Monday with Lindsay - Inspired by Nature

Our theme this week for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is "inspired by nature" which was really easy and enjoyable for me. I tend to gravitate towards stamps with nature in them any how and Lindsay has a lot of stamp sets with birds, flowers, and leaves to work with.

When I sat down Thursday afternoon to start working on my card, my daughter also wanted to make a card. We both used the same image from Birds & Branches but our cards are totally different.

**Updated - This card made the top 5 in the Cupcake Craft Challenge.

The sentiment comes from a freebie from Lindsay's blog which was designed to coordinate with Birds & Branches.

This is my 8-year old daughter's card using the same image. I am so proud of her because she did EVERYTHING on this card except cut the card base and tie the knot in the floss in the button. She loves using my Big Shot and nesties. I think I might have to start watching my crafting supplies. :) She made this card to enter in Challenge #2 Buttons on Aimee's Challenge blog which encourages children to enter. I do not have a supplies list at the bottom of this post for her card because all the paper came from my scrap bin. (SU white CS for card base, image printed on GP CS)

Thank you for stopping by today. Please check to see how the rest of the DT was inspired by nature.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
