Happy Birthday!!

Hello again, it is time for another challenge over at BBTB2 and Marti is our talented design sister with the challenge.  We are to make a project or card that has to do with birthdays-card, tag, layout.  The design space had this cartridge free this week, so I thought I would play with it.  My bil had a recent birthday, so I was looking for guy images.  I thought these gears would be fun.  I found some gears from the Artiste cartridge, also.  Steam punk seems to be the craze.  Come and join the fun.  We can't wait to see your projects.  tfl.

You Did It!

Hello, Laurie is our amazingly talented designer for this week over at BBTB2 and it is all about Graduation.  I don't have anyone graduating this year, so I made an accomplishment card.  I found this star card on the Wild Card cartridge and the sentiment is from Beyond Birthdays.  Come and join the fun. tfl.

Happy Mother's Day!

It is a Mother's Day challenge over at BBTB2.  I let the paper do the talking with this card.  I love the Graphic 45 paper and tend to hoard it and not use it.  Do you ever have that paper that is too pretty to use??  I made this card for my Mom and used the Anna Griffin cartridge for the flowers and the Sentimentals cartridge for the butterflies.  The card fold came from my Silhouette Cameo.  I love this fold, it is so much fun.  tfl.

Emily busy bees, butterflies, bugs insects

It is time for another challenge over at BBTB2 and Emily is our amazingly talented designer in charge of the challenge this week.  She has chosen insects...bees butterflies, bugs.   Since our winter was so mild, I have seen alot of bugs this spring.  Ugh, I found a tick crawling on me.  That was disgusting!!  Anyway, butterflies are much more pleasant and I found this image from Anna Griffin with the rose overlay and the butterflies are from Indie Art.  The label is from the card pack.  Come and join the fun.  tfl.

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.
