I used some Vintage cardstock for this card. Spellbinders dies cut Core BEAUTIFULLY!
I used a Grand Scalloped die to create the window.

I was actually inspired by myself  and a card I made earier. I love love
making window cards and new the doily would fit in this shape perfectly. 
I have to say these Spellbinder's dies stay on my desk 24/7!

Happy Friday!


I am so excited to share this layout with you.
I have had it completed for some time now and it is one of my FAVES.

I used May Arts ribbons on here and created some banners with them.
They are the Double Stitched/Striped ribbons. I just LOVE these colors.

Henry doesn't say his "g"s very well so he calls my mom Nama instead of Grandma. 
She eats it up every time he says it and even signs her name that way now. It's tooo cute.
I snapped this photo on the boat down at my sister's this summer. H is the BEST snuggler in the world and this photos really captures that. He also pronounces that "nuggle". LOL!

I used my Scrapdango July kit for this. I love these papers from Simple Stories and I accented it with the ribbons, of course, and some LYB stickers.

Here is a close up of the ribbon banners.
I love wide can use it just like patterned paper and that is what I did here.

Have a great weekend!

OA Cards

Cards Cards and More cards!

I created a few cards last weekend and wanted to share them with you today.
For some reason the OA sketches always get posted for me at the opportune time.
This card sketch was no exception.

this vintage button.

Stamps are MyStampBOX (not in kit)

And some pics of Henry. He ALWAYS says this when he can't
get something to do what he wants. It's obviously broken and not
his fault, LOL!

OH and make sure you head over for the Month of September.
School is in Session!
