Hi, Friend

Happy Sunday! It is finally feeling like spring around here, so I created a spring-like card for today's post. I used MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #118 for the layout, and patterned papers are from Blossom Soup by Jillibean Soup.

The Die-namics Butterflies were cut from Berrylicious, Cotton Candy, and Orange Fizz cardstock, and the Fancy Flourish was cut from Sour Apple cardstock. The sentiment is from Inspired by the Front Porch.

I embellished with adhesive rhinestones, some zig zag stitching, and a trio of glitter dots.

Today is our last day of spring break -- it's back to school tomorrow! I am going to enjoy our beautiful weather before I get started on those lesson plans!

Thanks for visiting today! Have a great day!

Happy Birthday 2 You

Hi there! Happy Tuesday to you! Today's card is one that I made for Caroline's friend for her birthday. I love the way these colors and dies came together to create a fun design! I used MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #116. The MFT sketches are always a go-to for great layouts!

The long panel was the perfect location for the Die-namics Vertical Gift Card Pocket. I love the fun colors in these Lime Twist: Happy Go Lucky 6x6 papers (My Mind's Eye), and the MFT cardstocks and ink were the perfect complements! :)

I used this month's Triple Scoop Set, Birthday Sentiments, and stamped it in Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. I rounded some corners, and I added a trio of adhesive rhinestones and a bit of machine stitching. Easy peasy! :)

Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate it so much! :)

Have a fantastic day!

Hello there! I hope you had a very happy, blessed Easter. We had a wonderful day with family. The girls and I are on spring break this week, so I'm counting on lots of crafty time! Here's my card for the latest MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch. You can find all the details HERE on the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers.

I kept things pretty clean and simple on this card. I sponged around the circle and sentiment with Kraft Premium Dye Ink, then I added some distressing, piercing, and a tiny bit of zig zag stitching. These Fly a Kite 6x6 papers (My Mind's Eye) are so much fun -- I find myself using them a lot lately!

That's all for now! Thank you for stopping by to visit today!

Have a great day!
