Create Along With Us: May 2017



I hoard strips of cardstock....
 

(stamp: Papertrey Ink Movers & Shakers Sentiments  die:Papertrey Ink Winter Woods)



So when I saw Wanda's creation for Papertrey's newest release...





 I was inspired~from the sectioned sentiment down to the colorful dots.


I washi-blocked a sentiment from Movers & Shakers and stamped each phrase on a delicious strip.




Hope your day is floating along smoothly friends~

Faith Card




I assembled a card with bright cutouts that were laying on my desk.

Mom's Colorful Card




I got mom's Mother's Day card done, because she lives quite a ways away and I need to mail her box.

The Mother's Day stamp set I bought months ago had wandered off, but I found it!

I couldn't decide on one color~wanted to represent allllll of them on this clean and layered card ;).
 


 The card base came from a pack of polka dot card bases~it represents the boot.



I used the Tree-mendous die for the "egg" the birds are set on.

Hope you have a good one~
