Tuesday Template 3/30/10

This template came to us from Ami, I believe. I had trouble with this one. I was not sure how to use the two white rectangles. Then, I just decided to make my embellishment go through it. LOL!

This card is done with the Wild West stamp set. Its is one that I have not played with in a while. I saw Ami's star and it made me think of this set.

Let me know what you think of the coloring. I am just getting used to my copics. And any advise is greatly appreciated.

If you should be interested in playing be sure to let us know, the more the merrier. Please mark your item and either send it to me referencing TT033010 or post it to your blog and send us the link via our comments.

Over Spring Break we took the kids to Branson, Missouri. This is a place called Butterfly Palace and as you can see this kids loved it. I thought the stills where very pretty so I thought I would share them with you. Enjoy.


Sometimes my inspiration comes from the strangest things. I often wonder how other peple create. This card was inspired by a commercial I saw that had pretty teal ribbon. Strange right?
Can you see that the cross is popped?
I really find it easy to use this set, I have been creating a lot with it lately.

Easter Chick

Easter is right around the corner and I alway make cards for our family. So this year I am working to make each family a special card just for them. I fell in love with this ribbon and ended up making the card around it. LOL, isn't it funny how you can get inspiration from just about anything.
Hope this card brightens your day and gets you creating.

Just ducky!

Just ducky - this is how things should be all the time, right? When our family was on spring break this past week we had a scare. Matthew had terrible back pain followed by other symptoms which landed us in the ER in a strange town. I believe all the prayers that were sent up from our family and friends helped Matthew to get relief. We still do not know fully what is going on with him but he is seeing his doctor.

So, here is a little card to represent that all things should be just ducky from now on!

Tuesday Template 03/23/10

Melinda brought us this challenging sketch. She always makes it hard on me. If I did not know what a sweet person she is I would think it is on purpose.

My sample card is done with mostly patterned paper to create the sketch. Then I used the sentiment from the little friends set. The set is so cute with a pig, horse, chick and a monkey check it out on page #64 of the base inspiration book.

March Blog Hop -

Shirley is hosting another awesome Blog Hops for us!

The theme this time around is Easter. I have been creating a lot lately with this theme. So, to challenge myself I decided no cards.... Here is what I came up is a little table decoration. And to make it more versitile I did the reverse side with a Spring theme. I used the Hoppity Skippity stamp set, the Mia's Cottage Soar with it Collection. I wanted to also, display the uber cute buttons we carry, these are tangerine.

And have some fun blog hopping for other Easter themed items....

Don't forget to check out these other amazing creations...

Snail Mail - SOTM

Here are a couple of samples that are using the March Stamp of the Month (SOTM). The first one is using the snail and paper piecing him in the Winchester Soar with it collection. This paper collection is so fun to use. I am not sure why I often overlook it.
The lady bug card is similar to a card done by Laurie Willison. She is fabulous and I just had to stamp lift this one. She used a different set but I loved the layout and design that I copied it.

Tuesday Template 03-09-10

Angie brought us another great sketch. I worked on this one for a while since I do not normally use three images. I felt like I had to use the same image or make myself go crazy trying to coordinate them. LOL!
Well, here we have another sample with the March SOTM Snail Mail. The paper is Catalynee. Hope you like it.

Plus, I decorated the inside again.

Rustic Chic Girl

This little girl reminds me of my sweet Julianna. She looks a lot like her at four, now my girl is nine. Oh, how I miss the little girl she was. I would put pigtails in her hair. And dress her up. Kids really grow up so quickly.
Now, she is become a sweet young lady. She is beautiful inside and out.
Hopefully it will slow down soon, and we will get to enjoy them more.

I even had enough creative juice to decorate the inside. Thanks Angie for making this an easy one.
