Donut you want to have fun?



Donut you just want to have some fun?
My upcoming class is everything donuts
This card is pretty basic and easy to do


I used a 1 3/4' circle punch to punch out the crumb cake donut and then also cut out a 1 3/4" circle with the glimmer paper.
For the center to be punched out I used the smallest circle framelit which measures a 3/4" in size.
The sequins are from a past Paper Pumpkin that I put to use as the sprinkles on the donut


For the frosting of the donut I just fussy cut around the circle
The stamp is from the past Paper Pumpkin Sprinkled with Love set



You can see in the pic how I cut out the donuts
To the right of the pic is the small framelit I used to cut out the center.
Donut you want to try these!  baaahaaaaa!!!
My creative class is friday morning, so keep an eye out for me donuts!

Farmhouse Wood Bead Garland



Hello friends!
So excited to be adding to my shop these Farmhouse natural wood beads I have been making!
They come in two sizes.  One is a long strand that you can drape on your mantle or over your decor or like I have above around my large sea glass vase.


In this photo you can see the two styles available
The long garland measures 30" long and the bead size are 16mm
The smaller vase garland has an opening of 2 1/2" to slide over a vase or other decor.


I used the vase garland to put around my large vase.
You can see it fits nicely, this vase is a tall one sitting at 12" tall

These farmhouse beads can be used in all kinds of your home decor from sitting it on your shelf to accenting your farmhouse decor, also can be used as tie backs for your curtains.  The possibilities are endless.

Grand Canyon



It's been a fun filled week in the desert.
We took our first visit up to the Grand Canyon and fell in love with the views.  It was so completely beautiful that it looked like someone had painted a wall of beauty in front of us. 
These photos don't even do it justice.


We were able to hike along the south rim of the canyon as the north rim was closed due to inclement weather.
When we left Phoenix to drive up to the canyon the temperature was 95, at the canyon it was a perfect 72.
Couldn't have asked for more perfect weather for being there.




I half expected it to be busy with it being spring break, but it wasn't.   No lines, very few people.
We were amazed to see how comfortable the wildlife was with us being in their playground


We all reached new "heights" at the canyon
Our next stop was Sedona......
stay tuned......

Graduation Card



I also needed a graduation card for one of the guys so here's the same card as my last post, just different background paper.   
                    I hope it looks masculine enough!                          


Stamped the inside just the same as the last.  
(i'm so original...)

Graduation cards



Getting ready for some upcoming grads in our family.  Seems early but they are happening early May.  
I just cut the black banner out and embossed in white to create the cute hanging banner. 


I stamped the inside using stamps from past Paper Pumpkins

Bike Ride



Just when you thought the Bike Ride was over, it is continuing!
For this one, you want to stamp the bike all over the front of the card.

The flower bouquet comes in the set.  I stamped it and fussy cut it out to attach to the front of the card.
