MOJO Monday 467

MOJO Monday 467

It’s been a busy week here with my daughter visiting from out of state. Today I had to drop her at the airport and probably won’t see her again until next summer.

However, I did get a small chance to open the September Stamps of Life card kit and make this little Christmas card for the Mojo Monday Challenge. I love these designer papers! I made the tag in Silhouette Studio and added a little Stickles glitter glue to the snowflake embellishment to give it some sparkle.

I have my new friend Vinny to help me with my card making. He is an adorable little poodle mix dog that we recently adopted and he likes to be close. He’s such a sweetheart, I don’t mind. 

Take care and have a great week!

Send a Smile for Kids: Fall Colors Challenge

Good Morning! It’s a cool, rainy, late summer day in Wisconsin and I was in the mood for some card making for Send a Smile 4 Kids.  I just love this sweet image from Bugaboo Stamps and it was my first purchase from them. I couldn’t wait to download and use it.

I did a little wood grain embossing to go along with the fall theme. The sentiment stamp and background papers are from the August Stamps of Life card kit. I added a few EK Success stickers and some “pen stitching”  for a little embellishment. This was just a fun, simple little card that reminds me that fall is creeping up sort of fast.

Have a wonderful day!

Send a Smile 4 Kids: Cute Fall Cards Challenge

Today I’m “sending you a Hello from my heart” for the Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge. I used the Mojo Monday 464 sketch as inspiration for this card, and the Stamps for Life card kit for most of my supplies. The little fall mouse is from the Silhouette Store and is by Stinkin Cute Paper Piecings. Just love it! 

This was a wonderful sketch challenge, very fun to put together. Absolutely love visiting Mojo Monday each week. That’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope to see you soon!

What a cute fall mouse!

It’s All About the Happy: Simple Birthday Cards

Simple Birthday Cards with Stamps of Life

I had an amazingly fun time yesterday with my Stamps of Life Birthday Card kit. I did a little bit more challenging project HERE, but I decided I wanted to keep things sweet and simple for this little group of cards. It’s all about the “happy” right? 

I’m fortunate enough to have purchased some power crafting tools along the way, and I have a great time using them. Maybe I don’t use them enough. But sometimes you need a really quick card and I whipped these up pretty fast without having to haul out a whole bunch of stuff. Bright, cheerful and super easy, right? I had a couple of Dollar Tree chipboard stickers that I used on all but the middle card. Otherwise all the fun was from the card kit.

That’s it! Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and see you next week!
