My Crafty Weekend



Happy Sunday.  I had a super crafty weekend.  Here are my cards...  First up is a card inspired by this lovely sample from Muse #269 created by Anita.


I was inspired by the sponged blue background, the white die cut border and the pop of color.



I was focused on Father's Day cards this weekend, as I realized that some of them need to be mailed on Monday.  I pulled out a very old (5 years or more, perhaps) stamp set PTI Polka Dot Parade #3 and was able to make 3 cards with this little $5 mini set.  

I'm entering this first card at Retro Rubber #88.




This card is based on a card I saw online when I Googled the stamp set, but I could not find who made the original.  I am entering it at Addicted to CAS #138: Rainbow.




Last up with this Polka Dot Parade stamp set is this card which features the arm chair in that set.  I am entering this card at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge




My next Father's Day card is inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #275.  I used some Lawn Fawn patterned paper and a 'dad' die from Lil Inker.




Last up for Father's Day is a card I CASEd from Kara Lynne.  I loved how she used speech bubbles for her sentiment with her crowd of puppies.  I am entering this card at CAS-ual Fridays #201:  Boys of Summer.  Dad's are boys, and Father's Day is in the summer, right?





Last up is a fun birthday card for a young boy.  I am entering it at Poppystamps #45: For the Boys and The Male Room #87: Little Boys.  I used the Pond Frogs dies from Poppystamps die cut in various colors, and paired them with an old sentiment from PTI Frog Hop.




Thanks for Visiting

  1. I spy, with my little eye, my most favorite frogs who haven't had the least bit of attention in my craft room in far too long - I'd better get a jump on it, right?
