Oldie but Goodie Time

Love the bright colors of this card.
Has a summer feel which is really sad 
since summer is long gone I'm afraid.
Gotta love Stella.
It was fun to use staples on the corners.
Something I've wanted to do for a long time
just didn't have the right project.
Pop over to the Catch the Bug blog
to see what the other Bugaboo team members
have come up with.

I can't believe it, where has the time gone??
I couldn't love her more if she was my own.
Go check out what the other DT members have
come up with on Bugaboo's

Happy New Place

The flower girl at our wedding
just moved away to finish College.
I'm still in shock!!!
It's my husbands cousins daughter,
she was only 3 when my husband and I 
started dating and now she's gone
away to College......
I can't be this old can I???
Anyway, I wanted to make her a card
to wish her well in her new place.
This image from MFT (My Favorite Things)
seemed like the logical choice.
I just love how this turned out.  
Most of it is paper pieced:)
Thanks for looking

Anything But a Card

My turn for Bugaboo's 
Anything But a Card project
and with Mother's Day fast approaching
I thought this was a really cute idea.
Would be cute to have the kids color it as well.
Color, Cut and attach to a piece of a thin dowel
and stick in your plant or flower pot.
Could even add a personalized sign on a stick too.
I've used this idea before as well.  
Check out the "gift ideas" label on my sidebar for 
similar ideas.

MFT sketch challenge

Ok, so I'm a HUGE fan of MFT stamps.
I'm also a HUGE fan of sketch challenges
(they're my favorite)
Soooooo, It's only natural that I enter
MFT's weekly sketch challenge.....RIGHT?
So here is the sketch:

I decided to use one of MFT's 
"Who's that Girl?" sets for this challenge
It's actually a Birthday themed set but....
I used Baby themed paper and paper pieced it
this is how it turned out:

I happened to use MFT's Blueprint 1 die for this card
AND I can't say enough about how much I love this
Blueprint idea!!!!  It's amazing....the best thing in card making since....
well, THE best thing in card making :)
All the work is done for you! You even get layout sketches for all the pieces.
And last week MFT actually released Blueprint 2
which is currently in route to my mailbox!!!!
Here is what they look like:
