hosted by mousey teamie Karin and the theme is:


Who doesn't love a nice sunny spring day? Oh my, they can't be that far away!

Today I am using a sweet stamp named Blowing Bubbles--keeping it simple by cutting it out with a lawn fawn stitched rectangle die, sunny lawn fawn paper and finishing it off with a pretty SU! ribbon. Wow, it has been a long time since I have tied a bow in is so pretty! The sentiment is from a Simon Says Tilted Saying Banner clear set.

Bunny Rabbit Easel Card-My Scrap Chick

I used Kraft cardstock from Michael's for my bunnies...adding a little brown chalk around the edges and then dressing them in their Easter finery.  The sentiment is from Inky Antics Carrot Bunny clear set.

I love this Bunny Rabbit Easel Card!!!  Aren't they spiffy all dressed up for Easter?

It easily folds flat for mailing!

I was inspired to make this bunny card in "chocolate brown" due to my love of Russell Stover Chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies. I soooo love them.  I went to the store the other day to buy some, but my local store did not have any! Imagine that!

Oh my...I will be on the hunt for them at the few other stores my small town has.  Probably a good thing I did not find them, although I just ate my last stash of chocolate covered marshmallow Santa's and need to hide some more in my goodie stash drawer!  Now you know my deep dark(chocolate) secret!   

I do hope you have enjoyed my projects today.

Mid Way Inspiration

Bright and Cheerful Colors

CARD  #1

The images on this card are from one slap stick cling stamp. (see link below). Images were cut out with my Scan n Cut2 and the card base was cut with my Silhouette. 

             CARD #2

This card has images from three different stamps...the mouse from one stamp set, the bird from another and the hedgie from a wood stamp.  It was very fun to add them all together for a cute little scene.

Card Details:

I used several stamp sets for these cards.  The first card uses Prize Cupcake and a bird from joy to the world  as well as a cute little mousie from jolly friends. You can find the links below. The second card uses a slapstick cling  named furry flight.
The card base is a fun 3D cut file designed by Lori Whitlock-perfect for adding some little Penny Black critters to complete the scene! The sentiments are cut with my Silhouette.

Life is Better in Flip Flops

Life is Better in Flip Flops!


I was inspired to make these flip flop cards by this post on Thistlewood Farms written by blog author  Kari Anne-

I have read it several times...she is such a wonderful writer and blogger!  She is quite the character and never ceases to make me smile.

For today's cards I am using some pretty Bella Blvd flowered paper (baby girl)...Yep, some paper I have been hoarding because it is so dang cute...I decided to let it rip and just use it...woo hoo-a big step for this paper addict! I used some Michaels solid cardstock for the base and lined the inside of the  card with some white Georgia Pacific 110lb cardstock. The file does not show an inside lining, but I usually like to finish off my cards with a liner piece to write my message on. 

The sentiment is one of two included with the cut file- they are print and cut files and easy to use on your card. I love that you can ungroup the words and color them any color you desire.  If you look closely you can see I made some with Pink, Purple and Orange words.  I am not sure that shows in my pictures. 

To make an envelope that was a perfect fit for my odd sized flip flop card I layered the flip flop piecing(In Silhouette software you would right click flip flop piece and choose Bring to Front)- and place inside the envelope (see below). I stretched the A2 envelope so the rectangle inside the dotted lines was 3.75 x 7 inches-a perfect fit for the Flip Flop!  I did remove the dashed score lines and just scored the lines manually instead. I thought that would work better for mailing.  I added 1/8 inch score tape around the edges that needed to stick shut-you can see that in the pictures below.

A2 Envelopes

Remember this:

There is only one you.
And that you is amazing.

Don't forget to tell your story!

I do hope you have enjoyed my projects today.

Camouflage Baby Onesie and Onesie Boy Box-My Scrap Chick

Camo Baby!!!

 I have a new grand nephew due in April...and his Papa is very much in to Camouflage style clothes.  I thought this would be perfect to welcome the newest member of our family. I made this  cute little Onesie Simple Easel card with a little touch of camouflage paper!  I added new baby's name (Easton) to the front and made the Welcome sentiment on the computer.  And you know there is pink camo paper out there too!?!

Then I made this cute little Onsie Gift Box Boy to keep new little baby boy keepsakes in. It has a touch of stitching and the inside is lined in camo too.

I made this little 4x6 box full of jelly beans to compliment my Rabbits of the Round Table stamp. This is an older stamp and I am unsure if it has been reissued by Stampendous or not. I certainly hope so as it is a real cutie! The  Happy Easter sentiment is from Great Impressions. 

Do you see the cute little bunny tails?

I had to borrow my Sweetie's jelly beans for these pictures-and then give them back LOL!  He is so happy that it is Brach's jelly bean season!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Bright and Cheerful

March Challenge

Bright and Cheerful Colors

This card was inspired by true friendship! A former coworker and dear friend stopped in to the office the other day...bearing dozens of lovely tulips to brighten our office! She was dressed in a pretty turquoise outfit that her daughter had brought back to her from India. We enjoyed a nice lunch and lots of laughs as we caught up on all the happenings over the last year. Gosh I miss her!

I thought this image was just perfect to stamp and color a sweet thank you card for her.  I chose to keep this card simple..I colored with copics and added it to a bright card base. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with a little scalloped Sizzix die. You can't tell by this picture, but the vases also have silver Wink of Stella on them.
