Mojo Monday 132

Wow!  Round or Square for Mojo Monday 132?  Couldn't decide for the longest time - hate when that happens!  Take a look at the sketch below and then take a peek at my card further down.  What do you think?

So after making that difficult decision on Round or Square this is what I decided I would do.  I guess I was feeling the round more.  I think it came out cute!  

Materials used were DCWV/Brights, Glitter and Citrus stacks for the plain and patterned papers.  White scallop is paper from Staples.  Sentiment is PTI, used cricut for the scallop and circle cuts.  Ribbon was some I had in my stash.  The flower cut outs are from the cute pattern paper underneath the stamped sentiment.  It's hard to tell but I used pop dots on the flowers to make them stand off the sentiment tag.

Bunny Box / Easter Gifts

Isn't this so cute?  What is it you ask?  It's a Bunny Box I created.  I plan on using this for Easter candy/gifts.  I used my Bic Markers and PTI vintage touch to give the bunny a soft antique look.  Oh - almost forgot added a cotton ball for his tail.

Here is the back side of the bunny box.  It measure just over 2 1/2 inches wide and 1 inch high.  I will be able to add Easter candy or a cute pair of earrings for a cute gift.

I've added some straw and a few pieces of candy.  I think a few friends will be getting these for Easter.

Moxie Fab World presents Tuesday's Trigger

This week's Tuesday Trigger is brought to us by Jaclyn Miller.   Jaclyn said her daughter wore this for Easter last year.  So cute!  So reminds me of spring!  How about you?

I love the details on this cute dress - Butterfly, Bow, Flowers and the colors are just perfect for a spring day!  I decided on doing a card for this challenge but wasn't sure when I was going to get to it.  Well how about last night!  Nothing like last minute!  I do like the way it came out and I really like the large butterfly I did.

Paper is from DCWV/Brights &  / K&Company/Hopscotch, Butterfly stamp/Inkadinkado, Sentiment stamp / PTI, Flower cut with Cricut, Button, Ribbon and Vintage lace in my stash of goodies!

The Play Date Cafe #22

Thanks to everyone for such sweet comments!  You guys rock!

I was invited over to The Play Date Cafe  by Julie Ranae.  Thanks Julie!  Here is the latest challenge - Fun stuff!

So to get started I went looking for paper and found some I thought looked good in the DCWV/Flower Shower and the Neutrals stack.   I then cut a few flowers using my cricut.  I thought the flowers needed something so off I went in search of some buttons - yea! found some in my stash that looked good.  The  sentiment is from PTI.  I like the way it came out!  (Excuse the colors on this photo the light blue is not showing up well on the card.)

Mojo Monday 131

So I decided to play in the Mojo Monday Challenge after seeing this sketch created by Sarah Bigelow. I thought this would be a fun challenge!

I rarely make a long card and I think that's what caught my eye with this sketch.  So here is what I created for this Mojo Monday131.  What do you think?

I used PTI kraft paper for my base, patterned paper from Flower Shower / DCWV , cricut for my flowers and cute little bee stamp from Michael's.

Tuesday's Trigger

Isn't this a great chair and that pillow - pops! This is the inspiration over at the Moxie Fab World for the Tuesday's Trigger. This weeks challenge pick came from Carolyn King - Thanks Carolyn love this challenge!

I had laid out my PTI kraft paper, sentiment stamp, DCWV Citrus matstock, accent cartridge, brads. I was all ready to start this card this weekend - but I did not find the time since we were also working on the deck and that took a little longer than I thought it would. So I started this card the moment my feet hit the floor this morning. I like the way it turned out!

Crafting/Quilting = Inspiration

I have mentioned my mother-in-law (Susan) on a previous post and how she is so talented in quilting/sewing (among other things). Well this is a table runner she made for me - beautiful isn't it! I love the design and the colors! How would you incorporate this into a card? I'll have to think about that one - LOL.

Take a look at this wall hanging! I love this piece!! I would definitely like to use this design and/or colors in a card or a wall hanging of my own. I love the way she hung this on the wall with that cute little star hanger! I'm very lucky to have such a talented mother-in-law! You never know where your inspirations will come from! Maybe these will inspire you as well! I'm off to create something myself!

Diggin' on Doilies & Lace - added one more card!

Well I am really loving this challenge! Here is another card I created using a doily and some lace and a sweet little sentiment. I'm having way to much fun! How about you?

Well I made one more card for Diggin on Doilies & Lace.
I added lace to the butterfly wings along with the lace flower. The silver cardstock is embossed with a floral motif which motivated me to use the sentiment from PTI.

Diggin' on Doilies & Lace

I figured I would take the challenge over at Moxie Fab World from Cath our friendly neighborhood creative editor! This is the "Diggin' on Doilies & Lace". This will be loads of fun for me! I have a card that I did over the weekend that I think works for this challenge. Check it out below.

I used a doily over a band of vintage lace from my DH's grandmother - a stash she had in her old singer sewing machine, which I was lucky enough to inherit. I used Crepe paper and a button with a pretty pink bow on top. A very simple sentiment below a larger bow. Enjoy!

Tuesday's Trigger

Tuesday's Trigger for March

Isn't this just lovely - lots of summer color - what a great Tuesday's Trigger from Kim Wilson. Check out the Moxie Fab World and Cath our friendly neighborhood creative editor. Thanks Cath!

My Take on Tuesday's Trigger

I loved the color combo and the stamped sentiment I used is from papertrey ink. The basket and flowers I created with my cricut. I had a fun time making this card. Enjoy!
