Welcome Little One

No, there isn't any new lil' babies in our family!  Just this sweet card to share today!  This lil' carriage grabbed me the moment I saw it.  Isn't it the sweetest thing ever?  I love the vintage feel it had and went to creating with it right away.  Apparently the girls at Paper Crafts liked it as well and I was so excited to see it published in a recent Spring Issue of Card Creations!

The stamp is actually a Unity stamp called Delight in The Little Things.  The sentiment is from a GinaK Designs called Ticket Trio. After creating my card base and adding pattern paper, I stamped it and cut it out with a Spellbinders oval die template.  To create the fun dots on the bottom that soften the card up just slightly, I cut/embossed an A2 Polka Dots die template from Spellbinders.  Then I cut the bottom of the rectangle off and adhered it to the card.  Sweet pastel paper is from Simple Stories.

The winner of the giveaway is Val!  Congrats!  I will try and get that out to you right away.  I love seeing the crafting community come together to help those in need.  Hopefully everyone who was able to attend the crop had a great time as well.

July is just around the corner!  The kids have one more day of school.  Can't wait.  I'm soooo ready for the hot weather.  Have a great weekend everyone!   Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's NOT that I haven't been crafting... : )

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing a card that I created for the store.  It's full of shine and lots of yummies!  I LOVE this line from KaiserCraft (although the photo doesn't do it justice!)  It's from the 75 cents Collection.  The die I used for the background is Spellbinders Adorning Squares.

I wanting to do a post for quite some time (it's not that I haven't been crafting!  Believe me!)  There is just so much going on in this busy thing called life that I am having a hard time keeping up.  But I wanted you to know that a friend of mine is helping organize a fantastic even this weekend to help raise money for the Oklahoma tornado victims.  When we come together we can really make a difference in the lives of the people who are facing 'not so sunshiny' times right now!  You will be inspired in more ways than one, there will be opportunities to give and prizes to be had!

I will be posting a sneak peek of the project I will be sharing in just a few days.  And at that point I will hook you up with all the links you'll need to check it out!

Until then my friends...happy crafting!!
