Thankful Thursday Design Team

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for stopping by. I have some big news today. I made the Thankful Thursday Design Team on Crazy About Cricuts (Jenny's) blog. This is the first design team I have made it on and it was my first time applying for a design team. I'm really excited that I made the team and even more excited to have fun designing projects for the team with my family.

For those of you who are new to my blog, here is a little bit about me. I have been married for almost 19 years, I have four boys ages 19, almost 18, almost 16 and 11. I also just became a grandma to a beautiful little girl on April 13th. I love spending time with her and I can't wait until she can start scrapbooking with her grandma. :)

I actually have been blogging since June 2008 about my family. I have been scrapbooking for about 11 years (ever since my baby/youngest was born) and I started making cards and showing them off on my blog in January 2011. In April 2011, I started a separate blog  just for my crafting (mostly card making). I look forward to these challenges to push me into other creative areas and to think more outside the box.

Thank you for stopping by and I would love for you to become a follower if you aren't already. I also love to read all your comments. Thank you Jenny for this great opportunity!

Hugs to all!

Easter Cards

Well, I had planned on making these Easter cards and linking them up to Jalisa's Patches of Pink Thursday Link Up to try for a spot on her design team, but I took too long and didn't get it done on time. Anyway, here is what I came up with and if you get a chance, go vote for someone on Jalisa's blog. I did. Thanks everyone for visiting and leave me a comment.

A Blog Hop & A Class!

I've had a busy weekend so far. Yesterday I participated in the My Pink Stamper Monthly Blog Hop. I truly enjoy participating in these blog hops. I get so many ideas and inspiration from others. The top card below is the project I will be linking up on My Pink Stampers blog for the hop.

This morning, I held my first card making class for my family, so not a real class, but it was fun. I made three different cards (sample cards) and then put together eight kits for each of the three different cards. In attendance were my mom, my aunt and my 84 year old grandma. It's never too late to learn new ideas. We all had a lot of fun spending time with each other, crafting with each other and eating my aunt's very nutty brownies. LOL! I liked them Auntie! Anyway, here are the three sample cards. Let me know what you think. I love to see all of your comments.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog! Stop back soon!

Spinner Horse Card

I was a busy bee today. I made two cards and one of them is a spinner card which takes me a little bit longer than most cards. Enjoy!

So, I made this birthday card for a friend who has a horse.
Below is the picture of the actual horse.. How did I do?

Below this picture is a close up of the horse.
I think it turned out pretty good and this one is the spinner card.
Pretty proud of this one.
And I did a monkey card just for the heck of it. You can't tell in the picture, but I've popped up the light green grass from the dark green grass to give it a multi-dimentional look. The monkey is also popped up.

The Beginning of Sweet Pea's Cards....

Hello everyone!

I have recently decided to separate my personal blog from my card and scrappin' blog. I am loving creating cards and scrapbook pages and sharing them on my blog. I was kind of shy about it in the beginning, but I've been getting so many great comments from everyone about my creations, it has only encouraged me to share more. I named my new blog site, Sweet Pea's Cards because one of my cousins, and she knows who she is, gave me the nickname Sweet Pea and it has just kind of stuck. Thank you Muffin (the nickname I gave her)!

I hope this will be the place where my creations will be shared and loved by all. Thanks everyone who has supported me so far and feel free to click on my "follow me" button. I love having followers and I love having comments. Thanks again and see you soon!
