Happy Palm Sunday!

It's a dreary day here in the foothills of the mountains.  I'm hoping that the warm weather will be back this week.  Spring break begins on Friday and I can tell already it's going to be a long week!  I made some quick and simple Easter cards.

This one I used Designer Calendar for the Easter and Indie Art for the cross.
I think this little bunny is just adorable!  He is from Gypsy Wonderings as is the grass.  The font for this is Gypsy font.

I also made a birthday card for the Cartridge Exploration Challenge over on the message boards at  Every week they pick a cartridge to explore and people post their creations.  It's amazing to see how JAMMED packed each of the cartridges are.  

This cupcake is from A Child's Year
The sentiment shape is from Storybook
The stamp is a Studio G stamp.  The sentiment will get place inside the card once my stickles dry.

Happy Crafting!

Hello Spring

Well happy last day of Winter folks!

It's sunny and beautiful here.  I have a busy weekend ahead so I wanted to get my weekly post up today.  I made this card with George and some scraps of a secret project I am working on.  I was feeling ready for spring and whipped this together.  Simple and sweet!

This weekend my husband and I (we're youth group leaders) are hosting our spring retreat.  The girls and I will be making spring/Easter cards for a local retirement home.  I went to Joann's and loaded up on spring paper.  I'm excited to see what we can craft together!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Spring and Happy Crafting!

Precious Penelope

As you may have read in my previous entries my niece was born last month.  We have been soaking in the new born time!  Here's a few shots and a layout I made for my personal scrapbook.  The Penelope was written with the Gypsy Font cartridge.  Jane I believe is from A Child's Year.  The dragonfly is from Gypsy Wonderings.  I used my cuttlebug to emboss the rectangles with core-dinations paper.

I have also been able to add pictures to her babybook as well. I must admit it looks so much better with pictures in it!

I left some journaling room for my sister to write as well.  I am really enjoying working with these pictures!  I have never scrapbooked a baby before.

Happy Crafting,
