Pause, Dream, Enjoy Linky Party #9 ~ Flowers

Good Morning.  Welcome to another new fun linky party at Pause, Dream, Enjoy.  Our theme is flowers ~ use flowers on any type of project.  The following card is what I made for the flower theme.  But I have a confession to make....I can not find my notes anywhere telling me what supplies I used for it.  And I have been sick in bed for the past few days so sitting here typing is making me extremely dizzy.  I need to get some strength back soon.  Anyhow, here is the card and all the pictures.  If I find the list when I am feeling better I will edit the post.  For now, here it is:


and close up:

Okay, I am off to lie down again.  But please do join us for our linky party at Pause, Dream, Enjoy.   I can not wait to see what you do.

P.S.  June 5, 2014  ~ I know the stamp used was  Kraftin' Kimmie "Cherish the Little Moments" and I am entering this into the Krafty Guest Contest.

Nothing Runs Like a Deere

Hello and happy Easter weekend.  Not only is today the middle of a long weekend, it is also a very special day for me as my son turns 25.  Wow, where has the time gone?!?  I am so proud of the man he has become.  He works hard to provide for his wife and two children and is always busy trying to keep ahead of the game. In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with friends and riding his motorcycle.  And since he has moved to the country, outdoor things have been added to his favourites too.  We were together yesterday and he is celebrating today with other family.  This is the card I made for him:

Pause, Dream, Enjoy Linky Party #8 ~ Anything Goes!!!!

Good morning.  Welcome to another linky party at Pause, Dream, Enjoy and this time we have a super easy one for ya....."ANYTHING GOES".  So I am positive you will be able to make something and link it up to show us in the next two weeks.

For my project today, I have a party invitation I made for a special little girl who is turning 7 at the end of this month.  Wow, how time flies.....it is my niece's daughter and I remember when it was my niece turning 7.  I also made matching tags for the mason jars that she is giving as loot bags.

Patterned Paper ~ Three Bugs in A Rug
Cricut Cartridges ~ Accent Essentials (circle)
~ Birthday Cakes (teacup)
~ Sweet Treats (candle, flower)
Punches ~ Martha Stewart

Bling ~ The Robin's Nest "Mardi Gras"

Thanks for coming by.  I have had a lot going on in my life and crafting has been put on the back burner for sure this year.  But I attended Scrapfest in Kitchener this past weekend and it reminded me of how much I enjoy paper crafting and how relaxing I find it.  Maybe I will make more time to be in my craft room; maybe not, but we shall see.  I do appreciate all who come by and see my sporadic posts and projects.  

Until next time,

Kard Klass at Kraftin' Kimmie's Krafty Kave Round Two

Good Morning.  On the weekend I was able to go to another class with my friend Kim Reid of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  We found our way, arrived on time and I was excited to be participating again.  Just like last time, we made four gorgeous cards using three of the March new release stamps and a cute little older image of Lulu.

Here are the four cards in order that we made them:





All super fun cards and I can not pick my favourite.  I LOVE them all. If you get a chance,  be sure to attend a class in the Krafty Kave.  Keep an eye out for the next one advertised on Kraftin' Kimmie's Blog or her Facebook page.  

Have a GREAT day.  Spring really is finally in the air.
