Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Straight from the Nest!

Happy Tuesday everyone! This week's TTC is Straight from the Nest. I made this "quick" card for you today...

The bird and perch are just 2 layers then I added twine, a black gem for his eye, and a tag from Once Upon a Princess (my go-to cart for tags - I love them!). The blue bird is cut from some really fun glitter paper that I just got from Joanns - it cuts really nice and the glitter isn't extreamly loose like some other glitter papers I have used. The best part is that they were on sale for 5 for a $1 - what a deal! :) The sentiment is from our Scrappy Moms Stamps Quirky Quotes set.

I hope you enjoyed my card today - please come and play along with us. I hope that you all have a wonderful week!

Corner Bookmarks - So cute! :)

Happy Friday!!! Here's to hoping everyone has a WONDERFUL weekend!

My project for today is two corner book marks that I made for my oldest daughter and I to share. We both love to read and never seem to have enough bookmarks around. :)

And just look how adorble this little puppy is guarding your page for you!

I made the blackboard and apple SVG file with MTC and the ADORABLE puppy is from the Silhouette store. The sentiments are from our new Scrappy Moms Stamps School Days and Raining Cats and Dogs sets. I found the tutorial for the bookmarks online - you can see it HERE. :)

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today!

Birds and Birdcages Hop!

Welcome to the Birds and Birdcages Hop hosted by Sandra (365 Days of Cricut)! Wasn't Celeste's project fabulous!?

I went a little out of my norm for this project...

I found this adorable little birdcage SVG file and decided to give it a try. I lined the window with 2 layers of wax paper and put a battery powered tea light inside. The ribbon, flower and tag finish off the project. I used SMS Quirky Quotes and 3 small jewels for the tag. :)

Thank you for "hopping" by - I hope you enjoyed my little project! Your next step on the hop is the very crafty Monica.

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Pack Your Bags!

Sorry this is up so late!! LOL :)

I made a quick little card for my project today. And I do mean little... I forgot to set the size on my Gypsy when I made the base of the card so it cut at about 4" x 3.7" instead of 5.5" x 4.25". Oh, well - at least it still fits in an A2 envelope. :)

I used a little stickles on her drink and lips for just a touch of glam. The sentiment is from SMS Quirky Quotes set and the bakers twine is also from Scrappy Moms Stamps. Please come play along with us for this weeks Terrific Tuesday Challenge!

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's projects too. We are going to have a Back to School Hop on Friday, please come join us for a chance to win a Scrappy Moms Stamps set of your choice!
