~ Happy Memorial Day! ~

Hello friends!!

Happy Memorial Day to my fellow Americans. I just wanted to take time out from the festivities today to wish you all a wonderful holiday. I hope yours is filled with family, fun, and some BBQ!! My son and I are patiently waiting to get in our swimming pool for the first time this season. The water temp is right around 73. We wont go in until it hits 75. Otherwise you have blue lips!! LOL Come on sun... just a couple more degrees. Other than that we are hanging out and grilling out hot diggity dogs for dinner. The sun is shining, it's warm, and we have no rain in sight! Yippeee...

I will be showcasing video #2 of my studio tomorrow. So be sure to check back then. Wishes for a great day!

Little Shabby's

Hey fellow bloggers!
Aren't these little 3x3 shabby's so cute? These are the first 3x3 cards I have made unless you count the ones for my son's lunch box. :) They are so super fun to make. And perfect for that little note to say thanks or hi.

It's amazing the detail you can fit on these. As a matter of fact that's half the fun! I hope the sun is shining where you are today and that you are having a great day!

Thanks for stopping by.
Stay tuned... blog candy coming soon.

Hey bloggers!! TGIF
It's time for another Fabulous Friday Challenge over at Frosted Designs. This week the challenge is a Patriotic/Armed Services theme. Create any project with that theme in mind. It's perfect because tomorrow is Armed Forces Day here in the states.

I'm quite partial to anything military since I served 7 years in the Army and I am a veteran of the Gulf War. This is the card I made for the challenge. It was made for someone joining the service. In hopes they live their dream and soar to new heights.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Baby Girl Tin

Hi bloggers!!
I hope the sun is shining where you are today.
This adorable baby tin was made for my cousin. His wife, who is also a Friend of mine, is preggers with their first child. I knew exactly what I wanted to make her. One of my Baby Tins.

As you can see there are labels for the first 12 months of babies life. The tin is filled with 2 cards for each month. One for a picture and one for jotting a few notes.

It's almost like designing 24 cards!! *ugh* But oh so worth it. The shower is this Sunday. I sure hope she loves it!! Thanks for letting me share and for stopping by today.

Wishes for a great day!
