COS31: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU

Hello again! This is my second post so please scroll down if you would like to see my first one. This one is for the CAS on Sunday challenge – A Birthday to Die For.

(A2: Stamps: Simon Says Stamps (Hello You), Inkadinkado (Small bee), StampinUp (Gorgeous Grunge); Cut files: Silhouette; Die: Tim Holtz Alterations (Brackets), Spellbinders (circle))

My first post today mentioned that our son is in the Army. Well, he got married a couple of weeks ago and my new DIL has a birthday this week so I made this card for her. Boy, I hope she likes it! I cut the bee on my Silhouette along with the little honeycomb.

Thanks for stopping by.

Here is a link to  the challenge in case you want to share in the fun.

ATC36: THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

Hi crafty friends. I hope today finds you well and in a crafty mood! For me, the weather was beautiful this morning….77 degrees so Joy and I took a walk. It is so nice to go out and get fresh air now, but this afternoon the rain is supposed to start. So, I am in crafting and have a card to share.

The theme at Addicted to CAS is Far Away and here is my card:

(A2: Stamps: Doodle Pantry (Salute Bunny): Cut file: Silhouette; Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon; Die: Spellbinders)

If you follow my blog you know that 1) I am a proud Army Mom and 2) I strongly support Operation Write Home, so the first thing I thought of when I saw the theme “far away” I thought of our troops in Afghanistan. This card is an AnyHero card that will go in my next box of cards to OWH. It will be given to a soldier who might need some encouragement or something to lift his/her morale. (I use the term soldier to mean any branch of service.)

I used my Silhouette and cut the stars in blue and red. I used the blue to line the red stars and attached white to fill them in. I added a red rhinestone to each star. I printed the sentiment and cut with a Spellbinders oval.

Thanks for stopping by.

LIM168; PS–AG: YOU MAKE ME SMILE BIG

OK This is my second (and last) post for today. This is for the Less Is More and Paper Smooches challenges:

(A2: Stamps: Simon Says (Hello You),  Paper Smooches (Zoo Crew); Dies: Paper Smooches (Zoo Crew), Spellbinders (circle))

The theme at LIM is “something that makes you smile”. The Zoo Crew cuties ALWAYS bring a smile to my face and to take it up a notch, I added an action wobble behind the hippo! The close up picture was me trying to show you the wobble. I don’t know about you but this card does make me smile!

The Paper Smooches challenge is Anything Goes this week. Since I used Paper Smooches stamps and dies I am going to enter there too. I hope the remainder of your Easter is beautiful and blessed!

Thanks for stopping by.
