What The Cluck??!!

Good morning crafty friends,
I am laughing this morning because of this card- 
I HAD to make it, I have been saving it for a while now and
decided it was perfect for my gf's birthday. I mean she is turning the BIG 3-0!
Honestly I could not hep but make a FUNNY and fun card
and I knew I had this Kanban Crafts Wobbler (out of business now)
- and I could NOT resist.
Everything was sweet and nice except this! LOL
I printed and added the sentiments. 
 And of course I had to add the sentiment inside because my friend insisted
(ok she really just suggested it and I flew away with it).
 I added the BIG 3-0 to the eggs because let's face it. It's FRACKIN hilarious! 
Anyways it totally made her laugh so mission accomplished! LOL
I used the beautiful Ribbon's Unlimited ribbon to jazz it up and my Xyron to
adhere to pieces. All fun stuff! :)
The eggs are where I put her age...I am just happy she had a giggle! :)

Anyways Happy Tuesday- off to create!

Kindness in Crafting and Blessings in Life~

Good morning friends, 
I sat down this weekend after a baptism I attended and was
digging through old supplies from companies I worked for in the past
I was feeling soft and nostalgic and ran across this Kanban goodness. 
 I decided to make this card. 
When I begin crafting I ran across amazingly KIND people and I ran
across amazingly CRUEL people- some that welcomed me with open arms
and some that ridiculed and were beyond mean to me. 
I think it really shaped the kind of crafter I wanted to be. 
Always understanding and uplifting of others no matter how small the project
or how new the crafter. You know it all comes from the heart and it inspired me 
to make this card. One simple word that means so much- KINDNESS.
 When I see projects I just see the love and joy in the hands- 
sometimes it doesn't have to be on the cover of the next magazine
that is dying out- sometimes it's just that small touch and smile when you
open it up and see that someone took the time to make it...
just for YOU. I would encourage you to leave some kindness today. 
This card is going to be left at my local library for a stranger to find and use. 

I also snapped a couple photos of a real southern baptism we
attended this weekend of my friend Melody's and Daniels son. 
 Never been to a river baptism- it was beautiful.
Anything with family- can't miss it. 
Hope you have a wonderful Monday- full of kindness and love. 
Thanks for stopping by my friends! :)

~Globe Sun Catcher With Sheer Ribbon~

 It's finally Friday- 
what a long week so far, thankful today it's almost over!

We have been fighting for over a year now to get my son
diagnosed and it's been a long battle this week. Anyways...on to 
more pleasant craftiness (what I am best at). 

I created this vintage style globe sun catcher using Ribbons Unlimited
Sheer ribbon- you know I am a new design team member over there
and I honestly LOVE IT! Be sure to check out the instructions 
on their blog and their pages. 
I also used Clearsnap copper inks and a Connie Crystal suncatcher.
 I got these dictionary pages from some place and damned if
I can remember the name! It's driving me crazy!
Anyways hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends.
Happy Friday to you all and thank you for stopping by!

the perfect time to share my latest project with you- the new stamp set from

How cool is this set? I LOVE IT!

 You can see all 3 of my projects on the Avocado Arts Blog today as well. 

This weekend was amazing- we started out Friday night headed to Nashville

I had never been to downtown Nashville at night- it was so much fun to 
see all the live bands! I loved it- we were out until 3am...I was beat! LOL

Then on Saturday morning I headed to my girlfriends house to 
help her with her baby shower and then see her adorable boy turn 2. 

Then off for a BBQ with our friends...
So a busy but solid weekend....

hope to see you then!

Flashback Friday!

Hey there, happy Friday! 

I thought I would throw in a Flashback Friday today because
I was organizing photos and going through old pics and found these
photos- this one from 4 years ago! 
*where has the time gone*

A photo free layout using Jenni Bowling & Cosmo Cricket-
Not gonna lie I love me some JB and CC!

3 years ago in the summer- these homemade DRINK umbrellas- 
these actually ended up on television...I mean seriously how fun.
I didn't think anything of them but everyone loved them. 
And two years ago one my first publications- this fun BEE HAPPY card
which has a super funny story- so the original card I made I had given
away to Andrew's BOSS at work. 

Not kidding 4 days after they asked for it to be published...
I was in a scramble to find all the items and re-create the card. 
I TRIED to talk hubs into asking for it but he just said no LOL
What's a girl gotta do to get pubbed? LOL
Anyways a fun walk down memory lane- love looking into the past.

Happy Friday my friends!
