Money Tree

Who say money doesn't grow on trees?
This is another project I did using the Wishing Tree stamp set. I made a Checkbook cover. I thought about how cool is this when you write a check and you have this checkbook that has dollar signs on it. If you are interested in this stamp set-check out this link:

Hello everyone !!!
I can tell it's getting close to the holidays. You know why?
My work is never done-lol !!!
I finished this card last week and I am just posting it now.
I had this design from an SCS challenge-using Pearls. If you happen to notice the background-I did a little bit of brayering and it came out really nice. The stamp I used is from Pink Poison- Wishing Tree.

Seven !!!

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to you all !!!

I was really strucked by an e-mail that I got from a friend of mine. Nothing out of the ordinary but the content was totally awesome.
To make the long story short, it was about a teacher asking a group of students about writing a list of what they think are the Seven Wonders of the World ( Great Wall, Pyramids etc) and this girl in the group said that she was having trouble with her list because there were so many. When the teacher asked her what she has on her list, this is what she came up with:

1. To SEE...

2. To HEAR...

3. To TOUCH...

4. To TASTE...

5. To FEEL...

6. To LAUGH...

7. To LOVE...

The things we overlook that are simple and ordinary and sometimes taken for granted are truly wondrous-which only means that the most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man. How touching !!!
I thought this would be a nice way to pass on being Thanksgiving and all- We have a lot to be thankful for especially the family and friends that surround us.

Thanks for stopping by.

5-Petal Poinsettia

Class Project # 1
It's that time again to share my Class Projects and hope that you find inspiration and ideas to your own projects.

I am loving this set Spotlight on Christmas.
You can use your punches on every single stamp
image. Int his card, I used my 5 -petal punch to make this poinsettia flower. The main background is raised, so is the poinsettia. The ribbon is glued to the back of the main background. Using your Rose Red marker, I added the dots to the scallops. Using the 1/4 inch Kiwi Kiss punch paper, glue it below the sentiment and used CE to adhere the dew drops. It just helps to bring the color of the dew drops.

Stamps: Spotlight on Christmas, Best Yet
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, DSP Kiwi Kiss
Ink: White Craft, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: dew drops, striped grosgrain Riding Hood Red ribbon

Birthday Treat

Vacation pics to share...
I have just come back from a great and
very refreshing vacation last week with my DH and kids.
I have been looking forward to coming back to
Napa Valley since we were there 4 years ago.
I fell in love with the place again. Visiting the
towns and vineyards, dining, enjoying the scenery
and the beautiful accomodation was more than
I hoped for. It was heightened by a 2 day trip in
San Francisco-where we did more dining and
crusing by the bay. I must say it was a real
birthday treat.

Here are some pics that are worth sharing
pic.1 Taken at the Meritage Vineyard in Napa Valley
pic.2 Beautiful Napa countryside

pic.3 Just driving around towards Geyserville and saw these beautiful row of trees.
pic.4 Old Geyser in Calistoga

pic.5 Took this pic while we were crossing the bridge.

pic. 6 Captured these 2 birds with
view of San Francisco.
