"With Love on Mother's Day" {Fantabulous Cricut Challenge}

Here's a Mother's Day card that I wanted to share.

I used one of my favorite Cricut cartridges "A Child's Year" (surprise!) for this adorable mother and child image!!  SO SWEET!!! :)

The sweet Mother's Day sentiment was a freebie that I downloaded from MyGrafico over a year ago and they still have it!!! :)  Go get yours!! :))

I'm submitting this for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #57 - "Mom's the Word".

:)  Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Birthday to you, Diego!

Today is my dear nephew's birthday!!

This is the card I made for him.  I used the "Life is a Beach" cartridge to cut this adorable square card with the seahorse!  I ran the blue background paper through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I inked the sand, seaweed and blue water with colored embossing ink.  The fun seashell/sand letters are from my stash ... I bought them years ago at a scrapbook store in Destin, Florida! :)  I also cut the matching "charm" from the same Cricut cartridge and added a "6" to commemorate his whomping #6!!  :)

Happy Birthday, Diego!  We love you, buddy!!!  :)

Happy Birthday from Theadore! {Heart Song Designs}

Had a few minutes to create a card tonight when I hadn't even planned on it!  ;)  YIPPEE!!  I love it when that happens! :)

I used one of the recent releases from Heart Song Designs, this adorable new Theadore with balloons!  Perfect for a birthday wish!!

I colored him with Copics following the SCS color challenge for this week, CC318, as well as the layout for this week's sketch challenge SC328.  :)  It was fun (and quick)!

Here's my SCS gallery if you'd like to take a look! :)

*Teamwork* {Custom Order}

Last week I was given the opportunity to create 12 sets of 12 custom notecards for a local business.

They wished to provide their supervisors with notecards to distribute words of thanks to employees for *teamwork* exemplified in the workplace.  {What a great idea!}

Thanks for visiting!

Sketches With Heart {New Sketch Challenge!}

Happy Sunday, everyone!
It's time for another sketch with Heart Song Designs!

Here's the sketch for this week ...

I enjoyed it so much, I made 2 cards!!  FUN! :)

For the first card, I used the beautiful Easter Cross ...

I LOVE this Heart Song digi!!  I love the ring of flowers around the precious crown of thorns that our Savior bore on our behalf!  *Amazing Love!*  HE has won for us the chance of a "New Beginning"!

For my second card today, I HAD to play with the sweet Cupcake Tier!

 They are so fun to color!  I had to go with pink for today, as I wanted to use the pink polka dot ribbon.  The sweet BINGO card was a free download... somewhere!  I got it a while back and cannot remember WHERE!  Sorry!  Wish I could share that!  I layered all together BEFORE embossing in the Cuttlebug.  *This follows the SCS challenge for Friday - Free4All {F4A59} - Embedded Embossing!  Hard to see well here, but it really does look cool!

Here's a close up.  I also spritzed it with Glimmer Mist.  ( I LOVE that stuff!!)

So glad you could stop by today!  Don't forget to visit the Inspirations Blog to link YOUR project to the sketch challenge!!  We'd love to see what you create!

:)  Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Daly Photography {Custom Order}

Boy, it's been a busy week! 

I thought I'd share a little of what I've been up to.  Today, I completed a set of personalized notecards for a friend who is the owner of Daly Photography.  (Take a look at her website!  She does BEAUTIFUL work!!) 
The cards are complete with the beautiful logo of her company. :)  Other than that, she lets me have full-reign in creating these custom Thank You cards ready to deliver thanks to her clients!


The pinks in the wedding cards are the colors they used in their weddings. :)

She also asked me to create a hand-crafted paper CD holder for her.  That was fun!  Here's what I came up with for those ...

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sketches With Heart {New Sketch Challenge!}

It's Sunday, and time for another sketch challenge with Heart Song Designs!

Here's this weeks' sketch ...

and here's my card ...

This sketch is fun, with lots of layers! 

For my card, I used the NEW April Showers.  I used this dp from SEI that I used for my Blog Hop card on Friday.  I just purchased it recently from my LSS, and I just love the light blue and yellow with pops of red.  :)  Fun and different from the typical spring colors.

Please play along, create something fun and share it with us all at Heart Song Designs by linking your project here.   We would LOVE to see what you create!!!
You don't have to use a Heart Song image, but we'd love it if you would!  Check out the shop and pick up one of Leah's GREAT digis!!

Come on!  Join the fun! :)

Happy Sunday!!
