As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a Coke...lol... and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

 Today we are showing you the new and awesome stamp set “Say it from the Heart”
Here is what I created using this new stamp set:











 The sentiments in this set are ALL so wonderful, I had a very difficult time choosing just one!  But, since I had chosen a few of my wedding photos, and my husband passed away a little over a year ago...THIS sentiment was just perfect for the page! 
It says, "I never had a connection this strong and I never want to imagine life without it" 

Well that is my project and I am glad you stopped by today. Your next stop on the hop is Mary's blog so have a great time as my Design Team sisters have really created up some gorgeous projects that will surely inspire you!!

 Today we are showing you the new and awesome stamp set “Simple Sentiments”
Here is what I created using this new stamp set:
I used patterned card stock from K and Company. I love the double sided coordinating patterns! I just flipped the flowered side over to get the lighter, subtle pattern. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the NEW stamp set on the bottom and layered flowers on the lower left. I put a stick pin in the flowers and a bit of bling for the center and called it done ;)

 I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set!!! Makes it very easy to make a simple, beautiful card! .
