Flower Blossom Magnets

I made these awesome flower magnets using Flower Blossoms 1 from RSMobleys Designs. They turned out so super cute. Some of them are flocked, I also used some Viva Decor Paper Pens, Stickles, atyou Spica glitter pens, and American Crafts glitter markers. I used brads in the center of most of them. Some have pop dots to add dimension to the layers. I even made one into a layered cake with pop dots between the layers but it got destroyed before I could take a picture so I will reproduce it and post in a few days.

I am entering them into So Saturday Challenge #8 at Card Creations & More by C.

Paper Playtime Challenge #43

Our challenge for this month is WEATHER. Use rain or rainbows, sunshine or clouds, anything that has to do with the weather.
You will have until midnight CST Saturday, April 23rd.

Head over to Paper Playtime and enter your project.

Our sponsor this week is Joy's Life

I made a S-fold card with a beautiful rainbow and pot of gold from RSMobleys Designs. The flowers on the front and back are from QuicKutz Nesting Flowers cookie cutter dies. I used the cutouts from the flowers and little raindrops. The bird and birdhouse is also a QuicKutz die. I used the Cuttlebug Build-a-Flower dies/embossing folder combo for the middle flower on metal from Cri-Kits. The sentiment is from Pink by Designs "Spring has Sprung" set.

This card makes me long for April Showers. I love taking walks in the rain and if I could carry a tune I would probably be singing but nobody wants to endure that. LOL

Bryce's LunchBox Card

I made this card for Bryce's lunchbox today using the Cottage Cutz die and Peachy Keen Stamps Tear Bear combo set. He turned out so so cute and I will definately be making more for my bear cubs. My mom reads Bryce his cards each day and she said his reaction was not what was expected. He was so disappointed and said "I wanted to show it to all my friends but now they will think I'm in love!" I sign his cards with "Love Oma" so mom told him that none of his friends will say anything because they all love their Oma's too.
