Good morning!!  Happy Saturday too!
Today, I am up to share my creation with you for this weeks challenge over at SweetStamps.
This week it's: Technique Spotlight: Quarter Fold Card
I have personally never seen or even heard of this type of card before, but it seemed interesting and even fun to try.  You can find a tutorial HERE
This is what my card looks like completed and folded!!  
The fun comes to life when you open it.  :)
The tutorial suggested 4 squares, but I opted for cutting the patterned paper the length and width of the card, since I knew I was going to be doing a lot of layering. 
This is what the card looks like once it is all opened up.
The sentiment is from the Cute As A Bunny stamp set.
This is what the outer layers of the card looks like.  This was the only way I could capture how cute this card really is!!
Finally here is that cute mocha bunny all colored up and sitting on that fence surrounded by those flowers!!  I really love this set...can you tell!!!  :)  Well I hope you will give this technique a try if you haven't already joined us this week.  The possibilities are endless.

Here are the product I used on my card:

This week we are being sponsored by Sami Stamps and I am using the beautiful image called: Bird Beauty  Isn't she just beautiful?!?!  You can only begin to wonder what she's thinking or the melody the birds are chirping!!  I had some fun on that hair!!  It's not perfect and I know that, because it was a challenge for me.  :)

For today's release, I actually have two projects for you!!  They both include older sets carried in the SweetStamps shop, that coordinate perfectly with today's release.
For my first card, I am using the adorable "Cute As a Bunny" set.  There is a girl and a boy version to this stamp, but as a mother of all boys, I had to color the version!  :)
Can you see the background he sits on?  That is the new "Basket Weave" stencil which comes in two different sizes!!!  I love dry embossing with the stencils.. Can you tell?   The sentiment is one of those older stamps carried in the SweetStamps collection, that pair perfectly with this set.
For my second card, I think I had way too much fun with this one!!
I embossed the new Easter egg Piccolo's with "Aged Pink" Enamel Powder.  I was going to go for a more shabby chic look, but decides to keep things a little simpler since these eggs are so pretty!!
I then dug up another older set "Jackie's Basket and Bow Duo" and brought this baby to life!!
I stamp the basket twice on two different sheets of what card stock.  I die cut the frame from one sheet and colored the bottom portion of the basket on the other.   Then I fussy cut the bottom portion out and embossed the edges.  I did this because I knew that I was going to be layering it and it would sort of curve; giving the basket more dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop in the hop is Denise's  blog!  
We hope you are inspired all along the way!

Hi everyone-
I am so ready for Spring!!  Aren't you!! 
Over the weekend, I cleaned out the flower garden; pulled weeds and fertilized.  There was nothing exciting to look at...So sad!!  So I had to color some flower (Spring) images.  
I took to coloring this beautiful image by Jennifer Dove.  OMG.. I just love her images and she is an AMAZING colorist too!!  This stamp is called: Hydrangea
When I see hydrangea's they never seem to be the same colors.  There is always a hint of pink, purple, blue and yellow mixed in each batch.  It's not quiet realistic, but it's pretty!!  :) 

I would like to share this card in the following challenges: 

Hope you can join us.. 
Hugs til next time. 

Hi everyone!!! 
Have you stopped by From The Heart Stamps this week?
You still have plenty of time to join us so come by....
I know St. Patrick's Day was yesterday but, I am still feeling rather green!!  Now remember I said that I normally don't tend to make St. Patricky Day cards!?!?
Well...I realized they don't have to be for St. Patrick's Day if they are colored in green right!?!? 
There are some of us who love that color combination... which I am beginning to love!! 
Green, Black and Gold....YUMMY!!                                                           
So for my card today I am using two images:
Using two different images.. the first is Sweet Chef and Cupcake Lineup
I love how you can easily transform these images when they are digital!! 
Here is a side view of the image, now you can see the Wink of Stella on her shoes, the cake plate, necklace and the tons of loose glitter floating around!
I am also using this weeks sketch challenge.  Wanted to use the twist as well but,  I was excited on how well everything came together.  I didn't want to chance messing something up!!  That is just being honest!!

I would like to share this card in the following challenges:

Hi everyone!!  I have to say that I had a SUPER exciting weekend!!!
My baby sister got engaged this weekend and her fabulous fiancé , included us in a scavenger hunt he had set up for her!!  So excited for both of them!!!  So anywho... I got so much crafting this weekend, that when it came to completing this weeks card for Sentimental Sundays, I completely lost all mojo!!
It just vanished!!  I colored the image 4 times, then I tried the chalkboard technique another 4...
I was DONE!!!

So today, I had to head to the other side of town and made a pit stop at Michaels! Browsed and browsed, before stopping at the Deco Foil.  So this foiling stuff seems to be the new craze now and figured I'd give it a try!!  Came home and tried 4 times and the foil would not transfer completely!!
So I had one more sheet left, give it one more shot!! 
Now... Isn't that image just gorgeous!!??  We are being sponsored by PolkaDoodles and I wanted to badly to use this image. This image is form January's release, which is absolutely amazing but, then I saw March's release... OMG!!!  You really ought to seek them out if you've haven't already!!! 
 So now you see why, I was so determined.  You can't really can't see the foil in this image but, if you look at the sentiment in the upper left and then at the image you can see it's sort of green. 
I had to take this picture at a weird angle, so that I could capture the foil on camera but, isn't that cool!?!?!?!  It looks so pretty in person!!  I can see this becoming very addicting!!!  LOL

So I will hope that you will swing by Sentimental Sundays and join us this week.  Our challenge is all about: 
Fairies/Fairy Tales

 I would like to share this project in the following challenges: 

Hugs.
