Smiles Across the Miles - Creative Card Chicks

 Wow! I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted here on my blog. The days just slip away. I hope you are all staying safe from the bad weather creeping across the country. Texas has been slammed with heavy rain, tornadoes, and flooding in a lot of places. Thankfully, we have just been getting some heavy rain here in H Town. 

I have been crafting some during the last month or so, but mostly working on some mini albums. I really love some of the Graphic 45 papers and have been watching a lot of YouTube videos using them. I have also found Club Scrap. They have some fabulous card layouts. A new company that I have recently come across is Stamperia. I just had to buy their Orchids and Cats collection and I'm currently working on a album using this collection. 

Back to card making. Today I do have a card to share with you. This is for the April card kit for Creative Card Chicks on Splitcoast Stampers.  Each month the hostess will send out a card kit or give us a challenge of some sort to make with our own stash. Then we all make at least one card which we post to the Forum between the 21st and 23rd of each month. Yes, I'm late posting, but to my defense I didn't receive the kit until late into the month. Weather and the P.O. have not been helpful.  This kit is from Roxie. She sent us the stamp set to use and then we could just use all our own stuff. I found some old October Afternoon paper in my stash. I don't think they are still in business. The last blog post was in 2016. Anyway, I thought this paper would be a good fit for the image.

The cloud dies are from a different set I had in my stash. I think they did very well with the balloon image and the sentiment. I would love to go to a balloon launch some time. I see them on TV and in photographs and they always look so amazing.

Thank you Roxie for the cute stamp set.


  1. Maggie, this is a fun design with the clouds on the chevron strip. Cute card!

  2. Love this Maggie - the paper really is stunning, and complements the balloon beautifully. A fun, colourful card!!

  3. It definitely all goes together perfectly! Bright colors for the paper and balloon, and the sentiment is floating right along with it. You made me go look up Stamperia. That's all I need -- more paper. No, I didn't buy, but it was tempting! I know you must be having great fun with your mini- albums. They do come out so cute with all the pretty papers. I hope the worst of the weather continues to avoid you. I've seen a lot of flooding in your area on the news.


Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comments. I very much appreciate your time to do so. Have a fabulous day! Hugs!
