I love dragonflies...So very much

Get the blog title? LOL a play on the stamp set names ... Anyways, today I've put together an ultra fast card with the help of the large word stamp and gorgeous DSP called "Serene Scenery"...

Oh and the dragonflies were die-cut from the DSP called "Urban Underground". I love those little dots on them...

Thailand Achievers Blog Hop - Last call for Sale-a-Bration

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for March 2017. This month our theme is the "Last call for Sale-a-Bration". Did you know that Sale-a-Bration finishes at the end of THIS MONTH??? Soooo, now is the time to make sure you've collected all the wonderful Sale-a-Bration products for FREE that won't be available after this month.

Here is my contribution for today's blog hop:

And you might be able to tell... I've used THREE Sale-a-Bration items here ;-) You can find all the supplies on the very bottom of this post.

Quick Cards thanks to Paper Pumpkin

When I get in a bind and need more cards to put in my order bags, I often turn to my stash of Paper Pumpkin boxes... This time I used components from the February kit called "Many Happy Birthdays". Since I didn't need gift card holders I simply used the patterned papers and made regular cards... Here are a few of the variations:

Some of you know that I've rediscovered my love for country dancing. And with that in mind I made a birthday card for a special person... he's got so much patience and teaches us cool moves... Happy Birthday Rob H.!

Stylish Stems

So today I had some left over pieces from working on my cards for this month's Stamp-a-Stack... and I've put them to use right away!

This is a very simply card. BUT it shows that we don't have to over-complicate things and just have fun while crafting... AND it looks very elegant on top...
