Fairy card using Once Upon a Springtime Graphic 45 paper.

Wow I just love this paper.  I only bought the 8x8 paper pad for now.  I am sure I will be picking up the 12x12 paper soon.  I used glitter glue on the wings of the fairy, and glitter mist on the flowers.  Hard to tell in the photo.  Put lots of pearls around.  Here is wishing you all a nice spring day!

Blue Fairy

It has been awhile since I last posted.  This spring weather brought along a nasty virus with it.  My entire family got it.  I was the last to get it.  It was not a virus that made you throw up and get sick in the stomach.  It attacked your sinuses and your lungs.  I have not cough so much in years.  I thought my head or chest would explode and just forget about getting any sleep because you would just cough and cough.  Even taking a antibiotic didn't take the cough away.  Just something you have to work through.  I had my first good night sleep last night.  I am still coughing but not like I was. 

Well I had pulled out some of my old stamps awhile back and I picked out this fairy.  I decided to use blue glitter mist on the paper and then stamp the fairy on it.  I put some perfect pearls on her wings.  Had to give them some extra sparkle.  Hope you like her.

I just love sunflowers.  I bought this Precious Moments stamp back in the late 90's from Stampendous.  I used Staedtler watercolour pencils to color her in.  Hope she brightens your day.

Purple & yellow duo

I made 2 cards with the same backgrounds.  I pulled a 12x12 piece of coredinations color core paper out of my pack so I decided why not make 2 cards with the purple.  I embossed them both in the cuttlebug using the stylized flowers folder.  Then the fun part I sanded them to bring out the embossing.  On the first card shown I used Kate's ABCs cart, page 68 in the hand book to make the flowers.  I used spellbinders nestabilities classic scalloped circle dies for both cards.  I used clear yellow glass beads to dress up the first card a bit.  On the second card I used Sweet Novenber Stamps by Amy Young, Spring Elves.  I actually won these stamps about a year ago on All that scraps blog.....  First and only time I have ever won anything from a blog.  I stitched around the card, added a flower brad and some glitter glue. 

Thanks for looking!

Card for my Mom

I made this card for my mom.  Last Saturday we went to the craft stores to do some shopping and because I had a 10 dollar certificate for AC Moore.  It expired at the end of this month so I felt the need to spend it now...LOL.  Well AC Moore had some cricut carts on sale for $29.99.  With the 10 dollar coupon a cart would only cost me $19.99.  I couldn't decide which one to get.  A child's year or Winter frolic.  Mom was telling me she really liked A child's year.  I wanted a child's year to work on layouts of my kids.  So I went with a child's year.  I decided to make a card for her using this cart.  My mom loves loves loves flowers & plants.  She only has a very small patch of grass in her back yard because she has planted flowers and bushes in most of it.  I thought the little girl watering the flowers was a good one for her.  I am going to send it off in the mail today.  She lives only about a mile from me but I think it is nice to get a little something in the mail other then bills.

Believe card!

I was looking through the Kate's ABCs book and found these butterflies.  I decided to make a card using them.  The believe stamp is another Michael's dollar stamps.  I am a big fan of their dollar bin.  You just can't beat a stamp for a buck.  The curly brown glittler adhesive I found at Michael's too.  I thought they were pretty cool.  Already glittered, colored, and ready to stick.  They help dress up a card in no time.  Hope you like the card.  Have a great day all!

1st Easter card made this year.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to snag the last Kate's ABCs cart from J's.  They didn't even have a tag hanging up I just took a chance and asked it they had it and they had one left under the counter.  I am so glad I got this cart.  I really love all the cute images on it.  Since I have a boy & a girl I need to put Nate's ABCs on my wish list.

Onto my card.  I have to say I scraplifted this card from Youtube.  Here is the link for the video..

I know I will be making some more cards with this cart.  I will also be making cards with some of the older carts too with PC raising their prices.  With gas going up it is not in my budget to spend a lot of money for a cart.  Especially if I have Make the Cut.

My Pink Stamper Challenge

MPS is having a challenge to make a card with a feathered friend.  So here is my card.  I used the Serenade cart.  I used a 5X7 card base.  I cut the bird house at 3½" and the bird was done at 2½".  Just a Note.
