Tractor Birthday

Hi and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I don't have a St. Patrick's card or treat to share with's been forever since I have been crafty, so this may be it for awhile. :)))) I do miss having time to make those things.

Even being a Mom of a boy, those boy cards are a challenge for me.

I started this card by trimming and piecing together patterned papers from my scrap stack and adhering to the framed cardstock base.  I then took a length of baker's twine and wrapped it vertically around the card front and tied in a bow at the top of the card.

A Small Glassine Bag was added to the front ready to be decorated. I used the Cricut Cartridge Boys Will be Boys to cut the tractor. I added two silver sequins to the tires for an added decorative touch. I stamped a Happy Birthday Sentiment (My Creative Time) in a cloud.  Lastly, the gift card was added and ready for the giving.

I don't know what it is, but I just love the above photo and colors. I know I am aching for warmer weather and summer. 

I did come across this last night. This is my little guy 10 years ago....sigh...where does the time go?

10th Birthday Card


{I am honored that this card was chosen as one of the "Sweet Seven" on 3/19/17 at  Cupcake Inspirations}

So I don't know about you, but we are having some lovely burst of winter weather right before spring. {Not a fan}.

Don't get too excited, but I have a card to share again. :))))

 I started this card by using a gray card base and adding a pink polk-a-dot patterned paper to the base.  In the lower right corner I stamped a Happy Birthday greeting from My Creative Time.  I die-cut a frame from white card stock with a die from the 4x4 Journal Die set at My Creative Time. I stamped Decorative butterflies from DeNami Designs to the frame in pink and green ink.  In the center of the frame a green polk-a-dot chipboard was added with a die-cut 10th in gray (My Creative Time).

For visual interest, green patterned paper was added just above the greeting. A length of white seam binding was wrapped around the card front embellished with Limeade Trendy Twine and a gray paper flower dressed up with a pink button brad. Lastly, sequins were added throughout for further embellishing.

I am going to share in the fun at Cupcake Inspirations

City Crafter Challenge. The butterflies and the spring green.
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

May You find Peace and Love in the Memories you Cherish

Hi and Happy Monday!

I am not even sure anyone will even see this as it's been ages since I have signed on to this blog and months since I had stepped foot in my crafty space.  I just stated the other day I miss crafting. Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card, and I just didn't want to buy an impersonal one. I never make these ahead of time because I don't want to have to ever need one I guess.

It felt good to get crafty again, but boy am I rusty!
I started this card by using a Kraft base which I adhered polka dot patterned paper to a piece of blue cardstock which I distressed. 
I then wrapped a length of gold textured ribbon horizontally around the card front and tied a fluffy bow which I embellished with an aqua flower centered with a silver heart. 

A tag was cut and layered from patterned paper and adhered to the right edge of the card. Silver and White Twine were added to the top of the tag. The frame was stamped in Aqua Mist ink and the sentiment (My Craft Spot) was stamped in Jet Black Ink in the center.

Lastly, the butterfly was stamped and gold-embossed on vellum and hand cut.  Gold and silver sequins were scattered throughout to complete the card.
