Easy Peasy and a bookmark

Can't much simpler or faster then this... a piece of wallpaper scrap, spray adhesive and cs.

Bookmark going to the hubby... the one he's been using has seen better days. Front and back images. need to find my small tassels and add one to the corner.

Cheers for friends and birthdays

Love my new Cheers border punch... wHether you party like a rock star...

or not... LOL

And a birthday card for my dad. I am demo'ing how to create this card in March with my stamping group that I belong.

Some stamping done

Got to make a few cards last night. Bought some great edging punches the other day at a fabulous price. I hope to use the others today (and post).

Birthday card for an online friend who never forgets anyone's special day...

I got a bunch of Valentine's Day cards done! I havne't done V-day cards in years... I have several of each of the styles below (and some to show the new border punches)...

This is the same card above but showing the detail on the side with the punch.

Bikini Lady and Sock Monkey Party

The bikini lady stamp was given to me by my friend, Shelly... She thought it would look good in my stash. :) As you can see, she fits in nicely and made this card for Shelly as a thank you.

I put Crystal Laquer over the pool water so it really looks cool. Added some cut grass by the sign post that you can fluff the grass up. And Bikini Lady is attached with small pop dots so she is 3-D. Fun, fun.

Sock Monkey is going to a birthday party and so are we later on today. Bethany's friend turns three and we are going to have fun. Added Stickles (glitter) to the hat and cupcake. And the hat is attached with small pop dots so it's 3-D. I hope Kassidy likes her card.
