DAD card

Hello and WELCOME to my blog!  I'm so glad you dropped by!  We have a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts today and our DT sister Sandy has set the theme of  "Anything Masculine".  Easy Peasy, right?  Here's my card:

Super simple, super fun card!  I made this with my Gypsy and with my new Silhouette Portrait.  The die cut is from the Silhouette store and the sentiment is computer generated.

Head on over to My Sheri Crafts and check out the other beautiful inspiration projects, then join in the fun!

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Hellooooooo!  It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and we are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week!  Make a Teacher Appreciation gift and we are sponsored by The Cutting Cafe.

 I bought a stack of empty picture frames at an auction recently with ideas swirling in my mind! Here is my first project with one!

The DP is from Provocraft, the sentiment is computer generated but I first saw it at Scrap-a-licious Times.   The tag in the corner is from The Cutting Cafe, Teacher Appreciation Circle Set.  I added a sticker from Mary Englebreit and some hemp twine.  The apple in the lower corner came from a button cover set that I bought at a yard sale.

This was a really fun project and I thought it came out pretty cute! find a teacher to give it to!  :0)

Come on over to Tuesday Throwdown and join in the fun!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hi Folks!  It's my turn to choose the theme for our new challenge at My Sheri Crafts this week and I chose "April Showers Bring May Flowers" - use at least 3 flowers on your project.

This frame is cut from the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge.   I cut it twice, enlarging the second one just a bit and then another cut of the birdhouse.  The flowers are all from my stash, most Paper Studio I believe. The sentiment is a cut from Mother's Day 2010 cartridge.

That's it!  Now it's your turn!

Froggy Mother's Day

Hello!  It's time for another Tuesday Throwdown challenge and our theme is "Special Lady".  Our sponsor is the wonderful  Robyn's Fetish.  She has SO MANY great images to choose from.  I chose to use "Five Little Froggies" to make a Mother's Day card for my mother-in-law.  She collects frogs and in addition to having them placed around the house, she has a 4 shelf curio cabinet that is absolutely FULL of frogs!  So I'm hoping she likes this card!

I just think these frogs are so cute and I've always loved wishing wells, so it's a perfect combination!  I also like the contrast of this green foil paper with the burlap ribbon.  I created the sentiments on my computer using "Comic" font.

Supply list:  The Paper Studio - green foil paper and burlap flower
Offray - burlap ribbon
Sissix - leaf die cut
Spellbinders - labels 
Imaginisce - Irock gems
Spectrum Noir - markers

Thank you for stopping by and visiting today! Please leave me a note and I hope you will come on over to Tuesday Throwdown and join in the fun!  See ya there!
