Another Mother's Day Card

Good morning! I hope I don't bore you with my cricut designs...I am really having fun creating the last 2 nights! My poor hubby...he is retired so he is alone all day and then when I come home, the last 2 nights I have been in my craft room!! Alone some more! But he knows where I am at and comes to visit me regularly! Today's card is another creation using a couple of Penny's files...If you have SCAL and a die cutting machine, pay her a visit! I used a cut line file and a Lacy Butterfly file. The solid card stock is from SU, the pattened card stock is Itsy Bitsy from K&Company. And the sentiment is one I designed. I did spray the butterfly with Sparkle Shimmer Spray but it is hard to tell in the picture...I also took some Glittered Pearls and lined the butterfly's body with them. Used Nesties to cut out my sentiment and lightly inked it with Momento ink. This card is going to be for one of my dear DIL for Mother's Day...geez, hope they aren't looking! I will need another one so I may do one more!

Just a reminder...the card from yesterday has not been spoken for and is still available if you have a use for it! Just drop me a line at and I will be glad to send it on to you. It needs a good home!

Well, thanks from the bottom of my heart for coming to visit me! I hope you enjoyed your stay and are inspired by my creations. I will be off to do some visiting with you later on today! I hope you have a wonderful day today.

Mother's Day Card

Hello! I know it has been a few days since I have posted...I have been very busy outside the last few days and have also been contemplating my card designing techniques. I have not really been using my cricut at all lately...It is a very expensive machine to just be sitting collecting dust! Then I happened on a web site that totally got my creative juices flowing...Penny Duncan Creations. Penny is a very, very giving and kind person. I struggled with the folding of this cut and she very quickly answered my call for help! If you have a die cutting machine and can cut SVG files, please go pay Penny a visit...her files are awesome and FREE. What a gift Penny has! On my card, I actually used 2 of Penny's files...the cutting line file with all the folds and also the swirly border on the top and bottom of the card. I used one of my EK Success punches to create small scalloped edge on the border and then also matted that green border with a white border that had also been edged with that same punch. I added some pearls around the design and the sentiment in the middle of the card is one of my new sentiment creations that will be in the Stamping Boutique store soon...yes, I have been creating a few new sentiments. Hopefully tomorrow I will post a preview of the new ones in the store. Well, I hope you enjoyed my creation today....AND because I really do not have anyone to give this card to as my Mother passed away a few years ago, I will send this card to the first person that sends me an email requesting it! So if you could use this card, please let me know...I will send an envie with it! Thanks for stopping in to see me and I hope you have a blessed day today. I promise to get back into the swing of things and be by to visit you today!
