Coffee and a Card

It's Friday, and that means I'm up with my take on a color scheme challenge at 365 Cards.
I settled in with a cup of coffee and a yummy new Starbucks blend
Dontcha just adore those colors???? 
After a few sips, I got to work...
Here are the colors that DoBea selected
And here's my card for my new niece who was born 10 days ago.

I loved these colors and it was easy to create this card!
Here are the details:
Cardstock Papertrey Ink
Stickers SRM Stickers
Feltie Sticker Sassafras Lass
Tape K&Company
Here's a tidbit about the banner...

I used some quilting fabric I bought at Craft Wearhouse a few weeks ago.  I love crafting with quilting squares because the colors and patterns are already coordinated for me.  And for a card maker, a little bit goes a long way.  I chose some left over orange and white polka dotted fabric to cut out the triangles for the banner.  I sewed them onto some cardstock and roughed up the edges a bit.  It was super easy and looks cool.

Here's what I originally bought the fabric for

I was inspired by a friend of mine to create a fabric garland.  I cut some rectangular strips out of the fabric and tied them on to a long strip of jute.  I keep some hooks attached beneath the fireplace in my living room and change the decorations to fit the season/holiday.  For example, at Christmas I hang stockings. 

I hope you leave my blog a little inspired today and join me for the color challenge at 365 Cards...

Tag it

Boy, I've sure been busy this weekend! I made a card Friday, a tag Saturday and gave my blog a new look. Here's the tag I made for the 365 Cards challenge on Saturday called "Short and Sweet"
The goal was to add the shortest sentiment possible (that includes the number of characters).
I think I managed it pretty well, and this gave me a good excuse to make a tag -- I can always use those for gifts.
I have a couple more changes to make to the look of my blog, but I'm pretty happy with it so far :)

Spring Fever

Can it be???
Have I really not posted here since December?
Well, that doesn't mean I haven't been crafty...
I have been creating a bit for 365 Cards color scheme challenges and here are few recent cards I've created
A little something I whipped up for my Sister-in-Law

Just because I love it so much...

A Happy Mother's Day note to my dear mom

Complete with some glittery treasures that are meant just for her.

This is my spring fever rearing its head.  NO MORE RAIN PLEASE!!!!

And getting a jump on birthday cards for summer birthdays, this is for my sweet animal-loving youngest DD

If you were wondering whether I would ever post again, rest assured that there is more to come.  I am FINALLY fixing up my craft room and I want to share photos as I organize.
I'll be back...
