Cardztv 3D Birthday Challenge #2

Welcome to my blog today!

I love doing the 3D challenges so I hope
you are playing along.
Mary has challenged her Design Team to
come up with a birthday 3D project.
Since I love making cards and so many people
love a homemade card, I made a set
of four birthday cards to give a special someone.

I packaged the cards in a plastic box I purchased from  I love their products and they have so
many to choose from, but these were especially designed
for A2 cards.  Four cards fit nicely and make a lovely gift.

Here's a close up of the box!

And a close up of the card.
I used Going in Circles

Here's a quick video!

This is the first time I've ever done a sunburst card.
It was so much fun - you must try one!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great weekend.

Trendy Twine Challenge

I have no idea what I did before
twine.  I know that might sound like a
stretch, but I honestly haven't a clue what
I did before I started to purchase these gorgeous
rolls of color from Trendy Twine.  I love
the rainbow of colors they offer and they are 
such a great value.  I use twine for everything now
and it dresses up a project instantly.

Here is a gift I made for the hubs
for Valentine's Day.

I can't remember when I've made a pom pom,
so I decided to top off my cashew box with
one.  I mixed Totally White & Peppermint Stick
together to make it.

Here's a close up!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Happy crafting!

Cardztv 3D Challenge!

How exciting to be a part of a NEW
design team?  I'm pumped!
Thank you to Mary the creator and master
mind behind Cardztv Stamps has divided
our team into two distinct directions.

I'm thrilled to be on the 3D team.  Adding
dimension to my projects has always been
fun and now I get to take YOU with me.
Are you ready for some 3D fun?

Before Christmas, I found these jars on sale
at my local grocery.  I had no idea what I was going
to do with them.  With Valentine's Day coming soon
I needed to find a gift for my grandsons.  I can just see
these jars filled with Valentine treats!

I used my Silhouette to design and cut two circles
for the lids.  I then created a two layered
tags along with hearts and sentiments
from "Heart to Heart" Cardztv stamp set.

LOVE how these turned out!

Ready to join in the fun?  I can't
wait to see what you create.

Thanks for stopping by, now head back
