Hey there friends happy Tuesday,
I received these amazing buttons this week and had to use them
so I grabbed some beautiful Anna Griffin tags and went crazy!
 I used Ribbons Unlimted Dazzle Ribbons and stitched the tags to
it using a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine. 
How fun is this banner? I love it. 
 All the colors and textures make me smile. 
 It's not too big, not too small and used up some leftover Thickers!
Next time you want to make a banner try those old tags
or some new amazing tags! :)

Hey there crafty friends, 
I have another Quick Quotes Guest Designer post today and this time
I decided to make a set of cards- using the beautiful quotes in the 
Calypso papers and embellishments. 
 I also stamped on each card using the PowderPuff Chalking Inks
which I ADORE!
I used them with the Avocado Arts stamp set-
When & Where- (Love those too)
On this last card I even used the beautiful Itty Bitty Boxes
of Vellum Quotes- how handy are these??! I mean serious love!
 Love the colors, love the style....it's such a great company! :) 

Until next time- Keep on creating!

It was the perfect stamp set to play with and I love the results. 
A couple more angles for detailing :)

Good morning crafty friends, 
Hello Tuesday...and hello NEW stamp set! :) 

This new Avocado Arts stamp set called A Mother's Love
is simply amazing. I had to make a joke about Mother's being like Buttons
because it's such an adorable sentiment. :) 
I created this vintage style card using a gift package from a friend
with some Xyron and Quick Quotes.
Check out the blog today for my other cards
This is the full stamp set and trust me YOU NEED IT! I love this. 
Great for Mother's Day coming up. :)
Happy Crafty Tuesday friends!

Mom Brag Post~

Ok this ones not crafty friends :) 
Happy Monday I wanted to share a few photos I took of my son at his 
girlfriends prom this weekend. 
It is his senior year and all those special events are happening. 
I was able to take some shots before they left and I know 
some of you have seen them on Facebook but I wanted to share the rest on my blog. 








Can't believe he is 18 and going to college!
Seems like yesterday he was 2 and started calling me MOMMY
I celebrated his 3rd birthday with him and took on being his mom from
the first time I met him...I am so lucky to have been a part of his life. 

Thanks for indulging my non-craft post today~

A Sun Catcher I created using the Calypso line of paper and embellishments. 
And I do have a step by step tutorial as well!

bird, and press into place. 
 Adhere to bird- and tie coordinating color ribbon through top/ 
 Using Xyron adhesive dots- Roll and attach flourish to bird as shown.
