April challenge

So April's challenge was to do a card with flowers...
I cheated & didn't follow the rules :). But I can do that sometimes :)
So a group of ladies I worked with 15 years ago and I have been doing dinner every month or so for 15 years. We've been through a lot together. One of the ladies is moving far far away to start a new job.
So this card is for her
I was hoping a cheery card would make saying goodbye easier....  Wishing her luck in her new life & sad that she is leaving. I have enjoyed her friendship...and hope that we will stay in touch!

Everything's Coming Up..... Sue B

Happy Day all:

Today I get to share my flower card here at Crafty Card Gallery. Each month we are given a theme and this month is Spring Flowers. I decided to combine my two favorite companies (Stampin' Up and Close to My Heart) to make this card. Here it is:

This card actually took no time at all (just about 10 mins) because I stamped the image 3 times, cut and colored and glued it all down. I used leftover paper from my Ariana Workshop on the Go . The stamp on the cover is from Stampin' Up and the sentiment om the inside is from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Collection. Of course my Close to My Heart Exclusive Inks! did the trick. I think this is one of my favorites from Close to My Heart. Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Until next time....

Make Your Own Background Paper

It's my turn to give you some inspiration from the design team!

The background you see here is handmade. I love the bright colours, and the brightness of the card. It could be used for just about any occassion.

I vaguely remember doing this in the past, but it's been awhile. A friend found a fabulous video on how to do this technique, and I'd like to share it with you.

For full details, please visit my blog:

Thanks for looking!

A Little Birdie Told Me…

Hi everyone!!! Spring is almost here!!! Days are getting longer and a little bit warmer which has got me in the mood to create something fun  and springy. :-) I have a card I created for this month challenge which is something  birthday related.
I stared with cutting a card base using the Sizzix Card, Scallop #3 die from Moss Green Glitter Cardstock. Next I gathered up my card stock scraps, two stickers from the Robin's Nest: Spring Sticker and White Dew Drop  to use on this adorable card. The little birdie is from the Little Spring Birdies college sheet from Altered Pages. I fussy cut one of the bird out and added a sequin, Crystal Stickles and a little party hat that I cut from my scraps. The birthday is sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Simple Sayings II set. 

Isn't the little birdie just festive???

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!
