I found this plain jane large clip at Hobby Lobby (again with the clearance aisle) for .50 cents! I just had to figure out something to do with it! So I came up with this! I made a "cardsister" card holder with it! I haven't remembered to use it yet-it looks so pretty decorating my craft room-but, soon...really soon.
I think the paper is from My Minds Eye. Blinged it with some Tim Holtz and the usual cast of characters. I think this is going to work out just fine...

I was playing around with some kraft paper a few weeks ago and came up with these cards. I used October Afternoon's 5 & Dime (8x8) paper pack. I really liked the paper in that one so I was really glad when Hobby Lobby put it in the clearance aisle! $4 (normally $9.99) for the pack! Gotta love a bargain like that! Of course my family and friends will tell you that anything with "clearance/sale/half-price" in the title will get me everytime!!

I'm a little behind the times, but I tend to stay there! I saw these here a while back and really thought they were super cute! I wanted to bring a little gift to my daughter when we go and visit her, so I picked up these small frames at Hobby Lobby and turned them into pin cushions! So easy!

This is my little dog, Trixie. She is a Westie and a real cutie. She loves these squeeky toys. She actually has several of these colored squeeky (ear piercing!) balls-they are all in the toy basket. She has never had two of them out at the same time. A real dilemma...Which one to chew...orange? Maybe green? Hmmmm this is quite a problem. This is also a dog with way too much time on her paws. Maybe I could teach her to do the laundry.

OK, I didn't have anything to post tonight. I did make this little book a few days ago and I do think it's kinda cute. I just love to re-cover stuff...it's relaxing. Not as good as being on the beach with a Pina Colada relaxed, but still...

This is a journal I made with a lot of Tim Holtz product. The "journal" die on the side-used on the book and then again on a page from an old book, then layered over the die cut. Lots of stamping, more die cuts (cage), tickets, chain, clip, etc. I also used Prima flowers, butterflies and swirls. The paper is either TH or MMY-I can never remember to write this info down! It is interesting, isn't it?

This is the shadow box I made for my Dad for Father's Day. This was from all three of his kids, I just put it together. This is just a small fraction of the life he had in the Army National Guard. We (I mean my Mom) is always finding things that need to go in a place to celebrate his working life. This is it. Mom has already found some things to add to the box and there are some things we are on the lookout for. She'll find them...and then we might need another shadow box!

Gotcha with that title, right? I haven't posted in a while and I have tried to get better about that so I found this card that I had forgotten about. I am working on some more projects, so hopefully soon I will be back with something fun!

Isn't this a beautiful card? My daughter Katie made this for my Mother's Day card! She is such a talented little card maker! So many textures and colors! I LOVE IT! She mailed this card to me with my gift-a Pandora Charm! It is beautiful, too! I Love You, Katie!! Thank you so much!

I found the rose ribbon at Hobby Lobby and thought it was so pretty. I have it in brown and black also. This white ribbon can be easily spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist or Glimmer Glam. The Glimmer Glam I picked up at my favorite LSS, CRAFT CROSSING...although she isn't really local to me...she's about 300 miles away! Anyway, if you happen to be in Gonzalez, Texas, you might just swing by and check her out! It's worth the drive, trust me!

One of my biggest fans (thanks Mom) sent me a link of a lady that was making these for sale as a fund raiser. She didn't have the really cute cards that I made to put them on, but I did get the idea from her. These are metal washers that have been covered in patterned paper, covered in glossy accents, have been strung with twine and finished with a cute little bead. How easy is that? I had so much fun making them that I now have about twenty of them. These are necklaces, but they could easily be contorted into key chains or book marks. Think these may have go to the church fund raiser...

This is a card that I made with an old stamp and a new stamp. The flower stamp is the old one and the HB stamp is the new one. I love that ribbon so much that I only use it on special cards and projects. This card is for my oldest daughter's birthday. Her birthday was in April. I'm a little late...

I so love making these! They are so neat for dropping in your purse or keeping in the car. OK, so I don't do any of that. I just like to make them and give them to my friends. THEY drop them in their purses and put them in their cars...

I bought this box over a year ago. My sis got one too. I'm sure she has very nicely finished her's and it has been put to good use. She is usually way ahead of me on this kind of stuff! Mine however, has just now been completed. It is pretty cute. I put my colored rose ribbon in it and some extra stuff like stickles and clear buttons.

This is another one of Michaels $1 books. I just love these little books, so cheap and easy to re-cover! The paper is from the paper studio and the die is from sizzix.

I found these on a blog called the greenbeans crafterole. OK, not THESE specifically, but ones just like 'em! You should visit her blog, it is really cool! I would like to personally thank my Mom for supplying these gift cards. Scrappin' Sister gave me a hand full the other day and I need to get them made up!

This is the card made by my next Guest Blogger, Scrappin' Sister! You need to know that there is a story behind this card...
Oh, for the love of crazy friends...OK, here is the story. On Wednesday, Scrappin' Sister, Sassy Sister and Cardsister were hanging out at Hob Lob. We walked by the aisle where all the feathers and boa's were hanging. We noted that they had some really cute and pretty feathers. That's when it happened. I knew when the words came out of her mouth that this would be a challenge and Scrappin' Sister never walks away from a crafty challenge. Well, Sassy Sister (and this is only ONE of the many reasons she got this name) said, "You know, Mom, I bet you could use those green feathers as leaves on a tree..." Of course, the rest is history. We now have the cutiest card ever with green feathers as leaves. I hope that Sassy Sister never challenges her to use food on a card...unless it's chocolate!
