Phew it's Saturday...

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!
Yay we made it to the weekend. And I, of course forgot to do my posting for yesterday. Go figure right? Over at the Pink By Design blog we are hosting a  Summer Food and Drinks Challenge ( You have till tonight at 11:59 pm to enter ). Hard to think of something to make that is not a card that revolves around food and drink commonly ate or drunk in the summer time.
So I made this cute little cake box, that looks like a watermelon. Clever right?

Technique Wednesday

Happy Hump Day Friends!

Today is Technique Wednesday over at the Pink By Design blog. And its all about creative stitching on your 4 hole buttons. This is also staying with our current theme challenge of Summer Food and Drinks.
Here is the tip I used:
Let’s name the holes: the upper left – 1, the upper right – 2, the lower left 3, the lower right – 4.
Stitch an arrow: the thread goes from 1 to 4, from 2 to 4 and from 3 to 4; you get an arrow pointing to the lower right corner. You can use this arrow to draw attention to some detail on your layout.
Card base is 4.25 x 5.5
Pink By Design Cocktails stamp set
Pink By Design Capture Life stamp set
Pink By Design Aloha stamp set
Trendy Twine in Tickled Pink
Gelly Roll pen and Ranger Archival ink
Have a great Wednesday!

Happy 4th of July America!

Happy 4th of July Friends!
I am a composite being of all the people of America.
I am the union if you are united.
I am one and indivisible if you are undivided.
I am as strong as the weakest link.
I am an emblem of your country.
I am a symbol of the shadow of the real.
I am a sign pointing to past achievements.
I am a promise of greater things for the future.
I am what you make me.
I am purity if you are pure.
I am bravery if you are brave.
I am loyalty if you are loyal.
I am honor if you are honorable.
I am goodness if you are good.
I am hope if you are hopeful.
I am truth if you are true.
I am the Constitution.
I am law and order.
I am tolerance or intolerance as you force me to be.
I am liberty as you understand liberty.
I am as a pillar of fire by night,
but you must provide the fuel.
I march at the head of the column,
but you must carry me on.
I stand for greater and more glorious
achievement than can be found in recorded
history, but you must be my inspiration.

Update and Project.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!
I was adding a new way to follow my blog since Blogger decided to do away with Blog reader today :(.  If you look to the right of my blog you will see I added the fun new way to stay up to date on my postings-----------------> I'd love it if you would click on the box and follow my blog. Anyways I was adding that and realized I am a couple projects behind on posting. So this week I need to play catch up and get those posted.
For this card I used Pink By Design's Red, White, & Blue stamp set, Bo Bunny Liberty Designer paper, and my Making Memories paper distresser.  Just in time for the 4th of July! This card is 4.25x5.5. Well Friends, Have a great Monday and I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Anything but a card Friday!

Hello Friends,
Happy Friday! Today complete's my posting week over at the Pink By Design Team Blog. And today our post is all about non-card Father's Day projects. Goes along with our challenge theme this week. All about Father's. Be sure to link up your Father's Day projects if you haven't already. You can do so by clicking HERE.
For today's project I made this adorable lil brief case. You can find the cut file for this project in the Silhouette store, along with the mustache. It was a super easy holder to make and I think it is perfect for any man considering they don't care much about the bling and flashiness. And if they throw it away my feelings won't be hurt to bad.

Here is a picture of all my Father's Day projects I made for the week.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend,
