It's my day over at Creative Critterz Imaginations again, and the theme is Spring.  I used the enjoy the seasons cart to make this card.  I printed and cut the image at 3.6" and cut the banner two times and put the 2nd one on with pop dots.  I cut the center background piece from Elegant Edges at 4" and it's shadow, it is also on pop dots.  All the edges are inked, added buttons and twine.  This card was so fast and easy to do.

Labor of Love

So I haven't posted to many projects this last week, and missed a few challenges I wanted to do, because I was working on a gift for my little granddaughter.  Madison turned four last week and boy was she excited!  She has a baby doll but no clothes for it, so I made a few things for her.  I have to mention I have not done any sewing in about 8 years, so I was out of practice.

Zebra for you

This little card is made with all Stampin Up products, so quick and easy.

It's a Boy!!!!

So my little grandson Jackson ( he's 3) called me to tell me he was going to have another brother, he said " that's okay I like my brother, so I can have another one!" so cute, I know.  My daughter is a bit of a tomboy so she was a little nervous what to do with a girl, she is an awesome mother, she will have 3 little boys 4 and under and if she has just boys is fine with that.  So I will now have 7 grandsons and 3 granddaughters, perfect!  I am truly blessed and am grateful for each and everyone of my children and my sweet little grandchildren.  Life is good!!

The cloud is on pop dots and stickles added to the yellow dots. The sentiment is off the computer, and all the edges are inked.  Made this in a class with my friend Sue.

Beautiful Ride Card

Okay, it's official I am a spaz! I have somewhat new glasses, I don't wear them much because they make me dizzy. Well I was wearing them, and so my depth perception is still off a little, I grabbed my camera and hit the lens so hard on the underneath of my cabinets. Well to make a long story short I broke my focus ring, so this is not quit clear.

Still loving this paper, you may see it a lot, since I bought a bunch of it. Sentiment is from the computer, everything is inked, the basket and bird are on pop dots, I added stickles to the yellow dots. Made this with my friend Sue, she is amazing.

I made this for my husband and put chocolates in the little box. The bees and beehive were all stamped and colored in with Stampin Up markers, the wings were then glittered and then hand cut out. The tag is stampin up punches, the heart shape is a spellbinders die. I saw this somewhere a few years ago, just don't know where.

Recycle Earth

So it's my day over at Creative Critterz Imaginations and the theme is recycle earth. I took a plastic container we got at Costco filled with chocolate covered almonds, so good! I cleaned off the stickers with an adhesive remover. I took a 12x12 sheet of printable vinyl and used my blast off cart to print and cut these designs. The circle on top and squares on the front and back were cut at 4" as one piece. The other circles and flowers were cut at 1.2" and 1.5". The letters were cut at .7". The ribbon is Stampin Up. I hope you like it and got some inspiration!
