Outer Banks Vacation Pictures :0)

Patrick and I in front of Hatteras Lighthouse.
We all LOVED Jason's Restaurant and Jason got a t-shirt from this place . It's not much to look at but the food is fantastic.
Jason and me on the ferry over to Ocracoke Island.

We are back :0)

We went on a well deserved vacation for 7 days to the Outer Banks in NC.
It was our very first family vacation and Jason and I have been married for almost 17 years now, so this was very special.
I will have lots of pictures to come :0)

Signs of Autumn Purse

My friend Lisa gave me the instructions to a wonderful tutorial that makes a purse that fits the 5.5 x 4.25 cards perfectly. You can purchase the tutorial HERE (scroll down).

I have made this purse with the signs of Autumn tv stamp kit by Gina K.

It turned out beautiful and I will fill it with cards and send it to my Mother -in law.

Here is my first card I made with it ....

I made a card today for the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge SC 241 and had lots of fun with this one :0)

I used a GinaK designs stamp for the flower and the sentiment is from Hampton Arts.

The paper is from one of my favorite places online called gotta pixel and it is digital paper.

I love digital paper cause I can literally match it with whatever project I am working on.

Let it Snow......

I finally got my card finished :0)
I tried my hand on a TRI-shutter card and thought it turned out really pretty. This is my first TRI-shutter card and I love the concept.
I hand beaded 7 pretty different color snowflakes for this one and used tons of glitter.
The card looks so much nicer in person the pictures just don't do it justice.

My inspiration for this card came from Michelle's blog right HERE

The tutorial for this card can be found HERE
