Pretty in Pink

Becky has 2 boys, so pink is really not in her color scheme....However, I thought a little "hot" pink would be good and of course some black and white!!!!! What else goes better with pink.... This is one of those Target $1 spot specials BUT you know how they sneak in the $2.50 ones, well this fell into that category. But all and all it turned out cute. The flower is from a Hostess set in the Spring catalog.

Connie's Birthday

I made this for a friends birthday the end of January. Have been using a different camera, so it was never uploaded...So Happy Belated!!!

Red and White Polka Dots

This was a package I put in the mail to Becky this past week. She mailed me something similar, so I duplicated it and sent it back to her. And it was so fun to do. So it included the photo "suitcase", photo jumbo paper clip, a pencil and a vase with red daisies and a thank you card. It looked pretty cute sitting here and several people wanted it while I was getting it finished to mail to her.

This is a card for a girl graduate from West High. I added the flower to "girly" it up some. Its April 18th and I have gotten 2 graduation announcements already.

Go Bears! Here is the West High Graduation Gift Card I made this morning. This bear and claw matches West High so well, I will get lots of use out of it. BUT I can't tell you where it came from cause I no longer remember.... SU More Mustard and black with non SU black and gold spotted paper. Magnets from Basic Grey, black embossing and gold brads.

Happy Friends

This card came home with my husband last night from his secretary. It is so cute and I know my photos do it no justice. It is dimensional when it sits alone.

Class of 2008

This is a graduation card I made for a student from the "other" school across town. However, I thought if was very girlish and fun. I will post West High's "gold and black" cards as I get them made.

A Good Friend

Before the new giraffe stamp gets set aside, I thought I would make a "friend" card for Becky to thank her for the great stuff she shares. I loved the Cuttlebug dots with this guy. So I used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and a non SU pink with a touch of Celery. Inside says....easy to spot.

Happy Birthday Notebooks

These are for a friend with a birthday this month. Its a "no gift" lunch, but how can I resist. These notebooks come through once again. This one I also added the post notes on the inside cover. Also thought they would make good graduation additions with a gift pocket added and some $$$$. What grad can remember everything with a note?

Post It Notes

I mailed this to a friend of mine....can we have to many note pads? I know if I don't write it down, its gone. Now, where is my notepad? Can you relate? I know you can! This is yet another post it pad and I love how it turned out.

This is a calendar I bought in December, mainly to use the calendar part on another project. That didn't get off the ground, so decided I better make use of it before the year is gone. So I embellished it with ribbons and it is pretty cute.

Black and White Surprise

Maybe this should be called...."Its all about Brit".....Today, yet another package arrived from my dear friend in Idaho. I was so excited to get it open. On the top was a beautiful card, you can see it on her blog (inkingidaho.blogspot.com). It is round with flowers, very pretty. Anyway, peeling away the layers was this wonderful frame, zebra binder clips (of course I loved them), little plastic jars that stack, magnet snaps, and two catalogs. I wish I got this kind of mail everyday. It was all very thoughtful and I adore it! Can't wait to get something made with the magnets and send it off to her. Thanks for the fun Becky. Ps. This is so much prettier in real life....the black has pattern and depth and details that you dont see. Double click and make it bigger to get a real look....

Initial Notebooks

This is an order for a friend of mine. She asked if I would make these notebooks "cute" to send to each of her daughters and grand daughters. They are the $1 notebooks from Michael's. I added the matching flowers, mini pens, and embellished them with ribbons. I thought for the price, they turned out very cute.

Family Time

I got a package in the mail with so many awesome, wonderful items that Becky made for me, so it was time to get something off to her. I had her email these photos so I could produce something that matches her home and tied in to stamping.

Its a Girl

My neighbor has a friend who is a new gramma, she is also a Stampin Up Demonstrator; so the pressure was on to make a really cute card for her new 1st grand baby.
The Giraffe is from Great Impressions. I used the Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits to color this (that seems to be my favorite thing these days) on Lovely Lilac CS, the pink is non SU. Giraffe is layered on Certainly Celery and Black CS. To hard to see, but the background is little flowers stamped with Lovely Lilac. Cuttlebug embossing and the flower punch were also included. Added the embellishements...."Its a Girl" ribbon, silver cord, dots and dashes with black and black brads and you have a completed card.
