on.

New Craft Room

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was getting new craft room built.  It is not acutally completly finished (still needs curtains, touch up on paint, and coverings for my shelves), but I have moved my supplies in.  I am in love with my new room!!  It is right off of the family room so I don't feel like I am away from my family like before when I had all of my things downstairs.  I want to decorate it with really cute things that I make.  More pictures to come!!!
