Hello, Sunshine!

Kim Heggins
is our Guest Featured Artist 

Hi there! We have darling new tag inspiration from; Kim, today!
I chose a turtle in place of Kim's darling bear and stayed with most of the colors and layout.

The grass is cut from the Lawn Fawn Cupcake wrapper negative. I cut so many liners for Easter(30) 
and kept the negatives, to use for grass on tags and card in a box, that I have been making.

Thanks for the visit today!

Last Minute Pom Pom Bunnies

Hi there, hopping in with a last minute Easter project I started last night. I saw some pom pom bunnies on Pinterest, I had to make some. I tied the head to the body with the string I used to tie the knot. I hot glued the tail, ears, eyes and hand cut silly mouth( I was in a hurry and should have been cleaning windows). The felt is from Papertrey Ink and The Felt Pod.

 You can hand cut your ears but since I have the plush bunny from memory box I used the ears from that! 
These are so cute in person, I think the younger grandkids are going to love them! I wish I saw these earlier, you can make cute chicks too!

God Bless you!

Papertrey Ink

Hi there! Quick card for the CAWU over at Papertrey Ink .

Muse  by  Tracey I used all the colors that
 I was inspired by; Betsy Veldman's card .

I used some images from ; Bitty Bouquets that were already stamped and cut. I layered the frame( 4 times) with ; Backer's Dozen and embossed with; Woodgrain Impression Plate, layered on top of; Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection ( 9)
 It's hard to see but I do have a clear peace of card stock on the top layer.
 We had a great weekend, hope you did too! 
We planted our simple raised bed garden by the pool yesterday and now all we want to do is sit by the pool morning noon and night. Each garden bed has it own lavender topiary plant.... so pretty!

  Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Papertrey Ink 's

Good morning! Just a quick tag that is going on top of a 6 1/2 foot inflatable pineapple pool, raft . I wanted to welcome family friends visiting from South Africa.

 Ashly shows how you can curve straight sentiments . I do this quite often. I do it a bit differently.  What works best for me, is to place the stamp on top of the acrylic block near where I want it then just turn it over.

I used Winter Hills Stamp Set for the welcome,Som e Like it Hot Stamp Set and  Tag Sale: Quilted Die

Thanks for the visit!

I stamped my background  using my favorite wood stamp: Barnwood Background, then stamped my flower on top then heat embossed. I colored it in with my Zig pens.

God bless!

March 2017 Blog Hop
Hi there ! I was thinking maybe Papertrey Ink was not going to do the hop anymore,but I remembered reading that they were. Somehow I missed the photo! Well, as soon as I got the Papertrey Ink email, I went into the craft room. I had my Folk art set out because when my carrot box die arrives, I am hoping to use it as a topper ( like the one Betsy made with the kit that sold out HERE )  

I stamped the image in a very light color, used my Zig pens and a watercolor pen to quickly color in the image. I layered the die 4 times . I mostly stayed with the colors in the photo with the bird in it. I used Botanical Silhouettes for my sentiment, Fancy Folk Art Stamp Set and the note card die from Make It Mark Writeet Kit: Don't Forget to write all from Papertrey Ink 

 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see what everyone made for the hop. 

Thank you and God Bless!
