Be Your Own Kind .....

I have a quick post to share today. I made a birthday card for my fitness trainer using the You Got This stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas. I made the bunny into a girl bunny using pink and black paper pieced clothing.

 I would have put a sweat band on bunny, but my trainer doesn't wear one.
 I used a piece of foil from a can of my husbands potato sticks for the mirror like background. LOL, yep, I love to recycle. But, it has the best thickness and texture. I fussy cut my embossed sentiment and popped it up. Pretty simple but I needed something special and personalized. By the way, she loved the card. 

I am entering this in The Cat's Pajamas challenge at

Two more Graphic 45 cards

Wow, so I just couldn't stop, once I got started making cards from the August Cut Aparts paper. So to keep things short, here are two more cards I created.
Quite simple, but lovely enough to send to my friends.

My first CAS- Graphic 45 card

Ok, so the Graphic 45 bug hit me today. As I was browsing my local stamp/paper store ,The Checkered Cottage today, I came across the pattern directions to make this darling card. Sure, I could have gone home and cut the paper apart and then sat there and wondered " now what do I want to do with all these pieces?" Well, I came home with my Graphic 45 August paper and the pattern and got to work.

Here is just a sneak peek at the pattern. 
Here is my copy of the card. I used PTI Simple Sunflower for my flower embellishment. 
And the inside is my creation.
This was so easy and fun. Now I have extra bits and pieces to make a few more cards. These next ones, I will just wing it. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Home....yep, there's no place like home...

I made a card for The Cat's Pajamas TCPTUES293 challenge. I don't have very many TCP sets, so I came up with a darling card from my newest collection. I used Take Flight stamp set and Birdhouses die set. I pulled a piece of paper from American Crafts- Amy Tangerine- Yes Please. I love using paper that has images in the corner. I do apologize for the picture. I got a new phone and didn't set up dropbox yet and now I am scrambling to get this posted.
