The 3 years old daughter of one of my cousins recently fell in the stairs and broke her collarbone! :-( This happened to my daughter a few years ago (she fell from a tree) and it was a very painful and slow recovery. So I made a little card to cheer her up. :-)
I used Melanie's bunny, stamped on craft cardstock and cut out, then I bended the right paw, and made my own little sling out of Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine. So fun! :-)
I hope she'll get a little kick out of it... :-)

Do you love vintage graphics? Do you like free printables?
Thanks to Pinterest, I discovered Sweetly Scrapped . Emily comes up with free printables faster than I can papercraft! ;-D
Pay her a little visit, she has fun stuff for every taste! I am not really into vintage and I found lots of cute accents for scrapbooking or cardmaking. :-)
Today she has a whole mini album with tabs!... :-)

This is my entry for SVG Cuts Valentine's Day challenge. It's been ages since I entered one of their challenges so this time I told myself I would do it no matter what! ;-)
I used the candy box and the heart pennants from "Love Me Do" collection. The little fence is from the "Love Bear Village"collection, and the birds are from "Robin's return" collection.
It's hard to get an idea of the scale on the pic but those are actually quite big, 5 1/2 " in height.
I used coordinating cardstocks so the color theme is the same for all. This is box 1.
This is box 2. I love that plaid with spring colors. <3 :-)
This is box 3.
Not sure what will go in the boxes so I just put some tissue paper in there for now, but in retrospect it might not have been a good idea, it makes it hard to see the details... Oh well! LOL ;-) As always, click on any pic and you will get a bigger version. Plenty of details that way! :-)
I had initially planned on giving those to my kiddos for Valentine's day, but I think they are too cute and would be crushed too fast... >.< So I am saving them instead... Bad Mommy!... LOL ;-)
Today theme for PTI's 5th anniversary challenges is leaves and butterfly...
So I used my beloved "Turn a new Leaf" stamps set and dies to create this foliage for my felt butterfly.
It's really hard to see in the pic but I stamped some text, using "Background Text Style II" on some copy paper and then cut out more leaves. It is pretty in real life but barely there, so almost impossible to capture in a pic for someone like me... ;-) You'll just have to take my word for it...

It's PaperTrey Ink 5th anniversary this month, and as part of the festivities there are contest and challenges. Yesterday the theme was hearts...
I had till this morning to enter but somehow managed to forget to put the pics on my blog and enter the contest and now it's behind the deadline! >.< Oh well....
It's PaperTrey Ink 5th anniversary this month, and as part of the festivities there are numerous contests or challenges...
Yesterday the theme was to use hearts, so I made this simple little stamped number. :-)
Love those patterned hearts. <3 :-D
Of course because it is me, I took pictures and all, but then I forgot to put them on my blog and enter the contest before this morning... So now the deadline is over... :-S Oh well I love my card, that's all that matters, right?... ;-)

I hate making sympathy cards. They are supposed to be uplifting but not "happy" and I never know quite how to do this... :-S It just makes me sad for the recipient and I feel powerless. :-( I usually try to make it as simple as I can. Here I used a sympathy stamps set by PaperTrey Ink and just heat embossed the greenery and sentiment. The front panel is propped up on pop dots.
