A Couple Papertrey Ink Cards

For this card I used Making Memories journal Paper I love using them on cards. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink I will get back to you on the name of the set it's full of great sentiments. The butterfly is a new Spellbinder's die I just got I love it it is pretty.

I'm so proud of myself for using my Basic Grey Paper that I kept on saving and not using. I have to admit I do way to much collecting and not enough using of paper. I knew this stamp set from Papertrey Ink would go good with this paper. If you like Bees and all the sayings that go with them then you will love this set so cute. I think it's called Honey Bees I will double check on that. TFL.

Here is another card using the same stamp set the name of the stamp set is called Spunky Nature. I HAVE THREE OF THESE CUTE SETS AND CAN'T WAIT TO INK THEM UP AND SHARE MY CREATIONS WITH YOU.

I used my Martha Stewart border punch for this card along the bottom of the sentiment.

Challenges For Unity

There are two challenges for HIP HOP THURSDAY over at splitcoast so I decided last minute to give it a try. Challenge one was to make a card for any occasion so I thought the tree would be perfect with the smile sentiment tag. Can you see the little birdie in the tree? I also added dimension by cutting up some grass.

Second challenge use stamps or anything else that has to do with nature and this is what I came up with I used this cute rainbow and cloud from March KOTM from Unity. Hope you enjoyed can't wait to check what everyone else came up with.

Floral Friends and HIP HOP THURSDAY

This card is made with Unity's Set called Floral Friends comes in a set with three different flowers very cute. I paper pieced the flower and used dimentionals to pop it up off the paper. The DP I used is from My Mind's Eye sorry I don't know the name of the collection. It's not my favorite card do you have days like that sometimes where you make a card and your like it's ok not the greatest? Thanks for stopping.

Simple Things Small Joys

My friend gave me this cute little tin and this is what I came up with for decorating it. I love how it came out. I made four little note cards to go inside and they fit perfectly which made all that more exciting. I used a Papertrey Ink stamp set. It was an anniversary set that they give to their customers if you buy so many stamp sets. It is really cute and has alot of images and awesome sentiments. The paper I used is from My Minds Eye Bloom Collection. One more thing before I forget I made my cards using a spellbinders die I folded in half and then cut it out. Hope you have nice Wednesday.

Sorry once again for the bad photo. Hope you have a nice Tuesday.

One More Card for Today and a BIG Thank YOU!!!

I wanted to post this card for all my readers today and all the sweet comments you left about what happened today. I truly feel so thankful for my family, friends and new friends that I have made since I started this blog. I have to say that I doubted starting this blog in the beginning but I know now that it was the best thing that I have done in a long time and it's because of you guys who come and visit me. SO Thank YOU SO MUCH!!!

Hip Hop Hangover

I am going to try to post this fast. I know I don't usually write about personal stuff on my blog but my life flashed before my eyes this morning. My husband son and I were involved in an accident this morning we did not get hurt and that is a miracle. A Tractor Trailer Truck came into our lane and hit the car in front of us I don't think that the driver made it out alive. So as sit here writing this I am still in shock and am thanking god right now that we did not get hurt as to me it's a miracle and all I can think about is my little boy in the back seat and his father both on the drivers side. So please hug your loved ones and don't take anything for granted. For the card you all know it's Unity and as soon as I stop shaking and crying I'll be back. So sorry to bring everyone down I just did not know how to get my feelings out and try to get over this.
