Holiday at HIMCR

This week's challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room is any holiday. I made a super quick card with a Sizzix stamp and die set by Stephanie Barnard. I haven't had much time to craft lately but this went together really quickly. It's really basic but turned out pretty cute.

The paper is all Recollections. I used a Zig real brush marker for the feet and beak of the penguin, the rest is just ink. The snowflakes were a gift and I decided to throw a few of those on for a little sparkle.

Quick Fusion card

Hello everybody. I was in need of a few minutes of craft time today so there will be a couple of posts. This is the first of two posts. The only thing I used for this challenge was my paper cutter, a stamp from Unity Stamps, and some sequins. This card is for the Fusion Card Challenge. Here's the challenge.

I stuck mostly to the sketch but incorporated the flower idea with the paper. I think the patterned paper is Basic Grey but don't hold me to that. The yellow is Recollections. 

This was a super quick card but I like how it turned out. Have a great day!

It's Spring at FCCB

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #299-Spring
Make a project about Spring.

The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project:

I found a cute picture on Pinterest and used it as inspiration to create my card. The boots and flowers are from the April Showers and Bloom Cricut image sets. The solid paper is all Recollections and the plaid is an old piece of Martha Stewart paper from my stash. (The gold flowers look a little brown in the picture but they aren't in person.)
