Wild Colors!!!

Another card inspired ( OK..... copied) from a magazine. Sometimes I need a little help getting creative. Again, I changed it up a bit to make it more my taste. I know the second photo is a little blurry but it says "make a wish". Foam tape pops out some of the layers. Diana

Silly Bday Card

I saw this card in a magazine and decided it looked fun to make. Changed it up a bit though. The turtle is from Walk in My Garden as is the dragon fly. Diana

BBTB Challenge

Today's card was so fun. I decided to use the border feature (BBTB issued that challenge!) and see what I could come up with. And I love yellow and red together. I used foam tape to add dimension to the flowers. Diana

Scripture Tote

Abby's little friend is getting baptized tomorrow. Had I know this sooner I wouldn't have had to come up with this scripture tote that Abby and I spent the morning making. However, it wasn't too bad. Abby was able to do most of the straight seems with little guidance.

Spring is here...I think.

There is much to love about spring. The rain showers, the budding plants and warmer temps. Unfortunately it has been a little slow in arriving and remaining. So here I am, with all my indoor chores done (but tons to do outside) and so it seemed like a little dose of papercrafting would be fun, and a lot warmer than braving the blustery day outside. This card was made using Walk in my garden and some bright colors.
This wedding card was done with the cuddlebug. The only tricky part is not distroying the embossing already done when you are working with more than one folder. As a small detail, I cut around the lower eyelet border. The emblem in the center in distressed to make it pop. Diana

Today's card

I made this card tonight to cheer up after another rainy day. Used one of the Doodlecharm flowers and the walk in my garden ladybug. The stitching is done with a pen and there is a little shading with chalk ink. Too cute. Diana

Grace-Marie's Easter Handout

Grace-Marie made these cute handouts for RS at church on Easter Sunday. (We all know her computer is down for the count so I am posting this for her). She used the Doodlecharm cart and the flower is attached with a brad. But the best part of course is the chocolate!!! Here he is from the side. You can see the York patty sandwiched in between the head and tail.
This is his behind with his fuzzy (and sparkly) little tail. Sorry about the glare from the flash.

TV was boring tonight so.....

I made this little purse using Tags, hold blank little 3x3 notes. Thought it could make a cute little gift. All the text was preprinted to go with the paper so it was SO easy. A little demensional tape, ribbon and brads and it was done. Lots more fun than watching the news. Diana

Cuttlebug Card

So this card started out entirely differently but I trashed it keeping only the embossed background. This is what I next came up with. The bunny is a sticker but everything else was done with the embossing folders from cuttlebug. Everything is inked and distressed with two different shades of green chalk. Diana

Another rainy day!!

Isn't this sweet? (Don't answer that, I LIKE IT) The sheep is from paperdolls and is embossed in the cuttlebug. One day I will get the focus figured out on our camera but until then deal with it. (PMS) (again)
This card is Design Studio welded and is Doodlecharms. The words are welded too and is Wildcard. The pickles were handcut and embossed from the back with a pencil. (very before cricut) This is a tiny card just right for a thank you. Diana

Snowy day so....

Well, Ron is back on his way to Nigeria and it is snowing outside so.... it is time to craft. I wasn't feeling very creative but I think this came out cute. It is another post it note holder and I used A walk in my garden cartridge for the images. I love my bind-it-all!!!! I also used the coasters from Angie at Chic n Scratch which are great for this project. She even has a video that shows you how to make these. Diana
