Funny Bunny Easter card

Hello and Good Friday to all.  So this weekend, after church, we are going to a farm to cuddle goats.  That's right!  Goats!  Baby goats.  I am so excited.  There will also be goat cheese sampling and an egg hunt for the kids.  Of course I'm probably allergic to the little baby goats, I'm pretty much allergic to everything, but I'm going to enjoy every sneeze and itchy eye.

Today I'm sharing a Bugaboo Stamp new release named Funny Bunny Babies on my Easter Card.


And guess what?  It's a bit of a fancy fold.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Everybunny set..
I saw something very similar on Pinterest.  The card IS straight, I just couldn't get the first photo straight.  Oh well.  I tried.  Anyway, I wish you all a very Happy Easter!

This meets the following challenges: Die Cuttin Divas: Easter, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, and Unicorn Challenge: Make it Girly.

Gardening Easter Bunny

Hello and happy Monday!  Today starts my girls' spring break.  Thank the Lord for Grandma, because I was not made to be a stay at home mom.  Don't get me wrong, I love my babies dearly, but spending an entire week with them would probably lead to lots of Mimosa drinking starting early in the morning!

So, for today, I'm sharing a card for this weeks Catch the Bug Challenge: Photo Inspiration (please click on link for photo).


I'm going with both gardening and colors, plus I needed another Easter card.  Bright spring colors on this one, featuring Bugaboo Stamps Garden Bunny, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Join in this week if you can!

This meets the following challenges: Crafty Cardmakers: Bunnies, Chicks, Eggs, Dragonfly Journeys: Bunnies, Chicks and Ducks, Pink Gem: Easter Time, and Crafty Animals: Anything Goes.

Easter Daffodils Card

Hello and happy hump day.  With the days being longer, it has me looking forward to spring.  I'm already clearing up my flower gardens and all my bulbs are popping up.  I live in a desert with lots of sand, but my bulbs manage to flourish each year, producing new "baby" bulbs.  Every couple of years, I have to thin them out and either find a new spot or give them away.

Some of my early blooms are daffodils which inspired this Easter card.


I've used Cricut cart Walk in my Garden and the sentiment is Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  This is also in attempt at using my Cricut more often this year - and I feel I'm off to a pretty good start, plus I wanted to enter this weeks Bitten by the Bug challenge: Easter.  So that's it for today.  Thank you for stopping by!

This also meets the following challenges: Cardztv: Anything Goes, Shopping Our Stash: Here Comes Peter Cottontail, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.

Spring Flowers Easter Card

Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Today, family will be over for shepherd's pie, soda bread, and green sherbet floats.  I'm not Irish, but my kids are (half) so we learn a little in a fun way, and try to celebrate the best I know how.  Thank the Lord for Pinterest!

Today I'm sharing a card for the current Catch the Bug Blog Challenge: Bingo (please click link for Bingo board).


I created an Easter card using Bugaboo Image/Flower/Stripes on the Bingo board.  I'm using a cute little lady bug and flower image from Bugaboo Stamps, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  This one is totally spring!  Anyway, join in if you can this week!

This meets the following challenges: Creative Craft Cottage: Make it Feminine, Let's Craft and Create: Anything Goes + Easter, Love to Craft: Anything Goes, and Sweet Stampers: Spring or Easter.

Everybunny Fancy Fold Easter Card

Hello all! It's Hump Day, so that means dinner with my Dad.  He's already 82 years old and I visit two to three days a week.  We have dinner, I take him shopping, and I clean up his little house.  Dinner nights are my favorite!

But now to share my latest creation.  I've been trying to be a little more creative by either using my Cricut, using a stamp set, or creating a fancy fold.  And this one has all three!!


This uses Stampin' Up's Everybunny set.  I've had it for years now and this is the very first time I have inked it up.  There are several adorable images in this set, but I've been so hooked on digi stamps, that I've neglected my rubber/acrylic stamps.
This is also a Double Z fold.  So I was quite proud to make a fancy fold on this one.  I love how it stands up so beautifully.  And to fill a little of the white space, I added a couple clouds from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cart.
View from the top just to show the dimension a little better.  So that's my share for the day.  Thanks for taking a peek.

This meets the following challenges: Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, 2 Crafty Critter Crazies: Anything with a Critter, Watercooler Wednesday: All About Occasions, and Cardz TV Challenge #38: Anything Goes.

Whale of a Birthday Card

Hello and happy Saturday.  Softball has started up and that means Bean is keeping super busy.  I love softball season, but I must admit, it can be a little hard on us all.  She's not the most athletic, but she's a real go-getter, so as long as she wants to play, I will be sitting in those stands praying for a good play.

Today I would like to share a card for the latest Catch the Bug Challenge: Natures Wonders - All Creatures Big and Small.




I instantly thought of the sea, large whales and little fish. I was watching Finding Dory at the time of inspiration, but I'm sure that's just coincidence.  I'm featuring a Bugaboo Stamp set that isn't currently in the store, but hopefully will be added soon.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up's Short & Sweet.  So play along if you get a chance this week.

This meets the following challenges: Crafting With Friends: Anything Goes, Crafty Catz: Anything Goes with Layer it Up, Simply Papercraft: Anything Goes, and Crafting With and Attitude: Anything Goes.

Easter Girl in Window

Hello and wow it's already March! The wind has been kicking up every allergen known to man and I do believe every single speck of pollen is attacking me.  February was a rough month of colds and misery, but I have high hopes for March.

So today I'm sharing a card for the current Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.



I'm featuring a cute little digi from Kinda Cute Stamps called Girl at the Window.  The image is actually popped up, so there's a bit of dimension going on in my scene.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I tried my best to make this spring-like since I need Easter cards, so hopefully it works.

Please join Corrosive Challenges in this long month Anything Goes challenge for a chance to win digis from a couple of great sponsors.  And thanks for stopping by!

This meets the following challenges: Crafty Friends Challenge: Springtime, A Perfect Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Crafts Galore Encore: Anything Goes, Digistamps4Joy: Anything Goes or Being Young, and Papercraft Business: Anything Goes + Easter.

I'm featuring the adorable Bugaboo Stamps Ornaments Penguin.  Yes, my colors are a little bright, so hopefully it works.  I guess I'm just excited about spring and not wanting to pull out traditional Christmas colors.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  So play along if you can in this super easy challenge for a chance to win Bugaboo Stamps.
