Card Makers Share the Love

A quick post today.....A little girl has one Make a Wish dream.... and we can help make that dream come true.

Take a minute to watch this sweet request: 

Allyson's address is:  Allyson Peterson - P.O. Box 1016 - Hurontown - Houghton MI  49931 USA.

Remember the card doesn't need to be handmade, but it's nice if it could be.  And it doesn't have to be themed. any girly card will do.

More about this card later.....

Let's make a dream come true.

Hugs from me to you.

Easy Easter Baskets

I want to thank May May  for creating a YouTube tutorial on this cute basket.  The finished basket size is about 4 x 4 and holds many treasures!

This basket was super easy to make and really quick.  The top basket took a bit longer because I used a border punch on all the white pieces.  You kind of play around until you get the size that will fit.

If you need a quick project....this is a good one.

Off I go.  On to more playing with paper.  I hope your day is creative no matter what you are doing.

Hugs from me to you,

Silver and Gold

Are you getting sick of seeing the same paper line?  I've had such fun creating with this paper line (Graphic45).  I have lots of it left...seems I purchased enough to last a lifetime.  That's ok, because I love it.  This time, I'm using scraps.  I found lots of pieces I could cut to 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 (the smallest) to make this card.  The gold trim and the die cut trees and candy canes are also made from scrap.  I really like how this card turned out.  This month's Sparkles Christmas Challenge  was chosen by Babs and the theme is Must have Silver or Gold   I don't know if you can see all the gold but I framed all the squares in gold and of course the die cuts were all gold too.

Here's the inside:

Now, I'd like to see what you make using silver or gold.  And share on the Sparkles Christmas Challenge blog page.  

Ok, I'm off to see what kind of trouble I can get into.  Have a crafty month and see you soon.
