Tea hugs


I can't seem to get enough of the Crate Paper Bloom collection :)

I fussy cut the cup and the tags from the pattern paper.  the rest of the bits were scraps from previous cards.  I mounted the cup and tags on foam squares.  Of course some messy stitching and staples for the finishing touch. 

I played along with a few challenges.  First one is Crazy 4 Challenges.... tea

Happy Mother's Day

I played along with a couple of challenges today.  I used the Floral Boutique collection to create this Mother's Day card

Not much to say, just added some papers, fussy cutting and messy stitching.

Tulip Time

I just received these gorgeous PTI tulips so I had to ink them up!

I used the Crate Paper Bloom collection then just did some stamping and layering.

The tulips are mounted on foam squares for some dimension.  The tags are cut from the pattern paper.

I am playing along in a few challenges:  Simon Says - Showers or Flowers

Inspired By... April Showers

Yep.... definitely still April here.  And still raining!  So I had to make the best of it and use these gorgeous boots as inspiration!  Would you wear these?!  I sure would!

I was inspired to dig out some older Crate Paper (Flea Market).... you know for these challenges... doesn't have to be a card... can be ANYTHING!... would love to see you play along.

I fussy cut the flowers and some of the tags from pattern paper.  Did some layering and stitching... and called it done :)  That sentiment... that is a sneak peek of a stamp set that will be available from CTMH in May... stay tuned :)

I am playing along with a couple of challenges.  

The sketch is from: 

Now I would love to see you play along.... are you inspired by the colors, flowers, boots, umbrellas... rain.... the sky is the limit ;)  And yes create anything!
