Has Christmas Gone to the Dogs?

I had an exciting project this week.  My mom wanted me to make a special Christmas card for her hair dresser who loves dogs.  Hmmmmm….OK.
I started searching Google for any interesting designs and eventually landed on this beauty.  I was LOLing at my computer and knew it was perfect!
I embellished the curlers with Stickles and then made the snowflakes with a Sizzix die.  I used sticker paper upside down for them and then added lots of loose glitter.  Finished it off with a rhinestone brad and lots of tulle.
Inside, I wanted to do some kind of hair-themed statement, so I hand-stamped this unique Christmas sentiment:
I think it was a hit ~ my mom didn’t even send it to her hair dresser for 3 days, as she wanted to show all her friends first.  That’s the best!  🙂
Merry Christmas!
XOXO

Phineas and Ferb Father’s Day Card

Happy Father’s Day! 

Here is a special card that I made for my hubby.  He and our son love to watch Phineas and Ferb, so I wanted to play on that.

I’m running upstairs now to give him the card (we let the big guy sleep in a little this morning).
Hope you all have a blessed day!

I Think, Therefore I Scrap.

One of the things I like most about making cards is that the themes are unlimited!  I find that happening often as I become a more “experienced” crafter. 
A few years ago, if my hubby had come to me one night and said:
“My buddy at work is having a birthday in two days.  Can you make him a special card?  He’s a philosophy major and loves Descartes.  Go!”
I would have had a panic attack and threw together a birthday card featuring a duck and some left over glitter.
This time, however, I went with it.  I took a few minutes to think about what I wanted and made it happen (vs. making something happen around what I had on hand).  I’m totally into printing my own papers and images now and it has really expanded my creativity.
This card in particular, features Descartes (I think, therefore I am) and I did a play on it with this birthday greeting:
 
He took it into work last week and everyone went nuts over it (I love it so much when that happens.  It makes me feel all warm and squishy inside), so I decided to list it in my various stores as well. 
Wish me luck!  🙂
