Repurposing...cards too???

Hello everyone, happy Tuesday!! We're getting ready to head over to DD #2's house for a birthday dinner for her boyfriend and I wanted to share his card. So I made this card last July for a couple of challenges and it was actually an invitation. You can see the original post here. Well like most scrappers, I NEVER throw anything away and have 2 big boxes filled with all my cards. Knowing that DD gave her boyfriend a new bbq for his birthday, I thought this card was perfect. Luckily for most of my challenges I don't finish the inside of the cards, so I pulled this card out and voila! I repurposed it as a birthday card! And since I was short on time, this worked perfect!! I used a Pink By Design stamp for the front, and the sentiment stamp is from My Craft Spot. Easy peasy! They're planning on a bbq tonight, which should be interesting since it's been raining ALL day! Oh well, should be fun anyway. I hope you have a great evening, and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Last Day of Winter 2012

Hello everyone! How was your last day of winter? I know some areas of the country are enjoying really warm conditions, but it was almost cold here in the north state, which was nice since it hasn't felt like winter at all. So to celebrate the coming of Spring, I thought I'd share a card I made for DD #3 last week. I finally bought some Wobbles and thought this was a great time to try them out. She LOVED it!! The best part was the huge smile on her face. I hope you enjoy the card, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
Supply List:
CS: Recollection
Stamps: Scrappy Moms and Peachykeen
Ribbon: Michael's

Nirbie's Room

Hello everyone, how's your week going? We have had a very stormy day, lots of rain and wind, but all and all it was nice since we need the rain. I'm sorry I haven't posted much lately, it's just been busy around here. I did get a chance to play in my room over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you. DD#2 is fairly new to scrapping and has wanted a sign for the room her and her boyfriend share for an office/scraproom. I've been working on it a little at a time, but finally finished it. This is the DD that created the new look on my blog and who's nickname was created by her boyfriend, a combination of Nerd and Barbie.
Well, when we ordered her scrapbook paper birthday cake, which you can see here, I spelled it one way, realized the boyfriend spelled it Nirby, and then for some reason when I made the sign I spelled it another way...blame it on menopause!!! lol But I look at it this way, since it really isn't a real name, I can spell it any way I want!! :) She asked me to include her boyfriend's name on it too so he wouldn't be left out which is where the "Stinky" came in...don't ask, you can use your imagination on that one! lol
I really love the colors of it, which of course match her room. This was the first time I cut vinyl on my E2 and LOVED how easy it was!! It's so nice not to have to remember what settings to use! And I was able to use a lot of scraps in my stash, win-win!!! Well, hope you like it and I want to thank you for stopping by. Have a great evening!!

Sunday Evening

Hello everyone, how was your weekend? Hard to believe that it's almost over and another week ahead. I'm sorry it's been so long since I've posted, just so much life in the way! Between work and family I haven't had much time to play. :( Today I did get in to make this card for a very special little girl who loves Twilight too. She is the daughter of DD #1's bff and a little cutie pie. So of course I had to pull out my Edward stamp, sentiment stamps from Crafty Sprouts, DCWV pattern paper, Recollection card stock, Stickles, Stampin' Up colored pencils and ink, and American Craft glitter ribbon. I have been trying to perfect the Edward's "glitter" and still not sure I like this one. Guess I need to keep trying!! ;) Looks like I need to work on my picture taking too, sorry these are so dark. Well, this is just a shorty tonight, but I want to thank you for stopping by. Have a great week!
