Oh Wishing Well …..

This week one of the RN’s I work with is retiring after over 35 years of service… Our department wanted to make a card and include something special for her (shhhhh! It’s a secret!).
I thought a wishing well would be the perfect thing to put on her card, as we were making a wish for her success in retirement!

Anniversary Card: to have and to hold

Hello to everyone. Card a Day Blog Fill-In here. Taking a moment to share an off topic card that pulls at the heart. Maybe I am a big "Mooshball" this morning. As my son calls me when I keep giving him hugs when he leaves for school on Mondays or when I just can't seem to wrap it up with the hubby and keep chattering as they are leaving. Yes this gets an eye roll from the 8 year old of my life.

An anniversary card created with one of my files by Heather in our forum. So wonderful! For more information you can visit. Here. 

Enjoy your day! -

Happy Mother's Day!

Good Morning Everyone!

So sorry for the late post this morning.  Our power and Internet went out yesterday and then we woke up to problems with the Internet again this morning!  Luckily it looks to be finally working again.

I chose a Mother's Day theme for my post today since Mother's Day is almost here.

I chose colors that were a little more "neutral" for my card this morning.  Not every mother loves bright, bright colors like I do!  For more details on my card, please stop by my blog, Love 2 Create, by clicking here.

What are you making for your mother (or grandmother, or mother-in-law, or sister, etc.) this year?  Link up your projects below and you may win this month's giveaway!

Thanks so much for stopping by - have a wonderfully crafty day!

Mom day - bluebird of happiness

This is a Mom's Day Card my son and I worked on together. It says inside. "Mom you are my blue bird of happiness." I love cuttlebug plates. And my son helped me pull this together. He's so fun to have in the studio with me.The goal for him was to find some way to use the Gelly Roll pens that are glitter that I have. He loves to use them. I have had them for years and am still surprised they haven't quit or gummed up. So he pondered this totally white card while I worked on something else and then said hey lets color the birds blue. And then sat and stared at my jars of embellishments. Easy to find something when they are sorted by color. He picked the pink bow that matched the ribbon I had already placed out to use.  Love the creative process. 
Thank you for stopping by!

Tomorrow stop by and see Christine Patton's post  for more inspiration!

Mother's Day - Relax

Darla here with a 2 one layer cards for you today (meaning this is all done on the card base with nothing other than the ribbon added).

I think I am going through a phase of no sentiment cards or something as I can honestly say I have not stamped a sentiment on a card front (with the exception of some designs I was doing of Michelle's from our joint card class) in well over a month.

I can't tell you which card is for who (mother, step-mother or mother-in-law) as they all read my blog and I want it to be a "little" bit of a surprise at least. ;) Here are 2 of the cards I made for them though:

Card 1:

Mother’s Day

This past weekend I was camping to celebrate my birthday. Had a wonderful time, but knew I had to do this card for the Card a Day Blog. I thought it would be a great opportunity to remind everyone that you can do a neat card with just a few items…. that and the fact I did not have a lot of room to pack lots of crafting stuff!
I made this card with a white piece of cardstock, approximately a 5 inch square piece of colored cardstock, silver felt pens, and some dimensional glue (colored) that I had, as well as a regular gel ink pen.  The phrase I wrote on the background was “the ribbons of your love encircle my heart”. It was an anonymous phrase I got off of  quotegarden.com… and only now I realize that I did the quote wrong! It was supposed to be “the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart”!  Oh well, the meaning to me is the same.
The tag was cut out of a piece of white cardstock (I used a box to help make the template), then decorated with silver markers, glue and regular pen… glued on top of the written card base - simple!
Enjoy, and remember to challenge yourself to do a card with less, not more!

Now that I'm back from camping, visit my blog at Gardens Crafts 'n' More to see what else I've been up too! I know I'm going to be posting another card in a week, and lots of garden pictures to inspire you!

Plan B

Oh my, I can’t believe we’re just about halfway through April already!!  We’re getting a jump on Mother’s Day cards this week and will be bringing you lots of inspiration.

This is Vicki from PAPER SQUIRREL and I'm kicking off our Mother's Day theme with this card that I made for my soon-to-be mother-in-law.  I’ve had these pieces and parts laying on my craft table for MONTHS…planned for a whole other project.  But I thought to myself:  obviously I’m not too captivated by said planned project, or I would have made it by now!  So I made this card instead....plan B.

I can't wait to see what Shelley Bordeleau has in store for us tomorrow!

#1 Teacher

I love our theme this week, 'Teacher Appreciation."  I'm sure we all have teachers who inspired us, and I think our teachers rarely get the recognition or thanks they deserve.  So, here's to you, all you teachers out there.  We Love You!!!


I'm sorry if this photo looks a little washed out; I didn't have the best lighting when I needed to snap it.  But you can go to my blog, Creative Genie-ous, to get a better view.

Lucy Kelleher is your designer for tomorrow.  I know she'll have some great inspiration for you!  And be sure to get started on your challenge entries.  You don't want to miss out on the chance to win a great prize!

Creating Smiles

My son is 4 and attends preschool once a week and for my Teacher Appreciation card I really wanted to make it about the real reason we appreciate them the most in our house and that is for the huge smile on Michael's face when we tell him it's preschool day and again when we pick him up. It's the enjoyment they put into everything they teach them that makes those smiles happen and for that we are very appreciative!
I also tried to make this personalized by colouring the picture as close to my son as possible.

For more details head on over to my blog Caution:Crafting is Contagious

The inside reads.. "Thank you for helping create them!"
