Thankful for You Card

Fall Greetings! I have been MIA lately, I apologize, I was making sympathy cards for friends that have recently lost loved ones, then 11 days ago a psychopath holed up for 4 days with a full arsenal and decided to snap killing 58 people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. I had several friends there thankfully are safe, but need some counseling. Others were not as fortunate. Bill Wolfe, Jr's family were staying at the RV Resort that I work at and he and his wife were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary at the concert, during the shooting they were separated. I had given their aunt and uncle the coroner investigators email address as it was still early on and everyone was trying to locate their loved ones. When I returned to work the following Saturday, I had a note thanking me for helping them find Bill, and it was not the outcome they had wanted. I made the family the sympathy card below:

I am finally feeling back to myself and had to whip up a more cheerful card for my cousin that sent me a Jaded Blossom gift card for my hospitality when they came to Vegas for a road trip.

Classy, Sassy and a bit Smart Assy...


Hello folks! How have you been? I'm a bit under the weather this week, stupid summer cold. But I'm still in the mood to craft and so I did. I have been thinking a lot about my sassy friend Cheryl lately and her beautiful daughter recently moved back to Florida to be closer to her mom. I made Cheryl the funnest card and I'm sending her one to give to her daughter, Alex.

Dolphin Birthday Card

Happy Sunday Y'all!

It's another hot, but beautiful day in the desert! 104 degrees today. So today I'm sharing a custom birthday card I made for a customer/friend of mine, Herb. His daughter's birthday is this month and he asked me to make her a birthday card, when I asked what she likes, he said "how do I know?! She works at the Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage." Mind you that Herb is an 80-something Army Vet, he's very sweet, though...so with not a lot to go on, I went with what I had to work with and voila!

Vacuum Card

Happy Sunday Kids!

Just wanted to share a card I made for my co-worker Mariela. She is so sweet and always says hello Jennifer to me when she works the same days. I say hola Mariela to her. Her English is okay she tries and I try my broken Spanish on her too occasionally. Well a few weeks ago, the vacuum she uses was damn near falling apart, held together with duct tape and barely sucked up lint on the carpet. So I thought I'd make her a card with the kawaii vacuum and cute sentiment from Jaded Blossom stamps! I tried to use Google translate for the sentiment but it got lost in translation. Needless to say she still liked the card and was not offended LOL!

Tateonna's Graduation Card

My final card for today...a graduation card for my 2nd daughter (my daughter's BFF). Last month she turned 18 and now she's graduating high school! There are a few flaws but I'm pressed for time as I'm trying to get this done before I have to go to work, yes, I'm missing her graduation :( I am SOOOO PROUD of Tateonna and her accomplishments! Love you Tater Tot!

Beach Boy 1 Thank You Card

Happy Saturday! Unfortunately today is my Monday since I have to work today. Bleh! Today I bring you a thank you card I made this card for one of our temporary residents at the RV Resort, his nickname is Beach Boy 1, and he's such a charismatic character! I bought him a slice of apple pie from our cafe because he had been missing it with his afternoon naps (he's battling cancer) and he surprised me with a $50 Buffalo Wild Wings gift card, unfortunately he left before I could give him this card. So I got this in the mail today. He works for the Beach Boys and offered to get me 4 tickets to the show here in Vegas in September. I can't wait!




Thanks for stoppin' by! I'm off to whip up a quick graduation card!

It's almost Valentine's Day, which means my birthday is around the corner. Yikes! So now that my swap partner received my card, I can post it here! Yay!
