Cupcake stairstep card





This is the cupcake card for the last DT challenge. I decided to try my first stairstep card. I really like how it turned out. I added some glimmer to my pink paper but it doesn't show up that well in the pictures.

Monogram Thank You's






Cassie's cards





My 9 year old daughter wanted me to upload some of her cards she made while she was home sick. I think she did a great job!

Feel Better Build-A-Bear


I made this card for my friend whose niece is really sick with H1N1.

Kids likely have H1N1

Cassie and Derek came down with symptoms on Saturday - headache, fevers about 101. Sunday same temps except Derek also got cough & congestion. Monday same temps except now Cassie added cough and congestion as well. Cassie had a horrible night sleep last night, she kept waking up because of the congestion. Her temp went up to 102.1 this morning & her heartrate was way up. I took her to the E.R. They did a chest XRay & she does have fluid on her lungs but not enough to warrant antibiotics at this time. Derek seems a little better today - less cough, temp down to 99.4. Derek had 8 of 18 Kindergarteners out in his class yesterday, Cassie's 4th grade classes were averaging about 6 out. The ER Dr told me they expect this to peak sometime in November!! YUCK!!!

10/09 Cards for Lily






We made these cards for a special little girl who is really sick. We hope they brighten her day just a little. The pumpkin card my 9 year old daughter made. I think it turned out really cute! She used an extra pumpkin cut I had from a previous layout and she chose the card color & the border punches on her own - then she used orange glitter glue on the pumpkins.. but they turned out green - still cute! The next picture with the bear is my 6 year old son's card & he drew a flower above the bear for her - how sweet! The top card is the one I made. When my daughter saw it she wanted to know how I ever tied a bow like that!! LOL!

10/09 Altered Notebooks/ Post-It Note Holders &misc







I am sharing a few projects I have been working on. The altered notebook sets are for one of my friend's girls. I plan on making a matching Matchbox with some little goodies inside, too. The Halloween set is hot cocoa packet pull outs. The Spongebob card I made for my son's friend.
