EASTER is coming!

I saw this go around on Facebook and on Pinterest.  For once, I didn't pin it, I made it.  Sat down, ordered what I wanted from Amazon.  When it arrived all in one box, I put it together.  Easiest craft box ever! 

This is my front door.   I cut the welcome sign on Cricut with vinyl. It's a permanent fixture on my door, the other side says goodbye.

Getting back in the Swing

I was tooling around Paper Playful this morning -- A blog that lists all the card blog challenges.  If I'm going to get back to being creative on my own, I have to start by following a few others.  There was a great Tuesday Morning Sketch group listed.  Here is my submission to their fun sketch.

All pieces cut on Cricut - Doily cut, squares, rectangles.
Stamps are from Paper Smooches

Inside is currently blank, because I think I can use it for a thank you, or a congratulations
This was fun so I'm really glad I found Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Monochromatic Greens

Playing around with things that I got in a scrap-box from Pick Your Plum

A lot of stuff in the box was from Maya Road.  I haven't used this spritz spray stuff before.  It's not generally my style of use... but, I thought I would try it.  


I had olive green ribbon in my stash, doily cut from Cricut cuts, flower cuts from Walk In My Garden and pearl pin added to enter.  Thanks stamp from Stampin' Up

Sing Into Spring

I don't get to play challenges often but I had time to do it now. This challenge is to use that red and white twine and show love.  I love to sing.  It's the hardest part of life after thyroid surgery, I can't sing anymore,  but it doesn't stop my heart.  I have a bunch of this red and white twine left over after Christmas and I keep it out because I can use it for Valentines too.

It's a new year!

After the huge project I did for the church-wide Christmas party.  I was pretty slow returning to the craft world.  I had no new ideas, I made all my Christmas cards and got those out.  But I just didn't have the joy it takes to create.

I made these thinking of you cards.  Some are valentine colors they will be fine for now or any other time.

I got six cards done in one sitting which is fast for me.  I usually don't like to do a card the same, but this imagination station went well.
This particular card entered in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge for Valentines #269
