Pumpkin Spice–For the Bride-to-be

Hello!  Today it’s my turn to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog.    Our challenge this week is FLOWERS!  We want to see what you make with flowers.  This should be an easy one!  

For my project, I decided to make a card for a bridal shower using papers and twine from Shop Pumpkin Spice



2013-05-22 PSS Flower bride card WM

Sadly, I wasn’t able to give my card to the bride.  After I finished taking my photos, I spilled my huge cup of water on my desk and the card was wrecked.   I hate when that happens! 


Don’t forget to link up your project at the Pumpkin Spice blog.


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Gorgeous card Cheryl! Too bad it was ruined. I'm so glad I always have a (closed) water bottle on my table. With several cats in the house, including a few that have no problem with jumping on tables, glasses of water are defintely accident prone. Of course, I could still spill any coffee or tea (fingers crossed this won't happen on a finished project). And I would hate to have to recreate the same card. Chances are it won't turn out as great as the first version (or maybe we only THINK it's not).

Beautiful card!

Beautiful card and so sweet I love the whole look.
Bummer on the water wrecking the card. I make sure any liquids I drink are in containers with a lid that I have to push something to get the coffee or water out. I had fears of that before happening so changed the containers.
I love your work. Stunning.

What a beautiful card, with coloring we mostly think of as seasonal, and yet not seasonal one tiny bit !! I LOVE IT! I have ruined many a card myself, but mostly when they have fallen on the floor and had the misfortune of being tramped upon 80 or 90 times ... lol So glad you joined us this week at The Kraft Journal for our Celebrations theme !

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
