World Sleep Day


Hello and happy Friday, warm temps in the forecast for today.  It's World Sleep Day and I am sleepy, still trying to adjust to the time change.   Today's card share uses  sketch inspiration from  Tuesday Morning Sketches #494.  The pattern papers came from the Well Hello paper pad, used an unbranded stitched square die, a Studio G stamp, some Stickles (not sure you can see them in the picture), and some Queen & Co. embellishments.  This is one of those cards where I have mixed feelings about the end result, can't change it now!  Last Friday was my MIL's birthday and I forgot to share her card and today's card is for my co-worker Ella who is celebrating her birthday today!  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #85 over at Cardz TV and Friday Fun Day Friday challenge #273 over at Jo's Scrap Shack.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend!

Wednesday Wanderings


Hello and happy hump day, sunny skies and mild temps in today's forecast.  I really wanted to post yesterday but my life and time right now is really challenging!  I decided to try this after watching Jennifer McGuire's  Stamped Shaker Cards YT video yesterday and was  pleased with the outcome with the exception of my coloring.  I really need to find some time to just practice so until then my coloring is still a work in progress, I was gifted a blending pencil; not sure if I used it correctly.   The stamp and die set that I used was one that I picked up from ACMoore, it is their Love Nicole brand, I cut the leaf with some shimmery paper and used some Recollections glass beads and sequins glitter inside the shaker.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #84 over at Cardz TV and #32 over at Love to Craft.

Thank you for your visit, have a wonderful Wednesday.

Cut it Up #169 - Hello Spring


Hello and happy Friday more cool temps and a forecast for afternoon showers in our area.  Today I am sharing my latest design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  The theme for challenge #169 is Hello Spring and our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe.

I put my card together using the tulips from the tulip shaped card set, if you get the set it comes with shaped cards too but I decided to use my own base.  If you are familiar with The Cutting Cafe you know that most of the files includes layers and card sentiments. I used paper scraps  from my stash, pattern papers are from the MS Essentials Holiday 12x12 paper pad, and I finished the card off by adding a Recollections ladybug sticker. 

Now that you've seen my card I hope you'll visit the Cut it Up challenge blog for more inspiration and decide to create and  share a Spring project using a die cut for a chance to win some cutting files from The Cutting Cafe.  The challenge starts today and ends Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at noon EST

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Just Because


Hello and happy Wednesday, clear skies and cold temps.  Prayers and thoughts for those affected by the recent tornadoes.  I'm running behind with my blog post as I meant to share this card yesterday!  I created this card using sketch inspiration from the Scrapbook & Cards Today Facebook group for one of their challenges.  I used paper from the My Mind's Eye Well Hello 6x6 paper pad, a Spellbinder's label die, a Memory Box wreath die and some Recollections gems.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #84 over at Cardz TV and for the Fun-Day Friday Challenge #271 over at Jo's Scrap Shack.

Thank you for your visit, hope you'll return soon!
