Labor of Love

Hi There!

I made this cute baby card for the Monday challenge #5 at My Craft Spot. 

The bird is cut from Nate's ABC's at 2 1/2 inches.  The Labor of Love Stamp is from Pink By Design, Baby Love.  Recollections pearls and lace trim.   
I'm hoping to work on more cards tonite after the kids go to bed, since it seems like nothing is going to get done until then, haha. 

Thanks for looking!
Have a great night!

New Stamps and a Mother's Day Card

Hi There!

Two days in a row?!?!  What's going on???  Haha.
I ordered some new stamps a few weeks ago from Pink by Design.  I desperately needed new "saying" stamps and they were having a sale....you know how that goes.  I was looking at them last night at 3 in the morning because I was SUPER awake still (must be feeling better....) and I had this idea for the card I made.  These stamps are AWESOME!  They stamp soooo well!  I literally pulled it out of the package put in on a block and it stamped perfect from the first time.  I've never had clear stamps stamp perfect for me the first time.  :)  I guess it's a good thing that I had already ordered more a few days ago.... haha

 The stamps are from the Our Mothers set.  Martha Stewart coarse glitter, Recollections pearls, heart Nestabilities and Pink Paislee 365 Degrees patterned paper.  The layout is an older Mojo Monday sketch from January that I had sitting my my desk.

Pink By Design is also having a free shipping sale that lasts until the 25th.  Go get some stamps!!!  Unfortunately I was too impatient to wait a few days or I could have taken advantage of that sale too...haha Oh well......at least I'm getting my stamps! :)

Happy Friday!

Easter Cards

Hi There!

Here are some cards I've been working on over the last week.  I didn't get too much done, my little guy had a double ear infection all last week and then decided to get me and his brother sick too.....so nice of him!  I've NEVER been sick as much as I have this winter, it's ridiculous! 

This is a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch card, cute and simple.  I used the doodlecharms cartridge for the bunny and a Stampin up! punch for the oval.

Whipper Snapper bunny  (I love him!), stickles, glossy accents

another Whipper Snapper bunny, Copic spica pens for the glitter and glossy accents.

Kinda plain and boring, but it got some of the scraps off my desk!

I'm entering the top card into a few challenges:
Fantabulous Cricuts Challenge Me Monday #56- Use a bunny or chick
Wacky Wednesday #35- Easter theme

Thanks for looking! 
Have a great Easter!!! (since I'm sure I won't be back till next week at the rate I seem to be going lately...UGH!)

Party Hat

Hi There!

Here's a card I made for a few challenges.  I made 3 different birthday cards over the weekend and didn't take pictures of any of them before they went out..I hate when I do that!

This card is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card.  The hat is from Doodlecharms and the happy birthday is a $1 stamp from JoAnns.  I've had this tinsel string forever and thought it would make the hat a little less boring haha.

My wise friend

Hi there!

It's been a week already since I last posted, geez!  I've been busy making notecards for my etsy store (which I still have to list) and working on wedding shower invites for a girl at work. 

This is a card that I made using a Lettering Delights SVG file.  I LOVE the SVG's there!!  Right now they're on sale too.....I grabbed a few sets last week. :)

I'm entering this in 2 challenges this week,Wacky Wednesday #32 and Cooking with Cricut  both were to use something funny/punny.

The stamp is an old CHF stamp set by Kim Hughes, and the paper is some really old DCWV stack paper (I'm telling you I have enough to last 3 lifetimes, easily!!)

Thanks for stopping by!
