Birthday card - Artful Delight

Well my son has been at diabetes camp for 1.5 days now, and it's so weird.. my home is soo quiet. Every once in a while, I just blurt out some funny noises just to break up the silence and now my dog Cooper thinks I've gone bonkers :) My BIG plan was to create some projects, but yesterday I wasn't feeling so crafty. Hopefully today I'll capture that mojo and get crankin on some layouts or cards. I recently bought the Hoot'n'Holler Cricut Lite cartridge and I've been wanting to play with it - it's sooo cute!
And I'm also waiting on a shipment from Paper Smooches :) They have the cutest stamps!  Here are the 2 sets I ordered..
I LOVE the fun font on those sentiments! And I thought the "Surf & Turf" stamps would look really cute on cards using Echo Park's Splash. Do you have any Paper Smooches stamps? They have a super cute pets set that I want and also I love their holiday/winter sets! I'll be making another purchase soon :) You can find all the great PS sets here.

I've been DROOLING over many of the new CHA Summer releases the past few days! Sooo many fabulous collections that I just gotta have!! A few by American Crafts, Crate Paper, Imaginisce, Echo Park, Bo Bunny, My Mind's Eye and more! ... Ohhhh I need to play the Lotto!

Speaking of MME, last week I created a couple cards using my Artful Delight July kit. Here is one of them :)

I really like this design.. I've used it before on some holiday cards and I thought it would also look cute for a birthday card. Actually I think anything is cute that includes the MME Lime Twist collection. That line is just so fun and colorful... definitely one of my top favorite collections for this spring/summer. You can find much of the Lime Twist collection in Artful Delight's July kit :)

Hopefully today will be a good day for me to get crafty. I hope I hope! :) If so, I'll be sure to share it with you tomorrow along with the other card I made using this AD July kit.

Thanks for visiting! :)


  1. LOL at your funny noises, Abby!! :) My youngest took the last of his stuff up north last night. Now my house is empty too! The dog already knows I'm not right though. HA!!! ;) Looking forward to seeing what you do with those adorable paper smooches stamps! I've been eyeing them too. Your MME card is beautiful! :)

  2. Such a cool card sweetie...have fun playing with your new cart and the stamps looks fabulous! :) Hugs x

  3. Love the card! OMG I have been wanting to get that cartridge for Isabella's birthday party (owls) but already have Create a Critter.. but loved the sentiments on this one! Have fun with it!
