Yee Haw

 Greetings Friends,
This past week two of my nephews celebrated their 9th birthday.  I decided to make them matching cards this year.  The YeeHaw stamp set jumped out at me when I opened my stamp cupboard so I ran with it. 
Sorry for the sideways shot of the inside.  Stupid technology. 
I like my clever little use of the horse shoe.  :)
Happy birthday Braden & Conrad.
Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Mermaid Valentine

Greetings Friends,
My Emily loves all things mermaid so when her and I found this mermaid stamp at the craft store we had to buy it.

While stamping the Valentine cards for my girls group yesterday I was inspired to put the mermaid over the Work of Art pink stripes.  I even had a valentine greeting that matched beautifully.

Emily loved it so much we made 26 of these valentines for her to pass out at her class party in February.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

I Luv U

Greetings Friends,
It is still Christmas break yet which gives me the perfect opportunity to get some of my Valentine cards done.  Once I am back to babysitting fulltime and running kids to all of their activities it seems there is precious little time or energy to work on crafty projects.

I found this little tic-tac-toe stamp at the thrift shop and instantly thought that I could use it to make a cute Valentine for my girls group at church.  Paired with the Work of Art stamp set I was able to make 15 cards super quick.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Happy Birthday Katelynn

Greetings Friends,
The little girl that I babysit, Katelynn, is celebrating her 1st birthday today. 

Katelynn dressed up like Minnie Mouse for Halloween this year so when I spied this Minnie Mouse stamp at the thrift shop I picked it up knowing I would use it for her birthday card.  Her birthday party theme is a pink winter wonderland so I went with a pink themed card.

Happy birthday Miss Katelynn ~ Ms. Rachel loves you.

Greetings Friends,
I have seen this card all over Pinterest and think it is just darling.  It is also super easy - so when I needed to make cards for my girls at church this was perfect.  Emily stamped these all out and I mounted them all - a total of 20 cards.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Greetings Friends,
For Halloween Kim and her friends decided to dress up like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  I went and picked up all the stuff and we had a craft session after school.  How awesome that I found the green plastic serving trays at the dollar store.  Woo Hoo!!!

 We had fun chatting, snacking and crafting together. 

Kimberly posed for me in her completed costume.  They never took a picture of the four of them together - drat!!!

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel.
