Easter is coming

Can you believe that Easter is coming....I always think of the Easter as a time of sacrifice. I often get wrapped up in my own world and forget about the blessings that I have received. This is the season that I try to give thanks for all the wonderful things in my life. I pray that each of you enjoy the season with one another and share in Easter Blessings.

Tuesday Template 02-23-10

Melinda used my favorite color scheme on her sketch. I was tempted to use it for my card. But I choose Catelynne at the last moment, I need to use more blues and greens. I have way too much blue and green cardstock on hand. LOL! My card it made using the Wonder and Joy set. I have not gotten tired of using it just yet.

Happy Spring

Watercolor Plants, and Simple Joys are used to this card. My daer friend Vickie loaned me the idea. I changed it a bit to fit my needs but in the end it is pretty close to her card. I used a Christmas set for the inside sentiments but I think they work great, how about you?

Today's sketch is all mine.....And you know how
that goes. Love it when you create it then hate it
you have to use it. LOL! Well, I have been creating
lots of cards with this set lately. This is actually two
sets since the rose is from the new Serendipity set
cuties, but matches perfectly! I love everything
Mabelle creates. These stamps became a favorite
quit quickly for me.

Ladybug - Sweet Friend

There is something about ladybugs that I can not resist. Even my kids love them. Most people get upset when in the fall they try to come into the house. My kids do not mind them in the house, they even make little house for them. I tell them that they will not stay in the box houses they make. I try to gently explain that they go where they want. It's hard for them to understand after they have lovingly provided the ladies with a full furnished home. :o)

I think my love for them stems from my Mom. See she always grew a garden and would encourage the ladies to stay. I know they eat the aphids which is great for gardeners. But I always thought they were lucky. Mom would grow Strawberries so sweet, and I was sure it was because of the lady bugs.

I can not wait till Spring so I can get some dirt under my nails and try to attract the ladies to dine in my garden.

Wow, I am always surprised by how many birthday cards I make. Every time I turn around I need another one. This is a cute quick one for a young girls birthday. I used the celebrate from the little cupcake set, and the cupcake from cupcake cuties.

Simply Be Mine

This simple be mine card is made with glitter bazzill but it is hard to tell. I love the ribbon which is mostly pinks and browns. The color combination is one of my favorites.

Baby Swap Reject

I have a swap coming up that has a theme is Baby. I started to play around to see what I could come up with and this was one of the rejects. I love the toodle loo paper, marvelous motto, and for all seasons set. I just felt like I could do better, so back to the drawing board. Maybe I could try one of those easel cards???

Color Challenge - Paper Wings CC48


Sherbert - soft yellow

Blossom - rosey pink

Mocha - soft brown

My lighting was giving me trouble but I assure you these colors are better in person. I used the friendship strips and the little cupcake set. Mabelle's sets are always a favorite with me. Hope you like them too.

Tuesday Template 2-9-10

Angie brought us this sketch, and she made circles. ARGH! I guess I will let that slide since she was filling in for Ami. And we all know how much Ami likes circles.

I was digging in my stamps stash and came out with this set. I have not played with it in a long time. It works for Valentine's Day nicely. The saying set is long retired but you can still get love blooms for only $12.95 plus s&h and tax.
The paper is More Mimi double sided. Simple sketch and your all set.

Amaris's Birthday

These are the card and tags that I made to accompany Amaris's birthday present. Julianna had the pleasure of celebrating the day with her. She had a wonderful time and spent the evening talking about it. She only knew the birthday girl and her sister but she did not let that stop her fun. I hope that she will always be surrounded by people that love her.

Card & Bag tag: Cupcake Cuties and Ordinary Greetings

Tuesday Template 02/02/2010

This week we have the pleasure of having the sketch done by Angie. WHOA! I love it. I hope that you think my card is as cool as this sketch. I got this idea off Heather Scott she calls this type of card a Wrap Flap Card. I kind of changed the sketch a little to incorporate both.

Sets: This is the Flower Collage and Great Greetings.

I have been trying to use stamps that are in my stash. This one is differently and oldie but for sure a goodie. I am looking at my stamp collection and trying to find ones that I have not used in a while, at least till I get my new ones. Hope you enjoy the oldies, hopeful the new ones will arrive any day.
