You're A Good Egg

Hello and welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions May kit
hosted by the VERY talented Nancy Penir

I, so enjoyed using the images Nancy sent in her kit.
I don't think I had any of them in my stash, I loved them all!

We have two very special guest this month
Linda and Colleen!
Please check the link below!
 Welcome to you both!

On these two cards I added my own embossed chicken wire 
from: Papertrey Ink, for the background   

 That hen/ chicken with the punk head just makes me smile!

 Nancy did most of the work on this one, the hen and nest was already put together ( how nice is that)

 I cut my own envelope liner without a die.... so easy!

I did more coloring than usual for me ,  it was relaxing.
Please stop by the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog for all the details and to see the other designers.

Thank you for the visit!
Let not your heart be troubled.

I am still enjoying adding liners to my envelopes! This

 I fussy cut and added some foam tape to the mailboxes to raise them off the page for a bit of dimension.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all my crafty friends and family .

Loving my new Bold and Brushy Bundle Alphabet set: from 
Concord&9th and pretty new jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

I am grateful for my own mother that gave me the gift of life and faith, for my mother in law (may she rest in peace) that brought up the man I fell in love with and my daughters that made me a mother and grandmother.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Twofer and Ombre

Twofer Card Challenge #5

Hello! I cannot even believe's Thursday already, feels like a Monday to me!
I've been gone almost every day this week, normally I am a homebody. 

I have been wanting to play in Darnell's new challenge since it started. Yay I played today!

The butterfly die on both cards is from the Papertrey Ink: Bitty Butterflies Covertpalte die.
 I have one layer of fun foam under 
the panel...makes for a flat mailing card with the jewels set inside .

 I used the negative for the second card.

I used the paper and stamp from : Simon Says Stamp ,
 Kind Heart Kit. Boy do I love that large stamp that fills the whole page. 

 I am still enjoying, using my Bitty Big paper (Papertrey Ink) to line the envelops using Wplus9 liner die.

Behind the butterflies is an ombre patterned paper from the 
SSS Kit. Jewels are from Pretty Pink Posh

Thank you so much for the visit and I hope you 
have a wonderful weekend starting right now:)

Oh Baby Times Three

Hello and welcome to the May Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop.
You have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the store, 
just by leaving a comment.

I have a friend that just became the grandmother of TRIPLETS !!!
Keeping it simple I decided to stamp the “oh baby” three times.
If you would like to see the new babies you can go to Linda's 
blog Here

I used the darling stamps : Oh baby cling set and Baby Blocks
from Serendipity Stamps !

I have this thing about lining my envelopes now and I stamped the beautiful image 
from the same set ,on my envelope
The beautiful paper is from  Pink Fresh Studio.

Make It Monday

Melissa has a fun video: ink blending on color cardstock.
This is my take below.

Before I placed the fun foam on the back to raise my panel I ran my tape gun over the holes on the back so when I turned it over , all I had to do was add some fine glitter to the top to fill in the holes. Not showing up much on the photo.

Hope your day was a good one. Busy day for me: went to Mass first thing this morning (so many prayers needed) made this card, made Lasagna, cleaned almost all the shutters and windows . I feel like I earned my keep today :)

Thanks for the visit!
