Awesome Birthday Card {hybrid}

I came across the card on the left on the Paper Crafts Magazine blog and I just loved the way the "awesome" was popped off the card.  It had such great dimension to it.

I knew I could try something similar with my Silhouette SD, it was just a matter of having the perfect alpha and the time to put it all together.  Meg Mullens has a new alpha coming out tomorrow called "Burlap Alpha" and it was perfect for this.  I used some papers from her "Alphabet Collection: B is For... " and A Mom's Heart."

Got Cravings? Card {hybrid}

Another super easy card that is super cute (in my humble opinion, of course)!  I used Dani Mogstad's Here We Grow Digital Stamps and colored in the pickle with a paper from her Deep Blue Sea kit.  I used Darcy Baldwin's font called Jewel for the sentiment.

Ribbon Scraps Card {hybrid}

My new favorite card ever!  And it was one of the easiest ones to make too!

I have a lot of ribbon scraps from various projects that I keep in a little bag and I finally got them all out, organized them, and then printed off some free wordart from Karla Dudley and added in the words "sew much."  I stitched them to the card - voila, my new favorite card!  Incredibly simple.

Happy crafting!

Cute Little Easter Chicks {hybrid}

I'm gonna leave these little cuties out for the easter bunny to put in the baskets this Sunday.  I saw how to make these chicks here and figured they were easy enough for me to try!  My boys would have loved to make them with me but I want them to be a surprise, of course!

Glue, Egg Carton

So cute, right?!

Happy Easter Cards {hybrid}

I have always loved the elements Lauren Grier had in her 'Mr. Cutie Patootie' kit, which is retired (boo!).  I used them in some cards I made for Easter along with the Card Patterns Sketch 111.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a blessed holiday!

Flower Card {hybrid} SSSC112

I really love the colors on this card!  The papers are all digital and were printed off from the newest collab from Meghan Mullens and Traci Reed called Eco-Mama coming out tomorrow at Sweet Shoppe Designs.  I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch 112.  It's a little hard to see but I used my Silhouette SD to cut out the frame, the pennants, and the flower.

Get Well Soon Card {hybrid} - GS #82

I love the colors in the kit that I used for this card - it's from the kit Can't Hold Me Down by Lauren Grier.  Lauren is in the hospital right now and is in need of all the thoughts and prayers on can give.  I made this card in honor of her, using the Get Sketchy sketch #82 for this week.

Okay, so I'm not in love with the sentiment on this card, in fact, I think I may just change it before I send it out to anyone.  It bothers me the more I think about it, lol...but anyway, here is the card I made for the Mojo Monday Sketch 185.  I used "Spring's a Hoot" coming out tomorrow at Sweet Shoppe Designs by Meghan Mullens.

Noisy, Colorful, and Lively Card {hybrid}
