Happy Birthday!


Hi, there friends!  Are you ready for a sock hop?  I hope my brother-in-law is when he receives this birthday card I made for him, lol!  Oh, the memories for him with classic cars and a few sock hops, too, I'm sure!  I always try to make him a card with a car on it and I add his name on the front of the car.  My brother-in-law still enjoy going to car shows looking at all the cars.  He has restored a few cars over the years and his son, Dean, enjoys the hobby, too.  I remember enjoying a ride in the Model T car Don had many years ago.  I colored all the images with copics.  This fun set is from Sunny Studio. I'm entering this card over at Word Art Wednesday



Here is a peek of the inside of the card...



A few weeks ago, I said that I needed to clean and organize my craft room.  Well, I'm happy to say that I got a lot done.  I still have some things to do, but it's great to have things organized.  I have to admit that I'm a paper hoarder!  How did I get this problem, lol!  Anyways, this craft hobby has brought me lots of joy and I've met the sweetest best people!  And, having said that I thank you so much for all your support and your sweet comments that you always give to me by coming to my blog!  Take good care and enjoy your day!!

Hugs!

Paper Sweeties January 2020! Release Rewind!



Hi, friends!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties January Release Rewind!  I hope you've enjoyed all the inspiration from the team for the new release so far.  Today, for the rewind we combine previously released sets with the new sets.

Debbie is releasing a new Sweet Kit this month.  The two new sets that go along with the Sweet Kit are called Life Begins after Coffee and We go together! Today, I am highlighting the We go together set.


For my card, I started with a white card base.  The scalloped frames are from the set Sweet Cuts-Rectangle Scallop Frames.  The images and sentiments are from the new set We go togehter.  Those little smiley faces with the hearts are just too cute!!  And, perfect sentiments to go along with the fun images!  More hearts were added to the card by die cutting the borders from the set Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  The labels are from the sweet borders set, also.  Sequins (Grape) and twine to finish the card.

The inside sentiment is from the set Sent from my heart.

Paper Sweeties January 2020-Release Party!







Hi, friends!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties January Release Party!

Debbie is releasing a new Sweet Kit this month.  The two new sets that go along with the Sweet Kit are called Life Begins after Coffee and We go together! Today, I am highlighting the We go together set.  It's a fun cute set with smiley faces and yummy donuts!  A perfect set to have on hand!





For my card, I started with a cream card base.  I stamped the coffee and donuts images for the background and colored them with copics.  The sentiments were stamped onto a die cut label from the set Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  The scalloped circle frame is from the set Sweet Cuts-Circle Scallop Frames.  The Ribbon(Raspberry) and sequins Bubblegum are from Paper Sweeties, also.  Nuvo Glitter Accents were applied to the donuts.

The inside sentiment and heart is from the set Love you to pieces.

Dies R Us Challenge January 15, 2020! (Birthday)




Hi, there!


We have some exciting news to share with you!  Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts!  

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!  We hope you take a look to see what awesome products Didi Crafts has for you to purchase...enjoy!!


Once again it's the second challenge of the month for Dies R Us!  And, it's a birthday challenge!  An easy theme, but we just ask that you use at least one metal die to be eligible for the prize.

I decided to combine a couple of birthday dies to make my birthday card.  I think the Sue Wilson birthday frame die fit well with Lawn Fawn sentiment and cute little party chicks!




For my card, I started with a white card base and used the Sue Wilson birthday frame die for the background.  I die cut it a couple more times for layering with pink and yellow.  The birthday chicks and sentiment die are from Lawn Fawn.  I wanted to add some sparkle fun, so I carefully added Nuvo silver glimmer paste to several areas.

All the dies that were used on my card can be found in the shop...


 There are so many choices at Dies R Us store!  Hope you check out the store for  amazing selection of dies, stamps, papers, inks, etc.!  I'd love to see your project in the challenge...happy creating!

Would you like more inspiration?  Check out some amazing creations from my talented teammates!
