I just loved the digi that I decided to use on this cute little card, its from A Day for Daisies and called Baby Wings!! I made this for a special little girl that has a birthday next month that loves fairies. Hope you like it. You can find all the details about the card on my blog Scrappinwith’Z.

I hope you like my card for this month and I’ll see you next month!!

Make Your Own Background Paper

It’s my turn to give you some inspiration from the design team!

The background you see here is handmade. I love the bright colours, and the brightness of the card. It could be used for just about any occassion.

I vaguely remember doing this in the past, but it’s been awhile. A friend found a fabulous video on how to do this technique, and I’d like to share it with you.

Thanks for looking!

This months challenge was to create a birthday card. I started out with something simple, then decided to be more creative and “think outside the box”– Here’s what I came up with.

A Little Birdie Told Me…

Hi everyone!!! Spring is almost here!!! Days are getting longer and a little bit warmer which has got me in the mood to create something fun  and springy. πŸ™‚ I have a card I created for this month challenge which is something  birthday related.
I stared with cutting a card base using the Sizzix Card, Scallop #3 die from Moss Green Glitter Cardstock. Next I gathered up my card stock scraps, two stickers from the Robin’s Nest: Spring Sticker and White Dew Drop  to use on this adorable card. The little birdie is from the Little Spring Birdies college sheet from Altered Pages. I fussy cut one of the bird out and added a sequin, Crystal Stickles and a little party hat that I cut from my scraps. The birthday is sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up Simple Sayings II set. 

Isn’t the little birdie just festive???

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!

Happy Birthday to You!

Designer Beth ~ March Challenge “Birthday!”

Hi, Beth here from The Crafty Scrap Yard!
Today, I’m sharing with you our “challenge” for this month with Crafty Card Gallery design team. 

For this challenge we we’re asked to make a Birthday themed  card.

Here is my design:

My husband asked me to make this card for his mother who’s birthday is coming up soon as it’s on St. Patrick’s Day.  I added some green & blue dots for the balloon to help celebrate the day.
It was fun & easy to make.  Now to get it off in the mail!

More details about our card can be found on our blog at here.
