Simply Awesome Father's Day Cards

Hi there! Its one week until Father's Day, are you ready?  I'm going to be honest, even though I've had the cards made for a while, I have no idea what to get my Daddy for Father's Day!?  What do you get a man that has everything? lol!
After I made all my personal Father's Day cards, I made a few for my Etsy shop and the one above was one of them.  Since I'm a bit slow posting these on my blog, its already gone!  A few of them didn't last too long on there.
This is made using my Cricut for the letters and some Lawn Fawn stamps, Aloha, Flamingo Together and Duh-nuh.  I have such fun with these stamps.  By the way, I get all of my Lawn Fawn goodies at Hallmark Scrapbook and Crafts.  They have the BEST customer service and a sale that calls for stocking up here and there. Check 'em out and tell them DeeDee sent you!
This is the one I made for my Daddy.  He has a camper and they love to go camping, so this card is perfect for him and I do like the way he rolls!  These are also Lawn Fawn Stamps, Happy Trails and the clouds are Cricut Hello Kitty.
This card is for my oldest son that just became a first time Daddy in April!  He is truly a jawsome Dad!  This is a Lawn Fawn set called Duh-nuh.  I love that name! lol! The letters and sun are Cricut.
These next two are really plain and very masculine I think.  I simply used strips of coordinating papers and some letters from Cricut to make this one in shades of green. It's listed in my Etsy shop.
Same here, just used blues and added a sentiment using my printer.  This one is listed in my Etsy shop.
This last one is the same design, but its in red, white and blue and I added a few Lawn Fawn stamped cars from the set called Home for the Holidays.  The puffs of smoke are from the Happy Trails set.  This card too was for sale in my Etsy shop, but its already gone! Zoom!!!  I always offer FREE shipping in my Etsy shop, so please visit me sometime.

Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Handmade Teacher Appreciation Cards

It's that time again!  The school year is almost gone and you'll want to be sure and thank your child's teacher for all their hard work this year.  I have created a few different cards for my Etsy shop.
This design is one I found on Pinterest last year and it was a best seller, so I used it again this year, just different papers.  So cute!  See all the details about that HERE.
This design I also found on Pinterest.  It's adorable!  I used my Cricut for the die cut and a Paper Smooches stamp for the sentiment.
And lastly, one more design I found on Pinterest.  This one uses a vintage Kim Hughes stamp for the apple and the thanks.  NOTE:  Of course when I use other peoples designs, I always put my own twist on the card but if you'd like to see any of the original cards, please check out my "I LOVE IT" board on Pinterst.

Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Mother's Day Cards for the Kitty Lover

Hello there! Does anyone send greeting cards anymore? What about handmade cards?  I would love to get a handmade card in the mail!  I feel like this fun ritual of sending cards for special occasions has dwindled since I started all this back in 2007, I think it was.

Anyway, I still make them and put them in my Etsy shop and on a rare occasion, someone will purchase one.  It's still very fun for me and as I said on Instagram a few days ago, it's like a therapy session for me when I sit down and create cards.
These cards were all created using the LawnFawn stamp set called "Meow You Doin'" and of course its all about cats as you can see.  My favorite part of using the LawnFawn stamps is the little die cuts that you can get for each set to cut out each stamp beautifully.  Love it!

The card above is NOT for sale because its for MY sweet mama!  I used my Cricut Expressions machine and the  Cuttin' Up cartridge to cut out (at 1" each) the letters,  Everything else is from the stamp set.
I still use my Copic markers to color my stamps with and no, I'm still not really good at it, but hey, its FUN!

The card above is listed in my Etsy shop if you're interested.  I also used my Cricut for the letters, but these have the shadow feature used as well.  The inside reads: Wishing You A Pawsome Day.
This card is also for sale.  It's a Z fold card and is just a bit more interesting than the standard folding card I normally make.  The letters were also cut using my Cricut, but they are cut at 1 1/4" this time.

All of my cards come with an envelope for mailing and they are ALL FREE SHIPPING for you!

Check out my Etsy store if you're interested.


Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Elephant Wish Big Birthday Card

Hello! I recently got the Elphie Selfie stamp set by Lawn Fawn and I just can't stop making cards with it!  This sweet little guy is ready to wish that special someone a happy birthday with his balloon, birthday cake and a big wish!
I used the Elphie Selfie stamp set and the die cuts that go with it to create my card.  I purchased mine from Hallmark Scrapbook.  They offer A+ customer service and speedy shipping too!
First I stamped all my images on white card stock, then colored them with my Copic markers and then used the die cuts to cut them all out.
I used my Nesties to cut out the circles that the die cuts sit on.  I stamped the wish big directly onto the white circle.  Lastly I used some foam tape to pop up the elephant, his balloon and the cake.  The heart is glued directly to the white circle.

This sweet card is available in my Etsy store if you're interested.

Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Lucky Shamrock Banner

Hello there! This little banner was so easy to make that I had to share it with you.  Best of all, I used mostly scraps again to make it!
You can get all the details HERE if you want to make one for yourself.  Or, if making it yourself is just not in the stars, you can pop over to my Etsy shop and pick one up with FREE shipping.
I told you they were easy to make, so I just kept making them and I might as well share huh? lol!
