Teacher "Thank You" gift set

Hey Yall,

Since I am forced to be in my house recovering from surgery...LOL...I try to play in my craft room as much as my body will let me.  (which is only about 30 min at a time) SO... I though I would make my sons' teachers a little something to say "Thank You!"

I recently discovered "lilybeedesign" and I am totally LOVING all the products.  The papers I have in this project come from the "Buttercup" collections.  MAN OH MAN they are fabulous!

The card and tag are 3x5
Paper - lilybeedesign "Buttercup" collection (ribbon I got free as a gift when I got my papers)
Ink - Tim Holtz "antique linen"
 Stamps - CTMH "Say it in Style" and "For Every Occasion"
Various chip board pieces from my stash
Sizzix Dies - Dingbats #2 , Road Signs, and Tim Holtz "Hanging Sign"
I hope yall love these papers as much as I do.  I think this paper pad will be gone in no time! LOL

After Surgery

Hey Yall,

Well I had my foot surgery and well lets just say it was not so good.  More surgeries in weeks to come. 

Yes, this is a wheel chair...I didn't see this coming.  I will be posting when I can.  All though I'm not sure how much that will be.  Basically my foot will stay broke till my next surgery in about 3-4 weeks.  Crazy I know. 

BUT looking at Yall's creations are helping me along!!!!!  Keep crafting!!!!

CTO #58 - DT Project

Hey Yall,

I hope Yall me join my self and the other DT member over at CTO for challenge #58, "Just Because", must use pink!  Here is my take on it.  I hope Yall like it!!

Paper pack - Papertrey Ink "Text Style, It's Official"
Card base - Papertrey Ink "True Black" 6 x 4 1/4

I wanted to use as many of the patterns as I could.   Used a 1 inch circle punch and tore the paper for added interest.  I also used pop dots as much as a could between layers and cicles. I also colored in some of the little squares with a white pen.
Ink - Tim Holtz "Black Soot"
Pen - White Jelly Roll Pen
Phrase Stamp - CTMH "Say It Ink Style"

I really like the way this card came out.  It could be for anyone and any age.  I can't wait to see what Yall come up with!!
