Some More Cards... and BIG Project Reveal

Hello everyone!  I made some more cards and will finally reveal my BIG project/goal I was working towards......

I made 8 of these cute, Birthday cards.  They are fun, comorful and were so easy to make!  I used my Cuttlebug and my Happy Birthday embossing folder as the background, and Used the Cupcake from Wild Card to create these!  I also glued a Birthday candle to the front!  The isinc is also Cuttlebugged as well.  I like how these turned out and really happy with the paper that I used for the cupcake wrappers...  I think it works very well together!  I hope you like it too!  :o) 

Next are some other simple cards I made for the stash.  I used the same Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder and used a pink glitter pen to highlight a few areas on the design and then used some lime green floss to add a bit more color.  I love the simplicity of it!  The inside has pink polka-dot paper trimmed with an edge punch.    Also, a very simple Thank You card created with my Cuttlebug and some more floss, light blue and white to accent.  Then I made a Father's Day Card!  The cut is from Designer's Calendar, and I used a rub-on for the sentiment. 

Next I made a Thanksgiving Card...  I know... Thanksgiving?  Maybe it was because I already did some Christmas Cards and felt like Thanksgiving was over-shadowed (like it normally is around that time of year).  But wanted to make one anyway!  The "Give Thanks is from Wild Card I do believe or DC...  don't remember 100%, and the pumpkins are from Gypsy Wanderings as are the leaves. 

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!!  So this is what I have been working towards....  I was part of a show...  My Dear SIL sells Premier Jewelry, and a friend of hers sells for Thirty-One, along with a Pampered Chef Rep, and a Scentsy Candle Rep.  I was asked to participate so for 2 and a half weeks I have done nothing but go to work and then come home and craft.  HOLY MOLEY!  I am SO exhausted with doing all of that and trying to build up a stash, make a display board, count my envies, I even made little business cards for myself.  What a crazy last couple of weeks and crazy day yesterday. I was so nervous and excited and overwhelmed and scared and any other emotion I could think of yesterday!  But I wouldn't have traded it for the world.  It was a good experience, and I learned a lot.  So, I thought I would share my little display area with you.  The letters are cut from Gypsy Font ( never used those letters before, and I am so glad I found this font - It's Gorgeous!

 So there!  That's the big thing I was working towards...  I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects and I appreciate each and every one of you for taking a look at my blog and for taking the time to do so!
