A set of All Purpose Cards

I wanted to do a little something for my mom, as she has gotten more involved in a women's group and know she will need some "all occasion cards". So, I still want to make some Birthday cards to add to the set but here's what I have so far. I made two of each of these.

I used two stacks of K&Company Designer paper slabs, Stampin Up punches, Stampin Up and other ribbons, Stamps of Life stamps and other misc. stamps.  She will really like these as she will have them on hand when she might need one at a moments notice.

A Package in the mail!

After being gone for a few days, I came home to two packages in the from Oh My Crafts, full of a variety of vinyl that I couldn't resist because of the great sale they were having. The other package was full of blog candy that I won from Sandy O at Here are all the goodies I received:
My mind is already moving with ideas that I can do with all these goodies. There is a Thoughts and Thanks stamp set, a stamp borders set, butterfly stamp set, bling, 3 spools of ribbon, a little tin box, tags, 2 sizes of 5 each chip board, rings, a small wooden box, a baggie with lots of little charms inside, some little clothes pins, two bottles of tacky glue, and two cute little teddy bears. I can't wait to get started on a project. Thank you so much Sandy for this box of fun! I appreciate it so much and look forward to more challenges and hops!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Weekend in Yosemite

We had a wonderful weekend with friends to Yosemite. My husband and I, even though we've been in Manteca (90 miles away) for almost 29 years, had never been there. What a beautiful place it is. The week before there was so much snow on the valley floor that we would have had a tough time getting in but when we were there, the waterfalls were gorgeous. We must have saw at least 20 of them. This is a photo of just one.

This is the ever popular photo that you see a lot. Halfdome is in the distance on the right hand side. There was still snow up there so we weren't able to go up that high.

This is our group taking a break in front of a very fast rushing waterfall. We could feel the mist from it where we were sitting.

If you are ever in California, this is a site to see!

CCCC # 17 Give a Hoot

Along with the challenge, I am also giving this card to a friend for her Birthday. We enjoyed a fun day at Senior Frogs on one of our trips to Mexico so you know there is a note about that inside, lol!

I used an A2 card base, K & Company mat stack, punch, stamp, and ribbon from Stampin' Up, assorted brads, and recollections cardstock. This was a lot of fun, hope you like it as much as I know my friend will!

cccc# 16

I like the Pagoda cartridge. The paper I used was DCWV Lemon Flower mat stack. I used recollections cardstock for the card base. The ribbon is from American Crafts and the stamp is a set from Joann's.
