Cards for Leah

Hello!  I saw this button over at La-La Land Crafts for Kids and wanted it.   Mommy said it is for a little girl named Leah who is in need of some smiles so I made her a card (Click HERE for more info).  I made a card that looks like outdoors for her that I would like to enter into La-La Land for Kids Great Outdoors challenge.  Here is my card!  Thanks for looking!

My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Day #5

**Is my blog working??  I'm posting today in both places until I know it is ok...sorry for a confusion week***

Today is the last day of sneak peeks at My Craft Spot! Tomorrow, Kimberly will release all five new sets! Woo Hoo! Which one is your favorite so far? Well, today we are sneak peeking my favorite new set, Butterfly Kisses! Here is my Sneak Peek!

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sentiment! Perfect for my little dirt monsters in the spring/summer. They love making mud pies and planting with Mommy! I embellished the card with some Navy Crinkle Ribbon and Blueberry Divine Twine both available at My Craft Spot!

I used my SU cardstock and MME Jack & Jill pattern paper. The edges are all sponged and sewed down.

The adorable little garden gnome comes from Paper Smooches Forest Whimsy set. I inked it up with my Copics and layered it to make him pop off the page!

My Oldest E was so in love with this card and the sentiment that she insisted that she needed to give it to her teacher and class for the first day of spring so now this little gnome lives in her classroom!

Ok, so now that you have seen our sneak peeks all week at My Craft Spot, are you ready for the blog hop? Tomorrow, we will be hoping and there will be fun prizes to be won along the way! If you missed this week's peeks at My Craft Spot, make sure you stop by and check them out for your chance to win! I myself have been blown away by the Design Teams work and I can't wait to see what is in store for tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Again!  Day 3 of the  My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party!  Have you had a chance to check out all the amazing DT projects and giveaways this week!  If not, make sure you go to My Craft Spot and check it out!  Today we are sneak peeking Kimberly's new set called Tiny Tags!  I can't even start to describe how fabulous this set is!  There are just so many fun sentiments!  Here is my favorite project using the set. 
The weather has been so nice here, that we have been walking to/from school each day.  I wanted to make some special cards for the school crossing guards since they help us get there safely each day!
I cut them to make 3.5" x 3.5" sized card and stamped the "Thanks!" sentiment around the outside!   The little bear is cut from Create A Critter and I added a PKS Critter face.  The little vest is from Paper Dolls and I hand cut the details.  I finished the little cards off with some Orange Divine Twine.

We live quite a distance from the school so we pass through several of the crossing guards.  I made sure to make a card for each of them!

For the next project, I actually used one of the tag stamps on a retirement card for a teacher.  The "Happy Retirement" stamp is Stampin' Up and is not part of the new stamp set.

Here is a close up of the adorable tag stamp!!  They are all so cute and all the sentiments fit into the tags! 
I used the apple from Doodlecharms and the super cute bookworm from Create A Critter! 

I made sure to add a PKS Critter Face and glossy his glasses. 

Tomorrow is the last day of Sneak Peeks then Blog Hop on Saturday....YAY blog candy!  Make sure you stop by My Craft Spot and check out Kimberly and the DTs amazing projects!  Thanks for stopping by today! 

Thankful Thursday Made it Myself March Blog Hop

*Sorry for the change in location. I'll be posting here until I get my blog back into a working order*
Hello Everyone!  Today is the Thankful Thursday Made it Myself March Blog Hop hosted by the fabulous Jenny at Crazy About Cricut!  If you just came from the talented Sandy's blog, then you are heading in the right direction.  If you are just stopping by today, then make sure you go to Crazy About Cricut to start at the beginning!  The Thankful Thursday Design Team have some super fun projects to share with you, so you will not want to miss a thing! 

Today we have a special project to share with you all.  My Oldest E wanted a Night Owl Birthday Party and after seeing these amazing felt owls at SnowyBliss, she HAD TO HAVE THEM!!   The party Anj shared at SnowyBliss was completely amazing and honestly, I would love to have a Night Owl Party of my own for my next birthday!!  Since no one is going to throw me a party, my MIL, mother and I got started on Oldest E's Birthday Party. 
We bought the Owl pattern from SnowyBliss's ETSY shop and they were so easy to bring to life.  There are 13 owls ready to be re-created but my daughter had a huge response with 26 kids RSVPd so we had to get to work on coming up with some new owls (especially some boyish ones).  Here are the new owls my Oldest E and I came up with for her friends. 
I’m a Birthday Owl!
Balloons, cupcakes, presents and fun!  We can laugh and play, be silly and run!  The party is going to be a blast!
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

***Oldest E's idea***
I’m a Give a Hoot Owl!
Reduce, reuse, recycling is the way!  I think every day should be earth day!  Be clean, be green, be a recycling machine!  Will you save the Earth with me? 
I'm so excited to be your new friend!
Boozhoo Niijii!
I’m an Ojibwa Owl!
 I come from a place called the Northwoods, in northern Wisconsin, I’d take you there if I could!  I love dancing in the PowWow to the beat of the drum, and eating some fried bread, it tastes so yum-yum! 
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

I’m a Wild Thing Owl!
Roar, jump, leap and spring;
what else would you expect from a Wild Thing?
I'm so excited to be your new friend!
I’m a Star Spangle Owl!
Bang, Pop, Bang, Boom,
I love everything red, white and blue! 
I'm so excited to be your new friend!
I’m a Soldier Owl!
Big, brave, courageous and strong,
I’ll be protecting you all night long!
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

I’m a Franken’ Owl!
Nuts and Bolts and creepy crawly things!  I can’t wait for the fun you and I will bring!
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

***My older nephew received this guy.  I thought it came out a little creepy, but he LOVED it and thought it was totally cool!*** 
I’m a Red Hot Owl!
I feel my temperature rising, higher and higher! 
Burning hot like I’m a camp fire
(but don’t ever play with fire…it’s dangerous)!
I'm so excited to be your new friend!
I’m a Pirate Owl!
Skulls and cross bones and eye patch fun;
I travel the seven seas beneath the setting sun!
My map sends me east, north, south and west,
but sailing with you is what I like best!
I’m so excited to be your new friend!
I’m a Rainy Owl!
I love playing in the rain!  Splish, splash, splatter and scream! 
Come play in a puddle with me! 
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

***Oldest E's idea***
I’m a Baker Owl!
Cupcakes and pastries and anything sweet!  We can bake them together, which are your favorite to eat?
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

***Oldest E's idea and she was totally thrilled he was the owl she picked***
I’m a Boo-Boo Owl!
An owie, a boo-boo, and little knee scrapes;
Place a band-aid on it and a kiss will make it great! 
Will you please take good care of me?
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

***Oldest E's idea***
I’m a Butterfly Owl!
Flitter flutter butterfly, flying in the big blue sky! 
Flutter high, flutter low, flutter fast and flutter slow! 
Come flutter with me! 
I'm so excited to be your new friend!

I’m a Groovy Owl!
Slow down, you move too fast, you’ve got to make the nighttime last!  Far out dude, Flower Power and Peace! 
Life I LOVE you, all is GROOVY!!
I'm so excited to be your new friend!
(sings to the tune of Simon and Garfunkel's song)

The rest of these owls are from the SnowyBliss pattern so you must stop by SnowyBliss in order to check them out and get their personalities.   I did make a few alterations to some of them which I'll list below.
(I gave him a guitar rather than music notes)

(My mom gave him heart eyes...super cute)

(My mother in law and I thought she needed a dress-up neaklace and some earrings)

(I gave her a full tutu)

The kids had to find glow stick neaklaces which had a star attached.  Each star was numbered and coordinated with an owl.  The kids pulled them out of the bags one at a time and it was so awesome to see their faces as they met their owl!

My daughter had so much fun coming up with these and she was thrilled that almost every one of her friends got an owl that was PERFECT for their personalities!  Her party was a few weeks ago now, and we are still coming up with new owl personalities...haha...the party never ends!

A huge thank you to Anj for sharing this amazing Birthday Party, and another huge thank you to my mother-in-law and mother for helping me bring these adorable owls to life!  There is no way I could have gotten them all done without them and it was definitely a fun family project for several weeks, which is what Thankful Thursday is all about!

There were so many owls that I couldn't get them into a good pic together, so my friend put this collage together for me...thank you Jenny!!
Thanks for taking the time to check out our creation today.  I've taken enough of your time so please hop on to your next stop at

My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Day 3

*Sorry for the change in location. I'll be posting here until I get my blog back into a working order*

Goodmorning!  Day 3 of the week long Stamp Release Party at My Craft Spot!  Today's set is called Happily Ever After.  It is a beautiful set and I can't wait for you to see it on Saturday!   Here is my sneak peek for today! 

I thought I would make an Anniversary card for my hubby but this could easily be a Wedding card too!  I used my Gypsy to create the hearts using the Doodlecharms Cartridge. 

The paper is MME Portobello Road with a Vintage Vanilla Crinkle Ribbon Bow tied around it.  

Stop back tomorrow for another sneak peek at another fabulous new stamp set from My Craft Spot!

My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Day 2

*Sorry for the change in location. I'll be posting here until I get my blog back into a working order*

Good morning!  Another day of partying at My Craft Spot today!  Today we are showing off our sneak peeks of Kimberly's new stamp set called Birthday Wishes!  Can you guess what the stamp set includes?  BIRTHDAY SENTIMENTS....YAY!!  I know I make more birthday cards than anything, so I was thrilled with this set!  Here is the card I created for my sneak peek today.

This Reminisce Space Buddies pattern paper has been calling out of my stash to be used since the day I bought it.  It ended up being tricky to use because I couldn't bare covering it up with anything, but I thinked I pulled it off! 

I am so happy to have a new "Happy Birthday" sentiment to use on my cards.  I've been using my others so much that you are all probably sick of seeing them!  I used the Blueberry Divine Twine (available at My Craft Spot) to make a little cord holding onto the little astronaut guy!

This little cutie comes from B is for Boy Lite Cricut Cartridge.  I used a Wide Eyed Kids Peachy Keen Face on him, gave him some buttons with brads and outlined him with a black journaling pen.  The little planet is cut from the oval spellbinders and sponged.

The inside is stamped with a mixture of sentiments from the new Birthday Wishes and the "out of this World!" and "cool!" come from Build a Valentine (per special request from Oldest E)! 

Kimberly and the My Craft Spot Design Team have created some amazing projects and if you like what you see today, make sure you check back each day!  There is more to come!  Thanks for stopping by today!

My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Day 1

*Sorry for the change in location.  I'll be posting here until I get my blog back into a working order*

It is party time at My Craft Spot!  Kimberly is releasing 5 new stamp sets and we will be showing off our sneak peeks all this week!  There will be prizes along the way and we will end the week with a fun blog hop!  Today the stamp set being release will be available immediately!  It is called Happy Easter and it has not only Easter stamps but Mother's Day covered too!  Here is my project for today!

I used TiddlyInks Wryn Somebunny Loves You inside an oval egg and shaped the "Happy Easter" sentiment around it.  "Some bunny loves you!" is stamped, cut out with a circle punch, then cut in half. 
I tied some MCS Pink Bubblegum Crinkle Ribbon and added a Posy Bakers Twine bow.  The paper is MME Happy Go Lucky and I distressed the edges with my scissors then sewed it all down.  It is layered onto SU ardstock.  

Make sure you stop by My Craft Spot and join us all week long for the party!  Thanks for stopping by today!
