BBTB2 - Birthday!

Happy Monday!!!

School is out this week?!?!?

Well, this week over at BBTB2 the challenge is
all about Birthdays!
May is my Birthday Month, so I had no
problem with creating a fun card!

I just love this present cut from Everyday Pop-Up Cards.
I chose papers from my Scrap Stash
and my sentiment is from Fiskars.

I added a few pink flat back pearls for
embellishment and think it turned out pretty cute.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Busy Bees, Butterflies & Bugs

Happy Monday!!!

Well, it is May, can you believe it?!?!
I can't ;)

In desperation for the snow to stop here where I live,
I decided to chose a Spring Theme for the challenge
this week over at BBTB2!


For my card, I decided to follow a sketch from Paper Play Sketches.
I used the Bee from Garden Soup - I really love that cartridge!
My papers are from DCWV and used a paper flower
and some pearls for embellishments.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2
for this week's challenge!

Paper Play Sketches 39 - Thank you!

Happy Wednesday!

Okay, so it has been a LOOOOONG time since
I have linked up to another blog's challenge...

I have been so busy with life,
I barely get things done on time
for the Design Teams I'm currently on.

So this is a BIG moment ;)

Anyway, I started up watching some of CardzTV's videos,
another thing I haven't done in quite a long time,
and how can you not be inspired and motivated to create
after watching Mary, right?!?!

Her latest video is for the blog
I really liked the simplicity of the sketch
and wanted to give it a go.

So here is a Thank You card I made.
I used CardzTV's "Many Thanks" stamp set
for the sentiment.

The flower is cut from Accent Essentials.
I cut it at 1 1/2 inches with a shadow.
You can't tell in the pic,
but the white paper I used has a
shimmery/glossy finish.
It's a perfect match for the glittery flowers
in the background paper.
A fun little jewel was ideal for
the center of the flower.

My background paper is DCWV and
the middle mat is from My Mind's Eye.
The banner was from my scrap stash.

This card came together super quick
and I really like the clean and simple look to it.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Banners

Happy Monday!

Today over at BBTB2 a new challenge
has started where we want you to
feature a banner or sign.

I decided to make an unconventional wedding card.
The banners can be found on the Art Philosophy cart.

I played around with some of my scraps
and came up with this layout.

The banner is on Baker's Twine
and I used two brads to hang it from.

The sentiment is from a Fiskar's set.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

cut out a shadow scallop for the ladybug to sit upon.

added cute little flower buttons for embellishment.

My faux stitching was done with a White Gel Pen.
