Top Note Purse

Last night, I played around with my SU top note die and created this cute little purse box. It is perfect for placing within it a gift.

Tropical Storm Don

Good Afternoon My Crafty Friends,

Today has been a day of cleaning and picking up things outdoors. Tropical Storm Don is slowly approaching... the sky is beginning to darken and it is super hot outside. I ask everyone to please keep S. TX in prayer.

I've been working on some cards... I will be posting them soon. Wishing everyone a wonderful afternoon.

Thank You Card

Hello & Good Afternoon, I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. Our day in TX is a very hot one but it's all good... we are blessed to have another day.

I introduce to you our newest fish ... "Blondie" my daughter recieved this goldfish from your uncle & aunt and named it "Blondie" she claims it's a female fish but we don't know.. so to keep her happy we agree that it's a she.

I created a Thank you card to send my SIL... I used the "Create a Critter" to cut the fish, fish tank and the sand and grass. On my gypsey I welded the inner piece so that I could use a piece of acetate to resemble a glass bowl. I cut all the pieces at 4". The paper used are scraps. The sentiment is "My Pink Stamper's - Fabulous Phrases set"

Thank you for visiting my blog. Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed day.

Faith Journal

Good Morning My Crafty Friends,

It's a beautiful Monday Morning... It's beginning to be a very h0t day in S. TX but despite the heat I am thankful for another day.

My beautiful niece is going to camp this week and I wanted to make her a special journal in which she could jot down her thoughts... this is the journal I made her. The outside is covered with Hobby Lobby's (The Paper Studio- "I Love Jesus" words). I also added some ribbon I recieved from a ribbon swap hosted by "Pink by Design". Isn't this ribbon beautiful!. On the inside I wanted to create a pocket in which she could put any notes she wanted to save.

This is my first altered journal... I had some snags along the way but it's all a learning process.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Wishing everyone a blessed day.
