Comfy Chair Easel Card - MSC dt

Happy Monday my crafty friends!  I hope you moms had a great mothers day yesterday!!   I wanted to share a card I made specifically for a friend who is going through some health issues and I thought this card would be the right "touch" to let her know I am thinking about her.  I used the "Comfy Chair Easel Card" file from My Scrap Chick to create this card.  The fun with putting this card together is selecting the papers/patterns for your chair ;) 




My friend really likes retro - furniture, clothes, hair, etc. ... so I tried to make my chair with that concept in mind.



I didn't photograph the back side but I added a square of blank white cardstock to the underside of the card for a place to write a note.  Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope I have inspired your crafty side today ;)

Have Your Cake and Eat It Too!!

Hi my crafty friends!!  Popping in to share a card I made with you recently.  I have a lot of colored images hanging around from the past couple of 30 Day Coloring Challenges and I am trying to get them onto some actual cards now.  That is how this card came about -


I used Lawn Fawn's "Baked With Love" stamp set for all of the images.  The sentiment is from an older Cardz TV Stamps set.  The twine is also from Lawn Fawn.  I colored all of my images using my Copic markers.  I used a die from Craftin Desert Divas for the window panes and the pattern paper is from My Favorite Things.


I am entering this into the following challenges -

Cardz TV Stamps - "Anything Goes #1"
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - "A Hint of Pink"
Crafting By Designs - "May Anything Goes"

Birthday Card for my Daughter

Popping in today to share a birthday card I created for my oldest daughter.   I sneak peeked this already on my IG account but wanted to share here too :-)


I used the Lawn Fawn "Fairy Friends" stamp set for my images.  I also used a few dies and sequins from Craftin Desert Divas for my background, fence and grass layers.  I used some distress inks to create my background layer.  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Mother's Day Purse Tote Bag - MSC dt

Hi there my crafty friends!!  I had a moment this weekend to get a head start on some Mother's Day projects and wanted to pop in and share my creations with you.  I created these Purse Tote Bags to fill with some goodies for both my mom and my mother in law.  


I used the My Scrap Chick "Trendy Tote Bag and Purse" file to cut these out.  The patterned paper is from Joanns.  I wanted to add a tag to the tote bags so I used another file from My Scrap Chick -  "Rubber Ducky Tag"  which is my favorite file lately to use for making tags. 


I used adhesive velcro for the closure so that the bag could be opened and reused.


I had the perfect sentiment from an older Cardz TV Stamps' set to add to my tags!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I hope I have inspired you with some ideas for Mother's Day or another special occasion!

Springtime Thank You card

April showers bring May flowers (so they say!!)  Well, if that is the case we should have a ton of flowers here in May!!  I decided to play along with the Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Mood Board Challenge and also needed to create a thank you card and this is what I came up with -


I drew my inspiration from the spring like flowers in the Photo inspiration - 


It was nice to be able to envision what spring should look like and create it - a much needed distraction from the constant gloomy, gray skies of the Pacific Northwest this year.  Hugs!!  and thanks for stopping by!!

Spring Birdhouses - My Scrap Chick DT

Happy Wednesday my crafty friends!!  I have a fun spring inspired craft project to share with you today!!  We keep getting glimpses of spring here in the Pacific Northwest and then we get even more glimpses of rain!!  So I needed to create something to remind me that sunnier spring days were on the horizon and this is what I came up with -



I used two different My Scrap Chick files to create these - 



and 



These birdhouse boxes can be used for a treat box too!!  I am probably going to use mine for decoration only but nice to have the option on hand!!  Here's another look -
