Happy Happy Happy


Hello and happy Sunday, doing a quick  post as I need to get some things done before church. Yesterday, I was out and about so I am hoping for more down time today!  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using inspiration from the August sketch challenge #381 over at Die Cuttin' Divas.  I used more paper from the Happier paper pad, just one more card and this pad is done!   I used a Recollections die for the unicorn but wasn't happy with the embossing so I used the back instead, this was my first time using this die so I might try a different sandwich the next time.  I used an unbranded die for the squares, a Cardz TV stamp for the sentiment and some K&Co stickers.  It is hard to see but I did add some Wink of Stella to the unicorn.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #60 over at Cardz TV and the Super Scraps challenge #365 over at  Hiding in my Craft Room.

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

Thinking of You


Hello and happy Saturday, it seems like forever since I blogged.  Today I am sharing a card that I created using sketch inspiration from card sketch #127 from Sketch N Scrap.  The paper scraps came from the My Mind's Eye Happier 6x6 paper pad which is almost empty!   I used the Sizzix Thinlit Wildflower die set for the flower(added dimension by stacking 6 cuts of the die), an unbranded die for the scallop circles edge, the sentiment stamp and pearls are from Recollections.  This is one of those cards that look better in person!  I'm sharing this card for the August Technique challenge over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and the Anything Goes challenge #59 over at Cardz TV.

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

Cut it Up #154 - Favorite Color


Hello and happy Friday, welcome to the weekend!

Today I am sharing my design team project for your favorite color challenge over at  the Cut it Up challenge blog and our sponsor for this challenge is Inkon3.  One of my favorite colors is red so when I saw this  door card on their website I knew I wanted to use it.  The card come together rather quickly, I just used some of my paper scraps to cut the card with my cameo, assembled it,  added a few gems, stamped a sentiment and my card was done!  This is one of their free files and it also includes the envelope.   I hope you'll head on over to the Cut it Up challenge blog for more inspiration and the opportunity to win some crafty goodness from our sponsor.  The challenge starts today and ends on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 noon  (est).

Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return soon.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Happy Birthday Felisa


Hello and happy Thursday, the sun is peeking out but there is a slight chance of more rain this afternoon.  Today I am sharing the card that I created for one of my scrappin'  besties for her birthday.  Shame on me for not making sure she received it in time for her birthday but I know she understands!  When putting this card together I used sketch inspiration from sketch #125 from Sketch N Scrap, paper from the Ki Memories Growing Garden 6x6 paper pad, a flower from a Pebbles sticker pack and a few Studio G tiny gems.  I'm sharing this card for the August challenge over at Always Happy Birthday.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a terrific Thursday.

Cut it Up #153 - Christmas in July


Hello ad happy Friday, it's the weekend and my family and I are headed to North Carolina for a family reunion.  Prayers for traveling mercies and good weather so we will be able to enjoy some outside activities too.

Today I am sharing my design team project for our Christmas in July challenge over at Cut it Up and our sponsor is My Scrap Chick.   I used the cup of tea cut file from our sponsor and some very old double sided paper that I received as a contest winner many years ago.  I think it may be from a Cosmo Cricket, I cut the snowflake with some shimmery paper which is hard to see in the picture!  I cut the file with my Silhouette cameo,  inked the edges lightly, assembled it, added a gem and a teabag and this project was done.  I hope this little project inspires you to head over to the Cut it Up challenge blog to see what the other designers shared and that you will decide to participate in our Christmas in July challenge for a chance to win some goodies from My Scrap Chick!  The challenge starts today and end on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 at noon EST.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return again soon.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend!
