Embossed Hearts

I have not seen my grandchildren in nearly 17 months which is WAY too long.  But in just a little over a week I will be hanging out with the grands.  I am VERY excited.  I made this cute little card for one of my granddaughters.  I always come into town with gifts and this little "I Love You" card is the perfect card to go in a gift bag,
I used this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch:

I am also entering this card in the dots and spots challenge at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge blog.  I ran my cute little heart die cuts through my Swiss Dots embossing folder just to up the cuteness factor.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Wednesday!!

Stuck on U Sketches Button Challenge

We have a new challenge up on Stuck on U Sketches -- Buttons!  I must admit to rarely using buttons on my pages although I have several jars of them. I scattered them thoughout my 2 page spread for week 18 and in addition I added some flair which some people consider buttons also.
Here is a close up of the left hand page:

And here is the right hand page:

I hope to have inspired you to add some buttons to your Project Life pages this week and link them up HERE. You will them be eligible for our monthly prize of some assorted goodies.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy Monday!

You're a Real Peach

I just loved this little 3x4 card when I received it in my July Studio Calico Project Life kit.  I knew that it would end up on a card and tonight it did just that.  Plus just having bought some sweet juicy peaches this weekend I couldn't help but use a couple of them for my staging.  Here is a little known fact -- did you know the top peach producing state in the nation?  I always thought it was Georgia because they are known for their peaches.  Heck, they even have one on their license plates.  But after having lived 4 years in the state of South Carolina, I can tell you that South Carolina claims to produce more peaches than Georgia.  I have had some South Carolina peaches and they are delicious.  So now having put my reputation on the line....I sure hope those South Carolinians were not pulling this yankee gal's leg!!  LOL
For this card I used this wonderful sketch by Mojo Monday:

I am just slipping it into their sketch challenge with only about an hour to spare.
Thanks for stopping by my a peach this week!

Wishing You the Happiest of Birthdays

One of the crafting groups I am in had a challenge to make a 4x4 square card.  Let me tell you, that is harder than you might think it is.  I had to scale everything differently but in the end I love the result. This cute little card will soon be heading to the Smoky Mountains for my cousin Colleen's birthday. 
I used this sketch from My Favorite Things (because I would love to get some of their awesome dies!!):

The papers and sundae sticker are from Carta Bella and the sentiment is Avery Elle. 

I am entering this card in the Monday Challenge at My Craft Spot: Birthdays 
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.
