Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge

We all wait in great anticipation to learn if the groundhog sees his shadow!  Here in Arizona, it doesn't much matter - as our weather is pretty near always fabulous (I write this while it has been raining non-stop for 24 hours - a rarity!)  This card, though, shares the fun I have with a friend - we have always made a point of reconnecting on Groundhog Day.  You'll also notice to faux stitching on my card - for entry into Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything Goes with a Twist.  This week's twist is stitching - faux or real.  Join in the fun at Suzy Bee's - you're sure to love the fabulous cards you'll find there...get inspired and start creating your own card with stitching today!

Queen of Cards #1 - Thank You, Dad

Today I have a really simple card for you. I love cards like this that have a splash of decorative paper and the sentiment is the main focus.

Birds and Balloons - Shadowbox

Thanks for joining me on my blog today!  I'm pleased to share with you another Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything Goes with a Twist.  Today's twist is layers.  Since the card I hoped to finish today has a layer or two - perfect for the challenge.  Today's card is a shadowbox card using the digital image Balloon Birdie from 2 Cute Ink.  I layered some blue paper over the purple-checked shadowbox - and layered some extra balloons for an additional festive look.

Happy Spring!

I love playing along with Suzy Bee's Weekly Challenge - this week's challenge is ATG with sparkle!  Be sure to take a peak at all the sparkly entries!

My inspiration today came from Kim Paley at Crafts U Print with her Butterfly Scroll Frame.  However, I didn't care for my first card....though I like the idea of the butterfly frame.  So more searching lead me to SVG Cuts Butterfly Garden Frame Collection...I was so inspired by the Butterfly Garden frame - but wanted to move the butterflies around.  After hitting a variety of buttons - I found by using Exclude on eCal I could weld the butterfly to the frame and get the cut I want.  I had an amazing time....made eight cards, with four more to go!  here are four I made with "sparkle" - glittered butterflies.

Green Shamrock

Good Morning, All!

I have more St. Patrick's Day cards for you all.  

For today's cards, I wanted to use the Kiss Me Green Image from Fontaholics.  The colors and design of this image is perfect for St. Patrick's Day!  I though it would make fantastic St. Patrick's Day cards.  I added a sentiment from Lazy Daisy Designs - and on the second card, a doodle frame from Miss Kate Cuttables cut from patterned paper.  Other than that and some help from my eClips, the majority of the cards are made up of just patterned paper left over from my grandson's green scrapbook.

Enjoy!

Suzy Bee Challenge - Clean & Simple - Using Scalloped Shamrock

Good Morning, All!

Last week I shared some of my Valentine's, and this week I am working on St. Patrick's Day.  I always seem to fall back to SVGCuts free Scalloped Shamrock - I love this simple file so much I wanted to show you guys!

Since this file is so simple to cut and put together, I am joining Suzy Bee in her first challenge of the year - Anything Goes with a Twist - the Twist being Clean and Simple.


Enjoy!

Bee Happy from Too Cute Ink

The bee happily brings well wishes.  This is a fun digital image from 2 Cute Ink that gives a friendly feel to your cards because, for some reason, cute bees and smiles sort of go together.  If you think so, too, and want this image free, sign up for 2 Cute Ink's Newsletter

Valentine

It's just a habit of mine to save time by mass producing cards - with a twist.  This time my Valentine card is made with scraps from a variety of paper collections - Christmas, Graphic 45 Place in Time, and Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters.  


Because I used the heart shape on my Christmas cards, I was on a roll in changing the message and getting these cut quickly.  Now I'm finally able to take advantage of eClips' Print-2-Cut function - thanks to Santa Hubby.  So I'm saving lots of time by keeping the cards basically the same - just changing up the paper and design.

So... here's another card.
