HIMCR #39 Hideous Paper Challenge

Hello Eveyrone and Happy Saturday!!

The challenge this week, the 4th Saturday of the month, is Mix it Up SATURDAY! And this week's it is Hideous Paper challeng.  We all have those papers that are well, hideous! So let's take them and turn them into something beautiful or at least get a good laugh trying!

It was hard to decide on paper to use cause I love all my paper but this one was not really one that I do love.
So I thought I would use it to make a Thank you card!
I'm not sure what the name of the paper is but I remember getting a about 4 or 5 years ago in a a big pack from Costco. 
Blue paper is Light blue Coredinations
THANKS is cut at 1" from Creative Memories cartridge This & That
Dutch Blue ink around the edges of the card

Thanks to everyone who checks out my creation for the week!! Remeber to check out all the Design Team creations:

 Then head over to HIMCR to enter the challenge!!

Have a great day!!

HIMCR #38 KISS! Keep It Simple Sweetie!

Hello Everyone!!

It's time for this weeks challenge!  I had fun making my card but it was so hard to keep it simple!  I love how it turned out.

The challenge is KISS! Keep is Simple Sweetie! This will sort of depend on your style. Like if you always so lots of layers them keep it less, or less embellishments, just make a simple project.

4" egg card cut from the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge
2 butterfly made with the Creative Memories punch
Light purple and dark purple card stock from my scrap box

Be sure to head over to Hiding in My Craft Room and check out the challenge!

Also check out the rest of the HIMCR Design Team Creations!

Can't wait to see what everyone makes this week!

HIMCR #37 Super Scraps Saturday

I can't believe it's Saturday already and time for another challenge.  This week went by so fast!!  This weeks challenge is Super Scraps Saturday where you dig out those scraps. Sometimes there might be something extra like once I did 'Almost a card' and used pieces that were stamped or cut out but never made it to a project!  I had so much fun making my item this week!  I love this butterfly paper I had in my scrap box and thought it was perfect for a Spring Time layout!  What a great way to get you in the mood for Spring after have snow this week again!!!

Card for a cause

I made this card last week and I have been so busy that I haven't had time to post it.  Laurie at Hiding in My Craft Room posted this last week and Faith and I were both so excited to make Larry a card.  I love how Faith wanted to know more about Larry other than he had Leukemia.  So I went to his blog and we read it together.  He likes Star Wars and Soccer just like Faith and Hunter.  I had 2 perfect stamp sets.  Faith used the soccer set for her card and I went with the Star Wars stamps. 

Here is my card I made for Larry! 

Here is the link to Laurie's blog with all the information about Larry.  I was happy to help out and hope you will be able to!

Cuddle bug Star embossing folder
Scrap red and white cardstock I had in my scrap box
Star Wars stamps not sure what the name of them are.  I found them a few years ago on Craiglist cause my husband and kids are nuts for Star Wars!!
