Dreams

Hi Everyone! Another quick post today for our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges.

It's been so busy with work and my son ill again (an infection in his finger this time and some visits to the doctor and chiropracter to help with a gait issue) that it's amazing I've had time to craft this week!

Our challenge is Clean and Simple also known as CAS.  This is a challenge to use less and less embellishments and papers on your project.  The least amount the better.  This is always a challenge for me because I love to embellish.  However, I am thrilled with how this card turned out.  I used a sketch in the March/April issue of Papercrafts magazine  and its just a fabulous one.

I just used a couple of scraps of paper in my basket and the butterflies were sent to me in a swap.  They were regular corrugated cardboard and I misted them with my smooch spritzes!  The pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is K Andrew Designs

I hope you like it.  Please stop by the blog to see the other DT creations and also to join in on the challenge this week.

Happy Crafting and Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Waiting on you


Good morning!  I think Spring may actually be poking through now.  It has been the longest winter ever!

With Mother's Day fast approaching here in North America, our theme Flowers for Mom is what's up this week at Use it Tuesday.  A time to celebrate those women in our lives who were the big influence.   Maybe it wasn't your mom, but your grandma, or perhaps an aunt or any other female who was like a Mother to you.

I have a layout for you today that highlights my pregnancy with Riley and how crazy I was waiting for him to come out.  In case you didn't know he was 41+4 when I finally went into labour.  I felt like I was pregnant forever!!!

That's my belly a couple weeks or so before he was born and then a pic of him a couple of days old!  All the product is from my stash, so I'm not entirely sure I know where they came from.  I hope that you enjoy the layout and please stop by the blog to see the other gorgeous projects the DT created this week.

Rainbows




Happy Friday everyone! The ending of another week..woohooo!!  We have a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges.  It's all about Rainbows.  You can have an actual rainbow, rainbow colors or however you wish to interpret it as long as we can see how the rainbow is represented in your project.

Here's the fun card I made this week.




I used a big background stamp for the image and stamped each line in a different color of the rainbow.  The ribbon is American Crafts and the sentiment is just from my stash.  A really simple yet (I think) pretty card.

Make you stop by the blog and check out the other DT inspiration for you this week and to join in our challenge.

Entered into these challenges:

Baffies Kreativladen: April weather
Fab n Funky: spring colors
Papercraft Star: use a stamp

Make my Monday: create your own background
Crafting when we can: name that tune (inspired by somewhere over the rainbow)

A sticky challenge


Happy Tuesday everyone!  It has been a long week in my house as my son has been sick again.  He just got over his ear infection and then he got hand/foot/mouth disease.  He's been cooped up inside for awhile now and he's going stir crazy and so is his mama! :)

We have a great new challenge for you at Use It Tuesday this week.  It's a Sticky situation when we want you to use the sticky parts of your stash...those rub-ons (oh do I have a lot of those), embossing powders and stickers (everyone has some in their stash, I know it!)..or anything else that sticks....

I created this card using some Glubbers...I bought them 2 years ago when they first came out and never once used them!  I also used a couple of different rub ons for this card in the sentiment and the little stitches.  I also broke out my glue gun and used it to adhere the bling to the flower! I'm now using my glue gun for EVERYTHING! LOL

The DP is the last of my MME All Spice 6x6 pack.  Another one bites the dust...I am so happy I am finally using them up!   The ribbon and the bling flower are from my stash as well.  I got the sketch and dimensions for this card from Andrea Walford's blog .  Every week she comes out with a great sketch that is easy to do and has step by step instruction.  Love them!  Thanks Andrea!

Make sure you stop by the UIT blog to see the wicked inspiration we have for you this week.  There are some great sticky bits in our stashes this week. :)
