House Mouse Challenge #39

Whew!! Is it just me or does it take everyone hours to make a card?!! I can't whip one out in 30 minutes or even an hour. Oh, well. I needed to make a birthday card for my Aunt. Not sure exactly how old she will be but I know she's in her 80's. She lives in Florida so I don't get to see her very often. She loves mice so I know she will love the House Mouse stamps. The house mouse challenge for this week is to make a birthday card so I thought I would enter it in the challenge.

I colored the stamp using prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits and I covered the candles with blue glitter glue.

I stamped one of the mouse out twice colored it and raised it with foam dots.
Thanks for looking! Ya'll have a wonderful day!

DVD case cover

Hey! Hope ya'll are having a great day! I cleaned house today and my husband and I cooked hamburgers on the grill today for my son and some of his friends. They were really good (the hamburgers), well the kids were good too, very good kids! Anyway I wanted to show ya'll the DVD case cover I made for the video of my son's pre-school graduation program. The theme was " God's Love Goes Overboard". The kids wore t-shirts with a fish on it and a sailor cap. They were just toooo cute! This is my baby Chance with some of his friends before the program started. He is the 2nd one from the right.

Now I'll show you the DVD case. This is the front:

And this is the inside:

Well, I better go get Chance ready for bed. Ya'll have a wonderful day tomorrow and thanks for looking!

Graduation Card #2

It's SUMMER!! YAY! My kids last day of school was Thursday! My middle son graduated 8th grade and my baby graduated Pre-School! My oldest will be a Junior now! I love having my kids home! The high school graduation isn't until June 5 so I still have time to make a few more cards. Hopefully things will settle down a little now and I can spend more time paper crafting. I really need to work on my scrapbooks! I am soooo far behind! Anyway, we are going to watch the girls Varsity Softball team play today in Lufkin. I wanted to show ya'll the graduation card I made. My boys really like this one a lot. I use orange on the cards because our school colors are black and orange.

I cut the "congrats" using my cricut.

I cut an extra one and cut off the graduation cap and used pop dots for dimension. I made the tassel with embroidery floss. I colored the letters with orange marker and covered it with STICKLES! I use stickles a lot.

I made another pocket for the inside of this card also. I usually give money for graduation, especially for the guys!
Thanks for stopping by and looking. Sorry it's been so long since I've done anything. I'm hoping we will have a very relaxing summer vacation and that I'll have time to do lot's of scrapbooking and card making! Ya'll have a wonderful day!!

Graduation Card 1

TGIF!! I'm ready for the weekend, how about ya'll? I had a little time this evening to finish a graduation card I started last night. I never seem to be able to make one whole card at once. I usually work on it as I have time. Anyway, I need to make about 5 cards this year for graduation. I am going to enter this in the 365 Cards Challenge for Friday. Take a look at my first. Thanks for taking the time to look!

I used stickles to make the 2009 sparkle! I love stickles!!

This is the inside of the card. I made a little pocket to put money in.
Thanks for looking! Ya'll have a wonderful weekend!
The cupcake craft challenge is having a challenge using numbers so I am going to enter this card in it also.
