Paper Roses.....

Do you remember that song from Marie Osmond? I know, I know, I am probably aging myself but every time I see all the paper roses every one is making on their projects, this song runs through my head. Well, at least this one lyric does. I really don't remember the rest of the song. I only remember hearing it play on the radio in the kitchen while my mom was cooking breakfast when I was a kid. So after watching this video by Lollychops I thought I would try my hand. I know a lot of other tutorials on making these are out there in blog land, but I found this one the most useful.







The theme this week on the Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog is "Get Well". I took the opportunity to make a get well card for my boss who is on medical leave. I hope this will brighten her day a little bit.

And here is a look at the inside.




I hope you will join in on our Get Well challenge. Stop by the Sentimental Sunday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT is up to and pick up your free digital sentiment set.



Enjoy your 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…
