It's the weekend!!!

Hope you are all having a great start to your weekend! Today I thought I would share a card I made with the newly released Easter Blessings set from Firecracker Designs. I absolutely love this new set. It is so beautiful and elegant and could be used for Easter or weddings or lots of other occasions. Here is a peak at the whole set:

Hello everyone! All I can say today is TGIF...and boy do I mean it. This has been one heck of a long, chaotic week. I'm so glad that the alarm clock is not going off at 4:30 tomorrow morning. Unfortunately my internal clock will probably still wake me up at that time but at least tomorrow I can look at the clock and then go back to sleep.
Today I have a fun DRS Designs birthday card to share. I really liked how this card turned out but it was really hard to photograph. The designer paper is from this super fun DCWV green pack that my dear friend Kisa sent me (THANKS!). I just love it. The papers are textured and a little shiny. I colored this gorgeous cake with Prismacolor markers and added a little glitter. Dress it up glitter dots finished off the card.

Supplies used: Stamp from DRS Designs, Prismacolor markers, SU CS, DCWV DP, SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Dress it up glitter dots.

I hope you all had a wonderful week. Stop by tomorrow for a FCD card made with one of the newly released Easter sets and then Sunday is the big Paper Makeup blog hop and you definitely don't want to miss that! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm running behind

Sorry my post is a little late (or maybe a lot late) today. We had a busy day and I just realized that I hadn't scheduled a post today. I'm getting ready for bed (because 4:30am comes way too quickly) so this is going to be a short one.

Here's a simple masculine card for you. All of the stamps are from DRS Designs. I not 100% sure but I think the brown ribbon is American crafts and the twill tape is Bobbin Ribbon.
Brads are American Crafts. All CS is from SU. That's about it.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

It's a 2 post kinda day!

Ok, so this is my 2nd blog post for today, but I've been reading the comments that everyone has been leaving and the general theme seems to be...another butterfly card...I started looking back over the past couple weeks and yikes, I do post a lot of butterfly cards. So in an effort to NOT be a one trick pony I decided to post a NON-butterfly card *gasp*.
There is a challenge posted on the Paper Makeup blog this week to make a card using 2 types of bling...I could have easily made a butterfly card for this challenge but I decided to ink up some of my new Paper Makeup stamps for this challenge. For my card I used self adhesive rhinestons and Shimmerz and my two forms of bling. What do ya think, can I do non-butterfly...Supplies used: Stamps from Paper Makeup, SU CS, Basic Grey DP, Darice self adhesive rhinestones, Prismacolor markers, Green Olive Shimmerz, Nestibilies, Sponge.

Did you know that Paper Makeup is having a blog hop and party on March 15th? My blog will be one of the stops on the blog hop route so make sure to stop on by!

Hope you are all having a fabulous day!

Happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone is having a great week. Not sure if it is the time change or the weather change or something else but I am totally exhausted this week. I can barely function. I think I'm in need of some major relaxation time. On a positive note, I saw my first robin of the year. The first robin of the year always gives me such an exciting feeling... Spring is almost here and winter and snow are almost gone!
Today I have a sympathy card to share. I made this card using the "Sympathy" set from Firecracker Designs as well as the new "Clearly Greetings" set. I love this new clear set. The sentiments are the perfect size and I love the elegant script!
Supplies used: Stamps from Firecracker Designs, SU CS, Basic Grey DP, May Arts ribbon, Nestibilities, Prismacolor markers, Shimmerz marigold, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are all having a fabulous Wednesday!
