Love of My Life

Hello everyone!
  I'm still in the midst of purging and re-arranging(again) my craft space, but thought I would stop and post this simple card for you. I made this a couple of weeks ago at a weekend crop. I have an anniversary coming soon and thought this would be perfect! Of course, having this new WOTG card kit didn't hurt either. I just loved the sentiment to begin with and then the wheels started turning! I think the "enabler" will get a kick out of it! Thanks for taking time out of your day to peek in on me, and I hope you like what you see!

 Supplies- CTMH: "Lollydoodle" WOTG card kit (papers,sequins and sentiment), Teal shimmer trim is from the "Cloud Nine" kit. Inside: ketchup bottle from,  Cricut "Block Party" cartridge , french fries and container  hand drawn and fussy cut.

Happy Spring!

Hey Ya'll!
   Just thought I would pop in to wish everyone a Happy Spring and to show you the wreath I made for my Daughter to go on her door.I recently made a wreath from a kit I purchased from Stampin' Up, and my daughter liked it so much she wanted me to make her one.She purchased a wreath form from Michaels and I used papers and ribbon from my stash(which I'm still purging, I keep finding stuff I forgot I had!) and this is what I came up with!


     I used fringe scissors for the "fluffy" flowers cut out some circles to form the large flowers and cut out a few leaves and some large spikey bases for another flower. Then I punched out some spikey small flowers for the centers. All in all it turned out better than I thought it would. Here's a picture of the S.U. wreath I used for inspiration. I used feathers instead of leaves.

Supplies- S.U.: Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit as the inspiration piece,  Stamped feathers: CTMH "Feathers" Seasons and Nature.
My wreath- CTMH: Burlap ribbon, Large Spikey flower: Cricut cart "Mother's Day Bouquet", Fringe Flowers: Martha Stewart fringe scissors, Leaves: Sizzix Thinlet "Branch w/ Leaves #3" Flower centers: Fiskars punch, Buttons from my stash.

Feel Better

Hello everyone!
  My goodness, I didn't realize I had been away so long! I have been under the weather a bit, but still trying to keep busy. I got the idea for this card from a Stampin' Up demonstrator. It's quick and easy, and is basically a reverse gate fold card. The back middle panel has been matted and stamped with a sentiment. I used some retired paper from Close To My Heart and a new stamp and punch bundle from S.U. When I made this card, my annual "change of the season lots of pollen in the air allergies" had kicked in and I suppose I was trying to make myself feel better. I guess it worked! I have been busy purging and organizing (spring cleaning) and card making....... I hope at least some of you are experiencing this wonderful spring weather. Thanks for dropping by!
 Supplies-  CTMH: Retired paper "Dreamin'", S.U.: Flowers "Petite Petals" bundle, Sentiment "Sassy Salutations", Labels "Oval" Framelits.
