A little cake...

Hey guys,

This is my second post for the day. I wanted to make a birthday card, so I decided to try and combine a couple of challenges: the Avery Elle July Challenge, the CAS-ual Fridays challenge and the Moxie Fab challenge

Here's the card: 

I tried to combine two embossing powders (I've always wanted to  do that!) So I tried it out with the numbers on the bottom of the card and I absolutely love how it turned out. 

I usually don't put sentiments on the inside, but I love the way this turned out. And I adore that cupcake stamp! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Paper Smooches - "thanks"

Hey guys,

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. 

I saw the Paper Smooches challenge a few days ago and kept procrastinating about what to make. So many ideas came to my mind. However, here is what I ended up making. I used the colors from the photo for the background and the circle with the sentiment was inspired by the sun. 

This was the inspiration photo: 

And here's the card:

Hope you enjoyed.

Owl on wreath

Hi guys,

Today I have a card that I've been putting off on making but finally made it for the Lawnscaping Challenge.

Isn't it adorable? I love the way the owl is standing on the wreath. How adorable is he? As you can tell, there was some paper piecing done:)  I also added some glossy accents to the hearts and then finished off the card with some twine. 

Thanks for visiting. .

Celebrate in red, blue and white


I'm sorry I've been MIA for a short while. But I am back now:) 

I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun long weekend. It's funny that I made a card for the 4th of July, but after-the-fact. LOL! Anyway, here it is: 

I've never made a 4th of July card before, but I love the colors on this card! I love the vellum jar, the white polka dots from Paper Smooches and the red on top of the blue:) I really didn't think I could pull it off. And guess what? This card was made in 9 min and 40 seconds. Not bad! I wanted to add a few more faux-stitching lines to the stars so that there would be 2-3 lines all the way to the center, but I ran out of time.  

Anyways, I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge, the Paper Smooches Designer Sketch challenge and into the 10 Minutes Craft Dash


Thanks for stopping by.
