Wishing You Happiness!

Hi there! I have a card to share today for PTI's Make It Monday challenge. This one took some thinking, but I'm happy with the results!

I knew I wanted to use one of the hearts from the Limitless Layers set for the die cut opening. When looking through my  sets to fill it, I came across my Bells and Boughs stamps and knew the bows would be perfect! I die cut the large version of it for my focal. Pretty Peonies blooms and leaves completed it. I sprinkled on some PPP Sparkling Clear Sequins (4mm & 6mm) to kick it up a notch and coated the large bow with WOS. The sentiment is from Mat Stack 4.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Happy Birthday!

Yes...it's me...are you shocked! It seems like forever and a day since I've made and posted something. But here I am with a card for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

I followed the sketch pretty close, just a little change with the added borders. I think that's the rust showing through and lack of mojo. Some ancient paper fit my mood today along with a pretty little butterfly button I had on hand. It's threaded with some gold twine to compliment the metallic gold (4mm & 6mm) PPP sequins. My favorite Stitched Borders 2 die from PPP was used on the gingham paper. The sentiment and banner are by RC. A sweet simple card to get me back in the game!

Have a blessed day friends!


Tag You're It Challenge Reminder!

Hello, hello! You still have time to play along with Tag You're It challenge #69. I am honored to be their guest designer and have another inspiration tag for you! 

Once again my inspiration comes from Joyce's fun pompom topper. For mine, I used a length of tiny pompoms to create a flower center. The flower petals are PTI's Beautiful Blooms II. The tag is made from a Spellbinders postage die, MME paper and a little cat from a previous 12 Kits of Occasions kit. I had to put my tag on a card this time around...I sort of ran out of room for the sentiment...oops!!

Pop over to the Tag You're It blog to see more inspiration from the team. Thanks so much for stopping by. Your visits mean so much to me!


Many Thanks!

Hiya! I missed the boat on last week's PTI's Make it Monday  and didn't get my card entered ~ shucks. Lexi's challenge was called "Stamping Outside of the Box". I liked what I had made and thought I would share it anyway!

I've used the polka dot image from Mat Stack 4 along with Polka Dot Parade #6. The little dot comes from Beautiful Blooms II and those teeny dots stamped in Classic Kraft ink are from the Rustic Wreath set. My little patches of grass came from Love Lives Here. The other inks used are Berry Sorbet, Harvest Gold, Pale Peony and New Leaf. 

Have a delightful day!



Welcome! I have a card to share today for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch. I had die cut the flowers for last week's challenge but time got away from me and that one didn't happen! But they've found a new home on a card for them this week. It also works for the City Crafter Challenge.

I stamped the arrows from PRS's Journey Stamp Set then added some scored line. The sketchy die cut flowers were a die gifted to me from my sweet friend Michele. I just love that lady!! And finally, my ME hello was die cut from some MME paper.

The scored lines and stamped arrows fit the sketch and are my version of the black and white stripes for CCC. I've used the sketchy flowers for CCC too!

So there you have it, hope you like it!
