Hello all my sweet crafty friends! I hope you are having a wonderful summer and enjoying being outside.
It is time for another weekly challenge over at My Craft Spot. This weeks challenge is Just for little girls, how fun is that?! We all have little girls in our lives that we can make something fun for. I made this fun little castle box and filled it with goodies. I put the crown on foam tape and added stickles to the crown and star. The tag was made with the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped with the Tiny Tags stamp set both from My Craft Spot.
So I couldn't help myself, I had to make a card to match. For the front of the card I used Big Words Metal Dies and for the inside sentiment I used Big Sentiments both of these are from My Craft Spot. The cute card is from the Silhouette Store, it did have happy birthday cut out but I removed it and put the stamp in its place.

So it is this little cuties birthday, he is now 4. This kid is so stinkin cute and even sweeter than he is cute! He has been my best bud since I watched him for a week when he was one. In fact he called me mama (he called his mom mommy) for over a year and would cry for me. He still says he wants to live with me and I am okay with that unfortunately his parents aren't!
Happy birthday Ty I love you to the moon and back!
Tyler and Jackson going into their Karate class so tough!

Please forgive me if I haven't posted on your blogs lately, I have been a little busy!!! First one daughter had to have eye surgery and she has 3 little boys (the oldest is 5) so I went and helped her out. I was home one day and left for the birth of this sweet little one, she is number 4 for this daughter. I got home and two days later was at my sons watching his 4 kids while he had surgery. Whew I'm tired!!
Anyway this is London and she is just the sweetest little girl ever and yes that hair is amazing and stands straight up! I am truly blessed, she is my fourteenth grandchild! (Wow that makes me sound so old!!) My husband told our kids he wants 25 grandkids so...we may just make it.

There will be a ton of them coming out this month in the store at SVG Cutting Files, the states and military and some other fun ones. This one is the state Tennessee, I did that one since I lived in TN for 3 years awhile back and yes I love country music! The sentiment is from the computer. The string is Natural Jute String from My Craft Spot.

I know you are thinking "Another box card?" well I love these and will definitely be making more! The amazing thing is that they fold flat and fit into an A2 size envelope, so much pop for that size. This is a cut file from SVG Cuts.
So check out that sentiment on the back...it is perfect for this don't you think? It is from the Music stamp set from My Craft Spot. If you know anyone that loves music you have to get this stamp set!

This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is birthday, love that! I always need birthday cards or something for birthdays.
For my card I used a super fun and easy cut file from SVG Cutting Files called Party Shaker Tags. I chose the candle but there are 3 other things to choose from so cute!
The best part is that the stamp fit perfectly on the bottom inside piece so it is behind the sequins and glitter. That stamp is from the Chalkboard Sentiments stamp set. The Jute String is Parrot and the inside sentiment is from the Banner sentiments stamp set. The sequins are Lemon Meringue, Pumpkin and Caribbean Blues. All these products are from My Craft Spot.
