Eatin Watermelon

Hello and Happy Monday!  Almost the end of the month and I wanted to enter another House Mouse Challenge: Recycle/Re-use.
My re-use item is the card base.  I made this "fancy fold" around a year ago and it just didn't work out for what I was doing at the time.  I put it aside and forgot about it....until now.  The stamp was a little smaller than the rectangle, so I tried to fill in the space with die cuts.
I thought with the sentiment, this could easily be used for a birthday card.  I don't remember the name of this fold, but I'm sure I found it at Splitcoaststampers.  The House Mouse challenge lasts until February 4th should you want to join too.  Thanks for the visit and have a wonderful week!

This also meets the following challenges: Come and Get It: 3 or More LayersHeARTful Stamping: Anything Goes + A rubber Stamp, and Brown Sugar: Anything Goes.

Monkey Love Freebie

Hello and Happy Friday! Yay, I have made it to the weekend! Want to know what's cool about Fridays?  Bugaboo Stamps gives away a digistamp for free!  Here is a card featuring this weeks freebie Raggedy Critters Monkey:
Sprout wanted a sock I found Beanie's old monkey, washed it, sewed the cap back on, and voila, good as new!  So this is her Valentine's Day card this year.  I've been wanting to paper piece something for a while now, and thought this would be perfect.  I added a little banner, stamped with single letters from the Michael's $1 bin.  I'll let her have it on Valentine's Day, then it will disappear into her box of memories to be handed over when she's 18.  Anyway, that's it for today.  Don't forget to pick up your freebie!

FTH Bunny and Paper Play Sketch

Hello all and Happy Friday!  Today I'm sharing a card made for Valentine's Day.  I needed a couple more that aren't overly "lovey dovey," so I made a couple of these.  I also wanted to enter a new-to-me challenge at Paper Play Sketches (#31).
I'm featuring a freebie from From The Heart Stamps (also known as Designed 2 Delight)!  Bunnies are my absolute favorite animal.  I'm allergic to pretty much every animal out I no longer have any roaming my home.  Anyway, I don't usually send out many Valentine's, so I left it without sentiment and will hand write my well wishes inside.  That's it for me....I wish you a wonderful day and weekend!

House Mouse Lovin

Hello all and Happy Hump Day!  Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day Card.
I was able to use my new banner dies (I would make these with my cutter and scissors, but they were always lopsided, so I finally broke down and purchased the Sizzix set!).  I also thought I'd join a new challenge, the House Mouse challenge - since I'm always admiring Sue's Stamping Stuff's beautiful creations.  Hopefully this year will be a year of creation for me (as well as decluttering, quality time with girls, and continued healing).

Thank you for stopping by today!  This meets the following challenges: House Mouse Challenge: New/Anything Goes (I'm using a new die set), Crafty Creations: Anything Goes, and Through the Craft Room Door: Always Anything Goes.

Birthday Bird 2017 with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and happy 2017!!  Wow...I remember when I was young, thinking "I'll never make it to the year 2000."  Of course, I was still considerably young in 2000, but at the time, it just seemed so far away.

Some of my favorite questions from my kids:
When you were young, was everything in black and white? (after seeing a black and white movie)

I've been meaning to ask, what is that? (pointing to a telephone/landline jack in the wall)

How old were you when Jesus was born?

Why doesn't this phone work?  Answer: because that's a calculator.

Why didn't you get your first (cell) phone until you were in your 20's?!  Answer: because that's when they were invented (responding to 9 year old begging for her first cell phone).

What's a card catalog?

So how does it work? (looking at an old phone book)

Anyway, on to today's share.  Today at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, the year is starting off with an Anything Goes creation:
I'm starting my year with birthday cards!  I'm featuring the cute Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Bird.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin.  Again, the challenge is anything goes - super easy - so join in this week at Catch the Bug if you can!  I wish you all a very happy new year.  Thanks for stopping by.
