Baby Boy Card

Today, after a week of barely crafting, I finally had time and felt like working on something. I was in need of a baby card and saw Lori Whitlock's new peek a boo cards so I bought one to use. It was sooo simple and I was able to get rid of some of my stash, a goal for 2017! It felt really good to produce a cute card with just stuff I had laying around.

Paper and Stickers: Echo Park Bundle of Joy set
Buttons:Button Ups by Sticko
Waxy Flax: Scrapworks in spring leaf color
Inside Stamp: Welcome to the World from Mama Elephant New Family Stamp Set

Uplifting Hugs

Today I changed gears a bit. Cancer is a nasty word but one that several of my friends are facing. I made this card today with one in mind and as I made it I prayed for them. I am thrilled with how it turned out.
Stamps- Newton's Nook Support
Inks- Tim Holtz distress in Worn Lipstick, Orange Marmalade, and Cracked Pistachio. Momento Tuxedo Black for the lettering and the cat.
Prismacolor Premiere Pencils for the coloring on the cat.
Sequins are from Dollar Tree.
Stitched dies are from Lawn Fawn
Cardstock I have no idea. The pink is a shimmery heavy weight.

MFT Snuggle Bunnies

First off, Happy 2017 to everyone. I haven't posted here in a while but I am going to try to be better about that this year. Facebook seems to be my favorite way to share but that doesn't work for everything so my goal is to be a better creator and blogger in the new year :)

I treated myself to a HUGE shopping spree using my Christmas and Birthday money. I splurged at Simon Says Stamp and My Favorite Things, and well you gotta spend at Amazon too. Today's card is a sketch challenge from My favorite Things and I used their set Snuggle Bunnies and their Rectangle Diagonal Stitch In and Out dies. It is really a special card for a special person who needs a cute pick me up right now!
