Girl Scout cookies delivery day

this is what my troop leaders front room looked like after we unloaded ALMOST 400 cases of cookies from their trailer to her front room...
and this was after we had loaded at least 1/3 of them into the cars of the people who picked up their orders...

Tri-fold birthday card for neighbor...

I have 5 boys that live next door and I don't really have a darn thing to make cards for boys...so, his mother said he likes red and black for colors and dogs and monkeys...and this is what I came up with...

Birthday tri-fold card...

Here is a tri-fold card that I did for my friends daughter for her birthday...she loves Jacob from Twilight and I could not find anything from Twilight last minute...so, I took a picture from a candy bar wrapper and used Tim Holtz memory glass to put the picture behind and then used the foil tape to seal the two pieces of glass together...I used the same method on the other side but with flowers...

Newest birthday cards for my husbands birthday...

Here are my lastest creations that I made for my husband....It is so hard to make cards for him when he is home so I did not make recipes for these since I had to make them on the sly with him walking around the house...LOL
this is the card that I made from me...the stamps are from a set I got at Michaels last year
and the monkey ribbon also is from there...

this is the card that I created for my youngest to give to her daddy...
the stamps are yet again from Michaels and the paper is also from there.

Most of the sock monkey paper is on sale there right now for 19 cents per sheet.

this is the card that I created for my oldest to give to her daddy.
the stamps are yet again from Michaels I got them there
last year or the year before...
