Celebrate today

Hey all! What's up?  I've been down and out of commission as far as card making lately due to some severe back pain....but things are picking up now and I hope to be back to creating in full swing.  This is the first day I've crafted for awhile now. This card uses some pretty papers from Teresa Collins called Sweet Afternoon:

celebrate today

I threw in EP, Webster's Pages, and some Crate Paper as well.  I guess I like the title of it, "Celebrate today..."  Ha!  Truly live for the day and take nothing for granted!  Especially our body parts! No fun when we are in pain and we can't craft and do what we love, right? :)

Can't believe it's Friday already, enjoy!

With all the warm weather arriving lately, I like how these pastel colored flowers seem to mark the beginning of Summer! Very easy card, not much to explain.


Hope you are all having a wonderful Memorial Holiday here in the states!

Where flowers bloom

Popping in today to share lavender and green, yum!  I used Jane's Doodles, Pretty Peonies stamps for this card and some Hero Arts inks for the green flower:

where flowers bloom

I seriously can't remember if the colored papers I used were Papertrey Ink or Bazzill? Ack...that's what I get for throwing supply lists away when I know I don't need the card anymore.  My bad!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!

Just a very sweet and simple card for today, it has very similar colors as my last post, I was using up so much of my Dear Lizzy/American Crafts, 6 x 6 paper pad, yummy:

Let the fun begin

I normally use extremely bright colors and cupcakes or two on birthday cards, but I thought it'd be fun to try something different:

Let the fun begin

This birthday card is less frilly, more subtle in colors, and I let the delicate patterned papers and the flag banner do the talking.  I like it. :)

Thanks for being a great friend

Happy Monday!! My card for today.  For the sentiment, there is a frame and a floral image that surrounds the sentiment.  I only wanted to stamp the words so I cut through my clear stamp:

Those who bring sunshine...

Popping in to share a card that was not picked up for pubs, it's all pink and white, with a touch of cream....and the theme was for flowers.  I just love that sentiment from Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards:

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others

For everyone who is celebrating Mother's Day tomorrow with your family, have a wonderful and blessed day!

Flutter by

A card using a very fun floral set by Lawn Fawn called Flutter by.  Did some coloring and added a bit of stickles to the edges of the flowers.

Embellished femininity

Sometimes when I'm not in the mood to stamp, I will reach for my embellishments and just simply slap them onto my card and see what I come up with:


You could change out the sentiment on this card, and I think it would make a nice Mother's Day card.

Just a quick share of one of my favorite cards that was published in the April issue of CARDS.  The theme was for butterflies:

Apr Pub1

I love the purple candles in the background that the magazine used, so pretty!  That's it, I need to finish some other work here and then off to the post office.

See you!
