Friday Reader Spotlight!

Have you been creating lately? Here are a few ladies who have been busy and they are so kind as to share their work with us today.

pigtailpat from the MTC forum made this card with the Gazelle and the Funtime program. I am amazed at how intricate the cut is! This is what she says,
"I did a card today last minute for my SIL's birthday. A very last minute dinner was thrown together for today, so I had to put something together quickly (we normally celebrate her birthday at Easter - but since it is so late this year...She spent several years in Japan and is fluent in Japanese. I have no idea whether I got the characters technically correct - but no matter...

I cut this in funtime as I had to go quickly and the fan was already in .wpc format"

Thank you, Pat, for sharing your beautiful card! 

I love Becki's sense of humor! Look what she made with the Lettering Delights Oiishi and Mustache Mania SVG sets! Becki says,  

"Ever since LD came out with Mustache Mania I have been slapping one on everything including my dogs. But that is another photo :)"

Thanks Becki, for giving me a chuckle. :-)

The next card was made by Jessica George. I thought that Jessica was so smart to make this card from the Lettering Delights Scout 1 doodlebats because I haven't made anything from that set! Jessica says,

"This is the front of a quick card I made for my chemistry lab instructor. It was made using Lettering Delights Doodlebats Scout 1. The Scouts DBs are so versatile!"

Great card, Jessica! Thanks so much for sharing.

Last but not least, I'd like to introduce a brand new blog to you. My friend, Alyssa just started her blog (My Thoughts Exactly blog) and she's excited to show you some things that she has made! 

"Hey everyone! My name is Alyssa, or Alyssaleanne if you see me around the message boards! I am 22 years old and I am currently a full time student getting a degree in Liberal Studies and Mathematics (which is the fancy way of saying I'm studying to be a math teacher), and a part-time custom picture framer. "

"I have been paper crafting for about 8 years but have only recently entered the world of electronic die-cutting machines and SVG files  (about two years). I am primarily a card maker but I love to make other fun paper crafts like bags and boxes."

 "I am very lucky to have a wonderful hubby (of a whopping 6 months now) who supports my crafting addiction. When I'm not paper crafting I am likely spending time with my other favorite hobby, working with Canine Companions for Independence. If you drop by my blog now and then you will likely being seeing more about that! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my cards!"

For her "Easter Egg Hunt: Can you find the Easter egg?" window card, Alyssa used Lettering Delights' Sweet Nothings, Easter Beasties, and Peep SVG sets. The stamp is from the Hoppy Easter set by Pink by Design.

Alyssa's "Celebrate Spring" card was made with the Sweet Nothings Gift Card Holders and Sweetest Nothing SVG set from Lettering Delights and a stamp from the Hoppy Easter set by Pink By Design.

To celebrate the launch of her blog, Alyssa is giving away some goodies including a $10 Lettering Delights gift certificate. Today is the last day to enter her giveaways and you can click on any of the following links to enter:


If you have a card or project that you would like me to feature on the Friday Reader Spotlight, just email it to jin at underacherrytree dot com (please replace the "at" with "@" and  the "dot" with "." ) or just post it to my blog's facebook page. Everyone who has contributed to the month's FRS will have their name entered in a drawing for a $10 Lettering Delights' gift certificate. The winner will be picked by at the end of the month.
