Birdhouse In Your Soul

I have another sweet Whimsy & Stars Studio image to share with you too. This little cutie, Bird House Girly, is just perfect for spring. I especially love her because I enjoy feeding and watching our local birds.


Pin It

Once again, I made 2 cards. One for my stash and one for OWH or my daughter’s schools fundraiser. They use the same design but the papers and embellishments are a little different.

While I was working on my cards, this song kept running through my head. Since it was such a long time since I heard this song, I thought I would share it on Marcea’s blog for Music Saves My Soul.

Just too cute Cheryl!! My husband and I love watching the birds at the feeder, too. Seems like they're scarce this winter though, for some strange reason. We have hardly seen any animals except squirrels, despite the warmer than usual winter we're having.

These are so adorable Cheryl. Fabulous coloring and papers. Love the little heart embellishment and the twine behind the button looks amazing.
Great cards! I love your layout and your coloring. Thanks so much for playing in the Have a Heart challenge at Squigglefly this week. Cheers, Holley

I just have to ask, in that Music Saves the soul image, is that girl a digi stamp, rubber stamp? she's terrific! Can you tell me what company or artist she is from? htondre@aol.com. Thanks so much.

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…
