Sending Sweet Hugs

Today’s project is truly a testament to how many different products from a variety of companies can mesh to create a pretty card.  The card base is SU Baja Breeze (remember that one?!).  The pretty coordinating patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn’s Flower Market 6 x 6 paper pad.  The petite daisies were cut from Honey Bee’s Spring Bouquet dies.  The ribbon is retired SU and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant’s Paola’s Wishes stamp set.  

I’m on a mission to spend less on craft supplies and use what I’ve already purchased. Although I’m sure there will be some new “must haves”, I’m also finding it so satisfying using many products that were “must haves”!

The inspiration for today’s card came from the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #161

I chose the second row across:  Bow, Blue, Stripes as well as the first column down:  Layers, Bow, Floral

Thanks for stopping in today…I wish you a wonderful week ahead!


Mother’s Day Gift Set

Hi there!  It’s been a little while since I shared a project.  Sometimes life just seems to happen all at once and there have been a few happenings in my somewhat quiet life…some really good and some a little troublesome but nothing that God didn’t take care of and made well again.  

Today, I’m sharing (a little late) a sweet Mother’s Day gift I created for my daughter, Emily.  Emily’s a 5th Grade teacher along with being the Administrator for a summer camp for blind children.  This Momma is truly our hero.  She’s so strong and fiercely dedicated to these two adorable little boys.

For the card, I used Spellbinders April 2021 Large Die of the Month, Universal Curved Border Dies for the flowers.  The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn’s Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set.  I embellished the purchased frame to coordinate with the card.

I’m playing along with the Tic Tac Toe #160 challenge...

I chose the third row across: Die Cut, Leaves, Pearls

Thanks for stopping by today.  It’s a spectacular spring day here in PA and I’m off to the nursery for more flowers.  I hope your day is just as enjoyable.



Sweet Missing You Card

Sharing this sweet little missing you card today.  Even though I’m lucky enough to see my two adorable grandsons, Jack & Luke on a regular basis, I still like to pop a card in the mail to them to let them know that Nanny is always thinking about them!  The Somebunny to Love set (MFT) is perfect for such a card. The Balmy Blue (SU) card base is embossed with a retired SU embossing folder.  I created a few ink blended clouds for the sleeping bunny to float on. He was colored with copics, while his quilt was paper pieced using a MFT Plaid paper pack.  

I added a few more clouds along a few more stamped images from this set.

I’m playing along with the My Favorite Things Wednesday Challenge

Simple Embossed Sympathy Card

I have a clean and simple sympathy card to share today.  I think sympathy cards need to be “quiet” and peaceful and that’s what I tried to achieve with this card.  I had this beautiful embossed frame embossing folder in my stash for a very long time but never used it before this.  It created such a pretty backdrop for the floral panel.  This floral pattern came in the Simon Says March Kit, Hoppy Days.  I absolutely love it and I’m currently on the hunt for more.  I adhered it to a piece of Fresh Fig (retired SU) card stock and used foam tape to adhere it to the center of the embossed panel for a bit of dimension.  The sentiment is heat embossed.  Lastly, I added a gold embossed butterfly.

And here’s a peek at the inside…

The inspiration for this card came from the Freshly Made Sketches #532 Challenge

Once again, thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
