March Is Crafting Month

Did you know that the month of March is celebrated as Crafting Month? Well, I know that this is the later part of the month, but I did want to share some projects that I made for this special event.
Card creations are something that you often see on my blog and today is no different. So here is my card for today. It was actually made for the challenges at Hero Arts, Simon Says, and Lily Pad. I am also submitting my other project as well.

The colours look more like this second pic than the first. I tried to tone down the brightness of the first picture, but no such luck. Sorry about that!

Now this next project was a joy to make! I will be sharing a Tutorial soon on how you can make this same project, to share as a gift, for those special people in your life. I made this set for my sister Janice and I am hoping that she will like it! Now I will admit that it did take me some time to get it completed. First time I tried it, was a while ago and I made some colouring mistakes, but I wasn't giving up that easily. So here is the finish product.

I took at plain white note pad and stamped this Hero Arts flower image on it, coloured and added distress ink all around. And can you remember the Fimo Flower I made using the same Hero Arts stamp, will I used the same flower to embellish my gift once it was wrapped. I love how this set turned out and will be doing it again.

Now be sure to check out the button on my sidebar regarding a Birthday celebration that is coming up soon for Lily Pad. I can't wait to see what all the fun will be and of course there must be prizes to win right?! Lol. Hope your all doing well and that you have enjoyed your visit today.

That Fimo flower is such an amazing way to spice up your wrap - love the big blue bow, and OMG look at the colouring on the note block! I love that the whole ensemble goes together without being super matchy :)
