I turtley love spring!

 Oh my goodness, woke up this morning and it is snowing here in Kalamazoo Michigan.  I can't believe it. I thought Spring was here to stay and now it seems if winter wants to come back and play.  Hard to believe that I am turning my heat on at the end of April.  Shaking  my head to that.

My card is showing how much I like Spring anyway.  This stamp set comes with this cute girl riding
her pet turtle and the fun sentiment "I turtley love Spring"  I do I do  :)   Come back where ever you are.  :)

I've distressed my paper edges a bit and kept it clean and simple.  Don't you think the image speaks
for itself?  I'm thinking it would look darling on a layout too.

If you like this image you can find it at the Sunsational Stamps Shop here:
There are two others one says I turtley love Snow, and the other says I turtley love you.  This
fun turtle is also on the animals page all by himself if you just want him by himself.  :)  I say
get 4, might as well have a full set :)

What's up Bestie?

Another fun day with Jen doing Challenges.  We came upon this fun over at Creative Knockouts to use die cuts or punches.  I'm using the die cuts from Scan n Cut.  

I am using a My-besties stamp by Sherri Baldy.  I forget the name of this but will post a link to it
shortly.  Her etsy shop is:

I really wanted to put a sentiment on my card but just couldn't find one that said What's up Bestie?
I'm really not sure where I would add it on the outside, so I'll have to write it inside. :)

Thanks for taking a peak at my clean and simple card.

Challenge I would like to enter is: #83 add a punch or diecut
ends 4/14

CAS(e) the sketch 117

My friend Jen and I are doing challenges today for fun.  It's spring break, and what better way to
spend a chilly day?

We found this awesome sketch challenge over at CAS(E) this sketch #117

Here is my take on the sketch.  :)  My son is 25 in May, I think he will like this

Spring Cleaning

Spring is here and that means it's time to start Spring Cleaning.  We just started at our house this
past weekend, have you? 

I decided to make it fun this time, and use this little bear stamp to add to my list of things to do.
Isn't she darling?  I am a list maker.  Now, I'm not saying I always do what's on my list, but
I love following them, or making them on my own.  This one here here is a freebie that I found
online, so I can't take credit for it, but doesn't it work perfectly with the little cleaning bear?  :)

Okay, so here are the details..

Mop Bear clear stamp found here:

You can find a broom bear, a  dust bear, and a dust pan bear too, under the spring section at

Bye, thanks for taking a peak.  

Challenges entered: (spring is in the air) april 14 (anything goes linky party)

WIth lots of Love

A couple months ago I was lucky enough to have won this darling boy stamp
from Bugaboo Stamps.   I think it is adorable, reminds me of my boys and their dogs.
I so rarely make boy cards, so wasn't sure where to start, or how to embellish.
I think keeping it simple was the best way to go.   

I'd like to enter my card ino the following challenges:

1. (sketch challenge ends 4/27)

3. due 26 days (animal)

Unity Stamps Card

Unity Stamps Challenge- Be Inspired

My card today is using stamps by Unity Stamp Company.
The big flowers stamps, the arrows stamp, and made with Love stamp.

My papers are from My Mind's Eye

This was such a fun challenge. There is a darling sketch challenge for both a card
and a layout there, so come play along.  If you aren't one for sketches, there is also
a color challenge going on.  Come give it a try.

For my card, I wasn't exactly a straight stamper, but really liked how it
turned out.  Goes to show you don't have to be a perfect stamper to make
a cute card. :)  

I would like to enter my card into the challenge at:
This challenge ends April 8th.

Fluttering by to say hi- Fairy card

It's already April 2nd, and I can't believe nobody tried to pull a prank at the house on me yesterday.
yay!  Did you get caught this year?

About a week ago I started on this card, and got it to where I almost felt it was finished, but something
was missing, so I just put it up for a few days until I could think of what it needed.  I ended up putting
the 3 pink flowers on the right, and the little stick pin bow that a friend sent to me.  I also added the
fluttering by to say hi banner.  Just those 3 things, and it really changed the card until I really like
it.  :)  I am not one for embellishing cards, I never can figure out what to put where.  I am super
happy with it this time. Guess it just takes me a while.   Thanks for taking a peak.

The latest card that I made using a My-Besties image by Sherri Ann Baldy

I made the color of my paper and flowers using the Color-ology kit.  It is super cool, comes with
pigments, and diamond dust.  I really wish you could see the dazzling sparkle that it makes on my
card.  I've used stickles on my fairy but for some reason it isn't showing either.

The sentiment says "Fluttering by to say hi " I wish I could capture the sparkle on the camera.

The image that I am using is img548…/instant-dowmload-digital-digi-stamps…

Come on over to the group on facebook called My-Besties Designs to see the lovely cards!
