Blue Bird Anniversary Card

Time for a couple of my older cards!! This is one that I created right about the same time that Kitkat Cards came into being.
I don't have the maker of the bird and flower die cuts, I'm afraid I made this before I started keeping track The letters were made by my handy-dandy Cricut! This one is available for sale here on etsy.
That's it for now!! Have a great day and keep crafting!

Someday My Prince Will Come

As a little girl, I loved the idea behind fairy princess, and princes, wizards and warriors, and devoured every fairy tale I could get my hands on. So when I discovered this paper I bought it immediatly without knowing what I was going to do with it. The opportunity finally came up when my niece Alex turned 5.

Materials:Paper is my prince from the fairy tale series by recollections, ally's wonderland by sei, letters are cut out by my handy dandy Cricut. (Provocraft)

I love doing kids cards, they are so much fun, and this one really took me back to my own childhood. So much fun! And now for a section I haven't done for a while...

Cat Corner

Yes, Stilts and Felix are as helpful as always!! After I set up my new craft table, they realized they now had easier access to me as I work.

"Can I help?" - Stilts

It was fun to try, but probably not a technique I will continue to use. IT takes a lot of time.

Materials: Paper is green argyle by recollections , Green and white cardstock, Black sticker letters

And here is my final result!!!

Have a great day, and keep crafting!

Baby Cards

Hi all!! Sorry for the break, but I have been having technical difficulties. :-) Even now I'm posting from my phone, and I probably will be for a while, so if you all can bear with me while I muddle through this I would greatly appreciate it. Yesterday and today I finally got back to my cards, and had a marathon card making session. It felt so nice. I seriously sat down with 6 hours of Star Trek and went nuts. Dishes weren't touched, and neither was the laundry, dusting, filing or any other chore I had planned, but boy am I happy. And I had time to paint my nails with my daughter! It'll be a while before photos and everything are ready though, so today I thought I would give you all a sneak peak at what will soon be listed on etsy. These two were inspired by the RIDICULOUS amount of friends who announced pregnancies these last two months. I think I'm up to 6 pregos, two of whom are having twins. Its going to be baby shower paradise. Always good times. :-)

Have a great day, and keep crafting!
