Happy happy birthday! I love birthday hops. Both cards are beautiful! I really love the one you made for my friend. You used my favorite colors, print, and age! Haha. ;) I would love to have a duplicate of that to hang in my craft room. It goes so perfectly! I have a zebra rug even, with a pink border! On to the blog candy... OMG! Are the copics part of the candy! I would KILL to win those! I am desperately trying to build my collection, but they are soooo expensive. Thanks for the chance to win! I'd jump up and down if I do! ;)

My Birthday Favorites Blog Hop!!!

Thank you to everyone for joining me and all the very talented ladies on this hop!!!! I appreciate everyone for their support!

I want to also thank Peachy Keen Stamps for donating a few of my favorite stamp faces! So in honor of their generosity I wanted to make a card with their sketch challenge in mind.

This card has many of my favorite things: Pink by Design stamps " Peachy Keen "Laughy Taffy" stamps, Zebra paper, my white gel pen of course, and my Cricut! I used the "Sweet Treat" cartridge, and two Martha Stewart punches.

LOL- Did you really think I was 28?...sadly no, I thought it would be silly to make myself a card so this will be for my friend Katie who has a birthday coming up (Katie act suprised when I give it to you) LOL

I also have a guest designer~Suzi Sauer, My BFF from grade school came to visit me last year and I introduced her to the world of Cricut and she's never looked back...LOL She made me this beautiful card with my fav's the color purple and shopping !!!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Yes I know our school is a week behind..lol why? I dont know but this week is teacher appreciation week.

So I created these customized notebooks. I bought the notebooks on clearance at Michael's for .39 cents and knew I could do something with them.

Our school colors are green and yellow and they also use brown so this was perfect !!!

I used Campin Critters for the Beaver (because we are the Beavers!) and a Pink by Design stamp from the stamp set " Big Thoughts"

As you know the media is a buzz..... So I wanted to say THANKS to our troops who fight each day for our freedom!

The soldier is from the Cricut Decals cartridge and the stamp from the Pink by Design "Our Troops".

I also used paper that reminded me of fireworks and the Martha Stewart Starburst punch.
