Whadya mean? Only ONE??

Papertrey's May Blog Hop was all about flowers! Little did I know that only one submission is allowed! ONE..... really?? Gosh, I could've entered hundreds (maybe a slight exaggeration!) as I very rarely make anything without some sort of flower/floral accent.

Make It Monday#16: Sympathy cards

Fortunately, I have not had the need for a sympathy card, but do have a few in my card cache.... just in case.

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge!



Well..... I've been following the Paptertrey Blog Hop for many,many months now and have never joined in....... that is, 'til now!                        

I love anything floral! These mini cards are a tribute to the colorful style of Betsy Veldman and Papertrey.

A Muse Studio, Poppies and More!

I was really on a roll yesterday and decided that I would just keep goin'......
The husband and kiddies are not too thrilled with the mess that I've created in the dining room, where the light is so much better than in my basement crafting cave!

This last card is so totally inspired by Laurie at SoapboxCreations:
I so LOVE everything she does......

FINALLY... back with some card creations!

Greetings! I'm finally back with some additional a muse studio samples, plus a mish-mash of card craftiness! We had lots of activity here with SAT  and AP exams, PROM and two boys returning from college. So... hopefully, there will be a bit more time spent in the crafting cave.

I taught a very small group of 10 year olds (my first ever attempt at teaching with my new a muse goodies!) and we made two cards, one for Morther's Day and one for Father's Day. I hope that I found the right balance for the girls....... cards that were not too challenging, do-able in 15-20 min. each and allowed them to show some of their personality in each card creation. For the first card I pre-stamped the shirt/tie and let them cut andcolor in any/all parts they desired. Some of the kids followed my expample exactly wihile others really went wild with color (and GLUE!).For the Morther's Day card I broke out all of the Primas and buttons that I've accumulated and just let them go crazy!
