Happy Birthday


Hello and happy Monday, cold again today.  We had a busy weekend, which means I didn't get my chores done or have a lot of time to play!  Today I am sharing a card that I completed over the weekend using sketch inspiration from card sketch #133 from Sketch N Scrap.  I used more papers from the Craft Smith Pumpkin Spice paper pad, a preprinted flag sentiment and DT flower sticker .  I am sharing this card for the Super Scraps Saturday challenge #378 over at Hiding in my Craft Room.

Happy Veteran's Day and thank you to everyone that has served or is currently serving.  Thank you for your visit, I hope you will return soon.

Saturday Musings


Good morning and happy Saturday, I am doing a quick driveby post as I need to get dressed and out the door!  Today's card share is one hot off the press and created using inspiration from Fall to Layout #96 - Take 2 over at  Palm Trees and Pogo Sticks.  I was looking for a die when I came across this scrap of  pattern paper and decided to use for this card, used more scraps for the border and added it to the card base after I sponged it with some distress ink.  I also added some wink-a-stellar to some of the trees but it's not really visible in the picture.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #73 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a great day.

Thinking of You


Hello and happy Friday, more cool weather and rain in today's forecast.  So what's on your agenda for the weekend?  Not sure if we will make the football game this evening if it's raining but we'll go to the movies tomorrow morning.

Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #89, more paper from the Craft Smith Pumpkin Spice pad,  the Spellbinders tag die set, a few gems and a stamped sentiment.  Card done and ready to go postal!

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

Wednesday Wanderings


Hello and happy Wednesday, sunny skies today after lots of rain yesterday.  I am glad the mid-terms are over as I was getting tired of the political ads, texts and speeches!  Today I am sharing a quick drive by post of some post it note holders that I created using inspiration from a video shared by Maymay on YT a few weeks ago; this is not a new project but just one that she did from one of her viewer's suggestions!  I used 110 lb card stock for the base, misc. pattern papers and some CTMH stamps for the sentiments.  The typewriter die is from Sizzix, the stitched squares were cut using unbranded dies, added a few flowers as embellishments and this project was done! 

I hope you have a wonderful visit and that you'll stop by again soon.

Card Sharing


Hello and happy rainy Monday, it is cold too after some nice weekend temps.  Today I am sharing some super simple holiday cards that I created at the request of a card angel she is collecting cards to give to homeless  kids. I created these cards after watching Mary's video where she used one sheet of 6x6 paper to create five cards, I decided to just use her measurements but using mostly scraps from the same paper pad.  The paper that  I used  is from an older Recollections 6x6 pad, I think the name of it is Sugar Plum.  I used different stamps for the sentiments and enamel dots from Paper Studio and Recollections.  I have five more cards to make but I will use paper from a different pad. I'm sharing this post for the Anything Goes challenge #72 over at Cardz TV and  the Love to Craft Challenge Blog #28 Anything Goes.

Thank you for your visit, have a marvelous Monday!

Cut it Up #160 - Clean & Simple


Hello and happy Friday, seasonal temps in the forecast with a chance for some rain in our area today.

Today I am sharing my design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog, the theme this week is Clean and Simple.  Our sponsor for this  challenge is CAS-ual Friday Stamps.   I struggled with this challenge but I hope the final project inspires you to join us by sharing your Clean an d Simple project.  For my card I used pattern paper from the Jillibean Saffron Yellow Pepper Suop 6x6 paper, it has been in my stash forever.  The gems are from Recollections, the stitched circles were cut using an unbranded set of dies, the butterfly and the sentiment are from CAS-uall Friday Stamps.

Now that you've seen my Clean and Simple project, I hope you will head on over to the  Cut it Up Challenge blog for more inspiration, create and share a project for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate from  CAS-ual Friday Stamps.  The challenge starts today and ends on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at noon EST.

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

Thursday Musings


Hello and happy Thursday, mild seasonal temps after a beautiful weather day for the Trick-or -Treaters yesterday.  We had lots of fun participating in a Trunk or Treat at the church, lots of fun in the parking lot and inside the gym! 

Today's card share is another project created after watching another project share from Tracy on YT,  I had to make a few modifications but I am please with the outcome!  The color is a little bit off because of the lighting.  I used more paper from the Love Nicole Time Machine 6x6 paper pad.  I cut the grass, sign post and the ladybug using the Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge,  used a Love Nicole die for the sentiment, added a few other embellishments and the card was done.  I'm sharing this card the Anything Goes challenge #71 over at Cardz TV. and the Anything Goes challenge #393 over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

Thank you for your visit, hope you'll return tomorrow for design team project share.
