This week we have some fun cards we hope you will enjoy. Here is the sketch we used:
This is my card with the fun image Karen used last week. It’s from Whipper Snapper Designs and it just makes me smile. How about you? If I were to make this card again I think I’d emboss the So Saffron* and the Wisteria Wonder* pieces. I’m blaming the absence of textures to the early hour I must create my cards so I may work along with my other “sisters”. They live in a later time zone. How does that sound? Believable I hope!
* Stampin Up
Karen’s card is so sweet. She made it for her sweet granddaughter who recently turned 16. The papers were scrapbox found with just a bit of glittery pink sparkle. Love the combination of pattern don’t you?
April is birthday central for our families and Robyn too has a birthday card. Her sweet image is from Just Rite Papercraft‘s Doodled Birds. They are so fun! Once again this week she has combined colors & patterns that knock her card out of the park!
That’s a wrap for this week. We hope we’ve inspired you to create something fun! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check the Mojo Monday site for more great ideas.
Until next time, we are—

This will be a short post because there is just a bit of time before the challenges for this week close. We tried to follow the color challenge for Global Design and the design sketch for Mojo Monday. First up is Karen’s card.
The sweet images and sentiment are from Whipper Snapper stamps and are loads of fun. Great whimsy! The outside is cheerful and bright too. A great Springtime card.
This is Robyn’s card with lots of bright color and fun pattern. I love how she combines the different designs. Papers are from Stampin’ Up.
Here are the sketches we followed:
I will try to be more prompt next week with our blog and have everyone’s card here for you. See you soon!

We have just a bit of whimsy for you this week with our collection of cards. As Easter just around the corner and Spring in full swing, we created cards with fun Springtime characters. Not a planned thing, but with all the options out there it’s not hard to find cute images. Here is Karen’s card:
Her sweet chick in a fun disguise is from Stampingbella’s Cool Chicks collection. Very fun and cleverly colored with watercolor pencils (which she recently received from one of her “sisters”). If you haven’t tried watercolor pencils, you should. They are fun, easy to use, and an easy clean up.
This is Robyn’s creation with her cute peeking bunny. This rabbit is from Stampin’ Up’s current Paper Pumpkin as is the tiny sentiment and clip.
This is my card with some silly chicks getting ready for Spring. They are also from Stampingbella. I too used colored pencils and continue to work on my technique. I struggle with the blending. Here is the sketch we used:
We hope we’ve brought some smiles your way and maybe a little inspiration. Please leave a comment if you see something you liked and check out more ideas at the Mojo Monday site.

I tried to get our post out earlier this week, but it seems the weeks just fly by lately. Does this seem to be happening to any one else? We have some fun cards this week that I hope you enjoy. Here we go with Robyn’s card:
This is so fresh and bright just right for the first week of Spring. Some fun swirls from Tim Holtz for Sizzix are the center of attention on her card this week. Pretty floral papers from Pocket Blossoms from a DCWV pad accompanied by a few sweet sequins create a fun card. The birthday sentiment is retired Sassy Salutations from Stampin Up.
My card has a touch of Spring to it too. Most of my materials are from Stampin’ Up and include cardstock of Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach, one of their sweet doilies and a few delicate pearls. I tried some tone-on-tone stamping with my Peekaboo Peach layer and like the results. The stamp I used was a sprig from their Blooms & Wishes collection. The sentiment is an old stamp from a local craft store.
Here is Karen’s card all fresh and fun. She used Pebbles’s Budding Romance printed paper for some Springtime interest and complemented it with Stampin’ Up’s Blushing Bride cardstock. A 3D flower from SU’s Botanical Gardens and a simple sentiment stamped on a Word Window punch out from SU rounds out the look nicely.
And there you have it for this week. Three cards ready for Spring. This was the sketch we followed and encourage you to visit the Mojo Monday site for more inspiration. We hope you enjoyed your visit and will come back again!

A quick post this week with our cards for this week’s challenge over at Mojo Monday. The week seems to have gotten away from me and so this will be short beginning with Robyn’s sweet and fresh creation.
Her materials were from retired products, but her combinations are soft and cheerful. It reminds me that Spring is not too far away. I love the tulips (my favorite flower) so of course this card is a hit for me.
Here is Karen’s card pretty in plaid from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid collection. A bit of embossing from an old Sizzix embossing folder, and a few scalloped circles completes the look. Another fun springtime look!
Finally here is my card ready for a good friend’s birthday. These papers were sent as a thank-you addition to an order I recently received so I’m not aware what collection they’re from, but I do know the sentiment is from Ally Ways & the doily is a Stampin’Up embelishment as is the tiny cupcake.
Thanks for visiting. We hope you’ve found some inspiration and will consider following us.

Here are a couple of cards Karen and Robyn created for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge. There are some clever ideas here and we hope you find some inspiration for creating your cards. Robyn’s card is a collection of scraps and leftovers from a variety of Paper Pumpkins from Stampin’ Up. Isn’t it amazing how far scraps can go?
Karen’s card has a bit of whimsy and a feel of Spring to it. From the cute printed background of carrots and tomatoes to the variety of embossing there is a lot of Spring going on here too. Her paper is from American Craft’s Heartland Farm, and the delightful carrot embelishment is from Hobby Lobby. Very cute!
Here is the sketch they followed for this week’s challenge:
Thanks for stopping by and do check out all the other great ideas at the Mojo Monday site.
