Happy Pink Birthday

Happy Pink Birthday says it all
as this card is all pink!

I used a darker pink designer paper and a 
Tutti Designs Stitched Nesting Oval to
cut out an oval from the paper.
(I can use the oval die cut on something else later)

I found that the Happy Birthday Oval
fit darn near perfect inside the cut out!
I added a little bit of a stardust pen inside each little circle (dot).

A few 'candi's' were added and a pretty bow,
once again with ribbon from the RRR club.
The inside sentiment says
'May your day be filled with joy'.

Get Well

Rain rain go away
come again some other day!
We have had rain and six days of it end on Tuesday...hopefully!
I will say we are very 'green' out though 
and the hubby is already complaining about the grass mowing!

Today I have a 'Get Well' card to share,
a very 'simple' get well card!

I have to admit, I haven't made many get well cards in my card making days,
I don't want to admit this is the first one, but it very well could be...
shameful, I know LOL!!

This was created very simply by using a background paper
that I rounded the corners on and  using the
Tutti Designs Swirly Get Well die.

I added a dragonfly from my stash of very OLD scrapbook supplies.
He really is a handsome dragonfly as he has real wire antennas,
beads on his wings and is 3D!
See ya tomorrow!

Today it's all about 'LOVE'!
Funny, but I was looking around my creative room
and all it's messy contents and thought
'I LOVE my room'
I LOVE all the stuff in it
I LOVE what I do!!!
It just makes me happy happy!!

So, all that being said, today's car is also all about 'LOVE'!

Card stock base is white, matted with a black card stock on top.
I added a black and white designer paper from Authentique.

I die cut a pretty lacy  die from a white shimmer paper
(sorry can't remember which die it is)
and a red metallic heart using Tutti Designs Love Heart.

I added a bow using ribbon once again from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon.
So how do I make my bows?  I

The Sisterhood Challenge The Letter "B"

Welcome to a new challenge starting today at 

Terri is our hostess and she has chosen the theme
'The Letter 'B'".

Now I had all kinds of ideas for this one
rather then the normal thinking of butterflies or
But darn if I didn't go with a butterfly (and blue)
for 'my' letter "B'.

The frame and the butterflies were pretty rejects from another project using Memory Box Butterfly Exhibit, I could cut 20 of these and never get tired of them!
They somehow ended up laying together and they
just seemed to work so well together.

I added a few sequins and a stamped sentiment.

In addition to my card I have a cute little gift 'bag'
in matching papers to my card.

It is extremely simple to make by just using a small white
bag (can be found at craft stores) and designer paper and ribbon.

The bag can be decorated any way you like...simple OR fancy.  I made a flower using a Spellbinders die and
Denim glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I used a little velcro dot to close it with.
A great little gift for 'Mother's Day'!!!

If you would like to make one of your own, 
I made another one HERE with the instructions.
Make sure and visit my 'sistah's at The Sisterhood to see all their

Happy Anniversary

I tell you one thing, I should never, ever run out of anniversary/wedding cards
with all I have made in the last 3 or 4 days lol!

I really like this one and it would be great for a 'silver' anniversary.

I used a pretty black and white designer paper on top
and a diamond pattern embossing folder on the bottom.
(I thought the 'diamonds' kind of fit the mood...hah!

The ribbon is part of my monthly club ribbon from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon...
my, how I love that stuff, I have tons of ribbon, but I reach
for that ribbon 99.9% of the time.

The sentiment is 'my own' I computer generated it and punched it our
using an SU punch,

Now onto the 'die'!!
It is from the newly released wedding dies for  April from Tutti Designs,
The die was cut from a silver metallic paper, 
and I added a few pearls to finish!

Yesterday the wedding dies were released at
Tutti Designs and I have a card fr you using one of the new dies

A strip of designer paper was placed underneath and I ran a
'chain link strip' (dazzles I have had forever) along the top and bottom,
A just married sentiment sticker was added to complete...pretty easy....
 also a good die for a man for a birthday, retirement or Father's Day!
