simple birthday cards..

Made up these Bday cards for my stash. I used the Cricut Home Accents cartridge for the pear with BG designer paper. I wanted a clean fresh look so I used some Kraft Bazzill as my base.  They didn't turn out exactly as I envisioned them..but they will do ;0)  in a pinch. 

St. Patrick's Day cards..

 A couple more St. Patty's Day cards to share...trying to use up some scraps of the Rusty Pickle "Lucky" collection.  Images colored with Copics.  Have a great day!

St. Patty's day card...

Just a simple little St. Patty's day card..kept it simple so that I could mail it without much bulk. I did add some pearls to the scallop edge to add a little something, it was just too plain for me otherwise ;)  I'm not doing a very good job at keeping to my 365 goal this year, lol..I'm about 25 behind..haha..I better get busy!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

To be honest..I've never really had the patience for crocheting...I love the little crochet flowers, but mostly I hit my friend Linda up for those, lol..she's great at making them!  But as I was making this card I thought it needed a little something, something to go on top the heart...sooo...I crocheted this little round thing  to poke my pin in, ROFL..pitiful I know!  But at least I made an attempt, haha!  The Moda fabric was begging to be cut into a heart and that's what I did. The photograph is terrible I know..the lighting inside today isn't much to speak of...I apologize!

Crazy weather here in TN

Well, I had all these intentions to make up a few Valentines today...last minute, to get them in the mail to all my girlies..but sadly, the weather went crazy (yet again) and it started snowing (yet again).  Soo...hubby had to go in to work early to beat the big freeze, and I didn't get a thing accomplished! The weather has been really strange here in TN lately. It has snowed the last 4 weekends...up until then I can only remember 1 or 2 snows in the last 10 years!! What is going on here???! I do have one little Valentine to post tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Its a color challenge...

This week at ROP challenge blog its a color challenge. Pink, Brown, Cream..I love those colors together! So here is my card for this challenge. I have used this cutie little Tilda image that my friend Heidi gave me (Thanks Heidi!) She's colored with copics.  Butterflies were punched from text paper sprayed with Glimmer Mist..with a few pearls added.  The Mulberry rose I purchased from The Mulberry Bear, I absolutely love those flowers!!  All other items came from a  Making Memories kit..vintage finds. Wish I had more of the Adore Bingo cards, are they lovely!
