This is another set of cards I made at Katie's last Stamp-A-Stack. They are very patriotic. I think they are adorable even with the simple layout. I did change them a little so they aren't all sitting the same direction. You can see that in the picture. I also used different paper and ribbon on them. The only thing I wish I would have added was some glitter. :) Enjoy!

This is the first set of cards I have to show you from the most recent Stamp-A-Stack at Katie's. These are some butterfly cards we made. This is a picture of all of them. I will show you each of them individually next. They all have different papers and sentiments on them.
We made a bunch of really cute cards this time. I wanted to share this one because it's finally Spring and we had snow this morning. I needed something to make me think green grass and flowers! The snow didn't last long and the sun was so nice this afternoon. But I still can't wait for butterflies! Enjoy!

These are some new earrings I made. I was missing a couple elements in my earring collection. So I have remedied that. I made a pair of black earrings. They aren't too long and are really cute. I love the way they turned out. I wear so much black that I can't believe I didn't make these sooner. :) Also, the large part at the bottom came with three of those circles. So I have a third I have ready to add to a necklace chain for a whole set! Enjoy!

First...I am not pregnant and neither is anyone I know. :) Second, this is a card I got in the mail from Katie. She made it while I was at her house making Christmas cards and I was so jealous she was making cards. I loved the colors and you will notice that the paper is from the same set as THIS card that I posted the other day. The funny thing, is she sent it to me just because I liked the card. I laughed when I got it in the mail because I knew Katie sent it to me just to make me smile. That's what friends are for! Thanks, Katie! :)

These are some earrings that I made that are similar to THIS pair that I showed you recently. I made them the same way, but the look is very different. I thought these were funky a bit different. Also...these are the same size and shape even though they don't look like it in the picture. Enjoy!

I made a pair of earrings for my friend, Ann, at work. It was recently her birthday and we share a love of earrings. She is always admiring mine and I do the same to her.
This is the pair I made her. I thought these colors were nice because they could go with black or brown (an essential thought when I am making earrings for myself) and also with the blue, they would go well with jeans, too! Even though we can't wear them to work. They can be weekend earrings. ;)
And this is what they look like up close. I love the multi-colored bead. I think it looks so cool.
This is a picture of how I gave them to her. I used to put earrings on a note card and stamp my business name on it. Now that I am not using that business anymore, I thought it would be fun to put them inside the card.
And this is a picture of the outside of the card and you can see the earrings on the inside. It was so fitting that the stamp was a blonde girl, because so is my friend. She asked if that was supposed to be her, and of course I said yes! I had made this card a while back, but knew I had it in my stash and wanted to give it to her.
The earrings were a huge hit and she showed them to a ton of people around the office. You really know someone liked your gift when they willingly show it to others and that made me feel good. Even after being out of the crafting loop for a while, it's nice to know I still have a little bit of creativity in my blood! :) Enjoy!

This is a pair of earrings I made. I saw the pieces in various sections at my local craft store. The outer circle was for a necklace, but I saw no reason I couldn't turn them into earrings. I wanted something inside them, and I came across the circle on the inside. They were a perfect fit. I love them.
Something you need to know about me is that I love big earrings. I love earrings in general. I have so many pairs, but I still see ones I have to have or think of something that is lacking my my collection. I have made a number of pairs of earrings lately, so there will be more I'll be sharing with you in the future. :) Hopefully, no one gets sick of me sharing them!

I promise this is the last of the Christmas cards I have to post until next year! I just wanted to be sure I posted them before it got *TOO* far into the new year!
This is the set of this style of card that I brought home with me.
The following pictures show the outside of the cards. I did them in two different ways. I couldn't decide what I liked best. Note the adorable little sparkly crystals on the card. they were quite hard to attach, but I love the unique touch they add. I also dabbed a bit of ink over them to make them stand out a little more. I think it looks like they are glowing! :)
The next pictures are close-ups of the inside. I used a ton of different snowflakes and didn't care much about the order in which I used them. I just wanted to have snowflakes on the insides along with the saying. Some people chose to put the phrases on the outside of the cards.
And I am sorry I do not know the names of the stamps that have been used in recent posts. I am so out of touch with the names of stamps these days. But if there is something you want to know about the items that were used to make these cards, please ask and I will find out for you! Enjoy!

These are some cards I made a while back at Katie's last Stamp-A-Stack. (I just went to another one, so I will have some new cards to show you soon!) We recently had a bunch of snow here (Minnesota) and I the snow reminded me of these cards we made. I sadly, have one more set of Christmas-like cards to post that I had forgotten about. This is a picture of the group of gift card holders I brought home.
These are pictures of the inside of the card. I don't know the measurements off the top of my head at which these cards were folded, but I could find out if you really wanted to know!
Finally, these are close-ups of the two different styles of gift card holders I did. I made two of each of these. I couldn't decide which color I liked best for the main card, so I made two of each! And the felt snowflakes and the sparkly brads in the center of them add the perfect touch! Enjoy!
