3 Birds in the house !!!!

I recently got 3 birds so I of course had to make something! I have a friend with a birthday coming up so I wanted to make this cute bird holding a cupcake!

The bird is from 3 Birds on Parade and the cloud is actually a white flower from Mini Monograms that I inked blue around the edges.

I used stickles (of course), pop dots and a MPS stamp....inside is a birthday stamp and cupcake stamp my circle sister recently sent to me, also the cute ribbon with the white picket fence on it (got it on clearance after Easter....can I get a whoo hoo)... Enjoy!

Decorating my Craft room

So I purchased these black metal card holders to put in my craft room. Of course black isn't the color of the rest of the hardware so I had my husband spray paint them with Krylon hammered brown spray paint. It is awesome it gives the metal a hammered look!

So this is a pic of before and after, and my problem now is thinking up some kind of saying to put in the room, maybe above the card racks?

Any saying suggestions would be great! I will find something to give to the person that comes up with the saying I choose! In case of duplicate suggestions , the prize will go to the first person that suggest the saying first.

Thanks for help !!! If your wondering how can I get these too? I purchased them through "Celebrating Home" which is a catalog/home based business....I had a party and got these free but you can purchase them too ☺
********These are $19.50 and you can order by clicking HERE they ship directly to YOUR home!!

Labor Day !!

Happy Labor Day Everyone! This weeks challenge is to create something related to labor day!

This card is made and dedicated to all the men and women in Law Enforcement!
So many years My husband and I worked Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays, Family Reunions, and back to back 18 hour shifts.
Each day they sacrifice time away from their families protecting us, many complete strangers from harm. Some even make the ultimate sacrifice and that is what this card is for. The NLEOM stands for the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial. Their symbol is the badge with a rose through it.

I created this card with Independence Day for the Flag, Everyday Paper Dolls for the badge, and Indie Art for the rose. Also used was the Distressing stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder. I also used rhinestones and red and green stickles for the rose.

SO the next time you see a Police Officer, Fireman, or Soldier take a minute to thank them for their service. They are putting their life in harms way to save and protect what is most dear to us, our families.
If you would like to participate in this weeks challenge please join us over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog !!!
