Happy Easter!

Here comes Peter Cottontail...
When I first saw this box card pattern 2 months ago, I knew immediately that it would be just the thing for Easter cards. The LollyDoodle paper pack from Close To My Heart screamed spring to me. The little eggs are actually a balloon mini stamp, I just cut off the tie and string. I will admit making 8 did take me some time, but I'm not the fastest worker and the results were worth it!

Happy Easter!

APRIL Pineapple Paper Artist Blog Hop

Hello All and welcome back to another wonderful blog hop brought to you by the Pineapple Paper Artists! We're a fun group of ladies who share laughs and a love for paper crafting. You may be coming here from Amy's Pineapple Paper Artist blog or starting out here. Either way, enjoy taking in the talents and ideas of the group.

I've created several cards for you. The paper is CTMH's Lollydoodle. A handful of scraps were in front of me and I wanted to see what I could come up with. The stamps are CTMH minis, priced at only $2.95. A little shimmer tape, bling and watercolor pencils, pulled them all together.

Please continue on to Cheryl's Creations With Style and enjoy the artistry of my fellow Close To My Heart consultants.

Happy Halloween!

If you're like me, you still have candy in the house, so the way I see it, I can still say Happy Halloween. Besides, if it's still Halloween, then maybe time will slow down a little. Haha, I'm not even fooling myself. I am well aware that in a blink of an eye, it'll be Christmas. Regardless, I would like to share with you the Halloween card I sent out to family and a couple friends. I figured that if I spent the time to put so many steps into creating the card front, I needed to make the inside more than basic. I liked the result.

Challenge Accepted

I so enjoy the women I'm with at CTMH Team Meetings held by my second upline. We played abit with the October Stamp of the Month - Scandinavian Wishes. I will admit, this stamp set wasn't "my cup of tea." Amazing how opinions change when you give something a try. This simple little gift tag was made by stamping the sentiment and and the border stamp as stripes on an ornament shape cut from a CTMH Cricut cartridge. A little foam tape to adhere it to kraft paper, a little baker's twine, and call it done. Making many would be quick and easy to do, while adding a special touch to gift-giving.

Cards, Cards, And More Cards!

I have plenty of scrapbook layouts to do, however, I seem to much prefer doing cards. Of course, I swore I never would do either because of all the work that goes into it. Well, here I am a card maker and a scrapbooker for about eight years now. I sure have a lot of "stuff", but what's even better is that I have some wonderful friendships because of my addiction, er... hobby. So before I get back to school, I'm creating like crazy. Some of these are originals and some, well, not so much.

First, wedding cards my daughter needs...
-the "MR and MRS" was cut from the invitation
- the botanical pressed background paper was from the invite
 - these both used up some scraps

 -these I played around with some watercolor crayons

 - this one was so much fun to color in

and for my father-in-law who got a hole-in-one last week...

and my first time playing with washi tape -

and the inspiration for the above card -
