Little Love Duck

Pin It

Happy Thursday!  It’s time for the new Meljen’s Designs challenge.  This week we have a super fun and super easy challenge for you – ANYTHING GOES!      

For my project this week I used the digital image Little Love Duck.    He is so cute and makes me think of spring.  Check out those cute rain boots. 

 

As is my habit lately, I made 2 of this card too.   Since they both are the same, I’ll save you from having to look at both.  1 is for my stash and 1 is for OWH or my daughter’s school fundraiser.

I got some good news this week.  I finally can return to working out.  (Insert  happy dance here!  or should I say insert a Jazzercise dance here?)  I had foot surgery at the end of September, got a stress fracture over the holidays, and then injured myself by tripping up the stairs.    I can finally go back to working out on a limited basis.  Hurray!  I am so happy to be heading back.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

What a cutie this is, Cheryl! Great combination of colors and papers, and that little duck is totally adorable. Great idea to make two of these to meet your crafting goals more easily -- I think I might have to take a page out of your book there! Thanks for sharing this with us at Tuesday Throwdown. I hope you'll join us again next week! :-)

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…
