This was a card I made for my cousin who just graduated. I got the idea from a couple cards I saw online. I added glitter to the hats and to the word "future". I also used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder in the background. I think it turned out really cute. I think I might even make another one for our neighbor who has his grad part this weekend...but I will probably eliminate the ribbon for him and not add glitter! :)

After all of those cards I have been showing you, I thought I should show you what the whole set looks like that I gave to my mom. I also made the little bag for it. (My, how I love making those little things! They are great holders for a set of cards for someone! I like to put about 6 in there.) So there you have it! Enjoy!

This little fish card is so fun. I really love the pastel colors in this one. The sentiment says: "Just dropping you a line..." and the "g" is a hook. So I tried to make it look like someone was fishing for this cute little guy! I also stamped the bubbles from the set in a few places, added glitter to them and a few clear baubles for dimension. There is some glitter on the fish's body, too. Enjoy!

I like this card. I think I like it mostly for the saying. This sentiment says: "A wise man once said...Follow your dreams, except for the one where you're at work in your underwear." How funny! I laughed when I read it and so did my mom. This was in the set of cards that I gave her. I think this one got the most laughs! I also like how the two colors of baubles look on the card. They go well with the adorable dot paper and add a little "oompf" to the card! :) Enjoy!

This is such a sweet little image and sentiment. The sentiment says: "Today I caught myself smiling. Then I realized...I was thinking of you." I think this could be used for so many occasions. Who wouldn't want to get this little bunny!? If you say you wouldn't...I know you are only fooling yourself! The pattern paper really sparkles and I added a bunch of glitter to the bunny's shirt and the corners of the scallop square. Enjoy!

HAHA! How funny is this image? It really cracks me up! I could see my grandma doing something like this. I don't think she would have actually gone surfing, but she would have posed with one and said something like this! The sentiment inside says: "You're only a kid once, but you can be young for a lifetime!" I think we should all live by this mantra! Enjoy!

I think this image is so cute! I love the paper in the background. I think this card turned out pretty well! The sentiment says: "Friends are the chocolate chips in the cookies of life." I just love the little bear (I think that's what he is) in this image. I also like the look of the brown baubles to tie it together. In hindsight, if I had more time, I would have made him fuzzy with some Fun Flock. Maybe next time! Enjoy!

So, I have made a few recently that I gave to my mom for a late Mother's Day gift. So for the next few days I'll show them to you! At least I have some cards to show you (although I warn that they are fairly basic because I was limited on time).
This is probably my least favorite of the cards I made, so I thought I would get it out of the way and show you this one first. I think the image is cute, but I just wasn't real happy with it. I should have stopped after stamping the sentiment once...I think the three look silly on here. But my mom thought it was cute. I also stamped a little cactus that came in the set on the inside of the card. (I think the cactus was my favorite part!) Enjoy! There will be another one tomorrow!

This is the pen I gave to my friend. I had this purple piece of wood sitting around and it screamed "Katie" when I saw it. So I made this pen for her. I think it turned out really nice. She has informed me that she's going to use it as her new "purse pen" and is confident she'll get many compliments! I am hoping to make a couple more wood things soon for some other gifts. So maybe you'll get to see some more soon! Enjoy!

This is a little goodie bag I put together for Katie. She's such a great friend, I had to be sure I gave her something worthy! She has been reading more these days, so I made her some more bookmarks (bellas of course), some earrings she requested (which are similar to the ones I made myself in THIS post), a purple pen (which I will show closer pictures of tomorrow), and I made the bag as well. She loved it and I was happy to give her some fun things! Enjoy!
