Cute, right? Those acorns are so neat and easy to cut...like butter! They even come with various faces and sentiments. I also used the Sentiment Flags, also from Lil' Inker, to add the sentiment. Perfect!
That's it for today. Tomorrow is World Card Making Day...are you entered in the blog hop yet?!?!
Hey there! Ava's school is having a silent auction tomorrow and we are sending in a Hollister gift card so the kids can try to bid on it with their money. Well, it's money they ear for being great students, so not actual currency that you can spend outside of school...lol. Hollister is Ava's favorite store, so I imagine I may see this card again when she bids on it herself! :)
I decided to make a little holder for the gift card using this week's Color Throwdown colors:
I used my seed packet die again and came up with a really simple little design since I'm pretty sure it's going to go into the garbage. Ha!
Thanks for stopping in! Have a great rest of the day.
Hi there! Hope you're having a good week. Mine is so far, so good. I have a card today for this week's Friday Mashup. I haven't had a chance to play the last couple of weeks, so I wanted to make sure to play along this week. Here is the challenge:
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
Make a project using the "Square Sketch above ".
Or Make a Project that has a "Masculine" theme.
Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Square Project using the Sketch, with a Masculine theme".
I decided to stay true to the sketch and the theme and create an all purpose guy card. Here ya go:
I pulled out my Papertrey and Verve die and had a blast creating this card. I love the little "splatters" on there. Fun!
Thanks for stopping by. If you get a chance, play along with the Friday Mashup!
Hey there. Thanks for dropping in. Oh, for those of you that asked - Contagion was okay. I'd give it a B-. It was great for a while and then it felt like they HAD to wrap it up and left too many unanswered questions for my taste. The cast was great, though, and it really did make me think a bit on how many germs and things there are out there and how susceptible we all really are...yeesh!
What a neat picture. I was inspired by the colors and that little banner at the top. It made me think of my grandmother. All of the little things in the photo remind me of things that would be in her home. The thread and buttons for sewing, the little "hanky" in her purse, the picnic pattern on a table in the backyard...the whole thing just screamed her to me. She was such a warm and giving person, and so I decided to make a card that included a gift. Here it is:
I used a selection of papers on this card. A little Cosmo Cricket "Circa 1934"and "Odds & Ends", both of which I really like. I thought the colors in those papers were perfect for the challenge.
I also, for the first time, used my Papertrey Seed Packet Die. I figure I can throw a gift card in here and voila - instant gift! I really like the way it turned out and love how easy it is to put together. I added a sentiment from the Verve "Hope Blooms" set, a flower, and a little bling and I was done.
Well, that's it for me. Have a great day and thanks, again, for stopping in! Laters!
Hey and welcome to this month's Papertrey Blog Hop!
Here is this month's inspiration photo:
I loved the colors and lines, so I went with the obvious inspiration and came up with this:
This was the first time I ever used these die...and I really liked them. They make great flowers, for sure. This was a super simple card, but I love the colors on the patterned paper and the little glittery button,too! Well, thanks for stopping in...see you on the hop!
Hey there! Saturday and i am feeling almost 100%! I managed to stamp last night and it didn't bother me at all, so yay!
The first card I wanted to make was for this week's Color Throwdown challenge. Here are this week's colors:
I initially thought to make a baby girl card, but once I got started I went in another direction and made a generic "friend" card to send out to a buddy that's been missing from church the last few weeks. :)
Here is the card:
I really liked the paper. It has a great mod feel! Well, that's it from me today. Thanks for stopping by!
Hey guys! No card today. My elbow IS a lot better, but I still haven't been able to make anything. I am hoping that when I get home this everning, it will feel well enought to stamp something! Of course, when i CAN'T stamp is precisely when I have all sorts of ideas in my head TO stamp..lol.
Anyway, I am here today with a special post about an upcoming Blog Hop that I am sure you'll want to be a part of. Most of you know Julie Renae. If you've heard of The Play Date Cafe or CAS-ual Fridays, then you know who she is! She's a super DT coordinator and all around great person.
Hey there. Quick post. I have tennis elbow and got 2 cortisone shots yesterday. Needless to say , they hit a nerve so I was in CRAZY pain today. It's a wee bit better now, but i'm supposed to NOT type or craft (waaaaaa!!!!). I made this card earlier this month for the current SFYTT. Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:
Thanks for stopping in. Hopefully, I can get back to crafting soon...and typing and eating with my right hand..lol.
Whoa, Friday already? Don't get me wrong..I'm glad it's here but, man, it seems like this week flew by! I hope you guys all had a great week. Mine was pretty good, I suppose. Nothing remarkable happened. :)
I have a card today that I made for this week's Colour Q challenge. Here are this week's colors:
Fun colors, right? They put me in the mood to make a little boy birthday card. I seriously have NO birthday cards around. I really must start making cards that are usable. I have plenty of cards that say things like "birds fly cause they have wings" (not a real sentiment) or something like that and nothing that just says "Hey, happy birthday" or "congrats" or even "hey buddy!"...lol. Do you guys find yourself making cards that you don't REALLY use? The madness has GOT to stop...lol. So here is the card I made:
Now to find a boy to send it to and I am all set! Have a great weekend. Go Buckeyes!!!
Hey guys! I'm back today with this week's FYI challenge. I didn't get to participate last time, so I was itching to get back to playing with the rest of the ladies. They have some FABULOUS cards to share, so be sure and hit everyone else's blogs!
Here is our inspiration photo for this week:
Isn't that just gorgeous?? Stephanie picks out THE most beautiful pictures for us to use. This picture made me think of episode of Andy Griffith (one of my favorite shows) where Howard Sprague sees a commercial and decides that he is going to throw caution to the wind and move to a Caribbean island. It doesn't turn out quite like he expected, but the fact that he actually DID it was always cool to me. He at least TRIED it, ya know? I'm not sure there is enough of that these days. ANYWAY...sorry for that ramble..lol. Here is my card:
Hello! Well, this week is just flying by! It's already halfway done..yay!
Today, I have a card for the current CR84FN challenge. Here are the challenge colors:
I decided to make a card unlike my normal cards. No patterned paper and no buttons. Pretty CAS, though, I DID add ribbon and glitter. Hey, Rome wasn't built in a day, ya know? I had to have SOMETHING extra. :)
Here is what I made:
I love the way Smokey Shadow looks with the bright pink and bit of black. The butterfly is actually the same color as the ribbon, but the glitter didn't photograph it the same.
Well, that's it from me. Hope you guys have a great Wednesday!
I love the bouquet in the inspiration picture, but decided to use my new Market Street set called Hippie Chic again. The images are so adorable and I really liked the sentiment (you know how I am about sentiments!) with this. Here is my card:
Is that guitar not the cutest? I really like this set. I have GOT to get more of their stamps. They're really great quality and, quite frankly, I also like the way they smell. :)
Anywho, thanks for stopping in!! Have a great rest of the day!
FINALLY....finally my mojo is back and life has settled down enough to stamp again. My husband is home and reintegration has been...difficult. I guess the older your children are, the harder it is for things to get back to normal. Ugh..
Anyway, I am back and have been stamping all morning! Yay! Today, I have a card for this week's Colour Q! Here are the colors for this week:
Neat colors, huh? Orchid Opulence was always one of my favorite SU colors. I decided to use one of my new Market Street Stamps that arrived a little over a week ago. It's called Comforting Florals and I absolutely adore the image of this vase and flower combo. Here is my card:
I added Crystal Effects to mimic water...in person, it's really cool. Well, I better get back to the family. Thanks for stopping in!!
