Happy Easter!

Look at all the goodies Tracey sent us! Don't you just love
 all the bright colors!

 Thanks again Kara for the photo!

 I seem to always make a card with the frame!  The Happy Easter is added from Waltzingmouse Stamps

I was not thrilled with how the one above came out but went 
ahead and included it!

I used a fine tip glue pen and added glitter.

I made a hill card about a year ago Here with this same set and just sorta recreated it with the papers from Tracey

Just look at those fun papers!

For the last one I tried to keep it very simple, in honor of Tracey’s  CAS style.  The last minute butterflies are from the 
I have to admit I made a few mistakes while making my cards, some I did not even post. I just kept messing up.

 I cant wait to see what they came up with!

I hope you have a Blessed Easter!

ColourQ #182

Such pretty colors this week at ColourQ 

Last card I made was not that great. I still want to thank all you sweet friends who left a nice comment anyway!  All the stickers were from the very same page and set, but I guess it just did not blend well. And then I threw in washi camera tape!
 It made me smile when I know some of you were just
 trying to be nice, you are so sweet. Thanks ! Your the best!

For this card I used Folk Art Medallion from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I love that company.  Best costumer service out there. 
I stamped the main image then slightly overlapped in a darker green, added a few more stamps and for the sentiment 
Say it Loud also from WMS.

 in a blog give-away . The other beautiful papers and stickers
 from a friend ! I used some of those gifts on this card. In fact all 
but the washi tape were given to me. I feel so blessed to have
 so many wonderful and kind people I have met due to this 
little ole blog of mine. 
Take care!

Egg Basket and World Down Syndrome Day

Down syndrome (Trisomy 21) is a chromosomal abnormality where a child is born with three copies of the 21st chromosome 
So that is why 3/21 is World Down Syndrome Day!

This is for you Delaney Beth! You are a Wonderful Blessing!

I wanted to make a card using this Egg Basket  at first I had a hard time because I did not have much to go with it. My husband informed me he did not like this first one in blue. I only listened to him because I was not too crazy about how it turned out either. So I tried again and I like the one I came up with next. 

I added the Blessing stamp from Serendipity Stamps as it seemed to fit, If you have a basket full of eggs that would be a blessing ! Someday I would love to walk out into my own yard and get eggs.
I wanted to post this earlier today …. just too busy!
Thanks for stoping by!

Make It Monday Inked Backgrounds

Happy First Day of Spring!

For my Serendipity card click below

Heather showed us this fun background technique!
This is NOT white embossed it is clear on white
 cardstock. The background ink resist 
the clear embossing. I sure had fun with this one.
Thanks Heather!

Sorry I know a lot of post for me in one day. I kinda like how this card turned out.  I clear embossed, using Papertrey Inks Fancy Flourishes  ,then rubbed fine linen ink and kraft on white. The sentiment is from Delightful Dahlia Stamp Set, The sentiment would not fit on the Papertrey Ink - Tremendous Tags Die so I only inked up the first part of the stamp then cleaned it up and only inked the last part so it would fit. I like the way it turned out.
All papers are from Papertrey Ink.  

I hope you are blessed with a wonderful spring day!

Happy Birthday Kim

SSBC # 8 Center Step Card

We were asked to make a Center Step Card. You can find out here Here. My friend Cathy sent me an email offering  to give me a few pre cut card base she made with her Cameo, boy was that easy. ( I made a few on my own as well) I spent my time on the on cutting out the eggs and glittering tiny details.  I woodgrain embossed the fence before I die cut it. This was fun and relaxing. Hope you find some time to play along. There are so many great stamps on sale right now at  Serendipity Stamps.

Waltzingmouse Blog Hop Luck!

Waltzingmouse Blog Hop “LUCK”

Lucky Shamrock
 Keeping this short because there will many beautiful cards to see. The flowers at the bottom are made with Shamrocks from Impression Obsession and Circle Shaker Frame Die
This card was sent out to one of my many sisters..Maryadona, her birthday was a few days ago. 

The Waltzingmouse Stamps I used are 

Make It Monday Clear / 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

I have two cards in this post one for MIM and one
 that will be at the end of the post. 

 I always had in my mind that I would use these two stamps together. I thought it said trip around the word not sun. Oh well , I still think they work well together. This is the very first time I have ever used this stamp from Rosie Poise …Yes, Kate it was because of your beautiful card set... that I even thought to use it. If you have not seen some of Kate’s cards you need to stop by .

Stylish Sentiments: Birthday Stamp Set
World Map Stamp Set
Rosie Posie Stamp 

First time doing this challenge

I saw this challenge on Deborah’s blog and thought it might be fun. The theme is animals but no birds. This stamp has a beautiful dove in the center but I blocked it out , so I just kept the lamb. 
I like it when I have a Christmas card ready and easy to mail. 
I will be posting my Waltzingmouse Blog Hope card today, soon.
Hope you enjoy your Sunday!

 See the beautiful dove , but no  birds this time.
