7 years already?

My anniversary is Sunday. I've been married for 7 years. It seems impossible. Time goes by so fast when you are in love, I guess!

My hubby's favorite color is orange. It was a great opportunity to pull out PTI's Orange Zest, which I usually only use around Halloween! I was also excited to use Enjoy the Ride, which I finally got around to purchasing and came in the mail today. I thought that this masculine card was the perfect opportunity to try Nichole's frame technique.

Here is what I came up with.

The frame really helped finish the card, I think.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stylish Blogger Award

I am totally honored that sweetie pie Amy Beth over at Bearpaw Studios gave me a Stylish Blogger Award. The only blog award I have received. Thanks, Amy! Sorry it has taken me so long to get around to posting!

So the rules are I have to share 8 things about myself and then pass along the award to 8 others bloggers I find stylish.

Here are 8 thing about me.

1. I wasn't sure if I wanted to be a mother, but the minute I became one, I knew I was always meant to be a mom.

2. I am a certified yoga instructor, but haven't taught since I had my 2nd child.

3. When I was 24 years old I went to a Stampin Up party that my now husband's cousin invited me to and said, "Making cards just isn't for me." LOL!

4. I am terrified of snakes.

5. I secretly like it when my kids crawl in bed with me in the middle of the night when they are sick or have a bad dream. I cherish these years when they are young and still want/need to cuddle.

6. I am one of those people who actually like to exercise, even though I don't look like I am.

7. I was born a country girl, but have always been a city girl at heart.

8. I am grateful that Papertrey Ink not only expanded my stamp collection, but also my circle of friends.

And now to pass the award on.

1. Laurie at Soapbox Creations

2. Dana at Kismet, Art, and Life

3. Chrissy at Gifting It

4. Michelle at Michelle's Crafting Corner

5. Gretchen from This n' That

6. Michelle from I am Derby

7. Kara from KandRdesigns

April 2011 Papertrey Blog Hop

I have been MIA for about a month. Life has been super busy and I just haven't had time to post. I have made a few projects, just haven't had any extra time to get pictures and blog. But, I am hoping life will be slowing down a big now, just not too much! :)

So, there is nothing like a PTI blog hop to get you back into blogging. This month's challenge is to create a project for a man or boy. Read all the details here.

I decided to use Boy Basics: Out of This World. My 3 boys LOVE that set. I am constantly die cutting and coloring little rocket ships and moons for them to run around the house with. So, this card was inspired by them.

Here is what I came up with.

There is nothing really unique about the card, but I had fun making it. Thanks DJ, Dean, and Dash for giving me 10 minutes and letting me keep one of the rockets I die cut and colored for this project. Love you.

Thanks for stopping by.
