More Mini's

I have been addicted to mini cards I guess...but they are so quick to make and I think kinda cute.

"Purse" holder for the mini's

I made matching envelopes too.  They are so quick and easy.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day.

Another Father's Day Card

Thanks to wonderful instructions/video from Mary @ Cardz TV, I tried my hand at folding paper to make a paper shirt.  Here is my first attempt.  I know it is not perfect but I still think it came out cute.

I used brads for the shirt buttons and a stamp that says "A family is a circle of love".  I wrote a Father's Day note inside.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Father's Day Week-end.

Color Challenge - Card 2

I really didn't like the 1st card I submitted for the challenge because I think it looks like it was just thrown together without much thought...anyway...after completing an embroidery job, I felt like I could devote more time to the challenge by My Pink Stamper.  Here is my second card. Color challenge was to use orange, green, and turquoise.

I used DCWV paper and I think it is from the Safari pack.  I also used Bazzill Basics Paper - Dotted Swiss, and The Paper Studio - Pearlized Cardstock.

I used Cricut cartridge Cricut Sampler for the lion @ 3 1/2" and Cuttin' Up cartridge."Roar" @ 1".

I added  google eyes and used a wobble.

On the inside is stamped "Happy Birthday".

My Pink Stamper Color Challenge

The Pink Stamper has a color challenge using Teal, Orange and Green and another color.  Here is my entry.  My card is the S fold and I used DCWV Adhesive mat stack Prints and The Paper Studio Textured Brights Cardstock.  I also used The Paper Studio Gemstones Assortment, EK punch and stamp that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. The butterflys are from KandCompany.  Thanks for looking.  Have a wonderful day.

Sending you a little prayer....that God will keep you in His care.

I just recently started this blog strictly for crafts, but it has been a little hard not posting to my other blog.  More cards at  This blog was just a "in general blog" with personal happenings and my machine embroidery projects, but then I got into cards...

We are traveling for a few months and I have a travel blog at
