Another 2 Birthday cards

Me again,

 A couple of days ago I told you I had two more Birthday cards coming.  Well here they are. :-)
This one is for my beautiful Aunt in Puerto Rico.  I used the Lost and Found "Sunshine" paper.
My stamp is call "Belle" from Rubbernecker.  I paper pieced her dress with the same paper stack.  I'am also using this card for a challenge at
Latinas en America's blog This is my card.

And this was the sketch I had to follow:

my 2nd card is my beautiful niece.   For her card I used the Six by Six paper call "A Happy Heart"
Her stamp is call "Camila"  from Abby in Dilo en Espanol.  And here it is...

I add some seam binding, bling and a wooden lazer cut from Diane.
 That's it for now but I do have another birthday card in a couple of weeks.
Let me know what you think.  I love hearing from you.

 An update.....  My first card came in first place.  Yay!

In-law's Birthday cards

Hello Crafters

So in the month of October  I have about 5 birthday cards to make.  I know!!!  That's not even including Halloween cards I might want to make.  My in-laws Birthdays are 2 or 3 days apart.  I can't remember.  So, every year I make them each one and mail them together.  LOL  Her Birthday is the 1st of Oct.  And so here they are:

This one for my Mother-in -law I used the Ladies Dairy Graphic 45 paper.   Some pretty lace a friend gave me and flowers from Wild Orchid Craft.  The Birthday stamp is from my sweet friend Stephanie.  A little bit of trim and flat back pearls.  And a pretty fancy button from Joanne's.   So what do you think?

This one is for my Father-in-law.  I used Lost and Found "My Minds Eye" paper, that I picked up at A C Moore while visiting them in Cape Cod for his 80th Birthday party.  My sister Yvonne "ScrapBliss"  gave me a small pack of Dominos, she picked up while vacationing this summer.  So guess what?  Yup, I made sure the Dominos said 8-0.   Cool, don't you think!!  I think he's gonna get a kick out of that.

And Remember I mention those Halloween cards..... Here's one I made for my Swap partner Stephanie at  We had a Halloween Tag Mini to make.  You're more then welcome to watch my YT to see the mini if you like. 
But here is the card:

I used the Graphic 45 paper Happy Haunting.  And the pretty stamp is Devilish Lucy.  I purchased her from Jamie at

That's about it guys... But I have 3 more birthday cards coming very soon.  :-)
Do you have lots of Birthdays in October also??

Barbie cake and card

Hello my dear friends

Did everyone have a great Labor Day weekend?  I feel like summer is over.  Fall is just around the corner.  I love the colors of fall and the cool air.  But I do love the summer.  Labor day is not just a holiday weekend for me, its also my grand daughter's birthday.  This year she celebrated her 4th birthday.  A few weeks ago when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she quickly gave me a list.  Among the many things she asked me for, she asked me to make her a Barbie cake.  She even had me watch a few You Tube videos showing how to decorate one.  Smart little thing!!!  So guess what I made?  Yes of course!  A Barbie cake.  My very first one.  As she finished her birthday wish list she said "oh yeah Bella, I also want you to make me a card.  That would make me very happy"  OMG!! I would had never though that a card made by me would make her happy.  And yes!!  She also got her card.

Here's a closer  of the card

I used the Disney "Happily Ever After"  Cricut  cartridge for my card and the six by six "A Happy Heart" paper.  I added some bling and a wood laser dollie cut.  And of course nothing is complete without some flowers and lace.  Here is my YT video for this project  if you want to watch :-)

Thank you all for dropping by.  Let me know what you think of my first Barbie cake.  I have a feeling I'll be making more.  :-)
