Birthday and Busy Weekend!

Wow! Crazy last week! So if you have not watched my recent video on YT you...please hold while I put some ear drops on the anywho, I had a crazy week! I was sick on my birthday and didn't do anything until Saturday. Went to dinner and then on Sunday my friend had a birthday bash / football playoff party. Best birthday EVER! Had a blast and got some amazing gifts and cards (I'll share them here) AND our team won and are going to the superbowl!!! WHAAAT! After 19 years! We are having a superbowl party and red and gold all the way! Please refer to the pictures below...=)

This is way better than any birthday cake! My bestie, LaDonna made me these cupcakes and they were soooo good!

This is the card that LaDonna gave me. The reason this was a perfect card was because this actually happened a couple of days later to my friend! And me, I always take tons of pictures and always have my camera. Too bad I didn't have my camera this day because it would have been hilarious!

This is a card that my friend Melissa gave me. Melissa is LaDonna's sister and when I met her she was quiet and shy...well...then I came along and now she is exactly what this card says! Another perfect card!

This card came from Margaret, LaDonna's mom. Do I really have to explain this one? LOL! Again, another perfect card. =)

This was supposed to be a gag gift but when we went to San Fransisco for the first time to see the 49ers play, Margaret was using this hairspray and I absolutely fell in love with the smell! I never got a chance to buy it for myself so they bought me my very own can! It smells so good too!

 Here is another gag gift...I adored this too! You guys have no idea how good this pancake mix is! It's the best and when I saw how big this bag was, I was in heaven! Nom nom nom!

 And here...well...the best moment EVER! The last minutes when our team was playing and won the play offs to go to the Super Bowl! We were crying tears of joy! And Stan got the perfect picture! It was an amazing Sunday! Ahhhhh....

Now for crafting wise! I have been super busy crafting that I'm all pooped out! I still have to make some cards to sell so my daughter can go to camp and it has to be done by Thursday! Feel like selling the digis earlier just to make the mula! Aye! STRESS!

I made 40 goodie bags for the girls and almost sold them all! Super excited about that but I never want to see a goodie bag again! LOL!

Then I was in a swap. I loved doing these! It was nice an simple except that I sort of made it vintage...I don't do vintage! But a long time ago, I had bought a little vintage stamp that I was dying to use and when this tag swap came up I had to! So I found my inner vintage and did it! LOL!

Valentines Day Card/Dia de los muertos

Hello there! Hope you guys are having a wonderful week so far. I for one am exhausted and feel like I have so much catching up to do! I have not checked my sites or email that much for two days and I have missed sooo much! LOL! Anywho, here is what I worked on for my cousin.

She wanted me to make her a Valentines Day card but with a Dia de los muertos theme.  I asked her which of the images that I have done that she like and she chose two. So what I  did was make a completely different drawing and meshed to two that she liked into one. I hope you guys can see it. I absolutely adore it and I can't wait to make a painting out of it!

 These are the two images that she liked and from here I drew a new image.

This is a card I made for a friend
A painting I did for my fav. sister-in-law  for Christmas

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for stopping by!

Some Cards I Made

Hi! Well, I have been busy and made 2 Valentine Day cards using some of my January digital images.  I absolutely love how they came out!  So here we go!

Here is my first card that I made using the digi,  'Monkey Love.' It is a standard size card measuring 5 1/2 x 4." 

And here is my second card using my new January releases, 'Ryan Flowers for you' and 'Sweetheart Susi' digital  images.  I made it into a 'side step card.' I got the tutorial coming up soon but just need to upload, edit and translate it to English. =) Hope you guys like!

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. You can find these images on my other blog. There is a link on the side bar and on the tabs above. See you guys later!
