Thanks a Bunch!! PPPR dt

Hello and happy Monday!!  Today is my turn over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' blog and I have a fun card to share with you -

I just love the "Silly Fruit "cutting files set!!  I mean how can you go wrong with fun fruit??  I wanted to play around with this set again and this time I really wanted to use the grapes.  I found the perfect sentiment stamp to go with it and voila!!  a card is made!  I never seem to have enough "thank you" and "birthday" cards and my goal right now is to stock up.  The image is so cute that I made it large and gave it center attention on my card.  

I added a few sequins and some pen doodles to finish off my card.  I know this is not going to be the last "Silly Fruit" cutting file I play around with ;) 
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Wine Bottle Gift Tag - PPPR dt

Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog and I have a fun project to share with you.  I wanted to give some wine to a couple of friends as a thank you gift and came up with this -

I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Bottle Tag 1" cutting files along with a strawberry from the "Strawberry Basket" cutting files to create these tags for my wine bottles.  I stamped a quick thank you and voila!! my gifts were ready.  I had no real reason why I chose the strawberry theme - just liked the paper and the cute cutting file ;) !!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Die Cuttin Divas Guest Designer

Today I am exited to be a guest designer over at the Die Cuttin Divas Blog.  The theme for the new challenge is "Superheros" and this is what I came up with -

I decided to do an easel card as I haven't made one of those in ages!!  My fearless kitty is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Super Cat Cutting Files.

I die cut an oval shape out of purple pattern paper to make it look like my cat was sitting on a pretty cushion.  My sentiment and the paw prints are from a couple of Craftin Desert Divas stamp sets.  

I am going to use this as a thank you card - again another one for the wedding!!  I had so many great people helping me out and I have just the right person in mind for this one!!  

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you Georgianna for having me be a part of the Die Cuttin Divas challenge this week.

Hello Sunshine!! - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog and I have a card to share -

My card is 5 inches square since I wanted to make my cut file images as large as possible so that they were the focus of the card.  I designed this card to give as a thank you to a friend who recently treated me to my first spray tan ;)  I wanted to cover up some "imperfections" on my legs so that I would look like  a "hot mama" for my daughter's wedding, LOL!!

To create my card I used two files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons -

"Sunscreen Cutting files" 

One more look - 

I used foam tape to help create some dimension on my card and stamped a cute Peachy Keen face on my sun.  I added a tiny sentiment from a Cardz TV Stamps set.

Stirring Up a Big Thanks - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' blog and I have a card to share with you.  As many of you might know now after seeing my card for this past weekend's PPPR blog hop - my oldest daughter is getting married this Saturday.   I have 3 girls and this is the first one to get married :) Anyway, I have been busy making cards to give as thank yous for all of the help we are getting to put the wedding together.  This card is designed for my friend who is catering our desserts.

 To create this card I used several images from the "Baking Fun Cutting Files" set.  I just layered the images on top of each other to give the card a fun effect.

One more closer look -

I had the perfect sentiment to go with my card from the Craftin Desert Divas' "Baked With Love" stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by today!

From Our House to Yours - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog and I have a card to share -

As soon as I saw the newly released Birdhouses Cutting files I knew I needed to play with them!!
To create my card I also used the tree branch from the Bird on Branch cutting files.  I cut out two of the birdhouses but did a little editing in my silhouette software and using the knife tool I cut off the bases of the birdhouses.  I popped up the birdhouses with some foam tape to add extra dimension to the card.  I hope I have inspired you with my card today - thanks so much for stopping by!!
