Oh Turkiye...

Oh Turkiye...

We shell be together soon...well, I guess two more months.  It seems like an eternity away really, but I know time will go faster.  I made this cute card using a fun stamp from Hero arts and of course, some great Turkish lace.

Celebrate Family

 I can't believe we are at the end of March already.  Here's a sweet card using a stamp from Lili of the Valley. They make the most the adorable little elephants.  I just had to get this set (it comes with two other little elephant images). It's just perfect for cards like this.  Don't you love the yellow turkish lace?

Guest Designer Janis

Here's a beautiful card that I received from Janis this holiday season.  I wish you could see all the beautiful shimmer on it.  I don't this picture does it justice at all.  It's so lovely in person.  The ornaments are so sparkly too and the boarder is a lovely gold.  Thank you Janis.

Sharing this card that I made using a kit from the Paper Loft today.  It basically allows you to take 2 sheets of 12x12 paper and create 10 different cards from it!  it's pretty cool.  I took a class at the last scrapbook convention, and we had a blast.  I totally recommend it.

"Never walk when you can fly {but still tie your shoelaces}"  What a great quote for this adorable image from Kinda Cute by Patricia and this stunning lace from Turkiye!   YUM to both.  I used a blue polka dot card to give a space theme look.  I adore Patricia's images, look her up!

I'll be there for you

Doesn't this sentiment remind you of that theme song from FRIENDS?  I know that's the first thing that pops into my I am going to have that song playing in my head all day long.   I thought this cat from KatzelKrafts was just TOO cute. I had to get him.  He's just perfect for the cat contest HERE.

Got Bones?

Here's the cutest dog from Penny Black.  I added a home made sentiment to him, Got Bones?  TOO funny.  I think he is just perfect.    I also put on a bunch of bone confetti from Recollections.  Though now thinking, putting this cute dog inside a shaker card with the bones would have also been just adorable!
