Happy Day!

Happy Sunday my scrappy friends!  Just a few more days of summer vacation before school starts!  Are you ready?  We are almost there!  Just a few more labels to adhere to notebooks.

My niece is starting 1st grade on Wednesday so I made her a little card!  I used STAMPlorations stamps, Blossom Overture, Happy, and Mixed Media Grunge.

I used the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge for that adorable cloud and rainbow!  Various inks were used including Tim Holtz distressed, Colorbox and Close to my Heart as well as paper scraps from my stash.

I'll be entering this card into the STAMPlorations CASE challenge where I used Shirley's card as my inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Sunday!!

New home

Happy Sunday my scrappy friends!  

Someone I know is moving so I made her and her son, who happens to be a friend of my son's, a little pineapple card.  Pineapples are a sign of welcoming, warmth and this is where I grabbed my inspiration.

Using the My World cricut cartridge, I cut a pineapple for the cover of my card and a smaller one for the inside (no photo, sorry!).   I used stamps and stencils from STAMPlorations, bold sentiments: Journey and mixed media grunge and stencil confetti circles.   

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
STAMPlorations August Theme and Sketch
Bitten by the Bug 2 - The Fruits of Summer
Cut It Up: Old School - the paper I used for the circles is at least 5 years old!
Scrapping4Fun - #49 using name brand paper - I used K & company and DCWV

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments!
