Thinking of You

We've been on spring break this past week and it's been great to relax and have some fun adventures with my kids. Another bonus of being a substitute need to take any time off when school is out! I haven't been able to make many cards though--hopefully soon!

I made a bunch of cards with Mini Blooms--such a fun set! I forgot to hit publish on this post, so I thought I'd share.

Just a Note.

Hope you're having a good week. March is certainly flying by! One more week and we will be on spring break, and I'm excited for a slower pace for a bit!

I really had fun playing around with Watercolor Wonder to made this clean card. I used my beloved A Muse inks.

Hope you have a great day!

Happy Sunday!

I used this week's retrosketch in making a birthday card for my niece.

The paper is from the new Maggie Holmes Crate Paper collection.

Thanks for coming by!

I'm playing along with this month's Cloud9 Blog Hop . Isn't that photo gorgeous?

I was inspired by the colors and made two cards.

cloud 9 march 1

For the first, I stamped a background using different images from Folk Art Floral and Embroidered Bouquet. The sentiment is from Written on Ribbon.
cloud 9 march 2

I stamped the square image from Chantilly Trim four times, overlapping. The sentiment is from Quite Like you. I then stamped and cut out a trim image, also from Chantilly Trim.

Thanks for taking a look!

Card Set

Happy Monday evening!

Every year, I make a set of cards to donate to our preschool's silent auction. This is the first year we are not at the preschool :(

I made this set using PTI's Stitched Sentiments for the floral portion, and Wplus9's banner die and Written on Ribbon.






I had so much fun making these. Thanks for looking!
