Wishing you Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!

I've been playing with my MFT You Make My Tail Wag set...I just love the cute dogs!

I saw a few cards with him peeking out of a window, so I thought I'd try one too. I added a fence behind him. The sentiment is also from MFT called Sending and Wishing. I used Blueprints #20 for the card base.

I'm entering this at:

Just add ink: sequins

Pixie's Snippets Playground snippets of brown and black

The Male Room letters or numbers

Have a great day!

The Card Concept #33

Hi everyone!

It's all about pinks, grays and patterns over at The Card Concept!

Here is the inspiration photo:

I chose to go with the colors, and added a diagonal striped background, clean and layered. I used the stamp set,"Bitty Bouquets " from Papertrey. When, oh when, will they get the matching dies in? I have been waiting and waiting! I stamped the flower, and cut it out with a Lil inker circle die instead. I added a bit of bakers twine at the bottom.

Head on over to The Card Concept and join us with this fun challenge!

The Paper Players challenge # 240

Hi everyone!

Today the challenge at The Paper Players is:

Such pretty colors!

I decided to make a spring thank you card with Stampin Up's butterfly thinlits using some strawberry slush ink. I sponged it over the paper before I die cut. I used the pistachio for the leaves and background. The sequins were my touch of coastal cabana.

Head on over to The Paper Players and join the fun with this pretty color challenge!

Sending you smiles

Hi everyone!

The card I'm sharing today features the Memory Box Tilth Floral Die. I cut it out with a piece of alcohol ink paper I made quite awhile ago. ( here's the link for this technique, and a tutorial here) I backed it on some white paper I cut out with MFT Blueprints #20. The sentiment is MFT's Sending and Wishing stamp and die set.

I'm entering this at:

Have a great day!

All because of Jesus!

Happy Easter! 

Today the challenge at The Paper Players is from Jaydee, "use a die cut."

I LOVE dies, and I LOVE alcohol inks, so I combined the two to make this Easter card. The cross is from Taylored Expression, and the background is Spellbinders Resplendent rectangles.

The sentiment is also from Taylored Expression, a BEAUTIFUL sentiment set:

He is Risen

I love each verse, they are SO meaningful!

 "All because of Jesus" I stamped on the front, and inside," Love is alive, Hope is reborn, and Joy is renewed."

That pretty much sums it all up...all because of Jesus...we have eternal life!

Happy, Happy Easter everyone!!!!
