Monday, Monday

Good Morning. It's Paper Pretties Monday and I wanted to share with you the new image and new challenge going on.

This week we want to see shaped cards. Anything shape but square or rectangle. I had to pull out my Cricut for this one. I don't use that often enough.

The image is called Buttercup and is perfect for Mother's Day or just a acard for a friend.

Be sure to stop at the blog and see what the other DT ladies have made and enter your shaped project.

Take care.

Use those scraps and Recycle

This week at the Hambo Hoedown we were to reduce, reuse and recycle. So I dug into my scrap pile, which constantly grows; and pulled out some scraps. "Goat" was the just the image to help us recycle.

I have the idea to make book markers for all my daughter's classmates for their summer reading. (So expect to see more markers coming in the next few weeks). School is almost over for the year, so I really need to get busy.

I used all scraps for my project and the ribbon is recycled from a package I received (that's why it's so small).

Take care.

Rain or Shine

I saw these cute little rain boots as a giveaway at DZ Doodles and I knew they would make the perfect card. Don't ask me about the color combination. I started coloring and this is what came out, but I love it! It's bright and still girly.

Take care.

Flowers, flowers everywhere!

Good Morning. It's allergy season here in FL. The flowers are up, the trees have budded and I am a sneezing mess! I think I like my flowers on paper. LOL.

Today I share a birthday card with Big Flower from Sweet Stamping Treats. I printed the flower 3 times in different sizes so I could layer them together.

All digis are half off through the end of the month at Sweet Stamping Treats. So you have a few more days to stock up.

Take care.

Good Morning.
I am having fun playing with images I have had for so long. But I have got to get a job quick because being home is something I could get used to. LOL!

This morning I bring you a card with a sweet Meljens Design image and sentiment. I love cats and this was adorable.

I tried something new on this card. I keep seeing gathered ribbon in blogland, so I tried it to. I love the end result. That ruffled edge on the side is ribbon!

Take care.

Happy Sunday!

Wow, I never knew you could get so much done when you don't leave the house! And I never knew how much you have to do when you do leave the house every day. LOL! I have been busy, busy, busy!

Today I made a card with a Dustin Pike image. I saw something similar (of course I cant remember where) that inspired me. This didn't turn out at all how I envisioned it.

Back with another project

I know, I'm really late with this one, but I had made an Easter tag with a digi from DrangonsMoore Digital Stamps. This was a freebie that Lyn gave out on her blog and was too cute not to be on a project. Meet Eggly.

Take care.
