Birthday Fun!

A week ago today I was doing this.....

....enjoying the beach in Florida.  How much can it change in a week?  Well today I'm bundled in a blanket at my son's house babysitting for the grandkids (who are currently napping).  We came yesterday to celebrate this little girl's 2nd birthday!

Mya's party was a Frozen theme so here's the card I made for her using this youtube tutorial by Michelle Suit!  I made Olaf first and then realized that there was no way he was going to fit on a standard card size to this one is made to fit in a 5 x 7 envelope.  I didn't have the bow maker die so I made do with a leaf framelit from a retired set, and when I was all done realized I could have used the Christams light from the retired ornament framelit set.  Oh well--I think it turned out fine!  =-)

The inside said, "it's Mya's birthday!"

Dropping the Ball.....and I don't mean the New Year's Ball!

Wow!  I haven't posted since early November!  Seriously, I think my school and holiday commitments got the best of me!  I owe some people some posts of pictures/instructions first AND then I will be able to start posting photos of cards and craftiness made with things from the new Occasions catty and Sale-a-Bration sets! (can't wait....)

So let's see....I'm hoping I have photos of the cards that I need to post since I gave a bunch to my mom over Christmas!

Here are the photos from my Nov. Stamp Set of the Month featuring, Ornamental Pine and Holiday Home.  I don't have all the photos....yet....but I'm still looking!

This was my favorite!  You can't really see the bling of glitter on the pine cones!

Love how the embossing folder mimics the look of pine cones.

This was case'd from Stampin' School.....and I should have one more, but can't find the picture yet.
Found it!!

Here are the four cards for Holiday Home.....

This is my first try--I changed the real red to cherry cobbler....and it looks much better~ cased this from Teneale Williams.

We did this card, but changed the white to soft sky and I liked it a lot better.

This was cased from our demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success.

So sorry friends for these late, late, late pictures.....I'll be back tomorrow with pics of December's Stamp Sets of the Month-- White Christmas and Festival of Trees.
