It's Friday already???

Where did the week go? Don't get me wrong, I love that it's Friday but time really is flying by! My friends and I got together earlier this week to get some crafting done and I got absolutely nothing done! I don't know why!!! My mojo was missing as well as most of my supplies! I like to create at home because all my stuff or crap as my husband calls it is within arms reach. I never know what to bring when I go to a friends house. Anyone else have that problem or am I the only one?

Here is something I did get done this week! I love how this turned out and want to make more! I made a shape card for {ippity}'s IHHC8 challenge. I used {ippity}'s Devoted set. My first time using it! I had to order one for myself as I sold my others right away! This is a favorite set! The butterfly was stamped onto shrink plastic.

Because I love making jewelry and have been wanting to do this for some time now, I used a piece of the leftover patterned paper (October Afternoon) to create this charm. I'm not crazy about the leather necklace part though. Instructions for this can be found HERE on SCS!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm working on my H{ippity} Hop blog post for Monday and can't wait to share it with you all! Have a wonderful weekend!

H{ippity} HOP Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! I had a wonderful weekend. Today is gloomy and rainy but that won't keep me from being in a good mood. I get to check out all the wonderful {ippity} blogs today!

This past weekend as I was checking out my favorite blogs I came across an adorable card made by Katy and decided to try the same sketch: Limelight Papercrafts Sketch 39. It also said to use canvas and I stamped "Happy Birthday" from {ippity}'s Just wanted to say set on it. I was also able to use up some of my scraps! This card is simple and sweet. Don't you agree?

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Yeah Baby it's Friday!!! Friends with Flair!!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping in to say hello! I have a lot to show you so I am going to keep my words short and sweet. I've been busy this shortened week. We just got back from our amazing cruise on Tuesday. Loved every single minute of it and we can't wait to do it again! Here's a picture of Dan and I in Nassau Bahamas. I am looking forward to scrapping my pictures as soon as they come in!
On to the good stuff. I've been busy with the Valentine cards! Just love heats so these come easy to me. This first card was using Sketchy Thursdays Second Chance Challenge. Stamp set is Unity's Unforgettable Moments Scrap Kit.

Close up:

This card was for {ippity}'s Challenge IHHC7 to use black, a neutral and one other color. I used black, white and red. Stamps used here are from {ippity}: Life's Little Moments

I loved this style card so much that I made a mini using my favorite "Kraft" cardstock!
And last but not least this is another mini using lots of hearts and {ippity}'s Straight from the heart set.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope I didn't bore you with all my pics! Have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to check out what you all created!

Hip{ippity}Hop I just can't stop!

Hello!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I did and am even more excited about this up coming weekend! My hubby and I are going on a three day Royal Caribbean cruise to the Bahamas! We are so excited. It's our very first cruise and I'm so looking forward to the warmer weather!

Ok here is what you came for, my {ippity} cards! I was a busy crafter this past weekend. My hubby watched football and I created! Yeah! Guess what else I did??? I submitted two cards to PaperCrafts Magazine! My first time. Wish me luck! If you haven't submitted its not to late! The deadline is tonight. Get your cards in!
My first card is a Love/Valentine card. I am teaching an {ippity} class to a group of ladies later this week and this is one of the cards we'll be making. Easy peasy! I usually do one easy card and one with a new technique. I haven't decided what card/technique I'll be doing yet. Any ideas? Suggestions?

This next card is a Happy Birthday card. Again, Easy Peasy! I love this Basic Grey paper but always have a hard time trying to use it for some reason!
