Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Tom and Tilly





May  Challenge Mid Way Inspiration


Wedding, Anniversary and And All Th
ings Love








I made this card for my parents. They have been married 67 years!  Sometimes I just like to tell them how much I love them - they love the cards I make for them.

The stamp I used is named Tom and Tilly (40-098). Got to love a wonderful Mo image!
 I colored with my copics and kept the card very simple-I think this image says it all...the sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

Happy Mother's Day



Happy Mothers Day to all my Crafty Friends!






Mom Wreath Card-designed by Lori Whitlock




Just had to pop in real quick to show you this pretty card I made for the  Mothers in my life.  I used a pretty file from the Silhouette Store designed by Lori Whitlock.  I made the card base in two different colors...white/black and pink/white.  What is your favorite?  Unfortunately the pics of the pink card were blurry except for the close up one at the bottom of this post. I did make it a wee bit different (to cover up a boo boo-the mother of invention right?  The pink card I cut just the front panel and added it to the front of the white card base.  The white and black one is a complete base and design(does the make sense?)













I hope you all enjoy your day!

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Summertime




Mid Way Reminder
#240

SUMMERTIME 












Summertime...I would love to be at a warm beach drinking a fun little froo-froo umbrella drink-wouldn't you?  Well let's go!

I created a little summer scene with an older stamp named Lemon Lips  and a few summer elements cut with my Silhouette.  I cut the oval window with a Lawn Fawn oval die. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Chit Chat set and the paper is from MME.

I am unsure if this stamp has been reissued by Stampendous -they do rename them when they re-release them-so you might check it out on their site.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge for May- Purr-fectly Sweet






May  Challenge


Wedding, Anniversary and And All Things Love






My card today is totally inspired by it's wrapping! I am using
and on the back stamp insert the sample shows wonderful green rolling hills and a heart tree. Well I drew in the green hills and added the companion sentiment to finish off my card.  I stamped the image twice and  and cut out I U  and added it on with pop dots. Both base panels were cut with Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles.




Well-- let me show you what happens when you are crafting in the wee hours ... I am not telling what I said when I realized what I did! ...It was not pretty! Ha!

Sundae Easel Card-My Scrap Chick











Happy Birthday to you....Happy Birthday to you!

Isn't this fun??? I wish I had a whole stash of these ready to give...just so cute, right down to the last spoonful.

Everything was cut with my Silhouette and assembled in just a few minutes. For the life of me I can not remember who makes the sentiment...I made this several weeks ago and my memory does not last that long!~





Folds flat for mailing!


I do hope you have enjoyed my projects today.

House Mouse and Friends Summertime #240





     




#240

SUMMERTIME 




Welcome to our Summertime Challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #240.

I think right now it is wishful thinking that we are on the cusp of summer...sheesh-just last week it snowed on the mountains near me...and in feet-not inches!

I am ready for some warmer weather aren't you!??

For my card today I used  a new cling named Catching Rays.

I used a light bulb shaped card base from the Silhouette Store and made it into a shaker card.  The sentiment is from a Simon Says all occassions sentiment banner set.  I threw in some Taylored Expressions sequins for a little shake!

Another Day In Paradise-My Scrap Chick









This is one of my favorite cards from My Scrap Chick! Bright-Cheerful and flexible enough with 4 different sentiments that you can change it up and make it over and over again!

I made this card for a couple guys-so I limited the pink somewhat :)!If you look below-I will show you a little trick I have used for several years-makes it easy for placing small letters etc.  I believe the idea came from Jennifer McGuire.







Cut out your letters...I always add a box around letters-a habit I picked up from cutting vinyl.
Put a piece of Glad Wrap press and seal over your letters and burnish really well.

Pull up your letters...they will not stick like vinyl so I give each letter a little nudge with my paper piercer. They will stay stuck to the wrap but because they have a fair amount of suction to the mat -they need a little help. A little nudge to dislodge is all it takes.

 Here is what it looks like when pulled from the mat.
                                                            
I lay it down and add some Zig 2 way squeeze and roll glue.
Here you go...all glued up and ready to go!
Gently place over your prepared piece, arrange as needed and then stick down.  You can still nudge the letters a little if needed. Wait just a minute for the glue to stick and then take off the wrap.  MUCH easier than placing each individual letter.  In the file, the letters are set perfectly for cutting and placing on the panel. 



Love the sun in the background...wishing I had my toes in the sand right now!

And of course they fold flat to easily fit in an envelope!

Happy Easter!!




Hope you all had a Happy Easter.  I had a nice dinner with family and am now ready to sit back and rest for a while.  I made several projects over the last few weeks that I just could not find the time to share, so today I am sharing them with you.  


Rice Krispie Easter Cake...the inspiration came from HERE.
This was so fast and easy to make!!!


The Easter Bunny sent me this picture because I forgot to take a picture before popping them in the mail.  Go Ducks!


Another Dollar Tree basket for a a good little friend of mine. The bunnie is from a file named Sweet Bunny Easter Set-from the Silhouette Store, but I can not find the link right now.

Thanks for stopping in...sorry time is short for me these days but I did want to at least share-even if it is the last minute :)
