I was so inspired by the beautiful notebook made by Jenny Marples for this week's challenge at Frilly and Funkie - Sound of Music that I asked her if she would mind if I CASE it for a wedding card...but then the texture paste I used kept curling the cardstock, so I ended up using the texture flourish on a piece of vellum and attached it to the top portion...don't get me wrong, it curled also, but I was able to flatten it out! I copied the music score from The Wedding Song by Peter, Paul & Mary...love that song.
Thanks again for the wonderful inspiration!

At Simon Says Stamp the Monday Challenge is We've Got Your Number...add a number somewhere on your creation.
Well, my very good friend just had her 60th birthday...and we're both setting a goal to lose some weight before summer...so this Happy "29th" Birthday card was perfect for her. The inside sentiment reads 'from your "110 lb." friend.'
So I turned it into another easel card so you could see both sentiments at the same time.
I just love these Graphic45 images. The sentiment stamps are from Skipping Stones Design, and the tag outline stamp and die are from Tim Holtz Snowman Blueprint.
Thanks for stopping by!

The current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie is 'Count Me In', to use numbers in your project. This fit in perfectly for my youngest son's birthday this week when I found a sheet from an old 6 x 6 paper pack by Cosmo Cricket, especially since he just turned 26! The Jack Russell Terrier image is an old one I found through Stampers Best back in the days of Operation Write Home because we had the cutest little Jack Russell named Jesse. I thought the birthday cupcake image from Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints would tie in the birthday theme well.
In keeping with my recent trend, I turned it into an easel card.
The current theme is Happy Birthday at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge .

This card is for my grandson who just turned 4. Several years ago I picked up some St. Patrick's Day pins and thought he could wear this pin to pre-school. The cute little frog is from Stampendous and I thought it tied with kissing a frog and green and kiss me, I'm Irish...I'm sure it will be lost on a four year old! Oh well, I enjoyed it!
I've been using little 'treat cups' for his cards recently so I thought I'd better improvise and send him a little treat with his card. I wrapped a little mint in cardstock and stamped some green stars on it and added another score at the 1/4 inch mark to allow for the extra depth. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Operation Write Home set.

This card is for my one year old granddaughter. I think this is the first stamp set I ever purchased. It was from a Stampin'Up Party hosted by my sister-in-law and was probably over 20 years ago...then I didn't do any stamping for about 12 years and started 'getting into' papercrafting finally about 8 years ago. I tend to be a papercraft hoarder, I don't think I've ever gotten rid of any stamp set, so I do like to pull out the oldies once in a great while!
Looking at this picture of the card, it seems a little plain now, but for a one-year-old I hate to use much in the way of embellishments.

This one is for my (almost) 4 year old grandson. I've been using these Treat Cups from Stampin'Up for the past several cards I've made for him, looks like I've started something and will need to buy more if they're even available still. I added a kite tail for the string to the 'balloon', from Hero Arts Operation Write Home, Right at Home; The Hello Handsome is from Hero Arts Operation Write Home, Year Round Sentiment. The cute little dog is of course from Tim Holtz Mini Cats and Dogs.
Of course, this one had to be an easel card to match his sister's...a little trickier providing access to the treat! The hugs + kisses is from Hero Arts Operation Write Home, Year Round Sentiment, and the Happy Valentine's Day is from an old Stampin'Up set, Holidays and Wishes.
This is my second card for Simon Says: Cute
I'm on an Easel Card kick, I know my daughter-in-law will want to display their cards for a few days!
The tag die is from Spellbinders-Ribbon Tag Trio Two, the sentiment is from an old Stampin'Up set, Holidays and Wishes.
I thought this was good for the challenge at Simon Says: Cute
