A co-worker is leaving the states and returning to Puerto Rico.  I used the butterflies to represent freedom - in her case from an abusive situation.  I wish her well.  She deserves to be happy.  We will all miss her.

A Little Twist

My husband's cousin went camping with us last summer.  I took her picture and agreed to "touch it up" for her.  I forgot about that agreement until this morning as I searched camping photos for another project.  I'm happy with the results and want to share them.

Good Luck Baby Doll

Brianna starts school tomorrow, but without her brother by her side.  She will be also be riding the bus for the first time.  So I want to surprise her tomorrow with a card in her backpack.  She's growing up and becoming more and more independent, but still very dependent.  She's still our Baby Doll!

Supplies used:  Stampin' Up and Cricut.

Card Club Thanks

A card for my Card Club's instructor Jen Blank.  Visit her website

I haven't posted in a while.  I've been in a creative slump.  But after our Card Club meeting last night and receiving some new stuff from Stampin' Up, I found the energy to create this card for Jen.  She does an amazing job being prepared at every meeting and providing easy and fun new techniques to the class.

Thanks Jen for your time.  Seriously.  You're amazing.

Just A Note Card

My BFF Kimmy has had a successful week as guest designer on Peachy Keen Stamps!  I'm so proud of her focus and determination.  She can do whatever she puts to mind.  I made this card to express my appreciation for all her support with my paper crafting, blogging, and life's little details.  She's a wonderful friend that makes my day brighter every time I get the opportunity to pin her down long enough to have a conversation.  LOL!
