Pastels and Daughter's Birthday

Happy Diva Tuesday!

Today brings another challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas and what better way to celebrate than with a new project.

Our challenge this week is...
Use Pastels

Here is my project...
I thought this mouse from Live Simply was adorable. He reminds me of a little critter scurrying thru the night exploring everything possible. He just happens to find a dainty flower.

K&Company paper
black and white cardstock
Live Simply cartridge ~ mouse cut at 3" and Explore cut at 3/4"
crinkle ribbon from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces
purple brads
purple gem
beaded stick pin (created by me)

This Week's Sponsor...
My Creative Time
Thanks Emma!

I also have to share my daughter's birthday card I made and her birthday cake. I must warn you ahead of time she LOVES the color orange. It may be just a phase, but...

I added her name to the tag.

One of her favorite golfers is Ricki Fowler and the other is Bubba Watson. Ricki wears orange quite often, so that is how she decided orange is her favorite. : )

Looking forward to seeing all those great projects this week. So many possibilities and so little time!

Stay Creative,


  1. Cute mouse, and I love the color of crinkle ribbon you added with the pin. Great touch! I also love the birthday card you made for your daughter! I'm a big golfer and I love seeing girls that love the game. I bet she loved seeing one of her favorites win the Masters last weekend! :)

  2. Awesome Creations Georgiana. TFS.


  3. So cute- I love the patchwork quilt look of the background! :)Amy

  4. What's not to love about orange it's the team color of the Syracuse Orangemen and Orangewomen my husband's alma mater I thinks she has superb taste! ha ha!

  8. Happy, happy birthday to your daughter!! I hope she had a wonderful day!! Both cards are so awesome, Georgiana!! I love the sweet mouse :)

    Regarding your question about Spellbinders...I have become completely addicted to them!! I really like the Labels because there are so many uses for them. I have purchased quite a few through JoAnn online. When they are at 40% plus free shipping, I'm in Heaven!! They have a pretty good selection.

    I am lucky in that I have a Joann, Hobby Lobby and Michaels in my town and they all send out 40% coupons weekly. The selection isn't the greatest, but I get most of my label dies from those stores. For the really cool dies, like Parisian Accents or Lacy Doily Motif, I order through Ben Franklin Crafts online ( They have a huge, huge selection and the prices are almost 40% off. They have free shipping on orders over $50, too.

    If you have a Joann near you, definitely sign up for their mailing list if you haven't. They send out extra 25% off everything coupons every so often. The last two times I got the coupon, Spellbinders were 40% so I got them at 65% off!! What a bargain!! I stocked up :)

    Sorry to have rambled, but I hope this helps!! Please, please let me know if you have any questions!!
