Sweet Sunday Sketch 105

I've been in a small crafting slump. This is my first card in about a week and a half. Good thing I didn't make the resolution to post everyday or I would have failed. But I have stuck to my 1 post per week resolution so far.

For this card I followed the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. The cardstock is Bazzill, the designer papers are DCWV Linen Closet matstack. I used a nestability behind the flower. The flower is from the Cricut Lite Bloom cartrdge and the swirly thing {lol} is from Home Decor. I finished it up by using pop dots for the nesti and flower and a Happy Birthday stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stylish Blogger Award

Back in January, I received this blogger award from Jenny . I cannot believe that I completely forgot all about it. A the time I was really busy at work and thought to myself, I will thank her over the weekend...but I forgot {sad face}. So I figure it is better to be late than never...right? Cool beans {did I just type that??} So below are the rules.

  • Thank the blogger who gave you the award.
  • Share 8 things about yourself.
  • Pass on the award to 8 bloggers you've recently discovered.
  • Notify those 8 bloggers.

About myself {if I can think of 8 things}:

1. I would do crafting full time if it could pay the bills.

2. I'm a homebody.

3. I'm for team Edward.

4. I Love Indiana Jones Movies.

5. I'd marry Harrison Ford {even though he's older than my parents}.

6. I hoard Designer Paper.

7. I wish I knew how to use Copic markers right.

8. I'm so happy I'm done with this part!!!

My 8 newly discovered blogs:

Thanks again to Jenny,

Mojo Monday 177 - It's a Contest Week

I had a ton of fun making this card. I went all out with the bling as well! This giraffe from the Create a Critter cartridge is soo adorable and going with the Valentines theme, I made him/her Pink {woo hoo}. Plus I just had to add the google eyes...what Create a Critter critter doesn't need these??? The stitched felt ribbon is a find from last years Valentines clearance at Michaels then I added those cute button brd. The flowers are by the Paper Studio which I bought at Hobby Lobby. The heart and "love" brads I purchased years ago on clearance...not sure from where.

Wish me luck!!
PS: I've never won a challenge before...maybe this will be my first {fingers crossed}

Congratulations - Grand Baby

For this simple card to give to a co-worker I used my new Nate's ABCs Cricut Cartridge. I also used the Congrats stamp set for the sentiment inside. I did have to add "grand" since this is to welcome in a Grand Baby.

Thanks for looking,

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 103

Here is my take on this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch. I actually cheated a little. I already had the stamp all colored, but did not know how I was going to use it. I actually had the card all done except for the stamp before I decided to use it. I might move the sentiment to the inside of the card. I'm not sure I like it on the outside.

Mojo Monday 176

Here is my take on this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. And yes it's another Valentines Day card. The sketch was pretty simple so my card is as well. I've had these heart brads for quite a while and when I picted out the paper and was deciding how else to decorate this card, I just had to use these.
