Welcome Spring!

I get to pick the challenge over at BBTB2 and I chose spring flowers.  You should be able to find alot of spring flowers to choose from for your card or project.  I love looking for the beautiful flowers that come into bloom this time of year.  What a blessing after winter, although our winter was really good this year, not much snow and not very cold.  Yay.  I found my flowers in the Walk in my Garden cartridge, the clouds and sunshine are from Pooh and Friends and the fence from Wrap it Up  and the grass is from Artbooking.  I made my card using an easel card base.  tfl.

Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

Valentyna is our amazingly talented designer from BBTB2 with our challenge for this week.  It's all about the sweet stuff.  We all love the sweet stuff, especially me!!  I would not be able to exist without chocolate, lol.  I am thinking about my grandchildren, who all have birthdays in April and May, when making my project.  This is a shaker card with a sweet cupcake from Once Upon a Princess, balloons from Wrap it up and the frame is from Artfully Sent.  Come and join the fun.  tfl.

Happy Easter!

Susan is our amazing design sister in charge of the challenge over at BBTB2 and it is all about Easter!!  I bet you are seeing bunnies, chickies and eggs all over the place!  I made my card from scratch, from a card I saw on Pinterest.  Jayne made it and she was one of our designers a while ago. She is soooo talented!!  The card base, eggs and banner are from Art Philosophy, the bunny from Create a Critter, the grass is from Artiste, the sunshine and clouds are from Pooh and Friends.  I made a tent card, using a little different technique than Jayne.  I cut two tags and attached them to a fold, so I would have different sections graduated inside.  Then added the grass, bunnies and eggs.  It was lots of fun.  

I just barely got this card done.  I had a good amount of stress lately and medicated myself with sugar, which gave me a nice virus that I was dealing with most of the week.  I watched my grandchildren for a day this week, also.  Well, here it is, just under the wire.  tfl.

Hello, I am into Easter mode and making cards.  Our challenge over at BBTB2 is to make a card or project using trees.  Kelly is in charge of our challenge and it is really in honor of Arbor Day!   I found this cute bunny peeking out behind this tree in the Campin' Critter cartridge.  The eggs are from Art Philosophy and the grass from Zooballoo.  I forget where my wording came from, but I welded it in the Cricut Design Space.  This is a center step card from my Silhouette Cameo.  Come and join the fun.  Sophie (our dog) and I are enjoying the spring weather and taking walks.  The trees are starting to leaf out and I enjoy looking for spring flowers.  tfl.

I just had to share a picture of our new baby, Boston Terrier.  She is 4 months old now and we totally love her.  I love all her puppy snuggles!  Can I tell you how soft she is, but not her mouth, lol.  Seriously the jaws don't come out as often as they used to.  She started puppy class last Monday.  She is learning quickly.  Just had to share our little sweetie.

Over at BBTB2 it is time for another challenge.  Maureen is our awesomely talented designer with the challenge of making a baby or baby shower project.  You know how much fun it is to make a baby project, so I hope you will join us.  I used a card base from my Silhouette Cameo and the other images are from Baby Steps.  All my grands are big now and not babies anymore.  I enjoy every stage tho babies are so much fun.  Does a baby doggie count???  We recently added a beautiful Boston Terrier to our family.  She is definitely my baby.  tfl.
