Celebrate!


Here's my second card and post for the day with a fun birthday card that could be for either a guy or girl...


My image is Doodle Pantry's Carousel Horse 6 that is cut out with Spellbinders Celebrations Squares and framed with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares.  I tied a piece of Offray ribbon and the white circles are Doodlebug Designs white Sprinkles.


Doodle Pantry is sponsoring 613 Avenue Create's challenge this week, so be sure to visit them and play along!

Can it really already be the 1st of May???  Wow!  I must be getting old because time seems to be flying by!


Isn't this birdie cute??!?  I hope time flies for the recipient of this card and that this birdie cheers him up as he heals!  This is for a young boy in our church who broke his leg.  Poor little guy!  His break required surgery and a pin.  :(  

I used the color image from Boo-boo Birdie & Ants.  He was cut out with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B then I ran my Cutter Bee Bug around the edges to make a pierced border.  The sentiment is cut out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.  My ribbon is AC.  The chipboard button is DCWV.  The plaid paper is a scrap that I distressed on my Distrezz It All.  [I love that little machine!!!]

Christmas in the heart - TMS #349



Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I've got a Christmas card this week...


My card is actually the second one I created for this week's challenge.  The first one was great in my mind, but in reality... it FAILED!  So it got torn apart.  Maybe it didn't work because all I could think about was the fact that I had just finished off my bag of Chicken Bone Bites. :(  My parents brought them to me and I tried to make them last as long as possible, but now they are all gone.  If you haven't been to the Maritimes, you may not even know what I'm talking about.  They are a cinnamon candy filled with chocolate!!!!!  Sooooooo good!!  Ganong is the original and the best!  See?

That had nothing to do with my card, but I really am sad they're gone and just wanted to whine a little.  Now back to reality...

The DP all had silver through it... it's very pretty IRL!!

This week our very own Melissa is sponsoring with another embellishment pouch from Freckled Fawn, so you want to play along for your chance to win that!!

My second post of the day is a sympathy card.  Sadly, I've needed several of these recently.

Calla Lilies from Lily Collection.  I absolutely LOVE calla lilies!!!  The sentiment is from Sweet Sympathy Sentiments.   My DP is Prima Epiphany.  I used Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Ribbon Banners.  Both cuts are inked with TH tea dye.  A bit of ribbon from my scrap box and brown adhesive pearls finished it off.

Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Stamp Art Papel's challenge with the theme of "anything goes."  It's been so crazy lately that I didn't get my card done soon enough to make it in the DP post on the blog. :(

Seek the Lord...


It's April, right?  Yep, that's what the calendar says.  If you visit my blog much at all, you know that I LOVE snow and that I was not happy this winter because we got almost none! :'( 
Now that it's April, we finally got some snow!  I think we got more this weekend than we had all winter long!  Half of it is melted already, but it sure was nice while it lasted!  See?


But since it's spring, I'll move on...


I love to make note cards with a Scripture sentiment.  They are so versatile and can be used as a simple note card, an an "I'm praying for you" card, or maybe a sympathy card.   Here is one I just made...


My DP is MME Indie Chic, and the back piece is embossed with Darice Cherry Blossom EF.  My sentiment is free word art from Word Art Wednesday a couple of weeks ago.   The pink frame is cut with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles.  My sparkly, swirly brads are Recollections.

Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #224-225 - anything goes/family friendly
Scrapy Land #39 - anything goes/must use die brand Scrapy Land sells (Spellbinders)
Creative Card Crew #110 - use a die

Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!!
