Life is Good!

Life is great, isn't it?

After I pretty much exhausted the supplies of my Simon Says Stamp Card Kits for January and February I went on to March.  Oh, how I love the colors of this kit.  
Here is what the kit looks like:

It is filled with a great stamp set (LOVE IT!) as well as some great Lawn Fawn papers and fun things! Unfortunately the kit is sold out although there are other kits from other months still available.  Follow that?

I've already made a few cards....Here and Here with it. 

I don't often participate in challenges because generally I am too lazy for all that linking up but I decided to participate in the Mojo Monday 294 challenge HERE.  Here is the challenge sketch:

 And here is my take on the challenge sketch:

My approach was pretty straight forward but I just had to add something to the top of the card.  You know how it is...sometimes things JUST NEED SOMETHING!

Oh, heck....I'm going to add another card here I made with the same kit.  This is a nearly exact copy of a card Vicky of Clips -n- Cuts made a little while ago.  If you haven't watched her video HERE you might want to take a peek.  She whipped out the pinwheel in no time.  I tried to follow her lead but I ended up wrestling with my pinwheel, tearing paper, making holes and had to cover up many mistakes.  She made it look so easy.  I was not saying nice things while I was making this!   LOL!  I am just amazed at how simple Vicky makes a task look!  HAHA!

The card turned out cute...but my oh my....I felt like a contortionist trying to get that little pinwheel just right.  Thank God for Gluedots (lots of 'em) and gems that are big enough to cover up holes in paper that shouldn't be there! :)  Oh...and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.


But no matter is always fun to create, isn't it?

Happy Crafting!


  1. I forgot if you're using any of the card kits on your PL pages. They totally go together! I love the colors in this kit, too!

  2. The first card is so bright, cheerful and charming!!! Very pretty!! And the second one is my favorite!!! How cute is that pinwheel?!!! LOVE how you arranged the papers to keep it simple and give way for the pinwheel to shine!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
