PTI May Blog Hop & Make-It Monday Challenge

Good morning friends.  I'm still alive, just super busy with life.  I found time earlier this week to make this card for the PTI Blog Hop and Make-it Monday Challenge.  
I used an old piece of gingham design paper and added stamps from Stitching Garden and a sentiment from Brushed Birds.

Our weather here has been sunny and warm so I'm spending lots of time outside, playing in the flower beds.  Spring is my favorite time of the year!
 Remember to thank our vets this weekend.  Pray for all those who serve our country and for those who've lost loved ones.
Thanks for stopping by!

Under the Wire

I'm getting two cards in under the wire for two challenges that are closing in just a few hours.  Why do I do that??

This card is for the challenge going on at Inspired By All the Little Things.  I used Stitching Garden from PTI.  
 I was clearly inspired by the barnwood background and beautiful flowers.

This card  was made using the colors from The Paper Players.  I used Orchids by Cottage Cutz and a verse from PTI.
I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
AAA Cards ~ Inspired By Nature

Country Style Flower Sprays

Good morning ~  I'm playing along with this month's Create Along With Us with Papertrey Ink.  I was inspired by the amazingly talented Michelle Leone and her cards found here.

I used Gran's Garden for the floral sprays.  Pretty papers from chicken Scratch Gingham Paper Collection and the Polka Dot Basics II Impression Plate for the background.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet as Honey

Good morning paper crafting friends ~  I've been enjoying playing with these darling bee sets from Honey Bee Stamps.

They have a Honey Cuts Die that cuts these cute Bee Hive shaped cards and you can choose whether you want a door to open to reveal a little surprise or you can leave the front of the card solid.
 On this card I chose to have it open to show off this happy little honey bee from Happy Fall Y'all

There's also a Honey Bee Hive Stencils & Mask set that includes 4 stencils that you can use to add more detail and color to your bee hive.  I used the Hello Honey Cuts on this card to create the triple layered sentiment.  Love that!

 I wanted to use just the stencil on this card along  with the Hello Honey Cuts to create a hidden message. 

 Again, I used the bees and sunflower from 

 And one final project using this set is a Bible Journaling entry:
I stenciled the Bee Hive using the Honey Bee Hive Stencils & Mask onto a piece of vellum and used different alphabet and sentiment stamps to create the verse.

I'll be entering one of these cards to the following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge ~ Honey, I'm Home
AAA Cards ~ Inspired By Nature
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
