Hey card-making friends!  
I have been crafting ALL DAY!  Hannah is away at Nana's house for the week, while Greg and the boys worked outside mowing yard and put up gates at the county fairgrounds...a perfect day for me to get lost in the craft cave!

I cut a bunch of Paper Smooches flowers and created a bouquet of sorts on my card...then used a big THANKS sentiment ... a great thank you card to have on hand!

There's a bit of The Twinery Baker's Twine and some yummy Pretty Pink Posh sequins on my card, too!

Thanks for stopping by the stage!

Hello Summer Pocket Card Album - Top Dog Dies

How fun is this summer project?! 
I used some fabulous Bella Blvd Summer Squeeze collection with a couple of awesome Top Dog Dies to create this mini pocket album, of sorts!

Top Dog Dies A2 Card #2 Die
Top Dog Dies Darby Doily & Tags Die Set
Top Dog Dies Wesley Border Die

Here's a peek at the inside of the Top Dog Dies A2 Card the enclosure tab of this die and the coordinating pocket card die that goes with it!  Top Dog Dies Darby Doily & Tags Die Set help jazz up the front of this pocket set.  The Top Dog Dies Wesley Border Die trims the card that are nestled inside.

What a fun summer project to hold some cherished summer memories!  Linking this one up to the Catered Crop-summer Lovin' challenge, too...

Let's Celebrate

There's only a couple of weeks left before the 4th of July!
The summer is flying by...TOO fast!

I whipped up a festive celebratory card using some awesome Reverse Confetti!

 A couple of my Reverse Confetti teammates placed their Confetti Cuts Oh My Stars a little catty-whompus on their cards...and I had to steal that's so fun and festive!  The Confetti Cuts Love Note was topped with a Confetti Cuts Class Act vellum rectangle and finished off with a Confetti Cuts Beautiful Banners banner:)  The Beautiful Banners sentiment is perfect for an Independence Day card!  

You can get all of these fun Reverse Confetti goodies and more on sale this week!
