Welcome my friends,

It's the first Tuesday of the month and that means Designer Challenge day for the Karen Burniston design team.  Our challenge this month is Yummy - make something with good food on it so I went with cupcakes. 


I used the Crosshatch Long Rectangles and a small cupcake from the Cupcake Pop Up die set for the front.  

On the inside I went a little crazy with 6 lovely "Yummy" cupcakes all popped up with the Upsy Daisy die set.

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Easter Thoughts

 Hello Friends,

Now that we have St. Patrick's Day behind us, it's time to think about those cute little Easter Bunnies and all the fun stuff that goes with them.  I used the Photo Collage die set from Karen Burniston to create this card and you can check out all the goodies in the links below.  It is an explosion of fun.

Easter will be here before you know it so get started!

Have a creative weekend,

 Hi Friends,

Welcome back - today I am sharing some new Script Dies from It's Cheaper Than Therapy called SENDiments.  My friend, Maria, asked me to make some cards using the dies so here we go.

Another two for the day-

Here are two more for today -

I made several cards using these beautiful dies and will put a link to each one below so you can check them out.  I will be featuring two each day for the next few days so you can see them in use.

All of these great dies are perfect for the slimline cards and I have paired the SENDiments up with some Karen Burniston Long Rectangles also available from It's Cheaper Than Therapy.

I will see you tomorrow with a couple more cards using these lovely dies.

Black, White & Red
