with you that is highlighting
I just had to use two sentiments on this
card because they
went very well together.

and the enamel dots (these are so cool). Check this
fun store out they have so many cool brads, eyelets

Your Loving Spirit Helped Me...

Happy Days are here again...
where has the week gone?
On a good note for me it is
The Project Bin Monday and time to share a
brand new creation with you.

Today, the two stamps sets being highlighted are
Clear stamps with matching dies, card making, paper crafts, rubber stamping, die cutting Card making, mother's day, deer, paper crafts, stamping
The heart die was used for this card from the In My Heart Set
and the sentiment
was used from the Deer Mom set which is new.

The sentiment I felt could be used for mother's day
but honestly for anyone man or woman whose spirit
has helped you find your own.

My daubers found their way onto my ink pad (Early Espresso)
to add some distressing to the edges of my papers. 
Stampin' Up papers/ribbon/pearls were also used.
Spellbinders cut out the wonderful sentiment.
My pattern paper is unknown

A Balanced Diet...

Welcome to my blog this Monday morning!
It is my post day for The Project Bin
and today the set being highlighted is
I don't know about you but cupcakes are so awesome
and it is sure hard to stop at one.
Loving the idea of having a balanced diet with 
one in each hand.

The card above was made using Stampin' Up paper and
Little Darlings pattern paper. To add some texture a dauber
was used with Early Espresso ink to distress on the edges.
Also the texture on the pink is from a embossing folder
called from Cuttlebug. Gems and ribbon finish it off.
I believe the layout is from an old Mojo Monday sketch
but couldn't find it again on pinterest to share with you.

Hop on by The Project Bin Blog to see more inspiration
each week day.

Wishing you an amazing day!

Why Fit In....

Happy Monday morning!

Today, it is my pleasure to share this
stamp set called 
Card making, paper crafts, rubber stamps, clear stamps, autism awareness
On April 2 it was Austim awareness day
This stamp set is so perfect with the sentiments
and the puzzle pieced heart.
When making this card, I decided to cut out a piece
and pop it up to show that sometimes
their are special pieces in life that stand out 
and that is just okay, that with Austim no matter how
wide the spectrum those pieces still fit together with us
but that they also can stand out.

Denise has designed a stellar set and named it
after her son Spencer, to celebrate him.
The sentiments are so perfect and can be used 
in many different ways.

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss was a wise man with this statement and so ahead of his
time. Their are just people and things in life
that make each and everyday extra special.
They stand out, which is okay and they are perfect just
the way they are. Acceptance and awareness
is the key.
Thank you Denise for making such an amazing set.

Please check out The Project Bin Blog
for more inspiration.

Thank you for sharing my latest card with me.

a little pop, thanks to the advice of a friend.

Happy Easter

Good morning! 
What a wonderful weekend we had.
We sure were blessed while walking in a park
this weekend with a friend to enjoy nature
and see an amazing sign of spring.
Lots of geese where swimming in the cold river
and they were even standing on the snow and ice still.
Love this sign of spring.

Today, is my day to post a card for The Project Bin
The stamp set used is
Clear stamps, springtime, card making, paper craft, stamping, Easter, tulips
I chose to use the cross as it is just about Easter
It is so much fun that their are three stamp sets that you can color.
On the cross, I used Copic Markers
and added only a bit of color to high light it.
It was a blast to get inky with the vellum from Stampin' Up.
Spray adhesive is what I will be looking for to stick it down next time.
To add color to it, I covered the panels with ink and then whipped off
the excess.
My work in progress is to find a way to take a good picture
with lighting in my new craft area which is dark corner.
Would love to get to the real color as possible for you.

My card layout is from
Two-for-One Saturday: Mojo Monday and Freshly Made Sketches รข€“ STAMP WITH BRIAN
A clean and simple design using just pattern vellum paper and Concord grape paper
with pearls.
Please hop over to The Project Bin blog to see even more 
inspiration from my team mate Kelly
and the rest of our team each day of the week.

Have an amazing day
may it be one filled with tons of little blessings.

Thank you so much for joining me today
