Tags and Hearts

Happy Friday!! This week's Totally Papercrafts challenge is a fun one - Tags and Hearts. Ours sponsor this week are Stamp Fairy and The Ribbon Girl, so I've chosen this adorable Stamp Fairy pup, Hugo, for my project:

Isn't he soooo sweet? I just love all of the Hugo images. Join us at Totally Papercrafts this week for a chance to win a prize from one of our two great sponsors. I'm off now to check out the rest of the team's projects. Be sure to stop by and leave them love!

Back to School!

It's back to school here in Missouri for my kids and me. (I work at the local high school.) It's nice to have some company with "Maisey starts school", one of the July releases from DigiStamp Boutique.

Supplies: Maisey starts school (DSB), 24/7 6X6 pad (Simple Stories), paper clip (Paper Studio),
ribbon (Michaels), Copics, letter stickers and cardstock from stash.

Isn't she sweet? The start of the school year has been pretty exhausting, so that's it for me for tonight. I'll be back Friday, though, with a new card and a new challenge from Totally Papercrafts!

Summer Fun!

This week's Totally Papercrafts challenge sure is a timely one for me - Summer Fun. I have started back to work (at a school) this past week, and will be back full time next Wednesday. I am trying to squeeze in as much fun as possible and hang on to summer as long as possible!

My card this week features an adorable digi from Birdie Brown. This was actually my sister's birthday card because she loves dolphins.

Do you like my waves? They were a free .svg file from Bird's Cards. I don't use my Cricut nearly enough, but now I'm inspired to use it more with my cardmaking.

Head on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog and see what gorgeous cards my team mates have made this week. Play along with our challenge for a chance to win some digis from our two great sponsors this week - Bugaboo and Sassy Studios.

Have a great weekend! Get out and enjoy summer while it lasts!
