Loving Aqua lately...kids where away...so the mom could play :)

 PapertreyInc Delightful Dahlia was inspired by a Stamp TV Bold Blooms technique video I watched recently (skip the ad).
 Should have done the Imagine in white but it's clear...kinda ironic :)
Ellie like Zebra and I am not a fan so I played with it a little.
 the picture came out dark...sorry...this is with Rosie Posie from PapertreyInc and the Rosie Posie Step 2 set to match it
This was done with Wildflower Garden stamp set by Papertreyinc with a technique of using the die markers then spritz the stamp with water before you press it onto the paper.

Card making fun

 Birthday...Dunkin' Donuts color theme for my coffee drinking bestie!
LOVE LOVE LOVE PTI Dies and colors!!!  And the stamps too!
I used this Sketched Shapes
Die for the Banners
And this Cover plate circles Die for the circles
Actually submitted this one for the Make it Monday Challenge!
 Make a bunch and give as a gift...have baby/bridal shower guests fill out their addresses for the new mom/bride to help her get them out and lessen the burden :)
 PTI Hexagon Happy :)

Crafty Valentine's 2013

Crafty session with the girls...had to make this even though it's not exactly for Valentine's Day.  Papertrey Inc die cut and screw eyelets to adhere it to a black background.  3 philip's head and one flat head...ha ha
this Cat card is Ellie's creation...I taught her how to do a mask technique...she liked it :)  she loves cats these days :)

This one is slated for someone this year...but not exactly sure if he is my Valentine or not...we shall see.

Go get crafty!
Create from within!
