3 'sweet' cards one sketch

When I saw the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches I knew I wanted to create some simple cards... not an easy task for me :)  I decided to whip up three cards as I really liked the sketch and, well, they were quick and easy... no stitching, staples or pattern paper!

The lined paper is from the Memo Fundamentals collection by CTMH... I like how the lined paper just makes these cards a little casual.   All cardstock is from CTMH love the weight of it!

First up I used the Cookies and Milk stamp and die set from MFT. The top cookie is mounted on foam squares. 

Next up... same theme different set :)  I have had this stamp set for a few years and am finally inking it up!  It is from W plus 9.  Again the cookies are on foam squares. 

Finally, I had to create a donut card... and add a little 'more' to the sketch so I added a layer :)  

The top donut is on foam squares. 

Here is the sketch:

Reclaimed Wooden Signs

I've had a few people ask if I have created any more signs... well yes I have :)  You can see them here at my other blog and a peek into our home ;)

Welcome Baby Girl Blog Hop

I'm so excited to take part in this event!  We are welcoming the wonderful Lesley's baby girl that is due in April!  So excited for you and your hubby Lesley!

I used some Pebbles paper along with some MFT dies. 

The bib of course is mounted on foam squares for dimension :)

Now to see all of the wonderful creations.... head on over to

Full cup long book

I decided to play along with the Coffee Lover Papercrafters Blog Hop again while I had some time.

I used the Chasing Dreams by Crate Paper... so pretty!
 Lots of fussy cutting of books from some pattern paper.

The tea cup is from The Ton.  I cut a slit in the tea cup to tuck in some 'books' and then mounted on foam squares.

A moment for tea


Happy Friday... although truth be told, I would be much happier if the rain stopped :)

I have a tea themed card for you today as I am playing along in the spring Coffee Loving Papercrafters Blog Hop.

I used some Chickaniddy Crafts papers along with some MFT stamps and dies.  

Doesn't that yellow gingham just say spring to you?  I fussy cut some flowers using the CTMH Micro tip scissors and adhered them to the cups and tucked in behind my main image that has been mounted on foam squares.
