Lawn Fawn “Critters Down Under”

Hi Again Friends,
Yes, it’s true, two posts in one day, that is a rarity.  See my previous post here for Chari’s birthday blog hop.
Lawn Fawn Inspiration week wraps up today with Critters Down Under which is another fun set of critters to add to your collection. I made two cards (one of which is featured for Chari’s birthday), and this one:
There’s a story behind this card.  I was coloring and cutting out critters the other night when Carlin picked up an alligator and put it up to his polo shirt like it was an Izod.  It made me laugh. I told him I was going to make a card like that.  I am not sure he believed me, but here it is.  I think that it could be used for a male birthday card or even Father’s day.  It’s silly, but that’s us.
Thanks for stopping by.  Remember to sign up for your chance to win some new stuff at the Lawn Fawn Blog.
Hugs and blessings

Happy Birthday Chari

Hi Friends
Today is the amazingly talented Chari’s birthday.  So the sweet Danielle organized a blog hop to celebrate.  Of course, I wanted to join in. If you’re following along the hop, you should be arriving from Kelly’s blog
Here’s the card I created which is also part of the Lawn Fawn Inspiration week featuring “Critters Down Under.”
Next stop on the hop is Melissa with her fabulous creation.  If you get lost along the way, just head back to Danielle’s blog for the order
Thanks for stopping in

Lawn Fawn “Make Lemonade”

Hi Friends,

It’s back to work for us in the U.S., I sure enjoy those long weekends.  I was able to do some paper-crafting and that was so relaxing.

Being able to spend some time crafting was nice since it’s Lawn Fawn Inspiration week.  Today features “Make Lemonade” which is an adorable mini set that includes all the goodies to make that delicious summer beverage. Here’s what I came up with:


Of course, I broke out the Lawn Fawn Bright Side paper.  It’s so bright and just screams summer to me.  I think these lemonade images go quite well with it.

Thanks for stopping in today, and be sure to sign up for a chance to win at the Lawn Fawn blog.

Hugs and blessings

Lawn Fawn “Dad’s Day”

Hi Friends

Lawn Fawn Inspiration week continues, and today we are featuring the new set “Dad’s Day”.  As you may have guessed, it has stamps that are perfect for making those Fathers’ Day cards (and other masculine cards).

Here is what I came up with:


and this one:


My cards show the chair and two sentiments, but the set also features a mustache, bow-tie, and tie.  It’s a great set to help make those cards for men!

Have a blessed day

Magical birthday+Bazzill Giveaway

Hi Friends,

I hope you are having a fabulous week.  We are enjoying some gorgeous weather in Indianapolis, and it’s just lovely. 
Today, I’d like to share a card I made for my friend’s daughter. Her 5th birthday was last weekend, and she is having her party this weekend (which I am unable to attend).  She’s having a magician come to her party, so I wanted to incorporate that into my card.


I used some of Bazzill Basics Paper new Card Shoppe paper. It’s heavy weight card stock (100 lbs).  It folds great and is just wonderful. It’s not been released yet, but Bazzill was nice enough to give the Lawn Fawn design team some to try out. The best part is that they also gave us some to give away.

Here’s a snapshot of the paper colors:


In addition to this fabulous paper pack, I’m also throwing in some Lawn Fawn goodies to give away.


So, I’m giving away a package of Bazzill Basics Card Shoppe card stock courtesy of Bazzill Basics, and a Lawn Fawn Bright Side paper pack and a Flutter By stamp set.

All you need to do to win is comment on this post.  You have until May 20 at 11:59 p.m. EST to comment.  I’ll pick a winner on Monday, May 21.  If you follow my blog, you’ll automatically be entered, so if you comment and follow my blog, you’ll get two entries. 

Phew, that is a long post, but I hope you think it’s worth it

Hugs and blessings

Birthday Flutterby

Hi Friends

Wow, I’ve been neglecting the blog lately.  Life and work have been nuts recently.

Thanks for continuing to visit and stop in.  Today, I thought I’d share a card that I made awhile back for a friend, using the Flutterby set by Lawn Fawn.


I just love this set. It’s right up my alley. Now, normally, I’m not into purple, but I made this for a friend who LOVES purple. 

This is going to be a short post because I have an injured pinkie finger and I keep making typos.  I have a lot to share, especially with regard to the trip to visit Laurel and Ayana last weekend.  It was an amazingly fun weekend, and I have photos to share. These two girls are not just wonderful crafters but total sweethearts and great friends. 

Thanks for stopping in, hugs and blessings
