Dream Big....and More...



Hello friends....I have eeked out some crafty time already this week, and will start with my favorite card of the bunch.  The challenge at Stay Crafty with Hero #8 is Small Joys, and I found some tiny stamps in my newest Hero Arts stamp set to use on my card.  I stamped the trio of books 4 separate times, cut them out and stacked them up, resting the little reading mouse right on top.  I don't know why, but I love this card so much (I may never send it out).  I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #165: Up to One Third + Optional Twist of Repeating Image (my trio of books).






This next card is inspired by the challenge at Lawn Faunatics #77: Oh Baby and Perfectly CAS #9: Animals.  This sweet little baby deer is from Lawn Fawn Into the Woods.








Next up is a card inspired by the challenge at Paper Smooches:  Thank You, Addicted to CAS #184: Flower, and Retro Rubber Challenge #135: tic tac toe (die cut, embossing, flowers).  My stamps are Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds and I think they are 4 years old.






Last up is a card using these beautiful Chrysanthemum stamps from Uniko, and I am inspired to play along with Uniko Challenge #59:  Anything Goes with the optional twist of bright and happy.






Thanks for Visiting

  12. Another great display of your talent, Joyce. That mouse with the books is absolutely darling and so is the little deer. The stenciling behind the PS flowers is wonderful and the flowers bright and cheery. Thanks for sharing that card with us at Addicted to CAS.

  17. Your mojo must be on overdrive, Joyce! I love them all, but I may be in agreement with you about that first card. But I'm okay with you keeping it - but if it had been a little kitty reading... ;)
