With Sympathy

Hi everyone. Welcome!! It is my turn to post over on the Pinque Peacock blog and I am sharing a card that I made with you.

My husbands friend at work had a death in the family and DH asked me to make a sympathy card for him. First of all my husband has never asked me to make a card (which made me a little proud that he would ask lol ) and secondly I have never made a sympathy card.  
   I haven't had a lot of crafty mojo lately...I think it decided to take a vacation and forgot to invite me  hehe.  So, I turned to my silhouette to help me whip up a card :) I have some files that I got from Birds Cards blog and I found this  one that I thought was pretty. I got out my paper started cutting and then added a bow and one of the gorgeous pins you can find HERE. I wanted to add just a little hint of color and this pin did the trick. The picture really doesn't do it justice the Pinque Peacock pins are absolutely beautiful!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my creation for today :)
        Have a great and crafty day!!

Hello! I am glad you stopped by today. It is layout challenge time over at Red Carpet Studio challenge blog :D

Our challenge this week is inspired by the movie "Girl with a Pearl Earring" All you have to do to enter this challenge is use pearls on your layout. Easy peasy!! hehe

I have a never ending supply of Disney photos it seems lol... so I have been using up some of my photos from our trips there =)  I absolutely love going to Disney,  but I think I may take waayyyy too many pictures. Aahhhh the woes of a scrapbooker lol. 

 I used my Silhouette for this layout the flower border and the middle accent piece and the word was cut using my sil. I attached all that to my cream background cardstock and added a few flowers from Michaels and some pearls I picked up from A.C. Moore and Viola...I am done lol.
 Since the girls were standing in  front of the Italian building at  Epcot, I thought I would used the Italian word for Hello as my title for the layout:)

Our sponser for this challenge is
SPONSOR: Get Inky! Stamps by Blue Moon Creation
PRIZE: Sample stamp set

Thanks for stopping by , I hope to see your wonderful layouts over at RCS.
Have a great day!!

The oh so beautiful stick pin is from the Pinque Peacock, the flowers are from Hobby Lobby, and Michaels and I got the butterflies from a stash of stuff that was my hubbies grandmothers!  I absolutely love this paper, soo shiny LOL... it is from A.C.

A mother's day card

 Hi! I'm glad you stopped by :) It is my turn to post a project over at Pinque Peacock  and  I have a card to show you using one of the many kinds of fabric buttons that you can get at the Pinque Peacock store:)

Mother's day is approaching and I have actually gotten my Mother's Day cards done! Whoo Hoo. That is a first for me LOL. I am a last minute kind of girl hehe. I bought some paper that I am in love with at A.C. Moore. It is shiny and has  beautiful colors on it. I almost hate to use it. Yes, I am a paper hoarder and I admit it!

I absolutely love the fabric buttons and I can't wait for you to see the ones for the new release!!
Believe me you will want some. Soo cute and adorable. But, that is all I can say. You will have to wait for the release and see for yourself hehe.
Thank you so much for stopping by. You can check out all the wonderful goodies that you can get for your projects HERE at Pinque Peacock.
Have a great day!

Challenge time!

 Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great day in your part of the world :)

It is raining here and looks like it is going to rain for the next few days :(   But, that just means more crafting for me LOL.

Today I have a layout to share with you.  It is the Layout DT's turn this week to post over at Red Carpet Studio and the challenge is inspired by the movie " The Black Swan" all you have to do is  use black on your layout. Super Easy!

My layout is of one of our trips to Disney. I love going to Disney World, guess I am just a big kid at heart.

I saw the mickey mouse paper the other day while at one of my craft stores and thought it was really cute. So I cut a circle out of that layered a collage of various photos from the parks and then put another one of  both my girls at the top. (This one was taken while we were waiting to get one of those characatures of them...hope I spelled that right lol.  Then I added some circles, tabs, tickets and a stamp shape along the top of the collage. I need to add a title, but wasn't really sure what I wanted to put. So, I figured I would just add that in later :)
Our sponser for this challenge is :

The prize is a  $15 gift certificate!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see your layouts over at RCS!
Have a great day!!
