Fathers day card!

I posted this over at my other blog  But I thought I would share it here too! Since its crafty and all...........
I was feeling a bit crafty today so, I thought I would make my dad his fathers day card. I just LOVE making these cards especially because the whole time I am making it I think about him. See my dad lives about 2200 miles away from me and I miss him soo much. I moved away from home a long time ago, and the one think I miss most about "home" is my dad! He is a simple guy and that is one of the things I love the most about him. He is the type of guy that could tell you everything you need to know without speaking a word. We would sit at the kitchen table for hours not really saying much ( my dads not a big talker) and yet I learned so much. Thank you dad for being you!
Here is a card I know you'll love!

I got this idea from doing a google search for fathers day cards.... Then landing here.....

Thanks for sharing the instructions and the template for this card!! This is soooo my dad!

I have made the fish and the wave into svg's if anyone would like to have it... please feel free to email me. I would be happy to send it to ya.

Oh, did I mention.... THIS IS THE SCHOOL MY SON ATTENDS!!!!!!!

Lets just say I am very very very very UPSET!

Here is the link if you don't know what I am talking about.

I have created a new blog..... I don't get much time to craft these days. I never knew living in the country was so much work.... and fun. I am always doing something around my house but lately it hasn't been crafting. Sadly :(   I would love to share many things with you but for some reason I didn't really want to post it here. Just feels like this is a crafty only type place. Ya know? Anywayz, If you guys want to see what I am up too then head on over to

I am going to try and post there everyday, just to kinda let you know what I have been up to for the day. I will still post here but only if it is crafty. Then again I just might transfer everything over there. We will see how it goes. Much love to all ( 15) of you that have put up this far with my bad blogging!!!  LOL 

Cya Between the Almond Trees!!

B-day Decor and Invite

So I have been a little lazy in posting this, but I am taking time for my crafting today. My Daughters B-day was in Feb.... So a month later isn't tooo bad! haha!
I made the invites to look like concert tickets , printing on both sides. These took a long time but I LOVE the end results! I had to do many many test prints. I am sure there is an easier way to do it but I am not aware of that! LOL  Anywayz~ I love them and she loved them so it was well worth the time.

Then I made her "happy birthday" banner. I made it to match the invites! It was so cool looking I sooo did not want to take it down.
I have the disco ball svg if anyone wants it. Just dont have an account set up so you can DL from my blog. ( someday  hehehe)  Just shoot me an email and I will be glad to sent it to ya.

I made some purple stars to dress up the the shinny star garlin I got at the dollar store. I embossed them with the star folder and colored in all the black parts and also sanded the star to give it a 3d color look.

I am very pleased with this and had a blast making it.    Enjoy!
