Hey Chick!



I usually post on Thursday but I just loved this card so much I had to share it today. The chick is from Cute Easter from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I made this as a thank you card for a great friend. How adorable and springy is this chick? (Is "springy" a word? You know what I mean.)

I LOVE this stripped paper. The best part is that I found it at HL in a clearance bin for $0.25. It was mixed into some Christmas stuff and I thought it would be a great break from the traditional Christmas colors. I never got around to using it at Christmas but I thought it just screamed to be paired up with this chick. Don't you think it works?

It might be hard to see in the photo but I created a polka dot background on the yellow panel using my white Fun Flock and 2-way glue. I wanted to add a little extra texture (and fuzziness) to the card. I hope this also qualifies for the EONAC challenge to get messy. I certainly made a big enough mess when doing it.

I ordered Photoshop for Dummies from amazon.com to help the Easter bunny out (from my Monday post). I can't wait to get my hands on that book. Thank you to all who sent me links to tutorials or offered up your assistance. It has been an extra crazy week here but I am sure I will be contacting you with my questions soon. I love the stamping/blogging community. Every one is so helpful!

Thank you for stopping by to look at my card and read my babble. I hope you have a fantastic day.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
