What a BEAUTIFUL day!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday today.  It's so gorgeous here today and this is the 2nd time our yard has been mowed.  I'm not really ready to do this in March, but it needed to be done, so here is what I did today.

                                  Some of my bulbs are blooming.  I always enjoy this!

    These are mini daffodils!  They are so adorable.  I took some into work last week for others to enjoy.

                                                            Here is the back yard

                                                                 Here is the side yard

                                                            More of the side yard

                                                              The rest of the side yard

                   Here is a view from the front!  Thanks for stopping by my place this afternoon.

                                                              Have a great week!

Mojo Monday 233

Hi everyone!  Thanks for taking a peek at my Mojo Monday card.  LOVE having these sketches to work with.  I decided to use some brighter spring like colors since that is the weather we are having here in NW Indiana.  It was 85 today!  UNHEARD March.  Anyway....back to the card.

This cute gingham check flower I got at Michael's for $1.50 for 12 :)  the yellow flower I've had forever, it's a Prima.  The little bee I've had in my stash and believe its from K&Company.

I used my Spellbinders lacey square and used distress ink in straw.  The scallop on the left in green was cut with a die from Stampin' Up!  

Used some pop up dots for some depth....

And this is the finished card!  See you soon...

Time Flies

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I got these papers and stickers at Joann's the other day.  It was all on SALE!  Picked up some really good items there.

                                           Used some of Pink Paislee's butterfly 3D stickers.

      The border is from Stampin'Up!.  I used some pop up dots under the top layer to add some depth.

This sweet little flower with the heart stick pin is from Lil Sweetpea!  I won some candy on her blog and this was on the bag she gave me the candy in.  Isn't it cute??!! I added some crinkle ribbon and twine behind that.

            Here is the end result!  Thanks for stoppin' in today.  Hope you have a great day.

Just me....thinking of you

Gotta love the Mojo Monday' is another older sketch (maybe a week ago).....Used My Minds Eye line again.

                        Used some of the matching brads from My Minds Eye.  Paper is the same line.

Love crinkle ribbon....don't you? 
Thanks for looking tonight!

Thanks.....kindness matters

Guess what?  This card I made is from this week's Mojo Monday #231.  I hope it's posted on their site by the time this is on my blog! Here's hoping I have it right....This was a fun one to do.

                                                       The paper line Authentic. The stamps I got
                                for ordering some other items from Stampin'Up!  The half doily
                                worked so well with the cute little stamp that is the same....half

                                     Just got this die and love it! SOOO many possibilities!! It's from
                                   Stampin' Up!

I made this card for my dear friend as a thank you for a gift she gave me!  Hope she likes it.  Have a great day.

This little card was another design from Mojo Monday.  If you haven't checked it out, you should.  You get a great sketch to create a card with.  The sketch is the hard part for me if I try to come up with it on my own!  How about you??

                                                              The lace is from Prima.

The name of the flower escapes me...sorry!  The paper line is My Minds Eye....I should have stock in the company!  Love all their lines.

Not the best picture...I'll try to do better next time.  Cut some of the top off .....OOOPPPSS!
                     Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!  Hope you enjoyed looking.
                                                      Enjoy your evening~kathy

Happy Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

I've had some computer "issues" that have kept me from posting, so I hope I can get caught up.
There are some new cards to show you from Mojo Monday sketches....this is a sketch from a couple of weeks ago.  I've never posted on there yet, but hope to this week.  Anyway....on to the birthday card.

                                    The papers I used are from BoBunny Gabrielle collections.

This is what I came up with.  Typed Happy Birthday on my computer and then centered a Spellbinder over it.  Had some little cream colored flowers so one went on here with a peachy colored ribbon behind it.  The little pearls just add something I felt was needed.  
Thanks for stopping by~
