The DP is from K&Co Berry Sweet pack and isn't it just so sweet? I coordinated SU gable green and some white satin ribbon with it. The punch is a new Fiskars one called effervence or something like that. The charm is from a pack I picked up at Mike's- gotta love that jewelry aisle don't you? Then a couple prima's to finish it off!
Keep the sunshine coming girls!

Today is the day! "View the Inspirational Blog Hop by starting at http://www.theunitystampco.blogspot.com/
Well what else could I use for a blog hop than a bumble bee! Is this not the cutest? I used some DCWV paper and some grosgrain and easy peasy little cards to say "HI!" I could not resist this little guy and so I made 2 of these with just a little variance. They are already out in the mail too!
I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend and getting lots of time to surf blogs or craft or BOTH! Go and check out Jen E blog now she is the next blogger in the HOP!

This card...... there is a little story behind it and it is this (yes, I am going to admit my mistake and allow you all a smile on your faces today, at my expense) So there is the House Mouse challenge (last week) and Kelly over at KLSNS asked if we would participate and I was like, "Sure, that will be fun, I have images!" and she gave me the date and I made the card and sent it over to her. Well low and behold, at some point between me agreeing and who knows when she sent over a sketch to work with - imagine the embarrassment when I went to the HM site on sketch day and see all these wonderful cards with this sketch- which really did not look like mine. I asked Kelly about it and she told me it looked similar so she never questioned me.............. I told her next time just slap me! Oh my............ so now you know............ the rest of the story!

The card is actually a tent card- it still measures the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 but the actual base is smaller and the image extends beyond the base. The image is a CC design from the Hunny Bunny set that I just got from Kelly over at KLStampinNScrapping, isn't he the cutest? I masked it with the High Hopes flower background as well. The base is SU barely banana and the DSP is from K&Co paper pack that I got at Micheal's after Christmas. The image is layered using one of the nesties, (thanks Cheryl!) . Happy Thoughts is from that very set from SU: the brad is DCWV spring set.
So- did you notice the flowers in the back? I used the flower soft on them to make them pop- this stuff is so fun and easy to use. I know you are thinking (if you've not used it) sure Heidi, just like glitter it will be all over. No, really it is not! Just add a little glue, sprinkle the flower soft, tap it down and then tap the rest off back into the jar and done! It doesn't get smooshed either! It is a must. Then of course, the stickles............. a staple in every crafters box.
Have a great weekend!

Include a yellow ribbon
Has to be a Tilda image
Has to have at least 1 flower
So I thought what is better than cherries, Tilda and flower? I inked her up and set her on that bench, it is not really a bench it is the dock by Magnolia and I just left the water ripples off of it and then I left room to set her on a little red cushion. The paper is SU DP which I have just opened! I told you all that I was a hoarder............ I tell you the truth! That paper is retired. LOL!
Well there are a couple gals with some sweet blog candy today as well:

I inked the little CC design image with Tuxedo black and colored it with my copics. I tell you these are quick and easy images to color. The CP is a variety of papers; most of which are K&Co papers and then some SU barely banana, pink piroutte and bashful blue.
I have to say the card is cuter in person, for some reason the lighting just would not cooperate with me today. I hope you enjoy it though!

I stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I used black, white and brocade blue from SU to make the card and embossed with one of the CB folders, I thought it made it look a bit like that nice soft leather.
That is it for today- have a good one.

Hello everyone. This is a card that I put together for a class I am teaching. I absolutely love this paper and it was good b/c I never use my cameo coral cardstock and this really let me bring it out and put it to use. Overall, this card is just a sweet cheerful pick "you up" kind of card and you can always use them. I hope the gals at the class enjoy it.
Sorry it is short today but busy week out here in California.

I colored Tilda with copics along with a couple of balloons, which I cut out and popped up to give it a little dimension. The birthday sentiment is from one of my Stampin Up sets.

The reality is that I was looking for a card the other day that was more of a "just a note" card and I didn't have any left. So I figured I would start with these little guys and of course they didn't take long to make, actually less than 3 min to color them. LOL. My papers are from one of the DCWV cardstock packs.
I hope that seeing these will just make you smile today, nothing fancy but bright, cheerful and fun. Have a splendid day!

What do you all do with yours? Don't forget Magnolia stamps are always 10% off over at KLSNS store AND she has Easter stamps to preorder right now! Plus, if you order $75 worth of product you will get free shipping using code MarchMad.
Ok- you have to come back Monday or Tuesday as I am going to post my Birthday Blog Candy! I figure my birthday is March 14th and you all deserve a chance to win something sweet (I hope you think so anyways!)
