Sympathy Card & Birthday Card

Yesterday's project was created out of necessity but inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest


 The inside sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up.  
The rest of the stamps are from Close to My Heart.
Ten stamps total.
Peeking out from underneath the card is a matching envelope.

Challenges:

Speaking of peeking... here is today's project, a birthday card for my 92 years young, Godmother.
Where she lives, it is not unusual for a bear to visit.
You'll find a similar card here on Pinterest.
 These are CTMH stamps.  
The wood grained paper is from one of the new CTMH paper packs.  
I love the little design across the bottom.

In a Nutshell House Mouse Card

Not a very elaborate Mother's Day card, but my mother liked it.  Face it, when it comes to Mother's Day cards, 
Moms like anything you make for them.  
I think it is some kind of law.

Challenges:
House Mouse Challenge #291 - AG; optional not square

Mojo Monday Birthday Card

Today was a busy day.
I taught a card class this morning and then we had lunch together.  I always follow that with a stop at one of my favorite stores.
Then, once home, there are things to put away 
before I have time to "play". 

Mojo Monday Sketch #515 gave me the framework for the fun birthday card I made using a cute image from Whimsey Stamps called Cupcake Treat, which I colored with colored pencils.

 

Challenges:
Crafter's Castle Challenge #17 - AG option "Show us what you color with" I used colored pencils.

Here are the cards the girls made at this morning's card class:



Thanks so much for stopping by.

Joyful Stars Close to My Heart May Blog Hop

Welcome to the May
Close to My Heart Joyful Stars Blog Hop.
 
Have some fun hopping between the blogs of this group of talented Close to My Heart consultants, and me, where we share creative projects using CTMH products.
The new catalog is out so I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of new products.
 This past Saturday I attended Joyce Houck's annual Spring Fling, a fun get together where Joyce introduces some of the new items in the catalog.  This is one of the cards we made.  The yellow flower and green leaves and stems were already die cut for us.  We simply stamped and colored them.  Then, one by one, we cut an opening in the front of our cards using the same dies.  Then we glued the flower to the inside of the card.

I saved the pieces that I removed from the card front, stamped them and tucked them away to make this card.

The papers I've used are from the True Love and the Sweet Girl Paper Packs.  The flower Stamp Set and matching Thin Cuts are called Floral Delivery.
If you'd like to see the other cards we made at the Spring Fling, 
just click here.
Now, since this is a blog hop,

you might have arrived here from  Marie Flayer's blog.
Your next stop is Andrea Sherman's blog.
The hop is circular.
If you are just starting here,
simply continue hopping until you find your way back,
making the full circle.

Cards 4 Galz Challenge #96 - Recipe: 1 image; 1 sentiment; 2 patterned papers; 3 embellishments

Tea-rrific Card

These coffee/tea cards are addictive.  It must be the caffeine!  I am trying to prep for a class on Monday and had one lonely strip of double sided paper leftover.  Not any more!

The tea pot die cut is from IO; the sentiment stamp is CTMH.
