Celebration Card Using Art by Miran Party Time Patti, Cricut Artbooking/Art Philosophy Cartridges

Hello friends in Blogland!  We are having summer weather here in Southern CA.  I haven't heard what other areas are having for weather right now.  I just hope it is nice for everyone. I am still in the creative mode.  Yeah!   

I have been trying to keep up with three progressive challenges each month; so here is the one using Art By Miran Party Time Patti.  Part One; use one of the Art By Miran digis/rubber stamps and you receive a free digi for Part Two.  It is a lot of fun; so I hope you join in for this one or the next one.  

If you have been following my blog; then you may already know that my daughter, Jenny and her youngest three children are flying back with us to CA in May; after our visit there. They will be staying with us for 8 days.  I can hardly wait.  I sent them an invitation, click here and a 60 day reminder card, click here (they will receive on March 29th).  This is the 30 day reminder card (they will receive April 28th) to keep things exciting for them.  I want to keep up their anticipation and keep them involved; because it is a long wait till May; especially for children.  I plan to create a "10 days left" card as well as a "Time To Pack" card.  This also helps me to stay focused and looking forward to the fun times we will have! Plus - the bonus for me of creating fun, lively, exciting cards for these grandchildren.

Birthday Card for Male Using CTMH Jackson Paper, Cricut Artiste and Aurora Wings Puppy In A Boot Digi

Hello friends.  I hope all of you are doing well.  I have started to feel better the past few days. I finally figured out that the bone broth I was eating; which is supposed to be healthy for you; was actually making me sicker.  Once I stopped that; I felt better.  I am finding out that things that are healthy for other people don't necessarily work for me.  I guess that is why we are supposed to listen to our own body and to our intuition; rather than to someone else.

I have been having fun creating cards the past few days.  I am excited to finally feel good enough to create this adorable card using Aurora Wings Puppy In a Boot.  I love this sweetie; and have been wanting to create with it for quite a while now.  I couldn't decide what to do with it; so I finally made it a Birthday card for a male.  I don't seem to have enough cards for boys; although it can still be used for a girl as well.  Check out the fabulous digis at Aurora Wings.  This one is not available in the shop; as it was a freebie in Sept. 2014, I think.  

I wanted to use my new CTMH Jackson paper; which is available April 1st; in the new Expressions 2 Idea Book.  There are two new ones; and I love both of them.  I loved this barn red and chocolate pattern on this paper; as well as the pretty banner paper with several colors in it.  I hope you enjoy this card.

Gorgeous Peacock Card Using Imagine That Digis By Kris - Pretty Peacocks

Progressive Challenge With "Imagine That Digis By Kris"

Hello friends.  You still have time to join the fabulous March progressive challenge with Imagine That Digis by Kris.  March is using her gorgeous "Pretty Peacocks" digi set.  It has several sentiments; giving you a wide variety to choose from.  I merged the sentiment with the Peacock; which made it easier for me to create what I wanted with it.  I love that you have an option to color the digi or use the gorgeous colored one created by Kris.  

If you use the digi set for the current month; purchasing this one for March; or using a free March one that Kris has available on her blog; then you will get the free set for April.  I started back again in Feb; so this is my second month.  I love Imagine That Digis by Kris. Kris is a very talented lady.  I am very spoiled though; because her digi sets come with black and white; plus colored ones as well.  I love to use the colored ones with her sentiments.  It makes creating a card quick and easy.  

I am entering this card in Path Of Positivity Challenge Serendipity.  When I started to create this card; I was looking at the sentiments and two popped out at me; so I knew it was for my daughter.  Her husband made several comments on Facebook in the past few days to his wife; which sounded like this card; so it just seemed like serendipity that it happened right before I chose the sentiments and printed them. I am going to have my son-in-law give it to her from him; because the comments are exactly what he was trying to tell her on Facebook. 

I have had a lot of serendipity moments in my life; and this is just one example; which happened to be about this card.  I think we have to be open to these moments; for us to see and recognize them.  They are indeed miracles of everyday life. It turned out a little different than I expected it to; but I think it is OK; just not my normal.  There are no pretty ladies or butterflies.  LOL!  


There are papers to match; which I forgot to use.  Sorry Kris.
