Finally the move is complete, the house is on the market and we are all well...for now. :) So I finally am starting to have a little time to work on my hobbies! Yay! This card was made as a gift for somebody. I used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #08 found here:
I just turned it on it's side and added a couple of things. I had some of my DCWV Nana's Nursery - Girl paper out because I had used some to make a set of thank yous for a friend that just had a baby, and I decided to try it with this sketch. I think it turned out cute!
All the paper is DCWV either Nana's Nursery - Girl or from the spring textured cardstock stack. I used colorbox chalk pink (can't remember exact name) ink, as well as a versamark green ink pad. The stamp is Stampabilities, the ribbon came off of a gift basket I got around Christmas time, and the pink "faux" dew drops are from Michaels.
I think I'm going to use this sketch some more! Such a great one! TFL!

The paper is Afternoon Tea by SU!, the hardware is the new hodgepodge silver from SU!s mini album. The ribbon is from HL.
I had a lot of fun making it! :) Thanks for looking!
These are little covered note pads. I found the note pads at the dollar store - 8 for a dollar I think. The paper used on them are from various places. The colorful striped paper is from Nana's Nursery (DCWV) The yellow striped paper is from the dollar spot at Target. The stamps are SU! Priceless and one of the hostess sets (I can't think of which one right now). The pens were from the Target dollar spot too (16 for a dollar!). The yellow ribbon is from the Michael's dollar bin...what else? Oh, the little "faux brads" are from the floral section in Michael's! I took two pictures of the first one because I couldn't get the lighting right...someday I'll figure it out! Thanks for looking!

Hard to see all the details with the lighting in my dining room. Need to find a better way to take pictures, but I think at least you can get the idea of what the cards look like! Much prettier in person I promise! These are trial runs for a gift idea! Thanks for looking!

Here are two of my new cards I made for a friend to give to her sister-in-law that is having twin girls! I like the purple one better because of how I mounted the elephant, but I still love them both. Later I will put more info on how I made it. Right now I have lots of cleaning tod do around the house! (joy!) :)

This is my new super cool toy! My Daddy found it for me at a local non-profit organization in Houston called NAM (http://www.namonline.org/). It was from an old dept store - to display costume jewelry on! It is AWESOME! We have a bunch of things that we are going to add to it, but for now I am using it to store a bunch of stuff that I want out of the little one's reach!! Now I'm on the lookout for stores that are closing and selling their fixtures and such! :)

Ok, here is the new organizer I made for my ribbon. I got it from another lady...she had made one for her stampin up stamp pads, but I modified her design to put my ribbon in. Mine is kind of crooked and not as pretty looking as hers, but I love it! :)
