Birthday Snail

Hello and Happy Friday.  What makes today especially happy is this weeks Freebie Friday digi at Bugaboo Stamps.  I used the stamp to make an MTC cut file for my card:
REAL snails are not my cup of tea, but cute snails with fancy shells and a hat with a flower are just adorable.  She is going to Bean for her upcoming 5th Birthday!  Yup, my "baby" is going to be 5!!   The little tag sentiment is Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes tied with twine.
Don't forget your freebie!  And thanks so much for stopping by.

Love and Mom

Hello all and Happy Tuesday. Today I have two cards to share:

The first is "Mouse Love" that uses the incredibly cute Valentine's Basket Mouse and lots of distressing:
This week, Bugaboo is sponsoring the challenge at Digital Tuesday: DISTRESSED. I also used Cricut Cart Mickey Font (at 1" in both regular and shadow) and distressed the letters.

This also meets the following challenges:
My next card features a new release at Bugaboo Stamps. I printed this out on Kraft from PTI and then again in yellow and paper pieced. The top portion is colored with Prisma Pencils which show up really well on kraft.
And guess what? I crocheted the purple flower myself! While I was home with Sprout, my Ma came over everyday and she brought me a hook and yarn and taught me the basics. Yet another reason I'm grateful for my Ma! BTW - there is a lot more inspiration using this new release at Catch the Bug.

Woof ATC

Hello and Happy Easter weekend! Today, the new challenge at Catch the Bug is:

So I'm sharing an ATC using Rottweiler Puppy - Hello (you've probably seen him before because he's one of my favorite Bugaboo images)

I made 10 of these little cards for my swap group. Again, if you have not made an ATC, I encourage you to give it a try. I was a little hesitant at first, but now I'm having a good time making and trading them!

Happy Easter to you all! Unfortunately, Sprout and I have been sick for a week now but hopefully we won't miss Bean's egg hunt! I thank you so much for visiting and have a blessed weekend.

Bunny Hug ATC

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Today I'd like to share my latest ATC using the adorable Easter Bunny Egg Hug from Just Some Lines. I made 10 of these for the ATC swap group I'm in. The monthly trades are so fun and I'm glad to be part of the group.
If you've never made an ATC, there is a good tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. They are little pieces of "art" that are to be traded and never sold.

Of course I must share an upclose of the love he has for his egg.
Thanks so much for joining me and hope your schedule allows you to complete all your Easter crafts and creations!

This meets the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers - Easter
Hookedoncrafts - Easter
Wicked Wednesday - Easter ATC
