Flying by to say Thank you

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all doing well. I'm just popping in to share a card I made for the My Creative Time - Pinterest Inspired Challenge & 3 Girl Jam Butterflies and bows Challenge. Hope you have a GREAT day!
 So I came across this pretty card HERE and fell in love with the idea of the words across the butterfly, and then I stumbled on this beauty HERE and just had to use these colors. 
Sorry about this photo, the top photo is a truer version of the card
So I started by cutting out the butterflies using the Cricut Indie Art and stamped them with MCT Script Type Backgrounds Stamp Set
Added some gorgeous ribbon from 3 girl Jam - Mistletoe and finished it off with lots of Tim Holtz ink and some pretty pearls.
Card -4.25" x 5.5"
Paper - My minds Eye & DCWV

Boo! "You've been Booed"

Hi Everyone!
I'm stopping in to share a cute little project. Have you heard of "You've been Booed" well if you have then you know it's a fun little game you play near Halloween. You secretly leave some treats on your neighbors doorstep and leave a little note letting them know they've been booed. It's a FUN game the kids look forward to during the fall. Typically, you pick one or two neighbors and then they pick one or two and so on..... But last year I noticed that a few were missed, so this year I thought I would still do a fun basket or two but I also thought I would make a few more simple treats for some of the older neighbors that love all our kids so much!
 It's a fun little door hanger. I haven't purchased the Art Philosophy cartridge but I did get the idea from the cartridge.
For the Door Hanger I used my gypsy and the Cricut Cartridges Tie the knot, George & Wild Card

The "Boo" is from the Cricut Cartridge Robotz & the ghost is from Mini Monster

 Door Hanger approx. 6" x 3
Paper - DCWV
Stamps - Eyes are from PK-692 Monster Mash Face Assortment 
& the mouth is from PK-532 PK-532 Simple Sallies 1 1/8"
Ink - Tim Holtz
Machine Stitched
Die cuttin divas - Color Challenge (Use yellow, orange, grey and purple)
Little Scrap Pieces - Stitch it (real or faux)

I've had my head in the clouds.....

Hi Everyone!
Wow, summer is just zooming by! I'm trying to enjoy every minute of it. I know my blog has been suffering but I only have 10 more days until my oldest leaves for school :( 
Very soon I'll be using my blog not only for enjoyment but for therapy!
I mentioned I have been playing with my new My Creative Time Stamps so this is just one of the cards I created with the Fly Away With Me Dies. I think these clouds are my favorite of the set.
This card makes me think of summer. Blue skies, puffy white clouds, & pretty green grass!
