I love CAS cards!! 
(Clean and Simple)

Not only are they quick to make, when you need a card right away, it's a nice change from some of my cards that tend to get a little cluttered.....  :)

This is what  came up with....

I was having so much fun with this stamp, I made a few more......

The image is from Stampin Up's Avant Garden. The sentiment is from Better Together.

I hope you have enjoyed my creations.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Hug your pets...

 Hello!!  And thanks for stopping by to check out my card for this week's challenge.....
As I have mentioned several times, sketch challenges are my fave!!  And this is a great one.....so I kinda went a little crazy.....er.....  lol

I am inspired by the grass turning green finally, and by my mom's tulips and daffodils finally peeking through the ground, that I went floral, and used some fun colors.

I gave my sister some shelves over the weekend, and when rearranging some of the supplies I had on the shelves, I found this set of Hero Arts stamps that I have had for years and years.... The flowers are from that set. The sentiment is from Stampabilities. And the leaves are from SU's Avant-Garden sale-a-bration set.

The colors used are Pear Pizzazz, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Chocolate Chip.

Hope you have enjoyed my creations.
Make it a great week,
and, hug your pets!

Hello there!! And thanks for stopping by to check out my contribution to this month's hop.

First of all, I can't believe how late I am in making and posting my project.  I just wasn't happy with my first attempt, so I redid everything about an hour ago.....so here I am typing away when I should be sleeping.  lol
This has sadly been happening a lot lately. My crafty mojo is in a funk, I think.  Does this ever happen to you?? Do you just wait it out?  I hope it goes away soon, as I have two huge orders to fill. One due in a week!!  Yikes!!!

Enough of my troubles....  :)  Let's move on to what I have created for you.....

I purchased some flower seeds a while back, and I have this adorable sentiment that I break out every spring.  I thought it would be perfect to create a little gift bag for the seed packets.  I wanted to be able to see the seed packet through the bag, so I made the packet with my mini treat bag die using some vellum.

The sentiment is from Great Impressions, the flowers are from the SU Petite Petals set, cut with the coordinating punch. The leaves are cut with the Bird Punch.

The card base is Tip Top Taupe, the dsp is a piece from my stash, and I am not sure where it is from. The umbrellas are cut from another piece of dsp.

Next up on the hop is Lori.  I am sure she has something wonderful to share as you hop along.

Make it a great day.
Hug your pets!!!

Even though the view out my window is not exactly "springlike", the tic tac toe for this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge is very "springlike".......

I took a stroll down the right side of the board, using a lace trim, some yellow, and a bird.

I kinda feel like I was channeling my inner Andrea with this card. She has been on vacation all week, and I must have missed her......  lol

Hope you enjoy my creation.  It was nice to 'think spring' even though it is sleeting outside and trying to snow.  :(  Gotta love spring in Wisconsin!!

Have a great week!!
Hug your pets.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card for this week's challenge.

I have to admit, I started this post with a totally different card, but just wasn't loving it, so I started over!!  Does that ever happen to you??

So............. Here is my second attempt.....

I dusted off a few "oldies but goodies" to do this one!!  I purchased the retired Lattice die months ago, but must admit this is the first time I have used it!!  :)  And I also pulled out my retired Lotus Blossom set, which is still one I love.

The color is Melon Mambo..... with a touch of Old Olive for the stems.

The lattice is attached with Tombow glue, the stamped image (cut out with my stitched die) is attached with dimensionals.

Hope you can find some time to add a card to our challenge this week.  Who doesn't love flowers?!?!?!

Thanks again for stopping by.
Make it a great day!!

Hug your pets,
