Blue Bird Napkin Card

  Hello, Having some chilly weather here on Mother's Day. Enjoying a hot cup of coffee before I get to busy. 

 Thunderstorms with lightning heading this way. Looks like I might be getting a little wet later going to see my Mom. Hopefully the storms won't last to long.

Sharing with you all the card I created for my Mom for Mother's Day. 

 

 



This one was created using a napkin. Isn't that napkin gorgeous with those sweet little blue birds. Oh I love it so much.

I wasn't for sure where to place the sentiment because I didn't want to cover up any of the pretty image. So I decided to put it in the center. 

I also added a light blue sheer ribbon so that the image would still show through. The sentiment is from S.U. I also added a little pearl next to the sentiment.  I think she will love this one. I know I do.

 

Also I wanted to share a recipe with you all. This cake is called by several names. But I call it Mandarin Sunshine Cake.

 I made one this past Easter and I'm making one today to take to my Mom's for the dinner. Going to be adding some candles to this one. It's one of my sister's birthday today.

 

Mandarin Sunshine Cake 

Ingredients for cake-

Butter Cake Mix

1 can mandarin oranges 11 ounce w/juice 

3/4 cup oil

4 eggs

 

Ingredients for frosting

1 cool whip

1 - 3 ounce vanilla instant pudding

1 - 20 ounce can crushed pineapple (drained)

 

Preheat oven 350 and grease and flour a 9x13 pan

In large bowl mix cake mix with mandarin oranges w/ juice and oil.

Add eggs one at a time and mix well.

Pour batter into pan and bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool completely


Frosting

In medium bowl, mix pudding w/ crushed pineapple (drain) Mix in a tub of cool whip. Put into fridge for 15-20 minutes and frost cake.

I like to keep back a few mandarin oranges to place on top of cake. 

 

 

As you can see this cake is pretty easy to make and it is really good. So hope you will give it a try.

Well I need to get off here and start the cake. I will be spending a few days with my Mom. Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's.

She Believed She Could Encouragment Card

  Hello, happy Friday to you. I made another card for the Things with Wings linky party at STAMPlorations and a few other challenges.

 


 Was looking through my stamps to make an encouragement card and spotted the This Little Piggy stamp set from Stampin Up.

It is such a cute stamp set and it's perfect for the Things with Wings linky challenge.

Stamped the image once on white paper and once on pink cardstock. Cut out the pink and added some shading on it with Pretty In Pink Ink and also used a pink alcohol marker. 

Cardstock used- Pretty In Pink and White. The flower paper is from a Maggie Holmes collection called Bloom.

Added some stickles to the wings. I popped up the stitched circle die with dimensionals and added some jute twine. 

This card was a fun one to make and I think it turned out cute.

This will be my last card for the Things with Wings linky challenge over a STAMPlorations. I have had so much fun creating them all.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a fun and crafty weekend!

Thank You So Much Butterfly Card

  Hello, I have another card to share for today. I have been having so much fun making cards for the STAMPlorations Things with Wings Linky Party. 

Today I have another butterfly card. I had received that butterfly die cut in some happy mail. I send out a lot of thank you cards, so I thought this die cut would be perfect for one. 



The thank you sentiment is from S.U. and the so much sentiment is from a stamp set called Coffee Joy from STAMPlorations.

Cardstock- yellow and black and the designers series paper is from S.U. I also added some white ribbon.

  Have you linked your own project yet? -- any project is welcome as long as there are wings in it -- butterflies, dragonflies, bees, birds, fairies, bugs, bees, pterodactyl, planes, cupid...anything that flies, really...or even sentiments that mention/suggest flight/flying/objects with wings! :o)

BEE Happy Card!

  Happy Friday! So glad you stopped by. I have been a busy BEE making a card for some challenges. One of those challenges is the Things with Wings Linky Challenge from STAMPlorations.

I thought it would be fun to make a card using an image I created. So here is my card. 

 


 


I hand drew that cute little bee, scanned the image and printed it out. Would have been easier if my printer wasn't almost out of ink. So I had to use the one my husband uses. 

Colored it with Spectrum Noir and Master's Touch alcohol markers.

Cut out some hexagons with a die from Spellbinders. Used Summer Sun card stock and a few pattered papers from my stash.

Stamps used are from C.C.Designs, Pretty Pink Posh and Recollections.

The stitched cloud die cut is from the Dollar Tree

Made the black scalloped layer on my Cricut


I had a lot of fun putting this one together and really fun using an image I made. Never thought to do that before.

 Thanks for visiting and would love for you to leave a comment. 

Hope you all have a great weekend. Stay Safe & Stay Crafty!

A Happy Hello

  Hello Crafty friends, Hope you are doing well and staying safe. I have been having fun creating cards for some challenges. I have another one to share with you all today.

 


 
I haven't really did very many tropical cards but I love this Image from Sheepski Designs called Tropical.

It took me two days to finish coloring the image because I get so nervous when I color. I started with the leaves and didn't know if I liked them or not. Was going to print out another image and try again but I thought let me try one more section. So I did the flower. That was o.k. so I kept going section by section.

 Then I came to the breast area. I wanted it to look more like ruffled feathers, so I took three different gray colors and randomly did dots of color. Wasn't for sure if it would turn out because I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to coloring. 

I was so glad when I finally finished it and I'm happy with the way it turned out. 

I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the image. The sentiments come from two different stamp sets from Trinity Stamps. Green paper is from my stash and the ribbon is Melon Mambo from Stampin Up. 


I am entering this card into the Things with Wings linky party over a STAMPlorations. 

There is still time to enter a things with wings project if you want. You have until  Friday, May 7, 11:55 p.m. to enter a project and you can enter up to 7 projects. 

 

I am also entering this card into the following challenges

Life Is Beautiful Card

  Hello glad you stopped by. We are already more than  half way through April. Seems to be going by so fast. 

I have been having some fun in my craftroom creating some cards for some challenges.  

STAMPlorations is having their Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party. My last two cards that I made was with birds. I entered them both in the linky party.

Today I have another card that I created for the link up and for a few other challenges.




For this card I used a stencil from STAMPlorations called Bloomdalascopic. This was my first time using a stencil and as you can see, I didn't do the best job at keeping the colors from mixing together and thought about starting over and seeing if I could do a little better the second try. But I decided to use it. 

It was actually a lot of fun to get my ink pads out and try a stencil. I'm going to have to get some more. 

I received that pretty little butterfly in some happy mail that someone had sent me. Glad to find the perfect card for it. 

The embossing folder is called Seeing Spots, All the inks used are from S.U. 

The sentiment is from My Creative Time stamp set called Cherish this Moment. Also used a scalloped rectangle cutting die and Mellow Moss Ribbon.

If you would like to join in on the fun and create a Things with Wings project there is still time. If you don't want to make anything you can still hop along and see the awesome creations from the design team. 

Here is a link for you.

Enjoy Life Bird Card

  Hello, So glad  you came by for a visit. Today I wanted to share with you a card I made.


 

I am a part of a card crafter's facebook group and most of us send out happy mail. I received this bird stamp recently and wanted to try it out.

She had bought the set from the Dollar Tree. I was actually surprised to here that they were now carrying some stamps. 

The stamp quality isn't the best. You really can't expect great quality from the dollar tree. But I placed it in my Misti and it did seem to help it. The sentiment also came with the set.

Colored it with alcohol markers. Thought this embossing folder was perfect for this card. Also used a stitched round cutting die and some twine.

I am entering this card in the Things with Wings Linky Party over at STAMPlorations. I have already one card entered and I had to make another one. I am hoping to make a few more. Birds are my favorite animal and I love Spring. So this Blog Hop and Linky Party is so fun for me. 

Hope you get a chance to hop along and see the great projects from the design team. They shared several techniques that I am excited to try. Full of Inspiration. 

Hope you get a chance to link up a Things with Wings project. 

Here is a link to the blog hop and also to the linky party.

Your'e Tweet Thank You Card

 I have been going through some of my older stamps and I have several that I have never used. That's kind of shameful. So I decided it was time to start using these stamps.

So today I am sharing a card with one of those older stamps. 

 


 The bird and cage are from a stamp set called Fresh from American Crafts. The bird paper is from a paper pack from Maggie Holmes.

Polka dot paper is from my stash. Sentiment is from an old set from Studio G. Also used a rounded corner rectangle die, yellow ribbon and a pink sequins. 

It felt good to use a stamp that I had never used. I'm sure there are some of you that have some unloved stamps as well.  

I'm going to continue going through some of my older stamps and making some cards with them. 

Stamplorations is celebrating Spring by having a Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky party. Great inspiration from the design team. 

I love Spring and my favorite animal is a bird so I had to play along and create a card for the Linky Party. 

 Here is a link if you would like to enter.

Three Block Flower Card

  Hello, hope you all had a nice Easter. We did, was upset I couldn't make it to Church but we had a nice Easter dinner here. 

  We have been having some chilly weather. Was feeling more like winter than spring.  But the last few days have been so nice.

Today I am sharing a Thank you card with you. It was so easy to make. 


 

I was trying to think of a quick design for a thank you card and came across one from a crafter that I follow on youtube.

 As soon as I saw it, I knew that it was what I needed.

For the flower I used two flower punches that a friend gave me a few years ago. I forgot I had it and thought it looked pretty good with this card. 

The Thank you stamp used is from Ms.Sparkle and Co. from JoAnn's.

Here is a link on how to make the card if you would like to try it. 

  JessB- Creative "card" iology


I will definitely be making more of these. I love a simple card.

Well that's it for me today. Trying to catch up on laundry and then will be going out to pick up the sticks in the yard. 

I would rather be in my craftroom. Hopefully later tonight I can get a little fun craft time in. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Happy Spring Card & Hashbrown Cass.

  Hello everyone, Nice sunny morning hear in Indiana today.  The weather has been crazy lately. Going to have some chilly nights this week. Down in the 20s and 30s.

Did you know when the first day of Spring was? Well I sure did. Almost everyday for the past several months my Mom has told me that the first day of Spring is March 20th. 

My sweet Mom is in her 80s and could not wait for Spring. So today I am sharing with you a Spring card that I have made for her.

 

 

 


I always get nervous when I know I'm going to be coloring something. But I'm o.k. with how it turned out. 

I know you can't tell but I added a little green in the centers of the flowers. Thought that might make them look a little more realistic. 

The daffodil image is from SheepSki Designs. I colored it with Master's Touch and Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. 

I recently won that pretty sheer black ribbon. Love how sparkly it is. It's from Stampin Up.  I will definitely be ordering some.

I'm sure that this card will bring a big smile to my sweet Mom. Love her so much. 


I also thought I would share another recipe with you all. My family always loves when I make Hashbrown Casserole. So I thought this would be a good one to share. 


Hashbrown Casserole

Ingredients needed-

One large bag of frozen shredded Hashbrown

1 can of cream of celery soup (can also use chicken, potato, mushroom). I like the celery

3/4 stick melted butter

 1 and a half cup sour cream

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

A little dried onion flakes - (Optional) You can also use diced onion

Pepper and salt to taste 

A few shakes of dried parsley flakes (optional)

Preheat oven to 350

In a extra large bowl combined all ingredients except hashbrowns. After mixing add frozen hashbrown and mix well.

Pour in a sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish. 

Topping

In medium bowl mix together 2 cups cornflakes with 1/4 cup melted butter. Using the mixing spoon I crush them just a little. Sprinkle over top of hashbrown mixture. 

Bake in a 350 oven for around 45 minutes or until bubbly and golden.

This recipe is easy to make. I love to make it in the cold winter months.  This is also known as funeral potatoes. Nice for get togethers like Thanksgiving and Christmas.

 


 Thanks so much for visiting. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Happy Spring to you.

Love, Coffee & Flowers

  Hey Crafter's, So glad you could stop by. I have been having so much fun on the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop. Love seeing all the amazing coffee,Tea and Hot Cocoa cards and other creations. So much Inspiration packed into one hop.

 On my last post I shared a coffee card that I entered into the hop.

Today I wanted to share with you another coffee card. I had so much fun making it.

 



 

I used the But First Coffee Stamp Set on this one. It's from Journal's for Life and they are one of the Super Sponsors. It was my first time using this set and I love it! I colored the image with alcohol markers. 

This was also my first time using the round Spellbinders die set that I stamped the image on. 

 I thought this sentiment was perfect for my card.  It's from Graciellie. By the sentiment I added a little flower that I stamped and fussy cut. It's also from the Journal's for Life set. Used markers from S.U. to color it. Added a little gemstone on the other side.

My two favorite colors are purples and greens. So I loved the bright green sheer ribbon with the shimmery lavender cardstock.


 There is still time to make a project and play along. There is some  AWESOME Super Sponsors that are having giveaways and they are also having some great sales on their products.

(You Are In My Prayers) Sympathy Card

  Today I am sharing with you a Sympathy card. Yes, another sympathy card. Sadly I have made several lately. 


 

I made this card for my best friend. Her Mom passed away and I wanted to make her a card to let her know how sorry I was to hear about her passing.  

First time using this stamp set. Thought the flowers would look pretty in blue.  I love flower stamps. Hoping I won't have a need for anymore Sympathy cards for a long time.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Hope you have a good day and God bless.

Crafter Thank You Card

  Hello Crafter's, Glad you could stop by. I was looking through my paper and seen this retired Stampin Up paper. So decided to use it on a thank you card.

 

 

Not sure of the name of the Designer's Series paper used but I do like It and thought it was a good color to use with the scalloped die. 

Someone sent me that little scissor die and I think it's so cute. I cut it once in a shinny silver and once in black. Just used the bottom part of the black. 

I made several of these cards. Sending them with happy mail to the paper crafter's that have sent me cards and goodies in a paper crafter group on Facebook. 

 That's all I have to share today. Hope you can make it back. Would love for you to leave a comment. Stay Safe!

Elements of Style Sympathy Card

 On my last post I shared with you a sympathy card. It was for my husbands cousin. Here sister had passed from the virus. Today's card is for her Mom. I know it's been hard on her losing her daughter Connie. 

 




 Made this card using the stamp Set called Elements of Style from Stampin Up. Colored it with some alcohol markers. I did cut out a few extra flowers so that they would hang over the oval die.

 Thought the brick embossing folder would look nice on this card. Also used a oval stitched die and a green sheer ribbon with gold trim. The sentiment is from an old sponge stamp set. 

That's all from me today friends. Hoping your all safe and well. Blessings to you all.

Winter Sympathy Card

  Hello, Hope you all are doing well. Today I wanted to share with you a Sympathy card I made. 

Just writing this post brings tears to my eyes. My husbands cousin passed away recently from Covid, She was only 57. This card is for her sister. 





I was so sad while making this card. Her passing was a shock to us all. Her husband also passed. It's just heartbreaking. 

I really need to make Sympathy cards ahead because this one was a hard one to make.

 I think that's going to be all from me today.  Blessings to you all, Stay Safe my friends.

What I Love Birthday Card

  Hello, Glad you stopped by. Hope you all are doing well. It's a cold morning here in Indiana. Enjoying a cup of hot coffee. We have around 7 inches of snow. Thankful we didn't get the amount of snow that they were calling for. Grand kids have been out of school all this week. They are doing e-learning. 

 This snow storm has effected so many parts of the U.S. Continuing prayers for the people in Texas that are still without heat and electricity and also North Carolina that was hit with a Tornado.

For my post today I wanted to share a birthday card that I made. So I decided on using my newest stamp set. It's a set from Stampin Up called What I Love.




This stamp set is no longer available. I purchased it on e-bay and got it for a great price. 

For the flowers I used Pink Pirouette and Ruby Red and used So Saffron for the centers. I didn't use the leaf stamp that came with the set. I decided to use a die that I had. I think I used Certainly Celery cardstock for the leaves.

 I thought the embossing folder would be perfect for this card. Don't remember the name of it.

I had wanted to get this stamp set when it came out but didn't.  So glad  I found it at such a great deal.

Roses for Mom Card

  Hello Crafter's. Hope your doing well. It will soon be Valentines Day. I will be leaving today to spend a few days with my Mom.

She doesn't like to be left alone on Valentines Day. So before I leave I wanted to share with you the card that I made her. 


  

 


I used a stamp set is from Studio Light. I stamped the roses in Pink Pirouette and Ruby Red. My Mom's favorite color is teal. She has teal in every room of her house, So instead of green leaves I decided on making them teal. 

I cut the oval die in gold. I wanted to make the black layer gold also but didn't have enough gold left to do it. That was disappointing. 

The leaf embossing folder is from a cut and emboss set from Momenta. Sentiment is from Close to my Heart called  Beloved Bouquet. Added a little rhinestone next to the sentiment and also added a few little pieces of gold cardstock that had come off of the oval die when I cut it out. 

I'm happy with how it turned out and I know my Mom will love it. 


I recently had a birthday and thought I would share a picture of the card my sister Tonda made for me.




I thought It was so cute. Years ago I gave her little grand daughter a little Ty beanie baby Hippo. They named it Cinny. My great-niece Livi is a senior this year and still has Cinny the Hippo. My Sister said she thought that this little hippo card was perfect for me and purple and green are two of my favorite colors. 

So that's all I have for today. Hope you all can make it back. Stay Safe and Stay Crafty.

 

 Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day!!!

Valentine Treat Boxes

  Today Is Monday, this coming Sunday will be Valentines Day. I thought I would make a few treat boxes to put some candy and money in to give to my Grandkids. 

 


 


 


 

 I recently bought a retired Stampin Up stamp set on ebay and the seller also sent me that cute little Valentine kitty stamp. I thought it would be cute on my grand daughters box. Colored it with some alcohol markers. The Happy Valentines Day stamp is from CC Designs.

 Thought they turned out pretty cute and they were really easy to put together.

This is a quick post from me. Have a lot to do today. I will be sharing a Valentine card with you in a few days.  Hope you can come back. 

Have a great day my friends. Stay Safe and Stay Crafty!
