Friday Cards

We are in the midst of spring break this week. My sister came down on Wednesday and our girls all got to play and have fun- they loved it. We loved having them down and hope to see them all lots more! When she came down, she also brought me lots of lovely stamps to borrow and play with. As a CTMH consultant Kelly has lots of beautiful goodies and I have a big ol bag of stamps waiting for me to create with.

This card uses some pretty scraps, the bobunny double dot chocolate, white and light lime green cardstocks. I did use a new piece of blue to stamp on and create the card.
The stamp is CTMH Alfresco. I cut the shape out and popdotted it on a circle I cut with my scallop scissors. I added some prima gems and a bit of stickles for a touch of glitter. Then I added a Hampton Arts stamp- got these at Michaels for $1! The ribbon is some old MM that I've had forever.
This cute cute froggie doesn't show up as well as I'd like, the leaf is all glittery and sweet. These 3d stickers were on clearance at Michaels and I just had to buy them. They are colorbok. I cut a white circle from a backing sheet that was in a stack of paper ( good for recycling- and just a bit sturdier then cardstock) then I stitched it with orange floss. I added a couple leaves from my cricut ( accent ess. cart) and then popped them up. The larger circle was cut from some Chloe's Closet papers by MM that I bought as well. I added the Bobunny Double Dot cardstocks and some more of that backing sheet from the MM papers, cut with my scallop scissors. Again, more of that same blue cardstock I grabbed for the top card.
Next is a card with black cardstock- leftover scraps! another piece of that MM Chloe's closet paper, some scraps of sage and bobunny double dot in teal. I added in a MAMBI journal spot, some MM tiny type letters and this adorable glittery acetate snail from Colobok ( also on clearance!) some old ribbon and a button to finish it off.
in case you are wondering- snail=slow=late to send a card!! LOL!

I made this card for the Moxie Fab Challenge- stitching on cards. I used - yep-more of that Chloe's closet sheet,( got a lot of use from it and still have tons of this one sheet left!) some Martha punch bflies, a tag from MAMBI and Bobunny ribbon. The flower is punched ( eksuccess) and the leaves are cricut (accent ess). The word Celebrate is another $1 set purchase from Hampton Arts.
This last card I made with more scraps, bobunny double dots, and the rest of that blue cardstock. I used some MM felt stickers and a couple martha flocked letters. The owl is also one of those cute colorbok stickers with glitter in the background. I used some Colorbok stamps ( also Clearance! I got some DEALS I tell ya!) and cut out the flowers and leaves. The gems are Mambi. I also used that CTMH stamp and cut that out again, then placed it under the colorbok sticker. A little Anna Griffin ribbon finished this one off.



That's it for today. Have a great Good Friday and Happiest of Easters to you!!
enjoy your weekend.
