Well I had a nap today and woke up with even less of a voice!  Oh well.  Hopefully I will have it back tomorrow.

I played with my Flea Market by Crate Paper and whipped up this card.  I am trying to make more that are mailable!  The enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye.  This went together quite quickly.

Over the Rainbow

I am at home sick today.  Sore throat, ears and no voice but I had a bit of energy to craft ;)

Since the rain came back after a few beautiful days, I was inspired to create this card from the Hello Sunshine collection by Pink Paislee.  I cut the circle background and sentiment with my Silhouette and the umbrella with my Cricut.  The stamp is from Technique Tuesday.

I was inspired by this sketch:

Retro Hello

It is a beautiful day here but I have to head into the school for a couple of hours to get ready for the week.  Hopefully I can then go for a walk while the sun is still out.  I have a quick card for you today.  I used the Date Night collection by Chickaniddy Crafts along with dies from MFT and Wplus9.  Easy peesy!

I was inspired by this sketch from Retro Sketches:

Hello Spring

I took these lilac photos last year... can't wait for them to bloom again.  I love lilacs and spring.  I used the Front Porch Collection by Pebbles along with some SRM Stickers, Technique Tuesday Stamps and a Silhouette cut.

Aging Gracefully

It is time for another Be Inspired Challenge over at Unity and I decided to use the color palette for my layout.  I used the Polka Dot Party collection by American Crafts.  I fussy cut the flower clusters.  I also used some Dies from My Favorite Things and a Kerri Bradford sentiment. I used a number of different SMAK Kits (Dec 2011Make Everyday Count, Dec. 2013Love Story Clips, Feb 2014 Camera Ready, Mar 2014 Just Plain Happy).

I love to use my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere my items to the page and then just do some stitching here and there for interest and texture.  To adhere the die cuts and sentiment the Xyron Create a Sticker items as they make applying them so easy!

The twine is from Divine Twine.  The 'Because' is from Kerri Bradford.

I used this sketch from My Scraps and More:

Now be sure to head on over to the Be Inspired Challenge to see what the other Unity designers have created.  I hope you play along!

Inspired By #109

You have until tonight to play along with my Inspired By challenge for your chance at the prize.

I went with the colors and girlie feel of the umbrella and created this card with the new All Dolled Up collection by Glitz.  A CAS card for me, limited layering and no stitching!  That doesn't happen often, LOL

Spring is Here

I finally broke into my Vintage Bliss by Simple Stories.  I just love the colors and pretty patterns and couldn't bear to use it.  I created a spring theme card using a SRM Sticker and a Kerri Bradford cut file.  The twine is from Divine Twine.

I used this week's sketch from Retro Sketches.

Baby Booties

I finally broke into my Special Delivery Girl collection.  I have held off because my daughter is pregnant and I want to save all of the Special Delivery I have until we know what she is going to have!  We still don't know, but I just had to create a baby girl card since the paper is so pretty!  I used my Silhouette to cut out the shoes and I also layered a scallop border that I punched out of vellum.

I am playing along with the Curtain Call challenge:

I couldn't wait to scrap these photos that I took while in London.  As my journaling stated, I loved to see  Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abby and Big Ben but these photo booths are definitely what I picture when I think of London.  I used some older Travel Ledger by Teresa Collins along with some of the new Far and Away and the clear stickers are from EAD.  I cut the plane with my Silhouette.
