Happy Birthday

Teenage boys are so hard to make cards for.  My grandson turns 15 in August, so I'm working ahead a bit. 


Since it won't be long before he will be thinking about drivers ed, I decided to use this cute bug and some traffic signs.

With Sympathy

While I'm not in need of a Sympathy card right now, I do like to keep some on hand just in case.


I was playing around with the Text and Texture Roses stamp.  This one I wasn't sure if I liked when I first saw it, and I was slow off the mark to buy it.  But, after seeing some of the cards the DT made with it and other crafty friends, I took the plunge.  I thought it paired well with the beautiful The Sweet Life roses stamp set.

Happy Birthday, Logan

This was such a fun card to make.  I was able to use three new sets from PTI.  Aren't those turtles adorable!


This card is for my great-nephew, Logan.  He will be celebrating his first birthday, and I thought he would like the sweet little sea creatures.

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

I was so excited to find this beautiful stamp set called Guiding Light from PTI of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.  We were fortunate to be able to spend our vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and were able to see this lighthouse up close and personal.  It is amazing!

Happy Anniversary

I had a few minutes this morning and pulled out some of my new sets that I haven't had time to play with. 


I needed an Anniversary card for my nephew and his wife, and this was a quick and easy one.  I love the Bold Borders and these fun flowers.
