And I still Missed the Birthday!

I was so far ahead of the game... and I was proud! I made this card about 2 weeks ahead of time for my friend's birthday! WOOO HOOO! I put it in my file with the other cards that are finished and just waiting to be sent and then..... nothing! Work and life happened and her birthday came and went! I am going to send it out anyway with a very sincere apology and hope that it will still put a smile on her face!

I used a La La Land stamp called, "Dress Up Marci" and Papertrey Ink paper along with some adorable embellishments that I picked up along the way.


I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

With Love

This past Friday while everyone else at the crop worked on wonderful scrapbook pages, Michele and I made a few cards for Valentine's Day. We had such an incredible time! Watching all the ladies trying to figure out where to put the pictures of their new born grandchildren and watching the busy moms that are finally getting a minute away from their children ... only to be pouring over pictures of them! :) 

So we sat down at the table at the end of The Paper Trail and put together cards for our friends. The room was filled with love and laughter... so how could the cards not be? :)


The card will be entered into the following challenges:

Enjoy the Journey

Life gets so busy with the everyday things that I often find myself forgetting to be thankful for, mindful of, and enjoying the everyday things! It's the everyday things that make life worth living and make the journey worth remembering! I made this little mini album and am going to fill it with all the everyday things that make my journey such an amazing joy!


I will be entering this mini album into the following challenges:

Lucky Love

If you have been lucky enough or blessed enough to find love in this world, embrace it! In a world where hate and cruelty sometimes seem more common than kindness and humanity, IF you have a chance to love someone take it!

"My Friend"

Rae moved to Georgia several years ago and I miss her smile immensely! Just thinking about the words, "my friend," makes me think of her and her beautiful, easy smile! She is one of those people that uses "my friend" in place of your name.... The conversation wouldn't begin with "Hey Michele!" It always .... and I mean always .... begins with "Hello my friend!" And when she says it.... You know you have a friend... not a passing through friend... but a life time one! 

Rae... I love you my friend!


I made this card at the Paper Trail Store crop this weekend. If you have a chance to stop by and browse around her online store, I am sure that Karen would be very appreciative!

Love Grows On Trees!

We may not have had a lot of "things" when I was growing up but there was no shortage of love! Looking back it seems like "money doesn't grow on trees," was my parents mantra. :) Obviously love did grow on trees.... because we sure had plenty of that!

This is a simple card that I put together during a crop this weekend at The Paper Trail Store this past Friday. If you live in the Fayetteville, North Carolina area or plan to visit stop by and see Karen I am sure she will have just what you are looking for! If you are too far away for a trip to the store .... no worries! You can shop online here!

I used the Stampabilities "Heart Tree" stamp, Papertrey Ink paper, and some bakers twine. WAY easy card but I think it turned out beautiful!
