Butterfly Punch, Blessings from Heaven, Washi Tape

Happy Friday.  I was looking at Pinterest again and saw this wonderful easy card that I needed to case.  I know I am going back to spring, but I could not help myself.  You can find the original card here.  She has quite a few cards she used the washi tape with.  Great ideas! 
So here is my version.
And the inside. (messed up the butterfly at bottom, but it is just me) :)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful and blessed day.

Lovely As a Tree and Wetlands

Happy Monday! Yes, I am back to share a couple of cards I made by using the sponging technique along with stamping over each stamp to add dimension.  I found it on Pinterest and loved the card, so thought I would try it myself.  You can find the original post here, and the Pinterest link here
Now I took two sheets of paper cut the width of the card, 5 1/2 and put a few dots of adhesive on them, rubbed my fingers over them to soften the adherence of it and then placed one at the top of the card and one at the bottom to be able to sponge the center. (I think she used sticky notes for the card on Pinterest, regardless same effect.)  I used midnight muse for the sky and mellow moss for the grass.  Leaving the paper on top and bottom, I then stamped the trees in a lighter green, then a little darker green, took the paper off the top and bottom and then stamped the trees in black.  So, so easy.
I just love this one layer card and so, so easy.
I also had to do the inside of the card.

And then I decided to do another one with the same technique, just a different stamp set and I loved it even more.  I just love these little birds from the SU Wetlands stamp set.  I actually used the same two pieces of paper for the top and bottom and sponged with crumb cake ink for sand and pool party for the ocean.  Took the bottom paper off and put about a 1/4 inch from the top paper to be able to make a sky line.  Then removed both papers and started stamping.  So what do you think?

And all I did for the inside is stamp the beach looking shrubs.  You would think since I live at the beach, I would know what they are called, wouldn't you?

Thanks for stopping by and looking today.  I was motivated on Saturday and hope it helps to motivate you.  Enjoy your week.

French Foliage card

Hi everyone, I am back before a week is over.  But I made this card from a card I found on Pinterest which you can find here.  I went to my stamps and picked out one I had not used in a long time and then of course looked it up on Pinterest.  Isn't that easy.  My is a little different, but the idea is the same.  So funny because that next day my husband asked me if I had a card to send to a friend who was about to celebrate the one year anniversary of losing a brother.  I brought him this one along with some others and this was the one he chose.  My husband also lost his brother one year ago this week to a farming accident so when he found out about this person, he wanted to let him know he understood what he was going through.  I have the most thoughtful and compassionate husband (that is what God can do).
Here is the card!
And the inside!

Thanks for stopping by for the second time in a week.  I really appreciate your support and love!  Have a wonderful weekend.

1st Birthday Card and Fall Decorations Theme

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday and you are not too excited to see a post from me.  Life is just getting in the way of my crafting, but that is OK for this season of time.
Today is my granddaughter, Ansley's first birthday.  We went to VA this weekend to celebrate it with her, so I thought I would share some of the cute things that were done.  1st, I will share with you the cute card I did for her birthday.  This is the front.
And this is the inside.

Then here are some things my daughter did to decorate her house with a fall theme.  She used my bigshot and oval dies for most of it.

How cute is this pumpkin.  My daughter got her good crafting sense from me.  Actually I think she is better than I am.  
How cute are the leaves! 
And she made the little names for each dish!
How creative is that? 
She did such a great job! 
And now for the main attraction!  Our little Birthday girl, Ansley!  So, so sweet!
Hope you enjoyed my post for today and enjoy the rest of your week!
