Simple Guy Birthday Card

Edited to add : I just realized we were to make a pie chart. I was thinking.. just use scraps, and I thought I was so smart to come up with something different.

This weeks MIM is by Melissa

 I used some foam tape to adhere the frame to the card, and last minute decided to tilt it.

  Hello, I hope your week is off to a great start. I wanted to give this weeks MIM a try and hope to make another one before the week is over.
 I needed a guy card but cant wait to try something with pinks.
 Everything is from Papertrey Ink

Thanks for stoping by.

Happy Birthday!

Good Morning!
I made this for, Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop early this morning. 
Loved the tip of using double layers of foam tape so there is more room for the sequins to move around.

There are a few things I would like to do over on this card, like the fox is up in the air and not quite sitting on the log…. No, wait.. he is behind the log!  This will be going to a child so he will just be happy shaking it. I used a mix of products on this one. The sequins are all from Pretty Pink Posh , and I love them!

 I also wanted to wish a very sweet friend Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday Lindsey! :Occasional Crafting. 
I think many of you know Lindsey, from her amazing work and well thought out cards.

Thanks for stoping by and I hope you have a very Blessed week!

 Hello! Welcome to Serendipity Stamps Spring Blog Hop!
 I just love all the new flowers.
 I also LOVE this new little apron stamp ! 

I am going to let the flowers and aprons do the talking. 

As you can see I did lots of heat embossing with gold , lost of fussy cutting and layering . Keeping it short so you can see the rest of the design team on the Hop. Enjoy

The flower sequins are from Paper Sweeties.

You Might Want To Grab A Pair Sunglasses!

I dont think I have ever made a card with such bright colors before.


The top card is before I decided to add more flowers and 
pop them up. I like them both, but a bit on the bright side for me.
This is the true color of what they look like in person too!

I used one of my favorite sets... and yes, I do own other sets but this was perfect for the challenge :) I made sure everything was dry then heat embossed in white.

Hope you enjoy the Hop!
Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Alphabets and Christmas

 I so... enjoyed making this card last night!
Its nice to have time to get back into the craft room.
I added chunky glitter to the letters.

Good Morning! Well, at least it was morning when I started taking photos! It took way more time to photograph this card than to make it. I am sure you have all gone through that. 

I just love this Floral Alphabet Cling Set from Serendipity Stamps. 
They can be bought individually or in a set. I love them!
I used my Stampin Up Red Ink and cut them out with my Stitched Mats: Squares from Lil Inkers Design.  I love that the die fits perfectly with the stamp, it made it so easy to make this card.
The holly is from Papertrey Ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Having Some Fun!

by Nichole this week.

I made this last night and I have to say it was fun . I guess my ink pads are on the dry side though.

 Good Morning!
I used all Papertrey Ink products, but the gold embossing powder.
Just pretend you don't see that the happy birthday sentiment is askew. After I cut out the die I put the tiny pieces back in . I like the way this turned out but my husband said I should not have used such a busy die, I know what he means …but I like it anyway. 

Take Care!

Happy Easter!

Top picture is one side of coin purse and bottom is the other side .
I have been very busy making these coins purses so I can add money to them for the grandkids. This is only a few of the ones I have made. I love making them! The longer ones as well. 

First... I want to apologize  for not commenting on many blogs in the last few weeks.  Between the funeral for my SIL Olga and me trying to finish 12 plus coin purses in time for Easter , I have not had much free time . I know I have said it before but I hope next week I get back on track I miss talking to you all. Some of you are so sweet to come by and leave a comment even though I have not left a comment on your blogs in a few weeks. You are the best!

I hope everyone that celebrates Easter , has a very blessed one. 
 We will be going to my daughter Nancy’s , for Easter.  Nancy and her family live just a few miles down the street. 

I needed to make one more card and this is for Nancy, she has two boys and one girl . 

God Bless!

Love You

  Hello! This time the Design Team was asked to use shades of gray with a LOVE theme. I found this one a bit on the difficult side for me. So I made two different cards. 
All you have to do is use a Serendipity Stamp or Die  and shades of gray. You do not have to have a love theme……. Lucky you :)

On both cards I heat embossed the Primitive Heart and on the top one I made a window using the Heart Solid Die
Not sure what card I like best.

This week’s sale is: Buy 3 items, Get a 4th one free. 
  Good through 4/23.  

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you play along for a chance to win 20$ off your order of 10$ or more.
