Another try

Hi Guys!! Remember this card? I decided to enter it as another try for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol contest. I believe this is by far the most encouraging card I have ever made. I can't believe I didn't think of it before. The theme for Gallery Idol is encouragement. I made this card for someone joining the Military to encourage them to follow their dreams. It's definitely a fave of mine.

Have you sent in your submission? You really should give it a try! They have some fabby prizes. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Graphic 45 Intro

Hello Guys!! Today is my debut on the Graphic 45 blog. I am being introduced as a new Design Team member. Along with my intro are my final 3 project submissions. I didn't want to share them on my blog until Graphic 45 published them first. So these are new to all of you! If you have a second you really should view Graphic 45's blog and check out all of the DT's final submissions. You will be blown away... completely!

Here are my final round projects. After the pictures are three videos. These are the videos I submitted for the final audition. We had the choice of mailing off our projects or creating a video showcasing them. I chose to do the video. But I made three!! LOL Just to make it easier for Graphic 45 to look over a certain project rather than view the entire video again and again.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my projects. Thank you to Graphic 45 for this unbelievable experience. Wishes for a great day!!

Teacher Appreciation Crafts

Hi Guys!! How's it going? I hope you all are having a great day! I got a call this week about Teacher Appreciation being next week and that they needed some help. On the to do list was to make tags for various days during the week. So of course I volunteered to make ALL of the tags. LOL $5 tags for each day! And all different. But how fun right? The tag above with the little book worm (I love this image) is going to be tied onto a bottle of water with a crystal light pouch. It says "Thanks for quenching our students' thirst for knowledge". Neat idea! Of course the tag had to be super cute and full of color.

These little tags above say "Thanks for POPing up with new ideas". These are going to be tied onto a bag of popcorn. 45 of these too! Lordy! Can ya tell the little saying is POP'd up? I still need to make the ones for the flower pots. I'll share those later this weekend.

Thanks again to everyone for your wonderful comments on the $100.00 contest. Wasn't it a blast? Stay tuned for more giveaways this month. Thanks for stopping by. Wishes for a great day!
