Lawn Fawnatics Challenge

I'm so excited that Lawn Fawn has created a challenge blog (I was so sad when Lawnscaping Challenges ended)! is the card I created for the first challenge:

I love the creations of Melissa Bickford @justdandystudio.  Her cards are always so colorful and cheery.  She inspired me to create this card!  I used the following Lawn Fawn products:  Treat Yourself, Baked with Love, Sweet Smiles, Big Scripty Words, Heart Stackables,mand Perfectly Plaid Rainbow pattern paper.  Images were colored with Copics, and I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  Here is another card I created using this same style:

Thank you for stopping by!

Happily Ever After

I love making cards, but even more so when the recipients are near and dear to my ❤️.
I created this card for my sister-in-law and her new husband.  It was definitely a labor of love!  The card is a "collaboration" of My Favorite Things (house and trees using Home Sweet Home dies), Simon Says Stamp (sentiment from May 2015 card kit), and Lawn Fawn (clouds, hearts, flowers, pattern paper).  I thought the silver-lined clouds were the perfect addition!  Thanks for taking a look...if there's anyone out there!!

Ellen Hutson Mix-it Up Challenge with Paper Smooches

Two blog posts in a row!!! That's a first!  With no time to spare, here is my card for the current Mix-It Up Challenge over on the Ellen Hutson blog:
Just had to use the Chubby Chum dog by Paper Smooches, and paired it with some stamps/dies from Up the Happy and Bear Ware from Essentials by Ellen.  The sentiment is firm Paper Smooches Flun and Flirty set.  This card was a quickie, relatively speaking...a rarity for me!  Thank you for checking out my blog!

Pop-Up Birthday Card

My husband asked me to make his cat-loving sister a birthday card, so of course I searched my stash for kitty stamps.  I had recently purchased the Meow You Doin'? set by Lawn Fawn.  Perfect!  I could color the cats to match her cats.  I knew I wanted the card to be a special one, so I decided to create my very first pop-up card.  I used Lawn Fawn's recently released pop-up die to make it happen.

It took me an obscene amount of time to make this card, but it was fun to create.  It took an equally obscene amount of time to capture a photo that was halfway presentable.  I definitely need to work on my photography skills!  Sets used (all by Lawn Fawn):
Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up, Meow Ya Doin'?, Year 4 Hippo Birdie, Party Animals, grassy border die, stitched clouds, Mermaid for You (fish).  I used paper from the Perfectly Plaid line.  The images were colored with Copics.
Here's another card I made recently using the new Wonderful Window die set by Lawn Fawn:
Again...need to work on getting a better set up for taking photos.

Thank you to any of you out there who checked out this post.  Much appreciated!!
