Springtime Cards

Here is an example of a quick and easy card I used recently at a workshop.  I saw this done by a Close To My Heart consultant, and when I looked for her again to give credit, I couldn't find, if you know who the orignator of this design is...PLEASE leave a comment.  Everyone loved making these -- it was a really fun day! Hope you like them!
These cards were done using the Cuttlebug and three different embossing folders, Smiles, a few sentiment stamps, and cardstock all from Close To My Heart.

Notepad Holder for a Quick Gift

I made this notepad holder as a thank you gift.  You know how sometimes you see something and then everything else stops until you make it?  Well, this was one of those projects.  I totally "lifted" the idea and the details follow the pictures.

I saw this on Srappin' Becky B. and loved it!  She does great work and there is a very easy to follow tutorial.  I especially like how she keeps it quick and simple.

Happy Birthday to my sister...

There's a birthday happening tomorrow. I'm hoping the birthday girl has received this card already, or is TOO busy to peek at this blog.  I have a few minutes to post so I'm taking the risk! =)
This was a fun card to make. That's always the way when you know just who you're making it for, don't you think?
I used the Close To My Heart Veranda paper.  I can't remember what stamp set this is...and I'm still all packed from my last girls weekend so I can't even check.  I "painted" the bird and flower with markers and then used a glitter pen to add some bling.  As always, thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to!

(Happy Birthday Kristi -- I love and miss you!)

Another Birthday Card -- Topstitch Perfect Day

Here's another really easy card that shows off the adorable Topstitch paper pack from Close To My Heart. I love the blue/pink/brown combination! This is one of the "birthday bunch" I'm doing for all the ladies in the office.  Nice thing about this plan, I have to come up with 10 different two can look alike!  Helps me keep the creative juices flowing! Thanks for stopping by! --Margo
My photography REALLY needs to improve.  I suppose one has to stop typing about it and DO something! =)

Sparkly Happy Birthday for Madeline!

I spent time with Madeline recently. She had just come from reading time at the library and the theme was pigs.  Although she'll only be 2 in April, she tells stories like a big girl!  And, I heard all about her love of pigs.  You know I couldn't resist the idea of pigs on her birthday here it is. In her favorite pink, with lots of sparkles.

I added sparkle to just about every detail on the front of the card using a sparkle gel pen, even went over the polka dots on the pink ribbon.  Same on the inside, and the Happy Birthday is filled in with sparkle. The 2 was cut out of paper, glued over the original 2 and then outlined in sparkle.  Not sure there's enough sparkle on this card =).
Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by!

State of Mind Thank You + another SSSC57 sampling

I played all weekend -- last weekend, so it's time to post some of the work!  This first card is a very simple thank you using Boom-Di-Ada paper and State of Mind stamps from Close To My Heart.

I loved the Super Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC57) card so much I made another using the Veranda paper kit from also from Close To My Heart. This is now my FAVORITE paper!
