Aces High!

I hope everyone had a great week!
I did because I got to do a little bit of card making.
I was inspired by From The Heart's sketch challenge.
I needed a card for my nephew who is a card dealer in Mississippi.
I found this image from From the Heart, and it was just perfect!
I used a DCWV red glittered card.
I added 4 playing cards and then my "Happy Birthday" sentiment.
Love this stamp!

Laundry Days

It's finally Friday!!!
I am so excited!
It has been such a looong week, but this weekend should be more fun.
Spending some time with my family is my favorite thing to do.
But for now, I want to share something I created using
this really cute Lacy Sunshine stamp.
It's called Mayde Laundry Days.
I love this new series of stamps from Lacy Sunshine!
They are just perfect for tags for wedding shower gifts
or housewarming gifts of cleaning supplies.
Just adorable!
I have been looking for something to make for my laundry room,
and this was just perfect!!!
Now my laundry room is a little bit more cheerful. :)

For my card this week, I went with a shabby chic theme
with their new stamp "A Little Time for Me".

I used some fabulous paper from Carta Bella Paris Girl collection 6x6 stack.
I did cut part of the paper out to make the "Café" sign
and the "Carnival" Banner.

I added a white doily, white lace punch, and just plain ol' white lace!
A few flowers, pearls, and crystals, and I was finished.

Looking Gorgeous

We Make a good team

Aren't they fantastic?!
For my project as a Guest Design Team Member I have made a birthday
card using the Looking Gorgeous stamp from this new launch.
I think she is absolutely beautiful!
She looks like she is all dressed up and ready for a night out on the town.


I used some really pretty paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found.
I added some gorgeous lace, some pretty roses, and some nice little brads.
I also added some brown netting along the top of the lace,
and as a bow at the base of the roses.
I love this stamp!

And don't forget to check out All Dressed Up's current challenge.
The theme this week is Clean & Simple.
These images would be great to use for this challenge, plus you
have the chance to win 3 stamps of your choice.
The only problem is picking out only 3. Their stamps are just incredible.
I hope that you will take a few minutes to join them on their
blog site and see what other projects their fabulous
Design Team have, because they are truly fabulous!
They also have a Facebook Group which is a lot of fun.

Good Morning!
We are having another exciting challenge over at Just Inspirational Challenges.
Our theme this week is flowers.
All you have to do is use flowers. Something to get us in the mood for Spring.
We have a couple of great sponsors
I hope that you will take a few minutes and check out what these designers have in their stores.  They have something for everyone.
This week I got to play with a cute little stamp from Crafty Sentiments.
And since I have been into making tags, I couldn't resist making another one.
I decided to go with a western theme.
I used some old fashioned looking postcard paper from My Mind's Eye.
I also added some pretty flowers from Bo Bunny. 
I added a brad to the center of the flowers for a nice touch.
Then I topped it all off with some cute fibers and ribbons.
Please join us over at Just Inspirational Challenges for our new challenge.
