I love this stamp!! It is from Crafter's Companion. I colored it with Promarkers. My mom loves Irises so I sent this to her. She has been needing a little encouragement these days anyways.
Here is another purple card I made. I ended up giving this to my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.
I was super excited to find the Redheaded Crafter's blog. I am also a redheaded crafter. It is not as uncommon as I wish it was to be a red head, but I still think it is kind of special. Amy is the redheaded crafter's name. She is super sweet and makes amazing cards! Go and check out her blog Here: http://redheadedcrafter.blogspot.com/ . She is celebrating her one year anniversary with a very sweet giveaway. I hope you enjoy her blog as much as I have.

I have always wanted to make a "quilted" card. I saw that Frosted Designs was having a quilting challenge, so I decided it was time. I cut up a bunch of one inch squares and then glued them in an alternating patter on a piece of paper. I then cut out the "quilt" with the Sizzix Top Note die (borrowed from my mother-in-law as well as the her cuttlebug). I ended up cutting the border off and putting a green cut out behind it. I sewed a little on the card too. The "Thanks" stamp is a Stampin Up stamp. (also borrowed from my mother-in-law) I added pearls and lace for some more interest.

So this is my second attempt at making a rainbow card. I am not sure if it turned out. I don't have a cloud punch. I think it would look better if I had one or two big clouds at the bottom. I really wanted the rainbow stripes to touch but for some reason I just couldn't do it. Below is my complete fail at making a rainbow card. :(

I kind of stole the idea for this card from a photo I saw. It like the antique look.
I just received this stamp set in the mail today! It is so fun to receive a package! It is called "Cute Companions - Romance" from Crafters Companion. I didn't spend a whole lot of time on this card. I just wanted to play with my new stamps. I colored it with Promarkers. I really like the look of the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment.
So, my husband is a commercial fisherman. He loves fish and fishing! Well, it is salmon season. He really wanted to catch a salmon. I really wanted him to catch one too! We both love salmon. Well, he did, on a kayak no less! Here is a picture for proof. I am so proud of him!
