Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #1

Hey crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a fabulous Friday!
Did you guys hear the news? Lawn Fawn now has a challenge blog!!
I love Lawn Fawn and was so excited to hear this news and create something to play along!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #1 is all about Birthdays, 
in celebration of them turning 7 this month.

I pulled out my Lovable Legends stamp set to create a card for the challenge. 

I colored that sweet little Big Foot in with my Copics and then fussy cut him out. I used the Stitched Hillside Borders to cut out my hill from some Rainbow Plaid paper and stamped my greeting with some black ink. I added a cloud from the Puffy Cloud Borders to the top and then added a balloon from the party Balloons and simply drew in the balloon string. I decided he needed a party hat so I stamped the hat onto a scrap piece of plaid paper and fussy cut that out as well. I added my image panel onto a piece of polka dot vellum and then popped it up with foam tape to my Kraft cardbase. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today and taking a peek at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

If You Give A Crafter A Cookie #65

Hey crafty friends!
 I hope you are having a terrific Thursday!! 
Today starts a new challenge over at the 

We have two sponsors for challenge #65 and they are....

Here is a peek at the cookie inspiration photo for this challenge:

*this is not my photo*
Aren't these cookies cute???!!!

For some reason, I saw the dogs and the fire hydrant and my mind automatically went to a firestation dog. Might have something to do with my son being a firefighter I guess lol! I decided to use the cute little dalmation from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge and make a fun little thank you card. 

I cut my cute little dalmation out at 3", glued all his pieces together (there aren't many), gave him some cheeks and set him aside while I built my card base. I used a piece of red cardstock and layered a piece of black cardstock on top. I cut out some yellow polka dot paper from a circle die and cut it off so it lined up with my black cardstock. I added my doggy with some foam tape and added some white doodles. I stamped my greeting onto more of the polka dot paper and cut one end at an angle and also popped that up with some foam tape. Easy peasy but I love all the critters on the Create A Critter cartridge and loved using it again (it's been awhile lol)

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 

Today I have a sweet little Hello card to share.

I like having cards on hand to mail out and hopefully brighten someone's day just because. It's always nice to get something other than bills in the mailbox right? For this card, I found some pretty papers from an older Doodlebug stack and let those be the inspiration for my card. I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles to cut out my floral paper as well as the orange paper. I then used one of the borders from the Scallop Borders set to create a fun scallop on the orange. I layered them together, added some ribbon and glued them onto my card base. I used the Stitched Oval Dies to cut out a white oval and cut out the smile from the same orange cardstock using the Smile Dies and placed that onto my oval. I finished off my greeting by using the Smile stamp set. I had some little flower sequins in my stash that I thought went perfectly, so I added a few with some orange stickles in the centers. This card was so super simple but I really like how it turned out. It also kinda reminds me of the 70's lol!

You Warm My Heart

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday!
Today I have a card to share with you that I made with a few challenges in mind. 

The first challenge was for the sketch challenge over at 

The second challenge is for the 

Here is a look at the cards that I made.

I love Doodlebug papers but i have always had a hard time trying to figure out what to do with the little cut aparts that come in the 6x6 paper pads. They are so little so I normally just add some to my project life albums but the sketch over at Sketch N Scrap was a lightbulb moment for me! lol! I created two card bases out of some Kraft cardstock and die cut 2 white scallop rectangles. I figured while I had everything out, I would try and make 2 cards. (My card stash is getting a little low). I cut out some patterned papers, adhered them to my white card layer and added a bit of ribbon before adding it to my card base. I finished off the cards with a couple of the little cut aparts popped up with foam tape and jazzed them up with just a bit of glossy accents. Oh! and of course a bow :) 

Here is a look at my second card, which I thought went perfectly for the challenge over at

Both cards were made with the same materials but I love how they are the same yet different :) 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

Supply List:
--Cardstock: Kraft (Recollections), White (Georgia Pacific)

Stick It Down March Sketch Challenge

Hi crafty friends! 
I hope your Monday is off to a marvelous start! 

 Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the Stick It Down Challenge Blog
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog. They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right?? 
The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals of the design team's interpretations throughout the month. Today the card team designers are showing what they created for this month's card sketch.

 Here is another look at the card sketch for March 2017:

and here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:

This card was pretty simple to make. I used the Text tool in my Cricut Design Space and wrote out "HAPPY" five times and then cut it out with my Cricut Explore. I placed some purple cardstock behind it and filled in the letters with a little bit of wink of stella for some shimmer. I placed it on to my plaid card and stamped out the 'birthday" onto a piece of scrap cardstock and popped it up with some foam tape. I added a few purple sequins and my card was done. Super fast and easy but I think it looks pretty cool!

I hope you will stop by the Stick It Down Challenge blog and take a peek at what my design team sisters created with the sketch. I hope you are inspired to join us! I would love for you to link up so I could take a peek at what you created :)
