You're So Tweet

I have had this image printed and sitting on my desk for a few weeks. I loved it the second I saw it but I just haven't had time to sit down and color it. So finally, over the long holiday week end, I was able to pull it out and make a card with it.





Aren't these birds cute? Originally the sentiment was supposed to say "Home Tweet Home" so I could sent it to my aunt and uncle who just bought a new home. Well, I don't have a craft area. So right when I was in the middle of "crafting" I had to clean off an spot on the kitchen table so I could give my daughter lunch. When I went back to my card, I could not find the sentiment. I tore everything apart looking for it but could not find it. My hubby even looked in the garbage for me. (Isn't he sweet? I gave him a kiss for that....after he washed his hands....and showered in Lysol....) I still couldn't find it so I went with "You're So Tweet!". Of couse when I was cleaning up when I finished the card, I found the sentiment stamp in my button container. Grrrrr... At least it wasn't lost for good.

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…
