Birthday card using Mini Monograms

I made this simple card for my oldest niece. She turned 25 today. She is a member of a sorority and she loves the colors red and white. I used Mini Monograms for the scallop and circle and a stamp from ki memories for the elephant. The white cardstock is Papertrey Ink and the red cardstock is from walmart. I used the swiss dots cuttlebug folder to emboss just half of the red layer, then used a sentiment from a Hero Arts stamp set that I purchased from Micheals. The ribbon is from walmart as well. Hope she really likes it.

Robyn's Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge!

This is my entry to the Pinkalicious Blog Hop with Robyn @ My Pink You have to make something Spring. I love Spring! My kids love the warmer weather that Spring brings, but the one thing that my 4 yr old hates is bugs! (lol). I used the create a critter cart to make this cute bug that she surely will like :) Hope you like it as well.

My Pink Stamper's Challenge!

I can't believe I've had this many posts this week! I made this card for My Pink Stamper's challenge of using a feathered friend. I used the Stamping Solutions cart because I rarely cut with it and I'm really trying to get some use out of the carts that I already own. This cart is full of cute shapes and sentiments. Hope you like it and please feel free to comment.
