DO You?? :)

Hey everyone! Hope you had a fab weekend. My sister and boyfriend-in-law (hehe) came to visit and watch the UK- Uof L game with us. GO CATS! :) I have had a killer headache today and had plans to visit a friend and her family, but until this headache goes away,  I am not going anywhere- bummer!

Wanted to share a little card I made using the NEW January Card Kit from
I just love this kit! I was so grateful when CLaudia the owner sent part of it to me to play with- 10 cards later (Yes, 10! from 1/2 a kit- I was still looking at a few things left over!! I can't wait to share with you a bunch more of them :)

Oh- and several asked about my "bubbles" on my wall in the last post- funny story. I bought them for like 7 bucks from Lakeside Collection about 3 years ago. They are plastic fish tanks you hang on the wall!!! Well, I had the bright idea I wanted to use them in Matthew's room one day. Well, hubby didn't share my vision, lol, and so when I moved my craft area into it's own room, I decided they would be perfect for random ribbon, trims, string, etc! Ans I was right! THey add such color, are fun to look at and so easy to grab off the wall, pick something I want, and use it! I mainly put scraps, things not on spools, those little spools, etc. in them. Fun, functional, and not for fish anymore :) Glad you all like them!

Have a fab week and we will see you back tomorrow!

Ok, so I just googled those fish bubble tanky thingys :D and appartently they don't want to sell them anymore. :( Girl, hold on to yours, unless of course you would like to auction them off. J/K!!!

I really LOVE this card kit Claudia put together and I absolutely ADORE this card of yours!!! I remember back in grade school we would all write little "love" notes with the boxes etc...

Tiffanie said...

sitting here with my 7th grader and she wants me to make your card!! Really... I asked of course for who. No answer left room and played on her laptop. Probably facebook. Love the card. Good luck with the entries!

What a darling card! All the awesome texture and color makes it so much fun. And thanks for clearing up the bubbles on the wall question, LOL! Somehow can't imagine how they work as fish tanks, but I love how you re-purposed them!!
