Happy Mother's Day

Hello my Crafty Friends!!!!
It's been awhile since I have posted. 
Sorry! Life just seems to get in the way!!!
Can't believe it is May already! I have been
looking forward to May since January as 
Memorial Day gives me a 3 day weekend
off from work!! I have received several
new crafty items lately and hope to get
to use them soon.  But for this card I broke 
out with an old favorite Stampin' Up set
called Vintage Vogue.  I think anything
you make with this set comes out pretty
and easy too! I even used my SU 
embossing folder called Framed Tulips.

Birthday Fishes

Hello my Crafty Friends!!!!!
So I got to sit and color up some 
images with my bestie this past weekend.

images already colored up laying around.
I have been wanting to color up this cute
mermaid ever since I received it in my 
newsletter from The Greeting Farm. I 
don't know exactly what her name is so
I guess I will call her Mermaid Anya 2.

Isn't she Beautiful?!?!? I am in need
of Birthday cards in my stash and this
is what I came up with. I used the sketch
my layout.

I am entering this card into a few more challenges:

Critters at the Dog Park

Hello Crafty Friends!!!!
Getting my craft room back 
in order to be able to craft in again 
has been a chore!!! But I think
I can craft in there again!! 
So I have this Facebook friend, 
Missy Johnson, and she is turning 50
this weekend. She is having a fundraiser
to mail her a Birthday card with a 
donation to help out some causes in her 
area like Unchain Charleston dogs.
The funds are going to be used to buy 
dog houses and fences so these fur 
babies don't have to be chained up. 
I have a 3 year old basset hound named Bentley.
I could not imagine chaining him up 
all day while I am at work. 
So I thought I would use this cute stamp by 
Lawn Fawn called Critters at the Dog Park.

My inspiration for the layout is from
 the Sketch Saturday #353 challenge this week.

I am also entering this card into 3 other challenges:
Simon Says Stamp  Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly  A Cut Above (Die cutting)
Craft Your Passion  #254  Anything Goes

Thanks very much stopping by!!!
Wishing you all a very Wonderful day!!!

hugs, Heidi
