My new blog design!

Wow guys... doesn't it look fantastic in here? Ragan over at Blogger Boutique was the one who designed this for me. Working with Ragan was a pleasure. Not only did she see my vision but she went above and beyond to help me with a few little tweeks here and there. I would highly recomend using her services. She is FAN freekin TASTIC!

More recipe cards

Heehee I am in actually 2 recipe swaps this month. This is for the swap over at Paper Therapy. I hope noone minds me using the same recipe for both. It's super yummy!! Again I pulled out my handy dandy sewing machine and went to work. Oh how fun sewing on cards is. So much faster than all of the paper piercing I used to do. This swap the card size was to be 6 x 6. I like this size so much better as it allows more space to decorate.

Summer is coming to an end. School starts here in 2 days. It seems the kids are trying to fit in everything in these last two days that they possibly can. It's off to 4th grade this year for my little guy. Although he's not so little anymore and I guess I should stop saying that! LOL I'll post pics of the first day of school on Wednesday.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

This is awesome! I love to use black or brown with a lot of my cards and then using bright colors against a dark background really makes everything pop! Happy Birthday!

Samantha please email me your mailing information and I will get this package right out to you. You have until Mon 8/23.

Well today is my birthday!! We are going out to breakfast and then I get to go to our huge Joanns Super Store a few towns over. I am hoping they will have lots of goodies. I hear the super stores are awesome. Then we will be going out to dinner and a movie. Perhaps with some scrappy time in between! :) Thanks everyone for playing along to help celebrate my special day! I will leave you with a project I just finished yesterday. Recipe cards for my scrap club swap. I hope they like um'. It's the first time I ever sewed on a card. It was so much fun! Glad to finally have my sewing machine working again.

Paper Therapy Swap

This darling card was made for a fun monthly card swap over at Paper Therapy. The theme this month is " Girl Time". What better way to celebrate some much needed girl time by a girls night out?? Martini's anyone? LOL

My family and I are enjoying the last few days of summer vacation. My hubby is on vacation this week and we have decided to lay low and just rest. Spend time together and stay in our pj's all day! Can't remember the last time I did that. I hope the last of your summer days are enjoyable.

Thanks for popping in. Wishes for a great day!
