Let's Celebrate!

Such a busy time of year with Easter, graduations, birthdays, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, and all kinds of celebrations!  I hope you are enjoying this season- I'm still not convinced it is spring yet- and not getting stressed out over all the gifting and cooking to be done.  I have a brand new Big Shot and a lot of new stamps, dies, and punches so I have been busy in the Rubber Room creating.  Here are a couple of cards I made today while hubby was out getting groceries for our delicious Easter dinner:

Celebration Penguin was a freebie from 2 Cute Ink.  This is one of my entries in their Celebration Challenge.

Another entry in 2 Cute Ink's Celebration Challenge.
I think these turned out very cute!  Both cards use cute patterned paper from Papermania by Docraft and textured pink card stock.  I also used SU's Itty Bitty Banners stamp set- both French and English and cut them with the Bitty Banners dies.  The flowers are stamped with SU's Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamps then punch with the corresponding punches.  Leaves are punched with SU's Bird punch and for the butterflies I used the Beautiful Wings Sizzlet.   Pop dots, pearls, and googly eyes finish them up.

I Love Snowmen

Had enough snow this year?  It was insanely bitter cold last week in Michigan and I didn't leave the house for a week.  It felt good to slow down for a while but now I am ready for less shoveling and longer days!

Red Rubber Designs is hosting a Winter Stamp challenge so break out those winter stamps and start crafting!

For this card I used:
Sizzix Christmas Set #3
Cuttlebug Snowflake die
Pallet ink- Black Noir and Seascape
Your Next Stamp Mini Snowman Stamp and Die Combo
Sentiment from The Angel Company:  "I Love Snowmen"
Ribbon from Dollar General
Pop dots for snowflake and sentiment

Your Next Stamp is also hosting a Friday Fun Challenge in which you use a card sketch to design your card.

This card is entered in both challenges:
