Lettuce Celebrate!

 Hello friends, and welcome!
Here's a cute, punny card using
a new stamp/die set I recently purchased:

Adorable mouse wearing overalls? Yes please!!
I'm actually a bit jealous of this wee mouse, because I'm
just itching to get my vegetable garden started, but I know
it's still too soon to do so. LOL!

I chose green cardstock as my "ground" for this little
gardening scene. The yellow/orange die cut circle I like to
think of as the sun. 🌞
Another sentiment from the set is used on the inside:

Well, that's it for now. I really need to get my butt in
gear and make some Easter cards now. No pressure! LOL!
Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Irish you a Hoppy Birthday

 Hello and welcome!
Anybody else dragging from losing an hour of sleep? 😴
It probably didn't help that I stayed up late reading a book. LOL!
Anyway, I'm here to share a card I made for 
a few challenges.

Gotta love a beer themed punny sentiment!
Here's the inside:

I have a friend whose birthday is March 17th, so I challenge
myself to send her a card that gives a nod to that holiday.
That's it for now. Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Hey there snarky peeps!
The latest challenge at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS
starts today, and the theme is one near and dear to our hearts: SNARK!
Let your freak flag fly and show us your sarcastic creations!
Here's what I created:

My design is based off of The Paper Players sketch #678.
(And because I didn't pay attention, the challenge ended yesterday. DOH!)
I stamped and colored the coffee lady with Prismacolor pencils, then
stamped the sentiment from my very own stamp set: Hot Mess

I hope that you'll find some time this month to play along in our
snarky challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
For more amazing snarkiness, please do yourself a favor and
visit the blogs of my Sisters and our reigning Queen, Karen, and leave
some bloggy love!
Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a fabulous day!

 Hello there! I'm back with my second post today.
This time around, I have a Christmas card to share:

The current challenge at Just Us Girls prompts us to CASE
one of the amazing projects created by the design team.
As soon as I saw Carol Mayne's card, I knew I had to
create my own spin on it using these NBUS layering stencils.
I loved the pink die cut HB2U on her card and the stenciling
in the background. The layering stencil I used
made it easy to mesh those together.

Here's the finished inside:

This was a fun challenge, and it allowed me to use a new-to-me
stencil set that I pulled from the NBUS pile on my floor.
(Come on, we all have those piles somewhere! LOL!)
That's all for now. Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

Beary HB Wishes

 Hello crafty friends and welcome!
Happy Friday and happy first day of March.
Bring on Spring!!
(Of course, we had sleet mixed with some snow this morning. Sigh.)
To combat the winter blues, here's a
cute critter card:

Love this new bear image stamp! So cute! The sentiment
probably took longest to stamp, as I "Frankensteined" three
different stamps together to create it.

Here's the finished inside:

It's been a minute since I've made a slimline card. I really
should make more of this size. 😊
That's it for this post, but I'll be back in a bit
with another one soon.
Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
