Taking a Break

Hi all, I just wanted to let you all know that I am taking a break from crafting and posting regularly on my blog and Facebook.  This also includes anything related to Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, but as always, if anyone needs anything, you are more than welcome to email me at sparklingapple17@hotmail.com or message me on Facebook.

My baby is due in July, and unfortunately, this pregnancy has been quite rough for me.  Since I haven't been well enough to keep up with anything, I decided going on maternity leave would be the best for my family right now.  I do still plan to post every once awhile, as I will continue to make an occasional birthday or event card that I'll need for my family and friends.

Happy Father's Day Tool Set Card

My FIL loves golf, but I've been a slacker this year and didn't get any new golf images.  By the time I got around to making Father's Day cards...I didn't have time to order stuff online.  I did some local shopping at Impress and got these fun tool dies instead.

I don't have a handy man image of my own...but I'm thinking Ollie will be great for this in the future. :) I haven't bought MME paper in a long time, but I was excited to see that one of their necessities packs was different wood grains.  I know I will get lots of good use out of this paper pack!


Memorial Day weekend, my In-laws also came up and helped us finish the nursery.  This was also kindof a combo thank you card as well.  Here's the inside of the card and the banner is blank, but that's where Brent and I signed the card.


You've probably noticed that all my cards have been heavy on embellishments.  I've got hundreds of enamel dots, lol, so I figured I better start using them!!  I'm starting to feel like all my cards are starting to blur together...but I still love them.  Well, I hope you all have a great Friday!  It's almost the weekend!

Farming Oliver Father's Day Card

Since my dad is retired and lives on 10 acres of land with chickens and goats...I tend to make him a lot of farming themed cards.  While my dad was working...I was also the daughter who always bought my dad a new tie, lol.  This year I thought I would do something different...but then I fell in love with the Herbs and Honey paper and that was the end of that.

I love this color combo and it reminds me a lot of Nook and Pantry.  I can tell that this is gonna be one of my new favorite paper packs.


One the embellishment packs that coordinates with this paper pack are these fun little bags.  I thought it would be perfect to put my dad's gift card in there.  The bag was a bit longer than the gift card, so I sewed a bit on the bottom to get the card to be where I wanted it.


I didn't really get my dad a Starbuck's card...it was just the empty gift card that I had available at the time I took the picture.  Brent and I also signed the card on the blank white banner strip.

I used Mojo Monday Sketch #348 for my card.


 I hope you all have a wonderful Friday...it's almost the weekend!!
