Today was such a beautiful day here in Modesto Ca. It was so nice I thought I would have a Yard Sale and sale a Bunch of stuff that collect dust here my Garage. Well I did pretty good. And sold most of my stuff. The rest will be handed down to the Good Will.

I also have  2 cards to share with you today the first one is similar to the last post I did a few days ago. I just changed up the colors and the sentiment. and the second I used a Die Cut from Simon Says Stamp and used the awesome Blending Technique. I just love the look of blending colors together and its a Fun technique.

KEEP CALM and Wear Converse

Hi Everyone! Today I have 2 projects to share with you.
The First one is  a card I made for a boy. Normally it's so hard for me to come up with masculine cards. But Simon says stamp kind of made it easy for me. I used there All Boy stamp set.
And I also want to share that I used some Old school cutting tools. Do Y'all remember the scissors with all kinds of fun shapes?
Yea These are it!!!

I used the scallop shape scissors to cut the bottom portion of the Card stock and added some pattern  paper from Fancy Pants.


 I have a pair of red and a pair of white. And Love them!

The 2nd project I made a POP UP gift card holder. There is so many tutorials you can find on Pinterest! Who doesn't Love PINTEREST!!! I can spend all day going through so many fun stuff. If my Husband and Grandson would let me...  LOL
You can find this card holder  Here .

I would Love for you to leave me a comment
