Grandma's Cookies Redo

 This was a card that my husband's grandmother saved. I placed a flower over the sentiment that said "grandma's never run out of hugs or cookies."  Now I'm able to use the card for someone else.

Giant Blue flower card

 This card was in a 5 x 7 that I cut down to a 4 x 5 1/2.  The only bummer to that is the patterned paper doesn't show the blue color which shows why I chose this flower. 

Thanks for looking

Scalloped Shape Mosaic

This is one of those sets that I bought because the example the demo did with it was really cute but when I got it home I didn't know what to do with it. I searched Pinterest and some  other sites however I felt as though the cards made we're all the same. 

 I made this one and submitted it to the Just Cards magazine where it was published. 


Thanks for looking.

Manly Monday Moustaches

I have a fun layout to share today that cracks me up. Here's a little back story for you; At our cottage my husband holds a weekend event called ⛰ Mountain Main Jr. Plus ➕ where the sons or daughters and their dads (No moms or wives allowed) come up for some fun and shenanigans.

 For this Mountain 🏔 Man, he bought them all stick-on mustaches  that everyone had to wear for the whole weekend. I always make them get a group picture with and it looks like they're having fun. I'm just glad everyone plays along and there's no whining.

All the patterned paper is by Die Cuts With s View and I cut out the title with my Cricut with the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes cartridge in Cricut Craft Room where I welded the letters together.

Thanks for looking. 👓.

Lighthouse ATC

Here  is another ATC that I made with a piece of fabric. After I ironed the lighthouse image onto white card stock I added a vellum sentiment.  It was easiest to hide the adhesive by wrapping the vellum around to the back of the card. I finished by rounding the corners.

The stamps range from Deep Red stamps (Champagne bubbles) to Hero Arts ( Love flower and sentiment) and  rest of the flowers are by Stampin Up.
