Isn't this card absolutely adorable?!?! I saw several versions of it while surfing the web, so when I saw it of course, I haaadd to make it! Well, of course I did not have the paticular dies or stamps I had seen used to make the flowers with; soooo after trying a flower stamp that I did have and cutting then all out, they really looked "flat"! So during my trip up to Va. the other day, (the closest place that has a Michael's, AC Moore, etc.) I found the most perfect flower die by Sizzix. It has three different flowers on the one die. So, that is what I used to create my flowers for this cute card with! Only the solid brown paper is by Close To My Heart, but I have not received my order as of yet. This card has an insert tag that the flowers are attatched to the top of that you can stamp or write a message on. I think it is the cutest thing. I am making one for my two sisters asap. :) The pic below is of the insert removed from the card.
Here is another card I recently made as well. It is a pop up card. When you pull on the sides of the card your message, or whatever you put on the pop out pops up!
Cute huh?? Okie dokie! Just wanted to share these toadally cute cards with ya!
Have a super day!

Whoa... what a past couple of weeks! Between everybody being sick, a family situation, Gage's 5th birthday party, and Mother's Day, I am finally making a new post.
I saw this cute pop-up card on you tube and thought I'd make it for my mom for Mother's Day.
So, here is how it turned out. Of course I used Close To My Heart papers and Stickease from the Unforgettable set. Hopefully I will be able to send in a order soon so I can get some new paper to play with.

This is a little card I made to go along with it so I could write a little message inside of it to my mom. I cut the little butterfly and the word Mother out with my Cricut.
Hope everyone had a blessed and happy Mother's Day! TTFN!

That was Toadally Awesome Fun!!!

My oldest grandson's birthday is next week, so I made him this really, really cute card! I found the instructional video by Stampin' Hands on you tube. This card was a little un-nerving to do for the first time but I bet, my soon to be next one, won't be! I just love the element of surprise this card gives to it's recipient. I used DCWV cardstock as well as paper from the Use 'Em for Anything paper stack from HOTP. The balloons and gators were from a sheet of stickers I had picked up some time ago from the Dollar Tree they turned out super great for this card, don't ya think?! I am ready right now to make another one!
This next card is one that I made for my oldest grandaughter, Banna Girl that is what I call her.

Her card is a called a spinner card because two pennies put together under the butterfly makes the butterfly spin and turn along the open path it is on.
Okie Dokie! If ya have questions you can post them over there in that little box, or you can leave them in the comment place right under this post. Maybe I will be getting a vid camera for "my" birthday later this month. Then I can make vids and post 'em here for you to follow.
Until next time, have a wonderful day!
