Happy Wednesday! Here are some cute baby cards I created recently...
I had some cute little elephant stickers (by Hallmark--picked them up at Target:)) and knew they'd be perfect for some baby cards.
I used some Close to My Heart paper that I recently won as a prize and created a "boy" and "girl" version....
Whatcha think? Pretty cute, huh?
That's it for my card inspiration this week, but that's not all the cards I've made, so check back next week and I'll try to find time to take photos of some more fun cards I created. I love sharing with you!
As promised, here are a few more cards that I want to share with you:
This one was also inspired by the talented Danille Flanders. I'm always struggling to come up with wedding cards, but when I saw a lovely card she made, I wanted to recreate it (a bit differently, but still with the same feel)--I love the vellum stars (I don't often use vellum, but I LOVE the look of it!)
This one is all me (my style, plus my own idea)...bright & simple. I found some cute packaging embellishments at my fave store ever-TARGET :), and knew they would be perfect to make some cute cards.
Cara here to say welcome you to our (woot-woot!!) 2nd Birthday Celebration!! You should have come over from Nicole's blog.
I love celebrations...and I especially love birthdays! Hmmm...maybe it's because I love presents and cake...who doesn't? Even though we can't all sit down and have some cake together, we still have an awesome party planned....we have five fun, easy challenges you can enter this weekend to win some amazing PRESENTS (I mean prizes)!!
We'll also be celebrating over at ourFacebook Chit-Chat Pagewhere you can join in the fun and games and possibly even get another present/prize! They'll be tons of fun stuff going on there...you won't want to miss it!
I have THREE projects to share with you...
The first is a Birthday Card. I love making cards, and I figured it wouldn't quite be a birthday celebration if I didn't make a birthday card. I decided to raid my stash of ribbon scraps for this one and used a cute Pebbles flower along with some MME enamel dots.
Next up is a layout I created from a few photos of my daughter Ellie's 6th Birthday that I had yet to scrap.
I love bright, fun colors and birthdays are the perfect opportunity to use those colors. I again went to my stash of scraps--this time my "patterned paper" and used some strips and some small pieces (to punch out my arrows--I actually used my photos corner stamp from Stampin' Up). I also added some sequins that I've had in my stash for a looooong time and never used...decided this would be the time...because I wanted the look of confetti. And I finished it off with some circle embellishments from Pebbles. So fun!!!
Lastly, because I was talking about the "arrows", I'll share a super easy and more masculine birthday card (told ya I love to make cards!)...
I really like how simple this one is...and really fast to put together!
*As a side note, if you're a card lover like me, check back on my blog next week (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) as I'll be sharing lots of card-making inspiration!
And now...because I not only love getting presents (yes I do confess I LOVE it!), I also love giving them too ...I have a present/prize for one lucky winner. To be part of my prize drawing, just leave me a comment about the best birthday present you've ever received. And if you're not one of my blog followers...become one and leave me an additional comment stating you did and I'll give you an extra entry! I will announce my winner on Wednesday, July 17th.
Here's the "blog candy"....:)
...to celebrate my love of stamps, washi tape and baker's twine (not to mention bright colors):

1 roll of hot pink baker's twine (from American Crafts)
1 roll of orange baker's twine (from American Crafts)
1 roll of green baker's twine (from American Crafts)
Don't forget that over at the SEM blog we're also giving away a fabulous GRAND PRIZE from...
Over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracle's blog, I was in charge of the Main Challenge this month. I decided that it would be fun to do one about "Favorite Things". My subject (as it almost always is:)) is my daughter Ellie. The scrap twist was to use at least one office supply item--I used staples and a paper clip.
Here's my take on it:
I had fun "interviewing" Ellie about her MOST favorite things (she could have given me a much longer list, but I made her stop:)). Then I had fun finding some online printables of some of her favorites--Ruby Gloom, a cute Pokemon bird, and a Littlest Pet Shop dog. I printed them out to the right size, colored them and fussy cut them and used them as some extra cute little embellishments. Fun, right?
I love this sweet page all about my sweet girl's favorites...I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge!
