Warm Fuzzies

I am soooo ready for spring. I thought we were on our way. The robins and blue birds are back. Some of the trees are starting to bud. And then the temperatures dropped and *gasp* we even got a little bit more snow. I know, I know.... I should be used to it living in Wisconsin but what can I say? I was really hoping that winter was gone for awhile.

To remind myself that spring is right around the corner, I decided to make a card using some spring colors and this adorable caterpillar. I usually am not a big fan of caterpillars, but there is just something about this one that I love.





This little guy is no longer available in the Whimsy Store but you can find lots of other delightful rubber and digi stamps there.

I hope you have a wonderful week end. Thank you for stopping by.


Supplies:
  • Stamps: Warm Fuzzies from Bug Hugs Creations on Whimsy Stamps
  • Papers: Papertrey white & ripe avocado CS, My Mind's Eye Pretty Please papers
  • Inks: None
  • Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Lotus Border Petites, Big Scalloped Circles & Pose-Abilities Daisy Heads, Copic Markers
  • Embellishments: Hug Snug Seam Binding, misc felt (from Hobby Lobby), Memories Mist Merlot, Maya Mists pink mist

Cheryl...this card is SO cute!!! It's funny cause that's what my Mom tells me when I call her to "vent". She says, "I'm sorry you are having a bad day. It will be better tomorrow." I bet she's really trying to say, "Suck it up so I can hang up!" LOL

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…
