One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

MIM #279 Curved Sentiments

Ashley has a video up for the Make It Monday where she shows how to make straight sentiments into a curve.
I used the Twig Wreath and all the little flowers to make this spring looking wreath (along with some stenciled butterflies from the Color Pop:  Butterfly set).  I added a piece of gingham to the side of the card.  Did I get carried away with my wreath?  I just kept adding more and more to the it!

Verve ~ Coffee Lovers and a FREEBIE!

Verve is participating in the Coffee Lover's blog Hop and they have a free digi...
Now I am NOT a coffee drinker, but I do drink tea and I do know that many need that cup of joe first thing after rising in the morning....so I incorporated the sentiment with a coffee cup (or tea). Actually Julee has some cups with a tea bag hanging over the side of the cup and a sentiment says: You've got this in the bag!  cute, huh?  You can go HERE to the Verve blog and get your free digi and play along and enter to win a gift voucher to the VERVE store!

Merry Monday with Deanne

Deanne is looking for red, green and white on our christmas cards this week at the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge # 241
I made my little scene with the Hero Arts Layering Christmas Tree and the Avery Elle Christmas Presents stamps. I also used a Li'l Inkers Stitched Oval die.  I stamped my tree with Altenew Green Fields ink cubes and I colored in the presents with various shades of reds and greens with copics.  I mounted the top oval shape with dimensional adhesive so that the tree was sitting back further on the card.  
I really like how this turned out!
I hope you are inspired to play along with us this week and I look forward to seeing your card in the gallery!
Heart Hugs, friends!

I used may stamp sets to create this scene, inspired by this photo on the left with the sweet little bird!

Baby blog Hop

It is a BABY GIRL BLOG HOP FOR 
Little Miss Croghan!
Congratulations Lesley and Corey!
This is the beginning of all things wonderful and what a fantastic way to grow your family  with a new human little Croghan (versus all the fur babies you have) !!!

Lesley totally took me by surprise several years ago when I received an email from her asking if I would like to join the team on Seize the Birthday!  That was something I didn't even have on my radar and boy was I excited and nervous!  But I said YES!!  And have loved being on that challenge with all those awesome girls.  Then a couple years later she wrote me again and asked if I would like to join the Merry Monday team.  OMG!!  Lesley opened doors for me and challenged me in ways she will really never know, but without her I would NOT be where I am today with my card making and I would definitely not have all the amazing friendships that have resulted because of her!  Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to design for two of your many challenges Lesley!  I pray for only the very best for you and your new little one!!  Congratulations!


I couldn't resist CASing a card from PTI for this darling Baby girl card for Lesley!
We have a Blog Hop going to let Lesley know we love her and are praying for her and her family with the delivery of this little baby girl.
We would love for you to join us in this baby blog hop.
Go HERE to play along and bring baby cards to Lesley!

Heart Hugs, friends!
