Miscellaneous Fun!

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a good week. I have 2 cards to share with you today that I made using Jaded Blossom's Miscellaneous Fun stamp set and the flag die that I think I have used on everything since I got it!! I am loving the ease of that die!!! It is my favorite thing to use right now!!

Now before anyone gets any ideas--these cards have nothing to do with me!! I just made them because I was coloring with my copics and realized (when I was done with the first one!) hey this girl is pregnant!! Haha! So I made them into baby cards! (they were supposed to be 'Cheer up' cards) I hope you enjoy them! :0)

Arrrrgh! A pirate party!

My Godson Carson turned 2 on Wednesday!! We had such a great day today celebrating his birthday! He is such a soft spoken sweet little man-- he will steal your heart in an instant!
He looooooves pirates!! Arrrgh! So it was pretty easy to pick a theme for the party!

I used Jaded Blossom stamps to make these awesome straws! Everyone loved them!! Such a great party favor! I also made toppers for cupcakes and fruit!

I love this kid and we had so much fun today!! I bought him a drum set for his birthday!!!! (his dad wasn't happy but Oh Well!) he loved them!! Here are some pictures from the party!! Enjoy!

I feel the love project-Trinitie

Happy almost Friday everyone! I have been busy this week at my real job and haven't had much of a chance to get my craft on - but I wanted to share with you my submission for this month's I Feel The Love Project over at Funky Cards

I used the Jaded Blossom flag die and a pink paper straw! I also added some Trendy Twine to the paper straw :0) I hope you enjoy my card. Please take a minute to read Trinitie's story. She is going through a lot for a little girl-but you can feel her strength through her smile. She will inspire you and remind you that each day is a gift! :0)

My friend Trish created a card for Trinitie as well. Her card is so pretty!! The pictures don't show how pretty it is in real life! I know Trinitie will feel the love we sent through these cards!

Thank you Madison for introducing me to this beautiful little girl!
