Flowery Thanks!

Hi everyone!! I hope that you're having a great weekend so far. Are you doing anything fun? My husband and I had some family photos taken this morning at a park, enjoyed some ice cream and went shopping! I would say that it was a great day overall! :)

I am back again with another card for the current 7 or less Challenge!

 The optional theme for this challenge is to create a thank you card using 7 or less products. Here is the card that I created:

This card includes white card stock for the base, patterned paper for the background, a tag sticker, some alphabet stickers, and twine! That makes 5 products (assuming that the alphabet stickers only count as one product!) These products are all from Lawn Fawn's "Pink Lemonade" collection kit.

There are still quite a few days left in this challenge, so don't forget to play along!

I hope that you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by! :)

You will have a happy birthday!

 Hello! I hope that the weather is starting to feel like spring where you are! Today it was in the 70s and it was wonderful! I wanted to stay outside all day! :)

I have a birthday card that I made recently that I wanted to share.

 When you pull on the fortunes, this is what they say:

I was surprised at how easy it was to make a moving card! I made a small slit behind the cookies and slid the fortunes behind the patterned paper. I added a little piece of extra paper to the end so that you can't pull the fortunes out the whole way. These images are all from Lawn Fawn's "Good Fortune" stamp and die set, and the patterned paper is from October Afternoon's "9 to 5" collection.

Have you ever made a moving or sliding card? Thanks for stopping by! :)

Cheer Up!

Good morning! I am back again to share another card with you! This card is for the current CASology Challenge!

 The CASology challenges are one of my favorites, but I never have enough time to play along. So, I am very glad that I was able to get a chance to make a card for this week's challenge. Here is the card that I created:

Yep, I was inspired by the Pixar movie "Up." It is such a sweet movie! I thought that the bright colors would make a perfect "cheer up" card! The house, cheer, and letters are from Lawn Fawn's "Home Sweet Home," "Happily Ever After," and "Quinn's ABCs" stamp sets, respectively. The balloons are from Paper Smooches "Hullabaloo" stamp set. To create the blue background, I masked off the edges of the card, and used a pearlized accent spray. I really like how the background turned out!

Well, thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)

Many Thanks

Hi everyone! I am so happy today because spring is soo close!! It was gorgeous outside today! It was still a little bit chilly, but it was so sunny and the birds were singing! The temperature is suppose to be nice this week, so I can't wait! :)

I have a card to share with you today for the current 10 Minute Craft Dash! The challenge is to create a card based on these three colors:

 Here is the card that I created based on the color challenge:

This card took 8 minutes and 4 seconds to create. This card features patterned paper from Pebble's "Sunnyside" collection and October Afternoons' "9 to 5" collection. There are some enamel dots from My Mind's Eye as well as white ribbon. The banner and sentiment are both from Lawn Fawn's "Home Sweet Home" stamp set. If you include the black ink that was used for the sentiment, then there were six different products used for this card. That means that I am also entering this card into Marie's 7 or Less Challenge!

Both of these challenges are a lot of fun to play along with, so don't forget to give it a try! It makes it challenging to keep track of the time and how many products you are using on your card!

Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend? I hope that the weather is starting to warm up in your area and that you have a nice weekend! Thanks for stopping by! :)
