New Direction

Hey Everyone,

I heard that there will be some changes that will be happening to blogger and I don't want to be left out in the cold.  Hehe!  Apparently, blogger will be removing the following and post button.  WTH!
That totally scare the pants off of me. :)
So, then I heard about joining a site that will view all the blogs you follow
called bloglovin.  Here is a link.

I thought I would join and get started.  Please start following me there.

I just wanted to share.
Happy Good Friday, Everyone!!

Easter Cards 2013

Hi my bloggy friends, 
Today, I'm here to share a card I made for family and friends for Easter this year. 
I can't believe that Easter is this weekend.  It was just St. Patties day.  Sheesh!!
Plus, My son's spring vacation is almost over and my daughter's will start next week.  
Go figure!  

Here is my card:

The bunnies are felt stickers I got at my Michaels.  I thought they were so cute and already made. LOL!!
They were on sale and it had chicks and leaping bunnies too in the package.  I couldn't pass it up.
But, I really like these ones best. 

I backed them with blue and pink cardstock from my stash.  Add a paper doily from my local dollar store.  Cut out pink and blue paper from my Spellbinders dies "Fancy Tags".  Added some pearls and silver flat backs to my card and called it a day.  I really love that doily. 

So, here is my Easter Cards for this year.  I hope my family and friends like them. 

Thanks for stopping by today. 

Have a Great Thursday!!

WW "Think Spring/Easter

Hi Everyone, Happy Wednesday!!

I'm here today to share a card I made for Whimsical Designs.
This week we had to Think Spring/Easter.
  I'm so ready for Spring...I tell ya!!  This winter has been long and I'm tired of it.  Bring on the SUN!  We (I meant I) have been sick too many times this winter and I can't wait for the warmth of the SUN!!  

This challenge we had to make sure it had Pink and Yellow.  Also, we were also asked to use some SVG/JPG files from Design on Cloud 9.

In which, they are our Wonderful Sponsor this week.
They are offering a $20 Dollar Gift Certificate to their site.

Unfortunately, I don't own a machine that will cut SVG files.  I know... I'm so behind the times. Call me old fashion.  But you know what, I wish I did after making this.  LOL!!
I printed out the Birdhouse and Birdhouse 2.  I also printed out the Lovebirds.  
I then re-sized them on my computer, cut them out and then mounted them on different colored cardstock and fussy cut them out.
Whew... :-)

Here is my card:
This is so adorable.

I just love this card.  I can't wait for spring.  Oh, I already said that already.  I'm so over winter - can you tell!

I used some Kraft cardstock (from Michaels) as my base.  As I said above, I have printed, cut, mounted, and popped dotted the birdhouses, birds and couple clouds.  I used my Fiskars Small cloud punch with white cardstock.  Added some pastel color thin ribbon from my stash to the one birdhouse and at the top.  Stamped a sentiment from Whimsical Designs set called Whimsical Fun - Vol. 1
It's a simple but super cute card and I love it. 

Thanks Design for Cloud 9 for the images!!  
Thanks everyone for stopping by today.  Have a fabulous day!

Super Hero

Happy Monday, Everyone!!
I hope everyone enjoyed our Blog Hop this past weekend.  I was Amazed with all those layouts.
I hope you all had a great time hopping with us.

Today, I'm here to share a birthday card that I made for my Son's classmates. 
I heard that he liked Superheroes and what 5 year old boy doesn't.  So, I made a super cute Superhero card for his birthday.

Here is my card:

I used a stamp set I got from my local Tuesday Morning.  I paper pieced the super hero's outfit with blue and red cardstock.  I colored the image with my copics.  I stamped the background with all the fun words in the set like POW!, WHAM! and BLAM!  I also stamped the yellow stars and fussy cut them out.  
I wrapped some red twine.  I think it turned out Super don't you? 

I totally love this set.  There is a little girl I can't wait to create with.  My son was pretty impressed with this card too.  He helped me with the stamping. :)  

Thanks everyone for stopping by today.  Have a Great Monday and a Wonderful week.

I had to make a birthday card for my Father-in Law so I dug out one of my images I got from a swap I did over on Facebook. I think this image is Cafe Ian - not totally sure. I colored him with my copics (if you want to know the colors I used, please leave me a comment saying so) I will post it for you.
I used paper from Colobok that I got from my local Tuesday Morning. I really need to use my paper up. I wanted some distress blue paper and this pack was perfect. The name of that pack is called Rustic Earth Tones which went perfectly. The "Live it UP" diecut is also from that pack. Punched out some scallop circles from with Stampin UP punches. Added a button from my stash.
I also used two (2) sentiments from Whimsical Designs Stamp set called "Everyday Sentiments". One on the cover and one for the inside.

I hope you all like it.
