Cards on Thursday

I can't believe I forgot my Bella Blvd. Cards on Thursday post! What?!?! I live for this kind of crafty stuff! ;) 

So, without further ado...I created this patriotic Peace. Love. Freedom card with the All American collection and some lovely red, stitched edged ribbon.

My second card is a colorful and fun mix of the Love and Marriage line with crochet accents. Ooh la la, I love the texture!

Will you be spending a bit of time crafting this weekend? I'm not sure if I'll be. We have a birthday party to attend on Saturday and I have some plants to pot and house cleaning to do. We'll see.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! :)

One of my favorite things about spring is being able to leave the bedroom window open all night, listening to crickets while drifting off to sleep and waking to the birds singing. That's what this little bird reminds me of. :)

I thought I'd revisit the Family Ties collection by Pebbles and created this 'tweet' card with it.

Hope you have a lovely spring day! :)

How was your weekend? We had a wonderfully relaxing one! I went on a junk hunt at the flea market Saturday morning and found a great big iron fire pit. We tested it out that night with some marshmallows! Oh...yum! We made a trip to our local nursery for a couple plants for the front door. We enjoyed the beautiful weather while doing a little yard work and going on a hike. Dan and I reacquainted ourselves with the game Parcheesi. :)

This morning I'm back in my office playing with paper and created this card to share with you. I used Pebbles' Walnut Grove collection. I haven't been using much ribbon on my cards lately so it was fun playing with this wide grosgrain style. What do you think? Do you like bows on cards? 

Hope you have a great week! Thanks for your visit!

Bella Blvd. & Hampton Arts

Attention stampers and fans of Bella Blvd. and Hampton Arts...this week the Bella Blvd. design team is providing you with some stamping inspiration using the newest cling stamps (Love and Marriage, Sand and Surf, and Kiss Me) licensed and manufactured through Hampton Art Stamps

For my friendship card I used the Sand and Surf collection.

For this Mr. and Mrs. card I used the Love and Marriage line.

To see what my teammates created with these stamps visit the Bella Blvd. blog. Enjoy all the projects! :)

Today I have a graduation card to share with you using Doodlebug Design's new Cap and Gown collection.

Isn't the Doodle Pop cap accent adorable?!?! 

Even more adorable is Oreo here! I think this line is the perfect match for him! ;) 

Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for visiting!
