Christmas Ornaments

You can't really  see the  shimmery read  paper underneath this bright  green Christmas card.  It is a little  hard for  me to be thinking  Christmas already when it  seems it was only  a few weeks ago.  However, there are a couple Christmas Challenges I want  to  enter.  One is Crafting By Designs and the other is Sparkles Christmas Challenge.


Another Accordian Fold card from the Silhouette Online Store.  I really like  how these  look.  This one I want to use  in the Cut It Up Windy Challenge.  This little sailboat wouldn't get very  far without a little  wind in her sails.  Chocolate, Coffee & Cards has a  Card  for a  Child Challenge.  My  friends   little  boy  turns 4  on Friday I made this for his birthday.  Through the Craft Room Door has an Anything Goes  challenge.

Liliac Cocoa

The challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon is Flowers and Ribbon.  I didnt use flowers as an embellishment   but as a stamped image and added a  ribbon.  Through the  Purple Haze has  a special Woman's  Challenge. Pile It On  has a  three of something challenge. I used three pearl beads.

Balloon Tri Fold

This   Balloon shadow box tri fold card is in the Silhouette Online Store.  I wasnt real sure how it would fold flat enough to mail so I just had to try it.  Still not  sure it  will  fold  flat but I like how it looks anyway.  There were  several more and you will probably see them later.  Simon  says Wednesday has a  Things that fly challenge.

I made this  glittery card for the Glitter n' Sparkle Inside and Out  challenge.  Easter is one of my favorite time of the year to make cards. 

Whimsie Easter

I used the sketch at Jo's Scrap Shack to make this  darling  little card using Easter Leah from Whimsie Doodle.  Whimsie Doodle's Challenge is  All About the Ladies.

Accordian Birthday

This accordion Fold Card  is  from the Silhouette Online Store.  I really like how they cut.  I decided to add an image to the back flap instead of the balloons that were  supposed to be there  so that I could use it in the Di's Digi Birthday Challenge as well as the Crafting When We Can Color Challenge. In the  Pink also has a Challenge to  make a  card for a special lady.

I saw this  daffodil at Imagine that  and I couldn't wait to color it.  I love daffodils.  they are  popping up all over my  yard with little  bursts of happiness. I want to use this card in the Addicted to CAS distressed challenge.  And  Imagine That has a  Use any  image challenge. 

Easter Bunnies

Not  quite sure  why but  every time I  use this shade of  purple  paper the picture always looks  blue.  I used the sketch  from Sketch Saturday for this card.  Through the Craft Room Door has an Anything Goes Challenge.


This  brilliant  bright yellow  daffodil  sends a  great  message  all its own with out  a lot of  words or decorations.  The  first  sign of Spring for sure.  They are  blooming all over my yard in  all kinds of colors/  Little bursts of happiness. I think this  should fit nicely in the CAS on Sunday Girl Power Challenge.  Its not Mother's Day here in the US  yet but I will be sending this to my Mother just to brighten her day! So I will also enter it in the  Dream Valley Mother's Day Challenge.
