Happy Easter

I just got this card done in the nick of time to enter in the From the Heart – Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge. I have been wanting to rejoin the challenge but just haven’t had time. But this month I thought I would have time and then I almost didn’t! I might regret staying up late but so glad I got it done. This month’s digital Stamp was adorable….

Thinking of you flowers

So several months ago I found Imagine That digis by Kris Blog and have been wanting to join in on the Digi of the Month challenge she has. But this was the first month I found time to play…and I barely found it this month! I had to squeeze it in today before a friends birthday party….but I made it! I liked how Donna Rinckel made her card with the flowers so I went that route too. I really like how simple and cute this card turned out. You can’t tell from the photo but there are yellow stickles in the middle of the flowers and the flowers are popped up with pop dots. The flower on the left is actually half popped up and half not since the top of the flower looks like it is under the leaf.

I tried using some of the cute digi paper in the pack but my printer put lines through it and I didn’t have time to mess with it today. So I looked in my scrap drawer and found the perfect matching paper. I used Sketch Saturday #351 as my inspiration for the layout.

1) Imagine That…digis by Kris – Digi of the Month Challenge – Use the image provided to make a project and receive next months free!

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Peacocks @ Imagine That!…digis by Kris

I needed a birthday card for my Sister-in-law. She likes hot tea and coffee so I thought this image, Coffee Cup Greetings, at Deedee’s Digis was perfect. I liked the color challenge at Cupcake Inspiration this week but didn’t get it linked up before it closed. I used the I {heart} sketch #101 as my inspiration. I liked it but it didn’t look like my sister-in-law at all so I made a second card that was more her colors and style.

So I realized today as I was looking through my files that I’m way behind in posting as I haven’t posted the Valentine Cards made with Doodle Pantry images! So here is trying to catch up after the holidays…just in time for Mother’s Day card making frenzy to start!!

Valentine Monster Truck

One of my regular’s at work wanted Valentine cards for her 3 boys. This is what I made the 5 year old…..it was the perfect image for a 5 yoa boy in my opinion!! I used I {heart} sketches #37 as my inspiration.

She also needed 2 teacher cards. I only had one made so I made this one….which is similar to the other one I made a couple years ago. This card was inspired by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 sketch #43.

Teacher for ewe

Another lady at work need a card with a walrus on it so this image, Critter Friends, at Doodle Pantry was perfect!! I used the Card Sketch #41 at Sketch n Scrap for my inspiration!

Walrus Valentine

And the last one I made for my husband! I never tell him enough how good looking he really is….so I thought this was a good way!

Stud Muffin

Thanks for stopping by and catching up with me!

Sparkling Snowflakes

Snowflakes

I needed a card with “sparkle” so I could play over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge as they are having a 300th post Bash with a TON of prizes. There will be 3 inspiration photos….one today – Sparkle, one on Tuesday – Color and one on Thursday – Confetti. You have until the March 14th to enter the three challenges. Deedee Digis is a sponsor and her prize package is part of Color challenge so that one is a must to enter if you want to win a $25.00 gift card to Deedee’s Digis. She just put some super cute Easter digital stamps in the store.

I went looking in blog land looking for inspiration. I can’t even remember how I found Tamytha’s blog with this beautiful card but I did and it inspired my card. I think you can see I took the basic ideal of the card but also made it my own.  Yes, I fussy cut all those snowflakes out!! Not sure I will make multiple of these but I do like how it turned out. I couldn’t decided what to put on the front tag so I thought it would make a good Christmas card for a teacher. Added blue jewels in the center of the snowflakes for my “sparkle” and my card was done!

CHALLENGES:

1) Cupcake Inspirations 300th Bash Challenge – Sparkle – add sparkle to your card

2) March Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – lift a card or sketch you have saved in your favorites.
