Happy Birthday


Hello and happy Tuesday,  more seasonal temps in today's forecast.  Today's I am sharing a card  created at the request of another crafter for her mom's birthday.  I sure hope it arrives on time as the mail delivery has become so unpredictable.  I used more papers from the Recollections Backyard Table 6x6 paper pad, a Spellbinders Marisa Job Designs die set that I popped up with some foam and added a few heart gems and this card was done.  This was my first time using the dies set that has been in my stash for at least year and I have one maybe two more cards and the paper pad will be done!  I am sharing this card for the Cardz TV challenge #118

Happy Easter


Hello Saturday, mild temps and cloudy skies in today’s forecast as we continue to wait out the pandemic.  Today’s project share is another Easter card created using sketch inspiration from sketch #32 from Mary over at Cardz TV,   I used more papers from the Hello Easter paper pad,  my SLICE machine to cut the two bunnies and a sentiment stamp from the Cardz TV Happy Days stamp set, I don’t think it is available anymore.  I used some more of the Paper Studio gemstones for the eyes and stickles on the tails.  I am sharing this card for the Spring challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters and the Anything Goes challenge #111 at Cardz TV.

CIU #197 - Hopping Down the Bunny Trail (Easter)


Hello and Happy Friday, hope all is well with you and yours as we make our way through this pandemic.  Today’s project share is my latest design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog. The theme for challenge #197 is Hopping Down the Bunny Trail (Easter) and the sponsor is Taylored Expressions.

For my card I used the Doodlecharm, Wild Card 2 and Create-a-Critter  2 Cricut Cartridges.  The bunny paper is from the Echo Park Hello Easter 6x6 paper pad and the stamp used for the sentiment may be from Studio G .  I wanted to add a pattern to the basket but I couldn’t decide on which embossing folder to use.

Now that you’ve seen my project I hope you will visit the Cut it Up challenge  blog for more design team inspiration and decide to create and share your  Easter project for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Taylored Expressions.  The challenge starts today and ends Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at noon.

Thank you for your visit, stay safe and healthy!
