Bluebird Card

Here's a little blue bird made from a Little Scraps of Heaven file.  I think he is so cute.  I'm working on a birthday poster for my mom right now with him also only much bigger!  LOL.  LSHD was having a challenge to use 3 patterned papers and 4 flowers.  The 4 flowers bugs me a little...I normally use embellishments in 3's so I'm still not sure how I feel about this card.  Is it me?  I guess the way it is it is "balanced" and that is a good thing.  Hmmm....anyway, I am also entering it into these challenges.  Love it when I can combine.   Sometime's it's fun to see how many I can combine! LOL.

Christmas Mouse Page

I had a couple of cute little mice left over from some other Christmas pages and so I decided to add then to some family pictures and create a simple layout.  This was the last Christmas that we had my Grandma.  So glad that I had taken my camera!  My family teases me that I always take a lot of pictures, but I don't regret one of them!  Especially since when my Dad and Grandma passed, I was the one with the pictures.  Scrapbooking is a way for me to savor those memories and preserve those pictures.  I don't regret them.  Oh and this little mouse came from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  Cute huh!

Candy Boquette

My daughter is having a special birthday this year and I wanted to do some different fun things for her.  I saw these "pop" bouquets last year but had no occasion for them.  This year I decided this would be a fun and cute item to make for her and have it delivered to her at school.  After I completed the bouquet, I had found a post where she had made these cute bows out of newspaper.  Well, I thought that it would be cute out of some of the leftover paper I had from other projects for my daughter's birthday so... this cute bow became the topper to my bouquet.  I think it adds a nice touch!  She's going to love it!

Lion Love Step Card

Here's another step card.  Cute cute!  These little lion's are from Miss Kate's Cuttables and the face stamps are Treasure Box Designs stamps.  So cute on him!  Love it!

Kids Valentine's Day Cards

My kids are old enough that they don't really like the cutesy type stuff that I like so I was looking for a different style of card this year.  I came across this template from My Scrap Chick and decided it would work nicely.  My son loves green and my daughter loves Tiffany box blue so here are the cards that I came up with.  I really like how they turned out so I made several more to use as birthday cards because they didn't look so feminine or cutesy either.  I think they will be a win win!

Here's what the birthday ones look like.  I just stamped birthday on them.  Unfortunately my Happy Valentine's Day stamp won't fit on the ribbon so it will go on the inside of the other cards.  Oh well.  Either way, I think they make a nice Valentine's or Birthday Card.
