HB Flower Pot

I love making Flower Pot cards.  I think they are super cheerful and can be used for a multitude of things (i.e. hidden messages, gift cards, easel cards, etc.)  August is a very busy birthday month for me.  You will be seeing lots and lots and lots of birthday cards.  On my maternal side of the family there are eight (8) birthdays and three (3) of these are for my aunts and one (1) for my mother.  The remaining are cousins.  Well on to the card.

This card qualifies for three challenges:
Easy Craft Project Challenge - use Chocolate Brown
Sentimental Sunday - Anything goes
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything goes - Birthday sentiment

Blessings and Happy Crafting!

Christmas Window Easel

Another fun to create card.  I struggled a bit with the tree until I decided to put the picture window in front of it.  That changed the whole look of the card.  This was inspired by a stamp from Doodlebug Home for the Holidays.  I hand cut the Christmas tree and the picture window, both are my own creations.

This card is entered into two challenges:  CARDZTV  and Tuesday Throwdown.  CARDZTV's challenge was to make a tree and Tuesday Throwdown's challenge was a Christmas in July challenge.  This card applied to both.

Here is my offering:

Happy Thoughts!

Hello all,

Got a late start to the day.  Am just finishing up a card.  Of course I was also attending Digi-Day at SNR Card Universe.  It was a ton of fun.  Come join us on August 28 for the next Digi-Day.  You will have a ton of fun too!

Here is the card I was working on during the Digi-Day.

Had a fun time making this one.  Lots of hand cutting though ... very relaxing.

Red Rose

Hello my friends,

Well, I have been at it again.  This time it was a commissioned card.  Yippee!!!  I really had a great time with this one.  Played around with a new digital stamp from Treehouse Stamps.  I got the Embrace Life digital stamp that had two beautiful roses included.  Ashley got my order right out and I was able to get things rolling quickly this morning.  Here is a pic of my finished card.

I also made a lined envelop.  The liner was made by positioning a smaller version of the rose stamp all-over red cs.  I also made a rose seal for the back of the envelop.

Happy Crafting,

Smile Mosaic

Hello bloggers,

Hope all of you had or are having a terrific Monday.  Busy, busy here in Texas.  I reorganized my paper scraps.  The larger scraps were filed in an old paper carrier and the smaller scraps are still in the paper drawer.  It sure makes things much easier when looking for just the right size element.

I made two of the same card today.  Both are pink, green and white.  The challenge was a mosaic look.  Check out Tuesday Throwndown and Card Patterns.  Here is my take on their challenges.  Here is a pic of CP#72.

I really enjoyed making these cards and they actually went quite fast once I got the measurements figured out.  I think I will do these again.
Happy Crafting,

Just stopping by for a visit ...

While I was posting my latest card creation I had a visitor to my craft table sneak in ... Zach a.k.a. Bubbe.
He and his sisters (Sophie and Lucy) jockey for room on the craft table while I am there.  They are quickly moved to a chair which is strategically placed beside me while crafting.  With all the sharp tools and many pointy objects on the table I worry about them getting hurt while jumping up on the table or down from the file cabinet to the left of the table (off picture).  Do you see the mat under Bubbe?  That's my Creative Memories cutting mat.  I know what he is thinking, "Mom, did you think I would curl up on a bare table?" 

I think I will let him 'sleep' there for a while.  I have some calls to make and dust to stir. 

Happy crafting!

Our Founding Fathers

Missing You

Hello again.  I have been behind getting all of my cards posted and am trying to get them finished up today.  Hopefully I will be successful.

I found the black-eyed susan die cuts in my stash and had to make a card with them.  They look so summery.  As I mentioned in a previous post I love flowers.  I lean more toward English Country Gardens.  You know the ones with lots of different flowers all growing in am unplanned kind of way.  I also like very planned rose gardens.  I have neither.  I can say that I have a delightful Iris bunch in the pond and some very tall and glorious cannas at the back fence.  Otherwise it is a bit too shady for and flowers in my yard.  Well, without further ado here is my Missing You card full of sunshine!
