Nordic Butterfly Wishes ~ Poppystamps

Hello friends ~  I'm bringing you some Joyful Nordic Wishes today using stamps & dies from Poppystamps.  I love the lacy background and how it's softened by the layer of vellum.

The Nordic Butterfly is beautiful layered and popped up on foam dots.  This is part of their spring release.  One you won't want to miss!

Feel free to stop over at Poppystamps for more details, if you wish.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Happiness ~ Double D Challenges

Good morning friends ~ Double D Challenges is starting up a new challenge and this one is one that I think everyone should enter.  

The theme is "Patterned Paper".  Now who doesn't have a pile of that sitting around???  I know I have plenty so I was happy to use some up for this challenge.

Not only did I use up some patterned paper but also this lovely preprinted die cut.  It came already glittered, so this card came together so quickly.

The floral paper I used on this is ages old but still so very pretty.

Dig out your scrapbook paper friends and join in on the fun. Here's a link to the Double D Challenge blog where you'll see more amazing inspiration from my talented team mates.  

Here's the inspiration board:

And here's what you could win if you play along:

Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by!

A Very Special Birthday

Hi friends.  Today's card was made for a very, very dear friend of mine to celebrate her special day.

I used Altenew's Flower Bunch Stencil Set in soft pastel colors to create the pretty bouquet.  

Once the stenciling was done, I ran it through my die cutting machine with an older, retired Sizzix music note embossing folder.

The sentiment is from Gina K Stamps and was gifted to me by my dear friend Marcia from Marcia's Stampin' Pad.  Thanks Marcia for the lovely stamps!  Happy Birthday Marcia!  I hope you enjoy your very special day today!

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Treat Boxes

Hello friends~ I've been counting down the days until Valentine's Day.  I don't think I've ever shared as many Valentine crafts on my blog as I've shared with you this year.   My craft room needs a day of cleaning and reorganizing. 

I made some cute favor boxes for my kids and their spouses, my hubby and his mom, using Heart Hugs Honey Cute Dies from Honey Bee Stamps.

The box die is an older die from Quickutz. 

Gladly using up some older design paper from my stash. 
 The girls get the foxes....

...and the guys get the bears.

Wishing you the very best day!
