Happy Birthday Cake!

Hi everyone! Have you been enjoying the summer weather this year? I have not! I am not a fan of really hot weather and this past week was way too hot for me. My husband and I were on vacation last week and we thought it would be a little bit cooler since we were traveling north, but it was not! Yuck! I am so thankful for fans and air conditioners! :)

I have a fun and colorful birthday card to share with you today!

I was playing with the new birthday set by Lawn Fawn ("Year Three") and I thought it would make the perfect cake! So, I put the sentiment on a cake stand and added some candles. Of course you can't have a party without banners, so I added some colorful ones at the top. They are from Lawn Fawn's "Blue Skies" stamp set and die. I added some hearts and stars to make the party even more festive! :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day! :)

Lawnscaping Challenge #62

Hello everyone! It's time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge! The week's challenge is to create a card using paper piecing!

 Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques! I'm not very good at coloring on my cards, so I usually use paper piecing to add color! Here is the card that I created for this challenge:

 This card features Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" stamp set and die, "Home Sweet Home," and "Plus One" stamp sets. All of the images are cut from various patterned papers and I added some pink enamel dots with the leaves.

I hope that you'll be able to play along with us at Lawnscaping! The winner will receive a free stamp set from Lawn Fawn! That's a great price! Don't forget to check out the other cards from the Lawnscaping design team, too! :)

The Sky's the Limit

Hello everyone! I hope that everyone is having a great week! My work has been very quiet this week because the street to my office is blocked because of an Arts Festival! I like it because it's nice and quiet at work, and I get to walk around town to look at art during my lunch break! Win, win! :)

I have a card to share with you today!

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Blue Skies" stamp set and die. To create this, I die cut the hot air balloons and banners from Lawn Fawn patterned paper. I added some die cut clouds and tied Lawn Trimmings around the basket. Attach everything to the card, stamp the sentiment, and you're done!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Happy Shower!

Good morning!  I think that it is only appropriate that I share this card with you now. The weather here has been nothing but overcast and rain for days! Yuck. A few days ago we had some flash flood which made things awful! I hope that things clear up so that we can still watch fireworks tomorrow!

I made this card for a bridal shower earlier this year. It would also make a nice encouragement card with a different sentiment. I like it. The clouds are from Lawn Fawn's "Bon Voyage" set, and the hearts, raindrops and sentiment is from the "Plus One" stamp set. I'm not sure where the black stickers are from (I've had them forever!).

Well, thanks for stopping by! I hope that the weather is nicer where you're at right now! :)

Lawnscaping Challenge #61 - Sketch

 Hi everyone! I am so excited to share this post with you today, because it is my first Lawnscaping post!! Ahh!! The Lawnscaping girls are so wonderful and I am so thankfully to be a part of their team!

Anyways, the current Lawnscaping Challenge is to create a card based on this sketch:

 Here is my take on the sketch!

 The new circle dies from Lawn Fawn would work great with this card and challenge, but if you don't have circle dies, you can trace around ribbon and washi tape spools! For this card, the patterned paper is from Pebbles and all of the images are from Lawn Fawn.

I also made this card for my in-laws anniversary, but I put the wrong year on the card! Opps! It will have to wait until next year. :)

Don't forget to check out the other projects from the design team members and to play along with Lawnscaping! The winner will receive a gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!

 Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope that you have a great Monday! :)
