I'll give you a daisy a day...

Wasn't that the title of a song? Man I am dating myself, and now I will have to look up the words and who sung it. If you know, leave me a note please!!!!

This card came together so quickly and really has a WOW factor. The Big Shot makes it so easy. I used the Daisy die and cut out the flowers and layered them on the designer paper. So quick and easy. Spray on some shimmer paint and this makes a really lovely presentation. This card is made from a full sheet of paper, so finding an envelop is challenging. Since this is 3-d I am going to make a box. Stay tuned, I will try and do a tutorial on box making for any size!!!

Enjoy your day...the promise of spring is in the air...and don't forget to help me out with that song!!!

Thanks Ladies

Thanks to the wonderful ladies who joined me at the event yesterday. We were able to collect some much needed food for the foodbank and had tons of fun in the process.

This card wasn't a final contender, but I love it anyway. The poppy parade paper is so fun and bright...makes you think of spring! Layer on some coordinating designer paper and matching ribbon, and you have a quick fun card.

The stamp I used is from the Punch Bunch set which is free with a Sale a bration order. Act fast, the offer is only available until the end of March.

Gotta run, family birthday party at our house tonight! Family, fun and food...a great combo!

Stamp a Stack reminder

Well, another snowy morning here in Dorchester. Mother Nature seems quite confused, but I guess we need to remember it is still winter.

Thoughts of spring will certainly be in the air next Saturday. There are still spots available for the stamp a stack. I am closing registration on Wed, so I have time to finish up all the projects.

Remember this is in support of the Foodbank, and for every item you donate you get a ticket on the prize basket!

This card is a total case of Angie Juda. She is a hugely talented demo and has a wonderful website full of ideas and inspiration...be sure to stop by. The base is cut with the big shot and is early expresso, love that colour. The card is made with Marina Mist and the designer paper is from Greenhouse Gala.

Enjoy your day. Let me know if you are inspired by this post, and add a comment!

Happy March 1st

What a lovely morning. March has arrived like a lamb and a nice change from the cold and snow we have had. On the weekend I finally made this little easel box...and it was so easy. Check out the directions HERE. Very easy to follow and so much fun once it is all together. The paper is Poppy Parade and the coordinating designer paper. The owl is a stamp you can get free with a sale a bration order of $60.00 or more.

Enjoy your day....and thanks for stopping by...feel free to let me know where you are from, and what you enjoy the most seeing on my blog.
