Bunny Lamb

   Hi everyone! Leah Schaeffer with you today to share a little whimsical card today. Something to keep me thinking of warmer days ahead in the Spring or the fun of Easter time...this card could be themed to go either way with a great sentiment inside. 
   I knew immediately when I saw these Bunny Photo Props that I wanted to "dress up" another animal...I've never used this sweet little lamb before and could so see how cute these 2 files would be put together! I was right, it's just darling! I kinda of want to do an Easter layout with a bunch of different animals dressed up as bunnies...would be so, so fun, right? 

   I added a fence in the background and clustered the flowers from the Little Lamb cutting file.

Lots of files used!

Talk about growing up!

Hi, it's Ruth and my project today celebrates how much my son has matured in the last year. I love seeing my children take chances and grow and that's where we're at right now as my son gets ready to leave middle school for high school.
Lisa has some great files for documenting these moments.
Here's my layout:

I used the:
Notebook Pages Cutting Files for my jouraling spot with a pattern from the School Days Pattern Pack filled in and then did print and cut,
Hats Off Cutting Files for the graduation caps, simplified to two layers
Old Chap Cutting Files for the glasses since my son's glasses played a big role in the left side photo.

You know what this page would be perfect for? The Anything Goes challenge going on right now! I hope you'll join in using whatever files from Lisa you want and creating whatever you want with them! Details about the challenge are linked through the challenge icon on the upper right of this page!

Thanks for stopping by today! If you want to see more photos or hear more about my page, I'd love for you to stop by my blog: Paper and Musings.
Wishing you happy crafting!

You have made my day!

Good Morning!

Hope you are having a great week.  I've got a cute card to share with you today.  I made this card to send to a friend who gave me a bunch of recipe books and a really nice butcher block.  I thought since she made my day, I would make hers.  I plan on including a Starbucks gift card with my card as well.

For my card base I used the A2 Card Bases 1 Cutting Files.  The Ladybug is from the Lucky Ladybug Cutting Files.  The grass and mushrooms are from the Gnomies Cutting Files.  The sun is from the Day at the Beach Cutting Files.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a great week.
