A quick post before going to bed to share some cards, mostly made by other people...

I got this pretty card from my March secret sister, Karen. 

Made these 2 cards from a 'make and take' awhile back at Taj Clubhouse.

A super cute thank you card fromJoy!

And my good friend, fellow crafting buddy made me these lovely cards with her Cricut!
Even though it's a machine, I got lazy with mine! :(
But I hope to get back into it later...

Yay, tomorrow is Thursday already, and last day of March!
I hope no one does any April Fool's pranks on me! :)
Have a good one!

Simple Christmas

A simple card I made for the challenge at Clean & Simple!
I was going to make 3 identical cards but sadly, I gave up on trying to stamp in a line. :O
One day, I'll try again. I was usng the stampamajig but guess I don't know how to use it properly!
Oh and my mojo went on vacation so I decided to use a sticker for the sentiment instead of stamping! :(
Bad I know, life's been a bit crazy lately...but isn't that what life is all about?! I remember in high school when things were going rough, I made up my own quote...
"If life were simple, it wouldn't be life".
Just to name one thing, I was in my first car accident the other week...luckily, I'm fine, I just felt traumatized for a day!
Thanks for stopping by!
Can't believe it's almost April!

Altered Notepad

Decided to make an altered notepad since they've been neglected. This will be one of the things for my secret sister that Kris hosts every month, but I can't say who's mine because I didn't send it out yet! This is for the challenge at Stamp with fun and the theme was "Spring". Got inspiration for my notepad from an older Mojo Monday Sketch. Tried to make it look vintage, but I'm still working on it.

Thanks for your visit!
Yay for Thursday work Friday! :)

Easter Anya

Made my 2nd Easter card!...wish I had more time to keep 'em coming! hehe. I went to Club Anya for a sketch challenge. Had fun with this even though the sketch was a little difficult for me.

Luckily, Easter is late this year so I have some time to make some more. But of course it will come by before you know it!
Hope you're all having a great week so far!

Actions really speak louder than words.
Sometimes you can't ask someone if they'll do something/or not, you just gotta watch their actions and trust your instincts! I believe your gut tells all!

Happy Winter

Got to make a few more Chrismtas cards for Operation Write Home! I headed to the OWH blog and their challenge was to use scallops. I made identical cards and used the first one for the challenge. Kept them simple so I could make more than one faster.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy Birthday

I made this card really quick in time for the deadline at There She Goes! I just found out about this awesome stamp company recently while blogging. I love all their stamps...probably not a good thing! :( I used one of the new stamps I got in the mail! :)
I can't believe the weekend is over...that's okay, looking forward to Prince Kuhio Day holiday on Friday! :)
Have a good Monday everyone!

Happy Easter

Decided to make my first easter card for the year! I know pretty late, considering I'm starting my Christmas cards already. Used some new DP I got and another excuse to use PI since I entered the challenge at My Favorite Things!

Just a short post...glad it's almost the weekend!
Have a great Friday everyone!

Birthday Gift Card Holder

My co-worker's birthday was yesterday and everyone was pitching in for a gift card so I decided to make the card/gift card holder. I wanted to make something different so I searched google...the easiest place for me. (I just type in something and see which picture looks the best to me! :) ) I'll share the tutorial with you it from here. Even though the card base was only 4 1/4 x 4 1/4, I still wanted to use the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday Challenge. I couldn't resist using another PI image! :)

Here's the front...

Here's the inside with a sample gift card I had but funny we gave her Starbucks too!
Left the inside with solid color so my co-workers and I could sign inside.

Here's the card/gift card holder with the ribbon tied on the side...
I should of made one of the ribbons a different color but everyone liked it anyways...phew!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great St. Patty's Day tomorrow!

Butterfly Thank You

Made these cards for the challenge at Clean & Simple.
Since these are quick cards, I made 3 of them again. Made them all identical, just used different colors.
Butterflies and sentiment are both Stampin' Up.
Yay tomorrow is Wednesday a.k.a. hump day already! :)
Hope you're all having a great week so far!

Poinsettia Christmas

Finally got a chance to do a challenge. I went to Clean & Simple. I decided that for the C&S challenges, I will try my best to make 3 identical/similar cards. That way, I'll can build a stash faster and they will be great for gifts later!

For these cards, I used my poinsettia embossing folder and tried my best to rub red ink only on the raised portion. Then used a nestabilities die for the sentiment and just added ribbon and a poinsettia embellishment. It's as simple as that!
I forgot to mention, this is my first 3 cards out of the many cards I plan to send to Operation Write Home! Last year, I donated 20 cards (I started late last year) and I really want to donate more this year so I'm starting early! :)
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Missing You

Finally got to do a challenge this week! Of course I couldn't miss the challenge for My Favorite Things.
This was a super fun sketch and decided to use a color combo that I'm not used to!
I can't believe tomorrow is Friday already...but I'm not complaining! :)
Have a great weekend!

Bargello Technique...

Squeezed in a little time to share something! Wish I had more time to craft! I'm not even sure how to pronounce "bargello" but I was browsing online and came across someone's blog with an interesting tutorial. When I tried it's really not that hard, but looks cool after! I love the samples she had on her blog but I decided to keep mine simple for now. I made 3 of them to practice, just used different sentiment stamps.

It's always fun to try something new!
Thanks for your visit!

Have a Magical Day!

First time I'm using this Ketto image! Can't tell in the pic, but I put stickles on her wings and glossy accents on the heart and crown.
I'm trying so hard to start using things I already have! There's so many cute things and great inspiration lately! :O
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

*Edit: just realized I missed the challenge at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. That's ok, there's always next week and I still had fun with this sketch.

Be Merry

Decided to try and get a head start on Christmas cards because you know how time just flies!
Used my Kaiser Craft Christmas Carnival paper to use non-traditional colors!
Challenge is for My Favorite Things!
The week went by fast again! Hope you all have a great weekend!
And hope you had a wonderful Girl's Day!
(Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to make favors this year!)
