Mother's Day

It has been a very busy week, this is my first card for this week. I did not get to participate in any of the challenges this week. I have not had time hardly to visit other blogs that I follow, please forgive me. I have missed not being able to check out all the beautiful and skillful work everybody puts into their cards, I have gotten a lot of great ideas. Now if I can just find time to put them to use. With May just around the corner I will be more busy than I was this week, May is always a very busy month for us.
I did find the time to do one of my Mother's Day Card today. I really like this Sarah Kay stamp, "Time for Apple Pie". The paper I used was DCWV "The Luxury Stack" and Basic Grey "Wisteria Paper Pad". I used a Martha Stewart edge punches for the bottom and along the side. I sewed lace around the image and across the top for some added touches. I used some edge dies with the cuttlebug to dress the inside of the card.
Thank you for dropping in and leaving a comment. See you again soon.

Up, Up and Away

Good-Evening everybody I just returned home from a night of scrapbooking with friends. We will continue in the morning for a day of scrapbooking and card marking. We always have a great time when we get together exchanging ideas and talking.
This cute little card with these sweet mice is my entry in the House Mouse Friends Challenge. This week challenge is Multiple Images, I used several House-Mouse designs, What?, Dragonfly-ing and Mudpie Reaches. The papers used were "The Pocket Full of Posies Stack" by DCWV and "Storybox Candy Shoppe" by CM. This is my first time entering House Mouse Friends Challenge, surprising since I like House-Mouse Designs so much.
Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend, we are surpose to have a warm spring weekend with NO rain. Thank you for stopping by and please leave me a comment, I like to hear from you.

Feeling Under the Weather

As I had mentioned in an earlier post I was entering several challenges this week. By entering challenges it pushes me to make cards by a certain date. This card I made for Sketch Saturday, this week sketch challenge is sponsered by Clare Chanter, who owns Thread-Bare. The wonderful goodies for this week challenge winner is beautiful Papermania stamp and stunning Dovecraft charm brads!!

Here is another of those wonderful House-Mouse Stamps, that I just love. This is "Chewable Asprin" , it is always nice to have a great friend like this when we are sick. As usual I colored with Prisma Color and OSM. The BG papers are "The Spring Stack" from DCWV and "Storybox Cottage" from CM.

Thank you for dropping by and pleases leave me a comment of what you think of this card. Thank you and have a great day.

This week is sure flying by again, busy, busy bee. I have been working on my challenge cards this week I am going to enter several challenges. As you can see this one is for Christmas card Challenge, check this blog "Christmas Stamping All Year Long".

Scrappy Frog Challenge #2

Hope everybody had a Happy Easter Day and a wonderful weekend. I am very excited about the challenge over at Scrappy Frog Challenge Blog #2 deadline is April 22nd. The challenge is an inspiration challenge, being inspired by a new gadget from Making Memories, the Slice, I do not have this gadget yet. So as I stared at the picture of the slice hum... what would inspire me the most...the soft colors, the shape, I was inspired by both the color and different shapes on the slice. So I went to work on it, the BG paper is from DCWV "The Green Stack" 70% recycled paper, this paper has the colors of the slice. The bear stamp is from House-Mouse, Gruffies "All Warm & Furry" I just received him last week in the mail, the butterfly is from SU "Bugs and Slugs". I colored both images with Prisma colors and OMS. Above the tea pot spout I embossed to make an effect of steam. The slice has several shapes that inspired me, I used the corner rounder by CM, also used Fiskars corner Victorian, I did not slide paper all the way in the cutter to get this shape on the brownish paper. The edge was also cut with a Fiskars edger, the gems on the corners were Self Stick Gems by Darico. I had alot of fun making this card, thank you for dropping in to check it out. Have a great day!!!

Happy Easter

Hope you all are ready for Easter...I have finally finished all my Easter Cards. I would like to wish everybody a very Blessed Easter. Thank you for taking the time to check me out. Thank you Marsha for encouraging me to do a blog and to make more cards.

I have had this sweet House-Mouse for a while I thought she would make a nice card. This is Amanda in "Fish Bowl". I colored this cute mouse and her friend with Prisma Colors and OMS. The paper I used for the yellow BG is K & Company "Brenda Walton Small Wonders Girl" and the paper for the red BG is from DCWV "The Spring Stack". I used my Craft Robo to cut out the slider with Happy Easter. The CR is really a fascinating tool, you can create what every you want to with the program that comes with it. There is no limit on what you can design on your own computer. Sorry do not mean to sound like a commercial but, the CR is a great tool for any paper crafter. I also used the cuttlebug and embossed with the swiss dot folder.

Spring Card

The weather we were having here in Northeastern North Carolina just got me in the mood for spring. Thought she would make a wonderful Spring Card, just so peaceful.

The flower and butterfly are from The Angel Company - Hoppy Everything. The girl is from Sarah Kay called “Time for Apple Pie”, well I kinda of changed her basket full of apples to a basket of eggs. I used K& Company Designer Mat Pad "Small Wonder Girl" for the background paper. The corner was cut with the cuttlebug. Hope everybody is getting spring fever, and the weather in your area is improving. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.

Dinosaurs Easter

Let me know what you think of this dinosaurs card. My newphew is 3 years old and loves Dinosaurs, so I just had to do a Dinosaurs Easter card. Those are dinosaurs eggs, how cool. I even got him dinosaurs for his Easter basket.

Happy Birthday

Hope everybody is having a wonderful weekend. The weather here in Northeastern NC is just beautiful, the rain and wind has stopped here for now. The sun is shinning bright and all the birds are busy at the feeders, they inspired this card. This card was stamped with stampin up "Spring Song" and I used Nestabilities and Cuttlebug for the die cuts. I colored with EK Success Chalks and SU blender pen. I just had to add the flower to give this card some dimension and bright colors. Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping in and visiting.
