Sweet Birthday Wishes

Good Morning Crafty Friends
&
Happy Birthday To All The September Babies!!

My big 30th Birthday is coming up this Friday!!
Today I created this card for my sister. Although her birthday is next month I couldn't help myself in being extra early. This month we have so many birthdays that I wanted to at least get October Birthday out the way.  So today's card was inspired by My Creative Time Designer Challenge here's the photo:


So I thought I would make a card based on the photo. If you look next to the lemon jar you will find a beautiful rose with small oranges. That's the first thing to pop out to me. So I thought I would recreated that rose and baby oranges by using MCT: Rolled Flowers Dies, MCT: Stitched Leaves Die and for the oranges MCT Stitched Daisy Die. I didn't have a burlap stamp set so I went with MCT: Grainy Wood Background Background, for the banner I use MCT Vintage Stitched Label Die and the sentiment is from MCT Vintage Label Stamp. I also used these MCT products: MCT: Stitched Honey Come Dies, Wine Glasses: MCT Cocktail Party Stitched Dies. I love the way this card turned out!!! 




Happy Crafting AJ

Not sure where we will call home but my parents have been amazing. thankful that God has pleased me with an amazing family. I haven't craft in a long time. Other then having some pre-blog post set already I haven't craft while. It felt good to create this simple card for my niece who's celebrating her birthday this month.

I seen this challenge over at My Creative Time and thought I have a bird stamp...

Sure enough I did its called "Birthday Buddies" and it has a cute little bird and owl. I decide to follow the photo inspiration by using this cute bird and branch. I did use some of the color palette.

My Life has felt like a circus and when I seen this "Juggling Act" stamp by Sweet Stamps Shop I know I wanted to use this one. And seeing how my hubby and I have been juggling so much I found it fitting to send him this card. I really wanted to show my thanks and appreciation for all he do for our family.  I created this card using water color papers and distress marks. I just love creating with distress markers.

Enjoy!!

MCT: You Are Amazing!!

Hello Crafty Friends,

I wanted to come and share some news and my newest creations. Well the news first. Me and the Hubby will be moving from Washington Sated. Our military life has come to end and were moving on to bigger things. I loved meeting some many other military families and making friends along the way. I found two of my best friend through this journey. I will truly miss all of the wonderful people I have met. I'm going to miss you all!! But happy we have social media to keep in touch.  I'm going to miss the awesome WINTER months in WA. I know why am I talking about winter well I love anything FALL or WINTER and WA is the place to be for these amazing season. Truly loved these season and its rainy days. So now I'm back in MS and  can you believe that the girls will be back in school on Thursday!!!! Wow I wasn't ready for school to start back up but hey I got the job done and excited all in one. My oldest is going into the 6th grade (where has that time gone =( it dose make me sad that my baby is growing up and my youngest is going into Kindergartner. Excited to see her spread wings. Lastly my final share a little off topic but for a good reason =) the last few days we've had some thunder storm. Can I just say I love the sound. I haven't heard a good thunder storm in a long time and yet it felt peaceful.  Which brings me to my creations.... 

My Creative Time has this fun challenge which end tomorrow. I really wanted to use the color for this challenge. But I don't feel I capture all the colors but felt I was as close I could get with what I have. I used MCT You Are Fabulous stamp set. And as I created this card the thunder was roaring back to back and I thought I would create a pattern using this water colored stamp. I thought that it would be perfect. And I'm so excited that the weather and these color brought out a beautiful creation.  

Here's the inspiration & color challenge 

Here's my card!!
