Birthday for a Friend

Good morning!! just poppin' in today to share a birthday card I made for a great friend of mine Patricia ( Happy Birthday Trish!!) I am really excited about how this card came out. Its the first time I have made a window card! whoo hoo!
Today I have used a Simply sassy stamp from Sugar Nellie called Fabulous Darling LET ME TELL YOU.. These girls are seriously the cutest EVER! I got some cash for my birthday and that money burnt a hole straight through my wallet and went straight to the  Funky Kits website & it was so hard to choose they are are so pretty! Hopefully my birthday comes back around quick so I can order more! haha 
I added a party hat on top of my TH rosette with a tiny stamp I got from a craft convention this year It totally made it look more like a Bday card. The  flowers used are from WOC and the ticket stamp and die is from whimsy stamps.
I will be entering my card into the following challenges:
Whimsy challenge- patterns and pearls
The sugar bowl: Cathy's sketch

Thank you for stopping in today! I love any comments you leave and while your at it add yourself to my followers list! My list is still kinda lonely! :)

Shaker Ornaments

Good Morning My fellow crafters! Today I would like to share with you a little project I made for a few of my friends and family members.  I was looking through my craft area when the idea hit me! I had plenty of these little shaker windows to make a shaker ornament! I personalized them by using my cricut machine and adding there names on the inside. I used different types of beads and glitters for the insides.
I will be entering my projects to the following challenges:
 Whimsy stamps challenge- anything but a card
Magnolia down under- Christmas decoration
Tomic #27- shaker card

Pretty with Pink

Good morning everyone!!! It is a beautiful snowy day here in Albuquerque! school is canceled and no work for me.. WHOO HOO can you say  LAZY DAY!!! haha
I was sooo excited to find out I was the LUCKY random winner at Kraftin' Kimmie challenge last week!!!! I have never won anything before so I was THRILLED!
Today I have made a card to play along with Kimmie's dry or heat embossing challenge.  I have actually done both on my card today and it was sooo fun!
So you might be wondering where my embellishments are? well... I don't know why I thought part of the challenge was to NOT having embellishments on your card and I was wrong.. so sad, I struggled with it looking so plain but didn't feel like going back and adding so here she is....

I used my dot folder to dry emboss and sanded it down so it looks more distressed and also added some wet embossed snowflakes on my sentiments background

I made a wet embossed snow flake background with some glittery  silver emboss powder
