You are my Sunshine

Today I have a fun Spring rain card to share.  I had a blast making this card.  I chose files and goodies from several different crafting retailers.

I used images from Cricut Create a Friend cartridge and Cricut Simply Charmed for my sweet little girl with the umbrella and the awesome rainbow cloud and raindrops!

For the super cool water puddle and my Spring flowers, I used SVG files from Miss Kate Cuttables.

My card measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".  I used patterned paper cut at 5" x 5" from the Echo Park Paper "Summer Days."
For my sentiment, I used a stamp from Scrappy Mom Stamps "Amusing Animals" stamped on a tag I cut using a die from Jaded Blossom "Mini tag dies 2."

Here is a close up of the darling little puddle jumper!
I will be entering a few challenges with this sweetheart:
Die Cut Divas- In the Garden
Fabulous Cricut Challenge- #249 Welcome Spring
Little Scrap Pieces- Show it Off Saturday

I hope you enjoyed my project this week.  See ya next time!

Happy 90th!

Today I have a card I made for my brother-in-law's grandmother.  She is turning 90 years young and has only asked to receive one more birthday card than she received last year!
The card base and Pumba are files from SVG Cutting Files.  You can no longer get Pumba(he was a hop-goodie), but you can buy the awesome card base HERE.

I used the Add Text feature in Design Space with my Cricut Explore and the Bronze Metallic Pen for my sentiment inside!

I used Party Animal Stamps and Mini Tag Dies 2 dies for my sentiments on the front.  You can find these and lots of other goodies from Jaded Blossom HERE.

 I put Pumba on an Action Wobble for fun.  Cardstock is Stampin' Up! Printed paper is from the Stampin' Up! Birthday Bash Designer Pack.  Please join me in wishing Mrs. Velma Gildon a Very Happy 90th Birthday, and many more to come!

Hello Bunny

I have a fresh spring card to share with you today!  I chose the Best Year Ever Designer Paper Pack from Stampin' Up! and the accessories as the focus medium for my card.
I love how this card turned out.  I limited myself to only colors that coordinated with the designer pack(except for the grass.)
This button is from the Best Year Ever button pack that matches the printed papers.  I used a Jaded Blossom Die from Mini Tag Dies 2 to mount the button on.
The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom Simple Sayings Candies, also mounted onto paper cut with the Jaded Blossom die.
You can find both of the items HERE.  The precious bunny is a cut from Cricut Kate's ABC's that I cut out using my Cricut Explore in Design space.   I also cut out the scalloped oval in Design Space, but I'm not sure which Cricut cut it is.  I added skittles to the flowers for fun.

I plan to enter my card in a few challenges:
Craftin' Desert Divas-Anything Goes
Die Cuttin' Divas-In the Garden
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge-Easter
Fusion Card Challenge-Cupcake Inspiration
Hiding In My Craft Room-Think Spring
Just Us Girls-#287 Spring
Little Scrap Pieces-Show It Off Saturday

Now, since this is my baby girl's birth month, I thought I'd have a small giveaway.  If you like my project, then you might be interested.  I am going to give a 12 x 12 pack of the Best Year Ever Designer Paper Pack, a package of the Best Year Ever Buttons, a package of the Best Year Ever Ribbon and a single piece of 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock in every coordinating color to match the designer Pack.

Here's the Catch:(you knew there would be)
1.  Follow my blog.
2.  Leave a comment on this post wishing my DD Happy Birthday.
At the end of the month, I will have my DD pick the winner.

Hope you liked my project today.  See ya next time!

Grill Master

Today's project is a new page for the Scrap/Cookbook I am making for my kids.  My hubby makes his own Shinerbock BBQ sauce every year around Christmas, puts it in jars and gives to family and friends.  So I made this page to post his recipe to.

I used some awesome files from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon.
Lisa has some amazing files that are super easy to use.

Check out the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon files HERE.
The sentiment on his apron is a stamp from the Pink by Design stamp set-Just for Men.
I just love the little spatula he is holding and of course, the grill is amazing!  Any man would be proud to own it! LOL

I will be printing hubby's recipe out and adding it later.

Hope you enjoyed my project.  See ya next time!

Hoppy Bunny Love

Today, I have a fun Easter treat to share.  I made these for a few friends and family, since we adults don't get visits from the Easter Bunny.

 I used the KawaiiSeaNuggetPlatforms file from SVG Cutting Files for the treat boxes(without the cute sea creatures and background that came with.)  My cute little bunny is from Cricut Create a Critter cartridge(say that 3 times fast.)  My sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper-Even More Punny-licious stamp set and the mat it is on is from Jaded Blossom-Card Mat Dies.  I added a cute little face with my Peachy Keen-Critter Faces stamps.  A few skittles for a little POP, and filled them with 3 Hershey Nugget candies.

 And for a little extra fun, I put my bunnies on the platform with an Action Wobble!
Plan to enter a few challenge with this project:
     Action Wobble-Anything Goes
         BBTB2-Bunny Challenge
