Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #9 Outdoor Critters

Ch# 9 Outdoor Critters
Begins: Monday, Apr 29
Ends: Sunday, May 12
Prize MFPS "Tweet That"
(must have a USA address)

Winner announced in the WINNERS Page Tab

Here's what I created for this challenge:
I saw this wrapping paper and thought our nephew
would love it! Then of course I needed to make a card 
to go with it. I used the Dyno-mite Birthday 
cutting file from Scraptastical Kreations. I changed
the spots and made a spiked under layer to match the 
wrapping paper. I also added the gifts. This 
file also comes with balloons that I did not use.

I hope you enjoy my project!

Butterfly Hop

Thank you for fluttering by today and seeing all the butterflies
we have in this hop. These crafters have preformed butterfly
magic again with their creations and I hope you enjoy
looking at the beauty of these creations.

Jearise from is our hostess
today and she has a butterfly filled gift for one lucky visitor
today so please make sure you begin
at her blog to find out how to enter the drawing.

Here is my little bit of butterfly magic for today...
For my card I used the butterfly background
from the Silhouette Online Store, by Hero Arts.
I painted the card with watercolors and then glued the
white background over it. The Hello is cut from a
font I have. I added a little American Crafts glitter tape
for a fun finish,

Thank you so much for joining us today we
hope you enjoyed fluttering through!

Green is good Blog Hop!

Green is good Blog Hop!

 Something recycled, something re-purposed, whether it’s a milk jug
turned in to a scoop, or a tin can made in to a pencil holder. Maybe
your kids planted some trees to help the environment, or maybe
you did. There are tons of ways to get greener in everyday life.
Today we are showing off our creations to celebrate Earth Day 2013.
If you’re just starting here make sure to head over to the beginning
at My Life in Arts’ n Crafts’. I hear she’s giving away some goodies!

This is what I started with :
This is what I made:

I covered my box with papers from the DCWV Girlhood
Stack and Mod Podge

scraps and for patterned paper I used

Creative Cutting Challenge "Baby"

Time for another Creative Cutting Challenge!
This time we made baby items! 
I love mine so much I had a hard time 
waiting to share..

I made this adorable BABY banner using 
Baby Set by Creative Pointe, available at
the Cut and Create store to make all my cute
accents. The banner flags are from the Banners
and the fabulous letters are from Lettering Delights
and are called Lockets of Love Letters
I did not want the same baby banner I have
made several times before so I decided to 
hang the cute lil baby icons as charms from
ribbon throughout the banner.

Be sure to head over to the Creative Cutting
Challenges blog and enter your baby project!
