A Ladybug Hello

Hello Sunshine!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by
 http://www.mygrafico.com/digital-stamps/cat_95.html
and our theme is "Welcome Spring".  I've used an image from our sponsor for my simple card:

I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and layered it up and popped it up with pop-dots.  The card base is a Cricut cut.   A little a bit of ribbon that I've had for years and there you go! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us!

A Big "Howdy" from the Barn!

HOWDY!  This time at My Sheri Crafts Sheri has challenged us to make shaped cards!  Those are always fun!!!  I used a barn from Cricut's County Fair cartridge and made a card base with it.  


Inside I used the Board front from the Old West cartridge.  I love being able to do this with the Explore!  

This card isn't very fancy, but it's going to a little 7 year old boy that I'm just getting to know through the Zippy Zebra's Smiles and Hugs program.  This is a group that sends cards to children with chronic illness or special needs and their siblings.  No one gets left out!  I've got a drawerful of cards, so I thought this would be a great place to use a lot of them!

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card!  I hope you'll join us in this fun challenge this week!

Monochromatic Mums!

Hi!  We are going Monochromatic at Tuesday Throwdown this week!  We are sponsored this week by
                                            https://www.etsy.com/shop/MHKDesigns and they were generous enough to let us select a digi stamp or digi paper set from their collection.  I chose "Mum's The Word" stamp set for my card.



The image is cut with a Spellbinders die and mounted with foam dots over a paper doilie, which is mounted on a purple doilie that is a Silhouette cut.  The inside stamp is one I've had for at least 2 years and this is the first time I've used it!  It's from Stampabilities and I believe I'll be using it some more!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at Tuesday Throwdown!

My First 3D Paper Flowers!

This week at My Sheri Crafts our new challenge is from Sandy and she's asked us to celebrate Moms by making something with flowers.  

I've been seeing so many of these spiral cut flowers and they all look so wonderful that I just had to try them.  Mine don't look nearly as beautiful as so many I've seen, but I really like this wreath anyway!  



All cuts are Cricut , the flowers are from Flower Shoppe, the fern type leaves are from Dinosaur Tracks and the others are from Heritage.

These were really fun and I love the little wreaths!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us!

Thinking of You at My Sheri Crafts

Hello and Happy Saturday!  I hope you're ready for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  This week Sue has challenged us to make a "Thinking of You" type card.  It doesn't have to have those exact words, but must be along that line.

I used a "Make It Now" project from Cricut Design Space and added a few of my own touches:


I love the polka dots!  The paper is from Colorbok, the gems are from Recollections and the ribbon is from Joanns.  I'm leaving the inside blank until so I can use it for a general encouragement, sympathy or get well card.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at My Sheri Crafts!  And by the way, I actually got this post up on time!!!

I've entered this card here:

Bitten By The Bug 2 - Spring Fling & Easter Things
Crafting By Designs - 3 or more layers
Creatalicious Challenges - St Patrick's Day or use green
Eclectic Ellapu - thinking of you
Jo's Scrap Shack - anything goes
