A Little Bit of Lovin’

Monday Larry and I celebrated my 29th Wedding Anniversary. (I know I can’t believe it either. How did that happen? Since I’m only 29, I must have been a child bride LOL!!) And so I thought I’d share some great love themed swaps that I’ve received.

This first one is from Irene and I love the way she used the Number of Years Bundle (140811) with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die (140621).

While this card is for that special Silver Anniversary, I think the layout is perfect for any year. Just change up the colors and you’re sure to make an impression!

This second card I made in a shoe box swap and it uses the You’re So Sweet stamp set (138682/139440).

And this card from the Shoe box swap uses the Everything Eleanor (131987/124164) and Butterfly Basics sets (138813/138816/137154). I think it would make a lovely wedding or bridal shower card. How about you?

And finally another Anniversary card that was given to me by Donna. I love the way she used the Bird Builder Punch (117191) and Woodgrain Embossing Folder (127821) to create the look of wood the bird is peaking out of.

The cute little flowers are from the Tree Builder Punch (138295).

Need a quick and easy Easter card for Sunday? I’ve got three great cards for you to try.

This card uses the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper (129310), along with our Tea Lace Paper Doilies and the Strawberry Slush 3/8″ Stretch Ruffle Trim (130023).

How about some punch art? My friend Teresa made this card using the Woodgrain Background Stamp (128763/127808) and punches. I thought it was adorable and so easy to make.

Punch Art Easter Bunny

And this last card is one I made using the Lattice Die (115958). I’ve used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (118309) for the flowers and added a few tiny pearls.

Halloween Punch Art

Yesterday I saw the first yellow leaves fluttering by my window – the first sign of fall being right around the corner. For some reason that just hasn’t registered with me yet – I know the calendar says it’s Labor Day weekend, but with all the rain and cool weather we’ve had this summer it just doesn’t feel like it to me.

Did you know that there are only 62 days left until Halloween? There are no costumes that I have to sew or parties to plan since our children are older but I still enjoy sending cards and making up some goodies to hand out. So today I wanted to share with you this fancy fold Halloween Punch Art card. I love the clean and simple silhouette images of this card.

Polka Dot Parade Birds

Do you love birds? Do you enjoy watching them? I love it in spring when all of the different birds come to my feeder on their trip north. I especially love to see the flocks of robins looking for worms as they come through. I’m not sure why but I don’t see a lot of them during the year in North Georgia. So their migrating for me they always signal spring has arrived.

Want to make some of your own little Polka Dot Parade of birds that can hang around? Well why not make these cute little Bird Builder Punch clothes pins?

Polka Dot Parade Bird Clothes Pins

They are so simple to make. Just cover the clothes pin, decorate and add a magnet to the back. Voila! You’ve got a cute way to hang notes on your frig or anywhere else you need a reminder.

My friend Cindy gave me this cute little set for my birthday last month. They came in this adorable bag made out of our Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper. How cute is that!
