Baby Blog hop

Hello and happy Saturday! There is an extra special blog hop happening today for expectant mama Lesley Croghan! 

When I went to write up my post, the photo file with my card for the hop was gone!! With no way to reproduce the card (I used the last of several papers) I am unable to show that card here ~ bummer. But rest assured Lesley has received it!

Today's card is a substitute for the hop!

Pop over to Lori Turner's blog here to see the line-up of cards sent to Lesley!


PTI ~ Make it Monday!

Hello! I managed to squeeze in a little crafting time to play along with this week's PTI Make it Monday. I'm so glad I did too because I love the way this card turned out!

I've paired this beautiful Jesus die with Meadow Greens and a few little Turning a New Leaf sprigs. The inks I used are Pale Peony (double stamped with my Misti), Green Parakeet, Spring Moss and Classic Kraft. I'll add an Easter sentiment to the inside before mailing.

Thanks for stopping by!


Tag You're It #67 ~ Happy Birthday To You!

Hello friends! I haven't played along with the Tag You're It challenge for a long time. I'm here to remedy that today with my take on Marion Vagg's pretty inspiration tag!

I was inspired by the layered leaves and flourishes along with the pop of color from the bloom. My tag, stamps and dies are all Papertrey Ink with the exception of the Fancy Flourish die cuts by My Favorite Things. I'll be setting this one aside for my mom's birthday gift!

Have a blessed day!


CTS #212 ~ Hello!

Hello sweet peeps! I hope it's warm where you are. We have snow, we have wind, we have low temps and it's not...done...yet. What's a girl to do? Make cards of course!! I have one today for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

I used my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Notes die to cut some cute patterned paper. I attached it to my card base then added small snippets of a paper doily. The card base was cut at 5 1/2" x 4" to let the doily flow off the edge on either side. My die cut sentiment is from Mama Elephant. Things looked a bit plain so I added a row of sequins (4mm & 6mm Metallic Gold, 6mm Marigold, 4mm & 6mm Marshmallow).

I'm so happy you took the time to stop by! 


Precious Remembrance Shop ~ Design it Monday!

Good Monday morning! I'm here with a wee peek at the card I'm sharing on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today. I hope you have a minute or two to go check out my Design It Monday post!

Wishing you a blessed day!
