So, do you remember how I teased you in my last post that I had a card in mind that I just had to make? Well, it took until Thursday at 9:00pm to get the time to make it. Also, another added bonus is the design team over at MPS issued a challenge to make a Animal type card. Don't you just love how everything comes together? This card is for a friend that needed a pick me up. She has been sick for a while so I thought I would make her a "Hang in There" type card. So, what could be better than a cute monkey just hanging around! ;o)
Now, to the card...The base is cardstock by Paper Trey Ink. The other colors are just random cardstock I had in my scraps bin. All of the cuts are from my favorite cartridge Create a Critter. I use it so much that I just keep it laying out on my desk. The trees were cut at 2 3/4 I also used the flip feature for the other side, the branch was cut at 3 1/2 and the monkey was cut at 3. The grass was cut free hand and the sentiment I just printed on my computer. I then punched it out with a new punch I got today at AC Moore. I highly recommend it because you can punch three different sizes of a tag at once.
So, I think that about covers it. Thanks for stopping by!

Looks like it's going to be another busy weekend, but I didn't want to leave you without a little something. This is a card I made for a friend whom wife passed away. As you can tell it was very simple.
The base is Close to Cocoa by Stampin Up. The other colors used are Mellow Moss, Almost Amethyst and White by Stampin Up. The stamp is from Michael's look for it in their wooden stamp section. I love this stamp! I colored the image with Mellow Moss and Almost Amethyst markers. The sentiment stamp is from Paper Trey Ink called Mega Mixed Messages. I have used that stamp set many time and highly recommend it to any card maker.
I hope to have time this weekend to make another card that has been on my mind for days now. I can't wait to make it because in my head it is super cute. I just hope it turns out to be! Look for that card next week...
Thanks for stopping by!

Here is a quick card I made using Prima flowers. I love how the card turned out. It started out all different and I didn't like it. So I changed everything up and this is the result.
I used Prima flowers I found on clearance at Michael's. The base is from Paper Trey Ink. The background paper is from Stampin Up. I used a new stamp set I got from Rubbernecker Stamps for the circles, I love how it turned out. I also punched the bottom with my new Fiskers boarder punch. The Sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink as well. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for stopping by!
Sorry this has taken me so long to post. I made this card for a friend that was sick a few weeks ago. I would have posted this sooner, but I have been so busy. Now that it has been so long ago I made it I can't remember the size of the bear of the color of the base. So from now own I will make a list of what I use as I go. I know I used Create a Critter Cartridge for the bear. I know the ribbon is from The Dollar Store. The stamp set I used for the Get Well Soon is from Hobby Lobby. I love this set it has a ton of single words that you can stamp together for a sentiment. I also think the patten paper is from K&Company.
Thanks for stopping by!!

This card is for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge. She wanted us to make a card using Zooballoo Cricut Cartridge and I must admit this is the first time using this cartridge. I have owned it for a while now, but haven't found a reason to use it. I hope you enjoy, now to the card....
The base of the card is Brocade Blue by Stampin Up. The Hippo is cut at 3 3/4. The grass was cut at 5 1/4 using fit to length The clouds were cut at 2 (I think). The stamp used is from a stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps. The flower in her hair (because lets face it she needed something) is random and the brad is from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for stopping by!
I used paper from my scraps to make this card so I do not have a list of the items used. The ears are made with DCWV glitter paper. You may not be able to tell from the photo, but it turned out cute.
As you can tell this is a very short post, but a cute one!
Thanks for stopping by!!

I hope you all have enjoyed your extended weekend as much as I have! I took a trip to the mountains of NC it was beautiful. The weather was wonderful it stayed in the low 80 the whole time. While I was gone I thought it would be fun to take some crafting supplies with me and sneak in a card or two. I have been wanting to participate in one of Emma's challenge since she started hosting them, but I could never find the time. So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try and make something.
The card base is white from Paper Trey Ink. I inked the edges with chalk ink by Colorbox. I cut the bassinet using the New Arrival cartridge at 3. I used a Martha Stewart paper pad that I found at Walmart on clearance. The background paper is also from that pad. I used DCWV glitter paper for the trim pieces for the bassinet. The pink ribbon is random and the green flower trim if from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks Emma for hosting a challenge and for those of you who stopped by.

This card was made for fun. I didn't need to make a card for anyone in fact I don't know what reason I would have to give it to someone. The sentiment was cute and it fit the card perfectly so I went for it. I like making cards for fun with no one in mind to give them to. So here is how it all came together...
The base of the card was made with cardstock from Papertrey Ink called Hibiscus Burst. I love this color such a perfect pink. The pattern paper was from my scraps so I don't know what collection it's from. The daisy border was punched with my Martha Stewart daisy punches. Love them!! The Zebra was cut at three using Create a Critter. I love this cartridge!! Have I told you that before?!? The flower in is from a brad collection I bought at Hobby Lobby. I love that store!! I just wish I had one near me the closest one is and hour and a half away. The bow was made with my bow maker and the ribbon if from Walmart.
The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps and the collection goes well with the Create a Critter cartridge. I like the stamps, but I wish the collection had more card friendly sentiments.
Thanks for stopping by!

So this is my first attempt at a masculine card. What do you think? Honestly, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. As you can tell for the most part my style is cute and girly, but I do have to restrain myself sometimes when I do my nephew's pages. Although I have been known to put a flower or two on their pages ;o). So now to the card...
The base if from Papertrey Ink in brown. The pattern paper is from DCWV stack called The Guy Stack a must have if you need a masculine card every now and then. I cut the cute sign from the Everyday Paperdolls cartridge and used my markers to bring out the cut lines. I then hand wrote "Gone Fishin". I don't normally use my handwriting on a card or scrapbook page because I think I have terrible handwriting, but I thought the sign needed something. Now that I look at it I don't think my handwriting is that bad...right? All I can say is if you are worried about how your handwriting take your time and practice..practice..practice! Now, the fishing pole was cut using the "Just Because" cartridge. It may not be layered right, but hey it looked good to me :o) I added a google eye to the fish and because it look so real I was tempted to write "don't eat me", but I didn't.
I hope you like my card for today, thanks for stopping by!

Here is a card I made for a friend's son who was having surgery. It's always sad when little kids have to have surgery, but he is doing well so that's a blessing!
The card base is from Stampin Up. The rest of the card was made using scraps from Stampin Up paper sorry I don't recall the colors. I purchased some Stampin Up paper from someone on Craigslist and she gave me her scraps so they have come in handy when cutting out images with the Cricut. I'm sure if you are a Stampin Up fan you can figure out the colors :o). The Get Whale Soon was printed on card stock and punched out using the large heart punch from Stampin Up. The bow was tied with my bow maker (love that thing!!) The ribbon is random from the Dollar Tree.
So a quick and simple card made using my FAVORITE cartridge Create a Critter! The images are so cute and a must have for any Cricut lover!

Oh, and the crayons were given to me by a friend. I don't know where she purchased them, but I think she said they were supposed to be lunch bag note cards. I just cut them in half and placed them around the page. With the shape of his picture it was hard to put anything else on the page. So, it worked out great she gave them to me...Thanks Shannon!! :o)
Thanks for stopping by! Now ya'll come back now ya hear!
Today I have two different cards, using the same stamp set and colors. The top picture is my favorite. The stamp set used is from Stampin Up called Kind & Caring Thoughts it is a level three hostess set. I used my new Stampin Up markers that I must say I am in LOVE with, is that possible?!?! I am so glad that I made the investment because they are the best markers for your stamps! I used the following colors for the stamped images on both cards (Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Lovely Lilac, and Old Olive). The base for both cards is Chocolate Chip and the background paper is Pretty in Pink. On the card above I stamped the image on Vanilla cardstock and cut out a Top Note design with my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. I used Prima Roses and brads from Michaels. I also sprayed the card with my homemade glimmer mist using Stampin Up shimmer paint and alcohol.

I used the same paper pack listed on the blog. I did use a different cartridge because I do not own Preserves. The cartridge I used is Hello Kitty and surprisingly I have used that cartridge more that I thought I would. I really like the images they are so cute! The sentiment I used is also different. I used Green Thumb from Papertrey Ink. I highly recommend this stamp set. I have used it with three of my cards and it fits perfectly. I also used Making Memory trim that I purchased at Tuesday Morning.
I hope you like my spin on their idea. I wanted to take the time to let my new followers and my new visitors know that I really appreciate your support! It means the world to me that you took the time to check out my work. :o)

Here is a quick card I made for a friend. The word art says When Life Gives you Lemons Make Lemonade. I added the word pink for pink lemonade because pink lemonade is always better :o)
The base of the card is a standard A2 size. I used Bashful Blue cardstock from Stampin Up as the base. The patten paper is from K&Company. The ribbon is random and I used the Bow-Easy to make the bow. I saw a post a few months ago on a blog I follow (Just A Scrappin) on how to cut one using a Cricut. Well, I decided to just buy one on Ebay Click Here for the listing.
Thanks for visiting!

The sentiment stamp is from Stampin Up and the ribbon border is from Hobby Lobby. The background paper is from a K & Company stack and the card base is from PTI.

For of those of you that know me well, know I love pandas, daisy's, and the color purple. So that is why my blog is called purple daisy crafts. Now you're wondering why I left out panda from my blog name. Well it's simple it would have been too long...lol.
Now to the card. The base is from PTI the color is called Plum Pudding. The background paper is from K & Company sorry I don't remember the name of the stack. I cut the Panda at 3 from the Cricut Cartridge Create a Critter which is now my favorite cart. The images are sooo cute!! You will see more cards from that cart. ;o) I used Stickles in green to accent the flower. I also used Liquid Pearls in white to add a special touch. I love my Liquid Pearls!! I also added a purple fabric brad from Hobby Lobby in the middle of flower. The stamp set is from Cleardollarstamps.com its called Critter Messages and it goes perfect with this cart and I totally recommend it. Thanks for the tip Joy at Everyday Cricut! :o)
I hope you enjoy my card and thanks for stopping by!

This is a card I made a while back for a bridal shower. I had to wait until I gave it to her before posting it, just in case she visits my blog. I hope you enjoy!
So this is my first bridal shower card. What do you think? I think it turned out cute. I didn't know at the time what her colors are going to be so I just went with pink and red you can never go wrong with that.
I cut the cake with my Cricut Cart Tie the Knot. The patten paper is from K & Company. The hearts where punched with a Stampin Up punch. I also used different pattern paper from the same collection to punch out the hearts. The stamp set is Mega Mixed Messages from Papertrey Ink. Best of all is the liquid pearls at the bottom. They are super cool!! I highly recommend them they are liquid and when you tap the card underneath them they spread out to look like pearls. I also used Stickles to add glitter to the cake icing.
I hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by!

This is a card I made for the My Pink Stamper Challenge. The challenge was to make something using the colors pink, black and green. I also had to include my favorite color purple. :o)
For the base I used Stampin Up cardstock Orchid Opulence. The blue card stock is random and I used a punch from Martha Stewart for the edge. The pattern paper is from K & Company. The caterpillar was cut from the Cricut cartridge Walk in my Garden is was cut at 2 in the blackout feature so that I could use a stamp for the face. The face stamp is from a Sizzix face stamp collection. The word Spring was cut at 3 using the Cricut cartridge Stretch your Imagination I used the shadow, layers and the shift spring. The flower was embossed with clear UTEE using two coats. The brad used in the center is from Hobby Lobby. I can't remember the brand name for the sentiment stamp.
I hope you enjoy the card and thanks for stopping by!

So if you are a crafter like me you know what this is, but some of you who visit my site are not, so let me explain.

Hi everyone! This is a quick post of a couple of cards I made. The are simple and easy to make. You will notice that I haven't stamped a sentiment yet because these cards were just for fun. I hope you like them and I will be back with some more crafts coming soon.

I started looking at my pattern paper and I found a set from American Crafts that had a set of four papers using the same colors just different patterns. I started looking at my ideas book and found a idea using four squares of paper as a background with a main square for the center.
Now, here comes the funny part of this card. I had been wanting a stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Green Thumb it had different sayings along with a cute strawberry which is why I wanted the set. I finally ordered the set along with other items not knowing it was going to have the perfect saying for this card. After making the card I needed a sentiment. I didn't like anything I had because after falling in love with this card I knew it needed to be just right. I remembered that stamp set had a garden boot and wondered if it had a saying about shoes. So I looked it up online because my order had not come in and it did have a saying and it fit the card perfectly. So as you can see a card was born and it all started with the trouble making ribbon. At least it only cost a dollar so I can't be too mad. :o)
Thanks for the comments keep them coming!
