catch up day...project #9

I'm a couple of days late posting my projects...I got caught up yesterday and now able to post them. What can I say, life is getting in the way of my project making...but a promise is a promise.

So with that said, here is project #8. I love this card...the rhinestone buckle and black satin ribbon really make this card great...enjoy!

Project #8: Gift Set

I'm going to be honest...I really didn't have time to create a card last night. I'm working on samples for a couple of customers and wanted to get them done for today, so I hope you don't mind - this is a project I completed a while ago, but I must say it's still one of my favorites. Set includes 6 short notes, 6 regular sizes note cards and a box of covered chocolate Hershey nuggets.

Enjoy your Wednesday...

project #7 - Cupcakes Anyone???

This was so so stamping, and the best thing
about this card...the patterned paper and sticker came in a 8X8 scrapbook kit - but you know me, I really don't buy anything to make a scrapbook's about making a great card for me. K & Company makes the scrap kit, it's called Birthday!
Have a great Tuesday...

no one can stop me now...project #6

Happy Monday everyone. I'm having such a great time creating cards...yesterday I made this one and I really do like this little monkey...I'm not sure if I will actually use this one as one of my father's day cards but I picked up this stamp over a year ago and have been wanting to get it out and play with it! Enjoy, have a great day!!!

5th project!!!

I wanted to share something that happened to me the other day...I'm working on a super great project (details at a later date) and I needed to shop around a little. I went to Half Price Books and was standing in line when this sweet lady came up to me and offered me her 20% off coupon. I thought that was the sweetest thing ever!

You know I usually always let the person behind me at the store go ahead of me if they only have a couple of things, I also give coupons to others if I'm in a store and have decided not to purchase anything. Someone did purchase a drink for me in the drive-thur at Starbucks and man that really made my day! And another time a customer gave me a huge tip at a craft show because she saw me give a little girl something for free because the little girl didn't have enough money to purchase something for her mom...I guess what goes around comes around!

Oh, yeah, my next is the photo!

Wes isn't impressed...

Take a look at the picture...this isn't Hey Cupcake down on South Congress in Austin. Funny looks the's the story from Austin American Statemen...

Austin's Hey Cupcake has filed a federal lawsuit that accuses a trailer cupcake business in Indiana of copying the appearance of its retail trailers.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Austin, said that the Cupcake Camper in Noblesville, Ind., operates out of an Airstream trailer with a large, three-dimensional cupcake with pink frosting on the roof — similar to trailers used by Hey Cupcake.

Hey Cupcake owner Wes Hurt's lawyer Robert Kleinman said that it just seems "beyond coincidence" that the look and feel of the Indiana trailer business, which opened last year, is so similar to Hey Cupcake, which has been operating in Austin since 2007. He said that Hurt hopes to expand his company nationally and internationally and that customers may mistakenly think that the Cupcake Camper is somehow related to Hey Cupcake.
