Surprise Birthday Hop for LeAnne!


Hi friends!  Instead of a Christmas card today I have a birthday card to share for LeAnne!  The sweet Lesley from Always Playing with Paper planned a Surprise Birthday hop for LeAnne.   Everyone is welcome to make a card for her and add it to the linky on the Merry Monday Challenge Blog.


Lesley shared LeAnne's favorite color is blue so I knew I had to make a monochromatic card in blue.  I actually used Tropical Teal from PTI.  The background stamp is Background basics: Venice and the sentiment is from Birthday Classics: July.

Now it is time to hop along.  You can start at the Merry Monday Challenge Blog or hop on to Debbie Henderson's blog.

Make sure you visit LeAnne's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!

Have a very Happy Birthday LeAnne!!!!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Merry Monday #118

Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Lori challenges us to use Buttons and ribbon on our cards.

I usually don't like adding real buttons to my Christmas cards because they add extra bulk and that means more postage.  I pulled out my Sweet Buttons Embosslit to make my button.

I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

StampNation Beach Vacation Blog Hop



Hi everyone!  Today we are kicking off the StampNation Summer Beach Vacation event with a Blog Hop. Each of the StampNation Dream Team members, along with some of our crafty friends, are hopping along sharing cards inspired by our first challenge, "Beach Style", as well as a peek at our favorite projects from the event!

Here's my card for the first challenge:


I used the fun Joy Ride die from My Favorite Things to create my yellow car.  Love all the little details with this die.  The back seat is filled with items for the beach, beach ball, flip flops, sunscreen, towel, book, etc...  Is this what your car looks like when you head for the beach?  The "sand" is a piece of cork cut out using the Stitched Borders 1 Dies from Pretty Pink Posh.

Prizes!!!!
Make sure you leave comments at each of the blogs listed below to be eligible to win...

Merry Monday #117


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Deanne challenges us to use Sequins on our cards.
 

I used a stamp set (Silent Night- PTI) that I have had for a while but have only used the sentiments.  
I love the flourish that comes in the set but have never inked it up until now. 
 I don't know what I was waiting for?  :) 
The Raspberry Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish it off nicely, don't you think?

I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
