A cute, quick and easy card!

At Robert's, Micheal's and Joann's they usually have stamps, ink, ribbon, and cards for a 1$ by Studio g. I like to buy the cards and see how many different ways I can make the cards. This is what I did with one of the St.Patrick's Day cards.

I traced the shape of the outside of the card on white, cut it and then taped it so it would cover the holes. On the 2 large clovers I used glitter and then on the 3 small ones I used stickles. Stamped some cute sayings on it and ta~da you are done!!

Have a great one!!

Happy Sunday!!

Friday my best friend and I went scrapbook shopping! We went to a NEW scrapbook store "Heartfelt" and one that we have been to before "Scrapbook Clearance Outlet".

Heartfelt had a very BIG selection, and you receive 10% OFF every time you shop there. Instead of have a punch card, they have it stored in the computer with your name and phone number. When you have spent 150$ at the store you get a 15$ coupon! Also at Heartfelt they sale fabric and quilting materials. The prices were around the same as any self owned scrapbook store.

Scrapbook Clearance Outlet, is one that we have been to before. Everything in the back is 40% OFF, everything in the front of the store is 20% OFF. Also she has weekly deals. Last weeks deal was, buy 1 get 2 free. She has a .50 cent box. I found all sorts of goodies in there. I will be giving away some over then next little while.

All in all it was a very good shopping trip.

Then on Sat. we cropped the day away!!

I used some new toys that I have had for a while and had never used. I got about 15 pages done. Watched some chick flicks and had a break!!

I will be posting different projects for St.Patricks Day all week! St.Patrick's Day is special to my family. My parent's will have been married 39 years!!

Thanks for checkin' in!

Please check out my DT website, she is always having something fabulous going on!!

Have a good one!!

Secret Project....

Don't tell my mom!!
I am making her a mini album for Mother's Day. I know it is a little early but as crazy as life is right now, I rather be ahead then behind!

My mom is the greatest! She has taught me so very many things. To be strong, brave and to continue to seek out your dreams! I hope I am a
t least half the woman my mother is!

The theme of the mini is... Somewhere over the rain
a song that she sang to me quite often, among many others. I found these cut files on one of the many websites I frequent and it was perfect.

Dorothy and Toto
There will be more to come, but this was the first one I have ever done and I thought it turned out really cute!

April 1st I will be having a blog challenge! It will run for a month long and the prize will be awesome!! :) and no it is not an April Fool's joke :)

Please check out my DT website she has amazing things going on all the time!
