One Year Greater Mom Card

Hello and happy Friday!!  Usually I look forward to Fridays, especially after a long week of work and softball, but Bean made All Stars (YAYYYY!!!), which means practice every evening and twice on Saturdays.  So no real break this weekend.  But it's a small price to pay for your child's happiness - right??

Trust me, I'm not complaining, but I really need a break!

For today though, I will be sharing a card for my Mom's birthday.

I'm going with really bright colors and a corner cut out thing that I believe I saw on Pinterest.  I put lots of foam dots to separate the back paper from the first, so in my personal opinion, I think it looks kinda cool.  The image is Bugaboo Stamps Teacup Flowers 1, and the sentiment is from Cricut cart Plantin Schoolbook, cut a couple times and glazed.

My Mom is turning 70 this year, and I'm so blessed to have her in my life!!  So thank you for taking a look at her card and have a wonderful weekend.

This meets the following challenges: Craft Rocket Challenge #49: Birthday, Crafting With an Attitude: Always Anything Goes, Crafty Creations: Anything Goes, Watercooler Wednesdays: All About Occasions, and the Crafty Addicts: Anything Goes with Flowers option.

Fun Birthday Monkey Card

Hello all and hope you are having a wonderful day.  I'm at least indoors, avoiding the 100 degree weather!  But sooner or later I'm going to have to go somewhere which will require a walk to my car....then a walk from my car to a building.

But I will worry about that when the time comes and for now, I'll share a card.

This is also shared at The Corrosive Challenge Blog for this month's Anything Goes challenge!  Super easy to enter and you have all month long to link up.  I thought this adorable Funny Valentine digi by MMedel Illustrations was also perfect as a birthday image for Little Bit who I also call Monkey - because she's quite the climber and wild child.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Itty Bitty Banners.  So join in if you can!

Surprised Bird and 2006 Papers

Hello and wow, it's already June!  I missed most of May, in bed with a respiratory infection, but I hear that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger....so I should be like a super hero by now!

Today I would like to share a card using paper from 2006 (yes, the year 2006) for the Papercraft Business Challenge #7 Anything Goes with the option of using your oldest paper.

I remember buying this paper from Hobby Lobby thinking it was the BEST deal ever!  I used a 40% off coupon, and the stack was around an inch thick, and the papers were 12" by 12".  Twelve years later and I still have this stack!  It took me a while to stop looking for quantity.  There's no way I could ever use up an entire 12" stack, and I don't scrapbook.  I'm still a paper hoarder but now I purchase the smaller size stacks and I actually make an effort to use them up.

So that's my story of my first paper purchase!  The image is a From The Heart Stamp - by Faith who is no longer with us.  She was truly talented.

So you have all month to join in the Papercraft Business Challenge!  This also meets the following challenges: Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, and Crafting From the Heart: Anything Goes.

Christmas Snowmen block card

Hello and just one more day until my kids are officially on summer break.  This is about the time that I stock up on pineapple mimosa!  But for today, I'm sharing an oldie but goodie - which is when we share older but still much loved Bugaboo Stamps.

I'm featuring Bugaboo Stamps Snowmen Block in my efforts to create Christmas cards all year long.  I also attempt to keep my cards as flat as possible for the sake of mailing.  I have some non traditional colors on this one...but it IS spring, which makes it near impossible for me to pull out traditional Christmas colored papers.  I think I've only managed 4 Christmas cards this year....but I'll continue trying.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

This meets the following challenges: Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Anything Christmas (option of trees), ABC Christmas Challenge: K for Keep it Simple, Christmas Crafts All Year 'Round: Anything Goes Christmas, and Crafts Galore Encore: Anything Goes.

Teacher Appreciation Treats

Hello.  Just a quick share today of the little treat bags made for the teachers and assistants at my girls' school.

Just a bag with a few Rolos, and the teacher bags contained gift cards, and the tag is Bugaboo Stamps Floral Tags 4.  I've been extremely busy lately but didn't want to skip teacher appreciation week.  The tags come with a blank center which makes them perfect for personalization.  So that is my share.  Thanks for stopping by for a look.

This meets the following challenges: Crafting From the Heart: Anything Goes, Crafting With Friends: Anything Goes, Creative Fingers: Anything Goes, and Simply Create Too: Anything But a Card.

Dottie Happy Birthday and Flowers

Hello all!  For the past week, we have hit temperatures in the 90's.  I've been waiting for this heat wave, and now we are officially in summer.  I know technically it's not summer time, but around here, once it hits 90, it's summer, and we don't dare venture outside between 11am and 7pm.

But on to today's share.  I made a card for this weeks Catch the Bug Challenge: Say it With Flowers.
I'm featuring Dottie Happy Birthday by Bugaboo Stamps.  I've always been a Dottie fan.
And somewhat of a fancy fold.  The little flower in the corner holds it shut.  Again, just trying to shake things up a bit.  So join in this week if you get a chance for the Say it With Flowers challenge.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Show Time Circus Birthday card

Hello all and Happy Monday!  School is almost over, so I've been super busy with all the things that come with year end.  Not only that, but softball is in full swing (LOL, full swing!  Oh how I amuse myself), and I've had to take on a little bit more responsibility with my dad.  What can I say?  I'm tired.  I'm really tired.  But I'm so blessed to be able to do what needs to be done.

Well, today I'm here to share a card I made for Bean's 11th birthday.  It seems I already made her a card this year!  The same thing happened last year.  So again, she will have 2 birthday cards for the year.  I'm tellin' ya, my mind is gone!

This card features the adorable Show Time digi by Mari Digis, and the #11 is to indicate my Baby's year - AND her softball number (great coincidence), cut with Cricut cart Plantin Schoolbook.  Plus, this is for the Corrosive Challenge Blog which is Anything Goes all month long!  Mari Digis is one of the sponsors, so I hope you get a chance to enter this super easy challenge.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek at my latest creation.

This also meets the following challenges: Dragonfly Journeys: Just Add Sequins, Crafting with Friends: Anything Goes, Watercooler Wednesday: Feminine Anything GoesPolkadoodles: Anything Goes, and Simply Papercrafts: Anything Goes.
