Cas-ual Friday Challenge #45 and Paper Dolls Challenge

I based this card on today's CAS-ual Friday challenge to use pastels and black. And also the Paper Dolls Spring with Bling Challenge.

However, I'm not too sure if it's really that CAS. I did fidget with a sentiment trying it here and there. Put it on a little tag, thought about stamping it on the window box. But decided against all of it because it really looked too busy.

I don't have the actual window box die so what I did was die cut the large Madison window and cut it off at the top. I turned it upside down and trimmed it down to fit the small window. I strategically placed the butterfly over the cut.

For the window curtains I used some sheer ribbon.

Somebody please remind me to let the stickles dry before I fidget, touch or mess with the card. I cannot tell you how many times I had to take the smear of glitter off of the wrong place and re-do it. And it definitely is not the first card I have ever done that. Will I ever learn?!

Be sure to check back tomorrow as there is a little blog  hop for a very special person!!

Dogwood with Bling

Here I am back with another Dogwood Blossom card.
I created this one for the Paper Dolls Spring Bling Challenge.
I stamped the blossoms twice in order to cut them out and pop them up.
There is a bit of stickles as my bling in the center of the flowers.
I wanted this to be a clean and simple card and I think I accomplished it!

Thanks for stopping by and indulging in my OCD. ;)

Blossoms Through a Window

I have this weird OCD where I get a new stamp and I use it over and over and over. Sometimes I don't like what I make so I don't bother to post it here. I was almost not sure of this one, but I really like the idea of a blossom outside of the window. I may need to do it over again. I'll let you know if I do. ;)

This one is also going to Operation Write Home. :)

Sending You Lots of Love

I just recently purchased some Lawn Fawn for the very first time. I was impressed with the quick shipping, the packaging and the cute little thank you note from Kelly Marie.

I fell in  love with this adorable mailbox and I know I will be using it again and again.
This is another card that is going to Operation Write Home.
