Cardz TV Mailbox Smiles DT Challenge #2

Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday and time for another Cardz TV Mailbox Smiles DT Challenge.  I have to say that those who entered our last challenge had some amazing projects!

I needed a birthday card for a dear friend who I've known for many years.  She loves receiving handmade cards because she doesn't craft.  I had made this type of card a few years ago but it got lost and I had never sent it out.  It was a little bent so I measured and recreated it using different papers.  This time I used a Thinlit die from Stampin' Up! to cut out the front panel.  I really hope she likes it.

For the the front and back sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Good Times."  I reach for this set a lot when making birthday cards.  Full of great birthday sentiments.  I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up! to cut out the center of the front panel.  For the confetti on the front, I used the Confetti punch from Stampin' Up!

What do you think?  Would you like to get a card like this in the mail?  Are you ready to take our challenge?  Simply create anything.  It could be a card or a box, or even a treat holder.  The sky is the limit.  You don't even have to use Cardz TV stamps.  You have until noon, EST, Thursday, June 1, 2017.  As always, Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamp sets!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love hearing from you!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Cardz TV Mailbox Smiles DT Challenge # 1

Hello my crafty friends!  Mary has renamed our Design Teams and I am on the Mailbox Smiles DT!  They are both "Anything Goes DT's.

Since Mother's Day is 9 days away, I thought I would get a jump start on cards for Mother's Day.  So here is my project for this challenge.  For the sentiment on the front, I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Mother's Day."  The sentiments on this set are wonderful.  For the sentiment on the back, I used the "Mini Messages."  This is a great set with loads of sentiments.  This is a definite must have.

 For the box/card I used the Stampin' Up! Window Box Framelits Dies and the Bitty Butterfly punch.  Believe it or not, this card does fold flat so it can be mailed.  So what do you think?

Are you ready to join us in the challenge?  Just simply create anything!  It doesn't get any easier than that!  Just add your project to Mary's Blog.  You have until noon EST May 18, 2017.  I know you'll create something fabulous!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
