Monsterously Good Birthday

I won the cute Critters & Cogs set from Polly Craft and could not wait to use it. Although I like all the images in the set, for some reason, this big hairy guy is my fav and I had to break him out first. I think he reminds me of "Where the Wild Things Are". So I made this birthday card for the son of a friend who is turning 6.

The "6" was made by using my Cricut and George cartridge out of an old cereal box. I love recycling!

Updated: mygrafico is having a sale for National Scrapbooking Day. 30% of everything until midnight tonight (May 1). Check out the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff store.

Thank you for looking! Have a wonderful week end.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
