Cheers to a New Year!

Cheers to all of you for a Happy New Year!  Our glasses were filled with diet pepsi tonight but we enjoyed a cozy evening home together.  I used baja blue on this card with watercolor paper, baja blue seam binding and baja glass glitter.  I sprayed my papers with silver paint mixed with rubbing alcohol to give it some shimmer.  Oh, the stamp set is Cheers to You. 
Next Friday watch for a Glitz Gals blog hop.  I'll be one of the stops and you'll have a chance to win blog candy at the end of the hop if you visit every stop. 
I hope you all have a wonderful 2011!

Buttons, Buttons with Puns from the Past

 I used the  largest clear block to use to create my own background stamp.  It is so much easier than stamping each stamp over and over and over.  I used blushing bride and pear pizazz.  I just got the puns from the past stamp set and combined it with buttons, buttons.
My mom quilts and I couldn't wait to make some cards that showcases one of her favorite hobbies.  I cased the card from Lyssa and I love her design.  It was so much fun pulling out different ribbons and crochet trim to play with.

Build a House by Stampin UP

A group of co-workers each decorated their own little house from Stampin UP and gave prizes at their holiday party.  Wasn't that a great idea?  I think they did a GREAT job!  This is just a small sampling of their fun designs.  Every single house was just darling.

You know you don't feel well when.....

You know you don't feel well when you are used to creating something almost every day and you haven't made anything in a week.  Hang in there with me peeps!  I'm sure my back muscles will be healed soon and I'll be back creating fun cards to share.  Until then my craft chair is a little lonely, the stamp pads might need to be dusted and I'm sure all the toys are lonely!  I know they need me.   :)  Have a great day!!

Happy 84th B'Day MOM!! We Heart YOU!!!

Mom's card just had to be pink.  There is no other pretty color in her mind!  I cased the card from Sabriena Satchwell's card she received from Rett at Stampin UP!  Thanks Rett for inspiring me.  The designer paper is Sending Love, retired from SU.  The ribbon is pretty in pink satin.  I used the Curly Cute stamp set and the trio flower punch with a few rhinestones.  I used SU border punches to create the lacy border.
