Birdbrain and CTMH Class 3/27/2108

The box of cards for my friend, Christina Hor, at Cards for Little Hearts, is almost ready to send.
This card will be the last to go in the box, because I'm waiting for the liquid glass on Birdbrain's eyes to dry.
 The paper, cricut cut and sentiment are all from CTMH.
The Birdbrain image, which I colored and fussy cut, is a digital stamp by From the Heart.

heARTful stamping challenge

Wow!  Did this month fly by!  

Sorry I haven't been posting as much.  I've basically been inside the house organizing my craft stash while outside Mother Nature has given us 4 Noreasters, with a good 14" of snow this past Wednesday.  

I like to make something special for my friend, Chris, to use as inspiration for her  
Anything Goes
the last Sunday of the month.  Hope you'll be able to play along.

Here are two birthday cards using the Chelsea Gardens paper pack from CTMH.  I cased the layout from a card I spied on Pinterest.  

 The die cuts are from Spellbinders and LaLa Land.
The sentiment and enamel dots are also CTMH.
That little under over under thing with the center strip and die cuts is what attracted me to the card. 

Thanks for visiting.

I am entering the second card into these challenges:
Scrapy Land Challenge #86 - Anything Goes (I used dies from Spellbinders and La La Land.)
Creatilicious Challenge #135 - Anything Goes; optional Birthday

Easter Card & CTMH Class 3/20/2018

Here is what we worked on at Joyce's CTMH card class on Tuesday.
Bear in mind, that it started to snow shortly after class started.  Consequently, we worked at breakneck speed so we could be on our way before the roads got treacherous.
(Yeah, I stamped the Happy Easter crooked.)

The flip side of the paper is pink, which everyone else used.  This will go to SAS4Kids and they always need cards for boys.

To save time, this side step card came home in pieces.  I colored and assembled it here. 


Isn't this a darling bunny image? 
It's so sweet I wanted it to have center stage on the card.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #383 with Lacy Sunshine & buttons

Welcome to my Tuesday Throwdown Challenge post.  
Today I'm using Rory's April Showers May Flowers a coloring page/digi stamp by Lacy Sunshine 
for this center step card with buttons.

I thought a center step card was the best way to feature this darling image.  I'm sorry you can't see the tiny drops Liquid Glass on each of the raindrops and the puddle.
