So despite my injury and crazy weekend, I was able to get some crafting done this weekend! Of course it meant I stayed up until 3 am on Saturday night! But hey I like it then, nice and peaceful without anyone calling me! So here are the ATCs that I created for the Spring Months ATCs on my Fav MB. It is hosted by ChewysMommy. It is a continuation of her Winter Month’s ATCs. I had to make ATCs for the months of April May and June. The top one is titled June brings…Summer fun! It uses Stampin’ Up’s Crab and Company set. I loved that set forever! I finally broke down and ordered it in my starter kit! On the background I made a mask, sponged in a blue sky, then I took my chalk ink pad and sponged the sand. I didn’t like how that looked so I added a little of Stampin’ Up’s Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. I tore a little “wave” pattern in scratch paper to make it look like the dips in the sand. Then I stamped out Mr crab, and a few of his fishy friends and cut them out and glued them on so they had some depth! The middle one is for May and is titled April showers…bring May flowers. I love that little mouse! It looks so sad! Poor thing! Makes you almost want to invite him into your home…but not quite! The bottom one is for April and is titled Easter Blessings. It uses a stamp that I have had in my collection. I used the Stampin’ Up’s Scalloped edge punch. I added the little sentiment underneath. Simple but cute! I enjoy making ATCs! So quick and easy!
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
