It's your birthday....Josh

I was asked to go to a birthday party last night so I had to come up with a quick card.  It just so happened we were having ice cream cake so I had the perfect image from Imagine That called Ice Cream Boy.  The sentiment is from TLC.

God's promises

I just love this sketch from Viva la Verve and I got these new die cuts from My Favorite Things so I had to use them.  I used a stamp from Verve and then I stamped another one on top and when it was wet I added a little embossing powder since I wanted a little sparkle in my stars.

Happy Birthday lil Brother

My brother is 3 years younger than me and had his birthday on the 24th.  I had this card done for him, and just haven't had a chance to post it.  The sentiment is from TLC which is part of a 5 piece brother set.  I sent this card to him with a Cabella's gift card so hopefully he will be happy and get a laugh at the sentiment.

Fresh Milk

Finally I have had a minute to make a card. I hate to say it, but I had to quit my job in order to make that happen.  It was becoming too much.  I have never quit a job without having something lined up so this is a little scary.  Working many hours and not having time to craft for stress relief is not worth it.  So I have called on a couple of leads and I just had to make a card this morning with the new Mojo sketch.  I used a sentiment from TLC.  My card is a 4 X 6.

My house is not messy

Well, lately it is since I have been working a lot.  I just love this sentiment from TLC.  My Mother has been nagging me that I should spend at least an hour a day on my house....I just wish that I was awake that long when I am home.  I thought of hiring a cleaning lady, but feel I have to get it in order first isn't that crazy.  Hopefully I will have some time on the weekend.
