Happy Birthday Mom!

Card Pattern: Three Is the Charm from the How-to Book Originals

Tonight I needed to create a special birthday card for a very important person, my mom! I knew I wanted to use blue since its her favorite color. As I paged through my How-to Books this pattern popped out. I was able to use lots of new items in this card. I love the buttons!

Mini Purse for a Friend

My dad had an automobile accident in December. There were a couple of days when he needed to borrow my car so he took me to work. Then Randi, a coworker and dear friend, was able to bring me home after work. I made this mini purse as a thank you.


But look at what is inside the purse! Yum!



My friend Stacey and fellow Close To My Heart consultant shared the instructions with me on how to make this darling project. It was taught to her by a Stampin' Up demonstrator. This shows that the paper crafting community rocks!
