because I CARE...

Like I said before I am liking this wrinkled lace look. I think it has just set this card off! I have a pad of this "fun" paper that I just need to start using so here I go!!! Nothing after a long stressful day like playing with paper. You can do all sorts of things to it to help you relieve stress such as wadding it up, rubbing it together, even putting it through a crimper and just really twisting that handle as you let all your stress OUT!!! And in the end you find that you made something beautiful. ENJOY!!!

It's a Guy Thing ~ August TCN

For those who missed this month's Therapy Card Nite, here they are! All kinds of cards for the guys in your life!!! If you are like me, you need them badly!!! I have 2 boys and 10 nephews!!! I need guy cards!!! Boys don't care for flowers and cutesy cards much let alone a teenager!!! So I think we got a good array for all this month.

This card has that rough embossed look to it and makes a great teen card!
Here is the Make a Monster card that I cased from the catalog and changed up just a bit. Did you notice? This is good for any boy in your life!!!

For those guys who love the grrreat outdoors, this is a card for them. It's also great for any guy you may have in mind.

And for those boys who love the dirt, here's one just for them.

Can't forget those handymen in our lives regardless if it's our fathers, husbands, or sons, this is a great card "tool" thank them for their work.
Hope you enjoyed these cards and if you missed TCN be sure to sign for September's Wheelie Wonderful Therapy Card Nite!!!

Ruffled Kindness

While at Adventureland in Des Moines with my bousterious boys, I did get a chance to stop at Archiver's and shop around a bit. While there I picked up some things to make a small scrapbook of our adventure. We also stopped by the Jordan Creek Mall and window shopped a bit and I just had to get them a piece of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory!!! YUM!!!

While there, I played around with the idea of this "scrunched lace" ruffle look. So after playing around with this stamp using different colors I finally got it to come out. I also used some gems to add a little sparkle! Hope you enjoy!!! Don't forget to leave a comment!

STAMPS: Eastern Blooms, Heard from the Heart
INKS: Real Red, Chocolate Chip
PAPERS: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Delightful Daffodil, White
ACCESSORIES: Eyelet Border Punch, gems (non SU)
