Ruffle Card

Oh! My friend, Erin, bought me this GORGEOUS ruffled shower curtain and I wanted to give her a special thank you card that was also ruffled. It took me some time to finally come up with the concept of how I was going to accomplish this, along with the idea of what to use. I wanted white, but couldn't find it anywhere! So, I decided to use purple, since they are K-State fans (trust me, it greatly pained the red & blue KU fan in me to make this card purple!) It turned out very pretty! I discovered a new love for rubber cement in the process, too! :) Enjoy!

Have a great day!

Easter Votives

Good morning! Last night I FINALLY got to visit my craft room and get something made! It was such a wonderful time! I've missed creating with paper so much, but I've needed to put it aside for a while to focus on some other habits I needed to develop...I don't really like making myself be disciplined, but once you've got those things down, it's easy and I've found that I have way more time to relax because I'm not always stressed about getting things done! Anyway! On to my creations... I wanted to make a little gift for a couple of friends, so I saw some little votive holders out there and thought it was an amazing idea! I took the instructions for these little tissue holders and just altered the size a bit to make these votive holders. I decorated them up a bit more than I normally would have so that I could enter them in the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challange this week. Here are a couple different views of the holders. Sorry they are missing the votives! Must pick those up at lunch today! Enjoy!

Have a wonderful day!

Edifying on a Budget

My husband said something like this while we were having lunch today & I thought it was wonderful, so I made a simple poster out of it. Please feel free to use it, but let them know where you got it. Thanks!
