Pinterest Inspired Card and Sunshine Article

Just wanted to share a quick post of a couple recent items. Last week one of my cards was shared on the Jillibean Soup blog. It was actually a thank you card I made for Jill. Here it is:
Materials used: Jillibean Soup/kraft card base, Apple Cheddar/Milk, Homemade 6 Bean/Red Beans, Black-eyed Peas & Navy Beans; Jillibean Soup/Wood flags-Thank you; Jillibean Soup-Wood Buttons/Wood Flower; green embroidery floss & chestnut cats eye/brown inked edges
The card was inspired by a card I spotted on Pinterest by Roree Rumph, you can see her original here:

Easter Greetings and Moxie Challenge

Happy Easter weekend all! Hope you are enjoying some down time with your families like we did today. I just wanted to share some Easter cards and a spring masking article over at So first of all a big Moxie Challenge is happening over at the Moxie Fab Blog it is to create "Do it Yourself" embellishments. So I submit my Easter cards made out of Jillibean Soup papers from the Homemade 6 Bean line and the Southern Chicken Dumpling line. I made my own crosses from the Apple Cheddar/Milk paper and the flowers were cut on my Cricut using the Kate's Alphabet cartridge. Then I added some egg shaped doilies I found at the dollar store and some ink, vintage buttons and rhinestones.

I also have an article up at here, it is on Masking. Here is the layout I made using the 3 different ways to mask.
and here are some close-ups:

Happy Easter Everyone!
