Wouldn't it be nice!! The lyrics really are sweet!! Short post today! Been busy doing all sorts of things!! Fill you in soon. Going on a little staycation this weekend! Getting away from the hustle and bustle! Just wanted to leave you with this clip from 50 First dates! Hope it puts a smile on your face!! If you haven't seen this movie yet, go out and rent it ASAP!! Beautiful scenery of Hawaii!! Drew Barrymore & Adam Sandler great combo!!
I stayed true to my pocket cards, but made them mini for this project. The thought behind this project is that the pocket card is attached to the bag and serves as a either a pocket for a card or a gift receipt for the gift inside the bag. I made the bag in TEAL, the background in polka dot MAGENTA and the heart in OLIVE! Also the ribbon handles are 2 different shades of OLIVE. I love this mini size bags!! Cute and just big enough to fit something awesome inside! I'm using these for Halloween!! Stay Tuned!!
Quick post, here's another simple card that I made for standby cards. You know, for those times that you or someone in your family needs a card for something last minute or for something that they totally forgot about. I made this with the cricut and I am lovin the color combo! It's supposed to be a play on -love is in the air-, sort of? Well you get the point?!! The inside is blank to write your own personal message.
For this challenge, I decided to enter a Thank You card that I recently made for my dad's birthday party. Since it's the year of the Dragon, I went with that theme! All of the images were made with the cricut. I cut the bonsai tree as the background image, I brushed it with black ink on the edges to kinda look like smoke or mist. I wanted the dragon to be the main focus of the card, but not make it so harsh looking, so I inked it with gold to look more regal than scary. I used the thick double-sided tape to pop it up a little. Lastly I added some sakura or cherry blossoms in different sizes to add some serenity to the card.

This weeks pinspirations is all about the dress up! With Halloween quickly approaching, it's time to start getting the costumes in order! Do you dress up for Halloween? Do you know what you're gonna be yet?? Do you make your own or do you buy them? I'm sure this year there will be tons of P.S.Y. Gangdum style going around!! What do you think the hot costumes will be? Here are some of my favs that I found on pinterest!
Some youngins might not even know who E.T. is?! I think this is an awesome costume!!
Awesome group costume!!
Anyone want some sushi? Cute costume and I think it's a little funny, that they're asian! haha!
Hello! My name is Forrest! Forrest Gump!!
Usually I am not a fan of the tutu for costumes, because most of the time it doesn't make sense?! For some odd reason to me, this one kinda makes sense? I don't know, I like it!
I think this is so fun! Jan-Ken-Po!
This costume is fun, and it really does look like a bath scrubbie!
