Happy Birthday Flower!

Well  I'm definitely getting a bit quicker at making cards! I thought this was a basic card that could go for anyone, any gender or any age! I am still trying to get a system down for crisp stamping but I'm getting there! LOL. Well This card as with many of mine are a mish mash of products I have.
There is some Bazil paper, Recollections and a 3D butterfly from Jolee's set I bought 3 years ago!
I used the "Freshly Picked" cartridge for this card.
I like the simplicity of this card and well it's just fun! I hope you all enjoy!
Of course we all know that no matter what age we are it is perfection! Till the next year that is!
This card is for the ever so wonderful blog challenge

Hugs, kisses and happy wishes!

April Showers!

Kick your heals spring has sprung, April showers are here!!
I just love this time of year, rain and all. It is amazing how something so many dread, rain, is responsable for what so many people love flowers, trees, fresh fruit and vegies!  Each season has it's beauty however spring is defenitly the most colorful and tasty! On to the challenges. has a challenge using and umbrella.
I used so many different products.
The card is from Target (found a huge pack of card on clerance plain white with envelopes)
The solid papers are recollections. Except the green which is bazil.
The cloud came in a pack from Big Lots I forgot the brand though.
The grass print is from a DCWV pack with some really cool natural prints.
The stamp is Hampton Art.
I colored the stamp with Martha stewart glitter markers.
I inked the sides of the stamp frame and card edge with cats eye ink.
The Boots and the Umbrella were cut from the Pasley Cartridge.
P.S. My craftroom is getting better by the minute! Pictures really soon to come!

OK So, I have come to realize that I am not going to give myself a must do for a certain number of posts. I will be posting more often than I have been though. I have been putting quite a few hours into my craft room organization. It was really disorganized and I realized it was taking me over 2 hours to put together a card  because I couldn't fine anything I needed (not cool). So several trips to Michaels and Target and it is almost "ALIVE"! I'll post those pictures soon too. This card only took me 10 minutes to get it all put together. muuuch better:) Thanks again for all of those who are still keepin up with me:)

P.S. I originally intended this card for a cool challenge for those who like to participate in challenges. I happened to miss the deadline (by a few hours grrrr). Hope you all enjoy.

I used Recollections A2 card.
Cricut Country Life Cartridge
My paper is a collaboration of many different pieces of scrap (love that) sorry I am not sure of the brands.
Stickles Cinnamon on the weather vane at the top of the silo.
