Spring has sprung!!

 Finally we are seeing signs of spring here in Virginia!!  I know everyone has had a long, cold winter and are ready for some warmer, dryer air!  I crafted like a wild woman this past weekend.  It was miserable outside and so I cleaned a little and crafted a lot!  I have been making cards for our school's Relay team to sell at school.  Tonight I thought I would show you a few.

I made this card obviously for Mother's Day using the new stamp from PTI called Doodlie Do.  The flowers were stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I stamped the two flowers in the corners before I used an embossing folder.  I used the matching dies to cut out the flower and leaves on the doily I added die cut letters that spell mom and a few sequins form Pretty Pink Posh were added.

This card was a CAS card that I simply stamped added a sentiment and threw on some enamel dots.  The stamp set was from a set I had gotten a long time ago from Martha Stewart and don't even know the name.  The sentiment is from PTI's stamp set Signature Greetings II.

One more clean and simple card.  Sentiment from set as above...Signature greetings and I am loving this corrugated paper!  I picked mine up at Joann Fabrics.  The stamp was also from an old Martha Stewart set.
Well I hope you are having some spring type weather where you are!  Hope to be back soon with a few more projects I've been working on.  Good night!

Happy Mother's Day

I have made a few cards to help raise money for Relay.  I sell them at school and all proceeds go to Relay.
I love this card as it is so feminine and bright.  The tag is from PTI and the sentiment is from Stampin Up as well as the pansy punch.  The other smaller punches are from my stash.  The ribbon is from Pretty Pink Posh!

The next thing I made was a "thank you" card set.  All materials are from Stampin Up.

They are calling for snow here again!!  I am so ready for spring!!  Where is it?  I hope it appears soon!!  :)

Wishing you a very Happy....


I have been making the box cards that you see on Pinterest!  I have fallen in love with them.  They come in all shapes and sizes and can be as creative as you wish!!  This card was made for a friend's mother I adore these colors and I love this paper from My Mind's Eye!

Once you've made one of these box cards, you are pretty hooked.  Then it all folds down nicely and fits in an envelope that I made especially for this card!  This box is larger that the others I have made and therefore, I had to make an envelope out of 12x12 paper.

This picture shows the colors more.   Love these spring colors!  Some items used are from Stampin Up.  The butterfly in the back is from Memory Box.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope Spring comes our way soon!  Please join my blog if you are visiting for the first time!  Have a great week!!
