Birthday Card for Sis

Hello again!

I also want to share a birthday card my daughter made for my sister's birthday.  Of course with the help of her mommy.  We used scraps of paper and the image is "Sweet Thing" by Penny Black.  We added a brad and stickles to the sentiment. 

May I also introduce a dear friend of mine?   I never seen card made from an envelope template before, until my friend gave my daughter her birthday card last year.  I wanted to mention her before when I posted this card here.  But she didn't have a blog yet.  Well.... now she does and I'm so glad because she is very creative.  So now that she has a blog I get to see more of her creations.  She is a super busy woman with a full time job,  sales consultants with a few other businesses, takes very good care of her family, and is a very wonderful friend to many.  Please check out her blog here.

Thanks for letting me share...  have a great one!

Beach Day

Hiya everyone!
Are we all ready for a new work week?
Well, I wanted to share how we spent our yesterday. We finally went to a beach after probably a year. It's very difficult to find really good beaches on Hilo side of the Big Island. Or at least beaches that our children would love and that we're used to like on O'ahu.

It was sunny almost all week except for the very day we went to the beach! Oh well, at least I didn't have to worry too much about my fair skin getting burn or my children's. That sure didn't stop them from jumping in.

We first stopped at our friend's house and I couldn't resist getting a pix of their ducks. So cute, now we want some! Then there was a turtle cruising on the beach. Good thing they put a sign cause I thought he was a rock! It was a lovely time spent relaxing with family and friends.
Now it's time for me to clean house cause family flying in from O'ahu. Yay my mommy and daddy are coming!!! Lol
Thanks for takin a peek! Have a great day!

A thank you from dressy Joyce

Hiya everyone!
I created a card using Dressy Joyce from The Greeting Farm. Sorry for not having links but my computer is acting really crappy lately so I've been having to use other electronic gadgets to do this.

On my looong wish list is a sewing machine. You must be thinking... Oh wow Sweet, you sew too? Uh, no, not exactly! Or at least not on fabric. I love the look of all those beautiful cards with thread stitching on them! So... I use the Sew easy instead. Well, I tried. I don't do too well with it. So here I go with the needle punching my holes individually and my daughter look terrified saying "oh mommy please be careful, your pushing that needle and you'll get hurt!" I must say that I came out of this project pretty safe.

Other materials used:
Copics: Hair- E29, E37, E35, E33, E31
Skin- E0000, E000, E00, E01
E02, C7, R22, R32
clear Spica
Clothes- R30, R32, R22
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Papers: MME Tresbelle collection
AC cardstock
Inks: Memento-black, distress ink-
antique linen

Thanks for visiting!

HK mini album

Hi there! I hope you're all having a great weekend. This here is a mini album I made for my 7 year old niece, Lanamalie. She's at that age where she loves pictures and writing. In this album there's areas where you can place both pictures and journal writing.
This was really fun to do.
I used the sizzix hello kitty die and a whole bunch of scrap paper, hello kitty stickers, and ribbons. Perfect for a little girl or her aunty! Lol
This is something I will most definitely be making more of. Enjoy!

APP Attack

Warning... This post has nothing to do with crafts!
I'm kinda going crazy playing with the new apps they now have for iPhones and I just wanted to share a cute one using Frametastic. I took some shots from around my yard. They have really fun scrapbook apps like Scrap Pad but the image wouldn't fit my blog page.
I hope you enjoy and thanks for taking a lookey. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy New Year

This post is a bit late but this is how I spent my new year morning. Watch the first sunrise of the year on Mauna Kea is a great way to start off the year.
Happy New Year everyone!
