3rd Mother's Day Card

No I do not have 3 mothers. Just one and a mother in law but I had sooo many beautiful mother's day cards I wanted to make so I have made 3....and.....I am not sure if that's it yet!!! I found one like this on Pinterest and figured I could reproduce it so I did. I am using it as my 2nd entry at Catch the Bug May Anything Goes.


Here is a card I made using another one of the new images I just got at Bugaboo Stamps.  I used the sketch at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenges....which by the way all 3 are right up my alley!!! Bugaboo is also the sponsor over there so I figured I should definitely join in. Finally I am entering Catch the Bug May Anything Goes. TFL and have a good Sunday - the sun just came out so we are going to get outside and enjoy it....

If Mother's were Flowers...

I recently got a few new images from Bugaboo so I decided to colour this one up and use it for a Mother's Day card.  The sentiment mom and the one inside (If Mother's were Flowers I'd Pick You) are from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I am entering my card at Sketches by Carly #55 where Bugaboo is the sponsor. I am also entering the challenge at Dutch Dare Card Challenge #163 - Spring Has Sprung (Mother's Day in the spring.....flower growing and being picked). - Bugaboo is also the sponsor. Thanks for looking!

Mother's Day Handprint Crafts

One of my favourite challenge blogs is Stitches n Scraps Crafting with Kids cause it encourages quality time with my kids doing something I love....crafting! I enjoy checking out and choosing different ideas from Pinterest and then making them happen with one (or as usual ALL) of my 4 kids. The current theme was 'make something for mom' so we made something for mom and grandmas. The first craft is mom's handprint and then the kids handprint on top....a very sweet keepsake if you ask me!!! The 2nd craft I chose was a flower using the child's handprint and then painting on a stem, leaves and your own personal message...I may even reuse this one at a preschool playgroup I run closer to Mother's Day. Thanks for looking and hope you are inspired to craft with your kids......they are only young and eager for so long!

A Bugaboo Easter Card

Such a sweet image from Bugaboo......I had to make another card! The sketch is for a challenge I just found Stella Says Sketch 107. I really should have used these sketches before since we are frequent visitors to the Bugaboo sites. I used our corner punch, which is one of my favourite tools. I just love the extra something it gives the paper. So that is why I am entering Simon Says Stamps Favourite Tool Challenge. Finally I am entering at Catch the Bug Challenge - Spring/Easter and Prairie Fairy Fridays - Anything Goes. TFL and HAPPY EASTER to you!!!

In the mood to make a card

I got some colouring tips from my card making buddy last week and so I decided to try it out for myself. After a few attempts I am semi-happy with the final product I have here. Unfortunately I do not have the awesome markers, the time or the patience necessary to do an amazing job but I made due with what I do have! I popped up the flower pot but only because I really liked what I did on my first attempt and had to salvage some of my time spent on colouring that image! The image is from Bugaboo. I used Sketch #201 at Sketch Saturday and am entering the following challenges:

Catch the Bug - Spring/Easter
Fairy Fun Fridays - Spring
Incy Wincy Designs - Pastel
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Tender Thoughts - sorry this is actually Miss E's post so I also put it on her blog!

A Day for Daisies is our sponsor at Little Hands Challenge Blog. I chose this digi called Tender Thoughts for our Easter challenge because Easter is not only about bunnies and egg hunts. It is about Jesus who died on the cross on Good Friday and rose to heaven in the Ressurection. I imagine this girl praying to Jesus and remembering him on Easter.  I am also entering my card in these challenges:

Jellypark Juniors - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Catch the Bug Challenge Blog - Easter/Spring Project
Craft Your Passion Kids - Spring

TFL and I hope you will join us at Little Hands Challenge Blog cause I love seeing all the kids who enter.
