Cryogen White and Pan Pastel

There is nothing difficult about making today's card! I started out with Cryogen White Cardstock from The PaperTemptress then inked up a background stamp with Versamark and smeared pan pastels over it and bam, the background was done! I felt guilty about it being so easy so I cut a piece of Heavy Duty Clear Vellum cardstock into a little banner, heat embossed a sentiment and that was it!

You Float My Boat

My card today features You Float My Boat and matching die from Lawn Fawn and for the background I used Constellation from Hero Arts.  The card was sent to a dear friend who stepped up to the plate after my run in with Mother Nature and helped me until I was back on my feet! She truly was a lifesaver!

Veggin Out

With the exception of maybe a tomato plant in a pot, today's card is as close to a garden as I'm going to have since I have a very, very black thumb! Thanks to the adorable Veggin Out stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps, I can have perfect vegetables all year long!

Tweet Spots

The Easter Bunny brought me a basket full of special treats to enjoy, no eggs, no chocolate, just fabulous crafting goodness. One of the sets in the basket was Tweet Spots, from The Alley Way Stamps, that I used to create today's card.

Birds of a Feather

Shhhh, have a peek but quiet please! Birds of a Feather from The Alley Way Stamps, is sitting on her one and only egg, keeping it warm until it hatches which could happen at any moment! She's a first-time mommy, so understandably, she's tired and a little nervous!

Cuddly Critters Rabbit

HAPPY EASTER! Your house was the last stop for the Easter Bunny a/k/a Cuddly Critters Rabbit from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, and one of the rabbit helpers reported hearing a suspicious sound coming from inside an egg. So you might want to use extreme care when biting into any of the eggs they left for you to find!

Brown Bag

To create today's card I started with Neenah Desert Storm (Kraft) cardstock as the base and added a background of Blueberry Brown Bag then with the help of a stencil and white embossing paste, added the dragonflies. The focal dragonfly was made using a die and Oliver Brown Bag and Ice Jade Vellum. All the cardstock used is from one of my favorite places to shop, The PaperTemptress!

Hilda and Hercules

Look who's out for a quiet walk, it's Hilda and Hercules from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps! Hercules looks like a grump but that's how he always looks when he sees a cat and he's on a leash! He wouldn't dream of dragging his beloved Hilda down the street but if that cat dares to step in his yard, all bets are off!  The background is Retro Rubrics Backing Paper from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.

Teddy Bears Picnic

The new Just Inklined release Teddy Bears Picnic brings back such sweet memories of me sitting by the radio on Saturday mornings and listening to the announcer holler "There's No School Today" followed by the song, Teddy Bears Picnic! I do not remember learning much at school, I was a recess, bus ride and boys kinda of student, but I remember most of the words to the song. If you care to have a listen, click here.

Old Goat

One of the things that I did not get a chance to share with you was a birthday card for my brother.  He is so old, he no longer has birthdays, instead he celebrates anniversaries of anniversaries of his 29th birthday! The image I used for his card is Old Goat from QKR Stampede and the sentiment says it all!
