Perfect Pineapple


Today I have a card I made for a coworker. I used the retiring background stamp Pineapple. I adore this card and almost didn’t want to give it away! Enjoy!

I heat embossed the Pineapple and the Congratulations saying. And then used a gold brad to match. 


Well hello!

I haven’t written a blog post in four years! I’ve been working for four years… I wonder if they are related!! Actually they aren’t. If they were, I wouldn’t have been creating this whole time. Which I have been doing, I promise. I honestly think it has to do with Pinterest. Since discovering Pinterest, I’ve become completely enamored and have spent many, many an hour pinning away. 

From now on though, I’m going to post more. And with that, I have my first giveaway for a brand new ink pad. It’s elegant eggplant and it’s Stampin Up! brand. I absolutely love Stampin Up! and their ink pads provide great coverage. They are super inky so you barely have to push your stamp into the pad. 

Comment if you’d like to win and I will pick someone.

And I’ll post tomorrow with a recent card I made. 


Decorated Keyboard

I have seen this on Pinterest and I finally decided to do it.
1. The washi tape I bought. Bought it from a store on Etsy. Website .

2. Cleaning my keyboard. Used rubbing alcohol to make sure the little spaces between were clean too.

3. Finished keyboard. The washi tape is nice and you can see through it if you don’t know which letter is which.


Pikes Peak

We went to the top of Pikes Peak via the Cog Railway. It’s a little pricey, but worth it I think. The boys had a fabulous time. You are supposed to drink lots of water because of the possible altitude sickness. The second picture is of my oldest having to “go” in one of our cups because he couldn’t hold all of the water he drank. It’s a long train ride!

The next day, we went to the Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings. They are quite small compared to Mesa Verde, which has the largest cliff dwellings in the US, but they are perfect for five year olds.
