Imke is our host today at Little Red Wagon and she is asking us the question " Flora or Fauna ?"

I chose Flora... I think, unless you count bees as Fauna. 

I was on a roll, so I made two more:


This is where the Bees came from:

Oh, my goodness... these corner embellishments  are like really, really old! I just pulled them off the corner pieces. I also used this die from Simon Says Stamp:

Play the game


  It's Wednesday and over at Little Red Wagon  Kate has chosen a really fun challenge for us. She chose the title " Play The Game" which means our card can be about any game or sport.

I love to play cards. I was really excited when I came across this oldie but goodie stamp from Stampingbella called Gambler-itas!

I took the words from the stamp set and printed them small on a black strip with my computer.

The hardest part about this card was deciding what colors to make their outfits! 

I can't wait to see what you all make this week.

Hugs, Doni

I'm so glad it's MAY!

Today on Little Red Wagon  JanR  is our wonderful hostess and she would like to see 

"Simply Clean & Simple" cards.  I'm so excited...this is my jam!

I used the Memory Box die called Lunette Buterfly:

To get a lot of dimension, I stacked the butterfly 4 deep. The first butterfly I glued to a piece of white cardstock and then colored in the pretty colors. This way it didn't matter if I got color on the white butterfly because I was gluing the next 3 layers on top of it. Last step was to cut away the leftover white cardstock that was sticking out from around the butterfly.

 The Happy Birthday strip was done on my computer.

So clean, so simple, so easy!

Thanks for looking.

'till later,
