Hey Friends!!
I hope your Wednesday is going as great as mines.

I had some time to pop in my craft room to create this fun card. I know were all looking for spring to come but today in my part of the world (USA, VA) its looking gloomy and its still cold out. And because I had to to look at a video that Kristina W created for the Online Card Class: Stretch Your Dies . I  recreate my card using the technique she share.

I love the leaves she use and deiced to use my leaves and word die by My Creative Time. And she used some really cool distress color. Because I wanted a realistic leave I decided to use more natural colors and then my glitter brush pen by Wink of Stella; because the leaves look boring and need more. 

I really loved how this card turned out and it would be great to send this to anyone your grateful for or just grateful for the things they have done in your life. And lets face it... You not only grateful during the month of November where many of use reflect on or just because its Thanksgiving's or fall.  I know I'm grateful for a lot in my life.

Wrinkles Should..... Mark Twain

Hello Creative Friends!!! 
I super excited to be able to pop in and  share a card using the newest stamp "Giving Tree" release by Neat and Tangled. This new set is the cutest and I was so over joy that I could at least create one card using this set. I love the tree stump with the heart in the center. I first thought I would do some coloring but then I've been seeing so many pretty cards use vellum that I just know I had to create my own card using vellum. I deiced color only the heart. 

At first I was going to just glue the vellum to the kraft card stock and thought why not use pattern paper because it wouldn't be plan and then it hit me I have this beautiful flower paper by Gina K. Designs. And I know right way it would be perfect.

Hey Hey Crafty Friends Happy Friday,
I wanted to pop in and share a fun Easter card that I'm entering in over at My Creative Time.

I decided to use the sketch for the challenge which you can find HERE.

  I wanted to make Easter card so my girls can give to their teacher. Now all of them will have this same design just a different look using different colors. I am really happy with the way this one turned out and I thought it would be great card to duplicate for the girls teachers. I used pattern paper by Gina K Designs. This is an old paper so I'm not sure they still carry it. I used card stock by Paper Trey Ink. Now for My Creative Time I used dies: Stitched Message Bubble, To My Best Peeps, Stitched Round Tab, Arrow and Tag die, Tag Dies and to get the white background on the message bubble I used Fun Speech Bubbles Stamp set which has the coordinating die. Add some hemp behind the bunny and for my tag I used a cuttlebug embossing folder to help the tag stand out.

Okay enough talk here's my card:

A True Friend

Hey Friends,
I had some time to do some crafting today and I wanted to share my card. I thought I would have time to post my St. Patty's Day friendship card but time got away from me. So here I am trying to post it before the 12am est. here in Va. So I created this card using dies and stamps from My Creative Time: Grainy Wood Background, You're My Pot Of Gold, and I'm A Lucky Girl. I deiced to chalk up the clovers with a light green. I thought a gem would be great in the center.

GIU Blog Hop

Good Morning Creative Friends and Happy Sunday!
Welcome to Growing In Unity Blog Hop.

 I'm so honored to be apart of this hop with a great group of creative ladies. Today were featuring this oh so cute stamp by Phyllis Harris for Unity Stamp Company. Today I'm using "Miracles Happen..." and I would have to say this arrived in my life at the perfect moment. If you follow me you know I'm going through some tough times. So this one really touch my heart. I have two cards for you all.

 My first card I really wanted to focus on the image. I created my card base using  My Creative Time "Surprise Pop-Out Card" die.  I love the stitching and I really wanted to make the image my focus. So I thought this card base would be perfect. I distress the base starting distress inks tumbled glass and for the bottom salty ocean.  For the sentiment I thought it would be great as a shaker. I colored my girl in using Copics: dress: R14,  R17, Y13, Y18, hair: E23, E25, E29,  and skin: E31, and E33.  The sequins is nail art for the dollar tree. I seen it and thought this look like sequins. I know I know your amazed at what we can find and what we can think of as crafters.  

For my next card I really wanted to focus on the sweet ribbon and sentiment. I just love this ribbon and knew right away I wanted to create a background. I stamped the ribbon all over and colored with copics "RV52 and RV55. To get the shaker panel I used the same die by MCT on the first card only using the center portion to create a shake. I used Pretty Pink Posh "Pink Peonies" sequins. I love the way this one turned out.
