ODBD April Challenge

The April challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs is to make a card with an insect on it. I haven't been able to be crafty at all lately due to some water leaks in our hot water pipe that runs right over my craft room. My husband is working on replacing all the water pipes this week. So, this is what my room currently looks like.


But I recently taught a card class for my friend's co-op school and realized one of the cards works perfectly for the current ODBD challenge since it has a butterfly on it.

Cards in Envy - April Showers

Welcome to the second challenge in April over at Cards in Envy. It's time to make cards featuring things related to rain. Such as umbrellas, puddles, rain drops, etc. I used this sweet little bunny from MFT and paper pieced his little rain boots and umbrella.

And another 6x6 paper pad is completed. I made a total of 23 cards from Echo Park's Happy Camper line. Lots of great masculine cards that will be perfect for Operation Write Home.

OWH MWT - Disney Kids' Cards

The OWH Midweek Throwdown this week is to make Disney Kids' cards. Now, I will confess I missed that the card is also supposed to be a birthday card. I guess that means I will have to make another one, but I'm out of crafty time today. I really had fun with this new Deconstructed Sketch.

Hello Foxy!

I saw this super cute fox paper at my LSS the other day and just had to buy it. I don't usually buy 12 x 12 paper anymore since I'm such a huge fan of 6 x 6 paper pads, but I thought it would be perfect for a card kit. I now have pieces all cut for 16 of these.

OWH MWT - Masculine cards

I've got 2 cards to share today and both are masculine, I think. The current 6x6 paper is definitely more guyish, so all of my cards from this pad will probably be masculine. But that's good, because most of the time Sandy at Operation Write Home is just flooded with girlie cards.

*Update. I've added on one more card today. A fellow OWHer, Cora, posted a fun challenge on the OWH Facebook page today. She challenged everyone who owns the Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments stamp set to make a card using it. This is one of my favorite sets, so I just had to play along. Here's my card.

U R Loved

I have far too many Project Life cards than I'll ever be able to use in my scrapbooks. So I've been using them more and more lately on cards. I thought this 'Loved' card would be perfect paired with a U and an R.
