Hope everyone weathered out Irene safe and sound!! We had lost a couple big tree limbs in our front yard, but that didn't hurt my feelings since they are Chestnut trees and I want them down!! LOL So we clean up this afternoon and all is good again. We only lost our electric in the middle of the night and it was back on when I woke up at 4am. A little water in the old part of the basement, but not much and some of our field corn leaves were shredded by the wind and some blown over, so all in all we were very blessed!!
Well here are a few cards that are plain Jane cards. For the first one I used an SU punch and My Creative Time stamp set, "Wow! So Many Candles". Love Emma's stamps!! I am showing you a close up of the punched flower that I cut two of and placed on top of each other to add some dimension. I used all scraps for all my cards.
My next card I used a MS punch, a SU punch and SU new ribbon which I love, oh and pearls in a bottle. All scraps once again, except of course the card base. See I told you plain Jane cards.

My diaper cake is done!! I am pretty pleased on how it turned out. Is it perfect, no, but it is cute and I know my DIL will love it. This diaper cake is easy to make, the hardest part was wrapping the diapers around the tubes. It helps to have an extra pair of hands. LOL I have to give Scrapalette all the credit, as this is where I saw it for the first time. She has all directions on her blog. Here is a link: http://scrapalette.blogspot.com/2011/08/diaper-tricycle.html

Or at least I'm hoping that I can pull it off! LOL So hang with me and hopefully I will have pics up tomorrow.

Ok I know it is a little early, but I wanted to show this because I got a lot of pics in this little mini. It is made of empty toilet paper tubes. I used 4 of them, smashed them flat, covered with cute paper and embellished. I made this one for our cousin. Sarah and Bret have trick or treated together since they were little. I still have to make our yet, just haven't gotten to it. LOL Soon though! I used Fabulous Finds to give myself some more room for pics, and I used Hello Kitty Font for my boo! Some punches and other embellies. I also use some die cuts that I cut out and never did anything with. Yep, have a whole box of them. Do you??? Please tell me that I'm not the only one!!

This is a banner I made for our newest granchild who is due to arrive any day now! We know it is a boy. I used Birthday Bash Cricut cart for the banner as well as the font. I used twine to tie it all together. Made my rosettes and got a little over zealous with them, but that's ok since it is my first banner. Live and learn! LOL Pattern paper is by Heidi Grace and solid cardstock is by Bazzill.

I made a card that I was inspired to try by Suzanne. She made flowers by taking 8 1" circles and folding into a "v" like look. I think it turned out cute! LOL The buttons I used are from SU. I also used double side paper for my 1" circles.
