Crafty Round Up


Hello and happy Sunday.  A lot has been going on here behind the scenes, and I am finally taking a breath to post a few cards I've made over the past I-Don't-Know-How-Long.

First up is my first creation from the newest MFT Stamps kit called Greetings from the Couch.  For some reason, this kit really spoke to me.  Maybe it's because I practically never leave my house, or maybe it's because I know I need to go couch shopping soon.

I was inspired by the black and yellow colors at Color Hue #42, the photo from Inkspiration #266 (although I must admit my home scene is way tidier than the inspiration photo), Addicted to Stamps and More #430: Die Cuts, and Seize the Birthday #239: no topping.

Next up is this little cutie that combines two different MFT gnome sets I recently purchased.  Aren't they adorable?  This is a birthday card for a friend who loves gnomes.  I am entering this card at Seize the Birthday #239: no topping.

I don't know when the babies will start to arrive in my family, but I will be ready.  This one is going into the stash.  I am entering it at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Little Critters.

The next 4 cards will also be entered at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Little Critters, and I made them all using some new mini sets from Colorado Craft.  I am newly obsessed with their adorable mice, and all the fun these critters can get into.

This first card was a graduation card for my youngest who just graduated from college.  I my mind, that stylish mouse is carrying a suitcase, off to tackle the world.

In this card, our brave little mouse is an artist, making art that makes them happy.

And a pair of cards celebrating marriage and anniversary.  Just love these little mice love birds.

Last up is a graduation card for a nephew who plans to study Architecture.  I thought that The Greetery Big Plans background would be the perfect backdrop for this card.  I am entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #430: Die Cuts.

Thanks for Visiting
