Have a "hoot"...

Tonight my hubby came home and asked me if there was anyway that I could "whip" up a retirement card for him for tomorrow. Of course, I said yes! With my new scraproom it is so much easier to get everything together and know where things are. I feel so much more creative too! It's awesome! I adapted one of Kristie Larsen's card that she did for 365 Cards blog, day 333. Both of these are great blogs that you should definetly check out! Here's my version:



Hope that you enjoy it!

Mojo Monday Sketch

I am doing the Mojo Monday Sketch again this week. I absolutely love these sketches! Here is this weeks sketch...

Here is my version...I chose...

SQUARE with a little bit of ROUND!

This is a birthday card for my brother...his b-day isn't til May, but I've been thinking about him a lot, because he's got a lot going on in his life right now, so I thought that I would spend some time and make him a real nice card.

The circle, although you can't tell in my amateur picture, is raised up. I finally found a product that I absolutely love that actually stays raised even when you press on it with all your weight, 3M Pop-Up Foam Squares, love them! Almost this entire card was done in scraps. I try to do that with all my cards, because my whole sheets I like to save for layouts, even though I haven't done ANY lately...well 2 the other day, but that's all. I am really in to card making lately.
