Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July my crafty friends!  I just love the 4th of July.  I love celebrating America's Independence Day, and as a Navy Veteran, I am very thankful to those who have served our country, and especially thankful to those that are currently serving.

My mom had recently asked me to make some treat holders for her co-workers for the holiday.  You know me, I LOVE to make treat holders.  I made about 15 of these.  We went to Zurcher's to buy the colored sixlets.  Yum!  I used the Cardz TV Stamps "Happy Days".  For the "celebrate," I used one of the stamps that was in Stampin' Up's July Paper Pumpkin Kit.  The papers are from a 6 x 6 Doodlebug paper pad called Patriotic Parade.  I just love Doodlebug, especially since the company is right here in Utah.  It's so awesome how many companies are here in Utah like Stampin' Up DCWV, WRMK, American Crafts, Provo Craft, SEI, and Close to My Heart.  So awesome!

Well my friends, I hope you have a safe and wonderful July 4th!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I really hope to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,

I'm So Glad

Hello my crafty friends!  With the storms we've had the last few days my internet has been giving me fits!  I hope the issues have resolved and I can get this post finally out.  Just as I was typing this it's telling me an error occurred while trying to save.  Grrrr.  I'll make this post short and sweet.  Anyway, this is my Father's Day card I made for my Dad.  The stamps are from the "Father's Day" and "Going in Circles" Cardz TV Stamps sets.  The L-O-V-E   Y-O-U was stamped using a Recollections alphabet set.

This card was made for a friend of mine to give to her Dad for Father's Day.  The stamps are from Stampin' Up.

I will close now and hopefully publish this post.  Like I said I have tried many times to write this post.  Internet can be so infuriating sometimes.  Well, I hope you have a wonderful day!  I would love to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,

Party Hardy!

Hello my crafty friends!  I know I've been MIA for a while.  It's been crazy!  Sorry.  I hope to get in more crafty time.  I wanted to share a card I made for a dear friend who is visiting from Germany.  She is an amazing, giving, and caring friend.  Her birthday was yesterday and I made her this card.

The papers are from a 6 x 6 Doodlebug stack called Sugar Shoppe.  It has lots of fun papers for birthdays.  I used the Owl Builder punch from Stampin' Up.  The owl is on an action wobble.   I used the Cupcake Builder punch from Stampin' Up.  The stamps are from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Good Times."  This set has lots of great birthday sayings.  If you would like to make a card like this, here is a tutorial a friend and I found.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I would love to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,

Mother's Day Projects

Hello my crafty friends!   I hope all of you who are Mom's had a wonderful day yesterday with your families. I know I did.  I just wanted to share a couple of projects I made.  I gave this to my Mom yesterday.  I folds down so it will fit in an envelope.  I just love this Graphic 45 paper.  I was sad when I went to my local craft store and they were out.  The sentiments are from the Cardz TV Stamp set "Mother's Day."

I made this box like the one for the CTV challenge but I used the Mother's Day stamp set instead.  This was for a friend who ordered a card and a treat holder for her Mom.  Below is the card.

This is the card my children gave their Grandma.  I hand stamped on the white cardstock using a Stampin' Up stamp set called Stippled Blossoms.  I just love this set.  It's a double time stamp set and is very easy to use.  The sentiments are also from the "Mother's Day" Cardz TV stamp set.

 I meant to post these yesterday but I was very busy getting things together for a dinner.  I would love to hear what you think of them.  Have a wonderful day!

Lots of Hugs,

My Wonderful Friend

Hello my crafty friends!  I just wanted to share a quick card I made for a wonderful friend.  I don't know what to call this type of card.  I used the Stampin' Up Scallop Tag Topper Punch for a closure.   I have used this fun punch for so many different things,  I love it!
The sentiments I used are from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Heartfelt Wishes."  This is a wonderful set filled with sayings you could use for many types of cards.  I used paper from a paper stack from Stampin' Up called Fresh Prints .  For the banner I used the Banner Framelit set from Stampin' Up.

What do you think?  I hope to hear from you.  Have a great weekend!

Lots of Hugs,
