Ian Surfing Birthday Card

I made this Ian surfing card a while back for my Uncle's birthday.  Just been so busy with my daughter's AYSO opening ceremonies this past week.  I had to make the banner for her team and that was torture!  But it is done and I will be back into the swing of things, lol!

The Joy of Crafting!

So Cheryl asked Jen and I to be guests on The Joy of Crafting this past Friday. It was soooooo much fun and we had such a blast! Jen and I had to be on our best behavior, lol! The topic was about Blogs, and Jen and I brought some samples and talked about our experiences in blog-land. It was a blast! Joy is so awesome and such a sweet person! I thought I would share some of the pics from the shoot courtesy of Jen (thanks Jen!).

Wohoo, Cheryl in action with Joy!

Jen and I getting our mics put on!

Jen and I with the famous Joy!

Me in action (who knows what I said, lol). Jen and I had to remember to watch our language, nah just kidding!

The beautiful Jen in action....look at her go!

We had so much fun and this was such a wonderful experience! The show is set to air sometime in be on the watch for it :0)!

Dahlia for Brenda

Made this card for my gf Brenda as a little thank you for her wonderful raks. She is such a wonderful person and amazing crafter! You have to check her out! I used my GF Dahlia stamp and SU Crushed Curry, Pink Passion and Whisper White. The dp is from Paper Trey.

Used my SU Time Well Spent set to stamp a little sentiment inside. Hope she liked it!

Birthday Ensemble for my friend Maria

I made this for my wonderful friend Maria's birthday.  We had a wonderful dinner at Assagios here in Mililani.  She is always looking at handbags, but never takes the plunge, so we chipped in to get her a gc to Coach.  Now she has no excuses, lol!  

I used my Miss Anya Collection and created a gc holder and little crayon box.  Inside the crayon box was the GF Hope and Grace Sing.

Happy birthday Maria!  Your friendship means the world to me!

Raks to share!

My OCS partner for August was my gf Kyoko. She sent me this adorable card with some Hello Kitty pens for my daughter. Thanks Kyoko, this is so cute!

My gf Brenda gave me this cute Gorjuss girl mini-composition book with a pen and some anti-bacterial gel.

She also gave me these post-it-note holders with my favorite Miss Kitty on it! Thanks Brenda for thinking of me!

Last but certainly not the least.... my bff surprised me with all of these goodies! She made me this cutie pie in my favorite colors and then....

Gave me all of these stamps, two Stamping Bellas and a Gorjuss girl! But it didn't stop there....

She also bought me these at Teri's get together yesterday. Isn't she the bestest bff that you could ask for! Thanks Joy, I truly treasure your friendship!

I also have a bunch of goodies that my sweet blogging sisters gave me (even though I couldn't make Teri's get together). I will post these tomorrow, you ladies are the best!

Another Crystal Effect card

Ok, I'm not boring anyone with another Crystal Effects lacquer job, lol. I've been using it on everything lately and just love the "effect", hahaha, that it gives the image. Made this adorable Emma Mermaid from C.C. Designs and used a bunch of scraps that I had. This particular card is for my husband's grandmother's birthday. She loves the color blue.

The one thing is since it is so shiny, the pics come out all blurry, but you get the idea. Added some pearls around her hairline and waist too. Just wanted to thank everyone for their wonderful comments and for stopping by. Kyoko and Linda, I will tell Joy that Luscious lips is off limits, lol! Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend everyone!

*Just a quick note, Lacey at Hand Stamped by Lacey is having a huge blog candy giveaway for hitting 100k, go check it out!

Fairy and Crystal Effects

Going to a first birthday and wanted to make something sweet and colorful. Decided to use my C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Gretel and SU Crystal Effects to lacquer her hair and boots. Been really addicted to this technique and I think it adds a little something to the image. Enjoy and aloha!

My OCS partner

Kyoko was my OCS partner this month. She is so sweet and she loves the color purple. Made her this shaker card with lots and lots of purple!

The OCS is a "one card swap" and was created by my gf Teri. If you are interested, she usually has sign ups right before the end of the month. It really is a lot of fun and you should check it out!

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Teri's Birthday Gift

Teri's 21st birthday was on the first and Joy and I met her for lunch on Friday to celebrate. We went to Dave & Busters and had so much fun. I thought I would share the gift that I made for her.

I found the tutorial for this tote bag here. Teri loves pink and she mentioned that she liked the Fairy from the Gorjuss Girls, so I incorporated it all into her gift. Hope she liked it!

Pop up gc holder:

The tote bag:

All wrapped up:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!
