I am so thrilled to be in the top 16 in the card contest at Practical Scrappers!  This week we had this photo to inspire us to make a card for a boy/man.

I was inspired by the patterns in the beautiful quilt.
Here is my card.  You Make Me Happy

I made this for my DH, it was our 20th anniversary yesterday.  :)  I have to say that I just adore the "moustache" trend!  I love this Pebbles paper too!
If you have a minute, please go over to Practical Scrappers and vote for your favorite card!
Happy Friday, friends!

Nothing like a card contest to get the previously flat-lined mojo going again!  :)  Practical Scrappers is hosting a month long contest and I have made it through 2 cuts!  To enter the contest we had to submit a Valentine/Love card. 
Love this cute monster.
Our second card was a birthday card using polka dots.
This is one of my favorite color combinations ever.  I adore that floral Pebbles paper.  I found the felt flowers on clearance at Michael's.  I sprayed the large doily with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and then layered a large SRM Fancy Birthday Sentiment sticker on a small white doily.  I have to say, in real life the colors are more muted, I just couldn't get it to show on the photograph.  I used a Page Maps card sketch. 
If you get a chance, check out all 20 cards and vote your favorites!
It is a snow day here for us, the boys are very happy about it!  :)  Thinking about my friends on the east coast-stay safe!
Happy Friday, friends!

{silver, stitches & srm}

I {heart} SRM. 
SRM sticker sentiments changed the way I crafted. They made making cards so much easier for me.  I'm not a stamper.  I used a lot of rub ons and a lot of Thickers, but
that was very limiting. My friend, Val used a sentiment on one of her projects and I was hooked.  I found them at my LSS along with a tube and made my first project. 
Fast forward a year later and I'm on their Design Team - crazy.  And in the blink of an eye my term has ended.  :(  Who knew a year could go by so fast.  I worked with an amazing and talented team of ladies.  Susan has some fabulous things planned for SRM this year - I'm thrilled for her!  She is a wonderful sticker ambassador. 
Here is my final DT project.  I altered a picture frame for a Silver Anniversary gift.  I used stickers from the new wedding sets of Stickers By The Dozen, Labels By The Dozen and We've Got Your Border along with the black Sticker Stitches. 

Thanks for sharing my SRM journey with me this year! 
Happy Friday, friends!
