If It's Groovy Birthday Bloghop!

Hearty welcome to If It's Groovy Birthday Bloghop! If you are hopping along you should have arrived here from Jean's blog.

I picked the letter "A", since it is the first letter of my son's name. I have always wanted to make a banner for my son's playroom.

I got the plain white letters from Joann's and used Mod Podge to glue the pattern paper onto them. I did two layers of Mod Podge.The pattern paper is by DCWV and it is called Animal Crackers. I love this collection!. I added a few chipboard hearts on the letter to decorate ( which my husband said is girly!). My son loves it and he even counted the hearts on them! Well, that's what matters the most! Hopefully, soon he will learn how to spell his name!

not go back and share some love with the Groovy Chicks so we know what you thought of our one day hop. Here is a list of all the designers!

Thanks for looking! Hope you had a fun hop!

Another Valentine's Day Card.

I used Here comes the Sun and Hearts a Plenty by Market Street Stamps on this card. I love the way it turned out! I love the speckled look on here comes the sun. I think it makes it very interesting!

The inside of the card reads..."You are my Sunshine! I love you!". LOL now what to do with all these cards!!

Thanks for visiting me today!

MSS Paint the Town Color Challenge for January!

I used a bit of burlap and hearts plenty background stamps by Market Street Stamps on this card. I cut out the word love on pazzles. Stamped a bit of burlap on it. I made 3/4 inch squares and rounded the corner on pazzles and stamped bit of burlap on that as well.

I love these colors together! So cheerful:-)I doodled with my white uniball pen on the little squares and finished it with some twine. This card is based on a pretty old sketch by Jeanette Lynton. I hope you like it and thanks for visiting me today!

Gate Crashing!

I had fun creating this one for IIG. I created a layout where the amount of positive space is almost equal to the amount of negative space. I used acrylic paint for the background. I trimmed my photos in different sizes to give the layout some interesting lines. Then glued my pictures on the painted area, randomly spaced. Then I placed a piece of yellow card stock on both sides of the pictures to hold it all together. I placed my title and the journaled on the yellow cardstock and that's it! Hope you like what I did!
