Special day

 I hadn't used my coloring calendar images in quite sometime so I pulled this spray out of my collection for the next birthday card I needed.  I fussy cut it out and paired it with a doily and more of the ribbon my sister gave me :)

  • Coloring for Calm 2018 calendar image - fussy cut and colored w/markers
  • Spellbinders - Delicate Doilies die
  • My minds eye - Quite Contrary paper
  • Stickles - Vintage Photo for flower centers
  • Gem and Ribbon

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

 I usually cut these type dies out completely and then put them on the front of my cards but this time I cut into my front panel, and added a yellow piece of paper on the inside of the card so that the flowers would stand out better, I think you can see it better on my close up picture.

  • Gemini - OX Eye Daisy die, cut directly into the front of the card, colored with both inks  through the die and then markers for the stem
  • Penny Black - Sprinkles and smiles sentiment stamp

I would like to share my card with The Flower Challenge Blog Birthday

Thanks for all the kind thoughts with our flooding situation.  I can't imagine what people go through that have their whole house flooded.  We are very close to having our crawl space pumped out and most of the garage is done. Prayers for all those going through floods, fires and anything else unexpected.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Tag in a card

 I think this card came from working on my Junk Journal this month, I make all kinds of tags and pockets and such for that so when I went to make my friends birthday card that was on my mind :) I used quite a few different pattern papers, and stamped my tag, adding more pattern paper at the top.  It is hard to see but I also used some die cut flowers on the front of the pocket I made to insert the tag into. I used more of the pretty trim my sister gifted me on the pocket.

  • Raspberry Road designs - Love lives here papers
  • Trim from my sister
  • Hero Arts - Nested tag shapes die
  • Crafters companion advent calendar - Flower and leaves die cuts
  • Impression Obsession - Birthday stamp set (birthday)
  • Dollar store stamps - Flowers, leaves and Happy

I would like to share my card with the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge Layers

I am a little late posting because we had severe flooding in our area, the shopping center we always go too was under water and the animal shelter had to be evacuated, they were wading in waist deep water trying to get them all out.  Through Facebook we are seeing many others that were impacted too.  I am so thankful that the rain finally stopped just before our 4 foot crawl space was up to the floor boards.  Our garage got a couple inches of water, so we have been working on pumping out water and cleaning up everything in the garage.  A damn in a city about an hour away burst and many people in the path of it had to be evacuated too.  

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Wish Big

 There has been a new Challenge called Word Power and when I came across his dimensional sticker I have had from the dollar store for years I thought I would give the challenge a try for my great nephews card.  I decided to break out some of my alphabet stickers and add the word BIG to the sentiment. The stars on the bottom half were in my cup of unused bits from other cards. Added a strip of Washi tape across the center.

  • Dollar store - Dimensional Wish sticker
  • Echo park - Fine and Dandy papers
  • Washi tape
  • Creative Imagination - Basic ABC stickers
  • Spellbinders - Large deckled Rectangle die

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today,

For you

 I had seen a few cards on Pinterest of people rolling papers back to make an opening, I am sorry I have tried to go back and look for them but can't find where I saw them, I took an oval die and just laid it on top to give me an idea on how much paper to roll back.  I stamped on a separate piece of cardstock and colored with markers.  There is a little sentiment on the tag in the stamped image so I didn't add another.

  • Power Poppy - Short Stacks stamp set, colored w/markers
  • Crate Paper - DIY Shop paper
  • Tearing back of paper and inked with Old paper distress ink
  • Sequins
