OWH Blog Tour / Happy Bird-day!


I am going to try to keep this post short and sweet. I know there are a lot of stops on the blog tour and you wouldn't want to miss any of the eye candy. Please stop back on Sunday for another OWH blog tour project and I will have a free digital download from Raindrop Echo Designs.
.
The theme for this OWH blog hop is "Birthday". I just had to use this image from Pink Cat Studios which has been begging me to color it.


What is a birthday with out gifts? I am offering a little blog candy for one lucky person. Included is a set of Critters 'n Treats clear stamps from BasicGrey and a package of Making Memories Red/Denim ribbon and ribbon brads. These are perfect for making summer cards and projects. For your chance to win, please sign up as a follower (if you are not already) and leave your name/blog in the linky widget at the bottom. I will mail any where in the United States. I will use random.org to pick a name during the evening of Monday, July 5th. The winner will be announced at that time and the winner will have 72 hours to contact me before I pick a new winner. **EDITED: I am so excited that I have 150 followers. I am going to throw in some additional goodies into the blog candy. **






Remember to stop by the OWH Stars & Stripes blog and forum too. There is fun chit-chat and games in the forum with the chance for some prizes. I also believe you can jump in on the tour and link up your birthday themed project. See the OWH S&S blog for details.


Thank you for hopping by! Have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July holiday week end! Please stop by on Sunday to see my 2nd post for the blog tour. I will have a free download for you from Raindrop Echo Designs.

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…
