Mojo Monday challenge


I made my card using the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and was trying to get it done to add to the Merry Monday challenge to use a deer on your card, but I didn't quite make it for the Merry Monday challenge.

For my card I used DSP from MME Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 pad and matted them with SU Crumb Cake.  I used the cute deer from Verve's Santa's Helper.  The sentiment is from the same set and is cut with an MFT Pierced Circle die.  I stamped the white panel in Crumb Cake ink with MFT Cheesecloth Background.  This panel,  the deer and the sentiment are all mounted with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Have a Beautiful Birthday

I needed another birthday card for a sweet lady at church so I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and made this card.


The lt. blue and black DSP is from an older pad Story of Us by Momenta.  The flowers and leaves are cut using SU Botanical Builder Framelits.  I love this die set and debated on getting it but I am glad I did as I have used it on quite a few cards.  I added some sparkly enamel dots by Eyelet Outlet to the centers of the flowers.  The sentiment is from SU Birthday Blossoms.  I cut the center white panel with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags dies and just cut the ends off for a little added detail.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happiest of Birthdays To You - NBUS Challenge #8

I made a card for Darnell's new NBUS Challenge #8 (Never Before Used Schtuff) using my MFT Wonky Rectangle Stax (NBUS) that I was anxious to use.  Her theme is to Use Colored Pencils on Kraft.
I stamped the image and sentiment with SU Birthday Blooms in Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  First I colored the image with a white pencil and then with the 2 different  red and 2 different green pencils to get some shading.  I also used a dark yellow pencil for the center of the flower.  I then cut the kraft panel out with the MFT Wonky Rectangle die (NBUS).  I mounted this panel with foam tape to the white card base.  I have only used this technique one time before and that was a long time ago.  I wasn't happy with it them, but I really like how this turned out. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Seize the Birthday - Doodling and Dashes

Happy Thursday my friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of Doodling and/or Dashes.

This is a card for another one of my family birthdays.  I used this cute image from MFT Hog Heaven stamp set and colored her with Promarkers.  I then cut her out with the matching dies.  She is mounted with foam tape on an MFT Stitched Circle die cut and Spellbinders Scallop Circle die cut.  I did some doodling around the scallops on the mat and added some dashes around the main panel.  The pink paper is SU Blushing Bride and the yellow is from an older birthday pack.  The sentiment is from MFT Label Maker Love (Happy) and Label Maker Sentiments (Birthday).  The black scallop mat is die cut with MFT Blueprints 20 die.

Don't forget to check out all the fabulous cards by the Design Team over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday to my Granddaughter

Today is my beautiful granddaughter's birthday and this is the card I made her.

 I stamped the front of the card with MFT Diagonal Stripes BG in SU Regal Rose ink.  That is one of the colors I used in the Altenew Beautiful Day flower.   I also used Pink Pirouette and Strawberry Slush inks.  The leaves are stamped with Altenew green inks.   I used the matching dies to cut the flower and leaves.  The sentiment is from SU Birthday Blooms and cut with SU Lots of Labels die.  I traced the die on the Regal Rose CS and fussy cut it for the mat.  The sentiment panel and the flower are mounted with foam tape.
Here she is with flowers and candy from her boyfriend.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday to my Great-Granddaughter


I have been sick since 2 days before Christmas and am starting to feel better and wanted to get a few cards done.  We have 6 family birthdays this month.


I made this card for my great-granddaughter who is turning 16.  Her favorite color is burgundy so I used SU Bravo Burgundy CS and ink.  I stamped 2 background stamps and then die cut the balloons and all the elements using MFT Blueprints 26 dies.  I sponged the edges of the balloons with Bravo Burgandy ink and added the die cut 16.  The white panel is embossed with SU Decorative Dots EF.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
