Hello friends....
Another post from me, Connie, this month!

Remember that blog hop project I couldn't get finished because my kiddo was in the hospital?
Well, brace yourselves...because here it is!!



I seriously love this!! It's hanging on my door!!
This kit came with everything but the ink. I added that myself! Oh and some pop dots!

Want to create one yourself? I have 2 of these kits left in stock. Just send me a message!!
You will be glad you did!

I can't thank you enough for checking out my blog today. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Relaxing Lady Bug- Kitty Bee DT

Pin It



Hello my crafty friends!
It's Connie here today to share a cute birthday card I created for my niece using one of Kitty Bee's digital images. The relaxing lady bug is so sweet- don't you think?



I added her on top of some lady bug paper and a red doily. Embellished the card with a resin ladybug I purchased while in Greece. The sentiment inside reads wishing a special young lady a special birthday!

You can find this and other great Digital Images in the Kitty Bee shop.

  Flower Box Card

Pin It Hi Everyone! It's Angela from Mermaids & Monograms. Today I want to share with you a card I made that goes along with Connie's challenge! Lets start with me never having done a box card before. I was always so over whelmed by them! My DT sister Kim is always making them, and making them look so easy! So I gave it a spin. I love them! And I love how my card came out! LOL



I used a file from Lori Whitlock that I bought from the silhouette store. All of my paper is scrap from my stash. The middles of the flowers (the purple flowers) are a fabric/foam flower that I have had for a long time.

I'm going to put this card in the gift basket we are giving to my sons teacher at the end of the school year (next week! Yikes!)
