Happy Easter Monday!

Hope you all had a blessed Easter!  Here are some of my cards to celebrate:

 

1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead… (NIV)  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

 

 

It’s time to celebrate Spring!  Last week at this time, we had snow on the ground, but yesterday, (Hooray!) it was 75 degrees!   It is also time for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  There are lots of fun cards in the Bloghop to celebrate warm weather and sunshine, coffee, tea, and cocoa.   For my card today, I say  “Cheers to Spring!”

This fun little bunny is raising her coffee cup in a toast to Spring!   She is made from the Favor Bag Accessory – Bunny die from Mama Elephant.  The coffee cup is from Taylored Expressions, from a set called joe to-go.  The paper I used is from Doodlebug, spring things and cream & sugar.  I created the sentiment on my computer and used the My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Frames for the banner.  The little embellies are from Doodlebug also.  Happy Spring everyone, and be sure to check out the other wonderful cards in this fun Bloghop!  “Be Good!” Debbie

The paper I used is from Doodlebug, the Sugarplums collection. The cup and sentiments are from My Favorite Things (Hug in a Mug for the Stamps and Hot Cocoa cups for the die.)  The cookies are an old Quikkutz die, and the plate is from My Favorite Things also.  (Zig Zag oval)  The little tag is from  the Mama Elephant Mini Messages set.  The candy cane is a little chenille pipe cleaner I had in my stash.  Thanks for checking in with me today,  my Christmas Card preview will continue on Sunday.    Wishing you all the blessings of Christmas!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Valentine’s Day Card – Mama Elephant Panda Bear

IMG_4339  Here is another quick and simple card  that is soo cute!  The stamp is from Mama Elephant and is called Pandamonium.  I used Memento ink, black and ladybug to stamp the bear and hearts.  The background paper is from Bo Bunny, and I used Mama Elephant’s Femme Frames to cut out the rectangle and background paper.  I love panda bears, and love this sentiment for Valentine’s Day or any day.  Hope you have a good day!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

 

Valentine Card #5 – with Graphic 45

IMG_7508  I love this Valentine today, because it is so old-fashioned!  I used paper from Graphic 45’s Sweet Sentiment Collection.  This is beautiful paper for Valentine’s Day and Easter.  I cut this trading card from the paper, and the background paper is another sheet from the collection cut with Femme Frames by Mama Elephant.  I added a doily, and vintage lace that I found at a garage sale to make a bow.  The little heart pin is from Maya Road.  Have a wonderful day!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Mother’s Day Pansy

My Mom passed away 4 years ago, and it was before I started making cards.  If she were here now, this is the one I would make for her, as she loved pansies!  The paper is from Recollections, and  the pansy die from Leanne Creatif.  The die is so easy to use and makes such pretty and realistic flowers!  The banner is from Mama Elephant and the sentiment from Taylored Expressions!  I added a few pearls in the center of the pansy and at the edge of the banner and placed the pansy on a doily.   Mom, I love you and miss you so much, this card is for you!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

UCF Birthday

IMG_4711

I have twin nieces that have birthdays soon.  One is a Freshman at the University of Central Florida, so I decided to make her a card that has her school colors, mascot, etc. I used a color block cutting plate die from Taylored Expressions for the outline. UCF’s  mascot is a knight, and colors black and gold.  I used licensed paper for the UCF symbol.  The ballon die is from Joy crafts, I popped the black balloons and added a little twine.  The be happy sentiment is from My Favorite Things, and the word balloon from Paper Smooches. The hooray is from Lifestyle Crafts  and I used Mama Elephant confetti die for the stars.  The birthday sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  I think she will like it  “Be Good!”  Debbie
