Happy ‘three post’ Thursday!
My first post is for
Create with Connie and Mary and our new color challenge for the week.
I love these soft, sweet colors!
So I found an adorable bunny to go along with these colors –
This just makes me want to squeeee!
The bunny came from the We Must Celebrate stamp set in the Spring Mini. It was a strip of animals and I just fussy cut him from the bunch.
From that, I colored him and just added different pieces to build the card. The final touch was the silver hearts. Just the right finishing touch!
The card also use Sale-a-Bration paper too! It’s SOOO elegant!
The others members on our Design Team created some beautiful cards! Check them out

Top ‘o the Friday to ya! Happy March 17th – Saint Patrick’s Day – Friday – whatever it is to you!
I did made little treats for my coworkers. I also decided to create a card to go with them. A dear coworker and friend is leaving and I wanted to wish her well.
Color Throwdown also had great colors that just fit my needs perfectly too! Here are there challenge colors –
Very festive I’d say.
And, from the looks of my card, their picture inspired me too!
I like how fun my card is!
These are the treats I made too!
Fun and festive!
I followed a tutorial
here for the shamrock/clovers. It was pretty easy once I got started.
The card, of course was my own design! I used two greens that really clash, Cucumber Crush and Emerald Envy. I liked how the gold and black offset them in this card.
What do you think? Fun? Festive? I’d love to hear from you!
It’s Thursday and the day to play with
Create with Connie and Mary.
This week it’s a cool sketch challenge. We alternate them.
So…..pondering this one. I had the new Envelope Paper setting out…….let’s go with that! I came up with this fabulous card –
Nice, huh? It’s SOO fun I think!
It uses minimal stampin too!
I think these bold framelit words are going to be a favorite of mine. I already made three cards using them! I love the added rhinestone bling here too! Just the right touch.
So, what you think? Leave some love.
Then head over to
Create with Connie and Mary, see what the others have created, and PLAY along. This one is a great out of the box sketch. I love what all the team has done with it!

I bet my hubs was hoping this was for him. Like a sign or something!
This was another requested card for my
May Card Buffet this past weekend. Great idea it is. And, Stampin’ Up even has a retirement stamp too!
I came up with this –
Wonderfully cheery card I’d say!
I’ve been seeing this lovely Sunburst Framelit used to make flowers – I wanted to try it. I thought it was a good idea to show my customers another use for this framelit too. It was perfect for this card!
I see more of these fun flowers in my future! The are just so happy!
I slightly curled the edges for added dimension off the card front and set the layers a little off as well.
Sadly, these Circles Collection framelits are retiring. So, we will have to use another circle to make these.
I’d love to read your happy comments! It’s good ‘card-carma’!!
Happy New Year!
The start of ‘new’ things……sigh. For my daughter, the start of the second of three-quarters needed to graduate!!! Wow!!
So, a little encouragement in the form of paper –
Something sweet and simple.
I got my inspiration from my daughter, but also from
Freshly Made Sketches –
Can You Case It –
Both very clean in design and color.
I chose lighter colors which can be hard to see the details –
Turned slightly, you can see the hearts.
Up close you can see the detailing.
Whether you’re starting to attend a class or teaching a class,
as many teachers went back to work today, have a great day!!! You are loved!
Funny title, right?
I needed to make a card for a care package. You know, college finals. Quarter system. It’s tough. But, with my nifty cards
and my delightful box of snacks and drinks – it’s all the better!
I came up with this card. It’s just so fitting for my daughter –
I loved it. And, she loved it. Along with the snacks too!
I mixed old with new here. The ‘brain’ comes from a retired graduation set, Pomp & Circumstance. I’m so glad I kept this set too. You never know…….
……..the alphabet just came out in the new 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up Catalog.
I chose to go with UCLA’s school colors. It just made sense.
I’d love to hear what you think?
I have a very special near and dear post today for my daughter.
She works for a non-profit organization in Boston which is dedicated to ending homelessness. She is assisting with the yearly spring fundraising event for the first time.
In mom fashion, I wanted to make her a card to wish her all the best of luck with this.
I was inspired by
retro sketches .
I like to somehow coordinate themes, logos and colors when I make these types of cards. Color and theme came from the organization. Here is my combination –
It’s fun and fresh!
I pulled out some retired oldies to make it. Not to mention, lots of scrap card stock from the stash! All worth it, I’d say. (Note, I used the retired Sale-a-Bration set, So Happy For You.)
Best of luck to you my dear – this event will be awesome! I couldn’t be more proud of you!
