Unpacked! And a free seashell SVG collection

Well, the house is sold and we are finally all moved out.  We gave up our keys on Saturday.  It is sad to leave a home, but also a relief to have that step done.   We are set to start on our new home the first week in June- woo hoo!  My craft stuff is mostly unpacked and up in its temporary location and I was able to get a crafting "fix" in- even if it was only to do one card.  I have the urge to buy a new cartridge but I'm trying so hard to be good, so I spent some time making new seashell svgs instead.  Then I made a card to test them.  I actually made them for a scrap page I have in mind, but I don't have the photos printed yet, so this was a good test run.  The stamp is Stampin Up.  SVG (For one week only)  LINK EXPIRED
File can now be purchased at Diecut Designer

Last two Pink Stamper Challenges DONE!

HA! I did all 12, Here is  my scrapbook page, border element from Paper lace, altered in DS, and the journal label is from Storybook.

And my final project is something summer themed, so I made an end of the year gift card holder for a teacher.  The gift card holder was done with Cindy Loo, stamp/punch is Stampin UP.

Pink stamper challeges #2 and #3

Two more done!  I don't think I'll get the last two done, I'll try, but time is running short.  I'm at 10 so far though and that is simply AMAZING.  I hope I win something.

Challenge #2 is use craft paper, I made a card, flower is from paper lace cut at 3/4 inch.  Stamp is from Hero Arts.  Colors look much better in person. 

Challenge #3 is Cancer card, I used butterfly from Home Accents at 4.5 inch and another Hero Arts stamp, corner punch is fiskers.

Three more challenge entries

Time is running out, here are 3 more entries for the pink stamper:
Challenge 6, Something with a tag (flowers from Pooh Cart, tag from Plantin schoolbook, frame from Storybook)

Challenge 9, something with glitter.  Punch is Martha Stuart, flower from Cindy loo (smaller version of the one I made on my Mothers Day card yesterday).

Create a 3D item (I think challenge 5?) 

Vinyl on a tile, verse is from Straight from the nest, altered in DS to fit the tile.

More Challenge projects

Well the day is almost over and I haven't finished all 12 challenges over at The Pink Stamper, but I did get 5 so far.  I posted the first two I did and here are the next three:

Challenge one:  Something cupcake themed, I used DCWV, SU, and Cordinations papers.  I cut the cupcake from Straight from the nest.  The first time I did 2.5 inch, it was too small, so I did 3.5 inch and used the little one inside.

Next, Challenge is something "kid".  I made some little pencle toppers.  All cut at 1.25 inch, flower and butterfly from SFTN, plane is from United we stand, and snake is from Animal kingdom (Andy is really into snakes right now).
And the last item I did was a pet scrappage (Challenge 10)

My Mothers Day card

Happy Mothers Day to all you Mom's.  First I have to share the card my son gave me today because it is absolutely the cutest thing ever.                                                   Here is the front:

And here is what he wrote inside (its in pencil so its hard to read, but I'm posting it anyway)

Melt my heart.

Now for all you moms I have a free svg, it is a layered flower and you can see it done in this card from last month  HERE

Last (sort of) , I have not been crafting because 1: I have been feeling like c*** for the past 2 weeks, and 2: because we sold our house and I've been packing, both have ruined my mojo.   I see The Pink Stamper had a HUGE giveaway challenge going yesterday, 12 challenges and 12 prized, along with a grand prize of an image - which I would love but would never buy for myself.  My goal today is to make up for the past two weeks by doing all 12 challenges (not in order).   My first one was challenge #4, make something Mothers Day themed (good thing to do since I didn't have a card for my mom yet).
So here it is:

For some reason I can't get that photo to turn :(  The doily and inside doily shadow is from Paper lace at 4.75 inch and the flower is from Cindy loo at 4.  The stamps are from SU and the words I just printed out (font is Diggs my heart).

My second card of the day is for challenge 11, do something with pink, green and black.  No cricut on this one, but I did use a cuttlebug and punches, stamp is from Stampin Up.

Hopefully I'll be back with 10 others (thats really pushing it, but I can hope!)  Thanks for looking!
