Shirley,Goodness and Mercy Chicken Magnets

Hello my friends!

I just had to share these adorable chicken refrigerator magnets with you today.
They come from My Scrap Chick.
The link is at the bottom of this post.

She's having a really BIG SALE right now, until May 1st I believe.
Don't miss out!!! 

The first chick up is this darling pink striped chick with an umbrella in her hand.
This is a piecing pattern that you glue on each piece.
I made a silhouette in the ecal program and cut one in black and two in white card stock so it would
be strong and sturdy. I glued  all the pieced to the black card stock. I inked and added gems then glued a strip of magnet to the back. Great for your refrigerator, metal cabinet or anything metal.
You can also put them in a scrapbook or on a card.

This sweet little darling is just singing in the rain. LOL
Yes, we did have one day of rain here in Apple Valley, but it only dropped a little rain. It seems 
that the rain gets blown to the mountains near me and almost always passes over quickly.

This little sweetie pie was fun and easy to make with her basket of eggs.

She's the shopping chick with her cute little hat and pretty sunflower.
Adorable magnets for any fridge.
Every home should have these sweet chicks on their fridge/
Great gifts!
Just in time for Spring!


You can get the cutting files below at My Scrap Chicks.
They are on sale until May.

That's it for another day my friends.
I hope that I've inspired you once again.

Have a wonderful week!

Beautiful Spring Butterfly Cutout Easel Card

Hi my crafty friends!
It's time for Butterflies and warm weather here in Apple Valley.
Would you believe I saw a beautiful Monarch butterfly flying and swirling around my 
car while I was at a stop. It was so colorful and pretty.

Today I made this very pretty and delicate Butterfly Easel card from white
and colored card stock.  Using my Sizzix Eclips machine it cut like butter.
This was a really quick and easy card to make.
I love the way it turned out.
The Butterfly Easel card cutting file is from Bird.

This is how beautiful the card looks when it's standing..
 I also used a flower border from Bird.
This is not the same one I used but it's very pretty and would work.

This is how the card looks closed. It fits nicely into an envelope for mailing
A lovely card for almost any occasion. 

That's it for another day, my friends.
I hope that I've inspired you today.
Have a wonderful Friday!

Fluffy Easter Bunny Magnet and Stained Glass Butterfly Magnet

Hello my dear friends!
Just hopping in to share these adorable refrigerator magnets that I made.

So fun to make and would look great on a fridge, package or card. 

You can get the Fluffy Bunny and Bear over at My Scrap chicks

She has so many darling creations on her site.

This was the most delightful Butterfly magnet that I've made. And, the best part is that it's Not
tiny pieces that you have to glue on. Nope, it has 6  layers that you cut out in different colors, each one
with more cut out. Just glue each butterfly in order and your done. The last two layers
take a little more time putting the glue on but the end result is magnificent. I put a strip
of magnet to the back so I can put it on my fridge. Great gift for someone special on your list.

Here's the closeup and you can see that the last purple layer takes a little longer to put your glue on. I 
thought of putting it in my sticker maker  but the glue would be in the open holes.It's like therapy and I took my time putting the glue around each curve and finally it was ready to go. I made 5 and I will be making another 5 in different colors. 
You can create all different colors and combinations. 
Simply beautiful! 

This Beautiful Stained Glass Butterfly was from and it was a Free file last week but
now you can get it for only 50 cents. Get on their mailing list and you will receive Free cutting files.
I Love this file and it cuts like butter on my Sizzix Eclips machine.

That's it for another day my friends. I hope that I've inspired you once again.

Have a great week!
