Sweet Wishes With A Cherry On Top

Hello friends!! Today is Day 2 of the sneak peeks for the Craftin Desert Divas June release! The sneak peeks are on facebook so if you want to join in it all starts at the CDD facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/CraftinDesertDivas

Today I am sharing a card set using one of yesterday's sneak peeks 
called Sweet Wishes.

I'm finding it very efficient to try to make 2 cards at a time even if they are identical. For me it takes about the same time as just doing one so I might as well get a second card out of it. lol! I am not a fast scrapper or papercrafter. Sometimes I stare at the paper for a couple hours before I even get started. I have to visualize what I'm making and sometimes it takes a while to get that initial vision.

I do love this little snail and you can never have enough birthday cards so I envisioned this little happy duo. I used paper from DCWV and I embossed with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I stamped this little cutie onto the stitched oval die from the CDD Banner Dies set. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers and added the shimmery polka dot bow.

I hope you can join us on facebook for today's sneaks and 
here is a pic of today's svg freebie!!

I will participate in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for hoppin by!

Hope you have a blessed day!


  1. Love the idea of making 2 cards when you create. My hubby has been trying to get me to do that for so long...maybe that will be my future goal! These are just delightful and I am sure that they will make someone's day! That sweet snail is too cute. Have a happy day! xx Donna K

  2. These are just the cutest snails!!! LOVE the cards! :) Have a Crafty Day! :)

  3. Great colors and a super cute image. I am not a fast paper crafter either. I like to make sure everything matches perfectly...and that takes time. Hope you will stop by when you get a chance.

  4. These are absolutely adorable!! The snail is so cute!! I love the design and embossing!! I'm not a fast crafter either...I like to have a vision of what I'm going to make before I hit the craft room or I just stare at the paper, too!! Making two cards at a time saves so much time (and thought!!). Have a great evening :)

  5. Who would think a snail is cute.... ok, now I do. Such a fun card.

    So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

  6. This is absolutely adorable. Very cute image and fun pastel colors really made this a cutie. What a blessing it is for us that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week and hope you join us again this week. I want to share the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 telling us, ” However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him—these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.” Have a blessed weekend…
