In Like a Lion

Welcome to March! We have definitely had the wind here in East Texas, lemme tell ya. I don't know what's happening to me, but I suspect Texas is trying to turn me into a southerner again.

I can't seem to get warm. I love winter, though, so I'll fight and dig my heels in to keep from being dragged into summer too fast. I was daydreaming of summer when I made this card. The hummingbird stamp is from Inkadinkado, and if you look closely, you'll see that bird is made up of butterflies!

I paired it with my favorite vibrant raspberry Stampin' Up paper that I've hoarded since forever. I hope wherever you are, this brings you a little peek of spring and a warmer breeze.

Birthday Week

Hi all!

It's Kim here, again.

The end of February/ beginning of March means a lot of birthday cards.
My twins turn 16 this week! 
Also, my daughter's boyfriend turned 17 last week and she asked me to make him a card. 

I wanted something simple enough for a teenage boy, without any flair.

The above card is about as simple as it gets. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Hello

For today I pulled out this birdie I had from Unity Stamp Co which I haven't used.  I paired him with some great Webster's papers and a Unity Sentiment.

I decided to paper piece the bird as well which I think gives him some fun color.  

Are you pulling out your old stamps and papers and using them?  Let us know.

Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats Love Couple

Hey there friends!  Maria here this week with a few cards using some older images in my stash.

Today I have a wedding card themed one using an adorable image by Stamp Oasis.

Isn't this the cutest image?  The Congrats sentiment is by Unity Stamp Co.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy Valentine's Day!
For today I made this cute Valentine's card. I have had this stamp set in a drawer and have never inked any of the stamps until now, but I think that I will make a few more cards using that little cupid before I put this away.
Stamps, papers and ribbon are all from Stampin' Up, and so is the cute heart embossing folder.
We are celebrating Valentine's Day by having a dinner picked by the kids. Lucky for me they want french dip sandwiches, easy peasy, dinner is already cooking in the crock pot and the house smells great. I am off to bake some cupcakes, and hopefully craft a little during nap time today.

You make my heart Flutter

Hi, Eva here again with a card for you today. I apologize for the not so great picture, but it has been grey and dark here for a few days, and my 3 year old "fixed" my good camera,  now it does not work. So I am stuck with using an old camera that is not so good unless the lighting is great.

These stamps are from an older Kit of the Month from Unity.  I decided to try doing a chalkboard look for this card, sort of a new technique with my old stamps.The red polka dot paper is from PTI and has been in my stash for ages.
I am off to make some Valentine's for tomorrow, and do damage control so Vaughnie does not "fix" anything else around here :)

Thank You!

This week a friend asked me to help her make some thank you cards for her FRG group helpers. She wanted to be able to include a pack of gum, and here is the card I came up with for her.

I put a pack of hot chocolate in this one, since my house has two teenagers and we are always out of gum.

The military stamps have been in my stash for years, they are from from Art Declassified, and they were perfect for this card. Since my friends husband is in the artillery, I added the red ribbon for the artillery red color they use. Not sure where the camo paper came from, it has been in my stash for a very long time, and I was so happy to finally use it.
Happy Monday to everyone!
