Can we say "About Time???!!!"

So some exciting news about me! My boyfriend Sean of almost five years got enough guts to ask me to marry him! I am so excited!! We really haven't set a date yet, but we are thinking sometime next year. We have a couple of ideas floating around and I will keep you informed on all the details! As soon as I get a decent pic of the ring, I'll shar it will you!

I can't leave ya without a card!! That wouldn't be humane of me!

I made this card for the Queen Kat Designs Royal Wednesday (QKD)chipboard challenge. Hope you like!!

Bye for now!

Thanks a Bunch! - Cafe Mojo Ribbon/Lace Challenge

Hi Everyone! I made these cards for the Cafe Mojo "Mocho Mojo" Challenge. We had to use our "Stash of Ribbon or Lace"

On my first card I used my Verve Visual stamp set "Grateful Elegance". I love the little flowers in this set!

On this card, I got to use my new Copic Airbrush gun. I fell in love with it!! It's so much fun! I used my Verve Visual stamp set "Thankful Blossoms" and cut out the flowers and used Martha Stewart's Fire opal glitter on them.

Thanks for looking!!
By for now!

Sieze The Cupcake!

Here's a fun project!! I love cupcakes..(who doesn't right??) I found this idea in the magazine Paper Creations. I was standing in line at my local Hobby Lobby store and I saw the magazine. I usually don't buy them because they are so expensive, but this one had cupcakes on it and since the line wasn't going anywhere, I picked it up and started perusing. Well, I ended up using my 40% off coupon on the magazine because it was loaded with awesome ideas. This cupcake being one of them.

I made a tutorial over at the Cafe Mojo blog if you are interested in step-by-step instructions.

Have fun and be creative if you decide to make one. I would love to see what you come up with!
By for now!
