Thinking of You!

Happy Monday! Today, I am glad I'm off one more day before going back to work... Last week went by pretty fast because I worked all 5 days...I wont be doing that anytime soon again....This is a card that came together less than an hour thanks to this week's sketch from Mojo Monday #390. Thank you! Lots of pink today! I have several pre-made flowers in pink because last year I had planned to make a shabby chic mini album in pink and well....never did get to it...so they are perfect colors to match with this paper from K &Company. 


The circle diecut is from spellbinders, called Splendid Circles. I used my computer for the circle sentiment in brown ink and diecut it out with circles. I wanted to show more of the beautiful paper in the background. The flourishes are from Cheery Lynn Designs, called Tiny Fanciful Flourish left & right, and Tropical Flourish. 


The sentiment reads "thinking of you" I also love these crochet flowers with tiny pearls in the center. 


The other roses and sunflower in pink are from recollections. 


I added pop dots behind the circle and a few pearls along the top upper left edge.
 Couldn't help myself, but hey! No ribbon! lol


Here is the sketch, you can keep it simple or add more to it! Totally up to you! 
Thanks again Mojo Monday!


Thanks for stopping by...have a great week!

A Shabby Chic Easter

Hello! Happy Saturday! 
I sure am glad it is the weekend! It has been a rough week for me...but I'm glad it is the weekend where I can rest and create. Creating new cards has been a wonderful release of stress for me lately. So today I wanted to make a shabby chic Easter card. I used several diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs, Our Daily Bread and one from Spellbinders. I had a vision of creams, whites with a tiny splash of light yellow/tan. This is my ending result. I was planning to add a title to the front but then I thought it looked good without it too. :)


I started off with 3 stamped eggs and then it didn't looked balanced? So I added 2 more eggs. lol


Tiny little pearls were added to the center diecut egg from cheery lynn. I had to add another triple looped double bow again. I'm addicted to them....lol


The swag on top is 2 different diecuts added together and cut to 3 flags from Our Daily Bread. Lots of pearls throughout with pre-made flowers made this card complete. 


I added a pom pom to the bunny tail and another google eye. 
Here you can see the dimension a bit better.


Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great day!

Green Greetings!

Hello everyone! 
Happy Belated St Patrick's Day! 
I sure wanted to get this card up late last night since I made it quickly yesterday, but it didn't happen....so sorry! I wanted to use all green and to use the Viva La Verve Sketch #2 this month. I love all their sketches from Mojo Monday and this week I took a quick peek at the sketches from Viva La Verve and knew I had to make this one for sure.  


I have had this "Birthday Greetings" stamp for a long time and finally....used it! Love the swirls! 


A closer view...I used the last of my matching green pearls and needed one extra one? So I used a bit of bling... :) I also used black bling and a bit of my Cheey Lynn diecuts for a bit more swirls! 


Here is the wonderful sketch...I sure be watching for so many more! Thx


Have a great day!

Celebrate Easter!

Happy Sunday! 
Can you believe in just a few more weeks it will be Easter? I'm hoping to have the family together this holiday to celebrate together. We are planning to have some yummy food and of course the annual egg hunt! Yes I know my children are adults but I cant help myself....lol So here is a card that I made this morning to celebrate the upcoming holiday. 
It is also for this week's  Cheery Lynn Challenges #176- Celebrate


The eggs were first layered flat, then a thinner pop dot, and then a larger pop dot on top. I added stickles in white pearl on the eggs and some pearl bling throughout. It was one piece and I simply cut it up into smaller pieces. 


In the inside there are tiny flourishes with some simple eggs.
There is layering of a diecut flower with two different colors behind the triple looped, double bow in cream . The card is really more pastel in color, but my camera is having issues today? You ever have that happen? 


Here you can see the dimension of the card. I printed up the sentiment on the computer and just added a tail to one end. 


Cheery Lynn Diecuts Used:

DL 210 Lace Egg Four
B387 Tiny Fanciful Flourish Left & Right
B241 Rose Leaf Strip
DL102 French Pastry
SF-2 Stacker Flowers #2

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Be sure to stop by tomorrow for some "eggciting" news!

Peeps!

Hello Peeps! 
I wanted to share with you this new card that I was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday #388. When I first started to create this card I was thinking about adding a star like it is on the sketch. However, after I made the circles it started to take a twist and I wanted to use my Cheery Lynn chicks and the tall grass from Our Daily Bread. Tada! This is the ending result! I'm loving the chicks and the yellow polka dot ribbon to go with my theme. 


This card is made of all diecuts, with some pearls and flowers...it took about an hour. 


I wasn't sure what I was going to place as the sentiment on the card. I just knew I didn't want it to say Happy Easter....so I found this cute quote online and printed it up on the computer. 


Closer view of the chicks with google eyes! 


Quick inside view. 
If you don't have these adorable chicks yet, I would say they are a sure must have for your spring collection! 


Here is the fab sketch! Thx! 


Hope you have a great day!!!

Double Folded Bunny Card

Happy Hump Day!

Today, Im sharing a new Easter card. It is my first Double Folded Card. I totally Love how easy it is to make. I was really surprised! I wanted to make another Easter card and send it out soon to one of my family members. I also wanted it to be creams and chocolate! Yummy! 


I was only going to make one chocolate bunny...but then I thought a cream/white chocolate would be good too! The egg stamp and diecut are from Our Daily Bread and the cute bunnies are from Cheery Lynn Designs. I added google eyes. The sentiment is from a clearence section a bought years ago in a pack of 3 sentiments for .50....so awesome! 


Here is an open view....planning to add my personal sentiment later... i added lots of pearls to the tops. I also added more eggs and one more chocolate bunny inside. One chocolate ribbon bow to the top :)


A back view....More pearls....


Thx for looking!
