Lovin' Lawn Fawn

I can't express enough how much I am lovin' my Lawn Fawn stamps sets.  They are the cutest images to work with and they stamp so nicely.  I cased this card from owner Kellie Marie's website and had a blast making it.  Dug out my pinking shears and did a huge "no no" by cutting paper, but I couldn't resist.  Doesn't it just make you smile?!

  • Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Verve Sentiment
  • Punch: EK Success small butterfly

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day to you!  I hope you're enjoying the feast and festivities of this Thanksgiving day!

This was my simple Thanksgiving project this year.  When I saw this Sizzix turkey die, I couldn't resist it in all its cuteness!  Then when I saw how someone turned it into a peacock (Michele's idea) I was thrilled to know I could use the die year round.   I used SU's sentiment from Day of Gratitude and distressed the edges a little.  Now that I look at this card two weeks after I made it, I think I should have added some pumpkins next to the peacock.  Oh well, that's what happens when you send your cards out right after you make them.  Sometimes it's beneficial to put your cards down for a little while because then you come back to them with a fresh perspective.

Thanks for stopping by and again, Happy Thanksgiving!

Doggone Great Birthday!

American Crafts came out with some cute papers and coordinating stamps and I couldn't resist.  I have a weak spot for cute critters if you couldn't tell by now.  The colors from this cheery DP are some of my favorites and I paired American Crafts with PTI to come up with this little card.

Happy Birthday Jenny

My crafting buddy Jenny or CBFF and she calls me, celebrated her birthday last week.  I took her out for brunch at Kilauea Lodge (yum!) on Sunday and we had fun "girl" time!  We talked and ate and talked and ate!  And we even did a little shopping after that!  Jenny is an incredibly generous and kind friend and I hope she had a great birthday!

I recently discovered Lawn Fawn stamps and have fallen in love with them.  Their cute and whimsical style are so up my alley.  I'm thrilled with how well they stamp and I love their versatility and simplicity. I used the bunny for the card and paired it with PTI's matstack 1 die and coordinating stamp.  I wanted to jazz up the envelope so I used the squirrel, hop marks and "yay" from the same stamp set and tied it together with the card's matching DP.  Creating this was pure joy!

Planes Trains and Automobiles

Today is my son's 2nd birthday and this is the theme for his upcoming little party.  We weren't going to do a party this year since last year's was such a big deal.  But at the last minute we decided to have a small get together with a few kids his age.  I had to come up with a quick and simple invitation and this is what I did.  I printed the party information on white cardstock and adhered it to the back of this panel card.  Simple and fun!
