April Shower Umbrellas at BBTB2

The theme this week at BBTB2 is April Shower Umbrellas. Our DT sister, Caroline, charged with making a project with an umbrella in it.

I used several basic shapes for this card plus images from Crocs Rule and Disney Pooh and Friends. The paper is a mix of stash paper, everything from Bazzill to Webster's Pages. I'm really working on using the stuff I have instead of buying new. 

Come have some fun, and remember to bring your umbrella!

I used this adorable birdhouse file from for by my project today. I added the "Happy Mother's Day" from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2, and changed the bird to this cutie from Nate's ABC's. I cut it up a bit so I just had the bird.

Birds at BBTB2

This week Caroline is our hostess at BBTB2. Our DT sister, Brenda, had chosen the theme of spring birds for the week so we are going with it. 

My card has images from several image sets, as usual. The bird is from Cherry Limeade, the "just a note" is from Wild Card, and the note itself is from the Hannah Montana set. All of the paper,except the blue background, is scraps, yay! I'm really trying to use them up. 

If you haven't been to the BBTB2 blog head over, there are some really great creations this week!

National Barbershop Quartet Day - We're celebrating it at BBTB2!

Susan is our hostess this week at BBTB2 and we are celebrating National Barbershop Quartet Day by creating something musical.

I used the Quarter Note image set, it's one of my favorites. I used my go-to Recollections card stock for the solids and a scrap from Webster's pages is the red piece in the background. I added a few sequins to some of the dots on the embossing on the background.

Join us for some musical fun this week!

Tuesday Morning Sketches entry

I find that I really enjoy using sketches when I make cards and Tuesday Morning Sketches has some great ones.

I haven't had much time for challenges lately so this card is very simple, but it was fun to do. This is a combination of Recollections and stash card stock. The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts. The image is from A Day for Daisies. The washi tape is something I picked up at Tuesday Morning (possibly Tim Holtz).

Color throwdown challenge

The colors for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week are yellow, orange, red and light aqua/mint. 

I used a stamp from Unity Stamps called the Big Summertime Bouquet. I embossed it using Versamark ink and some detail embossing powder from Recollections on some watercolor paper. It was colored with Zig real brush markers. They are a lot of fun to use! The circle and the wavy card are made with the Bunch of Fun Circles dies from Emma at My Creative Time.

Tiny winged things at BBTB2

Welcome! This week our hostess at BBTB2, Michelle, has chosen the theme "tiny winged things". We were to use a butterfly or a bee on our projects. I chose this great butterfly background from the Paper Lace image set and Bambi from Disney Classics. It may need a few sequins before I give it away.

Create your own winged project and come join in the fun!
