Happy Birthday Rebecca Blog Hop!

Before yesterday I had never been in a blog hop and now this is my second one in two days!! We are celebratingRebecca's birthday and sharing some creative cards with you. If you are hopping along in order you just came from Tricia blog at Mystical Card Creations.

I really wanted to create card that had a rainbow feel after the beautiful rainbow we had after the rain the other day. I wanted it to be happy and fun so I thought I would use butterflies. I really love how the card turned out!

Here it is:

I used the retired Stampin' Up! set Flower Fest for the butterfly and the background is En Francais. That one is still current. I punched out the butterflies with the retired butterfly punch but if you wanted to recreate this card you could easily use the new stamp set Papillon Potpourri and the coordinating punch.

It is time to keep hopping! Up next is Lisa over at Lisa's Creative Niche.

A Spoonful of Sugar's Blogiversary Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! It is my friend, Annette's, two year blogiversary and she has a great line-up of papercrafters in her Blogiversary Blog Hop. Won't you come and hop along with us? If you have been hopping along you just came from Melinda Gleissner's blog My Notworthy Cards, where she created a wonderful card to share. She is very talented!

I had no mojo when I sat down to create my card. I really didn't. I had a rough day that day and papercrafting wasn't helping as it usually does. I know this sounds crazy but do you ever see something you like and want to create something kind of like it and it just doesn't come out the way you envisioned? Yep, it was that kind of day! My first one didn't come out like I wanted so I ended up turning to this weeks Mojo Monday sketch to help me get a little of my crafting mojo back. I really like how the card turned out so I decided it would be the card I shared first. I will share the other one next week.

Here is my card:

I used the stamp set Up, Up, & Away from Stampin"up! and 4 of their new In Colors: Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, and Rasberry Ripple.

Here is the sketch:

It is time to keep hopping along! Enjoy Sarah Hamer's card that she created to share with youover at Pink Cricut.

If you had to stop in the middle of the hop and want to pick back up where you left off here is the complete lineup:

Thanks A Bunch (Mojo Monday 252 Challenge)


I did my card for the Mojo Monday 252 Challenge a few day ago but didn't ever get it posted. I am not sure where the week went. I went on a 4 day scrapbooking retreat in Amish Country (Holmes County- Berlin, Ohio) with Noreen at Scrap-n-Country. I made this card for her as a thank you for hosting another spectacular event for all of us scrapping ladies. I did not make any cards while I was there but I did get done 18 double page layouts! There was 24 hour scrapbooking and I think my latest night was 3:30am. The last time I went I made it past 5am but it took me a long time to recover so I had to force myself to go to bed a bit early:) LOL!

Here is my card:

This was my first ever round card! I have to say it was much more challenging than I thought it would be. I think it was because I had a hard time fitting in everything in the smaller small but I do like how it turned out.

Until next time,

Mojo Monday #252 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I am busy working on my card for the MojoMonday #252 Sketch Challenge. I am hoping to post it on Thursday so check back:)

Here is the sketch:

You can pick either round or square. The Stampin' Up! large scallop circle die has been on my wish list for a long time and it never made the cut. I kept seeing the round cards at the end of every month and would be upset with myself for not ordering it! Well, I FINALLY ordered it so can you guess which style card I am making?

Until next time,
