Refrigerator Magnet


Today I am sharing a little something I made with a new paper line I found over at Twopeas, Authentique Paper!! I used two coasters and some pattern paper from The Splendid Collection to put together this refrigerator magnet.

I picked my favorite pictures of my boys and cut them into 3 inch squares. The two coasters are put together with button twine and then I placed small magnet strips on the back.

Here it is on the fridge, :)

Thanks for stopping in,

Moxie Fab Botanical Challenge


Lately I am really enjoying some challenges on the web and today I am popping in to share my card for the Moxie Fab Fanatical About Botanical Challenge. I love flowers and I love rustic cards, so today I tried to combine the two for one card.

I wish my pictures would have turned out a little better.... but my camera can only do so much. Anyway I am very happy with how it turned out!

Yellow Meets Grey....Grey Meets Yellow

Happy Thursday Afternoon,

I have to say I am in love with Yellow and Grey!! I mentioned it in my post yesterday and also my blog is decked out in what else but Yellow and Grey!! So today yet again I am sharing some projects with Yellow and Grey. I must warn you however that my pictures aren't very good because I was wrestling this little guy!! OK, here we have a gift bag and card for a Birthday I have coming up this weekend.

I really like butterflies also!!!

Here I used some Bazzill Paper, the lighter color is Tin Roof and it is embossed with flowers. The yellow is Harvest Gold from Papertrey Ink.

(Below) Last but not least, one of my favorite cards! For this one I used American Crafts Glitter Thickers (Niki Riki in Sunflower). I drew the heart by hand, cut it out, then stamped YOU from Technique Tuesday Smooch Set. Love that set by the way!!

Well that's it for today!! Thanks for stopping in,

CFC13-The Long and Short of it!!

Hello All,

I am in kind of late tonight to share a card for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This is my first CAS challenge to try , so I am super excited to share my card!!

First off, this card is HUGE!! Anyway, I am kind of in LOVE with yellow and grey right now! So it may look a little strange to use those colors for a Birthday card but hey I had to try right!

I just bought the yellow glitter thickers (American Crafts) from Michael's today for 40 % off! I just had to put them to use! Anyway thanks for stopping in, be sure to look at every one's cards over at the CAS-ual Fridays Website. I will be participating a lot more for sure!


PS: The Balloon is actually a Lunar Light from Lawn Fawn!!
