Grandparents Day

Sunday is Grandparents Day!!! I found an adorable gift bag at Hobby Lobby and decided to make a matching card.

 I was going to make this interesting spinner card that had 2 folds and when you opened it there was something in the middle that spun matter what cardstock I used the card just felt too flimsy for me. So I turned an oooops card into a cute card by matting the "flimsy" card onto heavy cardstock. I embossed the card and cut the center out with my Sizzix Top Note. I cut the owl with my Cricut Destinations Cartridge.

Scrappy Saturday

I spent the last 11 hours with friends having a great time and scrappin my heart out. I finished up the cards for the LMNOP card swap, finished up the puppy book with my Treasure Box puppy kit, and I did 2 layouts.

This cards only requirement was we had to use scraps to complete it. Man did I have a TON of those! I used my new embossing folder from Stampin Up with those beautiful roses on it and inked them to make them pop.

The next card I made was an interactive card. My friend Cat told me about a neat idea of using pennies for a spinner card. A quick google search on the computer gave me the directions and voila.....I LOVE this card.
The butterfly spins around in circles from left to right.

After I finished the cards I did a few projects that just needed finishing touches. The last hour or so I worked on these two layouts.
This one is a picture of my Grandma and my Great Aunt Sharon- my Grandma requested this one so I will get it framed and give it to her.

I already have this one in a small frame at the house so I am taking this one to work in a frame. The stamp (in case it's too small to read in the picture) says
Once in a Lifetime You Meet Someone that Changes Everything.
