Happy Birthday Card

I love the way this card turned out with the soft blue colors.  I don't usually use preprinted papers for my focal point on my cards but I do love how this one turned out. After printing the paper, I diecut it to fit my card.  Since this card is a birthday card for a friend, I added music notes as if the bird was singing Happy Birthday.
This is my DT project for Aud Sentiments.  It's our first challenge of 2018 and the theme is Anything Goes.  We are sponsored by We Are 3 Digi Shop.  They provided the team with a sentiment bundle, a paper bundle and digi images.  For the inside of my card, I added the Happy Birdie image and colored it with copics.

Magical Day

Happy New Year!!
It's hard to believe that it is already 2018.  I hope this year brings you joy, happiness, good health and lots of love.

I am happy to announce that this is my very first DT project for 

The challenges are always Anything Goes as long as you use pattern paper.
I used 2 pattern papers for this challenge that have been in my paper stash for a long time.  It's always nice to use up supplies you already own. I kept this card simple and free of embellishments since I made it for my Brother-in-law's birthday.  Masculine cards can be a challenge.

Three Kings

I hope that you enjoyed your holidays.  We had a wonderful Christmas with our friends and family. It seems that so much time is spent on getting ready for Christmas and then it's over in a flash.  Our family leaves up our Christmas decor until after Jan 6th so we can celebrate Epiphany.

This is my DT project for the Merry Christmas Challenge blog.  The theme is always Anything Christmas but we do have an optional theme of The Nativity for this challenge.  I chose to use this stamp from Magnolia to make another ornament for my Christmas tree that features the Nativity.

Mickey and Minnie Gift Tags

I made a super simple set of gift tags for the gifts for my daycare kids.  I found Mickey and Minnie Mouse wrapping paper so made the tags to match.  I kept it simple because I know the kids are really more interested in the gift and not the wrapping.
The tags were made using the Mickey Font Cricut cartridge.

Dreaming Of A White Christmas


This is my last DT card for Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Challenge Extra for 2017. You still have time to join in our last challenge of the year. I kept this card flat and free of bulky embellishments so that I could mail it more easily.
The image is from Conie Fong and I had fun coloring her in winter colors. I don't know about you but I like snow but not for Christmas. I think the snow can wait until after all of the holiday traveling.
