A Tisket, A Tasket.....


Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog :)

Today I am sharing a project for Cards und More Challenge Blog!

Cards und More - Challengeblog

Our theme for the next 2 weeks is Easter and our wonderful sponsor is none other than Little Crafts


For my card, there is not one bit of stamping!! I absolutely LOVE Doodlebug paper pads and I wanted to show you how easy it is to utilize all pages in the pad....inside each 6 x 6 pad there are full sheets of pattern paper, PLUS there are additional sheets that have these little panels on them that you can cut out and assemble a card or layout:


I put together my card in less than 15 minutes with some added gum drops in the corner:


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:



Thank you so much for stopping in today! Be sure to hop on over to the Cards und More Challenge blog HERE to link up your Easter project for us...we'd love to see you there! Cheers!

pink borders for baby girls room - Google Search:

Lesley, you have been such an inspiration to me and a dear friend throughout my crafting journey! Your heart is full of gold and you are always so giving and loving....so now, it's my turn, along with a few of your friends *wink* to give to YOU (and your family!) with this blog hop and online baby shower.....

Lesley, you received a box the other day and now is the time you get to open it! I sure hope Corey takes pics/videos of you opening your goodies - that would be so fun!


Now, I cannot show the card I made The Croghan's as it is for a future challenge - however, I made a crocheted afghan for her and I am so happy with how it turned out (I hope you like it Lesley!) 




As I was working on it, I thought of you and your new family, and put many blessings into it and lots and lots of love for you and your family!

Adorable Vintage Pink Baby Girl Shower Photo Sculpture:

Alright - now...onto the party!!!  We are linking up the cards/gifts we have made for you guys here so you can go each individual blog and read what is there for you while you read the cards from the box! :) 

We tried to contact as many people as we could that Lesley had contact with to join our blog hop, so if someone was not contacted, my sincere apologies - you can still play along with us by making a card and linking up here! I have left the inlinkz gallery open until March 31 at midnight MST - come celebrate with us! xoxoxoxo

Have fun Lesley (and Corey) - love and hugs to you both and God bless you and your new family! xoxoxoxo
