Mini Houses And Flowers

Good afternoon!  Happy Spring!  
We had a beautiful sunny day, still a bit cooler than I would like, but hopefully we are heading in the right direction! (although we did wake up to snow yesterday.....sigh)

Each year I try to play along with that Pay It Forward Game.  
You post on Face Book and try to have at least 5 people sign up.
I offer up a bit of craftiness and request that anyone who signs up with me, must post the same on their page.  What you send is totally up to you.  It's fun and you spread JOY across the country!

This year I made these little mini wooden house ornament thingies. lol
They were so fun to decorate and VERY affordable.
I made 9, but forgot to take a picture of the red and green ones.  
They have already moved on to their forever homes.

  5. You made nine of the house ornaments? I sure love mine, it reminds me of you when I see it hanging in my craft/guest room. But i have reminders of you in lots of places in my house. All of the little things that you have sent over the years. You have been busy card making too, I see. Cards with flowers are my favorite and these are great. The Sunshine and happiness and sending blessings are wonderful sentiments for the Spring time and go perfectly with flowers.

  6. Wow, you have really been busy!!! Your little houses are so stinkin' cute, and even cuter in real life. I adore mine!!!! And Barb is right, I have your treasures all over the house. I keep forgetting about that PTI Daydreamer Stamp Set. I must pull it out again. Thanks for all the inspiration here, no one can do a collage-look creation like you!!!!

  7. Cute little houses and I love those fantastic cards too. Your work is all so awesome.

  11. Those little mini house ornaments are SOOOOO cute. Your cards (as usual) are beautiful. I can't decide which is my favorite so I'm saving them both.

  12. Hi, Donna! Your little "road to a friend's house" projects are BEAUTIFUL! what a nice way to Pay It Forward - something you do so naturally, just by being your bubbly, kind self. Lovely details in each hanger. I like the way they are very endearing, and yet contemporary and clean, too! Your other cards contain your special "Donna" style all the way. I am in love with the yellow creations - so sunshiny, and the coloring is fan-tabulous - in particular, the bird of paradise is outstanding. Wishing you a great week! hugs, de

  13. Beautiful cards, I love your house thingys, LOL! They so pretty, I think my favorite is the black and white on kraft, gave it a great look!
    Love your background panel to your card and the sentiment on the side like that. Beautiful coloring on the last one, and I like your stamping of the grass/leaves along the bottom, neat overall design!

  14. Love your sweet Mini Houses, Donna! And your flower cards are so colorful and will bring a bunch of happiness to the recipients!

  15. Wow! I love all your projects. Your mini houses are so adorable! Thank you so much for joining us in our challenge at Scrapy Land Challenges this week. Looking forward to seeing you again next challenge.
