Sunday Musings


Hello and happy Sunday, mild temps now but it is going to be really cold later.  I am doing a quick drive by post as I need to get dressed for church.  Today's card share is another birthday card using sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches #486 and pattern papers from the My Mind's Eye Happy Day 6x6 paper pad.   I finished the card with some stamping, a little coloring, some enamel dots, a Spellbinders oval die and an unbranded stitched oval die.  I'm sharing this card for the pastel color week challenge #471 over at Just us Girls.

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

Thinking of You


Hello Friday, a forecast for the possibility of  another wintry mix within the next few days.  Today's card share is one created using this month's card sketch challenge over at  Stick it Down.  I used more scraps of paper from the My Mind's Eye Paris & Co 6x6 paper pad, just a few more projects using these papers and this pad will be done! I also used a Pink & Main stitched rectangle, a Paper Studio stamp and some enamel dots to finish off this card.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #81 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, hope you will come back soon!  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Let's Celebrate


Hello and happy Thursday, seasonal temps and some cloudiness in our area this morning.  I'm back today with a quick driveby post as I had already scheduled my post through tomorrow!  There are just so many January birthdays within my circle and I'm on a personal challenge to try to conquer my mounting scrap paper stash!  I used sketch inspiration from Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge #390,  I received the papers as part of a challenge prize pack last year and it resurfaced while I was doing some organizing so I'm not sure which company sells the paper.  My plan is to finish it off this weekend.  I cut the tag using an unbranded die and the sentiment using one of the Spellbinders Die D Lites; finished the card by adding some sequins and Glimmer Mist.  I'm sharing this card for the Die Cuttin' Divas birthday challenge #403.

Take care and hurry back!

Happy Birthday Kayla


Hello and happy Wednesday, seasonal temps with the kids back in school as of yesterday!  Today I'm sharing a simple craft project that I put together for one of my daughter's friends that recently celebrated her birthday.  When shopping for her gift I had picked up a journal, an inspirational daily reading book and a pen but my daughter wanted include something a little more personal.  I had given my daughter one a few years ago and she really liked it so she wanted me to do one for her friend.  I  had everything in my stash with the exception of the letter K which came from ACMoore.  I used the Love You a  Latte cricut cartridge to cut the little frappe cup which is one of her favorite Starbucks drink. I'm sharing this project for the Anything Goes challenge #80 over at Cardz TV and the challenge #30 over at the Love to Craft Challenge Blog.

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

Just Because


Hello and happy Monday, another inclement weather day for the kids in our area.  I am taking a break from birthday cards today as  I am still trying to use my stash of paper scraps; I just can't seem to toss leftover pieces of paper.  Today's card uses sketch inspiration from card sketch #137 over at Sketch N Scrap.  The paper used came from the My Mind's Eye Fancy That 6x6 paper pad, I used unbranded dies for the bow and the stitched circle, added a stamped sentiment and a few Queen & Co Jellies and this card is ready to go postal.

Thank you for your visit,  have a wonderful week and stay safe if you have to go out.

Saturday Musings


Hello and happy cold Saturday, we are currently on snow watch!    I am planning a very lazy day, which I might regret when Monday rolls around.  Today I am sharing another birthday card where I used sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It's the beginning of the year and as I continue to try to de-clutter and use my scraps,  I created this card using only paper scraps and an unused diecut.  I know that the pattern papers are ffrom My Mind's Eye but I don't know which 6x6 pad!  Another card done and ready to go postal to one of my high school besties!

Thank you for visit, I hope you will return again soon.

Cut it Up #165 - How's the Weather


Hello and happy Friday, today's project share is my latest design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  The theme for challenge #165 is How's the Weather and our sponsor is Avery Elle.

I struggled with coming up with a project for this challenge as our weather in this area has been somewhat unseasonable at  times.  So I decided to just go with a winter theme since it is winter and the forecast calls for the possibility of some snow flurries this weekend!  The snowflake pattern paper is from a Recollections pack from several years ago, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the window and my Cricut to cut the snowflakes.  The sentiment came from the Cardz TV Snow Day stamp set, added a few crystal Stickles to the frame and this card was done!  I'm sharing this card for the Winter Blues challenge #385 over at Shopping Our Stash.

Now that you've seen my project I hope you will head over to the Cut it Up challenge blog for more inspiration and decided to share your How's the Weather project for a chance to win a gift certificate from our sponsor.   The challenge starts today and ends on Wednesday, January 23 at noon (EST).

Thank you for your visit, have a wonderful weekend.

Enjoy Your Special Day


Hello happy cold and windy Thursday, did my shopping last night in preparation for the forecast for snow this weekend.  Today I am doing a super quick driveby post to share another birthday card, I used sketch inspiration from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  The papers came from the My Mind's Eye Honey Cake 6x6 paper pad, the stitched oval was cut using an unbranded die and the stamp is from a  Bo Bunny sentiments set.  I heat embossed the sentiment and added it to the card with some foam adhesive. I  have mixed feelings about this card, another one where I only using pattern paper:  I didn't even add any embellishments.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #80 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll come back tomorrow for my latest design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  Take care and have a great weekend.

O Happy Day


Hello and happy Wednesday, seasonal temps after a mild weather day yesterday.  Today I am sharing my first male card for 2019; sketch inspiration for this card came from Mojo Monday #506.  The pattern  paper came from the My Mind's Eye Hey Mister 6x6 pad and the foil paper used for the title and scallop edge was a leftover piece from another project.  I cut the title using the Beyond Birthdays Cricut cartridge and one of the Crafter's Companion  Edge Die'sire create-a-card dies for the scallop;  added a few black enamel dots to finish the card. I'm sharing this card for the Glitter or Foil challenge #402 over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return again soon.

Birthday Card Frenzy



Hello and happy Sunday, I meant to share yesterday butt as life would have it I didn't have time.  Today's project share is a birthday card created using sketch inspiration from Atlantic Hearts sketch #297.  I used paper from the My Mind's Eye Fancy That  6x6 paper pad, some Recollections foil paper, a Hampton Arts Stamp and Cut set for the sentiment and a gem cut using the Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge.  This is one of those cards where I had a hard time getting a good picture, too much foil paper.    I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #80 over at Cardz TV.  I need about ten cards this month so I really need to get busy!

Thank you for your visit and I hope you will return soon.

First Thursday


Hello and happy first Thursday, it's raining with seasonal temps here in our area.  So much has been going on that I haven't really had time to create or share on my blog this year.  Today I am sharing a super quick card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Fab Friday #153 and I am racing to get it posted and shared on the blog as I am coming in under the wire.  I used papers from the WeR Memory Keepers Typecast paper pad that I was gifted a few years ago.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Bo Bunny Expressions set that I picked up from TM.  I used an unbranded die to cut the stitched circle and added it to the card with some foam adhesive.  Added a few enamel dots and this encouragement card is ready to go!  I am sharing this card for the January - Anything Goes challenge #30 over at Love to Craft.

Thank you for your visit, I hope your new year is off to a great start and that you'll come back again soon.
