Noah's First Birthday Shaped Card

Last weekend was my friend's son's first birthday!
I will admit that this card was an after thought. I remembered to order the gift and then completely forgot to make a card until the morning of the party! 

I have come to realize that I am absolutely the worst at crafting baby cards! I have no creativity at all and I'm lacking that cutesy mind. How unfortunate! 
Have a wonderful labor day weekend!

Clear Pink Quilled Flowers Congrats Card

I can't believe the summer is over again. Many colleges began class today.

This pink congrats card is not made on your traditional card stock paper. It's created on acetate to make it a clear card! It was so difficult to keep it clean as the static really likes to attract anything and everything!!
I started gluing it with tape runner, but this was really unattractive due to the streaks that it created. Instead, I had to use a spray adhesive. I find it much harder to adhere same size sheets this way.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi all--

It has been quite a while since I last posted. I wanted to let you know that I'm okay! Life has taken over and time quickly sped up. It wasn't a bad thing at all...since my last post, I have started wedding planning--that's right ladies, I got engaged!

My fiance (still getting used to saying that) surprised me during the least romantic time, at least to me it was--Saturday breakfast on the couch. I wasn't expecting it at all. He got his accomplice--my Cookie cat. She normally loves laps, but wasn't cooperating so he had me go search for something that looked out of place on her. Well everything looked the same. He did such a great job that he even got the collar to match (it worked well because I didn't notice for a day). I finally realized the lettering was different and had to get down on the floor, on my knees to read the message. Well what do you know...confused girl that I was, I looked up and there he was STANDING with a ring. Can you imagine how lost I was? It was certainly memorable. I'll say that much! 

Anyway, I'm sort of getting used to the idea of planning now. I would like to return to the blogging world more regularly soon--I hope! I miss ya girls!
