Rose Garden Thinlits

Happy Spring! It is so nice to hear those words but I am truly looking forward to the warmer temperatures and no snow. It was an exhausting, emotional week but the silver lining was seeing my mom/dad, our boys & Summer, plus special friend's one that just had surgery. Praying for this next week to be better.

We have a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and Lori is our hostess. Lori challenged us to break out our DIES/PUNCHES for Challenge #343. Super easy right? Well, believe it or not, I struggled with which dies and punches to break out. It was too funny because so many were calling my name.  So I headed off to Pinterest to get some ideas. 

I really wish I could say this layout was my idea but it wasn't. I "Cased" this card from www.stampsnlingers.com. A few changes for my card. I don't have as many layers on the inside of the card and my inside rose is not on white. My paper/pattern paper is Pool Party, Basic Black and Whisper Whtie from Stampin Up. The die used is called Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin Up. I believe this style could be used for any occasion.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
AAA Cards - Challenge #86 - Die Cuts
The Paper Players - PP 336 - Clean and Simple by Joanne

Our Guest Designer and my fellow Chicks in the Hen House have tons of great inspiration for you. Please check them out and come join us with your creative makes.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank You and Buttons


It is 4 Crafty Chicks time and I am the hostess for Challenge #342 and I would love to see you break out your button stash.  

The above card was inspired by this card on Pinterest made by Linda Aarhus.  
My card at the top of the post was made as a single layer card. I also used the pieces that I cut out on the bottom portion. The stamp was used from Verve and then some twine was added to the bottom for a bit of pop. I cut my strips a little smaller so the corners could be cut off.

Thank you so much for popping in. Sending smiles your way!

Lovely as A Tree, With Sympathy


Happy Thursday to you! Nance is our hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks. With this being March we are all waiting for spring to come. Nance has set our challenge #341 with "SPRING FEVER with a twist of sponging". Nance had me breaking out my sponges again.

CHALLENGE #340 - "SPRING FEVER USING SPONGING"
My card above was stamped using Lovely As A Tree. The ink was Memento Tuxedo Black. I tried to create a sunset behind the trees. Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black. Different Stampin Up inks.

The style of card is on Pinterest and tried to put my own spin on it. Her card is way more beautiful (librus).  I used sponges but she used a brayer.  My reasoning for choosing this image was thinking the start of spring before the leaves come out on the trees and the beautiful sunsets.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Have an amazing day!
