It's Shark Week!

Guess what today is everyone? It is the start of Shark Week on the Discovery channel. A bunch of shark loving friends got together and decided to make sharky cards and post a little blog hop to celebrate. Thought a red card base would be appropriate for this one. I usually don't use red but there is someone in our group who loves red. It is always fun to play with a color or technique that is unfamiliar. Also used some washi tape and a new sentiment stamp created by Jill and sent to everyone in the blog hop group. Isn't it "jawsome"? Now hop on over to the other shark lovers and see what they created.

A few weeks back I sent a bottle of cherry bounce to my friend, Cheiron, and was totally surprised when she sent me a thank you card. Just look at those sparkly, shiny cherries. She really outdid herself. I don't know how she got them to look so good but I know I just want to eat one. It is such a pleasure to get a card in the mail during these days of email and text messages. So many electronic devices to master and so little time. Thank you, Cheiron, for taking the time to create something so wonderful to send to me. I would love to challenge anyone reading my blog today to create a card for a friend and send it out. You will put a smile on his or her face.

Was thinking about my friend, Tracy, and decided to make a card celebrating her new baby boy. He is such a cutie and I am sure he is the new star in her life. So I dusted off my nestibilities star set and put him front and center. Then I repurposed some washi tape that came from a package from, Jill. Love that stuff and am still getting the hang of using it. Hope she doesn't mind. Everything changes when you have a child and I just thought a little message from me would let her know that I was thinking about her and her new little star.

For Cath (sans CHA) with Love Blog Hop

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. But sometimes it is just too much. It's that way for Cath this year at CHA. Or should I sat NOT at CHA. You might know Cath from over on the Moxie Fab World blog. She is the fabulous lady that always kept us up to date with all things CHA and brings us so much inspiration on her blog. She is not at CHA this year because she has a nasty pain in her shoulder. Must be so hard for her to be at home when there is so much going on in Anaheim. My friend, Cheiron invited me to participate in the blog hop to cheer her up so here I am. Hope you feel better soon, Cath!

Have fun checking out all the other gals that made a card to celebrate
