March Hostess Club Cards

I have been working hard at getting all of my Hostess Club projects made.  These three cards are for my card making/scrapbooking club.  These members have a choice of making either cards or a double scrapbook page.  With the release of the New Spring/Summer Ideabook, I wanted to make sure and use new product.  Although...I have soooo much older paper to use up.  I could be in my room 24-7 for several days and still need to use them up!! ;)  All three of these cards were inspired by cards made by Vicki Wizniuk.  I visit her blog often and I am always inspired by something she creates!

Thanks for stoppping by!

Mojo Monday 227

Wow!  I can't believe how long it has been since I did a Mojo Monday Sketch!  I love these, but I guess I have been out of touch for a bit.  And of course, this is the first sketch of the month, so I want to join the contest. ;)

I just got some new CTMH product delivered yesterday, but I am trying to be good and use up some papers that have been collecting dust.  I absolutely love this older paper called Veranda.  It is definitely one of my favorites.  Its romantic and the color combo is beautiful.  I used a stamp that is really versatile too.  When the time comes to give this card away, I will mark the box for the perfect occasion.

I hope you enjoy this card and thank you for stopping by!

H2H 3-D Project Challenge

I am a week behind on posting my project for the H2H Challenge last week.  It is a good thing that you have all month to participate in these challenges.  Sometimes I have too much going on to work on something right away.

I have been wanting to make this frame for quite some time.  I saw this project originally from Corina Mitchell on her blog.  I had to make it and thought I would put it in my boys' room, but it actually looks really good in our Mudroom.  I think tucking some recent pictures or notes will be really fun!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
