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 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.

Valentine Card Monster

I have been busy making valentines, and this is one that I made for one of my grandchildren.  I love this cute little monster.  This is cut from my Silhouette Cameo. It is hard to craft right now because I have a puppy keeping me busy.  I have nicknamed her "jaws" at the moment, because I am very acquainted with her teeth.  She is just the cutest, tho.   tfl.

Hello, this challenge stretched the imagination a little bit, but so much fun.  Laurie has chosen our challenge over at BBTB2 is to make an Elvis themed project.  We are celebrating Elvis' birthday.  I also wanted to incorporate a Valentine theme.  I used the Teddy Bear Parade, Art Philosophy cartridges and my Silhouette Cameo to make this card.   I am getting this done at the very last minute,  because of a nasty virus.  So glad to be done with that.  I watched my grands last week and was totally exhausted...but here it is.  tfl.

Something New

Hello again, I hope everyone had amazing holidays.  Christmas is amazing for me, because of the grandchildren and their joy.  We had the whole family over for Christmas, and had alot of wonderful food.  I love watching the grandkids play together, also.  Maureen has the challenge over at BBTB2 and our challenge is to make something to do with the New Year or something new.  I chose something new.  Right before closing for the year at the campground, we found an amazing deal on this used camper, but new to us.  We are so excited but it will have to wait till spring to enjoy.  Our old camper was having so many issues and was beginning to not be much fun.  I used Campin' Critters, and Artbooking to make this layout.  Come an join the fun.  tfl.
