A Hello Kitty Themed Post

I hope this post is finding all of you doing well.  I am so glad that today is Saturday. Let the weekend fun begin!  :)  Today I am going to share with you a tag that I made for a good friend.  I attached it to a bag

that I put a some Hello Kitty cards in. After I attached the tag to the bag I used my bow die cut to make a bow. I think the bow added a nice finishing touch to the tag.  What do you think?

The cards are so cute that I could not resist purchasing them for myself too.  :) Before I end this post I wanted to share with you a super cute picture that I took with HK last weekend at the grand opening of a Sanrio store locally that my daughter and I went to.

Check out the cute items that my daughter and I won and received for free. 

Have a great weekend!

Celebrating Chinese New Year

Happy Year of the Dog! Hope that everyone is doing well. Lately I have been much too tired to craft.  I hope that I will have more energy soon to craft.  I have only been crafting when a swap is soon to be due or if I really need to do make a project for an event or a person.  The latest projects that I worked on were for Chinese New Year.  I decorated tags and put a magnet on the back of them to put on different goodies.  This is the one that I made for friends.

This one was for family.

It was fun using the "dog" character from the Dandelion Design Chinese New Year set. Here are a few pictures from our my family and I celebrating Chinese NY.  My hubby, my kids, and I wore our Chinese clothes.  Here is a picture of my hubby and I

and a picture of my sisters and I.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!

A Special Gift and Card for a Dear Friend

I had the honor of celebrating a great accomplishment with a dear friend.  She was awarded a Honorary Service Award.  I am so proud of her!  I am so glad that I was able to celebrate with her this evening.  I surprised her with this card (I could not find my teacher stamp from The Greeting Farm so I used one that I thought would be the next best one that looks like a teacher. I used washi tape for the border, punches to make the balloons, a die cut for the congrats and the bow.)

and a gift.

Here is a picture of my friend and I at the award dinner.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good night and a wonderful Friday!

Valentine's Day and Lunar New Year

Happy belated Valentine's Day and Happy Lunar New Year! I hope that all you were able to spend some time with those that you love this week on Valentine's Day and show them some extra love.  Here are the gifts that I put together this year for family and friends.

My hubby took me out to lunch for Valentine's Day.

In the evening we took out kids out to dinner at a Japanese restaurant.  For their appetizer we ordered a heart shaped pizza for them.

I have not made any of my Chinese NY gifts yet so I will just end this post with this picture for New Years.  For those of you that celebrate Lunar New Years I am praying that each of you will have an amazing Year of the Dog with lots of blessings from above.

Have a wonderful President's Day weekend!

A Fun Secret Sister Tea Swap

Sorry I did not have a chance to write a post last week.  Time just seems to be whizzing by.  It just seemed like yesterday that 2018 started and now it's February.  LOL!  Anyways, today I will be posting pictures of the Secret Sister Tea Swap from December.  I had the pleasure of surprising my good friend Dori with some thing crafty

and with some goodies.

Cathy was my Secret Sister.  She made me a super bright and cheery desk organizer

and a stamp set with a coordinating die.

I can't wait to use them next Christmas to either make some fun cards or tags.  Recently I ordered some super cute stamps. I considered it a New Year's gift to myself.  :) Hopefully I get to ink them up soon to make some fun projects.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Retirement to a Dear Friend!

Yesterday a dear friend retired. I will miss her so much.  I appreciate all her love, encouragement, and prayers over the years. She always has the right words to say to brighten my day.  I got her a little some thing for her retirement gift and included this card that I made for her.

It has been awhile since I have colored with my Copics.  I felt a little nervous coloring with them.  Here is a picture of my friend and I before we said our "good-byes."

May God bless her in amazing ways as she starts this new chapter in her life.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday and a nice week ahead!

Some Crafty Creations from Friends

I hope that all of you are doing well.  So far this year I have not done any crafting.  I hope to be able to have a chance to do some today.  Today I will be posting the crafty Christmas cards that I received this year.  I usually receive more handmade cards, but it is totally understandable since it is such a busy time of year.  This card is from Karen.  She always makes the best scenes for her cards.

The second card is from Cary.  What a cute snowman.

Thanks Karen and Cary for taking time to make me a Christmas card.  Before I end this post I'd like to post super cute stamps that I just ordered.

I guess you can call it my New Year's gift to myself. :)  I can't wait to ink them up to make some fun cards soon.  Have a wonderful weekend!
