Here's some pictures of his card and one of me and him (heehee, I'm a daddy's girl).
Now, can you guess what he is to me, besides my daddy? Yup, my personal Mr. Fix-it! He's always been a Mr. Fix-it ever since I was little.
Well guys, I hope you are having a great weekend! I don't know when my next posting will be. As Donna and Tracy say, I got into hibernation when school is in session. So until then, happy crafting and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Embellishments: Happy Birthday Ribbon is from American Crafts, I also used embroidery thread (not shown), Copic Markers, Crop-a-dile, eyelets, buttons, Circuit Machine, Circuit Cartridge: Paper Doll Dress Up and Street Sign.
Hope you have a great night! I have more to post but I made presents for my friends (and they check my blog, as I do with theirs) so I'll post it tomorrow after our play date!

Isn't she pretty! It's a digi stamp from InStyle Stamps, her name is Mykai. I love asian themed things! So here's the 411:

Cardstock that was used:Bazzill's Ebony, Bazzill's Cardinal (I think...) and the washi paper, has no name (of course! grr!) Copic colors that I used: E50, R30, E47, E79, BG01, and BG23. Oh!

Well, here's the supply list:
Bazzill Bitter Chocolate and American Crafts Backyard 12x12 (all it has is the stock numbers: 34698 and 34703). The American Crafts paper is double sided so I just used the back side to make more layers.
Everything else is basic; I didn't even blend my colors this time. I'm just going for simplicity. Well, I'm off to homework and hopefully I'll be able to craft tonight. HAPPY FRIDAY!

It's 6:20 pm and I just spent 20 minutes making this card. The entire day (9:30 am - a few minutes ago), I was working on my math (that's not even including class today!). Ugh too: re-taking tests, anti-derivatives, and reversing the chain rule. Yeah, I don't get it either! My brain hurts just thinking about it.
I had to whip up a birthday card for one of our friends (of course, her birthday is tonight and I waited till the last minute). I'm so glad for card websites! Giving me quick inspirations when I need to make the card NOW! You know what I mean?
Anyway, this card is simple to make:
Bazzill Smoothies - Watermelon Sensation
Light Yellow Cardstock (yup, the same one from the other card, still don't know the name)
Doodlebug's Pink Lemonade Plaid
Hero Arts Ink n'Stamp - Sweets
Hero Arts Clear Stamps - Birthday Sayings
Hero Arts Spring Flower Art
Other tools used:
Die Cutting System
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Small Deckled Rectangles
Memento's Dye Ink - Tuxedo Black and New Sprout
Now, off to waking up hunny, drag him down to Ben Franks, picking up a gift certificate, then head over to their house and having BBQ for dinner! YUMMY YUMMY FOR MY TUMMY! The birthday girl is into beading (is that what it's called...? I was going to say bead-making, but it's not bead-making. You know what I mean...the thing you use with bead to make jewerly). LOL! *Talk about brain-farts tonight! Sorry...
Have a great night!

Here's the supplies I used to make this card:
Light Yellow Cardstock from Bazzill (sorry, lost the package and I don't know the name)
Doodlebug's Sugarcoated Lily White (White) Cardstock
Doodlebug's Sugarcoated Buttercream (Light Yellow) Cardstock
Doodlebut's Sugarcoated Bumblebee (Yellow) Cardstock

Stickles Glitter Glue - Yellow
Hero Arts Faceted Clear Gemstones
Small Star Punch
The glitter cloud (with stars) was cut with the Cricut, I believe it's the Paperdoll Collection. Within the stars are smaller stars, which were punched and glued on. I followed a pattern for the gemstones, i used "In Stitch'z" by Bazzill - flourishes templates. These templates are pretty cool too, you are supposed to actually poke holes in the paper and create a stiched design. Now I'm off to go and do homework. =( Until then, that's for checking me out, have a great night!

Hi everyone! Sorry I have not done much lately, James and I had our anniversary on Thursday, and we headed over to Waikoloa Friday afternoon. This picture was from Saturday. We had such a wonderful time!
On Friday, we checked in and got ready for dinner, James made dinner reservations at Roy’s. The food there was delicious, amazing, awesome, the best! Saturday, we woke up around 8am, had breakfast ordered to our room, our friends came over around 12pm, we swam in the pool all day (James and I got BURNT!) after our friends left, drove into Kona, and went to Petco (we bought our kitties a new toy) and we ate at Genki Sushi. We had to put the menu next to the belt so we could see what we were eating. Then we came back to Waikoloa, saw the sunset, went back to our room and watched a movie. This morning, after waking up in pain from the sun-burn, somehow made it down to the restaurant and ate at the breakfast buffet. The funniest part about breakfast was, James made his plate and took it to the table, came back to grab juice for us and was waiting with me for my toast to finish. When my toast finished, we looked at our table, and I kid you not, there was 15 BIRDS EATING HIS BREAKFAST!!! LMAO!!! We totally forgot to take a picture of that moment! Dough! The birds even took one entire piece of bacon! Poor baby had to redo his plate. Packed up and now we are back at home.
We had wonderful time at the Marriott, we are glad to be home, but surely miss staying at a hotel. Until later...have a great day!
