Worlds Best Father


Hello and happy Friday, I think we just might get away with no rain today.   Today I am sharing my first Father's Day card for the year, I need to step it up a bit so I can get them done and mailed on time.   I am super excited because I made the card using the CTMH Artfully Sent cricut cartridge which was recently gifted to me by one of my scrappin' BFFs.  I am so thankful for the kindness and generosity of my friends.  The inspiration for wanting to make this card came after I watched a video from Joy over at Obsessed with Scrapbooking earlier this week.  I definitely need some more practice using this cartridge, The manual says you can cut the card at a size 7 but I couldn't so I cut it at 6.75.  I only have the Expression because I prefer  cutting directly from the cartridge.  I am sharing this card for the masculine challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.  Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Whatever Wednesday


Hello and welcome, it has been a while since I had a whatever Wednesday post!  More rain and cooler temps again today.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using this week's sketch from Mojo Monday.  I created this card using  scraps of paper from my stash, the pattern paper came from the My Mind's Eye Happy Day 6x6 paper pad.  The stitched circle die  with the sentiment is another die from China, I added some party pink glimmer mist to the card base, added a few sequins and the card was done.  I am still shopping my stash, day 24 of no craft shopping.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful Wednesday.

Monday Musings


Hello and happy Monday, it is cloudy and rainy here.  I don't feel like working, I'd rather be in the bed with the covers pulled over my head!  My daughter left for her minimester this morning and of course we were late leaving  home because we were up late last night finishing up some last minute packing.  Today's card is one that I created using some of the unbranded dies ordered from China, they were gifted to me by one of my scrappin' BFFs that ordered duplicates.   I just cut the top layer with the die three times, stamped the sentiment and added some colored sticker dots, colored the card base under the cutouts  with TH distress inks and this card was done.   I'm sharing this card for the Cardz TV Mailbox Smiles Anything Goes Challenge #2.  Take care, I hope you'll come back again soon.

Tuesday Musings


Hello and happy Tuesday, more nice weather in the forecast!  Today I am sharing a shaker card that I created for a sweet seven year old little princess who is celebrating her birthday this month!  The cupcake pattern paper is from the My Minds Eye Hootenanny 6x6 paper pad.   I used the Enjoy stamp and die set from Jillibean Soup for the first time it had been in my stash for a few months. Since I am on a no craft spending challenge I am shopping my stash which is good since I have goodies that haven't been opened/used.  I am sharing this card for the Cardz TV Card Crazy Crafters Anything Goes Challenge #1 and challenge #264 - Metallics over at Use Your Stuff, I use lots of sequins in my shaker!   Thank you for your visit, wishing you a terrific Tuesday!

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating Mother's Day with your family.

Feathers


Hello Wednesday, I started this post yesterday but never finished it so I am sharing it today.  Another cool day, we were out late last night so I am not ready to get my day started. I need to finish up my Mother's Day cards so I can get them in the mail.  Today I am sharing a card using inspiration from skerch #97 from  Sketch N Scrap.   When I saw the challenge #263 to use feathers on your project over at Use Your Stuff I decided to use this sheet of paper from the Amy Tangerine  Sketchbook 6x6 paper pad, I cut the quill from the Heritage cricut cartridge, I used some of the Dollar Tree washi for the border, stamped a sentiment, added a few enamel dots and the card was done.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hello and  happy Monday, not feeling very happy but I'm alive so I'm blessed.  Today I am sharing another the final card that I started on NSD but didn't finish until this morning.  It is another one of my signature clean and simple cards but I do like how it came out.  I used more paper from my scrap stash and a doily that I cut with a WeR Memory Keepers die and the dress stamp is from the Ranger Dylusions Couture set and I heat embossed the sentiment.  I'm sharing this card for the Just us Girls #392 word challenge, the word is Mother.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back soon.

National Scrapbook Day


Hello and happy NSD! I don't have any scheduled plans for today but chores,rest and play.  I am off to a good start in the play area as I have already created two cards.  Today I am sharing the first card which is a birthday card created with mostly scraps, the pattern paper came from a Becky Higgins Project Life 6x6 paper pad.  I am sharing this card for the CAS-ual Fridays pick 6 birthday card challenge.  I used six butterflies that I punched with a MS punch to which I added some stickles and some Candy Shoppe Jellies.  The stamp used for the sentiment is from the Casual Elegance stamp set from CAS-Hal Fridays.  Take care and enjoy your day.

Teacher Appreciation


Hello and happy Friday; it is currently raining outside.  My eyes are burning because I am still sleepy but I must get my day started.  Today I am sharing one of the teacher appreciation cards that I made for my daughter's teachers.  I made five but since I finished them at the last minute I didn't have time to take pictures.  I am happy  to report I am still on my spending ban so everything used has been in my stash for sometime!  This card  is for my daughter's History teacher, I used my Darice notebook paper embossing folder for the first time, the globe is a sticker, the sentiment is from the Beyond Birthdays cricut cartridge, and I  finished off this clean and simple card by added a few sequins.  Wishing you and yours a blessed weekend.
