A bella card and {a new car}

Don't you just love the smell of a new car? Well I sure do even if it's not brand new, its still new to me. I got a new, used car today. It was totally unexpected, you know when you just go to look, were not going to buy anything and then something happens and you get to bring it home. I just love it when that happens. I can't believe I totally forgot to take a picture, maybe tomorrow. Ok, ok, on to the card. As soon as I saw bikababeabella, I had to have her and look how cute she is on her bike. Have a great weekend,

One of my favorites

The weather continues to be wet here, but warm today with another chance of storms tonight. My kids are going crazy from being stuck in the house for 2 days. Hopefully we can get outside before bad weather strikes again, or mommy may go crazy with them.

Here is a card I made awhile ago and I have to say it's one of my favorites.
I'm just in love with red and black right know.
Well hope you like it,

On a side note, the weather here is sooooo rainy, with more rain to come over the weekend, so I guess that means I'll have lots of time to stamp(I hope.) Hope you all have a great weekend.

Teachers gifts

Yesterday was the last day of Sunday School for my daughter, until the fall. I wanted to make something for the teachers that helped teach, to show how much we appreciate it. So here is what I came up with.
The paper is BasicGrey Blush collection. I used SU's Love and Happiness rub-on's on the front of the tin, all though you can't see it in the picture. For the tag I downloaded the saying from Creating Keepsakes. I added some ribbon, making memories flowers and buttons and a dew drop. Hope you like it.

Happy National Scrap booking Day!!

Well I hope you all got lots of scrap booking done today. I did not. Our local fire dept. had a pancake feed today with free rides on the fire truck. The kids loved it. Then off to Kearney to eat and do a little shopping. Then I got to rummmage throught a junktique store. I love looking through old things and try to think of new ways to use them. No great finds, just a few things. I will take a picture and post it tomorrow.
This is a layout that I did at a crop a couple of weeks ago. I love how it turned out. The large label is from Jenni Bowlin and I can't get enough of them. Hope you like it.

Happy May Day, a little late. We made our may baskets and delivered them to family and friends and my daughter loved it. She finally understands to ring the doorbell and run away and we peeked from around the corner to make sure they got it. It's makes for nice memories. But no pictures, I forgot to take the camera, what was I thinking.
Well tomorrow is my sister's 10th wedding anniversary, so here it the card I made for them. Hope they like it.
It's a side pocket card. I used real red cardstock for the base and soft sky designer paper both from SU. I used a Heidi Swap ghost heart and red thickers from American Crafts for the numbers. I stamped the word happy and together in real red ink for Happy everything and yrs are rub-ons from making memories. I used Stamp of Authenticity for the tab and stamped Happy Anniversary from Hugs and Wishes and from all of us is from Family Phrases.
Thanks for looking
