Happy Birthday Daddy!

Good Morning!
Today's card was made with my wonderful father in mind and the only thing he asked for this year was a handmade card and for the family to go out to dinner. And that's exactly what we did. He is celebrating his 59th birthday today, and of course this is the card I made for him -- and he loved it! Happy Birthday Daddy...we love you so very much! :)

I've had theDelicate Doilies stamp set for awhile and really haven't inked it up much so my goal was to create a masculine card with it. I also used the super new and cute Twitterpated DSP Stampin' Up! has in the Occasions Mini Catalog. Love it! This card was very simple and quick to make, too.

Card Size: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.
Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Curly Cute
Paper: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Twitterpated DSP
Ink: Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzaz
Tools: 3/4" Punch, 3D-Dimensionals

Chat soon, Stampers!

Happy New Year!

Hello and Happy 'belated' Holidays!

It has been a few months since I have last posted to my blog, but I feel that January 1st is the best day to start a-new here! :) Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Years! I have been quite busy with the daily life tasks of being a wife, mother, and part-time worker and I haven't saved much time for myself to do the things that I like to do. I have done a few crafty things, but blogging just hasn't been the easiest of things to get to lately. I do apologize! :)

Have you made your New Year's Resolutions or Goals yet?? Anything interesting that you'd like to share? I just completed a list of mine....20 total, I should add. It contains a wide variety of things that I would like to accoomplish in 2012 -- from completing my Wedding Scrapbook to Buying a House! Yesssss.......I know...a bit crazy, but I feel like I can do it. :)

With that said, here I am typing away at one of my new resolutions/goals. I'll be back later this week to show you some crafty creations, but until's a great picture of my lil Tayton and his first encouter with Santa. It was rather entertaining, I should say -- poor lil guy! :)

Have a great day and an even better New Year!
Toodles for now! xoxoxo
