2 Share Tuesday!! :)

**edited to add my circle card is done using the wild card cartridge for my cricut! Thanks for the sweet comments on it!**

Happy SUNNY COLD Tuesday!!! :) - if your anywhere near me that is! LOL!! I love the sun.. so I wont complain.. but BRRR.. it was chilly this AM... :)

ANYWAY.. I have 2 shares for ya today! First up I have been wanting to make something like THESE .. that Betsy shared for awhile now.. so last night after the FABULOUS PTI blog hop.. I went up and worked on this little set.. inspired by the challenge at PTI I also did up the envelope!! :) (I just cut one of mine a bit larger then in half .. then sewed all around so it is nice and sealed when I put in the gift card!)

I am so gonna make more of these little cuties!! :) The hearts are done using some glimmer mist paper I made up with some of my new colors (this is my new addiction.. making fun paper and cutting shapes! LOL!) Used some BG (bittersweet from last year) and of course PTI.. ribbon, and stamp! I am LOVING my Tim Holtz ~ Antique Linen distress ink.. must order a refill! LOL!! Using it on EVERYTHING it seems! and of course PEARLS! Colored with my copics to match!! :)

Next is a little baby card for my cousin.. they just had a little girl.. NOW I had another idea in mind.. but it didnt look the way I had hoped so I SWITCHED to this.. and was happy I did.. again using PTI!!!

LOVE the button sets.. and my spica pens.. I WISH you could see them in the photograph.. they add such a nice little touch of sparkle!! (just and FYI for PTI fans.. the green (mint I believe) in set 2.. looks FABULOUS with spring moss ink! :) Lots more Antique Linen on this!! and PEARLS.. I think I use those on 90% of my cards.. LOL!! I LOVE them! Gonna send it off today! Hope she likes it!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a GREAT day!!

Sunday Challenges!

Happy Sunday!!! :) Hope you are all having a WONDERFUL weekend!! Ours has been nice.. no major plans.. got stuff done around here and got some CREATIVE time in!!

So next week will start my first week with the PIO DT.. I am so EXCITED.. so EXCITED I decided to play along with Team B this week at PIO to practice getting challenges in... well I got 3 today! :) PIO (3 different ribbon), Papertake Weekly (sketch), and Little Red Wagon (Polka Dots).. These were some new places for me! I plan to go back and play along AGAIN!! :)


Here is my take-

See the RIBBON... wanna know a secret... it is all the same width.. BUT I needed the brown wider (so I cut it down the middle used my scor tape and separated it.. added the green down the middle and you cant tell it is cut!)- the yellow dotted I needed smaller.. so I put scor tape down one side.. and folded it! VIOLA! Used what I had and made it work!!! :)

The butterfly is more of my glimmer mist paper.. love making that stuff!!

CS, Ribbon, Stamps all from PTI.... PP is new BG origins!

THANKS for stopping by!!!

Happy Monday!

Happy RAINY Monday!(if your me anyway!! lol!) Hope your weekend was FABULOUS!!

I have a quick couple shares for you today! From Amanda and Me! :)
First up my girl! I LOVE she is so creative.. and LOVES to craft with me! I HOPE it is something we can always share!

She LOVES to work with clay.. and her friend LOVES cupcakes.. so Amanda made her the cute little cupcake you see with the birthday card! She also made the card. (I helped put it together .. she did have a cupcake to finish! LOL!)

Then I put the box together for her .. yes my FAVORITE template.. Captured Card Case from PTI Amanda picked the colors and paper.. then she decorated the top!! I think she did a FABULOUS job!

My Turn...
Here is my SILs card.. Used some Digi Paper (Little Joys) from the Sweet Shop for this and the snowflake is from Accent Essentials Cricut Cart.. Cut 3 different sizes... topped with a PTI button, and stamp also PTI!
Card size 4.5 X 4.5 inches

THEN I whipped up this.. Amanda told me 3 times how much she LOVED Aunt Kimmies card.. so I SURPRISED her last week with this in her lunch! (the TURKEY cheats and peeks even before we leave.. so she knew! SIGH!)
Card Size 3 X 3 inches

Isnt it FUNNY both cards are the SAME color.. but photographed so DIFFERENT!!!

Thanks for stopping by... I am off to CREATE!!! :) (that is code for CLEAN if you my hubby is reading this.. honest honey... LOL!!0
have a GREAT Day!

Quick Share-

Hi There Bloggy Friends! How is your week going? GREAT I hope! I have been TRYING to get some creative time in! I have a few challenges to get done and ISSUE!!

For this card I was able to use THREE challenges! :)
Dawns Color Challenge, Wild Wednesday @ ScrappinMojo and Pile It On # 30

This card is a card I NEVER EVER want to make again... it is for Amanda's former 1st grade teacher... her baby boy was due in about 2.5 weeks.. but NYE he was stillborn.. my heart breaks for their sweet family (for any family that has to live through this.)

I had the VISION for what I wanted the card to look like.. but was unsure of the colors.. well enter Dawns Color Challenge.. it worked out perfect! For Wild Wed. the challenge was to make an embellie with LAYERS! (I have another couple to share.. in a couple days!), Pile it on was something clear!

The butterfly is made with glimmer mist paper I made.. spraying, Blue, Yellow and Brown.. with pearl over the top.. so pretty IRL.. hard to photograph!

Thank you for stopping by.. and if your the praying type could you keep the Hill family in your prayers.. Thank You!
Have a GREAT day!
