Things that make me smile!

One of my very favorite things (other than my CTMH stamps) is my pink heart bike. Kent bought it for me a year and a half ago for my birthday and I love it.

I am fortunate enough to be spending the weekend in Seaside, Florida. Today, I woke up and I rode my bike 13 miles. WOOOHOO ME! I have never had a bike that has made me so happy and that has made me WANT TO RIDE!

At the end of the ride, I cycled to the beach and snapped a few photos. I just had to share. Hope everyone's weekend has been as grand as mine!

Creative Hugs,

Scrapbooking Emergency!

Wow... I have been busy. Last weekend, I worked a 3 day crop in Alabama. Upon returning home from the crop, I found out my Dad was in the hospital. I packed up the dogs, (and Kent) and went to Pensacola for a few days to stay with my Mom. Dad was released from the hopital is doing well. But, when I got home and back to the office, I had work piled up to my eyeballs. I was so stressed out. Then I said... "I know what I need" and I called my dear friend Debbie. I told her it was a SCRAPBOOKING EMERGENCY! She rushed over and we spent the day in Tina's Stamp Pad, scrapbooking! It felt so good. I worked on photos from my day in Belgium. I finished 6 pages yesterday. WOOHOOO! I hope you enjoy them! I used one of my all time favorite paper packets...Emporium! Love it, love it, love it!

What a difference a highlight makes!

What a difference a highlight makes? I am posting this silly photo because a dear friend "DARED" me!

I always speak the truth and that goes for hair highlighting. When your hair is dark and the roots are showing, you feel awful. Add a little bottle blonde and you feel like a new woman!

I leave tomorrow for a crop in Huntsville Alabama. I am so excited as it is going to be fun, fun, fun. If you are in the area, look me up. If you want more info about the show go to! Hope to see you this weekend!

Fun, fun, fun!

It's almost Valentines Day... and my cards are made! They are SWAYING CARDS!

I have been MIA! I had a 3 day crop from January 29- 31st and as soon as it was over, I got very sick. I finally went to the doctor yestereday and found out I had walking phonomenia! YUK! I have orders to stay home and rest so I can get well. It has been 2 weeks and I am going stir crazy. I couldn't stand it any longer, so I went to into the Stamp Pad and started creating Valentines Day Cards! I thought they turned out cute so I wanted to share them with you!

The cards shown above are swaying cards. The heart actually moves back and forth. The swaying cards are very fun to make and everyone enjoys receiving them. I would love to share the directions with you!

The recipe for the cards are:

X7107b That's Amore Paper Packet
D1343 Love Language Stamp Set
Inks: Tulip, Blush, Garden Green and Crystal Blue (each card is slightly different)
Glitter (blue bird)
Sparkles (bird feathers)
Pop Dots (circle) We currently carry foam squares. I used my old 3 D Pop Dots. Foam Squares should work too!

Step by step Directions:

1. Cut a circle in the middle of your card using the Coluzzle Cutting System.
2. Cut a strip of paper, the same color as the base of the inside of your card 1" x 5 1/2". Fold it in half and place a penny on the folded side.

3. Use a glue dot to secure the other end of the strip. Attach two Pop Dots on the outside of the strip!

4. Put the pop dots through the hole of the card and attach the heart. WHOOOHOOO... now your heart moves from side to side.

Simple, cute and fun!
