Getting Crafty with Glue Dots!

Hi everyone! It's so nice to start getting back into my routine. Life spiraled out of control for a month but things are finally settling down a bit, not all the way, but its getting better. I saw the back specialist today and I will be getting another set of Steroid Epidural shots in my back so I can function again. I went to the ER a couple of weeks ago in the ambulance because of my back and I was home alone but all is well now and we are working on finding the solution to the pain because the problem is not really fixable. But the last time I had the shot it helped me tremendously so I am so ready for another one. 

Also I will be gone next weekend for a few days on a secret trip to meet up with a company for some exciting crafty stuff coming up for me! I cant wait to share!! (: LOTS MORE great and exciting things happening soon!!

Today I would like to share with you my projects from March for Glue Dots. I didn't get a chance to share with you after my Dad had the heart attack. I have been spending time with him and family. Plus the issues with me. And also my daughter having some breathing issues. But we are doing much better and getting things fixed. But prayers would be MUCH appreciated :)

My first project I would have LOVED to share with you last month since its an EASTER project but I still just have to share with you.

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how this card turned out!!! The colors are just my favorite!! I used lots of GLUE DOTS on this project: Pop Up Glue Dots and Craft Glue Dots. They come in so handy for me, I love the dots on the rolls. The stamp set is illustrated by ME :) for The Crafts Meow - its called "Owl See You in the Spring". This super cute paper is by Doodlebug Designs called "Hello Spring". I just love Doodlebug papers. The owl in the egg is colored with Copic markers. And the Hexagons are cut with Lifestyle Crafts dies.

Card Instructions:
1. Make card from cardstock, 4.25" x 5.5".
2. Die cut hexagon shapes with patterned paper of your choosing.
3. Adhere shapes with Glue Dots Pop Up dots and Craft dots.
4. Color and cut out owl bunny and egg. Adhere with Pop Up Dots.
5. Use gel pen and highlight around shapes.
6. Stamp sentiment and enjoy!
